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 […]

Outlast II is Reverse Children of the Corn

I very much expected to enjoy Outlast II because I enjoyed the first one, but was truly blown away at just how rich of a setting the sequel is set in. Heavily influenced by: Children of the Corn (or reverse Children of the Corn as I said because here we have the adults killing off […]

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, […]

Thoughts on the Upcoming Album from The Dahmers: In the Dead of Night

Despite deeply loving a lot of music regardless of genre and having a collection of music that’s both more eclectic and eccentric than anyone I’ve ever met, I rarely write about it here on HL. However, I got the opportunity to preview an upcoming horror-themed album and after viewing the following promo, I had to […]

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.” […]
