Halloween Kills Too Much?

Who’s ready for Halloween Kills? Get those hands up people! We’ve all waited a very long time for this movie. I’ve been reading the reviews for Halloween Kills, and there seems to be some confusion.  Normally I don’t pay too much attention to the critics, but this calls for an intervention:

Belgian Horror Movies

Let me start by saying that I have never seen a Belgian horror movie (sorry Belgium!). I have, however, seen a lot of lists about them. A LOT of lists! Although Belgium is not really known for its horror movies, they have apparently produced some pretty good ones. For the most part, they seem to be dark, bloody, have a bit of humor, and plenty of sex- what’s not to like?

Willy’s Wonderland

I loved Willy’s Wonderland!!!  Let’s be honest – who hasn’t looked at those giant animatronic creatures and thought they looked possessed. At one point or another, everyone has said that one day those creepy animals were going to come to life and murder people. Apparently, we weren’t the only ones!.

The Amityville Horror – The Movie

“For God’s Sake Get Out”. The Amityville Horror was one of the movies that scared me to death when I was young. I was a good Catholic school girl and not into horror movies yet. I barely slept that night. Now I’m all grown up and my church is a good horror movie…

Movies for a Heatwave

When I wrote this it was hot! Here in New York, it was 97 degrees, but it felt like 104 with the humidity. The West coast was even hotter! So if you hide from the heat like me, or are recovering from a day of summer fun, here are some great summer movies to chill out to…

The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It

Back in October, I wrote this article about the Arne Johnson murder case that was recently brought to the big screen in The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It. After watching the movie, I want to talk about how the movie compares to the real-life case…

House on Haunted Hill

I just watched House on Haunted Hill (the original 1958 version). I had such a good time! It was directed by William Castle and stars Vincent Price, so you know it’s going to be good! The movie opens with a black screen, spooky noises, and a couple of floating heads, giving you a little taste of what’s to come. Based on the book by Shirley Jackson, It is a low-budget, no special effects, piece of classic horror brilliance…

Rosemary’s Baby

Rosemary’s Baby is going to mess with your head, freak you out, scare you, and keep you up at night. An absolutely amazing piece of psychological horror! The book or the movie, it doesn’t matter. They’re both amazing…

The Changeling

There’s nothing like turning off the lights, getting under a blanket, and watching a good creepy movie. The Changeling (1980) is definitely one of those movies. This one of my favorite haunted house movies. It’s got everything a proper ghost story should have: a grieving man, unexplained noises, a seance, and a hidden room…
