0-3… Nope. Never. Don’t waste your time.

3-5… Might watch again. To make fun of it.

5-7… Some good things. Decent if you’re in the mood.

7-8… Would watch. Maybe some hesitation.

8-10… Continuous loop. Watch every week. Es perfecto!

Swamp of Movies


Can we just admit that low-budget movies are often better? This one definitely is. I wish I understood the ending.

A Quiet Place–9/10

Jim from the Office finds the only thing more terrifying than Dwight… Super fast, super freaky monsters


Fairly predictable movie, but the last 20 minutes makes it one of the best.


Super long, super intense, super confusing… super great.

The Boy–8.5/10

Similar to Orphan, it’s your basic scare with a huge twist.


Terrifying, and one of the best horror movies I’ve ever seen. Beware the tapes.


The first film in a new series; possibly the best horror movie of this decade. A must-see.


Crazy amount of suspense; fitting finish. 0% cliche.

Let Me In–8.5/10

A movie with Chloe Moretz that is touching, scary, and ultimately memorable.

The Others–8.5/10

A scary movie about a haunted mansion… or is it? ALSO! This movie literally has the best ending ever. I never saw it coming. SO GOOD!!! I’m tired.

Murder on the Orient Express (2017)–8.4/10

Not scary? Yeah, kind of is. The book was entertaining and thoughtful, the movie keeps most of the same ideas, and has some gnarly accents, dude. Surf’s up. Wrong movie.

The Crazies–8.4/10

The Purge: Western Style… with lots more blood. And guns. And a great sheriff. You should watch it, but not if you’re out in the country on a farm. No way.

13 Cameras– 8.3/10

This is one of those movies you’ll never forget. Check for cameras.

I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House– 8.1/10

I’m a sucker for older-set, gothic horror films. This is one of the best. I love the ambiguous ending.

Conjuring 2–8/10

Not quite the same as the first, but with more touching moments and an always-suspenseful ending this one doesn’t let down!

Carrie (2013)–8/10

Lots of blood and scares in one of Stephen King’s best stories.

The Amityville Horror (2005)–8/10

The slow descent to insanity and a house that won’t let you leave alive.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006)–7.5/10

Chainsaws, blood, and man this movie is so gruesome it’s frightening and I never wanna go to Texas or drive a car or eat meat ever again. Also, Matt Bomer.

The Shining–7.5/10

Definitely a classic, very slow for the beginning part of the movie; climax makes up for it. ❤ the setting. Mazes are creepy.

Scary Stories TO Tell In the Dark–7.2/10

One unique death, great first hour, but not so great finish. Movie tickets are expensive.

Insidious 2– 7/10

Better than the first, and keeps the scariness factor high.

What Lies Beneath–7/10

Harrison Ford, a mysterious lake, and lots of blood. What could be better? For real, it’s Harrison Ford.

The Curse of La Llorona–7/10

Not as good as the Conjuring; way better than the Nun. Very frightening, but could have used a few breaks from the action.

Dead Silence–7/10

A surprisingly good, very mysterious horror movie. And the clown doll is the worst. I’m tired.

Cabin in the Woods–7/10

One of the more intriguing horror movies, complete with its own conspiracies.

Friday the 13th–7/10

Good movie, I can see why it’s a classic, great death scenes really even by today’s standards, got to meet Jason’s momma!

Insidious 3–7/10

Creepy movie, solid horror, with lots of jump scares and a good story line.

It: Chapter Two (2019)–6.9/10

Bullies aren’t scary. Clown isn’t scary. Somehow, it’s better than the first.


This better not be the final Conjuring. Worth a second watch. Few too many cliches.

It: Chapter One (2017)–6.6/10

Not great. Way too long. Bullies are good. Town is good. Clown is funny.

The Babadook–6.5/10

I understand why this movie was so acclaimed, but it never felt right to me. Unlike Cabin in The Woods, it was ambiguous in a not-awesome way and a let-down.

Insidious– 6.5/10

Interesting movie, good scares, but a lot better because of the sequels.

The Ring–6.5/10

A scary girl from a well and lots of mystery… and a killer video tape. Lots better than it sounds. Solid end.

Sinister 2–6/10

Scary like the first, but with a much different ending.

(Guest) Cult of Chucky–6/10

Not scary. Maybe watch for a good laugh. Dolls are fun.


A prequel to Conjuring, this one is more Satan-centered but still freaky. Like the other two in the series (see above), a must-watch.

He’s Out There–6/10

A movie with a lot of good threads, but they never tied together in a fitting way.

The Town That Dreaded Sundown (2014)–6/10

One of the better sequels/remakes I’ve seen, but not great. Nice try at a twist.


Good movie, interesting plot, just too many jokes for my tastes.


Saw right before the Nun at a drive-in. Both crazy boring. This was at least… trying to be weird, and kind of did that.


Not the best movie ever, but a solid film all the same. You’ll never forget Eli.

The Nun–5.5/10

Just… really not exciting. Pretty boring. Maybe it’s because I had high expectations, because of the Conjuring director attachment.

Taking of Deborah Logan–5/10

One of the weirdest possession movies I’ve ever seen… Little too weird…


Um… very graphic movie, and not a story line, so yeah. A two.


Waste of money, with a bad Santa that has elf clown puppet demonic crap things.
