I like to consider myself a bit of an expert on The Exorcist, as the original movie from 1973, is by my account, the scariest movie ever released. I’ve read (and reviewed) the books, The Exorcist and Legion by William Peter Blatty and I have to say this new series based on these books has outdone itself. [Read more…]
In this moviegoers’ opinion, this is more of a modern day morality movie, a creature feature more than a horror movie. With that, it is a fascinating concept about how people would deal with actually manifesting their fears and toxins into a living breathing being and would they be able to do away with them when the time came.
This is, in my opinion, a damn fine start to director Bobby Miller’s career and I, for one, am looking forward to seeing what else he comes up with in the future. [Read more…]
Jackie Zwirn interviews Brian Nagel, producer and cast member of the new indie horror feature Clowntown, about what inspired the movie, and the fears many have of clowns. [Read more…]
Despite glaring plot issues, the horror element did pick up once people of import started getting killed and captured. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to keep me from playing Candy Crush on my phone, during the rest of the movie.
Part of the reason why is that even though the horror got better, there were still so many questions about motive and background that nagged at me the entire time. [Read more…]
Can a sleeper Sci-Fi movie capture an audience? It’s not unusual, but these days it feels like a rarity. With sci-fi like “The Martian” garnering Oscar nominations, do films like “Synchronicity” have a shot?
Well, some films do, but I’m not sure “Synchronicity” is going to be one of them. [Read more…]
Northmen – A Viking Saga is the Viking version of Braveheart. While there are some historical inaccuracies, and a couple of all-too-convenient plot issues, this is a super fun movie filled with gory battles, beautiful scenery and a couple of epic performances. I was highly entertained. [Read more…]
More often than not, sequels do not do justice to their predecessors. Sinister 2 doesn’t fall into the sequel trap.
While it may help if you see the first Sinister, you don’t have to see it to appreciate the film. It’s a stand-alone horror film all on it’s own. And as a continuation, I think it’s pretty damned good. [Read more…]
As a suspense thriller, Return to Sender isn’t very suspenseful. But that doesn’t mean it’s not worth the watch, or that it wasn’t a decent film. I find it more like homage to women who have been sexually assaulted. I find that most of the reviewers who panned it, were male. It’s a revenge story. One that I think any woman, who has been on the receiving end of unwarranted sexual attention of any kind, might enjoy. [Read more…]
If you LOVE suspense, I-Lived might not be the movie for you. I didn’t find it suspenseful at all. While I loved the concept behind I-Lived, I though it was poorly executed. [Read more…]
This movie is neither extremely funny nor scary, but it’s got that campy kind of charm that makes it a potential for a cult classic, especially since the two stars are moderately well known.
It’s the kind of film you’d watch with your friends late at night, while drinking and eating pizza and popcorn, and thoroughly MST3King it. [Read more…]
Overall, this is a good film and I think the target audience will really like it. It had several surprise “gotcha” moments that made me jump a bit, but when you compare it to the ultimate and classic possession film, The Exorcist, it falls completely short. [Read more…]
