Squirm (1976), the story of the worms march to the sea

Ghost Stories, a movie that has some Martin Freeman

Just some. Ghost Stories gave me a bit of deja vu.  I may have seen it before, but that might just be a figment of my imagination. I would opt to forget it again, but I don’t want to risk … Continue reading

The Valley of Gwangi – or Parque Jurásico Vaquero

Without Name deserves a better name, something like Gun Anam

It’s good ‘ol St. Paddy’s Day, and Syfy is running a Leprechaun marathon.  Of course, I’ve been catching some of that as I sit bundled up waiting for the HVAC guy to come fix my heater. Believe me, 57F is way … Continue reading
