The summer is heating up! And, with the warmth of July upon us, it may be best to stay in the air-conditioning and give yourself a chill with one of these scary movies!
When I watched the trailer, I knew this was a must-see. I grew up reading R.L. Stine’s novels, and I still do to this day. When the announcement was released that Netflix was airing a “Fear Street” movie series, I was cheering with joy and excitement.
The “Saw” story follows the traditional “Jigsaw” ideology of “kill, maim, destroy or be killed,” throwing in the gore-driven exploration of narcissistic behavior, self-sacrifice, human frailty, revenge, and even psychopathic, murderous genius. But, ultimately, the franchise creators once again cater to the demands of the strong fan-base.
If you have access to the streaming service Hulu, you may be aware of the film “Books of Blood” (2020) that was released on October 6, 2020. This film was part of a collection of films that Hulu released for Halloween, and being a huge horror fan, I couldn’t help but watch. Afterward, I did some digging into the film and discovered that it was based on a book.
