• No One Gets Out Alive

    No One Gets Out Alive

    ★★

    Hmm this is certainly a weird start to my horror movie month, but hey anything is better than the last film I watched Separation! I’m not entirely sure how I feel about No One Gets Out Alive, I went in completely blind and as the film began it seemed like a standard haunted house flick. I had to laugh when I discovered the house was in Cleveland, as a longtime Ohioan I approved of the setting. At first I was…

  • Rent-A-Pal

    Rent-A-Pal

    ★★★

    Oh boy was this film an absolute bummer, it’s been a while since I’ve seen something that bleak and disturbing. Poor David who is caring for his elderly mother is trying desperately to make a connection with anyone, when he rents a VHS tape aptly titled Rent-A-Pal he finally finds a companion in the ultra creepy Andy. I can’t even count the amount of times this movie made me cringe in horror at how unnerving Andy’s dialogue is, it’s hard…

  • Slither

    Slither

    ★★★★½

    Wow this is exactly what I needed today, what an absolute blast this film was! I remember catching a bit of Slither when I was younger, I walked in on the big pimple lady and recall being utterly repulsed and silently judging my father for his weird taste in movies.. well look at me now dad! In the past couple of years I’ve learned to fully embrace body horror in all it’s revolting glory, and boy did this film feel…

  • You're Next

    You're Next

    ★★★★

    I can’t believe this film is 10 years old, I was honestly shocked when I looked at the release date! It’s been a couple years since I’ve revisited You’re Next, and I’m happy to report I feel the exact same way as I did the first time I watched it. This film is such a blast, and has one of the best final girls I’ve seen in a horror movie to date (next to of course my girls Sidney Prescott and…

  • Carnival of Souls

    Carnival of Souls

    ★★★★½

    Wow… I don’t know what I just watched but it was foolish of me to put this on at 11pm, especially when I’m prone to waking nightmares. It will be just my luck that this film sticks with me and I’ll wake up to some ghoulish smiling man standing in the corner of my bedroom, serves me right I guess! Carnival of Souls is about Mary Henry, a lone survivor of a fatal car crash who uproots her life and begins…

  • Cherry Tree

    Cherry Tree

    ★★

    I think I’ve mentioned before on here that I’m a huge fan of films featuring witches—since I was young and fell in love with the Sanderson sisters from Hocus Pocus I’ve always been drawn to witchcraft. I feel like they’re extremely unrepresented in the horror genre which is a such a shame, think we need to see more witchy films please! Cherry Tree has been on my Amazon Prime watchlist for over a year now, but it kept on get…

  • Fade to Black

    Fade to Black

    ★★★½

    So this is a case where my rating changed about three times since the credits began to roll, I was all over the place with how I felt because at first honestly I was feeling a little letdown. I did love a lot about this movie don’t get me wrong, especially the performance from Dennis Christopher as the extreme film buff who goes off the deep end and begins reenacting his favorite death scenes on anyone who bullied him. This…

  • Saint Maud

    Saint Maud

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I have to be honest that I was a bit apprehensive of Saint Maud at first, I’ve read reviews that it could be fairly slow and I’ve been craving faster paced movies lately. Thankfully this had such strong performances that I was fully engrossed the entire runtime—I felt as though I was experiencing Maud’s entire disturbing and bleak journey with her. This movie made me feel so anxious and absolutely hopeless as it crawled to it’s shocking conclusion. Saint Maud

  • The Pit

    The Pit

    ★★

    I know this was a strange choice for my first pick of the month but I’ve been watching and enjoying In Search of Darkness: Part II and was craving some cheesy 80’s goodness. I never heard of The Pit and what little was featured in the documentary looked like fun so I thought why not?! I believed I was in for some ridiculous cheese but instead I felt extremely uncomfortable and just plain confused. For the complete first half you’re…

  • The Babysitter: Killer Queen

    The Babysitter: Killer Queen

    ★★½

    So the beginning half of this sequel I was pretty upset with because I thought I chose another stinker for the month.. two for two I kept on thinking! But somewhere down the line I started to enjoy this absurd film for what it is, just a stupid horror comedy that shouldn’t be taken seriously. It’s really terrible and at times it comes off as too tryhard.. but the kills are so ridiculous that it started to grow on me…

  • The Vigil

    The Vigil

    ★★

    Well I thought I was going to be writing quite a different type of review for this movie based on the excitement I felt after watching the trailer. This had all the makings to be a great horror film, the story even reminded me of the vastly superior The Autopsy of Jane Doe which I highly recommend you watch if you want to actually be scared. This had such a unique demon that I’ve never seen before and an extremely…

  • The Vampire Bat

    The Vampire Bat

    ★★

    I’m running a little behind writing these reviews, because as a typical procrastinator I put off watching a lot of these movies until the last minute. The reviews will be shorter than usual but I just wanted to make sure to get a couple of my thoughts out about each film. The Vampire Bat was a charming movie that I enjoyed despite it lacking with scares due to so much dialogue. The characters were all very endearing which helped prevent…
