Freddy VS Jason (2003) Macabre Month of Horror #2

‘Freddy VS Jason ‘ is a great idea. Having two of the greatest horror villains of all time, fighting it out in a movie together. This was not the first time horror icons have mixed. Characters such as Frankenstein, Dracula, and the Wolfman have all been in movies together. Freddy vs. Jason led to many possibilities…

Haunted by the Theremin from Midsomer Murders

I love watching Midsomer Murders, but I really need to stop watching it right before bed. I find even after I turn off the show the theremin music haunts me, playing in my head, following me from room to room. It’s not the blood, gore or the horrifying ways they find to kill off people….

Falling Down (1993) Movie Review Part 1 ~ By Sam

*HEAVY SPOILERS* “Falling Down” is proof that not all Joel Schumacher films suck, mainly just his Batman movies. Falling down is a great movie that I believe should be known as a classic, among the ranks of the “Scarface, “Die Hard”, and other timeless must see movies.

Maximum Overdrive Movie Review ~ By Sam

“Maximum Overdrive” is based off the Stephen King short story “Trucks”. I wonder why this is the movie he was most involved with out of all the others. Stephen King cameo is as a guy who gets insulted by an ATM. This is the only movie which Stephen King actually directed. This also happens to…

Inappropriate Movie Summaries

Sam and I watched one episode of “The Benson Interruption” on Netflix the other day.

The funniest was “Two women visit the bottom of the Grand Canyon; Thelma and Louise“. So, Sam…
