    Reed Alexander's Horror Review of 'A Nightmare on Elm Street" (2010)

    There was nothing really wrong with this remake. Actually, it was pretty damn good. Sure, there was tons of unnecessary CGI, yeah it wasn't Robert Englund's Freddy Krueger, YES the original A Nightmare on Elm Street 1984 (Elm Street) was better, but this was good, damn good.

    Reed Alexander's Horror Review of 'Bubba Ho-Tep' (2002)

    If it wasn't for the internet, this would've become just another cult classic... I guess that sorta means it still is a cult classic, but this movie could have faded into obscurity if it was released only a couple years earlier in the late 90s. Meaning, they kinda lucked out riding the crest of the internet age. Right at the start of it all, a time when you could still go viral but right before going viral had lost all meaning.

    Reed Alexander's Horror Review of 'The Crazies' (2010)

    This just wasn't as much fun as the original. Now, I'm not saying the original was good, I actually thought it was kind of boring considering the concept they had to work with. The difference between the original and the remake can be spelled out by tone and pacing. So far as tone goes, the original mixed a level of absurdity with the violence. Yeah there were rampaging lunatics, but some of them were fun rampaging lunatics. It gave you the idea that the virus might cause you to be violent, but in random and even wacky ways. We're not talking comedy levels here, just enough to note the difference.

    Reed Alexander's Horror Review of 'Suspiria' (2018)

    My fucking god... where do I even begin? What an absolutely stunning movie. Everything from the dance choreography to the setting, to the story. There was only a solitary moment that was out of place and I'm really pulling hairs to be critical of even that!

    I knew I was going to like this when it started out with some random douchebag mumbling nonsense, whacked out on a cocktail of drugs. Specifically ketamine, fentanyl, and crack. For sure, that would likely kill the most hard core drug addict, but it sounds like a wild ride down a short rabbit hole.

    Reed Alexander's Horror Review of 'Suspiria' (1977)

    It's like a right of god damn passage for a horror critic to review this movie, and since the remake, I knew at some point I'd have to bite the bullet and get it over with. I'd seen it a long damn time ago and remembered it fondly. Though, I never did understand how Suspiria became a critics choice for seriously every fucking critic in the horror industry. Don't get me wrong, its good. Damn good. And for 1977, WAY the fuck ahead of it's time.
