1:16 am - Cheery Thoughts
And Trisk is updated with the latest review in my summer of slashers, Cheerleader Camp.

It's a different kind of camp, but the deaths are just as deadly.

Or something.

9:37 am - Dead and Roasting
Got another quickie review up on Trisk, and it's still appropriate for the Summer of Slashers.  This one is a new tv series, from Freeform, set at a summer camp that is totally not Camp Crystal Lake, and they even decided to set it in the 80s, so it really captures that whole vibe from Friday the 13th and the like.

I like what I've seen so far, but it hasn't quite won me over.

Oh right, it's called Dead of Summer, and if you're a fan of the genre, it's worth checking out.

9:12 am - You're Feeling Sleepy...
Trisk is updated with the latest review for our Summer of Slashers, the horror classic, Sleepaway Camp!

This is a GREAT movie, if you can get past some elements that some people find problematic.

12:14 pm - Nothing is Final
I've been meaning to review this for Trisk for a few months, but since it's an homage to summer camp slashers, how could I not finally take a look at Final Girls this month?

11:34 am - Can Demon Sharks Swim in Holy Water?
Shark Exorcist.

That's the latest review posted to Trisk.

Shark.

Exorcist.

Whatever you think a mashup between The Exorcist and Jaws might look like, it's not even close to what this movie brings to the shoreline.

1:17 am - Don't Fear the Camper
Trisk survived the 200th review, and the return of Andre Toulon's puppets, but that just means it is time to head back into the woods for our Summer of Slashers reviews.

July kicks off with Camp Fear, a simple story of a group of students and their professor going off into the woods to dig for fossils...and finding a murderous druid and his lake monster.

And it all goes horribly wrong from there.

1:36 am - Foe's 200 Inch TV
...Or Trisk's 200th review.

What is it?  What could it be?

It is part a series that has Cursed my very existence since this website began.  It got so bad that it felt like it was personally seeking Revenge upon me.  I stepped away from the series for awhile, but now it is time to go Retro with Trisk #200.  This, this shall be my Legacy.

1:09 am - Up at the Crack of Dawn
Trisk's latest movie in the Summer of Slashers reviews has been posted, and this time it's JUST BEFORE DAWN!

Kinda when I post these things, eh?

Anyways, it's your typical story of people riding up into the woods, meeting a Leatherface wannabe, and most of them dying.

There are some standout bits though, that really set this movie apart, and I ended up enjoying it.

11:34 am - Abandon All Hope
I rarely post reviews on Trisk so close to each other, but sometimes a movie comes along that just makes me SO BLOODY ANGRY that the need to vent is immediate.

And so we have The Abandoned.

I was actually going to hold this back a day or three, but as I was setting up the post, I started writing, and the entire thing just fell out of my brain.

10:16 pm - Slash and Burn
I took some time and updated Trisk with an actual tv show review, the highly anticipated (By me...) Chiller TV series, Slasher!

It's not original, but it does what it does well and entertainingly enough, and is clearly made by fans of horror.

10:25 am - Oh Boy...
Trisk just posted a new quickie review, for the recentish movie, The Boy.

It's about Lauren Cohan being hired to take care of a doll while its parents go on vacation.  And then it gets weird.
