Impressions: Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2022

If I were to pick one of the most inconsistent horror franchises, TCM might be the top but is for sure top 3. There are solid movies, dumb but fun movies, weird movies, and just bad movies, all making up this franchise. The first suffers from age and some other issues, but I think it is an important part of horror history. I found the … Continue reading Impressions: Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2022

Impressions: Masters of Horror- The Washingtonians

Warning for a graphic screenshot The Washingtonians was the 12th episode of the 2nd season of The Master of Horror. It was directed by Peter Medak, who doesn’t have the most notable directing career of the people involved with this show; he did, however, direct the masterpiece The Changeling. So his filmography overall might not stand out to those that aren’t the most devoted of … Continue reading Impressions: Masters of Horror- The Washingtonians

Impressions: Valentine

Valentine is a slasher movie from 2001 following a group of women being hunted down and killed in the lead-up to Valentine’s day. It has a pretty decent cast list, including David Boreanaz and Denise Richards during her hay day, but is ultimately a pretty paint-by-numbers slasher flick that didn’t really manage to stand out, especially in the post Scream world. I warn you this … Continue reading Impressions: Valentine

A lot of people have seen this whacky comedy, with honestly a few horror antics thrown in, but some might not have. Others still might be like me and haven’t revisited it in a long time. It’s… an interesting adaptation, so with that. … Continue reading Impressions: Scrooged

Impressions: Masters of Horror- Right to Die

So I am not going to lie – one of the interesting parts about going through this series for me has been the little bits of callbacks to big things that happened during the early 2000s. I talked about this with the Homecoming episode, which was very much in your face about it. Right to Die sort of went down the same path, although in … Continue reading Impressions: Masters of Horror- Right to Die

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 practical effects, one of the reasons that Pumpkinhead has such … Continue reading Impressions: Pumpkinhead
