Prince of Darkness

I had completely forgotten what this movie was about — in fact, when I started watching it, I was expecting On the Mouth of Madness. It comes up with some interesting ideas — suggesting that “the devil” is of alien origin — but it doesn’t really go far enough. It wasn’t horrible, but definitely not […]

Stranger Things 2

What with Super Mario Odyssey taking over my life since Friday, I’ve only managed to watch the first episode of the second season of Stranger Things (after re-watching season 1 earlier this week). That episode was quite good though — you gotta love all of the arcade love the episode gets — and I can’t […]

Mr. Robot (Season 3)

After watching the first episode of the new 3rd season, I couldn’t help but feel lost. This series is filled with so many twist and turns, and I honestly couldn’t really remember where things were at and what the status quo was. By the end of the episode, I felt just as lost, although I […]

Evil Dead II

Since it’s Halloween season, I’ve been focusing the start of my 1987 movie marathon on horror films from that year, and there’s probably none more classic than this. I’d say it’s still the best Sam Raimi film, and oh boy is this one hell of an insane film (in a good way) — even more […]

Stranger Things (Season 1)

I’m incredibly excited for the second season of Stranger Things to come out on Friday, and so in anticipation I decided to re-watch the first season — something I never do for dramatic series, with Twin Peaks as the exception. I’m watching 2-3 episodes a night (will finish tonight), and I’ve found myself enjoying it […]

Mindhunter

I loved this series so much. I binged most of it in one day, which I haven’t done in a while (especially for a dramatic series). The premise of interviewing serial killers made for some fascinating scenes — and some great performances — and I quite liked that they mixed these with a few “new” […]

Hellraiser

There was definitely a phase in my life where I loved what Clive Barker was doing (like this and Nightbreed). Sure, the effects are of the era, but this film is still incredibly creepy, and I can still appreciate how different this felt from most of the horror films of the era — body and […]

The Lost Boys

This is one of those movies that I remembered very fondly from the era, but hadn’t watched since then, and so was a bit worried at how it might have aged. I can happily say that I very much enjoyed revisiting this — oh yeah, it’s 80s as hell, but in a lovable way, and […]
