The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, A Review

Like many horror fans, after the trailer for “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” was released, I was elated to have a story that took us inside the courtroom. I wanted to discover just how Arne Cheyenne Johnson and his lawyer with a plea of not guilty by reason of demonic possession, argued and walked away with a mere 10-20 year sentence for manslaughter for the death of Alan Bono.

A Serial Killer’s Story

The killer bragged to authorities about the amount of people he had butchered during his time. One of his brutal murder victims was a young girl he picked up during a hitchhike

Spiral, Book Of Saw Review

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.

Assimilate, A Review

“Assimilate” (2019) truly has it all… both the creatures and the terrific scenes that keep you on the edge of your seat while watching.

Books of Blood, A Review

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.

Lights, Camera, Bite: Vampires In The Horror Genre

From “Dracula” (1931) to “Twilight” (2008), the image of vampires changed on our television screens throughout the decades. In the early stories, vampires were ghoulish monsters with fangs that appeared to look like the undead, but now modern-day vampires are portrayed as normal human beings. They are pale and mysterious to the human eye.

The Haunting Of Hill House

We horror and paranormal enthusiasts have a love affair with ghosts and haunted houses, and no author has quenched our lust for these stories quite like Shirley Jackson. American author, Shirley Jackson, was well known as a master of horror and mystery, over the duration of her writing career, with two decades of short stories, six novels, and two memoirs. This includes “The Haunting of Hill House” (1959), published by Viking Press.

Flowers In The Attic, A Review

The 1979 novel “Flowers in the Attic” is one of those books that people either love or mock, and I, the obnoxious fence-sitter, cannot even begin to pick a side there. I guess, I enjoy it? I’m not planning to throw out my copy of it any time soon. But, I also agree with a lot of the criticisms people have of it.
