The Final Girls Review

If I tell you this movie is like Scream filtered through the world of Last Action Hero, I will have given you the premise of this movie, but will have told you nothing about its heart. This movie is a parody of the classic 80s slasher genre, but, as strange as it may sound, a… Continue reading The Final Girls Review

Halloween: Resurrection Review

This is without a doubt the laziest of all the Halloween movies. Even part three, as misguided as it was, at least tried to be creative. Halloween: Resurrection can’t be bothered with the formalities of either the franchise it represents or decent storytelling in general. For the past half dozen or so flicks, Michael Myers… Continue reading Halloween: Resurrection Review

Halloween H20 Review

With a title like ‘Halloween H20’ featuring a mass murderer stalking a college campus I wish I could say this movie was about Michael Myers stalking the campus of South Central Louisiana State University doing battle with Bobby Boucher (Adam Sandler) with Bobby’s mom (Kathy Bates) taking over the Donald Pleasance role of reminding us… Continue reading Halloween H20 Review

Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers Review

I am reviewing the director’s cut here, which is the first time I have seen it---I would like to go back and see the original theatrical now for comparison’s sake, but I’ll save that for a later review. This is the first Halloween movie I was old enough to see as a kid, and being… Continue reading Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers Review

Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers Review

The Halloween franchise, compared to Freddy and Jason’s series, is probably the most uneven of all the slasher series. Nothing will ever top the awful unconnected mess of Halloween III, which is why part four was such a welcome return to form, but this entry, while still at least a somewhat competent entry in the… Continue reading Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers Review

Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers Review

Halloween 4 is the movie that brought the Halloween franchise into the same slasher-fest league as the movies that had imitated it. Whether or not that’s a good thing depends on how big a fan you are of these kinds of flicks. John Carpenter had big Twilight Zone like ideas for the series, of which… Continue reading Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers Review

Halloween 3: Season of the Witch Review

Only John Carpenter knows what he was thinking when he agreed to let Tommy Lee Wallace helm this strange non-sequel (which he both wrote and directed) which is the third entry into his iconic Halloween series. The plot, in as much of a nutshell as I can come up with is this: Michael Myers was… Continue reading Halloween 3: Season of the Witch Review

Black Mass Review

What an unnerving film—and just in time for Halloween too. ‘Black Mass’ is an interesting exercise in genre bending/blending. There are really two films playing simultaneously. The first is the historical account of real life gangster James “Whitey” Bulger—a sociopathic killer who used his political connections to reign over South Boston (Southie) for several decades.… Continue reading Black Mass Review

Freddy vs. Jason Review

Notorious dream slayer Freddy Krueger has been dormant for years now in the little neighborhood of Elm Street. Business just ain’t what it used to be as teenagers just don’t really seem that afraid anymore, which, as the story goes greatly reduces his powers. Not one to take this lying down, he decides to lure… Continue reading Freddy vs. Jason Review
