Halloweentown (1998) Review

Disney had the best direct to television movies in the 90s. Halloweentown was a hit during the holiday, especially during it's release. A movie full of traditional monsters presented in a lighthearted manner. The monsters were whimsical, colorful, and goofy. Marnie, an overoptimistic teenager, discovers she is a witch on Halloween. Her grandmother, Aggie (Debbie…

Leprechaun (1993) Review

This was my childhood! Who gives a damn about a murderous doll? Leprechaun has razor sharp teeth, can kill you with magic, and quick on his feet. I did a review for the reboot/sequel Leprechaun Returns and now I'll be giving my thoughts on the original. Warwick Davis did an exceptional job playing this iconic…

Candyman: Farewell To The Flesh (1995) Review

Enough of the PG stuff, we're back to the R-rated debauchery. There's no better way to celebrate the Halloween spirit than to watch Candyman: Farewell To The Flesh. To me, it came off as a soft reboot. It's completely removed from the previous film that took place in Chicago. Now the vengeful specter has somehow…

Don’t Look Under The Bed (1999) Review

Disney had some pretty good original movies when I was a kid. Don't Look Under The Bed is by far one of the most creepy. It probably won't have you screaming but you will be unsettled. A teenage girl enlists the help of an imaginary friend to help fend off a bogeyman. It's a simple…

Tales From The Hood (1995) Review

We takin' it back to the 90s again! When rap music was about selling drugs instead of doing them. Police were just as corrupt and O.J. was on trial for murder. This was the time period that produced Tales From The Hood. An anthology of horror stories told from the perspective of a funeral director…

Se7en (1995) Review

What a classic! David Fincher is one of my favorite directors. One of his best works is Se7en. A crime mystery full of suspense and drama. It's a cast filled with star power. Morgan Freeman, Brad Pitt, Gwyneth Paltrow, and R. Lee Ermey. The movie is a masterpiece. A serial killer is committing murders inspired…

Death Becomes Her (1992) Review

This film holds a special place in my heart. It is one I watched with my late grandmother. She allowed me (fell asleep) to watch a bunch of crazy movies when I was a child. Death Becomes Her was one of them. It has such strong imagery and reminds me of The Addams Family. Two…

Pumpkinhead II (1993) Review

I was introduced to the Pumpkinhead franchise when I was 8 or 9 years old. Yes, I know that I shouldn't have been watching Rated R films but that's a whole nutha conversation. Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings is a soft reboot. It expands the mythos of the demonic character, introducing us to a new variation…

Child’s Play II (1990) Review

Welcome back my friends! Thank you for joining me on this long, forgotten, dark path. Halloween season is upon us and I will be bringing you reviews for the whole month. For October 1st, we start with Child's Play 2. It's a sequel obviously, but it also stands out from the original in other ways.…
