Rogue One was flipping GREAT


Yeah, four and a half stars, easy.  There are flaws to be found, sure, but I'm not going into that or anything else.  I'd wager it will leave you more satisfied than Force Awakens. Avoid all the spoilers you can, and may the Force be with us.

EDIT:

Omigod I just watched this trailer and I feel like half the stuff in here wasn't actually in the movie.

All good things...


Wow, time flies.  For the better part of 12 years Horrorthon has been a fun part of my life.  Over the years I have spent the first hour of nearly every weekday scouring the internet to find fun things to generate conversation.  It has been a place for me to stay connected to everyone who has contributed to this site and it has been a terrific way to pass the time during downtime at work.  

For whatever reason, there has been a steep drop off in participation over the past couple years, especially this year.  Twelve years is a long stretch of time and I’m certain that the low traffic is due to life's responsibilities/priorities.  I also believe that these days people tend to stay connected through Facebook and other social outlets rather than Horrorthon.  Given that people are not really looking or posting on this blog any  longer I have made the decision to stop the upkeep of this site.  This doesn’t mean that the blog is ending; people are always welcome to post things, it simply means that I will no longer be making daily updates.  If people are interested in writing horror movie reviews during October I would be delighted and I would gladly do so myself (heck, there are 15 movies I didn’t bother to write reviews for this past October).  Thanks to all who have contributed over the years, it has been so much fun!
