The Windmill (2016) – Horror Movie Review- Free on Netflix

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza It seems like only yesterday that I was perusing the aisles of local video stores hoping to rent horror movies that were worth the watch.  I’d read the back, look at the cover, put it down and pick it back up again before making my decision. Back then, when it […]

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. The film begins when Tom […]

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 […]

DON’T BREATHE (2016) – Horror Movie Review (SPOILERS)

By Melissa Antoinette Garza   I remember seeing the trailer for DON’T BREATHE (2016) in the theater with my husband.  Steve and I couldn’t stop laughing.  With the gruff voice of the blind villain grumbling “Now, you’ll see what I see!” was beyond too much. The film received moderately positive reviews, but I had zero […]

The Most Hated Woman in America (2017) –  Movie Review – Exclusively on Netflix

By Melissa Antoinette Garza   NETFLIX has opted to celebrate Women’s History Month in one of the strangest ways possible.  THE MOST HATED WOMAN IN AMERICA (2017) is a biopic about the life of famous atheist Madalyn Murray O’Hair. It’s quite difficult to even wrap my head around what I’ve just watched.  To write a […]

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 […]

GETOUT

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 – […]
