Halloween Movies - Found Footage

Halloween Watchlist – Found Footage

In my first installment of this year’s Halloween Watchlist, I recommended some funny horror films, and mentioned my love of found footage horror movies.

The Bray Road Beast – Review

The Bray Road Beast Directed by Seth Breedlove | Small Town Monsters When you think of Wisconsin, what immediately comes to mind? The Milwaukee Brewers and the Green Bay Packers?

Paranormal Investigator Finds Las Vegas Time Warp?

I try to keep an open mind about all things paranormal, but I initially approach everything from a more skeptical point of view.
