Local stories warn that deep in the woods, a witch with a ravenous hunger feeds on the flesh of the young. In an abandoned house in the woods, she hunts her victims and if you try to enter, you'll never see daylight again.
Shortly after having this sent to me to review I took a quick glace at Amazon’s rating of this movie. It was actually decent at almost 4 stars I believe (IMDB is a 3/10!). I didn’t bother checking out the reviews... Continue reading
Two girls left to fend for themselves in the forest for five lonely years after the deaths of their parents find refuge in the home of their uncle. But it soon becomes clear that the girls have not arrived alone in this woodsy supernatural chiller.
I had no clue what this movie was about before I requested it for review. I had recalled seeing commercials for it awhile back and I remembered hearing some rumblings about how great it was. I also seem to recall some people telling me that I had to see it, that it was pretty scary. Then I got it in the mail and people kept telling me it was crap. Continue reading

But as the villagers are attacked one by one and turned into vicious beasts, Daniel begins to fear that his ruthless foe is someone closer than anyone thinks.
I tend to say that Werewolf movies “aren’t my thing” but usually I end up enjoying them. Silver Bullet and Ginger Snaps are probably my two favorite, at least off the top of my head... Continue reading

I received this movie to review the other day, and honestly hadn’t heard anything about it. Of course I’ve heard stories about the Jersey Devil over the years, but at the time I sat down to watch this I couldn’t remember... Continue reading
A group of indie rockers seek solitude deep in the woods to write songs for a new album. But they soon realize they're not alone when a sledgehammer-brandishing intruder arrives in this chilling musical slasher directed by actor Vincent D'Onofrio.
I saw the trailer for this movie months ago. I was a little leery about it, but it based on the trailer it looked interesting. Honestly, I sort of forgot all about it until last night when I was browsing new movies to Netflix streaming and saw this listed there... Continue reading

A group of college kids travel to a small, mountain town called Madison County to interview the author of a tell-all book on the accounts of several grisly murders that happened there. But when the kids get to Madison County, the author is no where to be found and the towns people act like they haven't seen him in years. They also say that the killer never existed and the murders never happened.
I expected this to be garbage. Redbox users rated this as a horrible filmed in the backyard sort of movie. So, I was happy when it turned out not to be nearly that bad... Continue reading

But her tricks may not be enough to stave off the creepy predator. This is a short story that was later adapted into an episode of Masters of Horror on Showtime in 2006.
I saw the Masters of Horror episode of this story back when it first came out. I watched a few more episodes and didn't like them. From my recollection, this one was the best one I had seen... Continue reading
