[Review]—Rob Zombie's "The Munsters" is a Dreary Gothic Romance


After the disastrous trailer for Rob Zombie's version of The Munsters circulated online over the summer, was anyone anticipating it? Horror aficionados generally dislike Rob Zombie's movies, largely due to his wife, Sheri Moon, being cast in all of his films and his frequent usage of redneck characters with offensive dialogue. If you don't believe me, read the comments on any article about a Rob Zombie movie. Yes, there are a few trolls, but as I've already stated, most horror enthusiasts dislike his films. Maybe, with the exception of The Devil's Rejects, which has a modest fan base.

{The Midnight Horror}—"Margaux"—An Ineffective Smart House Slasher


Is it a plus or a minus that a horror film doesn't receive enough reviews to receive a TOMATOMETER rating? Margaux now has four reviews from critics on Rotten Tomatoes. Most likely, none of you are familiar with Margaux (rated R; 104 minutes). The movie premiered on Paramount+ on September 9th with almost no hype. Chris Beyroot and Nick Waters wrote the screenplay for the film, which Steven C. Miller directed. Madison Pettis, Vanessa Morgan, Lochlyn Munro, Richard Harmon, Jedidiah Goodacre, Phoebe Miu, Jordan Buhat, Brittany Mitchell, and Louis Lay are among the actors who appear in the movie.
