    ★★★★★

    The mortuary collection.

    One of those movies that has appeared and reappeared in my life for the last 25 years and it’s always made me uneasy. Small New England town with dark secrets that feels like Lovecraft Stephen King vibes yanks my chain so hard as far as personal tastes go—Illuminating with its fog shrouded seaside mist filled atmosfear and likable northeast local yokel characters stuck in one of the best twilight zone episodes never made.

    This movie has been…

    The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

    ★★★★★

    A trip to no-hopesville—a spiral into unhinged southern gothic terror.

    A beautifully shot slice of sun-choked Texas sizzle that’s 110% certified grade-A impenetrable to criticism grizzle... and one of the most important films ever made—horror in its purist form. The kind of raw sweat-drenched monolithic genre art that extinguishes a symbolic flame of hope inside of you, leaving but an empty husk of a viewer... forever changed.

    The ultimate horror film.

    The Bone Collector

    ★★½

    Late 90’s cat and mouse mystery thriller with a solid cast is, at least for me, best remembered for instilling fear in the hearts of taxi cab passengers far and wide. Never reaches the heights of some other Se7en era serial killer swill and kinda plays it a bit to straight for me but it’s a decent little Wednesday night distraction from reality.

    I remember reading the book during the summer right before this came out and eventually seeing this theatrically with my folks. I still remember the tv spots for this movie lol—Time flies.

    ★★½

    This movie looks/sounds great, wears its influences on its sleeve, and features another terrific turn from Matilda Lutz… but I dunno. I didn’t really know what to expect going in and there’s definitely a lot I really liked—the slow buildup, isolated setting, the wonderful set design, and nicely constructed atmosphere… but the last act didn’t quite work it’s intended magic on me and sometimes those sleeved influences felt a little loud.

    Still though, I kinda dig this and admire that they they tossed Texas…

    Fear Street: 1978

    ★★★½

    Way more my speed than the first entry—its less frantic, felt more lived in, and the the duo of Emily Rudd and Sadie Sink worked way more for me than our leads in 1994.

    I originally groaned when I saw the near two hour run time… with bloated slop-fest vibes threatening to kill my mood but color me surprised… this thing flew by for me with the 45 minute buildup kinda hitting my sweet spot? I liked how the characters…
