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.

The End... A Final Farewell


I've been hinting at stopping these silly reviews for a couple of years now. As always life changes. With my son rapidly going through his early toddler years most of my free time is spent being a parent (and being exhausted). The time I once had dedicated to watching anything dwindles and the time to write dwindles even more. So I decided that the blog would come to an end at the beginning of 2019. I also decided to go out with a bang by hammering out a review every day since October. That was difficult but enjoyable, as this blog was for me. It never quite turned into what I hoped it would be and that's mostly because of my lack of time to properly dedicate to it. Then again, I always posted these reviews for me and if anyone else cared to read it that was a bonus so maybe the blog served its exact purpose. In the end if this the blog was able to turn a few people on to movies they wouldn't have known about it then again purpose was served. It was a labor of love between me and horror entertainment.

The good thing is currently there are several places fans can get their horror fix for little or no cost. And there is more content being created now than ever before. I honestly dont know how a person can keep up. Any ways, below are some of the streaming sites I frequent.

American Horror Story: Apocalypse, Season 8 (2018)



Starring: Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Jessica Lange, Even Peters, Emma Roberts, Billy Eichner,


Premise:
Nuclear war eliminates most of humanity. A few rich people have spots in survival outposts in order to survive and rebuild the Earth. Though not everything is as it seems in this outpost.

My Take:
This has been the best season of the series in a long while as it combines the characters/stories from Murder House and Coven into a new story about the son of Satan causing the end of the world.

Rating: So Good

Watched: FX

Director: Demian Rugna


Premise:
A neighborhood starts experiencing strange occurrences. When residents start dying off the local police captain call in his old partner who by a chance encounter enlists a team of paranormal researchers to sort out the what might be happening.

My Take:
Any movie that makes me jump multiple times is a good one (it doesn't happen often). This is just a creepy movie dealing with creatures from alternate dimensions crossing over into our plane.

Rating: So Good

Watched: Shudder

Starring: Ricardo Adam Zarate, Mark Burnham, Jon Oswald,
Director: Ryan Powers


Premise:
A disgraced luchadore, an ex-con just out of prison, and an addict who owns a hotel lives cross path one day due to a local gangster.

My Take:
With topics like addiction, human trafficking, organ harvesting, and muscle for hire were are dealing with a lot of horrific topics. The movie often juxtaposes comic situation with extreme violence. The intertwining stories of the characters and the editing make this an extremely fun 90 minutes.

Rating: So Good

Vidar The Vampire (2017)



Starring: Thomas Aske Berg, Bright Skrettingland
Director: Thomas Aske Berg, Fredrik Waldeland


Premise:
A simple farmer turns into a vampire and tries to come to terms with the condition

My Take:
A solid movie which focuses on a man coming to grips with his new found vampirism. The movie is often funny and often sad as we see the main character reluctantly succumb and accept what is has become.

Rating: So Good
