The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Monsters & Mysteries in America, Season 1 (2013)


Premise:
A show that documents eye witness accounts (and recreates those accounts) about mysterious creatures and situations in the United States.

My Take:
While it's fairly standard of format for this type of show what makes it stand out is the depth of the cryptids talked about by the people interviewed. Sure there are a the big ones like Bigfoot, UFO's, and Jersey Devil but also very obscured ones like haunted sections of road - The Devil's Highway, Sheepsquatch, black eyed kids, and nightstalkers. It's enough to keep me curious.

Favorite Episode: 
"Bayou" - This episode touches on vampires in New Orleans, the shape shifting Rougarou, and bigfoot like Honey Island Swamp Monster.

Rating: In the middle
