Rating Title/Year Author
B+ I Am Lisa (2020) Chauncey K. Robinson It's a werewolf film on a budget, but the good storytelling and strong acting shines through. The movie also does well by not falling into the same trappings of other revenge horror films. EDIT
Posted Jan 5, 2021
A+ Anything for Jackson (2020) Chauncey K. Robinson A uniquely told story that has genuine moments of fear. A breath of fresh air to have lead horror characters who are over the age of 25 for once. EDIT
Posted Dec 13, 2020
A Run (2020) Chauncey K. Robinson A quick-paced thriller that gets right to the action. There is high tension throughout that will have you on the edge of your seat, with great performances by the two leads. EDIT

B Beast Mode (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson The movie accomplishes the hard job of balancing genuinely funny comedy with horror elements. Although it leans more on the slapstick comedy than gore. EDIT
Posted Dec 3, 2020
B- The Craft: Legacy (2020) Chauncey K. Robinson A strong young cast with great potential, but the film falls short in the third Act, leaving you not quite satisfied. EDIT
Posted Dec 3, 2020
B+ The Call (2020) Chauncey K. Robinson The movie breaks horror rules, but in an innovative way. The acting is what carries the film, while the plot twists get muddled at times. EDIT
Posted Dec 3, 2020
A Cadaver (2020) Chauncey K. Robinson A timely horror movie that will get you thinking, even if the lead protagonist is frustrating to watch for most of the film. EDIT
Posted Dec 1, 2020
A His House (2020) Chauncey K. Robinson His House is a powerful film that showcases the horrors of immigrations while telling a good old fashioned haunted house story. EDIT
Posted Nov 27, 2020
B+ The Amityville Harvest (2020) Chauncey K. Robinson The Amityville Harvest is a different kind of installment to the Amityville franchise, but it still provides a spooky ride into the horror universe. Fun scares and an overall good time. EDIT
Posted Nov 10, 2020
A Hubie Halloween (2020) Chauncey K. Robinson Hubie Halloween is a feel good Halloween movie with heart. If you're not a fan of Adam Sandler's kind of comedy you may not enjoy it, but overall it has laugh out loud moments. EDIT
Posted Oct 20, 2020
A My Lover, My Lazy Boy (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson It's a horror gimmick B-movie that actually has an engrossing plot, solid acting, a cool killer, and some actual creep factor. Not a cinematic masterpiece, but a fun ride with good scares. EDIT
Posted May 5, 2020
B The Wave (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson A wild and multi-genre ride. There are messages on life throughout, but it gets muddled in the confused plotting. EDIT
Posted Mar 2, 2020

Posted Jan 21, 2020
A Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson ZombieLand: Double Tap was well worth the wait as the zombie universe is expanded and some great new characters are added to the mix. EDIT
Posted Oct 19, 2019
B- In the Shadow of the Moon (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson The pacing lags in multiple areas, but the mystery draws you in until the very end. It won't be everyone's cup of tea regarding the political theme, but the plot tie up is worth it. EDIT
Posted Oct 14, 2019
A Joker (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson The drama around Joker is overblown, mainly due to the media and people inserting messages in the film that aren't actually there. EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2019
B- Satanic Panic (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson Satanic Panic goes on 20 minutes longer than it needs to, but the gore and laughs make up for that. Also, Rebecca Romijn gives a top notch horror villain performance. EDIT
Posted Oct 2, 2019
C+ It: Chapter Two (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson IT Chapter Two has a lot going on in it- maybe too much. Pennywise is still pretty creepy, and there is compelling emotional depth, but the movie would have benefited from being 20 to 30 minutes shorter. EDIT
Posted Sep 19, 2019
C+ Day of the Dead: Bloodline (2018) Chauncey K. Robinson Day of the Dead: Bloodline tries to update the classic with a 'Me Too' angle and the results are mixed, but the classic zombie carnage makes up for it. EDIT
Posted Sep 17, 2019
Crawl (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson This creature feature has the right amount of gore, and just enough plot to bring it all together. The monster will not disappoint. EDIT
Posted Sep 17, 2019
The Witch Files (2018) Chauncey K. Robinson The Witch Files although going the overdone- and unnecessary- found footage route, actually tells an engrossing fantasy drama story with fun characters. EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2019
The Witch Files (2018) Chauncey K. Robinson The Witch Files although going the overdone- and unnecessary- found footage route, actually tells an engrossing fantasy drama story with fun characters. EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2019
Girls With Balls (2018) Chauncey K. Robinson Girls with Balls has a lot of energy, gore, and a few laughs. But nothing really sticks to make this film stand out- or have a point. EDIT
Posted Aug 27, 2019
Secret Obsession (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson Secret Obsession is a quick paced thriller, and although very predictable, it takes the viewer on an exciting ride with a satisfying pay off. EDIT
Posted Aug 26, 2019
Hoax (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson HOAX is a horror film that takes a lot of unexpected twists and turns, making for some exciting moments. Yet, at times, the film suffers from inconsistent tone. EDIT
Posted Aug 22, 2019
