A Haunted House (2013) Review

I haven't seen slapstick like this since Scary Movie. Marlon Wayans is a writer and producer as well as the star. He played the role of Malcolm, who moved into a new home with his wife. A couple of days later, supernatural things started happening. It's parody of movies like Paranormal Activity and The Exorcist.…

Jingle All The Way (1996) Review

He is the combination of 90s Sentai shows and Marvel's Ironman. December is gone but I'm still in the holiday spirit. One Christmas film that stands the test of time is Jingle All The Way, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sinbad. The film has a special place in my heart and you don't have to wait…

8-Bit Christmas (2021) Review

The Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) is a pioneer in the game industry. As a child, my mother gifted me a Super NES. It helped shape who I am today. I consider myself a Nintendo fanboy, and have six of their consoles in my home. My fiancée and I happened upon the trailer while on HBO…

Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021) Review

The Ghostbusters franchise is one I hold in high regard. A ritual of my childhood revolved around viewing VHS tapes on repeat and stalking the TV guide for upcoming programs. To this day, I can't tell you how many times I have seen the first two. Rumors of a third movie with the original cast…

Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight 2 (2021) Review

The story picked up exactly where the last one left off. The director, Bartosz M. Kowalski, retconned the final scene to make this (the sequel) possible. Immediately turned me off. How the hell he thought it was a good idea to ruin the protagonists from the previous film astonished me. In this installment, the mutant…

Free Guy (2021) Review

I saw the trailer for this film over a year ago. It showed such promise as a parody of video game culture. The movie stars Ryan Reynolds as an NPC (non-playable character) that becomes self-aware. It's one of the most original ideas I've seen in a while. Sadly, it turned out to be a convoluted…

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…

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 11, The Manson Brothers Midnight Zombie Massacre

Mike Carey is a badass! Don't believe me? Listen to the story. The guy is one of the most kind people you'll ever meet. Ignore his Steiner Brothers build and get to know the person. We're all gentle giants at the end of the day, except for Batman. Stay away from him. Mike is 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…
