Contains light spoilers from The Witch (2015) I’d like to begin with a dream I had recently. In this dream, I was walking with my 2 year old daughter when a man approached us. I felt uneasy at his presence but did nothing. He then knelt down to my daughter’s level and reached out a long, thin finger. He touched her lip. As his finger left its place, I began to see a wart forming. It was growing fast. From that wart, a few others were beginning to emerge from her skin surround
Beetlejuice has been in my top 10 favorite movies of all time since I could remember. Since ’93 I’ve been in love with Tim Burton’s visual aesthetic when I saw Nightmare Before Christmas 3 times in theaters. I was 3 years old when the movie came out. Beetlejuice is one of those films that I honestly can’t recall my first time viewing. I’ve seen the movie countless times and I still love watching it. Because the movie came out in ’88, I never had the opportunity to see the cas
I’ve been making movies since I was a kid. I had the awesome privilege of owning a Hi8 camera that essentially took the place of my right hand. I recorded everything from trips to Walmart, my voice messages with different backgrounds, to movies that I was sure that I would one day be able to edit “professionally”.

I stumbled across The Stylist a few weeks ago while browsing through the Shudder library. While looking for something new and exciting to fold laundry to, I came across the cover which caught my attention. The hover-over description simply read “A hair stylist has some very disturbing plans for her final appointment of the day.” That was good enough for me. Being that it’s “Women in Horror Month” I figured it was appropriate to write my first official movie review on one that
Since I was a kid, I’ve been drawn to the darker side of fiction and cinema. I grew up seeing The Nightmare Before Christmas in theaters on multiple occasions, and loving movies like The Halloween Tree, The Addams Family, Hocus Pocus, Don’t Look Under the Bed, and the list goes on.
