First Time Watch of Suspiria (1977 & 2018)

I generally don’t subscribe to the idea of comparing two things in the context of, for example, who played The Joker better, Jack Nicholson or Heath Ledger? Because, I can enjoy them both greatly, but separately, as their own thing, their own interpretations. That’s how I feel about The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and its remake,

How It Ends — A Movie with No Ending

Netflix has come out with a lot of amazing original horror content, both in movies and series. But, Netflix creates so much original content now, that it’s actually very easy for releases to get lost in the mix. Obviously, the best content like Stranger Things and Bird Box are going to rise to the top

Netflix + Black Mirror + Video Games = Bandersnatch

Sooo, that’s what the creators of Black Mirror have been up to. Released just today on Netflix, is a new interactive Black Mirror film, called Bandersnatch. It’s a decision-based game, where you can go down different avenues, and ultimately get different endings, based on the choices you make. This of course is nothing new; this

Bill Rebane and His Shooting Ranch

Gleason, Wisconsin has a population of roughly 200 people and growing up, I was one of them. It’s a town where the family farm still struggles to survive and you have to make the 15-mile trip into the “city” for groceries and school. In short, it’s not an area people generally move to. But a

Cam Explained

Nothing supernatural is going on in Netflix’s new horror movie Cam. No ghosts in the machine or doppelgangers it turns out. However, it’s not science fiction either, a “what if” as our technology continues to evolve. No, what’s most terrifying about what happens in Cam is that technically, everything that we see happen is already

If you never saw the first WNUF Halloween Special, remedy that immediately (or we’ll revoke your Halloween fan card): Watch on Amazon (it was available on Netflix and Shudder previously, but Amazon is the easiest remaining option now) Then, after you finish watching it and inevitably love it, or if you were already a fan

Let’s Purge!

Wow, am I out of the loop. I had only seen the first one, The Purge (2013), and now I’ve just watched the prequel, The First Purge (2018), but I did not realize how much of a horror franchise it had become: The Purge (2013) The Purge: Anarchy (2014) The Purge: Election Year (2016) The

Pride 2018: Reflecting on Making 0 Feet Away

As much as I am a horror fan, I am just slightly a different person when it comes to my filmmaking. What I have to say may be different from the filmmakers I admire and the movies I love. I have my passions about the stories I want to tell and my anxieties that I

Make it to the Sequel: Horror and the Fight for Survival

I have a dark sense of humor. I once joked that if I woke up in a Saw trap, I wouldn’t play the game… I would just give up. I couldn’t see myself chopping off an arm or putting myself through some other bodily harm in hopes of making it out alive. Then again, I’ve

Horror and the Communal Experience

What is it about seeing something so scary we have to show it to our friends? Or maybe you’re too scared to see it alone and you have to drag someone along? This is not a new phenomenon, but it’s still a curious one. Depending who you see a horror movie with, it creates a
