I'm finally back after an unplanned month hiatus and with a doozy of a film to recommend.
ABCs of Death certainly held my attention and is not for the faint of heart or under 18.

Film makers were assigned a letter to tell a short story about death. Some were intriguing,...

Starry Eyes begs the question, what are you willing to do to be largely successful?

To give you fair warning, the film starts out pretty slowly while they build the characters and develop the desperation.

All around the horror community there is the babadook buzz. I was excited to watch this film because the hype surrounding it was intense with statements like:

Banshee Chapter is a three part short series. The episodes are pretty good and brief so I watched them all in one sitting.

Oculus showed up this week on Netflix.

American Horror Story: Coven is now on Netflix.
Some might say I'm a little late in the game on this one but I don't have cable so I usually miss the boat. 
This should explain why most of these posts are Netflix recommendations.

I have watched season one and two previo...

Odd Thomas popped up on my Netflix suggestions and for weeks, it went ignored. Maybe it was the name Odd Thomas? Maybe it was the cheesy description? Who knows. But I am so glad that I was finally in the mood to click play. I really love this movie. I am happy to watch...

I saw the previous for this film and was like 'ugh... look at that, another terrorized family.' I didn't watch this film until Halloween this year. My local radio station was doing a Halloween special on spooky stories. A women called in who happened to be the Granddau...

I guess I should explain myself and my fondness for all things society would deem spooky.

As a kid my favorite things were Beetlejuice, Ghostbusters and Monsters. My Grandfather loved Halloween and the Universal monsters. I would sit on his lap and watch the black and w...
