You’ll be afraid to go back … in the streets. Well the Los Angeles streets made to look like St. Louis. The movie supposedly takes place in Missouri yet there’s not any shots of the Arch or the Missouri River. I love Alligator and it’s cheesy story. What’s not to

Wes Craven’s movies have left an indelible mark on the horror genre. Scream is one of the best ways to ease yourself into the horror genre. It was one of the films that brought me back into the horror family. Horror is subjective, but Scream has some horrific kill scenes. Writer,

I’m in love with Squid Game, and was a big fan of Escape Room. One would think that I would enjoy Tournament of Champions. They would be wrong. The concept of the two survivors coming back in the sequel and get involved in the game again. The concept has a

I remember watching The Silence of the Lambs with my parents when it was initially released. This may seem odd, but then again I watched and enjoyed Jodie Foster in another “heavy“ film, The Accused. I decided to ask my wife if she remembered seeing this in theaters. She could

I remember watching Misery in theaters. It’s one of the first times that I could feel the pain of the main character, expertly played by James Caan. Misery may be Caan’s best movie, but Kathy Bates is the star of the show. This is a career defining role. I also
