PG-13 horror movies, always conjure up images of milquetoast monsters, bloodless kill- scenes, and plots which cater to an, at best, immature audience. I know this seems like a seriously gross generalization, and perhaps it is a tad judgmental, but I have been to too many of them to think otherwise. Or have I! This is not the case with Scary S...

John Landis (Coming to America, Michael Jackson's Thriller) has created many, what most people would term, "classic" films. Many of them, like Trading Places, or The Blues Brothers, to name a few, were comedies but one, in particular, has stuck with Horror film lovers and for good reason. An American Werewolf in London is high on the...

Ari Aster is an Auteur on a mission: to make us question, and sometimes fear our relationships, family, and friends. And especially in Midsommar's case, strange cults.His previous film, Hereditary, was a masterclass in suspenseful storytelling, unraveling the plot, as the sanity of each character unravels along with it. In Midsommar, we are tr...

(Leonard Buccellato)  20/08/2019 10:18 EST
‚ÄčOn October 31st, 2010, The Walking Dead premiered on AMC and the world of horror on TV was permanently changed. Say what you want about the trajectory of this show, there is no denying the impact it has had on mainstream television.I became a fan of zombie-horror movies when I was a kid, and my mom, who is a horror fan herself, recited to me, the ...

There are two types of people, those that love the Vince Gilligan/Peter Gould, Breaking Bad Spinoff Series, Better Call Saul, and those that are wrong! Especially if you are a fan of Breaking Bad, you owe it to yourself to watch this well thought out and incredibly well-acted series.Gilligan/Gould have created an amazingly watchable world, populate...

Face it… Fan-girls and boys, love Hellboy. And really, what's not to love? A red-skinned, snarky, Nazi-hating demon, which fights for and with, the good guys. Not to mention, a quasi, semi-secretive government agency that directs his actions to destroy paranormal and Lovecraftian threats to planet earth?! Think about it.  IT has al... Read More

Stepping a bit out of my horror comfort zone, I set upon the task to watch Lionsgate's 4K re-release of the 2005 Nicolas Cage thriller Lord of War.I am far from a Nicolas Cage (National Treasure) fan; however, in this case, I found myself really engaged in watching this movie. Let me say that Yuri Orlov is one of the most despicable characters to g... Read More

My mother always said, if you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything. My grandma, however, said if you are reviewing a film, then put them on blast for being derivative, unimaginative and trite. Luckily, I'm about to find a happy mixture of both of their points of view, as I review Mortal Engines.Post-Apocalyptic fiction/entertain... Read More
