Favorites: Ranking ANOES Franchise

Overdue for a long, long time. The Nightmare on Elm Street franchise is my favorite franchise in the genre. There are only 9 films under its belt and a tv series Freddy’s Nightmares that will be excluded out of this list for the fact that it is a series. Finally, I am going to rank … Continue reading Favorites: Ranking ANOES Franchise

SoH Reviews: The Cabin in the Woods

A movie that I have “seen” but have not “seen”. A movie that since it’s release has really garnered a lot of critical and audience praise for being campy, fun and unique. We’re talking about the 2010 but 2011 released film The Cabin in the Woods and this is my official first time watching the … Continue reading SoH Reviews: The Cabin in the Woods

AYAOTD vs Goosebumps: Which One is Better?

I’ve thought about this topic for a while. But I wasn’t sure how to approach this because I’m a fan of both and both have huge pros and cons working against them.

Horror Sequels Recommended

When we discuss horror or the overall genre, this particular subject pops up often: what’s your favorite sequel or least favorite, what would you recommend? We have ideas that sequels don’t hold up well to the original, maybe there shouldn’t be any sequels at all but this is for the ones who dig sequels and … Continue reading Horror Sequels Recommended

Top 10 List of Horror Icons (new & classic)

So this is somewhat inspired by a vhs/dvd of Boogeymen but in my own opinion. If you do not know about Boogeymen, it was a compilation of “icons” of horror but it was most 90% popular and then 10% of unknowns (which is great for exposure) put together with classic scenes and some trivia about … Continue reading Top 10 List of Horror Icons (new & classic)

Top 5 “Classic” Horror Movies You Need to See!

I’ve been watching quite a few horror films pre-70s and I’ve been enjoying them.

So today, I’m going to list … Continue reading Top 5 “Classic” Horror Movies You Need to See!

SoH Reviews: The Terror

This is a long time ago found at a goodwill movie to finally sit and watch. I also watched this after Sleepwalkers which is why I’m knocking out two reviews at once.

SoH Reviews: Stephen King’s Sleepwalkers

SoH Reviews: Host (2020, Shudder)

Shudder has become a big go to for new and exclusive content.

Today we’re going to discuss a mini review … Continue reading SoH Reviews: Host (2020, Shudder)

SoH Reviews: Them! (1954)

Another film watched under the last big vhs tapes found at goodwill. I watched Maximum Overdrive, followed by The Blob and now, finally, we get to an early sci-fi/horror film called Them!

SoH Reviews: The Blob (1958)

"Beware of The Blob…" If a movie starts off with a catchy little tune, you’re in for a ride. I found The Blob (1958), on vhs, a few weeks ago (along with Maximum Overdrive and Them!) and finally sat down to watch this sci-fi classic. It’s pretty short, less than 90 minutes but once it … Continue reading SoH Reviews: The Blob (1958)

Top 5 Treehouse of Horror Episodes

As much as I reluctantly got Disney+, I do like the easy accessibility to watch all current episodes of The Simpsons’ Treehouse of Horror episodes. This post is pretty straight forward, what’s my favorite episodes from the entirety of the episodes shown. But what I really like about these episodes (and overall) is that there’s … Continue reading Top 5 Treehouse of Horror Episodes

Top 10 Location Bound Horror

A horror needs a few credentials or essentials: Some kind of plot or narrative, characters, the big baddie and of course, a location where all of these are to take place. So today’s post is about some of my favorite locations in horror. Now this can be all over the place because of what identifies … Continue reading Top 10 Location Bound Horror

A Color Story: Clown

I don’t see many talk about this film. Is it underrated? Not easily found to consume? Easily forgotten or simply buried among other films that get pushed to the side? I’ve been meaning to do this film for a while (2 years) but it wasn’t an easy film to find screen captures of. That’s a … Continue reading A Color Story: Clown

SoH Reviews: The Void

I don’t know how much I’ll have to say this but I go into watching new movies with low expectations and not knowing much about the film in general. I do remember seeing this particular movie on my tumblr feed recently. Like… as in a couple of days ago and through Shudder, decided to watch … Continue reading SoH Reviews: The Void

Wild Horror + Recs

This is gonna be fun. For the past 3 years, I’ve been working at the city zoo. Now that I’ve left said job, I think I can finally focus on this one.

