Today’s post is going to be a little… different. It’s going to be very long. And it's going to get surprisingly personal. I know that sounds bizarre when I’m essentially just doing a horror movie recommendation, but bear with me and you’ll understand why. I initially wrote this post weeks ago, right after I saw … Continue reading 10/31/18 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #31 – Halloween (2018) *A Highly Personal Post.
Earlier this month I brought you Michele Soavi’s nutty nutbar religious flick, The Church. Today is all about another of his movies, and the one I think most consider his masterpiece — Cemetery Man. The original Italian title is Dellamorte Dellamore (which contains a much deeper meaning, more on that in a bit), but US … Continue reading 10/30/18 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #30 – Cemetery Man (1994).
Here’s a movie that has kind of been lost to time, and that's a shame.

Each story is named … Continue reading 10/27/18 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #27 – Trilogy of Terror.
Churchgoers may want to skip today's post. We're going to get grimy. We're going to get down in the mud and delightfully wallow in its filth. Grab your mask, grab your strangulation scarf, and grab your hacksaw. It’s time… for Torso. The original title was Carnal Violence, but Torso just happens to be one of … Continue reading 10/26/18 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #26 – Torso.
The water’s too nice in here. I don’t want to leave the comfy confines of my 80’s hot tub of happiness just yet. Yesterday I waded into the water with Night of the Comet, today I’m relaxing against the powerful jets of 1987’s epic The Gate.
