The Super

The Super is pretty super but not super duper a ghost I know says. There’s some great creepy footage in this film. An old building is a great setting to build creepiness into suspense. As is with most mysteries, things are not as they seem. I’ll leave it up to you to decide if you […]

The Strangers: Prey at Night

I thought it looked cheesy when the tagline was “Let Us Prey.” and derivative but SOMETHING WAS TELLING ME ABOUT STRANGERS 2. This film is now as of writing this review streaming on Prime Video I saw the big guys’ low scores but SOMETHING WAS TELLING ME ABOUT STRANGERS 2 It came and went with […]

Diabolique (1955)

The biggest pat on the back for this film goes to the writers. The way the characters are developed turns the screw of intensity until finally the ending is revealed. If you haven’t seen it, let me say it is not like other endings, it is a magnificent one, set apart. Many writers were involved […]

Insidious

This is one of my favorite horror films of all time. It still gives me the chills when I watch it and I have seen it numerous times. Director James Wan uses clever practical effects and a very minimum number of CGI effects to make this film look and feel like a house of horrors […]

Pyewacket

I’ve seen a few films recently where people use the black arts or occult spells like The Alchemist’s Cookbook and A Dark Song. This is another to add to that list. Pyewacket (2017) 1h 30min | Horror, Thriller | 23 March 2018 (USA) A frustrated, angst-ridden teenage girl awakens something in the woods when she […]

But I can write and podcast stuff about movies here and get it off my chest. That is gratifying. I hope you enjoy. Listen in the […]

Most Beautiful Island

(A written and audio review) This is a last minute surprise for thriller/horror made in 2017. I watched it in utter delight, a really great film. Of course, I decided to share my enthusiasm with my voice, here on the podcast. I hope you enjoy. Listen to the episode on this film below. Below that […]

A Dark Song (Written and Audio Review)

Horror movies have talked about love and loss before but not usually this deeply. The issues are so deep in fact, one might question whether they belong in a horror film. They exist just the same and while watching this film you don’t just see them on screen, you absorb them. The longing of the […]

Swamp Thing & Them

(Audio and written review) “Swamp Thing” is a horror movie that at times may come across as a bit funny but it is meant as a serious film. It looks like a throw back to films like “The Creature from the Black Lagoon.” Continue reading my written review and/or listen to my podcast review below. […]
