I try to at least half-plan my Horror Picks every year, but I leave a lot of room for a few movies to enter my brain organically. This is a perfect example. Yesterday I did It Comes At Night, a claustrophobic film about a family that stays in their cabin for fear of a plague … Continue reading 10/21/17 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #21 – 10 Cloverfield Lane.
Here’s another recent flick that took the horror world by storm this past year. Now, I would personally argue that this movie is less horror, and more sci-fi thriller. But as I’ve said many times before in this blog, horror comes in all shapes and sizes. And in this case, colors. Get Out is a … Continue reading 10/15/17 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #15 – Get Out.
Yeah, yeah, I know what you’re thinking. Zombies. We get it. Enough. To that I say, if you can continue to present something fresh to me within the genre, I’ll watch zombie films until the day I become dust. The Girl With All the Gifts did just that. It presented something fantastic and original. I … Continue reading 10/7/17 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #7 – The Girl With All The Gifts.
***This post has a BONUS at the end for those of you who knew my wife Amy (www.amydixonfitness.com) in high school. I just can’t help myself. After yesterday’s insane 80’s flick I just had to wallow in my nutty 80’s horror world yet again. Ladies and gentlemen I present to you a Corman classic, Chopping … Continue reading 10/14/16 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #14 – Chopping Mall.
Time to go into the way back machine a little bit. Time for one of my favorite Vincent Price flicks. Well, let’s be honest, pretty much anything with Vincent Price is one of my favorite Vincent Price flicks. Man, I worship that dude. They just don’t make people like him anymore. Sigh… Anyway, back to … Continue reading 10/5/16 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #5 – The Fly (1958).
I’m here to give this long underrated sci-fi horror sequel some love. Before Seven, The Game, Fight Club, or his latest hit Gone Girl, David Fincher’s debut feature was this dark and dirty beast of a flick. Like much of his work, this movie is desolate, dreary, and did I say dark? Well it is. … Continue reading 10/27/14 – 2014 OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #27 – Alien3.
About this time last year I was writing about the original Phantasm, a bizarre mind trip of a movie that I freakin’ love. So I figured this year I’d throw in the sequel. Phantasm II picks up right where the first movie ended with Mike (now recast, but more on that in a bit) and … Continue reading 10/22/14 – 2014 OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #22 – Phantasm II.
