• Film Review – What Still Remains (2018)

    I was tempted late of one afternoon to finally take the Bird Box plunge and see what all the hullaballoo was about, but I could not overcome a mild trepidation at the 124 minute running time… and then when I heard that a few people had taken to wearing...
  • Film Review – New Year’s Evil (1980)

    The Doctor apologizes for his recent hiatus from the Tuesday Night Cigar Club scene.

    Like a line from that old Grateful Dead dirge, what a long, strange trip it’s been. After much waxing nostalgic, we have reached the final chapter in our Halloween retrospective.

  • Review – Halloween H20 (1998) & Joya de Nicaragua Cuatro Cinco cigar

    Perhaps only a scant three years had passed since the last Halloween film hit cinema screens, but H20 was released during a new era as far as horror movies were concerned: the post-Scream era, a world that includes the Jump Scare*, tongue-in-cheek humor, and a new brand of savvy...
  • Review – Halloween 6 (1995) & Florida Sun Grown cigar

  • Review – Halloween 5 (1989) & Liga Privada Nasty Fritas cigar
