Creator Corner: New Segment on HL for Creators

Requests We Dislike I get emails each and every single day with review, promotion, and advertising requests. With that in mind, you would think that HL might be making money. Unfortunately, because we have to turn down about 99% of those requests, it just doesn’t work that way. The biggest problem is that we get […]

My First Trip into Wolfenstein

If you could simplify my life into one simple idea, it would be very much like the character in the classic Twilight Zone episode “Time Enough at Last.” I’m not very fond of society in general and at least once a day, I find myself thinking “There simply isn’t enough time in the whole world.” […]

The Devil Made Me Do It — A Quick Look at The Devil’s Candy

I’ve liked Ethan Embry since I first saw him in Vegas Vacation. He has a sweetness and sincerity about him, a kindness and vulnerability, with a little goofiness. I suspect this is why he mixes well with horror. Characters (and ultimately the actors that are playing them) in horror movies, if we like them, only […]

Vestron Video Collector’s Series: Wishmaster

If ever there were a movie that you can call capital “H” Horror, it’s definitely when it’s directed by a special effects guy and hardcore horror fan. Robert Kurtzman (the “K” from KNB), directed Wishmaster with a lot of love back in ’97. Being a horror fan, I of course always loved the movie because […]

I’ve Been an HL Reader for Years and All I Got was this Lousy Shirt

I’ve been struggling to find a reasonable and affordable way to sell shirt designs. I’ve tried Zazzle, CafePress, Teespring, Spreadshirt, applying for Amazon Merch (no response yet), asking other sellers for advice, you name it, and nothing has been a good fit yet. The problem? Mainly, it comes down to price. These services all start […]

Vestron Video Collector’s Series: The Gate

The Gate is one of those special kinds of high concept movies that could have only come out of the ’80s. I first discovered it as a child and then tracked it down again years later from the deep recesses of my nostalgic psyche. While this movie is actually on my Scream Factory wishlist, I […]

Twin Peaks Homework Done — Ready for its Continuation Here in 2017

I don’t think there’s any body of work, in either film or television, that has quite the same cult following as Twin Peaks. Despite knowing this for many years, only now, 27 years after its release, have I finally made the journey. In just the past few days, I binged my way through the first […]

Help Kickstart a Live Tour for Shriekback

Shriekback is a band of nutters from the ’80s, who make music outside the bounds of any easily-defined genre. Like many fans, I first discovered their diverse, haunting, atmospheric, and ultimately, experimental music, through the soundtrack of my favorite film Manhunter, and by extension, becoming my favorite band. With that in mind and the fact […]

Let’s Play Killer: A Party Game for Adults

Make-believe has always been important to me. I loved dressing up as a kid, chasing my friends around, coming up with and playing games. So, let’s make it official and define some rules. The game, we’ll simply call it Killer. Intended for Ages: 18+ (if younger, please seek supervision from an adult) Recommended Players: 4+ […]
