A Question of Violence: Part One

As a writer who not only writes horror, but also writes about it, I get asked a lot of questions about the nuances of horror. I am often asked why characters in horror movies do stupid things such as going into the basement, why there has to be so many sequels, and the often polarizing

#NewTwitter Design: How to Make it Completely Halloween-themed!

The #NewTwitter redesign of 2019 is here, and of course, surprise surprise, everyone hates it! There are a few quirks to be worked out for sure, as is always the case, but it wouldn’t make any difference, because people hate change and will always complain when something does, as is always the case. One of

Horror, But Not Horror: More Red Dead Redemption II

Part I | Part II of spooky stuff found in Red Dead Redemption II Wow. I really had no idea. In part I of my exploration of all things creepy in the world of Red Dead Redemption II, I had already beaten the game and done a ton of exploring and mystery-solving, but I had

Let’s Grow Some Pumpkins for Halloween!

You talkin’ ’bout punkins in July? Yup, that’s right missy and mistas. Because it takes pumpkins around 100 frost-free days to fully grow, the last week of July is pretty much the most ideal time to plant pumpkin seeds so that they’re ready for harvesting in October.

Devil Makes Three

As a child, one of my favorite horror franchises was the three films that revolved around a young boy named Damien. From a toddler to a statesman, the Omen franchise captured my, and much of America’s, imagination. How could such a delightful child be such a monster? It’s a fear any parent experiences at least

The Best Filmmaker Interview and Roundtable Shows

I’m a fan first, and a creator second. And let’s be honest, anything that I actually create isn’t really all that original, it’s just a shrine, a tribute, a way to express my fandom and communicate the things that I love. My desire and curiosity for knowledge about the things I love, especially behind the

Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Franchises

When I mentioned to my girlfriend that I needed to think of something to write about for this week’s column, she immediately suggested Child’s Play because it was timely. My reaction to her suggestion was lukewarm. I had not seen the remake yet, so what could I say? I started to tell her my feelings

Banana Splat

As a kid I loved watching the reruns of The Banana Splits. It was a goofy show filled with nonsense and “hilarious” sound effects, but for some reason I was into it. I even collected (and still do) the comic books. When I heard a movie was coming out, I was baffled. It did not

Argento

If you want to throw someone into a nightmare, and they don’t love horror (or only like the Saw series), show them a film from Dario Argento. Anyone who is a fan has a favorite. Many like Suspiria (1977). Great film, but not my favorite. The one that I think works best is one a

@RareHorror Failed to Learn a Lesson, but so Did We

In case you’re late to the party concerning all the drama that’s gone down on #HorrorTwitter over the past few days, I’ll try and quickly recap, before digging in deeper. In a nutshell… @RareHorror got called out for sharing art, but not crediting the artists. They pushed back with their reasons why they didn’t want
