The Month in Movies: January 2014

Total Viewings: 19 First Viewings: 12 Theater Viewings: 3 So January in 2014 wasn’t nearly as productive as last year in terms of movies watched. To be fair, however, last January was one of the best months I’ve ever had for movie watching; surpassing many a Shocktober, even. I’m proud of my numbers this month, though. I had a respectable […]

The Month in Movies: December 2013

I closed out 2013 with a December that consisted of 20 viewings. Of those 20 viewings, only 8 were “first viewings” and 3 were trips to the theater. It was a pretty mellow way to close out the year. It was actually the opposite of 2012’s stats, where I watched any and every thing that I could. Stay tuned to […]

Remake Review: A Nightmare on Elm Street

Adaptations & Remakes is an ongoing feature where I take a movie or a book and compare it to its remake and/or adaptation. Happy Halloween, everyone! If you’ve been checking on the blog throughout the day, you’ll know that earlier in the day, Tiny applied his newfound appreciation for the Halloween franchise to compare Carpenter’s vision with Zombie’s depiction. Then […]

4 Days of Blood: Part IV – Ghoulish Netflix Instant Recommendations

Seeing as Halloween is now upon us and I’ve committed myself to writing four “Days of Blood” posts, I figured I would devote the fourth and final post to some of the better (and more recent) horror and horror-adjacent titles available to stream on Netflix. Hopefully it will make up for the way I’ve been neglecting my Streaming Saturday recommendations […]

Every now and then a horror movie comes along that will examine the nature of the genre in a fun, inventive way. These movies oftentimes provide a stark look at the genre they lampoon with love.

I am really late with this but, alas, here is my breakdown of the movies I watched in September. I had 11 viewings last month and was fully prepared to go on the defensive. I was going to talk about how the TV season really destroyed my chance of watching many movies, not to mention the additional time I put […]
