Hocus Pocus


In honor of Hocus Pocus and the 30th year anniversary its back in theaters! Today we look back at this Halloween classic.

The Exorcist: Believer


Another week, another horror film! Back in 2018, David Gordon Green (director) made a new “Halloween” film. It was a direct sequel of the first Halloween and was well-received with both critics and the public. I loved it and couldn’t wait for more. This stemmed two sequels that never lived up to the first entry from Green. We now have a new film that is a sequel to a classic horror film in “The Exorcist.” I should mention that Danny McBride helped write this as he did the Halloween movies. Great actor, usually great writer. That being said the plan is for another trilogy if this one does well. Looking at the box office results as I write this review, I believe there will be a sequel. Is it warranted?

Saw X


We are in the middle of “spooky season” in October so expect horror movies for the next few weeks. I am personally extremely excited for this, and I love this time of year. We also have the reemergence from an old horror movie icon in Jigsaw. This is actually the tenth film in the “Saw” series hence the name, if you include a quasi-spin off with Spiral starring Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson. If you’ve been reading and going to the movies with me since this column started, you may remember that review. I enjoyed it and it received 4 stars out of 5 rating!
