Spooky Time looks back at ONE MILLION views, and marvels at how this little engine that could, did it! Also, Mike talks about his experience with Sharksploitation, Liz is overloaded with Fantasia reviews, and we discuss if the Exorcist trailer has us more or less excited about the upcoming Reboot.
What do we now know? Well, we now know we have a trailer and we have three pretty decent, if not a little odd, posters. The other thing we know is that Pazuzu is back to inhabit the bodies of not one, but two little girls. Take that Regan MacNeil!
★★★★ out of ★★★★★ 🩸 out of 🩸🩸🩸🩸🩸 #Manhole is a tense thriller that will keep your guessing until the very end.
★★1/2 out of ★★★★★ 🩸🩸 out of 🩸🩸🩸🩸🩸 Remember Witchboard? The Tawny Kitaen led Ouija Board camp classic? How well does it hold up to today's standards? It's earnest. It tries hard. But it's as stiff as the Ouija Board itself. Read on for more conclusions!

★★★★ out of ★★★★★ Intensity: 🩸🩸🩸 out of 🩸🩸🩸🩸🩸 Joseph reviews new "Supernatural --- or is it?" shocker COBWEB.
Break out the nunchucks and bo staves, it's time to talk horror with Eastern roots. The kung-fu / martial arts sub-genre of the action-horror theme is populated with some of the wildest, most convoluted, and most colorful movies imaginable. And some of these films push past the imagination level. So let's get weird and wacky, and bring on the chop socky! Haaaaiiiiiaaaahhh!
★★★ out of ★★★★★ Do weird-looking albino kids give you the chills? What about oddball kids that have been indoctrinated into a religious fervor? What about strange kids set in a 1980s Giallo-esque Spanish village? Well, Tin and Tina has all this and more.

Bathrooms are the most private of places. These are places where we clean ourselves, relieve ourselves, medicate ourselves, and we usually like to do these things in private. With the exception of being with our young children and lovers/mates, we do our business in the bathroom ALONE. There are large percentages of our time in the bathroom naked or with our pants down. We are vulnerable in there. That's why we have privacy locks on these doors. Horror Movies turn the tables on our perceived privacy and security in bathrooms, and Trapped in a Bathroom is one of the most evergreen tropes in the genre. Here are 30 films that showcase the trope really well.

The slow-burn folkloric feature The Seeding follows an oblivious photographer who gets trapped in the bottom of a desert crater, whose only inhabitant is a lovely young woman, and a pack of nasty feral boys preventing his escape. What do they want? What does SHE want? This was one of BiFan's Bucheon Choice film selections.

★★★★1/2 out of ★★★★★ 🩸🩸 out of 🩸🩸🩸🩸🩸 With a complex multi-story plot featuring an alien in a basket, a serial killer, sister assassins, a failed Yakuza strongman, and a discount ninja instructor, the BiFan showcased feature Life of Mariko in Kabukicho is a delightful slice of life in sleazy Tokyo that Quentin Tarantino could admire. The story complexity is grounded by the clever and stalwart young detective Mariko (Sairi Itô) who investigates all sorts of strange goings on in her neighborhood. This is only horror adjacent, and is more of a storytelling collage featuring several genre types. It is intoxicating, Go see it when you get a chance.
Highlights include a Special Presentation of Clive Barker’s NIGHTBREED: DIRECTOR’S CUT, an Under the Stars event on Miami Beach’s famous Ocean Drive, celebrating Tobe Hooper’s all-time horror classic TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE, plus seven more Virtual Film Premieres!

Intensity: 🩸🩸 out of 🩸🩸🩸🩸🩸

A Korean couple fail to heed the warnings of a serial killer on the loose when embarking on a romantic chabak (car camping) excursion. A standout performance by Kim Minchae and a strong story foundation probably pushes one too many melodramatic twists at the end. Still an entertaining slasher film worth watching.
