Now that this is movie 16, I have finally reached the halfway point of my challenge. Halfway through being scared every night when I go to bed. Halfway through thinking people behind me are going to come kill me. So, I couldn’t have picked a better film to mark the halfway point of my challenge because I...

Paris Hilton’s debut into film was probably a scarier concept than the plot of “House of Wax,” but ultimately, it made for a fun reflection of the culture of 2005, since it didn’t really make for a good film. Read More »...

A modern take on a cult horror classic, “The Evil Dead” reboot actually makes for an enjoyable view — that is, if you can get past watching one character cut their tongue open and another cut their arm off in a daze. Read More »...

There are few horror franchises stupider than “The Leprechaun,” and there are hardly any horror sequels worse than “Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood.” I’m ashamed in myself for watching this. Where I watched: Vimeo Length: 90 minutes Prior knowledge of the film: With a name like Erin I’m ...

On last week’s episode of my new favorite TV show, “Scream Queens,” Wes, the film professor, shows “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” in his class. The scene cuts to one of the students in his class throwing up in her purse. I remember watching this scene and thinking that there’s no way anyo...

Lately,  I’ve been watching really terrible movies for this list. I am so excited to finally have been able to watch a good film — actually, a great film again. Although I have definitely seen it before, I didn’t remember how fantastic of a film “The Exorcist” is, and watching it has re...

When I checked this movie out at my local Family Video, the employee there asked me if I’d ever seen it before. I answered no, and she said “This movie is so weird. I don’t even know what else to say. I don’t even know if it’s scary. It’s just so weird.” I couldn’t agree more. Read ...

By day seven, this challenge is really starting to drag. It’s tough having to watch a movie every single day, on top of classes homework and everything else I am doing at The DePaulia. Thankfully, I have never seen “The Descent,” and I’ve actually never even heard of it. The complete lack ...
