Movie reviews for horror fans; from gruesome bone-chillers to dark horror thrillers, a showcase for frightful films that seek to entertain and to terrify.
The Fear Street Trilogy is Bloody Fun
Fear Street was a series of books that I devoured as a young teen, it was what I moved to directly off of Goosebumps. I remember the cheerleaders story the best, I think one girl gets cooked alive in hot steam from the showers? That stuck with me. From there, I quickly moved on to the likes of Stephen King and long forgot about the Fear Street books but when I heard that Netflix was making a trilogy of movies related to the books, I was intrigued. Skeptical but still, I love horror and thought it would be fun to check out.
Crimson Peak - A Movie Review
Perhaps we notice things once the time comes to see them. Showing up at the mansion in 2015, Crimson Peak is about a young woman who is made a special offer. After a family tragedy, Edith is torn between two sides. Moving into a mysterious mansion with her lover, she discovers secrets of the past.
Review of Blood Red Sky
I'm not the biggest fan of vampire movies, but I really liked Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and Netflix says Blood Red Sky is currently its most watched new movie, so I gave it shot. And I think it's outstanding, or, more precisely, a powerful, original mix of two venerable genres -- terrorist hijacking of a plane, and vampires -- with pounding action throughout and a great can't-catch-your-breath ending.
'Old' Review—Hilariously Bad Horror

"Fear Street Part 3: 1666" REVIEW
I previously wrote about the first two instalments of the Fear Street trilogy in my reviews of Part One and Part Two. While the first movie failed to wow me, I had a lot of fun with the second portion of the series. Now that the series is over, was it worth three feature length productions? Well...
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It
At this point, you’d have to be living under a rock not to have heard of the Conjuring universe and seen at least a couple of the films. When James Wan’s The Conjuring made its debut in 2013, it turned out to be more than just a reasonably decent haunted house movie. It launched a billion-dollar horror franchise that remains wildly popular to this day.
Don’t Breathe 2 Trailer Released
Don't Breathe was released in 2016. The plot focused on a break in, except the victims of the movie are the ones doing the breaking in. This movie was well-liked and it was enjoyed by the public. The money that was made from this was more than enough to make sure that there would be a sequel, at some point.

"Fear Street Part 2: 1978" REVIEW
I previously wrote about the first instalment of the Fear Street trilogy here. While the movie itself didn't blow me away, it did leave me excited to see how the trilogy would develop past its initial chapter. How did it perform? Well...
