I watched and enjoyed this year's horror movie “Barbarian” awhile back. It starts off as the first AirBnB horror movie - or the first one I've seen, anyway.
It occurred to me that back when cell phones grew into common usage I wondered how horror fiction would deal with ...

the happy family with a tear/slash between them is the perfect visual for yuppie horror stories!

Tension and Release and appreciation for WatcherBanes at 12:00AM, Sept. 29, 2022
Watcher (2022) is a fairly unknown new movie, I think, and I recommend it. Simple, well-made, and scary.
Might as well get an early start on the October celebration, here - the fall is my favorite season, for so many reasons, including the time to celebrate our love for the scary ...

Above and Below the SurfaceBanes at 12:00AM, Dec. 16, 2021
There are a couple of movies I've seen - only a couple that come to mind - with a very specific issue
that makes them not work for me.
It's when the THEME or below-the-surface meaning of the story holds together but the actual plot suffers for it.
Spoiler for ...
ZOINKS! 13 Ghosts??damehelsing at 12:00AM, Oct. 31, 2021
So, ladies and gents, friends and furries, yes, 13 Ghosts is the movie that haunted me as a child and to a point, still haunts me. I’ll never look at bathtubs the same.
BUT BEFORE I GET INTO THE MOVIE REVIEW, if you are reading this, and I kind ...
The Horror Group ShotBanes at 12:00AM, Oct. 28, 2021
There are a handful of cinematic “group shots” that showcase an ensemble of characters in a memorable way.
The Avengers in their first movie have one where they're finally all together, back to back in a circle to face the invading alien army.
There's the Usual Suspects in ...

The movie starts out simple, a young man peeks ...

Anyway for Scream! So, be warned, there are spoilers, probably bad ...
