I Love Creepshow

The title really says it all, but I’ll elaborate. I must have been 11 or 12 when I first watched Creepshow. My grandmother had rented some scary movies for me in early October of that year and most of them were classics I’d seen before. One film in that stack though was new to me,


Beyond the Gates — The Horror Version of Jumanji

I can’t say that Beyond the Gates is a great movie, but for a low-budget indie, it’s quite enjoyable and the theme of the movie is fun. In fact, it feels more like an anthology segment than a proper movie really, which I actually mean as a compliment. Not sure how I missed it growing


VHS Visions: Treasure Hunting for Horror Promo Sleeves and Press Releases!

This past weekend saw my home town once again welcome the ONLY convention that reaches this corner of the UK – Dev-Con. It’s primarily a Sci-Fi and comic book gathering with plenty of dealers and the occasional guest who appeared in Star Wars for about ten seconds, but to a horror fan like myself there


Review: HI-8 (Horror Independent 8)

The shot on video (SOV) format has been a tried and true staple of the horror community ever since the days of “Boardinghouse“. From time to time, a movie comes around that claims to be a “throwback” or an “homage” to these days of horror old. None more so than HI-8. A concept where eight


HL Exclusive Interview: The Return of Gorgon Video!

Despite my love for anthology films, I put off on watching V/H/S/2 for an entire year, due to the fact that I was largely underwhelmed with 2012’s first installment. I found V/H/S to contain more misses than it did hits, and I was all around quite unimpressed with the short films that comprised it. Now

Why I Love VHSPS (And Why You Should Too)

At the beginning of my first post, I mentioned collecting VHS tapes. At last count, I have over 100 tapes, mostly horror. The best part of this hobby is “The Hunt”. Yard sales, thrift stores & flea markets have become my Mecca for the dead format. eBay is a treasure trove of lost tapes and


Bloody Birthday!!!

I collect VHS tapes. As long as it’s horror, or occasionally action. Or Sci-Fi. Or exploitation comedy. Ok, so I collect any VHS. If you ask my wife, she will tell you I have too many. But any horror fan will tell you that VHS is how we fell in love with the genre. It
