Ouija (2014)

Never understood why this movie gets such a bad rap. Sure, it's nothing groundbreaking in the Teen Scream arena, but it at least deserves to be higher up in the barrel. It's got spooky atmosphere, jump scares, a mystery to unravel, and even Lin Shaye! Come on! Overall it's an enjoyable, popcorn, watch-with-friends-in-a-dark-room kinda horror flick.

VFW (2019)

If you're looking for a splatter fest that's light on plot and heavy on gratuitous violence, this movie might be for you.

Dead Birds (2005)

This could have been much better if they didn't put in so much of the generic "demon face" CGI that was all-the-rage in the early 2000's horror industry. You know the face: razor-sharp teeth, black-hole eyes, streaky pallid skin, growling hiss (see photo). There's an excessive amount of that in this movie. Really detracted from an otherwise creepy haunting premise.

Rogue (2007)

Excellent creature-feature on a lazy Sunday afternoon! I wish Sheriff Longmire would've lasted longer, though.

The City of the Dead (1960)

  Discovered another song sample: from Rob Zombie's "Dragula".

Lady in White (1988)

I never watched this as a kid, so I don't have any nostalgic connection to it at all. That being said: it was hard to sit through the incredibly cheesy Hallmark-channel-level 80's heartfelt treacle that comprised a good 50% of the movie. Almost made me quit a couple times. But then there are some genuinely frightening scenes, like a little girl getting strangled to death by an invisible assailant. There was also a surprising amount of heavy content relating to race relations (was this a "kid's" movie?!). In the end, I made it through the whole thing, the guy I figured was the killer from the beginning turned out to be the killer, and I'll probably never watch this again.

The Last Winter (2006)

Too heavy-handed and slow, just not quite interesting. Wendigo "ghosts" didn't make sense within their own mythos, and the attempted Resident Evil-style ending flopped.
