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

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: The Stanford Prison Experiment

This week I’m reviewing The Stanford Prison Experiment. Here’s what it’s about: “Twenty-four male students out of seventy-five were selected to take on randomly assigned roles of prisoners and guards in a mock prison situated in the basement of the Stanford psychology building.” I have always been fascinated by how disturbing this experiment is. And right off, I was impressed by the format in which it was filmed. Something was missing though, in that I … Read more

Movie Review: Oculus

This week I’m reviewing Oculus, an excellent mix of suspense and horror. Here’s what it’s about: “The twenty-one year-old Timothy “Tim” Allen Russell is discharged from a mental institution by his psychiatric Dr. Shawn Graham completely healed from a childhood trauma where his father purportedly tortured and killed his mother before being killed himself by Tim. His sister Kaylie welcomes him in the parking area and brings him home. Then she tells that they need … Read more

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

Movie Review: Little Red Rotting Hood

This week I’m reviewing Little Red Rotting Hood, and here’s what it’s about: “For years, the old woman in the woods has secretly kept the wolves of the forest at bay. But when the woman dies, the creatures suddenly attack the residents of a nearby small town. As more and more people turn up dead, the townsfolk discover something far more sinister than wolves lurking in the backwoods and fight to save their home from … Read more

Movie Review: The Horde (2009)

This week I’m reviewing The Horde (2009) for my monthly zombie movie choice. And in February I’m featuring a woman in my choices for Women in Horror Month. Here’s what the movie is about about: “A posse of crooked cops, malevolent gangsters and a horde of walking dead are the centre point of this gruesome, tight, action packed, claustrophobic tale of retribution and escape. Penned like animals, on the top floor of a deserted high-rise … Read more

Movie Review: The Gift

This week I’m reviewing The Gift, not so much a horror movie as a psychological thriller, but equally disturbing a movie. Here’s what it’s about: “Simon and Robyn are a young married couple whose life is going just as planned until a chance encounter with an acquaintance from Simon’s high school sends their world into a harrowing tailspin. Simon doesn’t recognize Gordo at first, but after a series of uninvited encounters and mysterious gifts prove … Read more

Movie Review: Cooties

More zombies this week. During a little holiday downtime I watched Cooties, Here’s what it’s about: “COOTIES is a horror comedy with unexpected laughs and unapologetic thrills. When a cafeteria food virus turns elementary school children into killer zombies, a group of misfit teachers must band together to escape the playground carnage. The film stars Elijah Wood (The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings), Rainn Wilson (“The Office”), and Alison Pill (“The Newsroom”) as teachers who … Read more

Movie Review: I Survived a Zombie Holocaust

Back on zombies this week with I Survived a Zombie Holocaust. Here’s what it’s about: “A young runner, on a Zombie film set, has the first day from hell when real Zombies overrun the set.” They could have come up with a better title for this one. The current title has nothing to do with the plot. Anyway, I didn’t hate this movie. It’s very slow to start, and the kind of zombie movie you … Read more

Movie Review: It Follows

Hey, I’m back with a bad one, It Follows. Here’s what it’s about: “A young woman is followed by an unknown supernatural force after a sexual encounter.” I happened upon It Follows while browsing for horror movies on cable. There was no rating for the movie, so I took my chances based on the description. I was sadly disappointed and quickly lost interest. This could have been a good teen scream movie based on the … Read more

Movie Review: Exists

Sorry for taking last week off. It was a crazy week. This week’s movie is Exists, and I have mixed feelings about this one. Here’s what it’s about: “For five friends, it was a chance for a summer getaway- a weekend of camping in the Texas Big Thicket. But visions of a carefree vacation are shattered with an accident on a dark and desolate country road. In the wake of the accident, a bloodcurdling force … Read more

Movie Review: The Revenant

This week I’m reviewing The Revenant, the new release directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu and starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Considering what the main character, Hugh Glass, goes through, it is an undead movie of sorts. In case you haven’t heard, here’s what it’s about: “A frontiersman on a fur trading expedition in the 1820s fights for survival after being mauled by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team.” Hugh Glass’s … Read more

Movie Review: Frankenstein’s Army

This is an old review I never posted. I had to stray away from zombies and into re-animation when I saw Frankenstein’s Army on Netflix. Although some would classify these Frankenstein-like characters as zombies, I don’t. Being a traditionalist, I consider zombies voodoo or flesh eating characters, but that’s one girl’s opinion. Anyway, here’s what it’s about: “Toward the end of World War II, Russian soldiers pushing into eastern Germany stumble across a secret Nazi … Read more
