  • Fahrenheit 11/9

    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.

  • The House That Jack Built

    The House That Jack Built

    ★★★★

    I really don't get what all of the outrage is about. Other than being a little too long, I thought it was a pretty good film. There were some shocking parts, but this is also a horror movie with a serial killer as it's subject. Then again, I've seen a lot of horror movies in my life, so maybe I'm a bit jaded. It's also an arthouse film, so there's that too. If any of this doesn't sound like your cup of tea, you may want to skip it. :)

  • Upgrade

    Upgrade

    ★★★★

    My expectations were a bit off for this movie. I was expecting a straight up horror movie, probably because it is written and directed by Leigh Whannell, but no worries. My fault for not checking the genre beforehand. Having said that, I really enjoyed it. It's an interesting story, has great visuals, really good acting...and all on a $5m budget. Very impressive.

  • Hatchet

    Hatchet

    ★★★½

    This one was a lot of fun. Kinda campy and silly, but also very brutal and gory. Our movies for Shocktober have been pretty intense so far, so this was a nice moment of levity for us. :)
