One of the highlights of this fucked up timeline (the WORST timeline to be in) is that the Museum of Pop Culture reached out to me to ask if I would be interested in choosing a horror film that should be added to their “100 Horror Films to See Before You Die” list and also

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 —

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
