PicMonkey Collage

“In sleep he sang to me, in dreams he came…” It’s not a secret that I’m a jazz-handing, jazz squaring, belt singing musical theatre fangirl.  Pair my love of horror movies with my obsession of musicals and it’s no surprise that one of my favorite horror movie characters is the famous “Phantom of the ______.”  […]

Review: RAGNAROK

253715_620

I will never understand why Hollywood insists on continuing to crank out the basic-ass bible story movies with whitewashed casts, when they could easily tell riveting stories by borrowing tales from Norse Mythology.  Save for the “less-than-accurate” portrayals of Thor and Loki, the Norse mythos don’t get nearly enough cinematic love.  Luckily for us, director […]

Review: AFTERMATH

AFTERMATH_STILL4

There is something fascinating about the end of the world. Obviously, not in a positive way. The reason we don’t see too many people welcoming the thought of the apocalypse with open arms, is because…well, the idea is downright terrifying. However, a film channeling humanity’s biggest fear is the next best thing, and well fright fanatics, AFTERMATH is […]
