Hey hey hey, welcome to 2023, everyone! Well, I've been exploring, lightly, horror films for the last several months because I mostly got stuck in comedy and true crime. As you do.

I have an excellent view of the TV from my open kitchen, and I know the true history of this story so I was all: Hell Yeah - let's do this (as I was accidently burning things in the kitchen). Let's check out the Lifetime Movie version of the very real story of:  Escaping the Ma ..read more

October Challenge Day 29 I debated heavily about putting this out as a horror film review, but it came up in conversation with friends so much - because CULTS ARE TERRIFYING - that I was all, what the hell. Let's check out: The Source Family I hate cults so much.  SO MUCH.  I didn't even look up from my computer when major events happened in this documentary. I just pointed at the TV, and on queue, when this documentary was trying to be dramatic, I continued typing when these  happened: He thinks he's speaking to God.  He says he loves you.

October Challenge Day 27 So I binge watched this show after I already knew the story. And I was twice as mad afterwards.  Let's dive into the [belch] story about this [bletch] monster:  A Friend of the Family First of all: what a fucking looser. You sorry piece of shit.  Okay, now on to the story. This is a dramatization of an actual piece of garbage who stole a young girl - multiple times - and the family trusted him the whole time. This is a cautionary tale, but also not really. This family was completely oblivious to dangers and this douche canoe took advantage of it ..read more

October Challenge Day 11 Oh I am such a SUCKER for these 1950's horror films. They are just chaos. So I'm really excited to talk about the insanity that is:  Giant from the Unknown Hahahaha! First of all - they know where this giant is from. It's not unknown. It's a 500 year old conquistador. Not joking. But moving on! Okay, so this film opens with several ranchers hanging out on the main street of a small Sierra mountains town, all talking about (in great detail) the animal mutilations they are coming across. It was alarmingly graphic and then, suddenly, a Native American man comes wa ..read more
