Pet Sematary (1989) – movie review

I owe this one to Candace Krissie (hope I spelled your name right, my friend), who solved a puzzle in one of my previous posts and got herself a review as a reward! Her pick was Pet Sematary, another Stephen King’s adaptation, this time around adapted by the author himself to a movie. This is … Continue reading Pet Sematary (1989) – movie review

The Classics of Horror #16 – Misery (1990)

Legend says that Stephen King, dissatisfied by his latest adaptations, asked Rob Reiner to work on the transposition of his novel Misery (1987) to film. The director behind the awesome Stand by me (1986) agreed to work on a King’s source material once again. As a result, Misery (the movie) came out in 1990, starring … Continue reading The Classics of Horror #16 – Misery (1990)

Baby Blues (2008) – movie review

I owe this one to my friend Jimmy Ray Davis, who solved a puzzle and got himself a review of his choice as a reward. As a matter of fact, I’m also quite happy about his pick, since it gave me the opportunity to watch and talk about a movie I haven’t seen or heard … Continue reading Baby Blues (2008) – movie review

Welcome to the shaky-cam, off-screen gore fest. Leatherface – movie review

The real monster. Jeepers Creepers 3 – movie (non) review

When Jeepers Creepers made its appearance on the big screen I was 12 years old and, coming from an apprehensive Italian family, I wasn't allowed to watch horror movies. Becoming a teenager, however, my uncle introduced me to the horror genre (something I'm still thankful for), showing me all the classics of the genre and … Continue reading The real monster.

Starting off as the most anticipated movie of 2017 among horror fans, Stephen King’s IT is now the highest grossing horror film in cinema history (at least in the US), only some two weeks after it hit the American theatres. The movie about a bunch of kids – the appropriately named “losers” – who fight … Continue reading Something to admire (and be scared of) for the next 27 years. IT – movie review

The Classics of Horror #14 – The Thing (1982)

The creature-feature obsession that had ruled the black and white sci-fi horror cinema, stopped almost entirely in the 50s, with audiences overwhelmed by crappy B-movies and tired of being thrown the same story inhabited by paper-thin characters. A man alone, with a single film, changed everything at the beginning of the 80s. John Carpenter’s The … Continue reading The Classics of Horror #14 – The Thing (1982)

The Classics of Horror #11 – Alien (1979)

Upon re-watching Alien for the umpteenth time last night, I love it even more than I remember. Do you want to know why? Because it almost made me forget about Alien: Covenant… All jokes apart, Alien is a masterpiece of horror cinema in space. It tells the story of the crew of a space vessel … Continue reading The Classics of Horror #11 – Alien (1979)
