First of all, apologies for the later-than-normal posting today. Went to a Halloween shin-dig last night and am still recovering. Ugh… Love this season. Anyway, we’re coming in on the home stretch before the magical day, so time to pull out a few classics. I’d say the original Amityville Horror is pretty damn classic. You’ll … Continue reading 10/27/19 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #27 – The Amityville Horror (1979).
Never trust a man with a unibrow. That’s pretty much the moral of this movie, and I completely agree (I’m talking to you, Anthony Davis!) Well, it’s not so much the moral, but it does play a part. The Company of Wolves is such a strange movie. But that’s exactly why I like it. Directed … Continue reading 10/26/19 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #26 – The Company of Wolves.
I know horror can be enjoyed anywhere, but even if you aren’t normally an avid moviegoer, I still think everyone should see as many films as possible in an actual theater. Lucky you, there’s a blast of a horror/comedy playing in them right now. Zombieland: Double Tap is definitely a continuation of the first amazing … Continue reading 10/25/19 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #25 – Zombieland: Double Tap.
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).
