With Halloween just around the corner, I thought it would fun to provide my loyal readers with a nice spooky treat for this 31st by reviewing a handful of scary short films. What all these films have in common is that they are all works from the company Workobey Films company, founded by Canadian filmmaker Andrew J.D. Robinson. Having also founded the 15 Second Horror Challenge, Robinson has more than proven his dedication to the horror genre, with Robinson and his company being the mastermind behind the well-crafted Halloween short film, We Know You Are Home.
Brief Synopsis: A doctor, Holly, is driving to a remote getaway. As she drives she speaks to her husband on the phone. She tells him that her conference is going on all weekend and she may not have good reception. He tells her he loves her and they end the call.
Do you know what happened to the boy who asked too many questions?
He got answers?
Brief Synopsis: A single mother, Katrina, takes her young daughter, Clara, to start a new life across America. As she is driving, she gets a puncture and is forced to stop and try and change the tyre. Whilst Katrina struggles to change the tyre, Clara goes playing in the dusty lands. Clara gets bitten by a rattlesnake, her screams causing Katrina to come running. Katrina seeks assistance in a nearby motorhome.
You know... for such a great classic, its two central themes really just don't make any sense. Not the whole evil children thing. But maybe it's a part of that?
Vampires are cool. Vampire movies might just be a little cooler. In honour of Spooktober, I'm gonna count down the top nine movies about vampires because I want to talk about vampires, and I feel that vampires don't get the credit and attention that they deserve! Also, I'm not going to talk about any of the Dracula movies, because hot take: EVERY DRACULA MOVIE IS BAD. Gary Oldman has a terrible wig in the Coppola one, aside from Bela Lugosi's performance, the original is boring, and I haven't seen Dracula Untold, but somehow I doubt it will change my mind. So without further ado, Vampire Movies.
Personally, I like to celebrate Halloween the entire month of October. I like to get in the spooky mood by watching horror movies. You can basically find them anywhere; Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Disc, and they tend to release in theaters around this time as well. While this list isn’t ranked, I do think these are the best of the horror movies.
Can we play the shooty game, Uncle David?
I don’t want us to get in trouble, Felix.
We’ll have to play it with the sound off.
The 1950s were a period of time where horror started to become a part of the consciousness of the American population. It wasn't quite something that was taken seriously as it would become in the 1960s, but it was still certainly fun. In this blog, I'll be talking about the best 11 horror movies from that beginning era. They're not entirely in order, except for the first one.
Since I'm too old to go trick or treating now... I usually find myself watching a horror movie to celebrate October 31st. I also don't want to pay extra for my night in. Which is why I felt the need to make a list of 10 Netflix exclusive Horror movies (okay, it's mostly movies, there are also a couple of t.v. shows and a collection of short stories from different animators). The good news is that these are all Netflix Originals! So no matter what country you are in, these titles should be available to you on Netflix. Hope you liked to get scared. Happy Halloween!
Yeah, this was a pretty fun fan film. The biggest things I like about this one is that it goes off the tangent universe of the second Texas Chainsaw Massacre (TCM), but it still tries to keep the feel of the first. The difference between TCM and TCM2 is that TCM tried, in all of its efforts, to be a serious horror movie, while the second was more of the typical 80s-90s 'So bad it's good' slapstick. However, TMC2, while hardly serious horror, added a layer of almost alien weirdness to the Sawyer family. In the first movie, they were nothing more than backwards, inbred knuckle-draggers. In the second one, there was almost this paradoxical ethos, a ritual of a sorts. The first movie was just a simple attempt to exploit cultured society's fear of hillbilly yokels, while the second tried to expand on the concept and just went balls out weird.
