Is ‘Ring Ring’ Worth Picking Up? – 31 Spooks of October

Ring Ring is a 2019 Indie film that is sure to make you feel… meh. For a film on a decently cheap budget you are sort of impressed by the film’s bolstering of a 6.9/10 on IMDb; of course until you realize most of the accounts are only a couple months old, have only reviewed […]

Ready Up For A Bit of the Ultra ‘Violence Voyager’

Have you ever laid your eyes on something so strange and repulsive that it makes your skin crawl a bit? For me that was my initial reaction to when I first gazed upon this “thing” from Ujicha’s Violence Voyager. This odd-looking fetus Golem with some boom box shaped head and the eyes of a salted […]

CUT/SHORT: Danse Macabre

Warning! The following short film contains graphic and disturbing depictions of death and suicide. Viewer Discretion is advised. The short film Danse Macabre is simply, eloquently morbid.

The Spookiest Name is Emily

What comes to mind when you think of a name that feels “spooky”. You might think of cacophonous sounds or blunt like Lucifer or Vlad or Billy. However, in my reading of multiple horror anthologies I came across something serendipitous. 2 tales, both with a titular character named Emily… a name that doesn’t sound that […]

What is the Best Episode of ‘Creeped Out’ Season 2?

Last year I covered the BBC/Netflix horror series Creeped Out, and it was fun but in my earnest opinion nothing special. It had potential but didn’t seem to have much of an identity of whether it wanted to be creepy, or moralistic, or modern so I figured I would never talk about it again. When […]

All Aboard the ‘Infinity Train’ – Every Episode Review (Part 1)
