The Ritual

Good evening and here we are again, sprinting facefirst through the black trees. This one’s got everything I love: stunning cinematography, myth, a survival horror narrative thread, buddy humor, and an absolutely horrifying monster. I’m deconstructing a new Netflix release – The Ritual [2017, directed by David Bruckner]. Our protagonist Luke and his friends all have a raging case […]

Twin Peaks: The Return

Greetings and Happy New Year, darklings. I’ve come back to you from the edge of madness after binging some of the most upsetting, intense, and confusing horror I’ve ever absorbed in my life. Yes, I use the word “absorb,” because this series will change you from viewing it. I’m not sure I would classify it as literally traumatic, […]

Trick ‘r Treat

Good evening, ghouls! It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and I’m a bit tardy, but back at it with one of the best Halloween flicks ever made. Have you seen it? It’s Trick ‘r Treat [2007, directed by Michael Dougherty]. This one had a bit of a dramatic birth. Its production was delayed […]

It

It’s finally here! And by “it,” I of course mean It [2017, directed by Andrés Muschietti]. This is the most prep I’ve ever done for a Bones post, and I need y’all to know that I suffered greatly, for you. Back in March or April, I ordered a copy of It the book, and have […]

The Conjuring 2

Ladies and gents, I’m a woman of my word. Sometimes to a fault. I’m also a completionist. If I’m playing video games and there’s a “collect crystals” mission available, I’m going to complete it. I’m going to do every single mission, no matter how terrible, repetitive, and boring. Yes, I know it’s a problem. As […]

The Conjuring

What up, ghouls? After a week like we’ve had, when I don’t recognize the world or the people in it and it’s still summer seriously why won’t it end, I seek something spooky. I’m back with two this month, and I got the urge to cover The Conjuring [2013], both 1 and 2. So tonight, […]

Suspiria

Good evening, you creeps! With apologies for radio silence, I’m back on the airwaves after completing a cross-country move. The boxes are unpacked, and I just really need some horror in my life right now. I aimed high this week. We’re digging into Suspiria [1977, directed by Dario Argento]. This is an Italian horror film, […]
