Horror & Sci-Fi: Helping Us Cope with Reality

I don’t think any other genres can cover social commentary and widespread fears the way storytelling in horror and sci-fi are able to. There’s just something so rich about these genres that allows for the best palette. I think the heightened reality and poignant themes really illustrate complicated issues and ideas well. As pattern-seekers, we’ll […]

Xeno Pooch : Remembering The Time Alien 3 Tried To Use A REAL Dog In A Suit!

It’s well documented that David Fincher’s Alien 3 was a seriously troubled production from start to finish and beyond. The script was a constantly changing mash-up of ideas that had come from multiple writers. Fincher wearily fought with executives over the budget and filming schedule most days. And the effects team were challenged with producing […]

Prevenge, and Why You Should All Subscribe to Shudder

I’m sure most of you horror nerds out there are at least familiar with the streaming service Shudder. Basically the “Netflix” of the horror genre, for just $4.99 a month you can have access to countless genre classics both new and old. This isn’t some paid ad or anything like that, I’ve been using the […]

House Wants You!

House House is yet another cult horror movie from the vault that I’m delighted, but surprised to see get the royal Blu-ray treatment. It’s an absolute gem of a film and one of my favorites. I feel like Scream Factory really paved the way to show movie studios that it was worth the time and […]

Split… Holy Shit

When I review something, “Holy Shit” is the closest thing you’ll ever get out of me along the lines of a “Two thumbs up!” or 10/10 type declaration. But really, I loathe ratings, which are distinct from both rankings or reviews. Rankings, are a way of saying something like “Here are my favorite zombie movies, […]

Dialogue To Die For : The Exorcist 3 Carp Scene.

In these bite-sized posts I’m going to be sharing my favorite moments from horror movies that don’t involve killing and violence. These moments are all about character interaction, wonderful writing and magical performances that linger long in the memory. Today we start with that beautiful and highly amusing scene from the Exorcist 3, where Lt. […]

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 […]

(Film Review) We Go On – A Clever Look at the Afterlife

If someone offered to show you proof of an afterlife, would you want to see it? For Miles Grissom the answer is an astounding yes, in fact, he’s willing to pay for it. The new film from writer/director duo Jesse Holland & Andy Milton, We Go On, explores the age-old debate of whether or not […]
