    Took a bit of reflecting for this one to really sink in for me, and realize that I really do think this one was a pretty great movie. It’s a slow burn movie (almost too slow occasionally), and it follows a family moving into the house of their grandmother/mother who went missing. Edna was her name, and she goes missing after having problems with remembering things, and her mind continues to deteriorate. It’s a dark tale, one that has a…

    The older I get I seem to love Lovecraftian type movies more and more. Not that I didn’t love them before, but with movies like this, Color Out of Space, The Void, and more we are talking about stuff that I just absolutely love. Out of all of those, this one is much more totally of an art house horror movie, and I really loved that about this. It takes a bit of time to establish the tone and setting…

  • Possessor



    Rounding out the reviews for this week of new releases that I was hyped for it Possessor, that I have been eagerly waiting for for what seems like forever. I was searching for the release date every week for a good couple of months to see when this one would be coming out, and it finally did! Of course this is Brandon Cronenberg's second film (of course that Cronenberg's son), and what a film he has made here.

    This will…

    The movie looks fantastic with a great setting, and many great locations that the movie is…

    Child's Play


    For those that know me, they know that Child’s Play holds one of the most special places in my heart. In many ways my terror towards the doll Chucky got me into horror, and facing my fears of dolls in general. The entire franchise I have watched many times over, and I still do fairly often when I am wanting some nice entertaining killer doll movies. I was still excited though about the idea of this movie. I will not…

  • Midsommar



    I will certainly have to second to Steven Francis in saying that the movie is certainly hard to rate. There are a lot of different reasons for that which I will get into, but my overall thoughts about the movie is that I liked it. I didn't love it in all honesty, but I had a good time and will likely be picking this one up when it comes out.

    Firstly the movie's technical elements are very strong. The cinematography…
