Jigsaw (2017)

OCTOBER 25, 2017 GENRE: SERIAL KILLER, SURVIVAL SOURCE: THEATRICAL (PREMIERE SCREENING) Not for nothing, but when I asked anyone who'd listen (OK, let's be honest: I just complained on Twitter) to make another Saw movie, I thought it was understood that I wanted one that resolved Hoffman's fate, showed how Gordon would carry on the legacy, etc. Show More Summary

Leatherface (2017)

OCTOBER 23, 2017 GENRE: SURVIVAL, THRILLER SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REGULAR SCREENING) When I realized I would be out of town when Leatherface screened at Screamfest, I was devastated, as I pride myself on my occasionally preternatural ability...Show More Summary

Happy Death Day (2017)

OCTOBER 16, 2017 GENRE: SLASHER SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REGULAR SCREENING) Full disclosure: my friend was a co-producer on Happy Death Day. Fuller disclosure: I was so tired when I watched it that I actually forgot about that until it was like halfway over, and I was already a big fan of what it was doing by then. Show More Summary

New Beverly All Night Horrorthon (2017)

OCTOBER 7, 2017 GENRE: EVERYTHING! SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REVIVAL SCREENING) For the past couple years I've written up my New Beverly All Nighter experiences for BirthMoviesDeath, but I had to post something else this week and HMAD's been getting neglected so I figured I'd bring it back here for a change. Show More Summary

Flatliners (2017)

SEPTEMBER 30, 2017 GENRE: SUPERNATURAL, THRILLER SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REGULAR SCREENING) Full disclosure, right off the bat - someone pulled a fire alarm during my showing of Flatliners and we had to file out with about twenty minutes left in the film. Show More Summary

Eyeball (1975)

SEPTEMBER 27, 2017 GENRE: GIALLO SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REVIVAL SCREENING) Usually, the first movie at a New Beverly double feature is the one people would really want to see, followed by a second, lesser film that plays for the die-hards while everyone else goes home feeling that they got their money's worth. Show More Summary

Jeepers Creepers 3 (2017)

SEPTEMBER 26, 2017 GENRE: MONSTER, SUPERNATURAL SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REGULAR SCREENING) Much like Cropsey, the Creeper is a cool villain that deserves better vehicles to show what they can do, as Jeepers Creepers 3 continues the series'...Show More Summary

Friend Request (2016)

SEPTEMBER 22, 2017 GENRE: GHOST, REVENGE SOURCE: THEATRICAL (REGULAR SCREENING) I've seen a couple people make the joke that Friend Request looks like something one might mock up for a film that needed a cheesy horror movie playing in...Show More Summary

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
