Horror Movie Review: Glorious (2022)

Glorious is a 2022 horror film directed by Rebekah McKendry. The film stars Ryan Kwanten, J.K. Simmons & Sylvia Grace Crim.

Not long after getting into this movie, I could sense the low-budget vibes. You continue to see that throughout, but it certainly does not ruin the film. In fact, I feel like the director did a great job despite the low-budget.

Glorious is pretty absurd and quite comical. The whole premise involves a man stuck in a rest stop bathroom, talking to an ancient God through a Glory Hole. I feel like I may have enjoyed it a lot more if I smoked weed beforehand.

It has enough mystery throughout to keep you watching and then wondering what the hell is happening? In the end, there is a pretty cool twist that I did not see coming that helped to bump up my score of the film. Overall, I was entertained throughout the movie but would not give this a second watch.

HFH Score: 5.8

Horror Movie Review: What Josiah Saw

What Josiah Saw is a 2021 horror film directed by Vincent Grashaw and written by Robert Alan Dilts. The film stars Robert Patrick, Nick Stahl, Scott Haze, Kelli Garner, Jake Weber & Tony Hale. The movie is a Shudder Original.

What Josiah Saw has received positive reviews, garnering a 6.1 rating on IMDB and a 90% score on Rotten Tomatoes. I was a little less fond of the film.

This movie has a slow burning feel to it that can either keep you engaged or make you totally lose interest. I was in the middle of that spectrum. At times I would lose focus and have to get myself back on track. Other times I was curious as how the plot would continue to develop.

The film has a dark and dreary vibe throughout which fits perfectly to the plot. The acting in What Josiah Saw made the movie more enjoyable for me as the top stars turned in top-notch performances. Nevertheless, by the time I finished watching the film I came away unsatisfied.

There were a few creepy moments but overall, the horror factor was lacking. My general consensus after watching was that it made me feel dirty and depressed.

HFH: 4.8

Horror Character Analysis: The Creeper

In this edition of Horror Character Analysis, we explore a mysterious but terrifying horror monster. In 2001, a new horror character was born with the film Jeepers Creepers. In that movie, we learn of a monster that feeds on humans every 23rd spring, for 23 days. That character is known as The Creeper. We would also see the Creeper again in the 2003 sequel and again in Jeepers Creepers 3 in 2017.

The Creeper is one of the all-time enigmas of the horror genre. Without knowing much, it is a very hard character to analyze. There are so many questions to ask when it comes to it. What is it’s past? How old is it? What the hell is it? Why the hell does it love the Jeepers Creepers song so much?

Despite all those legitimate questions, we can draw a few conclusions. It has unbelievable athletic ability & strength. It is extremely intelligent. It also has a diet that would make Hannibal Lecter very proud, although eating only 23 years may be a bit on the unsafe side. Perhaps, that’s why The Creeper is so violent. Its hangry!

All jokes aside, The Creeper is one horror villain I would not want to run into. It has the ability to run fast and also fly which would make it difficult to evade it. At the same time, you’re also not safe in a car. The Creeper’s souped-up truck with the license plate “BEATNGU” can travel at extremely high speeds making it impossible to outrun. As mentioned earlier, it has incredible strength. Not only that, but The Creeper is also equipped with daggers and throwing stars.

We also know that The Creeper is extremely hard to kill due to all of the reasons mentioned above, and its ability to regenerate when it eats human organs.

Although much is not known about The Creeper from the previous three films, perhaps we will learn more about it soon. The latest installment of the Jeppers Creepers franchise will release on September 19th, 2022 with Jeepers Creepers: Reborn. While this will be a reboot, I hope it provides us with more answers instead of questions.

Either way, I am excited to get a new look at the creature that terrified me for the first time over 20 years ago.

The Black Phone Stories by Joe Hill: Every Story Ranked

I recently completed reading “The Black Phone Stories” by Joe Hill. This book is a collection of short stories. While not all of the stories are filled with horror, most do have a paranormal theme to them. The name of the books author may not sound familiar but he is related to someone very well known in the horror genre. Joe Hill is actually the son of iconic author, Stephen King. He changed his name to Joe Hill out of a desire to make his own mark as an author.

The book was originally published under the name 20th Century Ghosts in 2005. Newer editions were published recently to coincide with the hit movie, The Black Phone, starring Ethan Hawke. You can read Habitat For Horror’s review of the film here: https://habitatforhorror.com/2022/06/24/movie-review-the-black-phone-2021/

I purchased the book because of my interest in The Black Phone, so I was excited to see all the other short stories inside. I don’t want to give too much analysis and spoil the stories for anyone who has not yet read the book. I will, however, provide a ranking of the stories from my point of view. These are ranked in order from favorite to least favorite.

HORROR COLLECTIBLES: Halloween (2018) – 7″ Scale Action Figure – Ultimate Michael Myers

The latest addition to the HabitatForHorror collection is the Ultimate Michael Myers 7″ scale action figure from NECA.

Description from NECAonline.com: “Based on his appearance in the thrilling new Halloween movie, this all-new Michael stands over 7” tall and has received the Ultimate treatment, with over 25 points of articulation and tons of accessories. The Ultimate Michael Myers figure comes with 2 heads, knife, hammer, jack o’ lantern, interchangeable hands and more. Comes in display-friendly deluxe window box packaging with opening flap.”

As a horror collector, I realized that I did not have enough Michael Myers items in my collection. Besides that, what sold me on this action figure was two of the accessories, the victims head and the light up pumpkin. The victims head gives the action figure set a gruesome, violent vibe fitting to Michael Myers. The light up pumpkin to me is symbolic. With its cut heart shaped eyes, it universally represents the love that many of us have for the Halloween Holiday. However, for the people of Haddonfield, Illinois it’s a horrifying reminder that the boogeyman is close by, lurking in the shadows.

Horror Movie Review: Hard Ride To Hell (2010)

Hard Ride To Hell is a 2010, straight to video horror/action movie. The movie was directed by Penelope Buitenhuis and written by Matthew Chernov, David Rosiak, and the forementioned Penelope Buitenhuis.

The film stars Katharine Isabelle, Miguel Ferrer, Brent Stait, Laura Mennell, Brendan Penny, Brandon Jay McLaren & Sebastian Gacki.

Hard Ride To Hell 2010 Horror Film

I picked this movie up years ago on DVD. The description on the back of the case intrigued me enough to make the purchase. After taking it home and watching it I was surprisingly pleased.

I saw it laying around the house recently so I decided I would give it a second viewing. Sometimes when I watch a movie that I enjoyed for a second time, I end up not enjoying it nearly as much as the first time. I wasn’t sure what to expect this time around.

After watching again today, I realized that I enjoyed just as much as the first time. The plot is pretty cool and the characters overall turned in solid performances. The movie may fall more in the lines of an action film but also has a horror element which makes it my cup of tea. It’s nothing fancy but it entertained me, that’s all I ask for.

HFH Score: 6.5
