Not the way I wanted to kick off my favorite season of the year. Despite the low expectations of a quarantined October, The Prodigy made me feel even worse. Alas, I am excited to be released from my chains yet again to bring you horror movie madness all month long with 2020’s incarnation of the MASSACRE MARATHON!!!
The past two years I’ve held onto my marathon results, waiting for the perfect time to unleash my opinions into the putrid air of this hellscape we call home. Well, I no longer prolong…err…! Each night I will be bringing forth, in addition to the main feature, not one but TWO bonus reviews from the not so distant past. These extra musings will most likely only be snippets due to time constraints, but in the future I plan on giving the love and attention deserved to those films that are lucky enough to be rewatched.
No series has become a yearly genre staple like the Paranormal Activity series since the Saw collection. They are making these faster than I can bother to watch them, as was the case last year when I didn’t get to Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, so I made a point to catch it this time around. Although it is the fifth entry in the series it was not assigned a number in the title because of it being a spin-off of Paranormal Activity 3 and not an official entry. Many people are have already been sick of this franchise for a long time now but something about the formula used in these films keeps bringing me back for more. I just want you to know (as with most movies) I went into this one with no predetermined judgments.
