I haven’t actually had a PS4 for that long, but I’m glad that I got one when I did. I got my PlayStation back when Death Stranding came out and I’ve played so many cool games since then. It also doesn’t look like my fun is going to be ending anytime soon. Despite some of the behind the scenes drama, I’m still excited to play The Last of Us Part II. It looks like a...

This is it, the final episode of Cursed Films. It’s been a journey. Especially interesting now because I believe the order that they have the episodes for the Shudder extension on Amazon in the wrong order. When I cross-referenced the episodes on Amazon with the actual Shudder website and IMDB I saw that episodes two and three had been flipped on Amazon and I actually reviewed the episodes out of order. Luckily this isn’t McMillions...

Another week in quarantine and another episode of Shudder’s Cursed Film. The film’s subject for this episode is The Crow, another movie that I had not seen until now. As always I feel that I must give a quick review to the subject film. The Crow is incredible. Though it’s backstory might be tragic (which we will be talking about later), it feels like a love letter to a man that should’ve been a star,...

Cursed Films is back! This episode has The Omen as it’s subject, a film that I actually haven’t seen before this episode. I did watch it before I watched this episode and The Omen ISSSSS… okay. It’s well directed but there isn’t really that interesting of a story and kind of wish that there was some more emotion to the film. All my feelings on The Omen actually sum up my feelings of this episode...

Good day horror fans. Back with another review of an episode of Cursed Films. This time the episode focuses on the classic film Poltergeist. A stupid, non scary, and at times poorly acted film that I fucking love. Seriously, I think this movie is one the most ridiculous and fun horror movies from the 1980s. If you haven’t seen it, watch it. It certainly hasn’t aged well in some parts (many film directors at the...

The world is fucked right now. So instead of going out and getting sick just watch some TV. That’s what I did. My editor asked me if I had a subscription to horror streaming service, Shudder. I then remembered that I got it for Creepshow back in October, forgot about it, and kept paying for it without using it. Boy, am I smart! My editor then asked me if I had watched their new series, Cursed Films. While I...

It’s really hard to pull off good monsters. It can be expensive, time consuming, and can take a lot of creativity. Then way back in the 1930s someone at Universal Studios got tired of doing Frankenstein-esque makeup and decided to say: “Fuck it! Let’s just make them invisible!” Thus came to the original Universal adaptation of H.G. Wells’ The Invisible Man in 1933 in this totally true story that you shouldn’t look up. There have...

Last year was a good year for film. Not only did we get a satisfying closing chapter to a more than decade long saga with Avengers Endgame but we got some excellent standalone films as well. While I haven’t agreed with some people’s favorites (don’t expect Joker or The Irishman on here) this year has brought me great cinematic joy. As someone that dreams of making his own movies, 2019 has been one of the...

I’m not going to lie; I’m scared to talk about this movie. I’ve been back and forth on whether or not I’m a Star Wars fan. I remember watching the movies over and over again in my mother’s best friend’s basement when I was a child. I also remember seeing many of the prequel films in theaters when I was a smaller. Of course, they haven’t aged well for me. I do stand by the visual excitement...

I don’t like to drive- Wait, let me rephrase that. I don’t like driving my car. It needs the coolant changed, a new alternator, and it makes funny sounds every now and then (really, these sounds get me laughing every time). Nevertheless, on the Sunday of December fifteenth I got into my 1999 Beetle and drove to LA, hoping that it wouldn’t explode. Why? Because Adam Sandler and the Safdie Brothers were doing a Q&A...
