My Favorite Horror Movie – ‘Halloween’ (1978)

What’s my all time favorite horror movie? Without a doubt, the answer is John Carpenter’s Halloween.

Review – LEATHERFACE (2017)

Of all the horror franchises, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre has been one of the most execrable. Starting at a very high point in 1974, the series has done absolutely nothing but go straight down the shitter like a mushy turd (aside from a stubborn floater here and there).

Horror films centered on demons are a dime a dozen. The genre, much like zombies, has been done to death and there is very rarely an interesting take anymore. Recently I got the chance to check out the demonic horror film Watch Over Us. Was it more of the same or did it provide a fresh and interesting take on the subject? …
