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 […]

31 Days of Horror: Hell House LLC

I first saw this movie a little over a year ago, and to be honest, I wasn’t expecting much. It was not any expectations from the movie itself; I just don’t tend to love this subgenre (although I have seen more movies that make me a believer than not lately). I was thoroughly impressed. It […]

31 Days of Horror: The Birds

It has been several years since I have visited this classic. Long enough that a few of the scenes actually managed to have a surprisingly strong impact for a repeat viewing. I rather adore this film, and while I think parts of it struggle a bit with age, it still holds up overall. I also […]

31 Days of Horror: Frankenstein (1931)

I’ve talked before about my sort of odd relationship with horror over the years. How eventually, a horror film class pushed me deeply into the horror community. This movie, in particular, was a massive part of that. I was already starting to slant that way because of the class, but this one was the straw. […]

31 Days of Horror: Tucker and Dale vs. Evil

So this is going to be a rather mushy entry. Aside from being a fun movie, Tucker and Dale vs. Evil might be one of the most wholesome movies I have ever seen. Show someone the scene of the young man diving headfirst into a woodchipper and say that then see the looks you get. […]
