The Exorcist (1973)

50 years old and still scary AF, M-E-E-ERRIN!!!!! Back in 2012 when promoting his movie “Killer Joe,” I told the recently departed William Friedkin that “The Exorcist” gave me the chills. I can’t provide you the evidence because it’s long… Read More ›

It Lives Inside

Another horror film you can worship. I like to compare “It Lives Inside” to “Smile.” That movie was about a young woman who has to not sleep, because she gets haunted by a sinister smile, which would eventually kill her…. Read More ›

Haunted Mansion

Humor and heart get conjured up in this fun ride-to-film transition. 20 years ago, we had the Eddie Murphy film version of the popular Disneyland ride “The Haunted Mansion,” which didn’t work and ended up being forgettable. 20 years later,… Read More ›
