Here’s another gem that came out of nowhere for me. It's such an amazing feeling when I hear absolutely nothing about a movie, yet notice one of my favorite actors in it, check it out blindly, and I’m completely wowed by it. That’s exactly what happened here. I Am Not a Serial Killer is a little … Continue reading 10/26/16 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #26 – I Am Not a Serial Killer.
In years past, I’ve always picked one of my all time scary favorites for the Halloween selection. In 2010, I picked Martyrs (the most disturbing movie ever made.)

You thought the two worlds blended together like oil … Continue reading 10/26/11 – 2011 OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #26 – The Silence of the Lambs.
Another no brainer. Honestly, I can’t leave Scream out. I just can’t. It’s tempting to not include the powerhouses on the list because everyone’s already seen and heard of them, but Scream deserves a place on every horror list… ever. It is one of the best horror scripts ever written, period. It is clever, sharp, … Continue reading FLASHBACK 2010 PICK – 10/23/10 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #23 – Scream.
