Impressions: Scream 3

So in the history of the franchise, Scream 3 is often looked down on. I can certainly understand why because it is by far the silliest of the movies, but having recently rewatched it, I think it gets a bad rep. I also think the very silliness that turned people off to it makes a […]

Impressions: Pumpkinhead

Pumpkinhead is a 1988 horror film that had a limited release, but over the years, it has gotten a bit more love and a cult following. It is also notably the directorial debut for Stan Winston, a special effects artist who worked on Terminator 2, Batman Returns, and Jurassic Park. Given Winston’s main focus on […]

Impressions: Werewolves Within

Werewolves Within is a recent horror-comedy somewhat based on a VR game with the same name. While I haven’t personally played the VR game, the premise is one that many people are aware of. If you’ve ever play Town of Salem, Mafia, or Werewolf, then you get the gist of it. Somebody is a werewolf, […]

Impressions: Franchise Ranking- Saw

So I had previously done a franchise ranking for Friday the 13th. Like many genre fans, with the release of Spiral, I felt compelled to rewatch all of Saw. I thought I would give you my overall franchise ranking and why for each movie. I will warn now there are going to be A LOT […]

Impressions: Ghost Shark

I am always a bit hesitant when reviewing these types of movies. I have spoken openly in the past about not liking that the “so bad it’s good” variety of creature features have taken over the market. I also think that “so bad it’s good” movies require a little effort to be entertaining and, well, […]

Impressions: Aquaslash

Aquaslash was a 2019 indie horror film that takes place in the unique setting of a water park. The movie was announced with a still of 3 girls sliding down a slide towards a set of blades making an X, thus setting up how the kills would happen. Honestly, I was intrigued. The premise and […]

Impressions: Friday the 13th and Modern Audiences

So briefly, before we get into the meat of this Impressions, Happy Mother’s Day (if a little late). I have talked about Friday the 13th in the past, giving it the top spot on my franchise ranking, although there is a compelling case for saying Part II is better. But I digress; I wanted to […]

Impressions: Scream 2

Before we get into the meat of the piece, part of what I need to discuss is my feelings about the killers in the different movies, so I will be spoiling that. If you haven’t seen the movies, the big reveal of who the killers are is important in each of the Scream movies. That […]

Impressions: The Great Mouse Detective and The Bronze Age of Disney

The Great Mouse Detective is the best Disney movie you’ve never seen. Okay, that’s not entirely accurate, it’s a bit rough at times to call it “the best”, and at least some of you have seen it. It is, however, certainly one of the most underrated Disney flicks. The movie is based on the Basil […]

Impressions: Ginger Snaps

In the long history of movies for/about teenage girls, we’ve seen a wide variety of ways to approach the struggles of puberty, coming into your sexuality, growing and sometimes distancing from the important girl friends in your life, etc. I have seen many, but shamefully until recently, I had never actually gotten around to Ginger […]
