Elvira, Mistress of the Dark (1988)

Reviewed by Melissa Antoinette Garza “There‘s nothing wrong with G rated movies as long as there‘s lots of sex and violence.” – Elvira (Cassandra Peterson) When I was in elementary school, some girls idolized She-Ra, some lived for Rainbow Brite. The young intellectuals of the bunch may have even thrown Nancy Reagan‘s name around as […]


Five Reasons Why Annabelle: Creation Failed to Scare Audiences

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza   I went to the cinemas yesterday to see ANNABELLE: CREATION (2017) with the hubby and sadly, both of us were quite disappointed.  I didn’t have great expectations for it, but still I left the theater feeling ripped off. Now, it wasn’t as bad as LIGHTS OUT (2016), but I […]


The Eternal Jew (1940) – A Nazi Propaganda Film (Subtitled)

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza   Other than seeing clips of TRIUMPH OF THE WILL (1934) in documentaries, I never watched a Nazi propaganda film.  I knew Nazis were horrible, I knew Hitler was the devil incarnate and I knew about the horrors of the Holocaust.  So, I never saw a reason to watch a […]


Ritual (2013) –  Horror Movie Review – Available on Amazon

By Melissa Antoinette Garza   First and foremost, can we please stop calling movies, books and episodes of TV shows any of the above; RITUAL, A RITUAL or THE RITUAL.  There’s like a billion of them!   The one that I’m reviewing was distributed and produced by AFTER DARK in 2013.

Sinister 2 (2015) Horror Film Review-REDBOX RENTAL – AMAZON PURCHASE

By Melissa Antoinette Garza   I wanted to see SINISTER 2 (2015) for quite a while.  Unfortunately, neither my brother Geno nor my husband Steve were fans of the original.   Since I watch so many horror movies with them, I try to watch films of a different genre when I’m alone. They just put it […]


The Legend of Hell House (1973) – Horror Movie Review

Reviewed by Melissa Garza   “I was the only one to make it out of here alive and sane in 1953, and I will be the only one to make it out of here alive and sane this time.” – Benjamin (Roddy McDowall) Lionel Barrett (Clive Revill), a very arrogant physicist is hired to find […]



By Melissa Antoinette Garza   One of my favorite films of all time is THE STEPFORD WIVES (1975).  I adored the film since childhood.  It outlined the fear of turning the clock back to when women were subservient to men.  Katharine Ross brilliantly portrayed the lead and regardless of how many times I watch it, […]



By Melissa Antoinette Garza   I love 1970s horror movies.  They have a certain look, feel, tone and rawness to it that modern movies rarely capture.  As I was perusing the new Amazon Prime films, I came across NECROMANCY (1972).  It was a movie I had never seen and it starred one of my favorite […]


The Hills Have Eyes (1977) – Wes Craven’s Classic

  Reviewed by Melissa Antoinette Garza I hadn’t seen the original THE HILLS HAVE EYES since I was a child.  Even then, it was most likely an edited version on regular TV.  Back in the 80s, Saturday afternoons were filled with scary shows like TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE and THE MONSTERS and horror films hosted […]

The Darkness (2016) Kevin Bacon Supernatural Thriller – Film Review

    By Melissa Antoinette Garza   Kevin Bacon is one of the most versatile actors out there.  He gave an overall run-of-the-mill mystery STIR OF ECHOES (1999) credibility and entertainment value, he made one cringe in disgust at his character in SLEEPERS (1996), he showed us the mind of one man hell-bent on revenge […]

sarah hyland


By Melissa Antoinette Garza   I like Sarah Hyland.  I’m a fan of the sitcom MODERN FAMILY and her contributions to the show are endless. I’m also one who has read the works of Anton Szandor LaVey in depth.  When I was much younger, my mother repeatedly threw out the SATANIC BIBLE, which I would […]


The Conjuring 2 (2016) – Horror Movie Review

By Melissa Antoinette Garza   When I heard that the sequel to the huge hit THE CONJURING (2013) was going to be about the Enfield, London haunting that occurred in 1977.  I found this case very interesting for several reasons.  Many of the events were unexplainable.  There were a great number of witnesses.  Certain things […]
