My Favorite Creature Features

The Creature Feature is a pretty broad sub-genre that has gone through various highs and lows in movie history. They are often horror films, though branch out into other genres like action and adventure. They started out as mainly being horror films that featured “giant monsters”, and gained their rise especially during atomic fears. Through…

Impressions: Train to Busan

I will admit a degree of ignorance when I went into this movie. I have seen some Korean films, but overall I could hardly call myself knowledgeable about them. Friends with more knowledge of Korean films highly recommended this to me and used the phrase “not a typical zombie film” to describe it. This was…

Worst Horror Movie Endings

This whole piece will contain a lot of spoilers. We are talking about worst endings so we will of course talk about the endings.

Impressions: The Redwood Massacre

So I hate to admit it, but it’s going to be a challenge to write out this impressions piece. I feel like I could sum it up as ‘not worth watching, I was convinced it was a joke’. In the interest of trying to write out complete thoughts, here we go. Redwood Massacre follows a…

Impressions: The Invitation

The phrase “you can’t judge a book by it’s cover” would translate fairly well to my hesitation to watch this film. It came highly recommended to me by Netflix (a hit or miss recommendation at best). Due to my knowing almost nothing about it, the description of the movie, and the pictures used for it…
