I will be honest with you sports fans and tell you that I love American Psycho. I have a Patrick Bateman statue in my bathroom. I have seen this film multiple times throughout the years and yet I continue to have no idea if this film is supposed to be in the comedy genre or ...
I love films that make us cry, I love films that make us laugh, but horror films for some reason rarely resonate with me. I just am not a fan of red karo and absolutely gratuitous bloodbaths built solely to give the actors a messy wardrobe. So when horror films [...]
