"The Beach House" Movie Review

Getting its release in the heart of summer during a global pandemic certainly doesn’t hurt director Jeffrey A. Brown’s debut feature The Beach House from feeling particularly timely and relevant. And though there are certainly a handful of decent scares and a solid, pervading air of uneasiness...

'Candyman' (1992) A Sweetened Movie Review

'Candyman' is beloved by horror fans all around the globe and I'm certainly one of the many. Seeing how there's a remake on its way into the public soon... MAYBE... It seems to me that it might be time to take a look back at what made this early '90s horror flick so special!

"Countdown" Movie Review

Playing like a harmless mash-up of Drag Me To Hell and Happy Death Day (with a little Scream thrown in for fun), writer-director Justin Dec’s feature debut Countdown is a fun, horror-lite movie that succeeds despite relying too much on tired genre tropes and jump scares. And though it takes its...

Should I Watch..? 'It' (2017)

Continuing his countdown to Halloween, Benjamin Cox sums up the courage to watch arguably one of the most successful horror films of recent years. But how does it stack up to the revered TV mini-series from back in the day? Time to get freaky...
