When I finally watched The Blackcoat’s Daughter, I felt like I’d been hearing about this film for some time. Truth in advertising here, I’m friends with a few of the producers on this film so I was very aware of it from an early stage when it was called February. I knew it was a … Continue reading 10/8/17 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #8 – The Blackcoat’s Daughter.
Damn you, James Wan. How do you keep this up? Every single horror film you work on is directed better than your previous effort. It almost hurts me how good you are at your craft. The Conjuring 2 is your latest example. Oh man, I loved the first Conjuring. LOVED. It was so classic, so … Continue reading 10/30/16 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #30 – The Conjuring 2.

I told you I couldn’t decide between two films, so I was ending the year on two no-brainers. Yesterday I gave you the incomparable classic Night of the Living Dead (1968). Today, I give you the … Continue reading 10/31/15 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #31 – The Evil Dead (1981).
