It's Movie Time!


Part of what I love about Spooky Season is watching scary movies.  With the weather growing colder and the nights getting darker much earlier, it's the perfect time of year.  Since we've watched quite a few lately, I thought this warranted its own post.  

Daryl Dixon - AMC

I'll be the first to admit the last few seasons of The Walking Dead had me supporting the end of the series because I think they kind of fell flat.  I was unsure about this spin-off but let me be honest, this spin-off renewed my love affair with Daryl and the season ending episode - CLASSIC!  Can't wait to see what Season 2 brings but please, can they give this character a bath?  This promo shot is the cleanest he looks all season. All 6 episodes are now streaming.

Dark Harvest (2023) 
I have never read this book because I've heard it can be kind of slow but I did really enjoy the movie. Sawtooth Jack is pretty creepy and I liked the historical feel of it.  I figured out the twist pretty quickly but it didn't ruin my enjoyment of the movie.

HERD (2023)
This movie was a completed dud for me.  It was marketed as a film with tons of zombies (I mean, come on, it's called HERD) but it ended up being a love story with a side of zombies and a healthy dose of bigotry,  I'm not opposed to any of these (well, I am VERY opposed to bigotry so I hope you know what I'm trying to say) but it was NOT what I was expecting.  It may work for some people though so if you are interested, give it a try.

Creepshow Season 4 (2023)
I know that if you only get AMC, these are coming out week by week.  But on the AMC+ app, you can at least watch the first six episodes now.  We are about 3 episodes in and I am already enjoying this season more than the last one.  Each episode contains two tales and I will say the first episode is probably my all-time favorite ever.  "Twenty Minutes with Cassandra" is a must-watch and I never knew I could love a wine-drinking, philosophical killer rat so much in my life!

So there you have it.  I hope to do one more post like this before the month is out so let me know if it's something you enjoyed.

Happy Watching!


  1. Daryl Dixon is the best! Definitely my favorite character from Walking Dead. :D

  2. Okay, I am going to have to check out Daryl Dixon! He was the best part of TWD.

  3. I think I have the book Dark Harvest but I haven't read it yet. I would like to see Creepshow!

  4. I have to finish watching The Walking Dead. I think my library has all the DVDs. I didn't know there was a Daryl spin-off. 😯
