Movie Review: Stalled

This zombie movie is on my ‘best of’ list. Am re-posting a few that qualify as Christmas movies. Anyway, Stalled was awesome! Here’s what it’s about: “A janitor gets trapped in a women’s restroom and encounters an all-out attack by a horde of zombies.” This movie occurs on Christmas eve, and like the synopsis says, a janitor is trapped in a ladies room toilet stall at the start of a zombie apocalypse. Wouldn’t that suck! … Read more

Movie Review: Bad Grandma’s

This week I’m reviewing an oddity, Bad Grandma’s. Here’s what it’s about: “Four grandmothers accidentally kill a con man. When his partner shows up, things go south quickly.” Yes, that’s Florence Henderson front and center, and Pam Grier by her side. All I really have to say is the mix of grandmas had me laughing my ass off. Sure, the story line wasn’t the greatest, but I didn’t mind. And the acting wasn’t the greatest, … Read more

Movie Review: Cargo

This week I’m reviewing Cargo, an excellent zombie movie. Here’s what it’s about: “After an epidemic spreads all over Australia, a father searches for someone willing to protect his daughter.” I have nothing bad to say about this movie. I was glued to the TV the whole time. Martin Freeman was great in his role as the loving husband and father, only intent on saving his little girl. The best part of the movie is … Read more

Movie Review: Bunks

This week I’m reviewing Bunks, a fun zombie movie for kids. Here’s what it’s about: “When two trouble-making brothers scam their way into an idyllic summer camp, they find themselves leading a rag tag cabin of boys into breaking every rule in the book. But the real trouble starts when they accidentally trigger a curse that brings a camp fire zombie story to life.” Bunks is goofy in a way kids love. It’s horror comedy, … Read more

Movie Review: Twisted Nightmare

In honor of the return of Friday #HorrorChat, I’m reviewing Twisted Nightmare, a teen slasher movie set at a summer camp in the 80s. Here’s what it’s about: “A group of teenagers win a trip to a summer camp they had attended as children. However, soon after they get there they begin to disappear one by one. The survivors suspect that the disappearances may be connected to the death of a handicapped child at the … Read more

A New Appreciation for Horror Comedy Actor Adam Scott

Initially I had intended to review the movie Little Evil staring Adam Scott as the step father of the ‘little evil’ boy. Then I remembered Scott is a father in Krampus and is currently starring in one of my new favorite TV horror comedy series, Ghosted. I was first introduced to Scott as Ben Wyatt in Parks and Recreation, a show I’ve watched over and over during down times in life to lift my spirits. … Read more

Movie Review: The Babysitter

Time for a movie review. This time it’s The Babysitter. Here’s what it’s about: “Cole (Judah Lewis) loves his babysitter (Samara Weaving) Bee. She’s hot, funny, and popular. One night, in a moment of defiance, Cole secretly stays up past his bedtime to discover she’s actually a cold-blooded killer who’s in league with the Devil. He now must spend his night evading Bee’s band of killers who will stop at nothing to prevent Cole from … Read more

Movie Review: Haunted House (1921)

Hey folks, welcome back to weekly entertainment reviews. Until whenever, I’ll be focusing on horror comedy, so join me for a few laughs. This week I’m reviewing Haunted House, staring Buster Keaton. Here’s what it’s about: “Buster is a bank clerk. Overturned glue gets everything, mostly the money, stuck to everything else. When robbers show up he can’t “stick ’em up” because his hands are stuck in his pockets. The robbers’ hideout is a haunted … Read more

What’s Up Doc?

Howdy all! I’ve been absent for quite some time from my blog and social media, and plan to continue my aloofness through the end of the year at least. At the same time, I’ve noticed there have still been quite a few visitors to my blog every month. So I’m going to write a blog post a month to let you know what I have been doing. I’m Writing! Yes, I am writing…A LOT. Half … Read more

Movie Review: Hell and Back

This week I’m reviewing Hell and Back, an animated horror comedy. Here’s what it’s about: “Two best friends set out to rescue their pal after he’s accidentally dragged to hell.” This is a fun movie. I did enjoy it, although I can’t give it a spectacular review. Hell and Back was completely and totally predictable. The comedy was the same old same old, as if the writers stole a bunch of jokes an threw them … Read more

Movie Review: Oculus

This week I’m reviewing Oculus, an excellent mix of suspense and horror.

Movie Review: Night of the Living Deb

This week I’ve got a goody, at least in my opinion. I’m reviewing Night of the Living Deb. Here’s what it’s about: “After a girls’ night out, endearingly awkward Deb wakes up in the apartment of the most attractive guy in Portland, Maine. She’s thrilled, but she can’t remember much of what got her there. Pretty boy Ryan only knows it was a mistake and ushers her out the door… into a full-scale zombie apocalypse. … Read more

Movie Review: Freaks of Nature

This week I’m reviewing Freaks of Nature, a mishmash of  zombies, vampires, and aliens. Here’s what it’s about: “In Freaks of Nature, we welcome you to Dillford, where three days ago, everything was peaceful and business as usual: the vampires were at the top of the social order, the zombies were at the bottom, and the humans were getting along in the middle. But this delicate balance was ripped apart when the alien apocalypse arrived … Read more
