12/12 = The best Horror movie of the year! See it over and over. Buy it on Blue-Ray, download it and watch it over and over!
11/12 = One of the excellent Horror movies of the year. See it at the theater. Buy it on Blue-Ray or download it.
10/12 = The most frequently used score. It means the Horror Movie was good enough to pay to see it at the theaters. And since we love Horror movies, if they are well made, then you should!
9/12 = A great Horror Movie rental. You should see it in theaters, only if you are a dedicated Horror fan. Otherwise, it will make a great rental!
The 12 Nights Of Horror Movie Reviews
are a quick easy way to see what Horror Movies are worth watching at the theaters, on-demand, streaming or never, ever see it. Donster is a Horror movie fan, unlike most Critics, who are only out there to bash the Horror genre! You can trust the Monster!
My reviews are based on a (1-12) score out of 12 DARK MOONS.
"Get your own Donster The Monster T-shirt!"


8/12 = A solid rental Horror movie, or if you wait until it is streaming, it will be a great one to watch then.
7/12 = An OK Horror movie, but wait until it is streaming or on TV to watch.
6/12 = A So-So Horror movie that should only be watched if on a free platform and there is nothing but a Romance movie out there to watch!
5-1/12 = Don't bother to waist your time watching these Horror Movies, unless the only other option available to watch on the secluded island you live on is "Twilight," In which case, carry on and watch these first!
