What I Learned from Watching 4 Jaws Movies in a Row + A Ranking

For the Horrorathon for the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization (LVEJO), I watched all 10 Children of the Corn movies in a row. Because we exceeded the original fundraising goal, I did a bonus franchise and watched the Jaws sequels as well. These are my stories. What I Learned From Watching the Jaws Sequels: There is Good Reason … Continue reading What I Learned from Watching 4 Jaws Movies in a Row + A Ranking

Baby Sharks, Dolphin Sidekicks, and SeaWorld: Is Jaws 3-D (1983) Worth It?

This is part of the BONUS edition of the Horrorathon for the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization (LVEJO). Jaws 3-D is the only Jaws sequel I knew anything about because as a kid it was super cool to me it took place at SeaWorld (it was before Blackfish!). I remembered the shark swimming outside the underwater … Continue reading Baby Sharks, Dolphin Sidekicks, and SeaWorld: Is Jaws 3-D (1983) Worth It?

Teen Drama, Tiny Boats, and Paranoia: Is Jaws 2 (1978) Worth It?

This is the first post in the *air horn noise* BONUS edition of the Horrorathon for the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization (LVEJO) because we ended up raising $300 (!) for the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization. We are starting with Jaws 2 because let's be honest, I'm not going to say anything about the original … Continue reading Teen Drama, Tiny Boats, and Paranoia: Is Jaws 2 (1978) Worth It?

Scream 5 is Another Solid Franchise Sequel

Yet another Ghostface Killer(s) is stalking the teens of Woodsboro and everyone is once again a suspect. Some spoiler free analysis before jumping into spoilers: fear not Scream fanatics. This is another solid sequel on par with the others, and it does the franchise justice. Between this and Scream 4, I would sort of love … Continue reading Scream 5 is Another Solid Franchise Sequel

Christmas (and bonus New Year’s!) Horror Movie Favorites 

Black Christmas (All 3 of them)  I know with the exception of the original these movies tend to be polarizing, but they feel like my children. I may not love them equally, but that's also because I find it so hard to compare them. Instead, I appreciate each Black Christmas for different things. And I'm … Continue reading Christmas (and bonus New Year’s!) Horror Movie Favorites

Just in time for Christmas, I'm finally posting my October films recap! Every October I watch at least 31 horror films.

Bottle Episodes, Mail Order Brides, and Final Destination Knockoffs: Is Children of the Corn: Genesis (2011) Worth It?

This is part of the Horrorathon for the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization (LVEJO).  I guess we've given up on taglines and everything else at this point Coming two years after the 2009 Syfy channel remake, Children of the Corn: Genesis follows a couple who get stranded on a desolate desert road in California. When they … Continue reading Bottle Episodes, Mail Order Brides, and Final Destination Knockoffs: Is Children of the Corn: Genesis (2011) Worth It?

Vietnam, Giant Hats, and Teen Moms: Is Children of the Corn (2009) Worth It?

This is part of the Horrorathon for the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization (LVEJO).  The Children of the Corn franchise rested for eight years between the seventh entry (Children of the Corn: Revelation) and this eighth entry. My understanding of why there are so many mediocre straight to video entries in this middling franchise is because … Continue reading Vietnam, Giant Hats, and Teen Moms: Is Children of the Corn (2009) Worth It?

Murderous CGI Corn, Hopscotch Girl, and Exploding Ghosts: Is Children of the Corn: Revelation (2001) Worth It?

This is part of the Horrorathon for the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization (LVEJO).  I guess they are just going with "newest" and "terror-filled" this time. One of these was definitely true when this was released! After an abysmal sixth film to cap off the 90s, we get the first Children of the Corn film of … Continue reading Murderous CGI Corn, Hopscotch Girl, and Exploding Ghosts: Is Children of the Corn: Revelation (2001) Worth It?
