Favorite Zombie Movies

In honor of the month of spooky, I thought I would write something about one of my favorite sub-genres of horror, the zombie. Now zombies have gone through a number of changes in recent years. Thanks to the late great Mr. Romero there was a drastic shift from the zombies of ancient lore to diseased,…

Impressions: Cult of Chucky

The first thing I want to say is to the fans of the Child’s Play/Chucky franchise, I tried. I truly did. The second would also be a bit of a warning; I have not seen most of this series. I genuinely enjoyed the first movie and thought the second was silly fun. Since then I…

Impressions: Life (2017)

Impressions: Wolf Creek

I know I am pretty darn late to the party with this movie, but it’s worth discussing regardless. I’ve been on the fence about this movie for awhile. It seems to be the type of movie that people have strong reactions to. People either hate it or love it. As a general rule when a…
