    The Positively True Adventures of the Alleged Texas Cheerleader Murdering Mom

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Made in 1993 as a made for TV movie and based on a true story with the actual events having been ramped up with a melodramatic overtone this film is certainly one of the more interesting pieces I’ve stumbled across…it was directed by Micharl Ritchi and written by Jane Anderson.

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I wasn’t quite sure really what I was getting myself into when I decided to see this year out with the 1980 part psychological horror, part slasher, part feel good film of the decade “Christmas Evil”…I chose it because I was convinced it was going to be just another generic by the numbers slasher movie…in short I was expecting a totally unoriginal snorefest. I was wrong.
    Christmas evil was written and Directed by Lewis Jackson, who to this date has…
