I watched Passengers today. Going in, I really didn’t know what to expect and chose it based solely on the casting. Taking the film on with a fresh set of eyes and a clear mind really swayed my opinion in a positive direction. Put bluntly, I re

Or don’t watch it, cuz it is pretty awful. Yet, also strangely wonderful. Simon Says is a little gem from 2006 available on netflix instant watch. It’s a by the books slasher involving a killer with split personalities set in some remote

This movie was not made for me. I am very clear on that fact. It was made for the people clapping and hollering in my theater. Good for them. There is nothing I can tell you in this blog that you can’t figure out by watching the trailer. Angel,

… or overlooked gem? Well, it wasn’t the worst movie I’ve ever watched. And it certainly isn’t a masterpiece. But,2003’s Darkness Falls is worth the time spent. You may remember the release of this film; I sure do. As I

I’ll just come right out and say that Uwe Boll is not that bad of a director. Okay? Some compare him to Ed Wood Jr., which is not really a fair comparison, but nowadays, Wood is looked at somewhat fondly and his films are considered cult camp c

Sam Raimi has had a career that I have enjoyed from Evil Dead on and I would never have expected him to return to his horror roots after his success with the Spiderman series. The closest I would have thought would be something along the lines of The
