The Devil’s Rejects (2005) Film Review | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 59

Oh boy. This was terrible. Picking up after House of 1,000 Corpses (which was flawed but fun), this film follows the Firefly family as they try to escape the law. I actually found myself slowly growing bored while watching this film, and found it to be gratuitous for gratuity's sake. The acting is pretty bad.… Continue reading The Devil’s Rejects (2005) Film Review | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 59

House of 1000 Corpses (2003) | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 56

This was my first Rob Zombie film, and I can't say I was impressed.

They Stop at Captain Spaulding's (Sid Haig) Fried Chicken and Gasoline and learn about… Continue reading House of 1000 Corpses (2003) | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 56

An American Werewolf in London (1981) Film Review | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 51

John Landis' classic horror/comedy still holds up today, especially the incredible makeup and practical effects. Is this movie overhyped? In my opinion, yes. It's still a fun romp, though. Starring David Naughton, Jenny Agutter, and Griffin Dunne, the story follows two American students David and Jack (Naughton and Dunne, repsectively), who are backpacking across England.… Continue reading An American Werewolf in London (1981) Film Review | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 51

Goodnight Mommy (2014) Film Review | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 49

Goodnight Mommy is a genuinely unnerving, suspenseful, original horror/thriller that I highly recommend to anyone who is a fan of either genre. The story follows two twin boys Lukas and Elias (Lukas and Elias Schwarz), whose mother (Susanne Wuest) has just returned home from having facial reconstruction surgery. The boys start to wonder if this… Continue reading Goodnight Mommy (2014) Film Review | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 49

Child’s Play 2 (1990) | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 48

The sequel to the classic Child's Play is a fun, humorous, dark treat. It may not tread new ground, but it sure is one hell of a ride. Picking up after the ending of the first film, Andy (Alex Vincent) has been placed in foster care and his mother has been sent to a mental… Continue reading Child’s Play 2 (1990) | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 48

Regression (2015) Film Review | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 44

Regression was an under the radar horror film that was in limited release and got a critical drubbing. I went in with low expectations, and I found the film to personally be better than what the reviews indicated. Regression tells the story of a detective named Bruce Kenner (Ethan Hawke), who is assigned to the… Continue reading Regression (2015) Film Review | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 44

Continuing on with my Frank Darabont/ Stephen King book to film adaptation kick, I watched The Mist, and thoroughly enjoyed my time with the film.

Phantasm (1979) Film Review | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 30

I had heard great things about Phantasm, and know it has had an impact on pop culture today. Sadly, I was left underwhelmed. The story centers on a group of boys who have to fight against the Tall Man (Angus Scrimm), a grave robber with an arsenal of badass, lethal weapons. Did I mention he's… Continue reading Phantasm (1979) Film Review | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 30

I went into this film with no expectations, and I ended up enjoying my time with it. Is it a perfect film? Definitely not, but it's a fun, thought-provoking watch.

The Descent (2005) Film Review | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 26

I had heard nothing but amazing things about this film, so I went in with fairly high expectations. I'm pleased to say that The Descent lived up to the hype and I enjoyed my experience with this bloody, brutal treat of a horror film. The Descent follows a group of six friends, who go an… Continue reading The Descent (2005) Film Review | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 26
