Listen to us discuss our favorite and least favorite movies from 2013 on The Obsessive Viewer Podcast I watched a few movies in 2013. 320 to be exact! Yeah! I’m happy with that. (Matt is a dick for beating me by 5!). It was a really good movie-watching year for me. This blog and podcast that Matt, Mike and I […]

My friends and I have been dedicating the month of October to the horror genre and calling it Shocktober for several years now. I started this blog in February and from the start I was excited about sharing my Shocktober experience with anyone and everyone. I have been saying for a while that this year has to make up for […]
Since 2009’s Trick R Treat, horror audiences have been treated to a resurgence of anthology movies. V/H/S and it’s superior sequel were successful movies, and a breath of fresh air from the Paranormal Activity movies dominating theaters every year. The anthology format serves horror well. Where several horror movies struggle to pack 90 minutes with scares, segments in a horror […]

OBSESSIVE NOTE: Mike is the biggest Horror movie fan I know. His approach to Shocktober this year is more laid back than it has been in years passed. It should be, considering he’s getting married next weekend. Despite his extremely busy schedule, he has agreed to share his Shocktober 2013 experience with all of us. Here is the first installment […]
OBSESSIVE NOTE: In honor of Shocktober here on the blog, I asked my friends and podcast co-hosts to write about their experiences with this sacred tradition.

There’s something surprisingly endearing about watching the beautiful Brit Marling take a bite out of a half-eaten apple she just pulled out of the trash.

I’m not sure I’ve ever really seen a movie like The East; which I mean in the most complimentary of ways.
My friends Mike and Tiny saw Star Trek Into Darkness last weekend and couldn’t stop raving about it. Mike is a tough critic, especially when it comes to big tent-pole movies. Tiny and I usually see eye to eye on most movies. So after hearing their praise, I had to see the movie for myself. Before I bought my ticket, […]
