Oh man did I call this one. Previously, when I ranked the best Part Three’s in movie franchises, I noted that when I started putting together the list, I was SHOCKED by how many of them were great. I ended up leaving off several high quality movies because there was such a dearth of winners when movies hit their third entry. So I wondered… if … Continue reading Top Ten: Best Part 4’s In A Franchise
Sometimes these Fridays The 13th just sneak right up on you! I didn’t even know this one was coming. I better glance at the calendar and see when the next one might be so I can prepare. (January!) Anyway, welcome back to another edition of THIRTEEN THE FRIDAYTH, the insipidly named series where I discuss random horror movie goings on. Mostly since I just love … Continue reading Thirteen The Fridayth: Shudder Roulette!
*NOTE: The middle section of this article will contain spoilers, and I’ll delineate where they start and end!* Is there any Halloween movie more divisive than the 2018 outing that reset the franchise to another timeline–its FIFTH if you count the Rob Zombie and Halloween 3 portions of the multiverse!–and started a new Michael Myers trilogy? When it comes to discussing the Halloween movies, there … Continue reading Halloween Kills Review
Here’s the thing. I usually break down my movie reviews into three sections: Non-Spoiler intro / Spoiler story section / Non-spoiler wrap-up. There is virtually no way possible I can talk about this movie without at least mild spoilers. I just wouldn’t have very much to say! So here’s your advance warning: This ENTIRE ARTICLE is a SPOILER WARNING! Yeah, look at that trailer! Man, … Continue reading Malignant Review
I was improperly raised on horror movies as a child, as I have detailed before. In addition to the semi-regular Jason-based nightmares that are just ingrained in my DNA at this point, it has given me a lifelong love of the genre. Horror cinema just combines some of the best parts of every other field of film-making; they can be funny and mysterious and tense and … Continue reading Top Ten: Horror Films of the 2010’s
I’m not crazy, okay? Just… don’t forget that as we go on here. I mean, I’m nuts for Jason Movies, but that’s allowable, right? They are good-to-great movies! Well… okay-to-great. All right, they are sucky-to-great. I know, I know. Jason Goes To Hell still exists. More on that one later, though, because it’s about to be my Exception-That-Proves-The-Rule movie. (I have actually always hated that … Continue reading Thirteen The Fridayth: Multiple Jasons Theory!
I don’t actually call the Friday The 13th movies “Friday The 13th”. I mean… I know that’s the name of the Franchise, but it just doesn’t work for me. They’re “Jason Movies”. They’ve always been “Jason Movies” to me, and they always will be “Jason Movies” to me. Even when a startling number of them don’t have… you know… Jason in them. That’s weird. But … Continue reading Ranking The Friday The 13th Franchise Movies
In case the title isn’t tipping you off, we’ve been here before. Twice, even! Nary a Friday the 13th passes without my ranting about horror flicks. It’s mostly a horror stream of consciousness, frankly. I never go into these articles with a plan. Planning is for people that have something important to say! So what’s not important right now…? I was recently at some very dear friends’ going … Continue reading Thirteen The Fridayth: Part 3!
Wait a minute… This feels familiar. (Also, the longer I look at the word (“word”) “Fridayth”, the more I think it looks like the name of a Norse deity. Just throw a misplaced J in there, and we are good to go. Frijdayth! The dawn of our Norn blessings!) Anyway, remember back in October when we ranked our best candies in honor of Halloween? Originally, I wanted that … Continue reading Thirteen The Fridayth: Part 2
When it comes to ranking the 10 scariest movie monsters the challenge is separating themonsters from the humans. Because, while tons of humans behave monstrously or becomesupernatural monsters by magic or sheer will, they are/were nonetheless human.I believe it’s cheating to put some seriously scary human characters like Michael Meyers(Halloween) or Jason Voorhees in this category because while they are excellent movie villains,they don’t quite … Continue reading Book Of Lies’ Top Ten Horror Movie Monsters!
I have had a long love/hate relationship with horror movies. I have written on my previous site in some depth about my history with horror flicks, and I will be revisiting those articles from the archive soon enough (as in: HERE’S the first one). The abbreviated backstory is this: I was RAISED on awful 80’s slashers. When I was [single-digits] years old, my mom, dad, … Continue reading Top Ten: Horror Movie Monsters/Villains
The original Halloween movie is very sneakily probably the movie I have seen more than any other. It seems weird, but I watched it a lot as a kid, and even as an adult I watch it with some regularity during the Halloween season. So usually at least once more with each passing year. Every fall, the leaves change, the weather gets colder, and I … Continue reading Ranking The Halloween Movies
I am always very excited to do a Friday the 13th article. And then, it turns out… I don’t really have that much to say about Friday the 13th. I am not a freemason in the dark ages, it seems (Right? That’s where Friday the 13th as a relevant thing comes from, right? Something to do with freemasons and a murder conspiracy or something? Or … Continue reading Thirteen The Fridayth
Before we get too far into this, let’s review the impetus for my watching The Exorcist for the first time ever (YES, I know, right!? More on that in a minute): This fantastic piece of work was made by the same man who gave SWO Productions all of our banners and icons, the incomparable Manster of Pint O’ Comics! Check him out on Twitter and … Continue reading Movie Reviews: The Exorcist
