I don’t scare easily. After the first thousand or so horror movies, you build up a tolerance. But I do have my thumbscrews like everybody else, and H.P. Lovecraft, numbers stations and MKUltra, all three prominent elements in Banshee Chapter, is a pretty goddamn potent combination. Not only scares me….it scares me every single time … Continue reading Streaming Now: Banshee Chapter
While I do have a halfassed system for checking reviews–there are too many great horror films out now to waste my time on yet another hack-hack flick about some rando motiveless superhuman serial killer consecutively taking out a pool of boring 30 year old teenagers whose sole purpose is to be slasher chum. I just … Continue reading From the Voices in my Head: Nobody’s Hacked the Reviews, Dumbass
Here we go again with the inconsistent posting. But this time I have a note from my doctor. The good news is that I got both Moderna shots–and before anybody thinks we jumped the line, the tiny crackerbox of a hospital in our skidmark of a town (population: 183…and yes, I find that terrifying) is … Continue reading Behold, I am Fio–Vaccinated and Alive (Mostly)
As I’ve mentioned before, I have a…”condition”. I don’t like to say what it is because I have this superstitious belief that if I do, I will somehow empower it…which isn’t as ridiculous as it sounds: autoimmune assholes–which is the technical name for autoimmunity, because that’s what they are, biological assholes–are very susceptible to stress … Continue reading Not Dead Enough to Quit…I think
Recently, I read a review on Ravenous that pissed me off so badly, I wanted to hunt down the reviewer so I could bite him. Hard. Not because he didn’t like the movie–film reviews are, by their very nature, subjective–but because he got every single thing that was possible to get wrong…wrong. It could be … Continue reading Ravenous (1999), Part II: Wendigos, Wétikos and the Colorado Cannibal
Unfortunately, most Wendigos aren’t literally cannibalistic…and no, that’s not a typo. Don’t get me wrong; I am hardly a defender of people-eaters…but even the hungriest Wendigo can only consume so many humans–the Wètikos have been known to consume entire nations.
SPOILERS! Wall to wall, A-Z, giving away everything, so…go watch the movie first I’ve finally gotten into the habit of watching a movie and then re-watching it with the director’s commentary on and I can’t believe it took me this long to do so. After I’ve finished a movie, I go back, turn on the … Continue reading The Devil’s Candy, Part II: Faustian Reckoning
