The Invisible Man (2020) Review

This might be one of the best movies of 2020. I purchased this when it was available on-demand. It was a whole vibe and a scary one at that. Listen, Leigh Whannell knows how to make some horror. Do you understand me? This man has written for two of my beloved franchises; SaW and Insidious.…

Nobody Sleeps In The Woods Tonight (2020) Review

If you're a fan of movies like Friday the 13th and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, then this is the perfect film for you. A group of teens are sent to a camp where they aren't allowed to use any technology. Its is a timely subject with interesting commentary about being addicted to mobile devices. Couple that…

Spell (2020) Review

This film was corny but had redeeming qualities. It centered around Marquis (Omari Hardwick), who is a former resident of rural Appalachia. He planned a trip there with his wife and kids but something bad happened. Next thing you know, he was being held captive by a woman named Eloise (Loretta Divine). She delivered a…

Malignant (2021) Review

I have no idea what James Wan was smoking, but he needs to share. This is by far one of the worst projects I've seen from him. Malignant is fuckin' ridiculous bro! Do not be fooled by the marketing, this is a dark comedy masquerading as a slasher. For a while I was unsure what…

Ernest Scared Stupid (1991) Review

Before I found out who Jim Carrey was, Jim Varney was one of the funniest guys on TV. Every weekend I saw a movie titled under his comedic moniker, Ernest. However, there is one film that stood out from all the rest and that is Ernest Scared Stupid. Released in October 1991, it is about…

Wrong Turn (2021) Review

Does the thumbnail of this post look stupid? Well that coincides with the film. Wrong Turn is not scary at all and a huge departure from the franchise. I don't know what they were trying to do but it failed miserably. The formula was simple, a group of teenage party goers depart from a main…

The Story Monster Podcast – Episode 12: Chris Margetis of The Manson Bros Midnight Zombie Massacre

Do you like wrestling? I sure as hell do. However, there is one thing I love just as much, horror movies. So when I tell you this is the perfect love-child of the two, believe me. This movie is fuckin' hilarious! The Manson Brothers Midnight Zombie Massacre is over-the-top (pun intended) and insanely entertaining. I…

The Story Monster Podcast – Episode 10, Candyman (2021) Review

My expectations were low going to the theater. I thought to myself, even if this is trash, we still have the original. Candyman is a contrived mess of a movie that did too much in too little time. The story was all over the place and relied heavily on social justice themes. It was a…

Cruella (2021) Review

This is a movie for Millennials not kids. Most children who are fifteen or younger probably don't know who the hell Cruella de Vil is, let alone 101 Dalmatians. Disney must be getting desperate. However, this was a very entertaining movie. It has some super dark themes and was violent at times. As I said…

The Story Monster Podcast – Episode 07, The Suicide Squad (2021) Review feat. PHILmoore

This movie was one hell of a ride and not in a good way. I don't know what the writers and James Gunn are smoking, but I need them to stop....and share. The Suicide Squad is a diet reboot of its predecessor from 2016. Oh how I tried to forget that one. Although the story…
