It’s Finally Time to Talk About Friday the 13th: The Game!

Since I first posted an update with the amazing news that the game had been funded nearly 2 years ago, I’ve been completely radio silent on the subject, including the 3 months now that the game has actually been released! This is particularly strange considering the following: Horror is my favorite movie and game genre […]

From the Creators of Layers of Fear: >observer_

I previously wrote about how blown away by Layers of Fear I was, so I was definitely on board with whatever Bloober Team developed next. And that next project came in the form of >observer_, a cyberpunk horror mystery, which I enjoyed thoroughly. >observer_ is drenched in atmosphere. Specifically, the game is most heavily influenced […]

How to Make Your Own Short Horror Film for Halloween

Halloween is coming up in a few months (yes, I know everyday is Halloween around these parts), so it’s time to start preparing. I’m sure you’ve got your costumes ready, but why not put them to good use – not just for the party you’re planning to attend with that special person you’ve got your […]

Good Grief: I’m Finally Ready to Try Making Spooky Shirts the Right Way!

I’ve tried every way to make shirts, except for, well, the right way! I’ve messed around with Zazzle and experimental concepts like Bonfire, all to no avail. The problem with using third-party sites like Zazzle is that shirts are way too expensive for buyers and still, the designer only gets maybe a $5 cut if […]

Real Nightmares: Behind the Scenes Photos

A Nightmare on Elm Street: Real Nightmares was canned well over a decade ago now, but the internet never forgets. A few years back, previous HL writer John asked for contestants to come forward if they had any information. A year ago, one contestant came forward and offered up some information, but unfortunately they went […]

I Like Me Some Walking Simulators: Perception

“Walking Simulator” is not a term that I consider to be derogatory. In fact, it’s one of my favorite styles of gameplay in video games. A walking simulator game is generally a game that doesn’t have a lot of interactivity like: driving, combat, or anything else that involves button-mashing. It’s a game where, for the […]

Vestron Video Collector’s Series: The Unholy

It’s rare that I’ll write about an old cult movie newly released on Blu-ray that I hadn’t originally seen in the past. However, the new release of The Unholy in the Vestron Video Collector’s Series is the first time I recall ever seeing the movie. I liked it, but wanted to love it. It came […]

Falling Through the Cracks: Zombies Chronicles

When I was a much younger horror fan, I obsessively scoured the internet for hours, every day, for any picture, snippet, interview, preview, or rumor I could get my hands on for upcoming horror releases. When I was in school and in study hall, I’d always pretend to need to go to the library to […]

A Cure for Wellness

A Cure for Wellness is yet another movie I love that appears to be poorly received almost universally, if reviews and ratings are to be believed. A lot of the movies I love are unloved by the masses. Of course, while what’s “good” or “bad” can never be an objective absolute, I do constantly struggle […]

Twin Peaks (2017) — First Impressions and Advice for New Fans

Oh my, I’m loving, absolutely loving the new Twin Peaks. It makes me happy in my tummy-tum-tum. It’s so hilarious, wonderfully bizarre, and has an insane amount of cameos. I’m not talking about returning actors and favorite characters, but famous actors in general who clearly just wanted to be in a Twin Peaks episode, popping […]
