Beauty and the Beast (2017) – A Conservative’s Film Review

By Melissa Antoinette Garza  I haven’t seen the Disney cartoon adaptation in quite a while, but since some of my favorite people in the world were going to see the new film, I decided to go with.  I knew there was some hubbub about the inclusion of a gay character, so I was curious about […]

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 […]

Grotesque (1988) Horror Movie Review – FREE FILM INCLUDED

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza   My husband wants me to give this flick a 10 out of 10.  He’s overreaching quite a bit, but it was certainly a film worth watching. GROTESQUE is a fun confused mess with an odd premise and an even odder implementation.  The performances seem as though they should come […]

Blair Witch (2016) – Found Footage HORROR MOVIE REVIEW

By Geno McGahee Before I had the opportunity to view this follow up to the 1999 cult hit, I read a lot of people reviewing it without seeing it. They went in knowing that they were going to hate it, and they were quick to point out that the first one sucked. I strongly disagree. […]

Trolls (2016) DreamWorks Family Film Review

By Melissa Antoinette Garza I didn’t expect to like the movie TROLLS (2016).  I knew very little about it.  I didn’t even know who released it. If my niece didn’t ask me to go see it, I probably would’ve never watched the film.  That said, I’m glad she wanted to go. The animated movie begins […]

C.H.U.D. (1984) – Arrow Video Releases Classic Monster Movie – HORROR MOVIE REVIEW

By Kevin Scott I grew up in the golden age of the video store. If you weren’t there, it’s just absolutely impossible to describe to adequately do it justice. This was before Blockbuster, where every entrepreneurial baby boomer hung their shingle out in front of any commercial space available in an attempt to cash in […]

Phantasm: Ravager (2016) – TALL MAN HORROR MOVIE REVIEW

By Geno McGahee I am a huge fan of the PHANTASM series. In 1979, it all began and was unique and creepy. The sight of the Tall Man (Angus Scrimm) lifting the coffin and throwing it into the hearse by himself with ease was unsettling and it set the tone for the rest of the […]
