It’s been several years since the Saw franchise has graced us with its presence during the Halloween season. When I’d first heard that the series was getting a reboot, I was ecstatic.

A Plague So Pleasant
by Benjamin Roberds, Jordan Reyes
A Plague So Pleasant is a few years older, coming out in 2013, but I hadn’t really heard much buzz about it. It wasn’t until this past week when, browsing Amazon, I found it available to stream.
The plot synopsis piqued my interest immediately. Read More…
Howdy howdy everybody!

by Gore Verbinski
If you’re a fan of HMS and The Horror Show and you’ve been reading my reviews from the start, then there’s probably one thing you know about me: I have a bad habit of letting movie trailers hype up my expectations. Read More…

Split is 2017’s M. Night Shyamalan film that perhaps we were all pretty nervous about seeing. The first reason I’d mention is that, typically, horror films in January just don’t tend to do well, and the second is that his movies are pretty 50/50. Read More…
