Impressions: Halloween III: Season of the Witch

Arguably the most controversial entry in the Halloween franchise, which is saying something. A franchise was multiple different canons that took wildly different directions, and fans devoted to what they believe is the best canon in stark contrast to those that preferred others. Halloween went from meaning to be a stand-alone movie, to part of a canon following Michael’s sister, a canon following Michael’s niece, … Continue reading Impressions: Halloween III: Season of the Witch

Impressions: M*A*S*H- Trick or Treatment

Trick or Treatment is the second episode of the final season of M*A*S*H. It is also the only Halloween episode of the series. Something I have noticed in my digging into TV classics is that while Halloween episodes are considered pretty standard for sitcoms in the modern age, it was less so the case for a lot of older shows. A few will have an … Continue reading Impressions: M*A*S*H- Trick or Treatment

Impressions: Favorite 5 Slasher Movies

Several months ago, I did a short list of some of my favorite horror movies. I lamented how hard it was to narrow down to just a few favorites.

Impressions: The Halloween and Friday the 13th Movies We Almost Had

Thanks to their recent addition on Shudder, I decided to give one of my favorite franchise’s another viewing, Friday the 13th. This led me down the road of contemplation, and I was reminded how Friday the 13th part IV and Halloween 4 both setup something sort of similar, that they then completely abandoned. I am sure many genre fans can already guess at what I … Continue reading Impressions: The Halloween and Friday the 13th Movies We Almost Had

Impressions: Great Horror Intros

The opening act of every movie is fairly important. It is what will help set the tone for the rest of our journey, and usually, the goal is to make sure to grab you early to keep your attention. With horror movies, it is especially important because generally, after the intro, we are left with little horror for a while, so we need something exciting … Continue reading Impressions: Great Horror Intros

My Favorite Horror Movies that were Released in October

October is kind of a mixed bag as far as horror releases. Shockingly it’s not a month that has many of them; however, a lot of significant hits have happened in October (for obvious reasons). To celebrate this “holy” of horror months, I thought I would talk about some of my personal favorite October releases over the years. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre The Texas Chainsaw … Continue reading My Favorite Horror Movies that were Released in October
