Doctor Sleep

Was I slightly worried about the big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep? Look, I’m always gonna worry about any King adaptation, because his work is so heavily weighted in character development that it’s almost never done right due to time constraints — BUT! I whole-heartedly love every single thing Director Mike Flanagan has

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. The teens who are left have been split into two

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

Midsommar

Midsommar, aka, I took a trip to a remote Swedish village with my shitty boyfriend and his self-centered friends and all I got was a bad mushroom trip and this lousy flower crown. JK I actually LOVED this movie! Ari Aster’s follow-up to Hereditary is everything I want in a fucked-up, fantastical, creepy cult horror film —

Crypticon 2019: Dee Wallace Interview

A few weeks ago at Crypticon, I had the extreme pleasure of interviewing iconic actress Dee Wallace, star of SO many films including E.T., Cujo, The Howling, The Frighteners, Critters, and several Rob Zombie-directed films including the upcoming 3 From Hell. Take a listen to it here; I’ve transcribed the first part before the Q&A

All Killer, No Filler: Horror Curation Panel at Emerald City Comicon

I got together with a bunch of friends to talk about streaming horror movies, horror communities, and a ton of other stuff related to splatter at Emerald City Comicon this past weekend! The panel was sponsored by Shudder, and we had a blast hanging out and engaging with our audience. You can watch the whole

The Narrow Caves

I haven’t listened to that many narrative podcasts, but I kept seeing ads for The Narrow Caves, written by Director S. Craig Zahler (Bone Tomahawk & Brawl in Cell Block 99) brought to you by FANGORIA which promised an “ear-movie” experience, so I decided to give a try. The Narrow Caves starts out in 1923,

Fantastic Fest 2018 Wrap-Up

This year marked my first time at Fantastic Fest, which I THOROUGHLY enjoyed! Sitting in a dark theater with so many like-minded genre fans was an amazing experience, and though I can’t really afford to make it happen every year, I’ll definitely be back. Here’s a quick rundown of all the feature films I saw
