Tales From The Blake – Issue #2

Hello fellow Halloween Love readers and welcome to another edition of my guest column I like to call Tales From The Blake where I discuss happenings and such that are currently going on in the horror genre and possibly share a small story from childhood. In this issue, I’ll be talking about another popular theory

You Can’t Kill the Franchise Boogeyman

Though they might try. It’s become something of an inside joke for fans and industry professionals, that there would ever really be a “Final” nail in the coffin for any franchise boogeyman, though they seem to try and use that gimmick on us over and over again. Let’s take a quick look at the apparent

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

Mail Day : Freddy Krueger 3-D Poster Magazine 1989. IT’S ALIVE!!

“Opens into a giant interactive living poster!” “The nightmare comes alive!” “MULTI-VISION poster pack!” You’ve got to love the hyperbole that surrounded classic 3-D images back in the day. When I was a kid there was nothing more exciting than being presented with a product that featured this headache-inducing magic, and I still vividly remember

Layers of Fear: Like Going Inside a Nightmare on Elm Street Film

With the game Layers of Fear, I think outside of there being VR support for the game (Update!) or maybe a sequel some time in the future, this is perhaps the closest anyone will ever get to feeling the experience of living a Nightmare movie. This game is crammed full of amazing visuals, creative scares,

Black Sheep of the Franchise: 5 WTF Sequels

Let’s face it, our favorite horror franchises love to repeat themselves. Take a look at Friday the 13th for instance: Nubile teens in the woods? Check. Copious amounts of sex and drugs? Check. A vengeful paramedic killing them off one by….wait, what?! That’s right, every now and then the filmmakers behinds these series decide it’s

Simplicity: The Key to Reviving Slasher Franchises?

When it comes to the re-animation of the big slasher franchises, a pattern has recently begun to develop. New Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, and Halloween films have been on-again, off-again more times than I can count, and it seems that the studios who own those properties just can’t seem to figure out

My Favorite Alternative Horror Movie Art Posters From 2015

2015 was an INCREDIBLE year if you have a passion for alternative movie posters, with nearly all of the highly skilled artists we have come to know and love producing a staggering amount of new pieces that pay tribute to movies across every genre. Their ideas and creativity has reached an almost overwhelmingly high standard,

Stab Wars : What If … Horror Movies Had Lightsabers!

Like most kids born in the 1970s I spent a good portion of my childhood obsessing over Star Wars, and when I look back at those days I can see how it very clearly guided me toward an appreciation and love for ALL movie types and collectable merchandise. It was the beginning of a passion,
