31 Weeks to Halloween: The Recap

Back on March 28th - seven months ago - we began our Halloween countdown with a little project we called 31 Weeks to Halloween. Together with our complete 30 movie film collection of Universal Monster movies, we've spent every Saturday for the last seven months watching, absoring, and reviewing all of the classic Universal Monster movies that were released over a twenty five year period from 1931 to 1956. We checked out all of the classics like Frankenstein, Dracula, the Invisible Man, the Wolf Man, The Mummy, The Bride of Frankenstein, the Creature From the Black Lagoon, and even the Phantom of the Opera. We dove pretty deep into the iconic roles played by Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff, Lon C

The Amityville Harvest

Just in time for Halloween next week, a new Amityville horror flick has recently hit streaming services and even though it has almost nothing to do with the notorious home itself, The Amityville Harvest is actually perfect for your holiday horror viewing party! If you like your horror with some creepy villains, some silly victims and some predictable-yet-wicked twists, The Amityville Harvest is going to - at the very least - entertain you during its hour and a half runtime. But if hearing "Amityville" in the name makes you think you're getting a film even remotely similar to a haunted house flick, unfortunately you'd be mistaken because even though the movie takes place in a creepy funeral p

31 Weeks to Halloween: The Creature Walks Among Us (1956)

After nearly seven months worth of Saturdays being dedicated to the classic Universal Monster horror movies - as part of our 31 Weeks to Halloween countdown - we have finally arrived at the final film in our countdown as well as the final film in the classic series. While our countdown has only lasted seven months worth of weekends, the films we've been reviewing each week were released over a 24 year period, all leading up to one final film: The Creature Walks Among Us. Released in 1956, the film once again brought back Ricou Browning, who played the underwater scenes of the Gill-Man in all of the films. "All of the films" being this films two predecessors: Creature From the Black Lagoon an

Ouija Craft

Just in time for Halloween comes a brand new indie film cleverly titled Ouija Craft that combines elements of The Craft and any of the dozens of Ouija films out there. We've taken a look at quite a few mash-up style movies over the last few years and they always seem to be totally hit or miss, but this new project by writer and director Aaron Mirtes honestly has to be one of the better (if not the best) ones we've seen; while it may take its inspiration from other films, Ouija Craft is entirely its own entity and a beast of creativity. It blends horror and fantasy equally well and will seriously shock you with the amount of amazing special effects and even twists you may not see coming. It t

31 Weeks to Halloween: Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy (1955)

Out of the depths of an ancient tomb echoes a sound that shakes the world... with laughter! Halloween is so close we can feel it everywhere we go. It's another Saturday in October and we're one step closer to the big day, so you know what that means: we're checking out one of our final Universal Monster movies. As we inch closer, the reality is beginning to set in that next week is our final monster review, and it's a bittersweet feeling. But before we get ahead of ourselves, we have this week's hilarious movie to talk about - and if we're talking about a funny Universal Monsters movie, it has to be an Abbott and Costello film, right?! Right - this week, we're checking out the 1955 classic A

Halloween Party

With the best holiday of the year just three and a half weeks away, it's time to start thinking about all things Halloween: costumes, candy, haunted houses and of course, parties! But in the fantastic new horror flick HALLOWEEN PARTY - written and directed by Jay Dahl - it's not quite the party you're thinking of! It's another film bringing horror stories to life utilizing modern day technology - which is something we've been seeing a lot of with films like Host, Countdown, and APParition - but this one is different in the way it brings its terror: it's in the form of a Halloween themed meme! Going into the film I wasn't totally sure what to expect but as the credits began to roll, one thing

31 Weeks to Halloween: Revenge of the Creature (1955)

Panic grips a city as the Monster strikes again... and again! Well, well, well... we have officially made it into October, the season of spook. And what's a better way to spend the very first Saturday of the month than with this week's 31 Weeks to Halloween countdown feature: REVENGE OF THE CREATURE. As we take yet another step closer to Halloween, we checked out the follow-up to 1954's Creature From The Black Lagoon which takes place shortly after the first film and while it tells a bit of a different story, the overall theme of the film is the same. Revenge of the Creature was directed by Jack Arnold and while they brought in new talent Tom Hennesy to portray the Gill-Man on land, the fant

Conjuring The Devil

Loyal followers of Soulless Cult know that we are not shy about our love for evil nun horror flicks; they make some of the best villains as they turn away from the light and into an evil path of darkness. Since the release of The Nun two years ago, we've seen an influx of evil nun movies - with none of them being outstanding but they are at least entertaining - and this week we add another to the list: Conjuring The Devil. And while I sincerely wanted to enjoy this newly released flick, I honestly struggled so hard to make it through the films exhausting two hour runtime - so much so, I had to split my viewing into two separate sessions just to keep from falling asleep. When you release a fi
