When I first saw John Wick, it immediately became my favorite action movie. Then I saw Chapter 2 and THAT immediately became my favorite. I have now seen this twice in the theater, my first time ever to do that for any film. Chapter 2 is an incredibly worthy sequel, better than the first, and has moved to number 1 in my all-time favorites. Spectacular film.

Mark my words, this will be the horror movie of the year for both critics and fans alike! This was an excellent movie. For being a little over 2 hours long, it was paced pretty great too. No lags. The characters were loveable, the gore was great, the setting and story all too real. I can't wait for Chapter 2!

Jigsaw (2017)
This is my all-time favorite franchise so when I heard they were coming out with a new movie after 7 years I was so excited I could barely stand the wait! It was definitely worth it though as I feel they tried something new and different but still stuck to the same Saw we all know and love.

Pixels (2015)
This was a bit of an unexpected hit for me. I do like Kevin James, but Adam Sandler is hit or miss and don't care about the rest of the cast. Surprisingly funny, with excellent graphics. More action than comedy which I like.

Brake (2012)
You have to have a very compelling story and a great actor to be able to carry off literally a one-man movie such as this one. The story was suspenseful and it was a twist within a twist. I enjoyed it very much.

This is technically a re-watch but I haven't seen it for at least a decade so I'm counting it as new. This is an awesome franchise and a great way to start it! Great acting, great action, intense plot. All around fantastic movie.

Hellraiser (1987)
What a totally awesome and unique horror movie. I can definitely say I've never seen anything like it, but in a good way. I can't believe it took me so long to finally get around to it!
Heather's rating:
I just really loved this movie! It was super fun and strangely cute. The clowns were fun to watch and their methods of death were fun. I long for a sequel!
Heather's rating:

This was kind of predictable in that I knew even before I watched the movie where this was going to go. It was still quite a fun ride, if just a little bit slow to start off. Overly grotesque but highly entertaining. I recommend.
Heather's rating:

An excellent movie all around although I really was very disappointed by the last few minutes. I thought it was going so great. Would have given it a complete 10/10 but had to take off for the lackluster ending.
Heather's rating:
When I first watched the movie, I thought it was good but not great. As I think about it months after I watched it, it is much better than I originally thought. Danielle Harris is excellent in this and the overall tone throughout the movie is great.

Absolutely incredible. Wow! For Norway's first ever disaster movie, they set the bar insanely high! Beautiful imagery, enjoyable characters, very gripping and tense.
Heather's rating:
This is one of those movies that just has a great story period. No matter who does it, it can hardly be a failure. I had already seen the original and was excited for this one to come out. The train looked glamorous and like I said, I already loved the story. Great acting, beautiful scenery as well!

Such a fun little compilation of horror shorts, I don't think there's a bad one in the bunch. Most anthology type movies of late are hit or miss, and this one is a definite hit! Nice blend of comedy and horror.

I know a lot of people don't like this movie in the series, but I absolutely loved it and it's my first time ever seeing it. I loved Nyah and I thought she and Ethan had great chemistry. I wish she had come back for the third movie.
Heather's rating:
People who added this item 565 Average listal rating (395 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.5
This picks off immediately after the first one and unlike the other movies in the series, it has the same tone as the first. It is very unsettling and creepy at times, but that's what made it a great movie!

Killjoy 3 (2010)
Full Moon movies are either very very very bad or so bad they are very very fun. This falls in the latter. One of the few FMF hits and decent effects all things considered.
Heather's rating:
People who added this item 320 Average listal rating (242 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 6.6
This was everything the trailer made it out to be, although I found myself having a hard time liking the main character. It's a very unique premise though and I give it props for trying to be different, yet still the same slashers we know and love.

People who added this item 146 Average listal rating (111 ratings) 5.7 IMDB Rating 6.1
Oh man what an absolute fun ride this was! I loved the relentless gore, and the musical montage near the end was brilliant! Can't wait to own.

A little slow, not much character involvement and virtually no gore. I still enjoyed it for what it was though. I am incredibly confused by the ending though, I feel an important scene was cut out as it doesn't make much sense to me.

People who added this item 450 Average listal rating (292 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.2

Um...wow. That's all one can really say after viewing this. Most people I encounter either love or hate this movie, there's no middle ground. Personally I loved it. Visually stunning, acting pretty good, phenomenal music, shocking ending. And to think, I just watched this for Keanu...

Sinister (2012)
A quite atmospheric and tense movie. Throughout it all, you're never really sure exactly what is going on. But it's very well executed, and it is very gripping.ย 
Heather's rating:
I always really enjoy Hallmark movies, at least overall but I especially love their mysteries based off cozy books (which happen to be my favorites). The Gourmet Detective movie series is my favorite of theirs as Dylan and Brooke have excellent chemistry. This one was super fun.

Zombie's dialogue is truly dreadful, but once you get past the zillion curse words in a row and get right into the action it's pretty dang good. I still prefer the original by far, but this is definitely a great way to do a remake in terms of violence. Very gritty.
Heather's rating:
People who added this item 280 Average listal rating (189 ratings) 5.2 IMDB Rating 5.2
This was a very unique story (Hellraiser is in general) but I loved where they were going with this one and Angelique is my favorite character of the series. I wish we had seen more of her.