Coming of Age in Horror: A Mini Discussion

Last month I watched a foreign horror film through Shudder: Blue My Mind. The film, released in 2017, is a coming of age film about a young woman experiencing some significant changes that isn’t just puberty. What I enjoyed about the film is that our young protagonist is fighting so hard to be normal. She … Continue reading Coming of Age in Horror: A Mini Discussion

Demonic, supernatural, paranormal … Continue reading Top 10 Possession (Horror) Films

Top 10 Favorite Watches of 2020 (so far)

I have watched some great horror content this year. Most of the films I’ve seen in 2020 have been either good to really good to downright surprising the heck out of me in a good way. I’ve averaged out that I’ve been watching about 5-6, maybe 7 films/content a month since January 2020 and it … Continue reading Top 10 Favorite Watches of 2020 (so far)

SoH Reviews: Blood Machines + Turbo Killer

This movie has been on my mind since I watched it yesterday. Right up front, I don’t think I’ve seen anything like this film nor have this sensory experience either. Let’s talk about Blood Machines. Blood Machines, a sequel to the music video Turbo Killer, is a cosmic scifi, horror opera that is about machines … Continue reading SoH Reviews: Blood Machines + Turbo Killer

Scream, Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street Review

Scream Queens are a huge part of the horror genre. They are our final girls who at the end defeat the “evil” or the bad guy. They are victorious, they come out on top and they become stronger. They become the face of power in horror. We cheer for them, we root for them, we … Continue reading Scream, Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street Review

Proud Posts of 2020 (so far)

It’s been a busy week for me. Work is starting back up again (I’m going to get a new job, I am going to get a new job) and so my time has basically been work and then come home and fall asleep or be so exhausted I barely have energy to do much. So … Continue reading Proud Posts of 2020 (so far)

The Movie Theater Experience(s): the horror edition

With the current pandemic of 2020 still affecting us, it got me to think about movie theaters.

Top 50 Favorite Horror Movies: 50-25 Part I (no sequels!)

It's hard to think about your favorite movies, let alone horror and THEN rank them in some kind of order. I've avoided this topic because it's too hard, however, I had been watching quite a few yt videos of other horror fans ranking their own and if they can do it, so can I. There … Continue reading Top 50 Favorite Horror Movies: 50-25 Part I (no sequels!)

The Crazies (1973) Review + Relevancy

The Crazies was an unconventional and random choice. The Crazies somehow seems more relevant now than it did in 1973. The Crazies showcased that Romero always had a knack for being ahead on content and storytelling. For today’s post, I watched 1973’s The Crazies. If it didn’t sum up what was to come in 2020, … Continue reading The Crazies (1973) Review + Relevancy

SoH Reviews: Antrum (The Deadliest Film Ever Made)

This movie was interesting… ...in the manner that I felt familiar with it despite experiencing it for the first time.

And All Through the House: Tales from the Crypt (1989)

It's not the Christmas season or Christmas in July but somehow, we're going to discuss a Christmas episode from HBO's Tales from the Crypt today! I know the later seasons of Crypt are just so random as fuck and off the hinges but the earlier seasons, especially when the show gets its footing are great. … Continue reading And All Through the House: Tales from the Crypt (1989)

The Hype of Re-Animator: Is it valid?

A few weeks ago, Comet TV was showing a film with a familiar face: Jeffrey Combs. Granted, I recognized the other two actors alongside him (Ken Foree, Barbara Crampton) and it was the film From Beyond. It then reminded me, fuck, I had never seen Re-Animator. Yes, I am one of those people who take … Continue reading The Hype of Re-Animator: Is it valid?

SoH Horror Guide

What movie should I watch? Can you recommend something for me? What movies have you seen? As a horror blogger, I get this question or a variation of it a lot which is…what horror movie should I watch? And the honest answer is that it varies. Some can handle most if not all types of … Continue reading SoH Horror Guide

Children & Horror: The Loss of Innocence

There is something inherently off putting when children are the main focus in a horror film. We see children as a source of innocence, naivety, we want to protect them and shield them from all the evil in the world as much as we can. But what horror (or the other sub genres like thrillers, … Continue reading Children & Horror: The Loss of Innocence

Hannibal: A tale of Horror and Elegance

There’s not a lot of television shows that stick with me long after they are off the air. However, I started to think about one particular show that despite a short run and a very passionate fanbase, I can only hope that one day this show will come back in some form. A film, miniseries, … Continue reading Hannibal: A tale of Horror and Elegance

SoH Reviews: Carnival of Souls (1962)

I go into watching movies for the first time with an open mind. I’m neither excited or lazying myself into watching. I am not sure how long this film has been sitting in my watchlist (I used Prime to watch this) but I’m thankful that I did. It’s an eerie, slow building, impact horror/indie film … Continue reading SoH Reviews: Carnival of Souls (1962)

Rewatching Goosebumps TV Series

This week, I decided to go back… way back… to exactly 1995. How old was I in 1995? I was 8. The perfect age for this particular show. I give credit to three book series that influenced me to read more: Animorphs, Harry Potter and today’s topic, Goosebumps! How funny all of them are from … Continue reading Rewatching Goosebumps TV Series
