What I Missed In 2015

A lot of horror from 2015 I just totally skipped because I was burned out on it. Cut to a year later, I’m all caught up. I started with The Babadook and heard so much praise but it fell flat for me. I wanted to see more of this entity with a top hat not a screaming child and a clueless mother.

Next was The VVitch (The Witch) it had me guessing all through the movie thinking if this girl is going insane or is the Devil was pulling the strings.

Lastly… It Follows I passed on thinking it’s another teen horror movie but was I wrong. It was so good, I watched it twice back to back. The one thing I found lacking when it came to the extras was input by the director, David Robert Mitchell. There’s an audio commentary but it’s from film critics. Which is nice to hear a bunch of people’s opinions but the director or writers input means a lot more to me… Meta. So… two out of three isn’t bad.

Roseanne: Tricks & Treats

In the wake of Fright Rags releasing their A Conner Halloween T-shirt I went back and watched Roseanne: Tricks & Treats and wow those Halloween themed episodes hold up. I remember watching them in their first run and being excited watching episode BOO and seeing Roseanne and family trying to scare one another and the trick or treaters. The gags in that episode were great. Dan as a mad scientist with an ax through his forehead and the voice “Welcome to the Tunnel of Terror” when DJ answers the door gets me laughing every time.

And if you don’t know what Roseanne: Tricks & Treats is allow me to explain, if you will… This DVD is a collection housing eight Halloween themed episodes from the Tv series Roseanne. (Check out the episode listing at the bottom)

As for any DVD extras, you do have a picture in picture commentary track with Roseanne. Shedding light on Trick Me Up! Trick Me Down.