Wish Upon (2017)
This was a good movie despite most having gone into it with low expectations. I liked the ending a lot and I'm really excited to see the Director's Cut. I wish people had given it more of a chance.
Heather's rating:
I thought this was a super fun movie for what it was. I do wish more of it actually happened in Vegas as that was some fun and colorful scenery and I liked the camera work. But overall it was everything I expected it to be and a great popcorn movie.
Heather's rating:
People who added this item 420 Average listal rating (290 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 5.5
This was a fairly decent movie and I really love Terry Ferrell. It was a little slow to start but I liked the final minutes of the movie, it really made up for the lackluster beginning.
Heather's rating:
People who added this item 396 Average listal rating (283 ratings) 4.7 IMDB Rating 5.4
This was...okay. Better than average I guess, but not really everything I expected it to be. There was some weird humor throughout and the tone of the movie didn't really match what I thought it should. I loved the effects and the acting was good. There were SOME funny moments, but they just felt out of place to me.
Heather's rating:
People who added this item 101 Average listal rating (73 ratings) 3.5 IMDB Rating 4.2
To be frank, I think most people voted this movie low and/or didn't like it because of the silly name. Which in itself to do such a thing is silly. I actually really liked this movie, it was less teen PG-13 than I thought it would be and the end is pretty dark. People should give it more of a change.
Heather's rating:
I've got a soft spot for Garfield and a very soft spot for JLH, so these two things combined make for a fun time. This was a pretty decent movie, kids or not.

Exposed (2016)
I went into this movie probably like everyone else thinking it was a Keanu cop drama but it most definitely was not. For my own personal reasons I was thrown off by the constant switching between subtitles and not, the movie was edited very poorly (which I know now that this was Lionsgate's doing), but for the most part I followed along pretty easy. I gave it a higher score for the nice way it wrapped up at the end. And Keanu.

I wasn't a super fanatic of the previous Ring movies, though I did think they were good. But I still was excited to see this. It was a little disappointing, eventhough I still actually liked it.

Heather's rating:
Again, Danielle Harris is excellent but this one falls just a little bit short of 4 for me. I really, really loved the car chase scene in the woods - beautifully done with great visuals and music but the story was kinda dull and not that believable.
Heather's rating:
Not as good as I was hoping for. Just felt kinda weird and not canon. The ambiance was good though.
Heather's rating:
People who added this item 80 Average listal rating (52 ratings) 5 IMDB Rating 4.8
This was a pretty good thriller with some surprisingly good gore, but it did start off awful slow and there was some weird stuff going on in the end with the 2 main characters but other than that pretty solid.
Heather's rating:
People who added this item 87 Average listal rating (58 ratings) 4.2 IMDB Rating 5.3
This movie was just kind of there...it wasn't awful, the gore was pretty good, the story mediocre. It had potential to expand even more with the ending but it wasn't really explained.
Heather's rating:
People who added this item 516 Average listal rating (379 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7.1
Don't Breathe (2016)
Really, really not what I was expecting or hoping it to be. After much hype, I was so excited to finally watch it and was more than a little disappointed by the ending.
Heather's rating:
People who added this item 129 Average listal rating (93 ratings) 3.8 IMDB Rating 3.5
Did anyone need this movie? No. Is it worth a watch? Only if you're a fan of the Leprechaun series, and/or campy B horror movies as I am. I strongly prefer 3 to this one but it is still fun and Leprechaun's quips are fun as always.
Heather's rating:
People who added this item 850 Average listal rating (577 ratings) 5.3 IMDB Rating 5.8
Just not my favorite. I was bored honestly.
Heather's rating:
Unfortunately this was such a huge letdown for me. It had such great potential. If it had just focused more on the action than the story of the rookie cop, it would have been awesome. Great style, it just fell flat.
Heather's rating:
People who added this item 559 Average listal rating (369 ratings) 4.2 IMDB Rating 3.9
I remember this being my favorite Halloween movie aside from the original but when I watched it again this year it definitely is nowhere near. Not as good as I remembered.
Heather's rating:
People who added this item 19 Average listal rating (12 ratings) 4.2 IMDB Rating 4.4
This movie wasn't at all what I had expected or hoped for either, but more in the sense that the plot is different than what we are led to believe. The concept of a haunted house built out of crime scenes sounded awesome and I love me some Jessica Lowndes but the story fell very flat and I didn't like the buildup to get to the haunted house. It could have been so much more.


Heather's rating:
This was...just kinda okay. Nothing special, nothing makes it stand out but it wasn't exactly completely awful either. Not worthy to have the "last summer" name attached though.

Halloween II (2009)
Definitely not as good as Zombie's first. In fact, it felt like a totally different movie. I did not like the ~dreamy~ sequences as I thought it was just an excuse to have Sheri Moon in yet another Zombie production. It also added nothing to the story. I wish it had more of the gritty violence 2007's had.
Heather's rating:
I like "bad" B horror movies, and I thought this looked super fun. But we didn't see enough of the ghost Ribcage and I wasn't really sure why Emma was targeted. It could have been a great bad movie, but there was a lot to be desired after I watched it.
Heather's rating:
Overall a pretty pointless, unnecessary, and dull movie. When the action is happening, it's pretty entertaining. But the characters leave much to be desired, and I don't care about any of them. Also awfully acted.
Heather's rating:
People who added this item 97 Average listal rating (70 ratings) 4.3 IMDB Rating 3.8
No. No. No. So awful I couldn't stand it. Leprechaun as usual was great and funny but everything (literally) else about this movie sucked.
Heather's rating:
People who added this item 214 Average listal rating (145 ratings) 5.3 IMDB Rating 5.5
It has been months and I still have not even finished this movie. I will eventually...but what I saw of it I absolutely hated because it was so boring and didn't seem anything like the previous 4 movies.
Heather's rating:
People who added this item 227 Average listal rating (112 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 5.6
High-Rise (2016)
I don't understand it, I don't like it and it's mind-numbingly boring. Next.
Heather's rating:

I'm going to be watching 50 brand-new (to me) movies in 2017. And here they are.
