Annabelle: Creation – Why Didn’t I Like It?

Annabelle Creation Poster

I love the Capitol Theatre in Cleveland.  I guess it’s because I’ve always read about how awesome it is to see throwback movies at the New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles.  The lobby is ancient and lacks the bright neon colors today’s plazas sport.  The bathrooms show the almost 100 years of …

Get Out – Let’s Talk about Race…

Get Out (2017)

Jordan Peele’s new movie Get Out is going to be difficult to review without discussing race, racial division, and how we treat each other in general.  As Peele managed to navigate the landscape quite brilliantly, I may not. That’s not coming from ignorance.  It’s coming from….ignorance (but without the stank I guess). …

Dead West: Road Trips & Serial Killers

Dead West (2016)

In this age of GPS locators, NSA surveillance, and cameras everywhere, I’m surprised that serial killers still can operate today.  Think about it:  If you ran into somebody without a past, no cell phone, and sticking to side roads when they drove while paying for everything in cash, you KNOW that …

Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary (2017)

Trailer for The Path to Pet Sematary

Full disclosure: Pet Sematary is one of my all-time favorite horror movies, and by far my favorite adaptation of a Stephen King book. I’m hardly alone in this opinion; Mary Lambert’s 1989 masterpiece seems to garner a strong reaction from every horror buff, and simply screeching “Rachel!” may send a …

Devil Lives Here, The (2016)

The Devil Lies Here (2016)

Directed by Rodrigo Gasparini and Dante Vescio Starring Pedro Carvalho, Ivo Muller, Sidney Santiago, Clara Verdier The Devil Lives Here is the kind of movie that’ll make modern horror directors jealous. Sounds like a hot and steaming load of hype, right? Granted, it’s a pretty big claim, but it’s one …
