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.

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.

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

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

The Girl With All The Gifts (2016)

FEBRUARY 25, 2017 GENRE: POST-APOCALYPTIC, ZOMBIE SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REGULAR SCREENING) With Walking Dead scoring massive ratings and World War Z more than doubling the gross of the previous highest grossing zombie film, I don't understand...Show More Summary

FEBRUARY 21, 2016 GENRE: SLASHER, THRILLER SOURCE: STREAMING (ONLINE SCREENER) If nothing else, I've made one thing perfectly clear over the years: I enjoy seeing Danielle Harris in my horror movies. So when I saw her name in the cast...Show More Summary

A Cure For Wellness (2016)

FEBRUARY 18, 2017 GENRE: MAD SCIENTIST, THRILLER SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REGULAR SCREENING) One of my favorite movies is Meet Joe Black, which a lot of people hated on account of it being so glacially paced, but for me I think that was part...Show More Summary

Happy Birthday, HMAD!

"Well my son turned ten just the other day, he said thanks for the ball dad, come on let's play!" Well, like Harry Chapin's poor kid, I will refuse to teach HMAD to throw a baseball, mainly because it's an internet site with no reason to know how to do that (also, I don't know how, either). Show More Summary

Rings (2017)

FEBRUARY 3, 2017 GENRE: GHOST, SUPERNATURAL SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REGULAR SCREENING) With the arrival of each new late-coming sequel (Blair Witch, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, etc.), I become more and more worried about the new Saw and Friday the 13th films that are coming in October. Show More Summary

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017)

JANUARY 27, 2017 GENRE: MAD SCIENTIST, MONSTER, ZOMBIE SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REGULAR SCREENING) In case it never dawned on you, projected film is nothing more than a series of still images played in succession, fast enough to create the...Show More Summary

Split (2016)

JANUARY 20, 2017 GENRE: PSYCHOLOGICAL, SURVIVAL SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REGULAR SCREENING) Following The Visit, it seems that working with the small budgets but (far as I know) creative freedom of a Blumhouse production (as opposed to expensive studio gigs where you might be at the whims of people like Will Smith) is a fine fit for M.
