31 Days of Horror: Host

Host was a bit of a surprise for many people in 2020. The goal with Host was to take the quarantine from Covid-19 and use it both as inspiration as well as working within the limitations to make a horror movie. Given all the limitations (time, how they could shoot it, etc.), they managed to […]

31 Days of Horror: Final Destination

The Final Destination franchise is something else. Of the horror franchises (that I have seen all of), it is one that I feel starts off pretty weak but then doesn’t really drop. Some of the movies are a little bit worse than the others, but I think the overall quality is consistent. Just not high. […]

Willow Farm Adventures: Year One- Fall Week One

And we are in fall! Fall is a crazy season because there are many varieties of crops, but it is also the last push before winter when farming basically shuts down. There are two ways to stay successful during the winter. Spend fall finishing out the pantry in the community center to get the greenhouse, […]

31 Days of Horror: Hellraiser

I have an… odd relationship with the Hellraiser franchise. I appreciate Clive Barker a lot, and I really enjoy a few of the movies. However, I also live in a sort of denial about them, where the 80s cheese in my mind overcomes how dark and messed up I find these movies. The end result […]

31 Days of Horror: Sinister

It hasn’t been so long since I wrote about this movie, so I don’t have to just do another review. My brief take is that there are some really cool ideas in this movie, but I think it could have been better if it leaned more crime thriller (have it be a cult or Ellison […]

31 Days of Horror: Victor Crowley

So I will be keeping this one brief because, simply put, the movie was not for me. It felt like it leaned harder into being a comedy overall and had more moments outside of the “horror” that were amusing. However, it just isn’t my taste. I laughed at a few jokes, was irked by some, […]

31 Days of Horror: Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

Sorry, we are so behind on this. It was a hard, hard week for me. But moving on to the next movie. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Like many people my age, I grew up on the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark books. I have a distinct memory of being in […]

31 Days of Horror: Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2

So there has been a reclaiming of sorts of this movie within the horror community. That it is better than many of us gave it credit for. I was young the first time I watched it, so I didn’t care for it. I watched it again more recently (but still a few years ago), and […]

31 Days of Horror: Creepshow- The Companion/Lydia Layne’s Better Half

So this was my first dive into anything Creepshow. The movies had always been one of those dark marks on my “I can’t believe I haven’t seen this yet” list. I like horror anthologies. I often feel as though we get caught up in long-form and forget that short but sweet little pieces can be […]
