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 […]

The Whole Truth (2016) – AVAILABLE ON AMAZON

By Melissa Antoinette Garza   How did this film sneak under the radar?  I’m a Keanu Reeves fan.  I enjoy Renee Zellweger’s body of work in dramatic roles.  When I was younger, I adored Jim Belushi.  He was the principal, man!  That combined with my adoration for court room dramas would have had me in […]

Get Out (2017)  A CONSERVATIVE’S FILM REVIEW

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, […]

Necromancy (1972) – FREE SPECIAL EDITION FULL FILM INCLUDED IN REVIEW

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 […]

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 […]

SPLIT (2017) – Suspense Movie Review – IN THEATERS NOW

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza   I laughed when I saw the trailer for this film.  I never really looked beyond that.  I was expecting it to be the type of movie that’s so bad, it’s good.  I mean, it was about a guy who had a bunch of split personalities kidnapping three girls – […]

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 […]

The Good Neighbor (2016) – Movie Review – Film Available on Netflix

By Melissa Antoinette Garza   There are some shared common decencies that most human beings hold dear, simply because they have a conscience. That internal voice that speaks up when something is wrong or immoral is a significant aspect that makes the world a more peaceful and unified place.  At times, it seems that voice […]

Beyond the Gates (2016) – 80s Horror Throwback – Movie Review

By Melissa Antoinette Garza BEYOND THE GATES (2016) is an IFC Midnight film that is currently available for rental on Amazon’s streaming service. Typically, IFC does well with the films they produce.  I saw the trailer for this movie and was immediately taken in.  It reminded me of a 1980s horror short from the film […]

The Secret Village (2013) – Horror Film Review – Available for rent on Amazon

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza   This is one of those times, I hadn’t heard of the film prior to watching it.  I love movies about cults so this seemed right up my alley.  I watched the trailer and recognized some of the actors.  The movie was shot in MA and I live there so […]

IMPERIUM (2016) – Movie Review – REDBOX RENTAL – TRAILER INCLUDED

By Melissa Antoinette Garza   I was never a HARRY POTTER fan.  I tried to read the books and even attempted to watch a few of the movies, but it wasn’t my cup of tea.  I prefer finer films about schools of magic, like THE WORST WITCH (1986).  Tim Curry is amazing in it. Anyways, […]

Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) – Horror Sci-Fi Review on Hulu – TRAILER INCLUDED

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza   I am a fan of most incarnations, reboots, and homages to INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS.  I even enjoy the often overlooked 1993 film BODY SNATCHERS and critically panned THE INVASION (2007).  I hadn’t seen the original 1956 movie until I was in my late teens, but the 1978 […]
