    Sleepwalkers

    ★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Ok...so what do we have here? An incestuous magical cat-monster mother/son duo is in town so mom can eat a virgin girl.

    Yep, that's pretty much it.

    If you watch this one, do so while drinking. Here are some rules we came up with to help you with your journey:

    1. A person or a cat steps on a trap.
    2. A cat hisses or meows.
    3. A cat attacks a cat monster.
    4. Cat monster magic!
    5. Mom and son get intimate.

  • Us

    Us

    ★★★★

    I watch a lot of horror movies, so my threshold for what scares me is pretty high. Having said that, I wouldn't say that Us "scared" me in the traditional sense, but it did really creep me out. There is some terrifying imagery going on here, and like Get Out, the underlying message is powerful and upsetting.

    I want to say more, but I really don't want to give anything away. There is more to this film than you see in the trailers. Go see it. Now.

  • Pet Sematary

    Pet Sematary

    ★★★

    The first half of Pet Sematary is relatively faithful to the original story, and even though some creative liberties were taken, the themes that make the novel so compelling are very present. I really like this part of the film.

    Then in the second half, things take a really hard turn. The themes of loss and grief, which are so expertly crafted and executed in the first half of the film, are seemingly abandoned here in favor of shocks and…

    Fahrenheit 11/9

    ★★★★

    Hard to watch...but we should all watch it.

  • Halloween

    Halloween

    ★★★½

    I initially hated this movie, but it has grown on me over time. I think knowing about the studio interference, and also understanding that Rob Zombie had John Carpenter's blessing to do his own thing have given me a much better appreciation for what Zombie tried to do. It's not perfect, but it's definitely one of the better Halloween movies in the series.

  • Captain Marvel

    Captain Marvel

    ★★★★

    This movie is good. Like, REALLY good! It's probably one of my favorite MCU movies.

  • Leprechaun 2

    Leprechaun 2

    ★★★

    Yep, we celebrated St. Patrick's with a leprechaun movie and green cocktails! This movie is bad, but it knows it and embraces it. Good fun, especially under the influence. Oh, and Warwick Davis is awesome.

  • Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror

    Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror

    ★★★★★

    I love this documentary. Very honest and thorough look at the history of black Americans in the horror genre. I also think Ken Foree and Keith David need their own show!

  • Room 237

    Room 237

    ★★★½

    I don't believe any of the theories put forth in this documentary, but I still find the in depth analysis fascinating. I also like the unbiased approach taken by the director.

  • Cam

    Cam

    ★★★½

    I liked most of Cam. There was a lot of tension built throughout the movie, and Madeline Brewer was great. The ending really didn't do it for me though.

  • Escape to Witch Mountain

    Escape to Witch Mountain

    ★★★

    Good weird 70s Disney movie fun.

  • Annihilation

    Annihilation

    ★★★★½

    Such a beautiful and interesting movie. I'm not sure if it'll go on my top 10 horror films list of 2018, mainly because it's more science fiction than horror, but I really liked it.
