The intentions of this blog in 2015 was showcasing cinematography and the artistry behind and within horror films.

Creature Features: Underrated & Favorites

Ahh Halloween is around the corner, literally on Sunday and I’ve seen plenty of costumes in stores and on my feed and I’m seeing the typical costumes: Disney, Ghostface, witches, vampires, odd references but not a lot of actual “creatures”.

Unforgettable Scenes in Horror

It’s been a minute. I have thoroughly enjoyed my break and I’m gonna ease back into writing for the blog.

Retro Rundown: Disney’s Original Series “So Weird”

Today is a definite stroll down memory lane.

It’s been so long since I’ve sat down and watched a new movie.

Ahh Goosebumps, you were a part of my childhood. I watched you on Saturday mornings on Fox Kids and read and collected a few of your books!

Retro Rundown: Tales from the Darkside “Beetles” Review

"Archaeologist Arthur Hartley is accused of stealing expensive artifacts from a museum, is warned of a curse that befalls those who touch the artifacts, but won't be stopped in his quest for wealth."

Piranha (1978) Review

From the jump, I’m gonna say I had unexpected fun with this movie.I like when movies pleasantly surprise me, especially when my expectations are very, very low. That was the attitude I had going into this. I am a very indecisive person when it comes to watching movies and I was like “okay let’s watch … Continue reading Piranha (1978) Review

Favorites in Horror Decades: The 60s

A new “series” on the blog but I wanted to talk about my adventures into different decades of horror. We can talk about the 80s and 90s horror all we want, they are great, and the 80s is oversaturated but home of the big franchises but no one is really giving earlier decades its due. … Continue reading Favorites in Horror Decades: The 60s

10 Horror Films that gives ME the Chills

I, by no means, would classify myself as an expert in horror. Yes, I know things about film on a historic level and I watch tons and tons of horror content but in all the years I’ve consumed said content, there are only a handful that really got to me on some level. I’m an … Continue reading 10 Horror Films that gives ME the Chills

SoH Reviews: The Amusement Park (1973, 2019)

It’s a pieced together lost film of iconic director George A. Romero.It’s filled with surreal images and very pointed commentary.Thanks to Shudder and the George A Romero Foundation, we can finally watch a film that isn’t about gore and blood and getting a “scaredy cat” reaction out of you, this is more of a slow … Continue reading SoH Reviews: The Amusement Park (1973, 2019)

The Mummy (1932) Review

Today’s review is something that you either have seen or you know of the many remakes.. I’m not sure if this is available on streaming services right now but thankfully, I had this on vhs in my collection, still wrapped in plastic.I’ve been on a recurring journey of exploring horror films that are either black … Continue reading The Mummy (1932) Review

Night/Curse of the Demon (1957) Review

This movie, I don’t wanna confuse you so I’ll keep it straight forward. There are two versions of this. One, is the full 95 minutes, associated with the UK release under a slightly different title. The other, for American audiences, is short 13 minutes. Shudder luckily has the full version but titled it under the … Continue reading Night/Curse of the Demon (1957) Review

April Fools Day (1986) Review

Scanning through Prime, I found this available and made a mental note to add this movie to the watchlist, along with some others that are currently available. After wrestling with myself, I settled down and picked this movie from 1986. Now, I was aware of this movie, the title kinda gives it away but in … Continue reading April Fools Day (1986) Review

A Future Watchlist of 1987; the year I was born

1987. The year of countless, very cool, and underrated horror movies and also the year I was born in. I’ve thought about doing this for a while but not entirely on a “here are movies from the year I was born, go watch them” angle, which is kind of present but not. I always find … Continue reading A Future Watchlist of 1987; the year I was born

This was an impromptu watch.I have NO regrets watching this.I finally, finally got to watch this and thank you to Shudder for having this film and a few others of the director’s films that I know of by title.

SoH Reviews: 13 Ghosts (1960)

It’s been a while since I’ve done a review for this film, maybe the last one I did was for Cat People?

