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)

I don’t have a big collection, I did count: a total of 144 which is around the guesstimate of 150 before actually counting.

For those who do not know, I collect horror movies on vhs (occasionally on dvd … Continue reading Top 20 Films I Want in my VHS Collection

SoH Reviews: The Quiet Room (2018)

This short film is still fresh in my brain so let me not beat around the bush. Last week I did a post about black horror and there were some films that I had left out merely because I hadn’t seen it or I just forgot like Queen of the Damned which has the late … Continue reading SoH Reviews: The Quiet Room (2018)

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. I believe I might have mentioned or touched on BHM in the past because I do remember reviewing Horror Noire and that … Continue reading SoH Black Horror

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. There are many more but there are little pockets or subgenres I haven’t touched yet and it’s time to. The world … Continue reading Medical Horror Recs

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)

10 Films for Valentine’s Horror Watches

It’s officially February which means two things: valentine’s day or galentine’s day and Black History Month. For this, we are going to be looking at the former. Within horror, we have tons of subgenres from supernatural to slasher, paranormal, comedies and there are some that have themes of love. Lost love, love gone bad, obsessed … Continue reading 10 Films for Valentine’s Horror Watches

SoH Reviews: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920)

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. I know for some it’s hard to watch movies that are silent or have subtitles or dubs but I think the more you do it, … Continue reading SoH Reviews: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920)

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?

Would You Rather? The Horror Edition

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?

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)

SoH Watchlist 2020

This year has been a wild one, a lot of unexpected films to watch or television series to dive into for the first time or just to reflect. Up until September and October, I forgot what I watched until I looked at my notes. I have written down every film (and year) and looking back, … Continue reading SoH Watchlist 2020

SoH Reviews: One Dark Night (1983)

On a whim, I decided to watch this film on Shudder. Well, really because it was less than 90 minutes and that’s all the attention span I had Tuesday. Now this movie, I don’t see many talk about or review. It is an under the radar type of 80s horror movie with an “interesting” plot … Continue reading SoH Reviews: One Dark Night (1983)

Christmas Horror Recs

The holiday season is upon us! And I know a lot of us are watching more Christmas/holiday things in the genre whether it's tv or movies but I wanted to come on here and throw out some suggestions that you may be aware of, or maybe these are brand new.

5 Guilty Pleasure Horror Movies

So we all have our comfort foods, comfort tv shows, comfort movies, etc, right? I got this idea yesterday (12/9) and I wondered what my comfort or guilty pleasure films that I go to in the genre. So I thought about what movies I tend to go to more than once to just put on … Continue reading 5 Guilty Pleasure Horror Movies

SoH Reviews: Tourist Trap (1979)

This movie. I knew what to expect but I still didn’t know how wild this movie would become.

SoH Reviews: Black Sabbath (1963)

We’re continuing the Bava train with another review! Prior to watching 1960’s Black Sunday (or The Mask of Satan), I was super excited to see Bava’s collection on Shudder and I was a little overwhelmed about what to watch. So, we have talked about Shock, Blood and Black Lace, Black Sunday and now we are … Continue reading SoH Reviews: Black Sabbath (1963)

SoH Reviews: Black Sunday (1960)

I have waited so long to watch this movie… whenever I could find it. Magically, Shudder has acquired some Mario Bava films, including two that I will be reviewing this week. I saw one on Sunday (11/29) and one the previous week which will be talked about on Saturday’s post but today, we will discuss … Continue reading SoH Reviews: Black Sunday (1960)

I will link them … Continue reading Least Favorite(s) Episodes of Goosebumps & AYAOTD

Foreign Horror + Recs

Foreign horror is essential for ALL film lovers, not just horror. It’s a great way to see what is going on in other markets of the world, what is current and relevant in their culture. I can’t speak for how these branches look at American or western films/horror but I have garnered a huge love … Continue reading Foreign Horror + Recs

Favorites: Top 10 Episodes of The Twilight Zone (S2)

The first part, discussing some of my favorite episodes, left me with an odd number of favorites (7) and 5 honorable mentions to create an even list. Season 2 of The Twilight Zone is quite different. The season has many, many favorite or honorable mentions that it was harder to limit down to just ten … Continue reading Favorites: Top 10 Episodes of The Twilight Zone (S2)

Favorites: Top 10 Horror TV Shows

How have I not talked about this topic as a whole? Television and horror go great together. Now, horror can be straight up horror and gore, supernatural or paranormal elements, or include fantasy, sci-fi, mystery and thriller. I avoided doing television for a long time because depending on the show, the seasons can be either … Continue reading Favorites: Top 10 Horror TV Shows

SoH Reviews: Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth

The Hellraiser franchise… a love and hate relationship I have with this franchise. Granted, I haven’t seen ALL of what Hellraiser has to offer but I have enough insight to where it has so much potential (still) to become greater or take that next leap into attracting new fans. But this post is not about … Continue reading SoH Reviews: Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth

Favorites: Top (7) Episodes of The Twilight Zone (S1) + HM

A series that is well beloved and over time seems to be better and better is the classic CBS series, The Twilight Zone, created by Rod Serling. It was almost too ambitious to try to do something like a favorite episode from each season or limiting down what to do. So for this series, I'll … Continue reading Favorites: Top (7) Episodes of The Twilight Zone (S1) + HM

Favorites: October Watches

October 2020 has the BIGGEST watchlist so far and it’s time to share some of my favorites so far.

SoH Reviews: The Evil

An unexpected watch… comes in the form of a 1970s horror film from the streaming site Shudder.

Favorites: Ranking the Final Girls

Ah Final Girls, it’s a trope that has been around since the beginning of the slasher genre yet coined by a woman Carol J. Clover in her novel, Men, Women and Chainsaws: Gender in the Modern Horror Film circa 1992 and since then, we have used the term for the “last standing” girl (or sometimes … Continue reading Favorites: Ranking the Final Girls

Favorites: Ranking ANOES Franchise

Overdue for a long, long time. The Nightmare on Elm Street franchise is my favorite franchise in the genre.

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.
