Better Watch Out Review
It’s safe to say that I’ve officially crossed over into “impressing myself” territory. Just a few short days ago, I was sharing how each year during Christmas time, I fail miserably at watching holiday-themed horror flicks. Now, here I am, on my third one in just as many days. For tonight’s viewing pleasure, I finally sat down with Chris Peckover’s Better Watch Out.

Better Watch Out Guest Review
So by turning on VRV, I decided to watch one of the movies on my viewing list while I gamed. The choice of the day — 2016’s Better Watch Out. The film claims to be a play on the old home invasion films, but it has one huge twist during half of the film that I can not say without giving it away. So it is a bit of a true challenge to review this film without giving away [...]
There is a horror film for every holiday imaginable at this point. Why should Easter be any different, right? Oddly enough, however, I have never seen any of the myriad of killer rabbit flicks out there. I wanted to change that this year, so I hunted down a copy of Tony Urban’s half-man half-rabbit film, Kottentail.

Silent Night Mini-Review
What is not to love about Christmas movies? Especially Christmas movies that fall into the “slasher” category. There are countless slasher-themed holiday movies, with the late 70’s and early 80’s bringing some of the best. The best known holiday horror movie would more than likely be Silent Night, Deadly Night, coming at a time when mothers were against anything violent in a Christmas movie. My personal favorite pick would be the Tales From The Crypt episode, “And All Through [...]
Dismembering Christmas Review
Out of all of the ‘throwback’ slashers that I’ve watched over the past few years, one of the more enjoyable ones was the indie gem, Don’t Go to the Reunion. Needless to say, when the same studio that brought that film to life, Slasher Studios, released news of an upcoming holiday project, I was elated. I could not wait for the next film, as I was sure it’d be another great entry in the slasher sub-genre. After months and [...]
A Christmas Horror Story Review
I’ve been doing this little horror film review gig for about four years now and every year around this time, I get in the mood to watch some good ol’ Christmas-themed horror flicks, naturally. It seems, however, that every year, Christmas comes and goes and sadly, I really never actually review any of the films that I have planned. Well, hopefully I can change that this year, starting with this bad boy, A Christmas Horror Story with segments directed by [...]
