• Table 19 (2017) – Available on Amazon & VUDU

      By Melissa Antoinette Garza   If there is one type of movie that I adore, it’s when a band of misfits unify and find out things about themselves that they didn’t know.  LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE (2006), WE ARE THE MILLERS (2013), SUICIDE SQUAD (2016) and most recently THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE (2017) are all […]

  • It Comes at Night (2017) – HORROR FILM REVIEW – IN THEATERS NOW

    By Melissa Antoinette Garza   Tonight, my husband and I were supposed to go see RIFFTRAX Shorts as one of their Fathom events were being aired live in some theaters.  The cinema we typically go to wasn’t showing it so we had to make an adjustment.  We went to see IT COMES AT NIGHT (2017) […]

  • The Incredible Hulk: The Psychic (1980) – Marvel SUPERHERO TV SHOW REVIEW

    By Geno McGahee I like psychics, except for those fake ones. I know that some of you think all psychics are fake, but Uri Geller was the real deal. I know that the so-called Amazing Randi tried to debunk him, but I’ve got it from a reliable source that Geller shoved a spoon up his […]

  • The Principal (1987) – Movie Review – on Amazon

      By Melissa Antoinette Garza   THE PRINCIPAL (1987) is another comfort film or me.  For years, I thought it was a quality rip-off of LEAN ON ME, but shockingly the latter came out two years after.  THE PRINCIPAL is more of an action than a drama. The lead character Rick Latimer (Jim Belushi) wields […]

  • Lean on Me (1989) – Movie Review (on Amazon)

      By Melissa Antoinette Garza   LEAN ON ME (1989) is like comfort food for me.  If I’m upset, down, suffering from insomnia or just in need of a feel-good film, Principal Joe Clark (Morgan Freeman) always puts a smile on my face. As there may be some too young to remember this classic, go […]

  • The Incredible Hulk: The Lottery (1980) – Marvel SUPERHERO TV SHOW REVIEW

    By Geno McGahee For the first time, that I can remember at least, David Banner (Bill Bixby) is offered a drink. Initially, he declines, but then, he surprisingly has a few glasses of wine. I would think that being the Hulk would making drinking alcohol too risky. Get drunk, fuck shit up…you know the score. […]


    By Melissa Antoinette Garza   Congratulations DON’T BREATHE (2016), you are no longer the movie that pisses me off the most.  That honor goes to a 1984 award-winning TV movie starring Ted Danson and Glenn Close.  It’s a film called SOMETHING ABOUT AMELIA and it’s a fictionalized account about a father molesting his daughter. Full […]

  • The Incredible Hulk: Falling Angels (1980) – Marvel SUPERHERO TV SHOW REVIEW

    By Geno McGahee It’s sad that David Banner (Bill Bixby) can’t have kids. He is so helpful and loves children, but he is so afraid of Hulking up during sex that he will not risk it. That is a testament to his love of humanity that he will not risk the life of a woman […]

  • The Hand that Rocks the Cradle (1992) POSSIBLE MANDELA EFFECT – Movie Review

      By Melissa Antoinette Garza   As a child, I loved the movie THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE (1992).  I still love movies of this genre.  SINGLE WHITE FEMALE (1992), OBSESSED (2009), THE BOY NEXT DOOR (2015), PLAY MISTY FOR ME (1971) are just a few of the films that I own and love. […]

  • Tracy Morgan: Staying Alive (2017) Free on Netflix

      By Melissa Antoinette Garza   I always liked Tracy Morgan.  I loved him on Saturday Night Live.  He was on it when it was actually funny.  He was the best part of 30 ROCK and was hilarious in the comedy FIRST SUNDAY (2008), the underrated COP OUT (2010) and most recently FIST FIGHT (2017). […]


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 […]


Rounders (1998) – Casino Thriller Movie Review

By Geno McGahee In 1998, two of Hollywood’s brightest stars would team up in the action/thriller “ROUNDERS.” Matt Damon would play the role of Mike, a talented poker player that would give up the game after a big loss. His friend, Worm, played by Ed Norton, would relight the fire and bring him back to […]

The Goodbye Girl (1977) – Classic Movie Review & Dreyfuss Initiative

By Melissa Antoinette Garza   As a writer, there are certain films that I watch and walk away saying, “I wish I wrote that.”  12 ANGRY MEN (1957), PSYCHO (1960), and HAROLD AND MAUDE (1971) all had that impact on me.  When I bought THE GOODBYE GIRL (1977), I really didn’t expect anything to hit […]



  By Melissa Antoinette Garza   Nothing draws me in more than when a film’s antagonist is an obsessive nut-job.  They’re a guilty pleasure that are without question, chick-flicks.  I’m grateful to my husband for agreeing to take me as I really wanted to see this one. First, I like Katherine Heigl.  I think she’s […]


Arrival (2016) Sci-Fi Movie Review

It’s about time that a film emerged from the shadows which manages to relight the flame for the rather sparked out alien/UFO sci-fi genre. ARRIVAL (2016) brings us an entirely different format and a close encounter that will stick with the audience for years to come, if not for fear then for intrigue. When we […]


When the Bough Breaks (2016) – Suspense Movie Review

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza   It’s a Sunday and Steve’s downstairs watching some YOUTUBE shows where best friends play videogames and I’m up here watching some big-screen, Lifetime style, chick-flick thrillers. The first on the list was WHEN THE BOUGH BREAKS (2016).  This is actually a lot more terrifying because, come to find out, […]



By Melissa Antoinette Garza   I enjoy Kate Winslet as an actress.  Despite disliking the wildly popular TITANIC (1997), I recognize her amazing performance.  In productions like, THE HOLIDAY (2006), THE LIFE OF DAVID GALE (2003) and the phenomenal ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND (2004), Winslet revealed her versatility and overall talent as an […]

perfect sisters


  By Melissa Antoinette Garza Is premeditated murder ever justified? Director Stan M Brooks and writer Fab Filippo pose that question in PERFECT SISTERS (2014).  The film tells the true story of two teens who committed matricide in Canada on January 18, 2003.  It’s an adaptation of Bob Mitchell’s book, THE CLASS PROJECT: HOW TO KILL […]


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 […]


UNDER THE SPOTLIGHT – Exorcising Demons, Raising Scarecrows & More – Horror Filmmaker Geno McGahee Speaks

By Chris Summerfield It is time we went, ‘Under the spotlight,’ once again here on scared stiff, with the legendary indie horror, writer, director and producer, Geno McGahee. Welcome back Geno. CS: So I must start by asking how did the, EXORCISM OF THE 7TH DEMON, work out, as am aware it was a movie […]


God’s Club (2015) -Religious Movie Review – Free on Netflix

By Melissa Antoinette Garza   The past few years have been pretty crazy. I began watching religious films, like GOD’S NOT DEAD (2014) for entertainment value alone.  I wasn’t really a religious person and bounced into and out of Christianity.  It’s only very recently that I felt a solid relationship with God. Don’t get me […]


Smurfs: The Lost Village (2017) – New Release Family Film Review

  By Melissa Antoinette Garza I was never as opposed to THE SMURFS (2011) or THE SMURFS 2 (2013) as most people.  Some of my favorite online critics and podcast hosts voiced how much they loathed the films, but I enjoyed them, for what they were.  I can’t speak for the later ALVIN and THE […]
