This is Us

After seeing Us I think I can safely say the scariest thing about it was the trailer. I did not hate it, though. In fact, I thought it was a well-done horror film, and I am glad it did well at the box office and resonated with people. I just came out of it feeling

The Crow

25 years ago, The Crow was released. I saw it then, a few more times over the years on VHS, DVD, and now, 25 years later, I’ve just seen it on Blu-ray, with better picture and sound than I’d ever seen it before. Still just as incredibly beautiful and tragic, and I’ve only noticed more

Eastrail 177 Trilogy

I loved every moment of every film (Unbreakable/Split/Glass) in the Eastrail 177 Trilogy. Now that this trilogy is complete, I’m going to have to think long and hard about where it fits into my “Best Movie Trilogies of All Time” list. I think it might actually make the top 10. Of the the 3 movies,

It Takes a Nation of Zombies to Hold Us Back

Xavier Burgin’s documentary, Horror Noire, which is taken from the book of the same name, is required viewing for horror fans, film fans, and people interested in the Civil Rights movement. The last one is a particularly heady subject that usually only comes up in horror circles during discussions about George Romero and his hordes

Mandy and the Art of Destruction

About the only other recent film to divide audiences as much as Mandy did was Hereditary. I liked them both. I’ll take arthouse horror any day over the 34th creepy doll/nun/possessed child movie. Another Saw? No thanks. Having watched horror movies since the early 1970s, I crave originality and the unexpected. I want something I

First Time Watch of Suspiria (1977 & 2018)

I generally don’t subscribe to the idea of comparing two things in the context of, for example, who played The Joker better, Jack Nicholson or Heath Ledger? Because, I can enjoy them both greatly, but separately, as their own thing, their own interpretations. That’s how I feel about The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and its remake,

How It Ends — A Movie with No Ending

Netflix has come out with a lot of amazing original horror content, both in movies and series. But, Netflix creates so much original content now, that it’s actually very easy for releases to get lost in the mix. Obviously, the best content like Stranger Things and Bird Box are going to rise to the top

Netflix + Black Mirror + Video Games = Bandersnatch

Sooo, that’s what the creators of Black Mirror have been up to. Released just today on Netflix, is a new interactive Black Mirror film, called Bandersnatch. It’s a decision-based game, where you can go down different avenues, and ultimately get different endings, based on the choices you make. This of course is nothing new; this

Bill Rebane and His Shooting Ranch

Gleason, Wisconsin has a population of roughly 200 people and growing up, I was one of them. It’s a town where the family farm still struggles to survive and you have to make the 15-mile trip into the “city” for groceries and school. In short, it’s not an area people generally move to. But a

Cam Explained

Nothing supernatural is going on in Netflix’s new horror movie Cam. No ghosts in the machine or doppelgangers it turns out. However, it’s not science fiction either, a “what if” as our technology continues to evolve. No, what’s most terrifying about what happens in Cam is that technically, everything that we see happen is already
