So from now on I have decided to do my reviews as videos, I just decided this will be more fun for me, and more time efficient as well as easier to get my points and feelings across swiftly. So was Halloween Kills a cut above the rest? If you have 12 minutes and 36 seconds you can find out what I think and listen to me not try to sound absolutely horrible while doing so! That in itself should be worth the listen, right?
The Chucky show is finally here and I have many thoughts on it so far!

I am going to cut to the chase on this one. I am not in anyway a fan of the first Venom film. That film infuriated me in so many ways. I walked out hating it and hating the powers that be that made this film a reality. I also walked out feeling like I was taking crazy pills because much of the crowd seemed to enjoy it. I don’t know why they did. It is by most reasonable and logical measures a poorly made, silly mess of a film. One that bastardizes it’s beloved source material for a couple of cheap laughs and a quick buck. One that further cemented the fact that if not for the licensing rights Sony holds onto with an iron grasp, that they have no business making Spider-Man films when Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are the first names that show up on the producers list. Still, despite my burning hatred, the film made an upsetting amount of money. Thus guaranteeing a sequel and a showdown with Carnage, Venom’s one true nemesis not named Spider-Man. Sigh…
The original Candyman has always been what I consider a perfect horror film. I have watched it countless times as I am sure many of you reading this have, and there is absolutely nothing I would change. I love everything about it. The sequels however are another story, while Candyman Farewell to the Flesh makes an honest attempt at being a serious sequel, it is missing the magic that the first one captured so effortlessly. The less said about Candyman 3 Day of the Dead the better. So now almost 30 years later, thanks to the producing clout of Jordan Peele and the stellar direction of Nia DaCosta we are blessed with a new Candyman film. And yes, blessed is the appropriate term to use here because as it turns out, this film is superb. Much like it’s predecessor this is a film about ghosts…and so much more.
