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. […]

31 Days of Horror: Hatchet III

Shockingly I found this to be the best of the movies. The plot is super weakened now, but this movie had more moments of real tension and horror. It was still a shaky homage to slasher trash, but it got closer to what I felt the goal always was. A tribute that can stand alone. […]

31 Days of Horror: Deep Blue Sea

I am going to state bluntly that I loathe that shark horror makes people afraid of actual sharks. I adore sharks. I was that kid obsessed with marine biology, and a lot of it was focused on sharks. For the brief time I was in school for marine biology, my intent was to work with […]

31 Days of Horror: Hatchet II

Inspired by my Hatchet’s revisit, I decided to finally pull the trigger on at least one of the sequels. Hatchet II picks up immediately where Hatchet left off, with Marybeth (now played by Danielle Harris) being rescued. She discovers that she is tied to Victor, wants revenge, etc. Alright, much like Hatchet, Hatchet II feels […]

31 Days of Horror: Hatchet

So this was another rewatch for me, and I will admit that I am torn much like with my first viewing. I appreciate what Hatchet was attempting to do. It wanted to do an homage to the 80s slasher. You have the cold opening, the backstory that creates a legend, the supernatural killer, the in […]

31 Days of Horror: Behind the Mask

There is a lot to talk about in Behind the Mask. Who is Leslie’s mentor, many guessing Billy from Black Christmas? The over-emphasis on virginity for the final girl, in my opinion. The bridge between horror and comedy. A lot is happening in this movie, and it is such an enjoyable movie that going back […]
