Apostle

This is not an easy film to watch, but it’s well worth watching. The reason I say it’s hard to watch is because it’s so relentlessly dour and dark, and just never lets up — to a point where my wife stopped watching it about halfway (and she usually watches all these horror movies with […]

It Comes at Night

This was incredibly creepy, and I think it’s an interesting choice to never really explain the setting (i.e. the reason people are getting sick, and that they are in full survival mode). The cast is really good, and keeping everything so self-contained (it pretty much all takes place in and around a house in the […]

The First Purge

As I wrote recently for The Purge: Election Year, I do like this series, and was quite looking forward to watching this film. I liked it fine, but I’ll say that for me it’s the weakest of all the films (I think my favorite is Election Year). The big surprise here was to see Marisa […]

Into the Dark: The Body

This is a new horror anthology TV series with a new episode (the length of a movie) every month that ties into that month’s holiday — the premiere episode is Halloween-themed, and they’ve announced that the November episode will relate to Thanksgiving. This sounded like something that would be right up my alley, but I […]

Hold the Dark

This probably falls more in the “thriller” category than “horror,” but it certainly has its share of creepy moments, and I really enjoyed it. It’s at times a very slow/meditative film, so I’d say you probably need to be in a mood for something like that in order to really enjoy it, but if you […]

Malevolent

Continuing with the October horrorfest, I next watched Malevolent, a recently added Netflix Original. This was pretty enjoyable, starting with a setting I liked — Glasgow in the 80s. It follows a group of fake ghost hunters who encounter — surprise, surprise — real ghosts. It gets pretty intense towards the end, much more than […]

Fall 2018 Anime Season

Coming off a relatively quiet summer season, I’m facing a fall season that has nothing I’m really interested in watching. The only thing on the list that I’m mildly interested is Ingress, and the continuation of Banana Fish, but even that, I only watched 5-6 episodes of the first season, and although I liked it […]

Down a Dark Hall

I wasn’t really expecting much from this, and pretty much went into it blind, except knowing that it takes place in a big ol’ mansion (yeah, I like horror movies that take place in big ol’ mansions) and that it stars Uma Thurman. In the end, I can’t say that I was that into it, […]
