It’s Alan here, the half of AOF that is definitely NOT a parent. We’ve mentioned on the show several times that parenting has proven to be a trending theme in our horror movies lately, but I was not expecting that it would pop up in all three films I saw this weekend.

Ok, this one was pretty obviously going to…Continue Reading “The Horror Of Parenting”

Michael Myers Halloween

In our inaugural year for Anatomy of Fear, we couldn’t NOT share our thoughts about one of the most important franchises in horror history. So where do we fall on these rankings? Alan’s Ranking Most of the films in this franchise I hadn’t seen in their entirety until a few weeks ago. The original I’ve seen a bunch of times, but the rest not so much. So take my opinion as that of someone that does not have the rose colored glasses of nostalgia to…Continue Reading “Alan and Brandon’s Obligatory Ranking of Halloween Franchise”

By: AnatomyBrandon My biggest surprise and biggest disappointment all in one night… I’ve struggled this year with having time to write reviews for films, but after my back to back viewing this evening, I feel as I have no choice because I was able to experience both my biggest surprise and my biggest disappointment of 2018 (so far) in just one night. As of writing this (27 April), I’ve been incredibly impressed with the caliber of film we’ve had so far. I was able to…Continue Reading “Review: 2018s Thelma and The Devil & Father Amorth”
