Popcorn Frights, Night 7: Piercing (2018), Deadly Still (2018), and One Cut of the Dead (2018)

Sadly, all good things must come to an end, and Popcorn Frights wrapped up with one flawed but intriguing film followed by two that I had an absolute blast with.

First up...

Piercing (2018)

Popcorn Frights, Night 6: The Dark (2018), The Ranger (2018), and Cursed Seat (2018)

Last night was probably the most uneven night of Popcorn Frights, with only one of the three films shown really impressing me all that much.

Let's start...

The Dark (2018)

Popcorn Frights, Night 5: Wolfman's Got Nards (2018) and The Blob (1988)

It was '80s nostalgia night at Popcorn Frights last night, with the first film showing not being a horror film at all, but rather, a documentary about the 1987 cult classic The Monster Squad. The two films that followed, meanwhile, were a pair of '80s horror classics from director Chuck Russell, who was in attendance for a Q&A. The second of those films, A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, I'm happy to say still holds up exceptionally well as arguably the pinnacle of one of the decade's greatest franchises.

As for the other films...

Popcorn Frights, Night 4: Tigers Are Not Afraid (2018), St. Agatha (2018), Cold Skin (2018)

Night 4 of Popcorn Frights was probably the most consistent of the bunch so far, producing two very solid mainstream horror movies and one that, while lacking the others' wide appeal, was an out-and-out great one.

First, we start the night with the great one. Coming from Mexican filmmaker Issa López...

Popcorn Frights, Night 3: Boogeyman Pop (2018) and Framed (2018)

For the third night of Popcorn Frights, I unfortunately had to miss the first two movies shown due to prior commitments, but I was still able to make it to the Savor Cinema to catch the final two movies of the night. Both of them... were actually pretty good!

First, we have a microbudgeted punk-rock indie...

Popcorn Frights, Night 2: Summer of 84 (2018), Satan's Slaves (2017), What Keeps You Alive (2018), and The Farm (2018)

Night 2 of the Popcorn Frights Film Festival just took place, with an even bigger slate of films than the night before. Some hits, but also some misses.

To start, we have an '80s-styled throwback serial killer movie...
