On Saturday, November 18th- (I’m late posting this, too busy stuffing my face with Thanksgiving food and all)- I had the opportunity to check out horror god John Carpenter’s Anthology Tour, where he and his band performed some of his best musical scores from his famous films, as well as his own solo compositions that are not featured (but should be!) in any major motion picture or project.   Continue reading

I remember the first time I had heard that the seventh season of one of the very few shows I actually watch on TV, American Horror Story, was going to be centered around the 2016 election: I cringed and said out loud to myself, Oh no, Ryan Murphy, baby! What are you doing?!  I just could not imagine reliving the truly horrifying real-life nightmare that was last year’s presidential election again- but alas, here I am, reflecting on last night’s season finale, feeling super depressed that it’s all over, yet satisfied at the outcome of what has become my favorite season of AHS to date.  Ironically, this season, Cult- that I originally thought would be an annoying replay of one of the worst times of modern American history- actually became an entertaining escape from the bullshit of the things that are happening right now.  Who would have thought?  This is my thorough review of American Horror Story: Cult.  Continue reading

Garance Marillier in Raw (Petit Film)

As much as a small part of me cringes when I hear a new horror film being described as an “art horror” (a little pretentious), I usually tend to agree that these films- including The Babadook and It Follows- are pretty damn good pieces of cinema.  2016’s Raw is no different.  I’ve been searching for Raw for some time now, and since its recent release on Netflix, I finally got a chance to see what all the fuss was about myself… Continue reading
