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.

I have a problem with these questions overall because they often involve interpretations that kids are simply not naturally going to come to. However, I concede there is value in reading children’s media critically to make sure we counter messages that we don’t mean to give […]

So if you are part of the horror community at all, you have likely at least heard of Host, a movie that just released on Shudder. The movie took approximately 12 weeks to complete, from concept to execution. The plan – make a movie about the lockdown. From there, we got a rather interesting “found […]

Impressions: Favorite 5 Creature Features

A while ago, I did a short list of some favorite horror movies. In trying to edit that down, I struggled to pick out which movies would make it and which would not. I thought to expand on that list and do some of my favorite for various subgenres. To kick-off, I thought we would […]

Impressions: Unfriended

I am more than a little late to the Unfriended party, but I was curious, so I took it when I got the chance to watch. I knew the basic idea and the gist of the story, but other than it being considered a disappointment, I went in fairly blind. When approaching my thoughts on […]
