Obscure Horror Flicks worth mentioning... and a few not worth mentioning.
I have a sneaky suspicion that a large number of horror films this year will be called “The ‘Hereditary’ of 2019”.  It’s only February and I have heard this lazy and inaccurate assessment being over used by uninventive and misguided self proclaimed critics and marketing companies. While this...
