Blu-ray/DVD Review: OBSESSION (1976)

There are some films so classic they withstand the test of time. Brian DePalma, director of the classic horror film Carrie, crafted OBESESSION along with writer Paul Schrader, a film that is still riveting, suspenseful and shocking 43 years after its release.

Movie Reviews: SCARECROWS (2018)

Sound advice from “The Son” in Stuart (Stu) Stone’s SCARECROWS, a bumpkin survival film. But if we’re talking in terms of creating a successfully tense but funny horror movie with hints of gore... trespassing wasn’t the issue.

Movie Review: DE NIRO & DE PALMA: THE EARLY FILMS

Sometimes I forget that I’ve actually seen some of Brian De Palma’s work. His movies have varied, but he will always be the director of one of my favorite movies, Carrie. I recently have been introduced to more of his work and am anticipating exploring his filmography.

Movie Review: BEHIND THE WALLS (2018)

Movie Review: BEHIND THE WALLS (2018)

I always wondered how I would feel if I moved into a haunted house.  Of course, I would be terrified, but if I could survive it I would at least want there to be a story, a reason, a plot, behind the horrors and monsters that dwell inside. Unfortunately, James and Jon Kondelik do a disservice to the Harper family in BEHIND THE WALLS by robbing them (and more importantly- robbing us) from rhyme or reason.

Movie Review: RUST CREEK (2018)

Life often throws us curveballs. Sometimes it happens when we’re down on our luck and other times it’s when we feel high on life. Either way they tend to come out of nowhere and sometimes can change our journey completely. A life lesson that we never thought we’d have.

Blu-ray/DVD Review: BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE (2018)

The El Royale is a motel that sits directly on the border of California and Nevada, split directly down the middle. Its motley brand of customers are similarly split down the middle: between right and wrong, good and bad. God and no God. And while it’s tough to decide who to side with, I can at least confirm that writer/director Drew Goddard sided right with BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE.

Blu-ray/DVD Review: BLOODY BIRTHDAY (1981)

Apparently, I’m now gaining a love for the killer kids subgenre. I’ve always adored Village of the Damned (yes, even the John Carpenter remake) and would pretend I had their powers when I was little.
