The Town That Dreaded Sundown (2014) (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

The Town That Dreaded Sundown is the latest classic horror remake.  In this case, it’s a remake of a 1976 docudrama about a real-life serial killer who, shortly after World War II, haunted the streets of my former hometown of Texarkana, Texas.  The original was a low-budget but effectively creepy little film that was shot on […]

The Conjuring (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

Tomorrow, the first horror film of October — a film about an evil doll named Annabelle — will be released.  Before I see and hopefully review that film, I thought this might be a good time to revisit the film that “inspired” Annabelle, 2013’s The Conjuring.
