  • Halloween III: Season of the Witch 1982

    ★★★★ Watched 21 Oct, 2014

    An insane, goofy plot that is a lot of fun and loads better than watching another movie about Michael Myers chasing people with diminishing quality. Would have loved for Halloween to have become a Holiday anthology series...

  • Annabelle 2014

    ★½ Watched 18 Oct, 2014

    Very much a retread of all the James Wan productions of the last few years, and the least effective. The plot and (primarily jump) scares are repetitive and boring, with variations on the same scene playing out half a dozen times of so in a row. Filled with homage(re: rips off) to rosemary's baby, child's play and (possibly)ghostbusters 2. That being said, there is one single well directed murder near the beginning of the film that kicks off the plot which is shot well and is really effective. It's pretty much downhill from there.

  • The Uninvited 1944

    ★★★★ Watched 17 Oct, 2014

    Supposedly the first big hollywood production to take a ghost story seriously. The leads are all entertaining and it seems like a notable precurser to the horror/comedy genre with a decent amount of lighthearted and fun scenes laced amongst the atmospheric and moody stuff...they also use a pre-ouija board ouija board, perhaps inventing a scare that is still recycled to this day....

  • Transformers: The Movie 1986

    ★★½ Watched 23 Jun, 2014 1

    One full star is for the soundtrack, which is perfection. If nothing else comes out of my watching this, there will be tracks from the album on my ipod by dawn....
