Riot Girls

YASSSSSSSSSSS! Jovanka Vuckovic’s feature debut, Riot Girls, is everything I wanted it to be.  Set in an alternate 1995, this post-apocalyptic queer horror romance takes place in the fictional town of Potter’s Bluff, in which a mysterious “rotting disease” has taken out all the adults.

It Chapter Two

While I had a great time watching It (Chapter One? I guess?) and reveling in its sweet, sweet 80s nostalgia, It Chapter Two did not fill me with the same splattery glee. Two jumps forward 27 years to 2015 to show us The Losers as adults, all of whom have no memory of their time growing up in Derry, or of

Horror Collection A to Z: Audition

More from my I Love Splatter! A to Z project — where I watch every single one of my horror dvds in alphabetical order. Today I watched Audition, directed by Takashi Miike which not only sent me down a rabbit hole of Miike films; it also kicked off a huge J-Horror obsession. You can watch

Critters: A New Binge

I’m not sure what anyone was expecting from the latest installment in the Critters universe via Shudder, but I actually thought Critters: A New Binge was pretty fun.
