The Changeling (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

If you love horror movies, you have to track down and see The Changeling. First released in 1980, The Changeling stars George C. Scott as John Russell, a composer.  At the start of the film, he watches helplessly as both his wife and his daughter are killed in a horrific auto accident.  The grieving John […]

The Shallows (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

Have you seen The Shallows yet? The Shallows was released last month, to strong box office and surprisingly good reviews.  Ever since it came out, people have been telling me, “You have got to see The Shallows!”  Well, I finally did see it earlier today and you know what?  I should have seen it earlier. […]

Jaws (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

There’s little that is more intimidating than trying to write a review of the 1975 best picture nominee, Jaws. I mean, seriously, what’s left to be said about this film?  Jaws is one of those movies that everyone has seen and everyone loves.  And, even if someone somehow hasn’t seen the film, chances are that […]

The Conjuring 2 (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

The Conjuring 2 will scare the Hell out of you. Seriously, I’ve seen a lot of horror films, including the first Conjuring (which I absolutely loved).  I’ve seen ghosts, vampires, demons, werewolves, psycho killers, and threats in the shadows.  I’ve seen cats jump out of closets.  I’ve seen ghostly faces suddenly appear in the darkness. […]

Cat People (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

In Paul Schrader’s 1982 reimagining of Cat People, Irena (Natassja Kinski) is a naive young woman (and virgin) who, after the death of her parents, has spent most of her previous life in foster care.  Irena travels to New Orleans, where she reconnects with her older brother, Paul (Malcolm McDowell).  From the minute that Irena meets […]

The Curse of the Cat People (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

So, you can add the 1944 film The Curse of the Cat People to the list of films that made me cry. And I know that you’re probably going to point out that it’s already a very long list and I know that some people believe that I cry at every movie that I see. […]

Cat People (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

The 1942 horror classic Cat People is often described as being a horror film where, up until the last few minutes, the monsters are mostly psychological.  And there is some definite truth to that.  The title creatures remain a mystery for the majority of the film and, up until those final minutes, the audience would […]

My Little Sister (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

If there’s anything that I’ve learned, from my long history of watching horror films, it’s that only fools go camping.  Seriously, nothing good ever comes from wandering around in the woods or sleeping in a tent.  Inevitably, you’re either going to attacked by a zombie while you’re skinny dipping in the nearby pond or a […]

Hush (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

Let me start by stating the obvious.  I have seen a lot of horror movies.  I love horror as a genre and, in fact, it was my love of horror that first led to me becoming a film blogger in the first place.  I have seen a lot of scary and shocking images onscreen.  I […]

10 Cloverfield Lane (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

I know that everyone’s excited about Batman v. Superman being released this weekend but before you go off and spend your money to watch two comic book titans beat up on each other for six hours (or however long that damn movie is supposed to last), you should ask yourself, “Have I seen 10 Cloverfield […]
