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 […]

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 […]
