Thanks for stopping by. I have no idea how you might have stumbled upon such an obscure little review site, but welcome. My name is Drew. I'm a geek of sorts who enjoys watching random, sometimes weird movies, reading an eclectic variety of books and listening to jazz, rock, metal, alternative and ambient style music. I also like writing and fiddling with website scripts so here we are. It's healthy to have hobbies.
Speaking of geek I'm also a horror movie fan raised on 70s and 80s horror movies, slasher flicks and creature features. Huge fan of filmmakers like John Carpenter, Tobe Hooper, John Landis, George Romero, and special makeup effects mastery of guys like Tom Savini and Rick Baker, Dick Smith, etc., so you'll see films of that era reviewed here too.
Now, contrary to what one might think—this being a review site and all—EclecticReviews.com is more of a public service than a critique site. In that sense I waste my time watching bad movies so you don't have to. But if you want to watch shitty movies go right ahead.
I don't always watch shitty movies though, sometimes I'm pleasantly surprised by a film that I initially thought would be shitty but turned out to be quite good in the end.
But EclecticReviews.com isn't all movies. Sometimes I read a good book or listen to some tasty music. So I'll share those with you as well, because as much as I love defending you from crap, it is also very rewarding to point out some good stuff you might like.
As the name of this site suggests my literary and cinematic interests, both shitty and good, run the gamut, and I tend to lean toward the strange and horrific side of things. Crappy music, however, is not on my playlist, though some might not agree. These things are subjective after all, so what we really end up with is merely personal opinion.
Paranormal topics cross over into the fictional side of my interest in sci-fi, spooky movies and TV. The X-Files, Kolchak: The Night Stalker and In Search Of... were favorites of mine, so you'll find a healthy dose of that bunk sprinkled through the site as well.
