Tales From The Blake – Inaugural Issue

Hello fellow Halloween Love readers and welcome to the first edition of my guest column that I like to call Tales From The Blake. In this inaugural issue I’ll be talking about what references could possibly be in the new Halloween film; I talk about the newly released independent film entitled Stillwater and give you […]

Black Mirror (the game) — Hey, I Recognize that Rune ᚦ

Admittedly, when I first started playing Black Mirror (unrelated to the TV show of the same name), I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it. The controls were a bit janky, the animations a bit rough, it froze a few times, and the loading… reminiscent of PlayStation 1, where every new room you […]

A Very British Halloween : Retailer Review 1 – TK Maxx

Reluctant participation… that’s how I would describe the attitude of most UK retailers towards the Halloween season. They participate, but you always get the feeling that many of them would rather not be devoting a section of their store to spooky novelties that will only be sold for a limited time. In America it’s a […]

Let’s Talk About IT 🎈

IT. Oh boy, is there so much I want to talk about. I’ve had so many excited thoughts about IT going on over the past month or so in bits and pieces: the book, the TV movie, and the theatrical movie. Pieces that I might not have enough to say about respectively in order to […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
