Horror connoisseur Brett Buckner will be watching a Stephen King movie every night in October. Here’s his playlist (with a few to spare). Read his daily reviews at BrettBucknerTheDirt.wordpress.com
A group of filmmakers travel into the Amazon jungle in search of a lost tribe, and learn that some things should stay lost.
But I thoroughly enjoyed “Night of the Living Dead,” mainly because of the riotous music that made everything seem so dramatic.
"The Human Centipede" is the kind of film that horror fans watch just to see what all the chatter’s about … then hate themselves for it.
'The Cell' was every bit as psychotic and schizophrenic as its villain, played by the ever-twitchy and menacing Vincent D’Onofrio.
"If I have to watch scary movies during the day, does that still make me a daredevil?" asked my daughter. "Of course,” I said. “Being a daredevil is really about facing your fears. You can do that during the day or night.”
The book "The Tale of Tales" contained some of the earliest – and most grotesque – versions of classic fairy tales like “Cinderella” and “Sleeping Beauty.”
For all its creepy monsters, “Pan’s Labyrinth” is really about a little girl trying to make sense out of the real-life horrors she has been thrust into

In the movie, Pennywise steals the show. In fact, Pennywise is pretty much the only thing that makes “It” worth watching, especially during the parts of the movie that focus on the kids returning to Derry as grown-ups.
I remember when staying up late was a badge of honor, defying the body and mind’s need while testing the limits of my own endurance … just so I could watch “Porky’s” on Cinemax at 2 a.m.
Based on the only Stephen King book that I simply refused to read because the whole premise sounded just plain dumb: cell phone tones turning people into zombies.
I’ve never been and never will go to a psychic, palm-reader, phrenologist or anyone who predicts stuff. I even change the channel before Lee Corso grabs the headgear during the picks segment of College Gameday ‘cause people — especially kooky, old people — pretending to know the future fr…
By most accounts – including those of the surviving members of the family that lived in the farmhouse where the movie is set – “The Conjuring” is accurate.
I remember sneaking into an opening weekend screening of “The Blair Witch Project” with a date. We sat on the front row. Big mistake.
