It Was Really Traumatic

Fury of the Demon Review

From time to time, I like to take breaks from watching traditional films and focus more on documentaries. I watched and reviewed one last week and I have been checking some out on Netflix as well. Luckily, I also happened to have another one, unwatched, right on my shelf with tons of other still sealed flicks. There was not better time than tonight to watch Fabian Delage’s Fury of the Demon.

Real Clowns Are Not Scary

Wrinkles the Clown Review

I was an 80’s baby, which means I was still fairly young when the internet really started to boom. Even still, I’ve never been up on all of these viral sensations, creepypastas, or whatever else you want to call them. Apparently there is one so effective it deserves a documentary exploring its lore. I’m referring to Wrinkles the Clown and the documentary by Michael Beach Nichols.

Parents in Florida can hire Wrinkles the Clown to scare their children [...]

Right to the Edge of Your Seat

Scary Stories Review

When I was younger, I was terrified of almost everything. I would have nightmares more often than not and was even frightened of my own toys at times. The My Buddy doll that somewhat resembles Chucky comes to mind. Still, whenever the opportunity to share ghost stories with my brother, sisters, and cousins presented itself, I grew excited and couldn’t wait to hear what we could cook up. In addition, I’d love to have my older sister read various tales [...]

Danger God Review

A few months back, Quentin Tarantino released a film which starred Brad Pitt as a stunt man and double to a famous actor. Pitt’s character was a bit over the top at times, but believe it or not, his Cliff Booth was an amalgamation of a few different real-life individuals. One of these badass individuals was prolific actor and stunt man, Gary Kent, whose life and career is showcased in Joe O’Connell’s documentary, Danger God.

He Had 900 Teeth

Master of Dark Shadows Review

Master of Dark Shadows movie review

Growing up, I was never a fan of documentaries. I’m not sure if I had some sort of aversion to learning new things or just found them boring. All I know is the mere mention of a documentary and I was immediately turned off to the entire viewing experience. Fast forward to now and I can’t get enough of these bad boys. My favorite, of course, being anything to do with the horror genre. Today, I had the pleasure of [...]

Then It’s Not a Real Giallo

All the Colors of Giallo Review

All the Colors of Giallo Documentary Review

Growing up in a large [and loud] Italian family, I remember my excitement when I first learned of the huge influence the culture has had on the horror genre. Learning, at a young age, that there were Italian filmmakers creating some of the most memorable films the genre has seen was something of great pride for me. Naturally, when I heard of a new documentary that takes a closer look into the evolution of the giallo film, I knew I [...]