John Wick: Chapter 3 -- Parabellum (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson The film delivers on the non-stop fantastical action, but lags when trying to build the assassin universe beyond John Wick. This leads to an overinflated cast of characters. EDIT
Posted Aug 20, 2019
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark has some truly terrifying monsters, and even poignant real world commentary. Yet, the film suffers from overly generic main characters and uneven plotting. EDIT
Posted Aug 15, 2019
The Curse of La Llorona (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson The movie delivers on the jump scares, and gets extra points for exploring Mexican folklore. Yet, The Curse of La Llorona suffers from generic plot and easily forgettable characters. EDIT
Posted Aug 13, 2019
Annabelle Comes Home (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson Annabelle Comes Homes continues to deliver on the old school scares. Yet, this particular installment felt younger in tone and not as intense as the previous film. EDIT
Posted Aug 12, 2019
Midsommar (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson Midsommar starts off strong then devolves into a muddled mess. The filmmaker hopes you're too distracted by pretty visuals, solid acting, and violence to notice that this isn't a very good movie overall. EDIT
Posted Aug 9, 2019
Black Site (2018) Chauncey K. Robinson A movie that takes a chance by trying to create its own mythos, for a fresh take on sci-fi horror. It does well in meshing the genres with likable characters and an interesting plot. EDIT
Posted May 23, 2019
Pet Sematary (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson The film at its best is a no frills, slightly empty, adaptation of King's story. At its worst, it may feel like an episode of Tales from the Crypt that went on for one hour too long. EDIT
Posted Apr 5, 2019
Happy Death Day 2U (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson A fun enough film, but no where near as good as the first installment. There are one too many major plot holes as the film tries to explain too much. EDIT
Posted Feb 13, 2019
Velvet Buzzsaw (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson An innovative take on the slasher film, with an effective blend of dark comedy and social commentary. Yet, at times, the narrative feels scattered and uneven. EDIT
Posted Feb 2, 2019
The Kid Who Would Be King (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson A fun film that people of all ages can enjoy. It gives a different take on the legend of King Arthur, focusing on characters in the legend we don't always hear about. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2019
Io (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson A film that tries to come off deeper than it actually is. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2019
Polar (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson It appears the target audience for this film are overly horny teenage boys who want to see female nudity and graphic violence with little to no real plot. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2019
Escape Room (2019) Chauncey K. Robinson A smart horror film with characters that subvert overdone movie tropes. It has been compared to the Saw film franchise, but does a good job of being unique. EDIT
Posted Jan 3, 2019
Bird Box (2018) Chauncey K. Robinson A movie that builds tension and emotional stakes, while turning apocalyptic horror tropes on their heads. EDIT
Posted Jan 3, 2019
Lasso (2018) Chauncey K. Robinson Over the top, and utterly ridiculous in some instances, but in a good way. This movie stands in its truth of being extreme, and that will make you either love it or hate it. EDIT
Posted Dec 28, 2018
Slay Belles (2018) Chauncey K. Robinson A movie that doesn't take itself super seriously, but doesn't need to, as it takes the viewer on a erratic holiday ride, filled with blood guts and gore. EDIT
Posted Dec 28, 2018
Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013) Chauncey K. Robinson Not as good as the first film in the franchise, but it does a good enough job in continuing the spooky narrative. EDIT
Posted Dec 13, 2018
Insidious (2010) Chauncey K. Robinson A scary movie that doesn't rely heavily on CGI and gore like many horror movies of today, but rather more on plot and interesting characters. EDIT
Posted Dec 7, 2018
An American Werewolf in London (1981) Chauncey K. Robinson Aside from the special effects, this film is a fun time at the movies, but not as memorable as other horror classics. EDIT
Posted Dec 7, 2018
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) Chauncey K. Robinson A movie that goes a lot deeper than just a maniac with a chainsaw, and more political than many may realize. EDIT
Posted Dec 3, 2018
Hellraiser (1987) Chauncey K. Robinson Rightly considered a horror classic for pushing boundaries around sex and horror, Hellraiser is a flawed film with forgettable characters and gaping plot holes in the second act. EDIT
Posted Nov 25, 2018
The Blair Witch Project (1999) Chauncey K. Robinson Your friends lied to you when they said you needed to watch this film once before you die. Considered a horror classic, but this found footage movie has been severely overhyped. EDIT
Posted Nov 18, 2018
Extremity (2018) Chauncey K. Robinson A horror movie that's more psychological than jump scares, but doesn't skimp on the blood and gore in places where necessary. EDIT
Posted Nov 11, 2018
Suspiria (1977) Chauncey K. Robinson Considered one of Dario Argento's greatest works, but is it an overhyped horror classic? A visually strong film with even stronger women characters. EDIT
Posted Nov 10, 2018
Malevolent (2018) Chauncey K. Robinson A depressing journey that lacks genuine scares and any real direction. This Netflix original movie made some major mistakes that horror movies should avoid. EDIT
