I have had the pleasure of consuming great horror this year. I’ll gladly speak highly of The Haunting of Hill House. Annihilation checked all of my sci-fi/horror boxes while adding in plenty of Lovecraftian lore. And Mandy was the best kind of gruesome. However, nothing had quite the impact that Hereditary did. If you have not seen Hereditary, kindly remove yourself from the rock you’ve been living under.
I saw it. It kicked my ass.
I analyzed with friends.
I saw it again.
Day 6: From the best seller that made millions believe in the unbelievable… for God’s sake, get out! Join us as we discuss our 6 movie, the Amityville Horror. This movie is a classic for a reason and I love going back to these to understand where horror tropes came from. The priest, doors closing on their own, shrill notes, spirits yelling “get out!” are all present and executed just as well. My favorite has to be George’s slow spiral towards insanity. Yes, we’ve all seen it
In this world of uncertainty, there are some things in life we know to be true, and some pieces of age-old advice that we should all heed. When you live in the middle of nowhere, never, never answer the door for Strangers. The Strangers: Prey at Night dropped their first teaser, and naturally Bloody Disgusting was right on top of it. The trailer has been watched, my curiosity has been stoked and I’m ready for the release of Strangers 2. I’ll be honest, this second installment
The negative side effects of binge watching internet & tv series Not too long ago, I was in the middle of a conversation and was caught off guard by a comment that left me in a minor state of shock. Conversing about the information age we live in, I was told that this was part of the problem that millennials face. According to them, we have all of the knowledge of the world at our finger tips and anytime we want to know something we head to Wikipedia, YouTube and IMDB. They c
If you know me and my kids personally, you’ll know that my kids and I all share a love for the macabre! This is something that I’m super proud of. Maybe it’s because I can see the effects of parenting and I love the idea of molding these little minds to think the way I do, or maybe it’s because I love seeing other people’s reactions to my kids singing made up songs about severed heads while laughing hysterically. I don’t entirely know why their dark side makes me feel proud,
I finally had the opportunity to see M. Night Shyamalan’s latest movie, Split! After a solid week of attempting to talk my wife into seeing it with me, I gave up on her and I hit up the only other person I thought could enjoy this film as much as I was about to, my brother in law.
Charlie and I went to the theater and saw it on their biggest screen, with best audio and video quality, had perfect seating with a perfect cup of movie theater coffee. It was going to be the perfe
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. These are the films that captivated and stuck with me! I was able to experience these horrors that people had to go through in film, like a little sister being kidnapped by a group of witch sisters
