We’re still all about the horror topics for October, so let’s talk about some horror comedy flicks!

#1 Evil Dead II/Army of Darkness

You have no idea how much I love this movie series. The first Evil Dead movie is mostly just horror not comedy but part 2 and 3 are amazing. You’ll be laughing so hard! Can we just take a moment to appreciate Bruce Campbell?

#2 Braindead aka Dead Alive

Did you ever wonder what Peter Jackson was doing before LOTR? This movie is something else. I swear, more people need to know it and love it!

Movie Mania: Ready or Not

Hello, hello!
2019 had so many great films in theaters I am still trying to catch up with my reviews. Although there wasn’t a single film I didn’t enjoy, I certainly had one of the best times ever with Ready or Not. Let’s find out why!

The Plot:

Grace and Alex just got married. Grace is excited to finally reconnect with Alex’ estranged family – something she will soon regret.

Thursday Movie Picks: 2019 Releases

Hey, guys!
Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
Today I’ll share some of my favorite films that came out last year. Reviews for all of those are coming in April – so stay tuned!

#1 Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

I actually went to see this one twice. Tarantino’s latest picture divides audiences and I can understand why some people disliked it. However, I for my part had a great time with it!

#2 Ready or Not

Speaking of great times! I laughed so much while watching this crazy movie. Samara Weaving is stunning and in the final scenes, she gave me Heather vibes. Ready or Not was (by far) not as hyped as my other picks but it gets a 100% recommendation from me.
