My name is John H Maloney and I'm a writer, musician & podcaster based in New Jersey.

I decided to start the rec list as a way to extend the constant stream of recommendations that I've been posting on social media for years. I've recently realized that media curation is a passion of mine and now I want to try reach a larger audience. Every week I'll be posting recommendations for movies, music, anime, podcasts, Youtube channels, books, tv shows and any other media I find & feel compelled to share.

In addition to writing the rec list, I'm also the co-host and producer of a b-movie & cult movie review podcast called Zombie Take-Out.

Movie/Stitches

Movie/Stitches

Hey, I'm Jenny Dreadful. My good friend John asked if I had any recommendations for good movies to watch on Halloween, and the perfect one leaped to mind: Stitches. Especially with all the real/rumored clown scares going around the country, lately, what better movie to watch on Halloween than Stitches: The story of a birthday clown that returns from the dead to take revenge on the kids who caused (however accidentally) his untimely and gruesome death while performing for them.

The main events in the movie take place a few years after that fateful birthday party, when the young children have now reached their teens. Our hero, the birthday boy, hasn't had any more birthday parties (understandably) since the one that went so horribly wrong, but is finally talked into having another by his friends.

With plenty of hilariously gory clown-themed deaths, complete with a red nose that takes off on its own to sniff out the next victim, this movie is the perfect choice to exploit anyone's coulrophobia!

Available on Netflix, Amazon, iTunes, and Vudu, this movie is sure to answer the question Stitches himself likes to ask, "Everybody Happy?" Yes, yes I am. As you will be if you choose to watch Stitches this Halloween!

Jenny Dreadful is a perfectly ordinary housewife and mom. Her hobbies include baking, sewing & dancing naked in the moonlight before hunting the dark creatures of the night and you can find her at MsJennyDreadful.com.
