Resident Evil 2 Remake Review

Over 20 years ago, I played my first Resident Evil game, and my first major 3D console horror game, (of course I had played some spooky NES and computer titles much earlier), and that was Resident Evil 2. This game was definitely a game changer for me, and one of the first times I remember

The New Munsters on Mockingbird Lane

A few weeks ago I wrote about one of the children’s shows from my childhood that I loved, Eerie, Indiana, and briefly touched on how startled I was every time the main character’s mother’s name Marilyn was said out loud, as it’s not a name I hear every day, but it is my name. Another

I Learn More About the Voorhees Boy

I Have Seen Several of the Friday the 13th Movies Throughout My Life Some fully, but most in bits and pieces. The first movie of the franchise I remember seeing all the way through is Jason Takes Manhattan. My step-dad set up a double-feature for me one rainy summer break day, with Predator 2. I

Resident Evil 3 Remake

Mark your calendars for April 3rd, 2020! Of all the Resident Evil remakes that have been coming out, it was always RE3 that I wanted the most. One word: Nemesis Among all the most terrifying monsters throughout the Resident Evil franchise, to me, Nemesis is hands-down, the scariest. 20 years ago, when I played the

Female Ghostbusters Won’t Ruin Your Childhood. I Promise.

You’ve surely heard by now that Bridesmaids/Spy director Paul Feig is working on a big screen reboot of Ghostbusters, which in fact just began filming today. True to Feig’s style, the quartet of NYC ghost hunters will be played by female actors this time around, with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones

Insidious: The Poltergeist Remake We Deserved

The inevitable remake of 1982’s Poltergeist made its debut in theaters a couple weeks back, and both fans and critics alike were mostly underwhelmed by the modern day upgrade. It certainly wasn’t one of the worst remakes we’ve gotten, as it was overall a competently-made film, but it was ultimately rendered pointless by its insistence

Rolling Stone Ranks the Best & Worst Horror Remakes. My Thoughts.

Few things inspire more heated discussion than the topic of horror movie remakes, with the mere mention of that dreaded word striking fear into the hearts of so many fans. Though remakes are of course nothing new, they’ve gotten pretty out of hand in recent years, and it seems that no fan-favorite classic is safe

Poltergeist (1982): The Ultimate Family-Friendly Horror Film

We’re just a few days away from the theatrical release of Poltergeist, a big screen remake that we somehow managed to avoid for a whole lot longer than most. Whereas Tobe Hooper directed and Steven Spielberg produced the original, this time around Gil Kenan (Monster House) directed while Sam Raimi produced, lending the film a
