The Void (2016) Review

There’s no way I could be the herald of The Story Monster and not be a fan of creature features. The Void (2016) is a horror film based on Lovecraftian monsters. Directed by filmmakers Jeremy Gillespie and Steven Kostanski. These guys are not strangers to the sci-fi and horror genre. Gillespie has worked as an art director on The Boys, Locke & Key, IT Chapter … Continue reading The Void (2016) Review

The Fly (1986) Review

The Fly (1986) For those interested in dipping their toes into the realm of science fiction horror, the 1986 movie The Fly is the perfect introduction. Another film with the same name came out in 1958, so the 1986 movie The Fly is a remake. Written and directed by David Cronenberg, The Fly is based on the short story by George Langelaan. It’s about a scientific genius, Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum), who transforms into a mutant fly. When it comes to body horror, … Continue reading The Fly (1986) Review

Nope (2022) Review

Jordan Peele created something special with Nope. Surprisingly, no one is talking about it these days. Mixed reactions from critics upon its theatrical release cast a little skepticism. As the saying goes, “you can be a victim of your own success.” Peele set a precedent of multi-layered storytelling with complex plot threads, subliminal messages, and social commentary. Not surprised if viewers find this film to be … Continue reading Nope (2022) Review

Godzilla vs. Kong (2021) Review

I want more monster fights and less humans! Millie Bobby Brown is great but did not need to be in this movie. Her little “side mission” with her friend from school and the strange man off the internet was reminiscent of The Goonies. Yet added nothing to the overall story. GvK (Godzilla vs. Kong) is the fourth film in the monster franchise, starting with Gareth … Continue reading Godzilla vs. Kong (2021) Review

Shin Godzilla (2016) Review

This is the best Godzilla movie I’ve ever seen. Period. It’s a return to form for the franchise. The titan was presented in a surprising and unconventional way. Instead of having giant reptilian scales, the exterior of the creature is rocky and volcanic. It was very alien and reminded me of John Carpenter’s The Thing from 1982. Can you say destruction? I haven’t seen a … Continue reading Shin Godzilla (2016) Review

PG: Psycho Goreman (2020) Review

Children of the 90s are going to love this. Psycho Goreman is the love child of Jeepers Creepers and Goldar. He’s a monster that takes pleasure in murdering people, all while being a complete goofball. This film is not to be taken seriously, its a tongue-in-cheek parody of the genre. Think of it as an R-rated Power Rangers on cocaine. The makeup/effects are mostly practical, … Continue reading PG: Psycho Goreman (2020) Review
