Movie Review: 'Nope' Spoiler Free Review
A shoe stands on its end, the toe pointing into the air. It’s an evocative image, shoes don’t do that. But a shoe does do that in the new Jordan Peele horror thriller Nope. Come to think of it, the sight of a shoe in such an unnatural position is the kind of image that might cause one to say ‘Nope’ while slowly backing away from whatever might be the cause of this image. It’s not just a shoe though, there’s a well placed drop of blood on that shoe as well that offers another disturbing aspect to this sight. Then the context for the shoe comes fully into frame and…
Last Train to Section E
He struggled to push away the layers of overwhelming fatigue that made even opening his eyes an almost impossible task. Not fully conscious but he was aware enough to realize that this was not the result of a night of overindulging. No amount of beer or even whisky could ever create this kind of havoc. This had to be some sort of drug, and it was a lot more powerful than the weed he occasionally vaped. Slowly and painfully his brain shook off the effects and his eyes began to open.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2022) - Movie Review
The latest entry into the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise is a bumpy one, although not entirely awful, there are plenty of gross gore effects. Leatherface himself looks terrifying and is equally deadly. Because of this, the horror in general is very well executed, characters die painfully, within seconds of meeting this lunatic. There really is no escape, as Leatherface knows his hometown like the back of his hand, while all of these strangers run around like headless chickens, unable to escape from death's grip! Acting wise, people genuinely look terrified when Leatherface charges for them. So with all of these intense thrills, what is it exactly that makes Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2022) a mixed horror movie rather than a perfect slasher?

4 feminist horror movies that will make you reflect
Horror movies evolve over time, dealing with topics that influence society in some way. A few valuable films have dealt with feminism and women's issues that inevitably influence women's lives.

New Classic Movie Review: Jordan Peele's 'Us'
Us was a horror movie event when it was released in 2019. Jordan Peele has turned his every work into something everyone needs to see, something confirmed by his recent film Nope. Following the breakout success of his Academy Award winning Get Out, Peele busted through some very high expectations and created another masterful horror movie. Us is a chilling, gripping, watch-it-through-your-fingers, entertaining creepfest. That it is also masterfully acted and directed is an example of how too many filmmakers allow genre to hold them back. The best filmmakers, like Peele elevate the genre rather than lower themselves to it.
Don't let the bed bugs bite
It's the little things in life sometimes. A good meal. A familiar song on the radio A soft bed to sleep in after sleeping on benches and in sleeping bags for the past few weeks.
The Red Pickup Truck
Mary sat in the passenger seat of the pickup truck waiting for Tom to get back. He had told her to wait in the truck for him. They were parked in a dirty old junkyard that Tom had come to look for a part for his new (well, new to him) 1962 Chevy pickup truck that he had bought just the week before. It was a beautiful cherry red and in pretty good condition even if it was 3 years old now. The interior was almost flawless and Tom had scrubbed and cleaned the vehicle so it would look its best for their date. Tom had left the keys in the ignition so Mary reached over and turned the key just enough to let the radio play. She scanned the dial looking for a good rock-n-roll station hoping to hear another great song by The Beatles. She loved their music, it was different than most music being done in the U.S. these days and she also liked the new look they brought with them from England.
The Train By Nickolas Jacobs BANG!!! My eyes open. I’m lying face up on the floor of…somewhere. Due to the lack of lighting, I am ignorant of my surroundings. The sounds under me allude to a train. As I stand, a sharp pain hits my left abdomen. The frost on the window tells me that heat has been absent here for quite some time.
From the Sink

Dreams Are Not Enough
Except in dreams, you’re never really free. -Warren Zevon Three weeks ago, my job laid me off, with two weeks’ pay in advance, and an invitation for rehire after this whole pandemic blows over, which I guess was nice of them. When I first got the email, I kind of wished they had just let me go entirely, instead of hanging me over a cliff for however long this quarantine lasts. Two weeks’ pay will last me almost exactly that long, after rent and groceries. If they had fired me outright, I could have started looking for another job right away. Now I’m hamstrung by the email. I definitely sensed an implicit expectation that I’d come back. But I guess I should be thankful. So many folks are out of work and out of money now. So many are dying. I am young and I am healthy. I’m doing fine and I know it.
