Mother! (2017)

SEPTEMBER 15, 2017 GENRE: PSYCHOLOGICAL SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REGULAR SCREENING) I don't read as much as I'd like, but even if I had all the time in the world I probably wouldn't read the Bible, as I got enough in (Catholic) grade school to know the basic gist, even if some of those particulars are fading in my memory. Show More Summary

It: Chapter One (2017)

SEPTEMBER 8, 2017 GENRE: SUPERNATURAL SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REGULAR SCREENING) Like pretty much everyone in my generation, I have vivid memories of watching the ABC miniseries of Stephen King's It, rewatching the taped broadcast enough to even remember some of the commercials that played during it. Show More Summary

Offerings (1989)

SEPTEMBER 7, 2017 GENRE: SLASHER SOURCE: STREAMING (YOUTUBE) A couple years ago, John Carpenter sued the makers of Lockout for ripping off Escape From New York a bit too much for his liking, and actually won, which set a potentially fascinating precedent for future lawsuits. Show More Summary

Red Christmas (2016)

AUGUST 30, 2017 GENRE: HOLIDAY, SLASHER SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REGULAR SCREENING) I thought it was a little weird that Red Christmas, an increasingly rare addition to the holiday slasher canon, would be released in August, but Silent Night Deadly Night 2 was released in April, so they're at least closer to the namesake season. Show More Summary

The Dark Tower (2017)

AUGUST 3, 2017 GENRE: SUPERNATURAL SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REGULAR SCREENING) If there's one benefit to my depressing lack of free time, it's that it leaves next to zero opportunities to revisit even a movie that I love, let alone a book. Show More Summary

Wish Upon (2017)

JULY 14, 2017 GENRE: SUPERNATURAL, TEEN SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REGULAR SCREENING) I know I'm not the target audience for teen horror movies, so all I really ask of them is that they're OK enough timekillers and something I can watch with my son in a few years when I deem him old enough for PG/PG-13 fare. Show More Summary

The Mummy (2017)

JUNE 25, 2017 GENRE: SUPERNATURAL SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REGULAR SCREENING) Much like DC (which is only now getting it right with Wonder Woman), Universal is going about their idea to create a new shared movie universe based on all of their classic monster characters - Dracula, Frankenstein, Wolfman, etc. Show More Summary

Here Alone (2016)

JUNE 21, 2017 GENRE: ZOMBIE SOURCE: STREAMING (ONLINE SCREENER) Since I'm a lazy asshole, over the years I've seen a number of films that were more or less exactly like ideas I had and never got around to fleshing out. But I'm neverShow More Summary

47 Meters Down (2017)

JUNE 18, 2017 GENRE: PREDATOR, SURVIVAL SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REGULAR SCREENING) If it were up to me (and nothing ever is, for the record), Universal would re-release Jaws every other summer, in honor of it not only being the originalShow More Summary

It Comes At Night (2017)

JUNE 9, 2017 GENRE: POST-APOCALYPTIC, THRILLER SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REGULAR SCREENING) I kept hearing how It Comes At Night's trailer was misleading and that it wasn't really a horror movie, so I rushed to see it on opening day (instead of The Mummy!) before I knew much else, as I had managed to not see a trailer yet and didn't want to press my luck. Show More Summary

Evil Ed (1995)

JUNE 7, 2017 GENRE: PSYCHOLOGICAL, SPLATTER SOURCE: BLU-RAY (REVIEW SCREENER) I remember reading about Evil Ed in Fangoria back in the 90s at some point, making a note to see it as soon as possible because it sounded so much in my wheelhouse. Show More Summary

Aaron's Blood (2016)

JUNE 1, 2017 GENRE: VAMPIRE SOURCE: DVD (OWN COLLECTION) Hey, have I mentioned that I have a kid now? I joke, of course - I know I can't talk (well, write) for five minutes (sentences) without bringing up my new, mostly wonderful job...Show More Summary

Alien: Covenant (2017)

MAY 21, 2017 GENRE: ALIEN SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REGULAR SCREENING) I don't know what it is about Prometheus that gets people so worked up on both sides of the argument, but I hope we don't have to listen to the same online shouting matches...Show More Summary

For A Few Zombies More (2015)

MAY 12, 2017 GENRE: ZOMBIE SOURCE: BLU-RAY (OWN COLLECTION) Considering how much I dislike watching sequels when I haven't seen the originals, AND how I try to balance out my sub-genres, I find it amusing that this and the previous HMAD review are for sequels to zombie movies I never saw. Show More Summary

Dead Rising: Endgame (2016)

APRIL 30, 2017 GENRE: VIDEO GAME, ZOMBIE SOURCE: STREAMING (ONLINE SCREENER) Not counting things like Final Fantasy, I can't skip entries in video game series any easier than I can skip movie sequels. I remember when Halo 3 came outShow More Summary

Phoenix Forgotten (2017)

APRIL 21, 2017 GENRE: ALIEN (?), MOCKUMENTARY SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REGULAR SCREENING) I can't recall if it was for an article, in a conversation, or maybe just a few tweets, but a while back I listed a few "rules" for making an effective...Show More Summary

Tank 432 (2015)

APRIL 11, 2017 GENRE: PSYCHOLOGICAL SOURCE: BLU-RAY (OWN COLLECTION) While I'm neither a scholar or even dedicated fan of Ben Wheatley (I've only seen two of his movies, but Free Fire is one of my most anticipated films of the year,Show More Summary

Life (2017)

MARCH 24, 2017 GENRE: ALIEN SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REGULAR SCREENING) It's often said that horror is the one genre that doesn't require any stars, because people just want to be scared and it's easier to do that when it's a complete unknown playing the lead as opposed to Tom Cruise (The Mummy, coming this summer!) or whoever. Show More Summary

Slaughterhouse (1987)

MARCH 14, 2017 GENRE: SLASHER SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REVIVAL SCREENING) I don't know why I never rented Slaughterhouse as a kid; I distinctly recall seeing it at my usual video store right next to the Silent Night Deadly Night series, and...Show More Summary

Kong: Skull Island (2017)

MARCH 12, 2017 GENRE: MONSTER SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REGULAR SCREENING) I was rarely as excited for a big blockbuster as I was for Peter Jackson's King Kong back in December of 2005. It came out the night I flew home to see my family for...Show More Summary
