I sincerely apologize to any of my readers who don’t watch Stranger Things when I compose posts about the show. I was skeptical of its premise when it first started gaining popularity, and trust me when I say I resisted hopping on the bandwagon for quite an extended period of time. As you likely know … More Stranger Things – yet another update
If you’ve seen the movie The Conjuring, there is a chance that you have heard of Ed and Lorraine Warren. It’s additionally possible if you’ve seen The Conjuring 2, Annabelle, The Nun, or essentially any film in which that creepy-ass Annabelle doll makes an appearance. The film The Conjuring is an adaptation of a rather … More Get to know Ed and Lorraine Warren
If you watch horror or thriller movies to any extent, there is a good chance you’ve seen Kate Siegel doing her thang on the big screen. The first time I watched something featuring her work was when I watched ‘Hush’, which is a phenomenal thriller, and I’ve been seeing her much more as of late … More Profile: Kate Siegel
Horror movies are one of my favourite genres to watch, as I’ve mentioned many times before here on my blog. I’m not sure what the says about me as a person, but hey, to each their own. As much as I enjoy horror movies, I find it a little irritating that so many of them … More Horror movies: A predictable genre
I can recall watching the trailer for The Platform a few months ago via Facebook. My sister tagged me in it as she is fully aware of my love for dark and disturbing movies, and once I viewed the trailer I made a mental note to tune into this movie once it became available to watch. In … More Have you watched The Platform?
I love Emma Watson. I think she is an incredibly classy, female-empowering, sophisticated woman, and she’s also a great actress to boot. So, when I saw she was one of the main characters in the movie Regression, I made a mental note to watch it. Regression is a “2015 psychological thriller mystery film directed, produced and written by Alejandro Amenábar. The … More Have you seen Regression?
I’m a self-proclaimed horror movie buff. You likely already knew this based on how often I review scary flicks and discuss the supernatural realm in general, but in case you forgot I thought I would subtly remind you yet again. Since we’re conveniently on the topic now, I’d like to draw your attention to the … More Differentiating between scary and gory
Horror movies and religion can arguably be recognized as two peas in a pod when it comes to scary movies. More often than not, Catholicism seems to be affiliated with scary movies, and St. Agatha is no exception to this affiliation. St. Agatha is a 2018 horror/thriller flick, directed by Darren Lynn Bousman and written … More St. Agatha: not your average scary movie
When first heard about the movie The Perfection via my Facebook timeline, I knew it was one I was going to have to see. Why, you may ask? When the release of a horror flick is met with statements that people became physically ill watching it, you can bet it intrigued me. Hey, I never … More If you’re a horror fan, you need to watch The Perfection
I watched The Strangers: Prey at Night recently with my boyfriend, and I can say with complete honesty that, in my opinion, it is one of the worst executed horror flicks I’ve seen as of late. I’m not even trying to be overly critical or harsh. It’s just a really shitty movie. It depicts a … More Film Review: The Strangers: Prey at Night
I’m not going to lie, the Netflix description for this film made it sound pretty darn good. “An ambitious reporter comes face-to-face with the inexplicable when she travels to Romania to investigate a nun’s suspicious and brutal death.” Two minutes into the movie, the credits revealed something even more enticing; the phrase, “inspired by actual … More Film review: The Crucifixion
I’ll be honest in saying that one of the main reasons I decided to curl up and watch Netflix’s Bird Box is because of all of the hype I saw about it via social media. My Twitter timeline was blowing up with memes and film references, and after watching the trailer for the film, I … More Is Bird Box worth the watch?
Last weekend I watched Within with my boyfriend, Blaine. The movie description provided by Netflix seemed intriguing, so we figured we would give it a go. We hadn’t viewed a horror flick in a while, and this one seemingly fit the bill. Starring Michael Vartan as John Alexander, Erin Moriarty as Hannah, Alex’s daughter, Nadine … More Film review: Within
Alas, I have finished the ten-episode first season of The Haunting of Hill House. Seriously, if you haven’t familiarized yourself with this Netflix original series, I highly recommend doing so. I’m pretty bummed it’s only ten episodes, because that’s how damn good this show is. But, at the same time, perhaps it’s best that it’s … More The Haunting of Hill House: final thoughts
As somewhat of a horror movie aficionado, I’m slightly ashamed to admit that prior to a couple of days ago, I had never seen Halloween. I still have to watch the original, as the one I just watched was the 2007 version, but these things take time. Halloween (2007) was written, produced and directed by Rob … More Film review: Halloween (2007)
I finally got around to viewing Hereditary the other evening after hearing quite a bit of hype about it. I wasn’t entirely sure of what to expect, but good Lord, this movie is one for the books. A 2018 horror/supernatural movie, Hereditary was written and directed by Ari Aster in his mind-blowing directorial debut. Seriously, … More Film review: Hereditary
After viewing Leatherface, which I reviewed in yesterday’s post, I thought I would take it upon myself to do some research and determine whether or not the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise was inspired by true events. To my complete horror, I learned that it is, loosely. Ed Gein lived in a farmhouse in Wisconsin, which would later be referred … More Ed Gein: the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre
I’m not one to get easily queasy. I wouldn’t say I’m a fan of gore, because, quite honestly, why would I enjoy seeing someone getting torn to shreds, but gore isn’t typically something to make me feel physically ill if I do happen to see it. However, after watching Leatherface with my boyfriend a couple … More Film review: Leatherface
When I saw that Winchester had arrived to Netflix this past weekend, my sister and I agreed to sit down and watch it. My sister isn’t one to often watch horror movies, so I was really hoping it would be a satisfying experience in terms of genuine terror and sweat-inducing fear. Unfortunately, my hopes didn’t … More Film review: Winchester
When I came across Romina on Netflix a few nights ago, the description offered peaked my interest. “A shocking assault inspires horrific violence when a group of teens encounters a girl from their school while camping in a remote spot” is what it reads, and to be honest, if you’re into horror movies, why wouldn’t … More Romina: Not Worth the Watch
A good friend of mine has a passion for horror films, similar to my own, and he recommended the film Verónica to me.
