Rating Title/Year Author
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

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

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

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

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
Posted Oct 24, 2018
Halloween (2018) Chauncey K. Robinson Halloween sets the bar high for any new slasher film that follows after, but the movie, and the franchise, still has one major flaw that they refuse to resolve. EDIT
Posted Oct 19, 2018
Venom (2018) Chauncey K. Robinson It may feel a bit like super hero movies before there were epic sagas, such as the Iron Man and Captain America franchises, but Venom is still a fun time at the movies. EDIT
Posted Oct 14, 2018
Annihilation (2018) Chauncey K. Robinson Annihilation may be the scariest horror film of 2018, or is it too intellectual for audiences? EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2018
The Strangers: Prey at Night (2018) Chauncey K. Robinson A horror movie with characters you can't get invested in, and 80 minutes of your life you can't get back if you watch it. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2018
Kudzu Zombies (2017) Chauncey K. Robinson A good time at the movies with a comedic spin on the zombie genre. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2018
A Quiet Place (2018) Chauncey K. Robinson A creature feature where the monsters are genuinely terrifying. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2018
Unlisted Owner (2013) Chauncey K. Robinson A return to old school found footage with a straight forward story. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2018
How It Ends (2018) Chauncey K. Robinson You won't beg for the two hours of your life back after watching this film. It had it's moments. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2018
Extinction (2018) Chauncey K. Robinson It's probably for the best that this movie went to Netflix and not to the theaters. It lacked spark to fill a huge room. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2018
The Nun (2018) Chauncey K. Robinson Old school jump scares and perhaps one of the best new monsters we've had in a long time. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2018
Terrifier (2017) Chauncey K. Robinson Part of me feels like this movie crossed too many lines, another part wants you to watch simply to experience one of the best clown villains ever with Art. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2018
Mandy (2018) Chauncey K. Robinson One of the best performances of Nicolas Cage's career, with blood, guts, and gore to boot. EDIT
