John Dies At The End – Quickie Review: 31 Nights Of Horror (2018) – Day 5

This movie could be described as the love child of H.P. Lovecraft, W.S. Burroughs and Harold Ramis, but instead it is the brain child of writer/director Don Coscarelli (Phantasm, The Beastmaster, Bubba Ho-Tepp). And it’s awesome. I went into this movie without knowing anything about it other than it was a Coscarelli movie. That was …

Howling, The – Quickie Review: 31 Nights Of Horror (2018) – Day 1
