Oh, Annabelle. You seem to have broken into our general conscious so quickly and so fervently. We only first learned about you a few years ago in The Conjuring, and now you’re everywhere. Here’s the thing, I really didn’t like your first spinoff movie, Annabelle. Except for a neat little twist toward the end, I … Continue reading 10/24/19 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #24 – Annabelle: Creation.
I’m sticking with some sweet 70’s action today. And not just any sweet 70’s action, but sweet 70’s Nazi zombie action! Shock Waves is one of those movies that is so wackadoodle, yet still so interesting, and all the while perfectly sums up an entire time period of horror moviemaking, that everyone who holds horror … Continue reading 10/23/19 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #23 – Shock Waves (1977).
I had the awesome opportunity to blather on about horror movies with my buddy Mark Thompson today on his KGO 810 AM talk radio show. He wanted to do a scary movie segment for Halloween, and I was more than happy to oblige. He had me on for the whole second hour, which flew by … Continue reading Talking Horror on the Radio – My segment on KGO 810 AM.
Post Jaws, there was a hefty amount of copycat films containing killer animals. Funny thing is that even though the quality of these copycats vary, I still enjoy almost every one of them. There’s something about killer animal movies I simply have a ball with. Right in the midst of this killer animal glut is … Continue reading 10/22/19 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #22 – Prophecy (1979).
Uh, WHOOPS. I'm an idiot... Look after 10 damn years, I’m actually surprised this is the first time this has happened. I already posted about A Quiet Place last year! And strangely, on almost the exact same day in October! https://scaryhorrorwriter.wordpress.com/2018/10/22/10-22-18-october-horror-movie-pick-22-a-quiet-place/ So weird. I didn't even realize. My brain is obviously fried. Sorry. Anyway to … Continue reading 10/21/19 (CORRECTION: TAKE TWO!) – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #21 – Bird Box.
After yesterday’s slightly bizarro pick of Vampyros Lesbos, I promised I’d go a little more mainstream today. Considering the huge box office and success of today’s film, I’d say this is about as mainstream as anything scary that’s come out in the last few years. Most everyone knows about A Quiet Place, and for good … Continue reading 10/21/19 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #21 – A Quiet Place.
I’m feeling weird. Humor me. My longtime goal with this list was to always mix it up with the picks, so I figured, what the Hell. Let’s go REALLY bizarro. I promise I’ll go more mainstream tomorrow, but today I’m going full deep cut for some of the real horror smut-lovers out there. Today let’s … Continue reading 10/20/19 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #20 – Vampyros Lesbos (1971).
