Black Christmas (2019) - A Christmas-Slasher Horror film Review By, Donster The Monster

9/12 DARK MOONS ​ A brand new take on the sorority slasher! ​ Certainly not a direct remake of the original classic 70's film we loved. This new version, written and directed by Sophia Takal, turned out to be less of a mysterious slasher film and more of a women's revenge story. For me, it was a bit obvious and the kills weren't brutal, surprising or scary enough to make it a Horror-Slasher film. But it had a fun revenge plot that you could ride with. ​ ​

Doctor Sleep - Dark Supernatural, Horror Movie Review By, Donster The Monster

11/12 DARK MOONS - This sequel truly shines! ​ Doctor Sleep will keep you wide awake all night! ​ I love it when a sequel uses a similar soundtrack and sound effects as the original! Heart Pumping... It keeps you in the feeling and flow of the same story and gives you some of those same terrifying chills as it did, before!  This film does so masterfully! Although Doctor Sleep is a sequel, mostly set decades later, it is more of a Dark Supernatural film, than a true Horror movie...

Joker - Horror Movie Review By, Donster The Monster

12/12 DARK MOONS ​- A psychotic masterpiece that's insanely good! ​ Joaquin Phoenix's portrayal of Joker, takes the villainous character to new brutal depths of  clown craziness. His performance of Arthur fleck's descent into madness is a thing of brutal beauty and a statement on the poor conditions of mental health in society. Be forewarned, this is not your typical Anti-hero or Super Villain story. The director, Todd Phillips, delivers a film that is a serious psychotic thriller. It cou

9/12 DARK MOONS Climbs out on June 14TH, 2019 The Ghoulest Film You'll See This Summer! ​ The Dead Don't Die zombie spoof film has a fantastic cast and very quirky script.

If you're a fan of the recent X-Men chapters you'll probably enjoy seeing this most recent installment that takes the Jean Grey character in a new and darker direction.

Hellboy (2019) - Horror Movie Review By, Donster The Monster

10/12 DARK MOONS - GO TO HELL! HELL YES! I do mean, Hellboy! ​ This movie is a darker, more horrific movie-version of the graphic novel. The original Ron Perlman film certainly didn't need to be remade, but the new take on it is well worth it for all of us Fantasy-Horror fans.  Director, Neil Marshall (The Descent) used some of his horror-filmmaking background to create some real cool scares and a moody atmosphere and hellish vision, that only a truly dark mind could bring out of Hell!
