Home for the Holidays: The Proto-Slasher that Came Before Black Christmas

Here’s the deal, there aren’t a lot of great holiday horror films. One of the hands down best, a genuine classic, is Bob Clark’s seminal proto-slasher, Black Christmas. Released in 1974, Black Christmas set the stage for slashers years to come, including little Mikey Myers and his numerous rampages on Halloween night. Yes, Black Christmas […]

Interview with All Through the House Director, Todd Nunes!

A few weeks ago, I got to check the awesome Christmas slasher flick All Through the House (read my review here).

My Bloody Valentine: The Sequel That Never Was

There were very few fan-favorite slasher films that came out in the 1980s that weren’t honored with at least one sequel, which is why it’s pretty surprising that one of the best slasher exports of the era was never followed up with one.