Top 10 Favorite Slashers

I haven’t done a top 10 “insert subgenre” list in quite some time and I actually thought I had talked about this but checking through my docs and tags on the blog, nothing about a list of slashers. Here we go, slashers, a subgenre that I am not the biggest fan of but I appreciate … Continue reading Top 10 Favorite Slashers

Underrated Horror Monsters

Monsters or creatures are a big part of horror. The other day was Alien Day and I do love seeing some xenomorphs on my instagram feed but it got me to think about other horror “monsters” or “creatures” or even beings. So I made a list, then I looked at my list and said hm, … Continue reading Underrated Horror Monsters

Cat People (1942) Review

A movie that I longed to see for quite some time. I have been enjoying a lot of films in black and white or prior to the 1980s and thankfully Shudder has this available, along with other RKO Pictures films. For those who are very hesitant about watching movies with “no color” or older movies, … Continue reading Cat People (1942) Review

Hey Arnold! A Hidden Gem in Kids’ Horror

I recently got Paramount+ and this is not a sponsor/ad but I mostly got it because of Nickelodeon. Specifically, older nicktoons/shows that I grew up watching were easily available now and I was very excited. Now, as 80s baby and 90s kid, Nickelodeon was one of the few networks I watched religiously as a kid. … Continue reading Hey Arnold! A Hidden Gem in Kids’ Horror

Top 50 Female Characters in Horror: Part I (imo)

Women or female characters in horror are what attracts me to a film. Sure, we love the special effects or our antagonist but you need a balancing aspect, we need to put ourselves in the shoes of the protagonist. Interesting that most of them are women (or female) and rarely are male. There is a … Continue reading Top 50 Female Characters in Horror: Part I (imo)

SoH Reviews: The Quiet Room (2018)

This short film is still fresh in my brain so let me not beat around the bush.

SoH Black Horror

It is February which means two things: Valentine’s Day which I touched on last week and suggested some great Valentine’s Day themed horror and now it’s time to focus on Black History Month.

SoH Reviews: My Bloody Valentine (1981)

A little bit of a warning… I think I saw this film many years ago. I owned this movie on vhs and gave it away (dumb idea looking back) and yet watching this (Monday, Feb 15th) felt brand new. It was one of those feelings of “I’ve either seen this movie discussed on youtube or … Continue reading SoH Reviews: My Bloody Valentine (1981)

Medical Horror Recs

I wasn’t going to be posting anything today but I figured I could try for Saturday. I covered a lot of topics on this blog like sequels, Gravity Falls, favorite franchise, top moments, reviews.

SoH Reviews: The Red Queen Kills Seven Times (1972)

I’ve got a latest obsession; films prior to the 1980s. That decade is quite oversaturated, big franchises come from that decade and I think we kind of ignore anything prior to that decade or we don’t give it enough love. We enjoy Black Christmas, Alien and Halloween and then… that’s it. That’s kind of sad, … Continue reading SoH Reviews: The Red Queen Kills Seven Times (1972)

A movie I never thought I’d get the chance to see was finally watched yesterday (Jan 31st, this is written on Feb 1st) and I was thoroughly enjoying the film.

Top 10 Moments from Are You Afraid of the Dark?

I’ve been enjoying these walks down memory lane of looking at past films or television series (in this case) to analyze why I like certain things or remember certain things. So I’m continuing the little trend of figuring out why I am remembering some things more clearly than others. And it comes down to me … Continue reading Top 10 Moments from Are You Afraid of the Dark?

I’ve decided to do these occasionally throughout the year. I like telling you guys a little more about me and how I’d approach things. So in the past, I’ve done an “about me” a couple of times but this one will be a little different. I scoured the internet for some fun horror themed questions … Continue reading Would You Rather? The Horror Edition

SoH Reviews: A Bay of Blood (1971)

Sundays tend to be movie watching days, I’ve noticed. Not sure why I pick Sundays to watch but maybe because it’s a “relaxing, chill” kind of day. I wasn’t planning on watching this specific movie, I was looking towards something else. But thankfully, having Shudder provides you with different options.However this movie and watching is … Continue reading SoH Reviews: A Bay of Blood (1971)
