Movie Review: BLOOD HARVEST

Movie Review: BLOOD HARVEST

In our lives, there are events and movies that make us go, "I just can't even with this." BLOOD HARVEST is a 2016 full-length feature hailing from Northern Ireland. It was written and directed by George Clark. The gist is this, murders are occurring where the victim's blood was drained from their bodies. Detective Jack Chaplin (Robert Render) is convinced it's vampires, you know, like you do.

Movie Review: DELIRIUM

Movie Review: DELIRIUM

The latest film from director Johnny Martin, DELIRIUM, tells the story of a group of friends who call themselves "The Hell Gang". In order to to initiate a new member into their group, they dare a new recruit named Eddie (Ian Bamberg), to walk all the way to the front porch of a notoriously spooky house and back, while documenting the journey with a camera they provide him with. After they strap a camera to him and send him on his way, they await his return which, as you probably guessed, doesn't ever come. After the group realizes they should probably go look for Eddie, they make their way into the abandoned house expecting Eddie to be there ready with a prank up his sleeve, but soon find themselves trapped in a real life nightmare.

Movie Review: 10.31

Hi again ghosts and ghouls! It's a new year - can you believe 2018 is here already? I'm shocked at just how quickly 2017 flew by. I have a new-found appreciation for haunts, and with that, my love for horror came back ten-fold (it was never gone...just reignited), so I've been a horror-watching machine.

Movie Review: INSIDE

Movie Review: INSIDE

Upon the release of director Miguel Angel Vivas’ remake of the unnerving 2007 horror hit INSIDE, this new version brings its own twists and turns to the table. I actually hadn’t heard much about this remake until recently, leaving me very curious to what this variation would have to offer. Being that the original is quite gruesome and unforgiving, I feel it is up to the individual to decide whether or not it holds up to them, or if it stands on its own as a new presence in the genre.

Blu-ray/DVD Review: IT

Blu-ray/DVD Review: IT

Stephen King's "It" holds a very polarizing place in my heart. The first ever blog post that I wrote on Nightmarish Conjurings was of my disappointment of the book, most notably the last two hundred pages or so. However, that hasn't stopped my excitement for the film adaptation of IT. The movie had been in development for the past 7 years, with high profile changes in both the director and lead star of Pennywise. Now, with only a few days separating the arrival of the film nationwide, the question remains, does director Andy Muschietti's IT live up to all the hype?

"A popular college student graciously accepts a social outcast’s online friend request, but soon finds herself fighting a demonic presence that wants to make her lonely by killing her closest friends."
