I'm a massive Alfred Hitchcock fan and Psycho is one of my favorite films. The idea of making a sequel to that classic film twenty some odd years later is a fascinating concept to me. Does this much later sequel hold a candle to the original?

"After twenty-two years of psychiatric care, Norman Bates attempts to return to a life of solitude, but the specters of his crimes - and his mother - continue to haunt him."

Looking at another 2020 release today, Invisible Man is the next adaptation of one of the Universal Monster characters. After the failure that was the Tom Cruise The Mummy, Blumhouse takes a shot at a low budget take on one of the classic monsters.

The Guest was a movie that I was longing to see and always seemed to miss it when it was streaming. This year however the stars finally aligned and The Guest hit Netflix just when I needed it most.

Today's episode of Shocktober 2020 features the first movie that actually came out in 2020. Just one of the few that actually made it out this year. The trailer and reaction caught my attention, but is it a good horror film?

I've been open about my love for Kevin Smith and his work, But Red State was one of his movies that had just missed me through the years. I had seen bits and pieces of Red State before but I've always wanted to get through the whole film, and Shocktober was the perfect excuse.

"Set in Middle America, a group of teens receive an online invitation for sex, though they soon encounter fundamentalists with a much more sinister agenda."

Written and Directed By: Kevin Smith

In the tradition of using Shocktober to check off movies that I missed, Don't Breathe is actually one of the first movies to make the cut. I really enjoyed The Evil Dead remake and this director blew me away so much that I knew I would watch any horror movie he made after. 

"Hoping to walk away with a massive fortune, a trio of thieves break into the house of a blind man who isn't as helpless as he seems."

It's hard to cover a whole month of horror films and not review at least one zombie movie. A short film turned into a whole feature, Cargo at least takes a unique spin on the genre. The main horror here is time, rather than the zombies or desperate humans, although they are there too.

The second Shocktober movie for 2020 is a late 2019 addition. A film called We Summon the Darkness. It's not rare for heavy metal to sneak into a horror film, but is this movie metal enough?

"Three best friends embark on a road trip to a heavy-metal show, where they bond with three aspiring musicians and head off to one of the girls' country home for an after-party."

Directed by: Marc Meyers

It's the beginning of spooky season! My favorite season leading up to my favorite holiday. Every October I attempt to watch and review a horror film for every day in October. I call it Shocktober (did not make that up to be clear!) Today we start with the first film of the month, the 2019 film Ready or Not.

"A bride's wedding night takes a sinister turn when her eccentric new in-laws force her to take part in a terrifying game."
