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 […]

The Witch (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

Consider this: After causing quite a stir at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, the horror film The Witch has finally been given a general release.  It is a genuinely creepy and thought-provoking horror film, one that works as a historical recreation (it takes place in 17th century America), a psychological thriller (you’re never sure who […]

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

I had high hopes for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the just-released film which, like the novel upon which it is based, attempts to combine Jane Austen and The Walking Dead.  The source material was good.  The cast — with Lilly James as Elizabeth Bennet, Jack Huston as Wickham, and Matt Smith as Parson Collins […]

Frightmare (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

Since I already reviewed one British film about cannibalism earlier today, I figured why not review another one?  Pete Walker’s film Frightmare was released in 1974, two years after the release of Death Line.  You have to wonder what was going on in British society in the early 70s that led to so many cannibal […]
