Drag Me To Hell

Read the disclosure policy for more info* Nearly two decades since his last installment of Evil Dead flair (the cult classic Army of Darkness), Sam Raimi dropped his new comic book movie reputation to return to his roots. Drag Me To Hell is an homage to the past, but also a regeneration: proof that…

Quick crit and review of Yorgos Lanthimos' dark comedy "The Lobster" |

#19: Ginger Snaps

If you liked Jennifer’s Body, you’re going to get a kick out of this one. And even if you didn’t, my money’s still on the werewolf. Ginger Snaps Our little girl’s a young woman now. It’s honestly surprising to me that I haven’t covered a werewolf movie yet in this HorrorThon, because they are some…
