Halloween Hate

It is a movie title that inspires near instant anger when it is mentioned. Purists tear it down every chance they can get. Few will say it is actually a good movie. There are some out there, however, who understand that it is not only a good film, but actually a very creative and original

Layers of Fear 2 is a Haunted House Simulator

I love, love, LOVED the first Layers of Fear game. Like the first game, Layers of Fear 2 is essentially what people would refer to as a “walking simulator.” However, I feel like the developers have basically created their own sub-genre, a “haunted house simulator.” At least, that is the very best possible way to

Under Rotting Sky

On April 20th, a book was released that might have flown under your radar. It was from Matthew Brockmeyer, author of Kind Nepenthe, which you may have heard of through some roughly eight thousand glowing reviews. His latest, titled Under Rotting Sky, is an anthology that deserves your attention … now. And that’s a “now”

Retro SF Review: The Exile, by Alfred Coppel (1952)

Car crashes can happen easily. A simple matter of not following the lanes of the road will do it. But in a world where everyone is forced to stay in their lane, one man tries to veer off the path. “The Exile,” by Alfred Copper (published in Astounding Science Fiction, May 1952), is set eight

This is Us

After seeing Us I think I can safely say the scariest thing about it was the trailer. I did not hate it, though. In fact, I thought it was a well-done horror film, and I am glad it did well at the box office and resonated with people. I just came out of it feeling

The Crow

25 years ago, The Crow was released. I saw it then, a few more times over the years on VHS, DVD, and now, 25 years later, I’ve just seen it on Blu-ray, with better picture and sound than I’d ever seen it before. Still just as incredibly beautiful and tragic, and I’ve only noticed more

Eastrail 177 Trilogy

I loved every moment of every film (Unbreakable/Split/Glass) in the Eastrail 177 Trilogy. Now that this trilogy is complete, I’m going to have to think long and hard about where it fits into my “Best Movie Trilogies of All Time” list. I think it might actually make the top 10. Of the the 3 movies,

Did You Spot The Twilight Zone Easter Egg?

Tonight’s episode of The Twilight Zone, “Nightmare at 30,000 Feet,” which has been told a few times now, was unsurprisingly a great episode. Unlike previous tellings of this story (originally written by one of my favorites, Richard Matheson), it wasn’t a gremlin on the wing of the plane that took it down this time, but

It Takes a Nation of Zombies to Hold Us Back

Xavier Burgin’s documentary, Horror Noire, which is taken from the book of the same name, is required viewing for horror fans, film fans, and people interested in the Civil Rights movement. The last one is a particularly heady subject that usually only comes up in horror circles during discussions about George Romero and his hordes

“Fingers” Nails It

What would you do if living off-grid were nearly impossible? If infrastructure itself were like a city-sized amoeba, reaching out its pseudopods of wires, roads, and plumbing across the Earth? What if, even after running away to a remote spot deep in the woods, you still had to look over your shoulder for fear of
