Audition – Movie Review

This is by far the most difficult film I’ll likely have to cover during this marathon. Not in regards to overall quality. That’s a different story. Mainly because Audition is one of those experiences that’s hard to recommend to certain branches of people and to explain why is extremely complicated as it would require me […]

The Empty Man – Movie Review

A common theme throughout this entire marathon has been centered on cult films. Ones that have been recognized as such after the fact. That’s the funny thing about time. No one ever knows when anything could reach that status. Maybe it’s destiny that people will come around to it and go, “Hey, that was pretty […]

Suspiria – Movie Review

Out of all the films I’ve reviewed in this marathon if I had to rank them by the strength of their presentation and how it’s interwoven with the narrative, then Dario Argento Suspiria would be an easy number one. In fact, it was so close to getting my highest grade. My only struggle with doing […]

The Ring (Ringu) – Movie Review

Suffice to say that this is the point in the marathon where we get to certain films that leave me unsettled. Not just in the sense of being left fearful of creepy imagery or graphic content. I mean the type of fear that leaves you feeling off and utterly terrified of what might be around […]

Train to Busan – Movie Review

If there is one genre of horror that appears to be struggling to stay relevant in the eyes of movie-going audiences currently, then Zombie flicks would be at the top of that dissuasion. This isn’t to say that the genre is incapable of producing quality material. Still, it is tough to showcase something that can […]

Hellraiser – Movie Review

What’s interesting about Hellraiser to me is that while it’s known these days for spawning a rather large franchise and featuring an ionic horror star in Pinhead, what the character means today isn’t in the same vein of the film that started it all. Think of another horror franchise like Friday the 13rth for instance. […]

An American Werewolf in London – Movie Review

     An American Werewolf in London can best perfectly describe as a best of both words type movie. The ideal blend of fun dark comic wit and gruesome violence. It’s been nearly 40 years since the film’s original release, yet it stands on the top of the golden tower as one of the definitive werewolf features.      Something […]

May – Movie Review

So for those unaware, I’ve decided to indulge my cravings for horror films that are have been building up for a while by dedicating the next 15 reviews or so to that genre. I have plenty of movie lineup, the first of which is director Lucky McKee’s mixup of oddball comedy and psychological horror May.   […]

Mortal Kombat (2021) – Movie Review

Grade: B- The best way to describe the newest live-action take on the beloved fighting game franchise is that it’s a pretty neat car commercial. At least good enough to convince you that the car itself might be worth your wallet. And while you’re while waiting for this nice shiny vehicle to come out, you […]

Pain and Gain – Movie Review

Grade: C-   I can recall my first review of Pain and Gain back in the day was one of the few reviews that I’ve written that had people respectfully expressing their disagreements with my intense dislike of the film at the time. And in some ways, I admit that I was a little bit too harsh on […]
