Behind You (2020) – Movie Review

Behind You is a curiously odd low budget experiment. This isn’t to say it’s a bad movie, so don’t take that the wrong way. On the contrary, writers/directors Andrew Mecham and Matthew Whedon have made an admirable and frightening sibling of James Wan’s The Conjuring, confining a family to a sprawling house and filling the movie […]

Rings

2017’s Rings is to 2002’s The Ring as a Smashburger is to a steak from Peter Luger’s in New York City. The absolute horror of the tightly-wound, dread-filled 2002 US remake of a 1998 Japanese horror film has been squeezed out of it, presenting only a crude imitation of the original with zero flavor or […]

Lights Out

Do me a favor before you read this review – click the “Play” button on this video and turn your computer’s sound system up to about 65%. Be warned: it’s kinda frightening. Get ready to be scared. Don’t worry… I’ll wait. Creepy, huh? That’s a taut nailbiter if I ever saw one. Writer/director David F. […]
