Alien & Intruders: Rewatchable Horror 1

When it comes to rewatchable, these two are at the top of the list. Hear me talk about why I started my series on Rewatchable Horror movies with these two. Note that “Intruders” was first called “Shut In.”

3 Horrors: Isolation, In the Tall Grass, & Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

I talk about three horror movies in this episode. Isolation is the one I liked the best. You’ll have to see if you agree with me on all three. I liked what they did with practical effects and a small budget. Long Live indy horror like “Isolation.”

Movies From My New House

Some existential, rambling thoughts from me then previews of This is Spinal Tap, Fighting With My Family, The Cabin in the Woods, & The Hamiltons. Spinal Tap got a 7.9/11 on IMDB ;)

Joker

My audio review of joker. As I tell my son, I needed to speak to my microphone a little after seeing it. This is MY experience of this quite remarkable and wonderful film. It is of course imperfect, just like Joker himself. 8/10.
