Where to Begin if You Have Questions About the Supernatural and Paranormal

In modern times, with the internet at many of our fingertips, our curiosity on everything from the trivial to the life-defining, is often quenched very quickly, with just a few clicks. Although there is a wealth of knowledge on all subjects, most reputable sources of information break up the world into two main categories: The […]

The Strain Has a Serious ‘Master’ Problem Right Now

One of the best television episodes this year was the Season 2 premiere of FX’s vampire series The Strain, which featured a pre-credits scene directed by Guillermo del Toro, co-writer of the novel trilogy the show is based on. The flashback sequence showed us the origin story of the so-called Master, who we learned was […]

Best. Dracula Movie. EVER.

Everybody has their favorite vampire movie. They’re great on Halloween. They’re great on Valentine’s Day. Since before the first “Talkies” hit the Hollywood screen, Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” novel has terrorized the minds of readers while defining the horror genre. It has inspired countless theater and film adaptations since its publication in 1897. In the past, […]

Top 5 Vampire Movies for Date Night

The connection between Vampire lore and romance dates all the way back to 18th century Gothic poetry (like Goethe’s The Bride of Corinth). Think about it: notions of everlasting love, on the fringes of society… midday strolls on the beach are kind off the table, but hey — no relationship is perfect. Anyway, it’s almost […]

The Strain Season 1 Finale: Recap and Thoughts

It feels like just yesterday that a plane full of undead passengers landed in New York, and long-tongued vampires began ravaging the city. And yet, it was nearly three months ago that The Strain premiered on FX, the show wrapping up its inaugural season with last night’s 13th episode. Throughout the course of the season, […]

The Strain Season 1, Episode 12: Recap and Thoughts

One of the strongest aspects of The Strain‘s inaugural season has been the decades-spanning story of good vs. evil, reflected in the relationship between Abraham Setrakian and The Master’s right hand man, Thomas Eichorst. If Eichorst is Dracula then Setrakian is Van Helsing, and it’s of course no coincidence that the latter shares a first […]

The Strain Season 1, Episode 11: Recap and Thoughts

If Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights has an attraction themed after The Strain next year, I’m willing to bet it’ll be largely based on this past Sunday night’s eleventh episode, which finally took the main characters down into the subway tunnels and put Eph face-to-face with The Master. Horror was primarily the name of the […]

The Strain Season 1, Episode 9: Recap and Thoughts

A great episode of a TV show is one that’s good not just as a standalone hour but one that also changes that show for the better, going forward. I can’t think of a more fitting way to describe The Strain’s eighth episode, which finally swapped out ‘shit is about to go down’ for ‘shit […]

The Strain Season 1, Episode 8: Recap and Thoughts

Prior to this past Sunday night’s episode of The Strain, show-runner Carlton Cuse took to Twitter to let his followers know that it’s his personal favorite hour of the show to date, in a follow-up tweet writing that “A lot of stuff we’ve set up starts to pay off.” As promised, ‘Creatures of the Night’ […]

The Strain Season 1, Episode 7: Recap & Thoughts

If there’s any take-away from last night’s episode of The Strain it’s that Thomas Eichorst is one of the best villains on television right now. More than anything, ‘For Services Rendered’ was a showcase of the character’s never-ending evil, and goddamn is German actor Richard Sammel frightening in the role. The latest episode of FX’s […]
