The Tragedy of Westworld

I was a fan of Westworld years before it was ever even conceived as a TV show, that’s because, and some of you may not know this, it was first a movie (released in 1973). The movie itself was well-made, but the concept was what made it special. It’s such a fun concept, the kind

X

Growing up, I loved movies so much, I wanted to make them. I was indeed that one kid in the group who carried a video camera around with them wherever our circle of friends went.

I say all this to preface the fact that, without a doubt, 1964’s Face of the Screaming Werewolf is the strangest, most

5 Horror Anthologies Worth Watching this Halloween

Let’s be honest, Halloween is the best time of year to consume scary things, sometimes of dubious quality, the famous guilty pleasures we all love and know, and sometimes in-a-row marathon, them being highly produced and famous big studio pieces or just some generic horror movies starring groups of not-very-intelligent teenagers hunted down and killed.

Mainstream vs Underground Horror

When people think of horror movies, they think of theatrical releases. You know… long lines, popcorn, the rustling of candy bags, and slight mumbling before the movie begins. Going to the movies used to be an experience. Almost as if time stopped and you ventured into another dimension. Of course, because of covid, that experience
