A geeky vlogger who supposedly is well known fakes haunted happenings on his show for more likes and pays the price for it. https://youtu.be/F7Ps3sdY-Uk

My guest is Kira Comerford ( @kirac_98 on Twitter ) of the up and coming site "Cinematique." Watch for it! We were co-hosts and friends for a couple years on a podcast called "Talking Stars" along with Darren Lucas. Kira credits me as a factor of her interest in horror. I love having positive influence on young ladies ;) These are two horror films we picked because they are similar in theme and genre. Both take ...

I have my movie podcasting friend Vern on this episode. You can reach him and find links to all his work atTwitter at @cinema_recall These are two great movies with Mermaids in them. There is some nudity in them, but I got over the trauma quickly so I could enjoy it (LOL). What did you think?

Luz and House on Haunted Hill are the films. My guest is Hermione Flavia and we chose a film each to review. It was great once again to have her on the show. She was a guest on my old podcast Talking Stars as well as this podcast. You can follow her on Instagram. Hope you enjoy the show.

My special guest today was MovieRob! Enjoy our hour long conversation. I challenged him, not a horror fan, to watch and discuss these two amazing horror films (well that's my opinion anyway.) Twas a lively chat! He will be back very soon.

Review: This film is on Amazon Prime Video currently, at time of writing this. I’m happy to review this film that really made an attempt at being a blockbuster. Brenton Thwaites (“The Giver,” “Gods of Egypt”) is just the younger fame aboard. We even have Billy Zane in the cast! Who can forget him in Titanic and so many other amazing stories like Daredevil. The guy has gotten around! He still looks like one scary dude too I might ad...

I saw this film this morning on Prime and am already eager to share my podcast review with you! See what I think about this incredibly well-crafted mermaid horror movie made for under 200K.

Psychedelic drugs have featured in many rock and roll films as well as some horror. Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” is replete with drug intended images and music. Many many more seek to do the same. While a mixed bag as far as quality, these films are beloved to college students and the career aged folks in love with the music. But that raises an important question: can a drug induced experience be enjoyed by many people? Read my full wr...

This all star cast can't really make it amazing, but it's entertaining nonetheless.

Explicit content and language! Synopsis: Sensing evil, a haunted house tour guide seeks a medium's help only to be warned that she is facing a vengeful power beyond her control. Review: In the places it succeeds as a horror film, “Sisters of the Plague” effectively uses creepy music, cinematography, and forest settings to create a sense of foreboding. I’ve related to you many times before that it’s this sort of thing that I pr...

Please make a mental note in your memory that , despite my low rating of this film, I love and respect independent filmmaking. They can be amazing. One example is “The Alchemist Cookbook.” In that film a guy tries to summon supernatural assistance and it messes him up big time. But there are no spooky connotations to the souls of duped cult members coming from the grave. I hope the next film I watch and review will be much better t...

“American Fright Fest” never gives up on itself. We have the director to thank for this I suppose. Whether it should have given up on the cutting room floor is an individual choice each horror fan has to make. It is indeed scary at times, which is surprising for its PG rating. Dylan Walsh of “Nip and Tuck” Fame is looking slightly old and certainly less adept with his lines. He’s Spencer Crowe, a fallen from grace horror director w...

“The Dawn” (2020) is a drama, horror, thriller film now available to watch on Prime Video. It stars Devanny Pinn in the lead role, known for Crossbreed (2019) and Casey Anthony: An American Murder Mystery (2017). She has no nude scenes that I know of, please inform me is you know any (asking for a friend). Stacy Dash also plays a small role (Clueless). It was directed by a man named Brandon Slagle who is just starting out in his ca...

I joke with the people who know and love me by calling this film my namesake. After all, it is right? (My first name being Damien) Rewatching this classic horror film was amazing. I saw so many subtle influences on later films through the decades. Chill with me as I dissect the film. Oh and you get a bonus: the audio from the original trailer. Thanks for listening.

Although the clown monster hit “It” of the same year may have ended up grossing more box office dollars, "Pet Sematary" is a much better horror movie written by Stephen King, in my opinion. The creepiness permeates and paves the way for a quaint yet terrifying tale of one family and a mystic pet cemetery just behind their house. I have observed modern horror includes both remakes of past hits as well as re imaginings. Thes...

Everything goes just perfectly in this film until the end portion. I would like to ask the director why he made the choices he did. But, then again, he is a director and they get to make those decisions. I've added this film to my excellent slashers list, it truly kicks ass despite the ending.

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
