AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING (2017) – horror movie review

By Melissa Antoinette Garza   AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING (2017) was filmed a few years back and has been repeatedly shelved since.  Cursed with delays and reshoots that spanned nearly 5 years, the lore behind the film was far more interesting than the production itself. When it was finally released last month, I couldn’t wait to […]


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 […]

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 […]


Siren (2016) – Horror Movie Review (FOR RENT ON AMAZON and REDBOX)

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza Truth be known, I wasn’t particularly impressed with the V/H/S trilogy.  I watched each of the films once and if I recall correctly, the last two were superior to the first.  When I saw the trailer for SIREN, it didn’t resonate that this was a full-length production of a tale […]


Ouija: Origin of Evil – Available for rent on Amazon

By Melissa Antoinette Garza   I was not a fan of the predecessor to this film.  I love movies about Ouija boards, but it failed to scare.  It was the typical horror film that followed teenagers contacting the other side.  It just didn’t do it well. Thankfully, OUIJA: ORIGIN OF EVIL took some pointers from […]


Blair Witch (2016) – Found Footage HORROR MOVIE REVIEW

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 […]
