    Jeepers Creepers

    ★★★

    Having not seen this since my younger days, I figured I'd crack out the one-two punch of the dual pack, which also includes the sequel and give it a whirl before I remember how terrible a person the director is.

    Jeepers Creepers has some solid Ideas and fun scenes that are dragged down by whiny characters, who run around three central locations getting stuck in a jumbled plot. Said plot sees a brother-sister duo heading home for some reason or…

    The Deadly Spawn

    ★★★½

    Believe it or not, there are times that even I think my reviews of very low budget, or backyard budget movies are a bit too harsh. This usually happens a few months after I have watched a dollar bin DVD collection of zombie films and the stank has worn off. I tell myself that they did the best with their budget and making horror movies is harder than it looks etc... Then I watch movies like The Deadly Spawn, and…

    Annabelle Comes Home

    ★★½

    I am kind of shocked that I didn't completely dislike this movie. The Annabelle series, and the other spin-offs from The Conjuring have pretty much been losing scenarios for me. All of them interchangeable versions of themselves, meant to grab on to the most amount of viewers by jump scaring them into non-existence. While Annabelle Comes Home is still guilty of all that, I found myself enjoying it a lot more.

    I won't discount brainwashing as a reason for why…

    ★★★★

    Having enjoyed Bone Tomahawk, S. Craig Zahler's other film which I had seen before this, I was looking forward to seeing what this one has to offer. What I got was a very slow burn thriller that has some stand out scenes that put other examples of movie violence to shame.

    One of the best parts of Brawl in Cell Block 99 is Vince Vaughn's performance. I didn't think I would ever say that about the man, although I don't…

  • The Dead Don't Die

    The Dead Don't Die

    ★★★½

    Jim Jarmusch has always been a guy who has stayed outside of my movie periphery. I always seem to forget about him for years until finally sitting down to watch a movie he's made that I am interested in. Which for me is weird since the movies I remember most from him include vampires and an urban samurai. Still, he has a way of entertaining me, while never really sticking with me in the end. Which may be a good…
