Hello, my name is Heather and I'm a horrorholic. Specifically a slasher stan. I've been watching horror movies since I was a single digit year old and slashers are my favorite sub-genre of not only horror but any movies period. There's something very formulaic and familiar about them and they bring me inner peace. So with that said, I will be reviewing this movie from a slasher standpoint - if that makes sense to anyone at all.

There are two types of people in the world - those who don't love horror, and me. I don't need to clarify for anyone here that I'm a horror fanatic as if you visited this club or my profile ever, you'd know how much I love the genre. It is my favorite genre, no contest and it has been since I was 8 years old. Maybe even before that, but that's the age I remember becoming obsessed. So in all those years, I have seen a LOT of horror movies and I have also had many years to collect them.
Jigsaw is an American horror film directed by Michael and Peter Spierig and starring Tobin Bell, Laura Vandervoort, Matt Passmore, Callum Keith Rennie, Clé Bennett, and Hannah Emily Anderson. It is the eighth installment in the Saw franchise, picking up over a decade after the death of the eponymous Jigsaw killer during the police investigation of a new succession of murders that fit his modus operandi.
This review will contain NO spoilers for Jigsaw but might for Saw 1-7.
Please keep in mind that this is merely my opinion, and this will be almost strictly horror. You could say "What's Halloween without Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown?" and that's fine but also cliched and not horror. This is not a list of my favorite horror movies by any means either, just a list of great ones I think are fun to watch at Halloween time and give me that sense of Horrorween (my new favorite word btw). I have also included some horror television in here as well just for the short attention span people (aka me).

It's important to note that while this could be seen as a remake of the 1990 Miniseries, it's actually a re-adaptation of Stephen King's original book IT. So while I may reference the miniseries...
Wish Upon is a 2017 American supernatural horror film directed by John R. Leonetti, and starring Joey King, Ki Hong Lee, and Ryan Phillipe. It was released on July 14, 2017.
As a major massive horror fan, I think it's very important that we support the genre. To some people that's exclusive to one sub-genre but to others like me, that means everything. Now, that doesn't mean if you're not interested in something go see it anyway just because ~horror~. But I don't buy into the PG-13 horror is always bad belief that many seem to have. Not every horror movie is made for...
