31 Nights of Horror IX, Night 22: LEVIATHAN

31 Nights of Horror IX, Night 22: Leviathan

Three sentence review:

Long live aquatic creature feature horror! Daniel Stern is so creepy and sleazy in this movie. If you’re looking to plan a great double feature night, watch Leviathan and then 2020’s Underwater (can you believe that was released this year – feels like a decade ago!)


31 Nights of Horror IX, Night 21: Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors!

31 Nights of Horror IX, Night 21: Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors!

Three sentence review:

This is a lot of people’s favorite NOES sequel, including mine! I am obsessed with the choice to bring in Heather Langenkamp as a young psychiatrist as if she’s old enough to treat these teenagers, though I suppose she does have a lifetime of trauma as experience. The effects are magical, Freddy’s one liners always deliver, and the world of the dream warriors is forever amazing.

31 Nights of Horror IX, Night 20: DRAGULA RESURRECTION!

OMG. I can’t describe how excited I was when it was announced that DRAGULA would have a Halloween special on Shudder!! If you haven’t watched Dragula before, seasons 2 and 3 are on Netflix. It’s the BEST. I had so much fun watching some of my favorite horror, filth and glam queens return to battle it out for a spot on season 4. MAKE SURE YOU WATCH THE POST CREDITS SCENE! Also I’m so happy for Priscilla Chambers – she looks so so happy!

31 Nights of Horror IX, Night 17: Rocky Horror Picture Show

Three sentence review:

Tonight my fiance and I went to a Halloween block party at my future in-laws house, and it was super fun. We drank a lot of tequila, then went home and went to our cellar to watch Rocky Horror Picture Show. I highly recommend drinking a lot of tequila and then watching Rocky Horror Picture Show in a cellar with your fiance.

31 Nights of Horror IX, Night 14: One Cut of the Dead

Three Sentence Review:

How much fun can you have watching a low budget horror movie? Apparently infinite fun when its a relentless, zany and entertaining zombie flick out of Japan. If you haven’t seen it I couldn’t BEAR to spoil it for you, just know that I highly recommend this one.

31 Nights of Horror IX, Night 13: Beetlejuice at The Pitts BBQ!

More than three sentence review:

Get your killer BBQ and chicken sandwiches at The Pitts BBQ in the south side of Richmond, VA. This little gem has my dream backyard patio: an expansive privacy fence surrounds a huge yard of retro and hodgepodge patio furniture and is decked out with kitschy signs, string lights galore and lots and lots of Horror props. The covered patio at the front of the yard even has Mike Myers and Pennywise to greet you! The Pitts hosts Tuesday movie nights and my fiancé and I went to enjoy some food, beer and the movie. The Pitts is known for BBQ, but they also have a fried chicken sandwich appropriately called The Hellraiser. There are three levels of the Hellraiser sandwich. Level one is about 40,000 on the Scoville scale so no big deal. I tried level two – 1,000,000 on the scale this time – and it was DELICIOUS TORTURE. My eyes watered, my nose ran and my tastebuds delighted. Much like Hellraiser, it was a mix of pleasure and pain. Whew. Not sure I could handle level three and get the free T-shirt but if you can do the Carolina reaper pepper go for it!! Beetlejuice the movie was iconic as always. Interesting to remember he’s only in the film for about 20 minutes. The characters and monsters are the absolute best. We had a blast!

31 Nights of Horror IX, Night 12: The Cleansing Hour

31 Nights of Horror IX, Night 12: The Cleansing Hour

Three sentence review:

The possession horror film enters the social media influencer age! I watched this one on Shudder and it’s about a “priest” who performs staged exorcisms via social media on his wildly popular YouTube-esque channel, The Cleansing Hour -there’s even Vatican approved holy water for sale! Things get creepy when an actual demon possesses one of their girlfriends and while I enjoyed it, I REALLY enjoyed the end and wish they would have expanded on that a little more!
