Grant, Lucy Lawless, and Patton Oswalt Directed and written by: Philip Gelatt, and Morgan Galan King   “The Spine of Night” will definitely require a spine to watch it.

Halloween Horror Nights 30 (HHN30) took place in Orlando, Florida at Universal Studios throughout September and October. As you can see, this year was the big 30th edition of the event, so they had to present a special celebration for all of those who have been attending over the years. With that, they celebrated some of the event’s horror icons from past years, along with some well known properties like Beetlejuice and The Haunting of Hill House.   We have been going to the event for years, and made the decision to come out of COVID hiding to attend HHN30. In the video below, I review HHN30, and talk about some of the shows, scare zones, and haunted houses. I include tips for this event, and some for future years as well. There’s also pictures and video within the review to help show what I’m talking about. Of course you can visit my YouTube Channel for more videos from HHN30. Enjoy…

As one might expect, entering back into the real world can be hard. She moves into an apartment, and tries to get back to a regular routine. However being alone is just the start of her problems.   Soon enough she starts hearing some knocking, but isn’t sure where it’s coming from. It can’t be from her apartment so she starts going around the building listening for the sound. It moves from knocking to crying, and she’s convinced that there’s a woman in trouble. Molly calls the police, and basically harasses the  neighb

Starring: Daniel Stisen, Olga Kent, and Daniel Nehme Directed by: Fansu Nije Written by: Fansu Nije, Daniel Stisen, and Andreas Vasshaug   The “Last Man Down” means he must have put up a fight and that’s what John Wood (Daniel Stisen) does.

Times have changed and that’s shown on what was Glenda’s (Nia Roberts) family farm. Now her husband Gwyn (Julian Lewis Jones) and her have made a lot of changes to it like making a modern house, and letting energy companies basically destroy the land. They live there with their two sons, one of which is a drug addict, and the other obsessed with being a triathlete. Certainly a family that has been taken in by modern riches, and trying to put the past behind them in more ways than one.   Part of their new way of life is Glenda hosting dinners for people,

Starring: Michael Lombardi, Marc Menchaca, and Joseph Gatt Directed by: Samuel Gonzalez Jr and Bridget Smith Written by: Darren Geare and Jeff Allen Geare A Screamfest Film Festival Review   This movie makes it clear that in life you’re one of the “The Retaliators,” or be prepare to be run over time and time again.

Starring: Laila Lockhart Kraner, Steven Grayhm, and Rudy Reyes Directed and written by: Steven Grayhm   “The Secret of Sinchanee” is another secret that should have been kept hidden. Speaking of secrets, Will (Steven Grayhm) seems to have some of them, or he’s just an odd person. That can be understandable after surviving a double homicide when he was younger. While he tries to put that behind him, it proves difficult when he’s forced to return home after his father’s death.    His return home is also at a bad time because there has been a murder of a mother and daughter in the area.
