Chris Roberts

I am in my 30s and married with two great kids. I currently live in Little River, SC. I love classic and unsung horror from the 80s & 90s. My passion for all things horror began in my early teens thanks to a taste for the weird and a membership to Blockbuster. I write fan fiction and original works, as well as volunteer as a state representative for Scares That Care. I collect VHS tapes and the souls of children.


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


Short Story: Come Alone

Jade called me from a phone number I didn’t recognize. “Come to Arcadia,” she said. “Come alone”. Arcadia is the side of town that burned out years ago. No one wants to go to Arcadia. Not even bums. “It’ll be worth it,” Jade insisted. I wasn’t sure what to expect, especially in Arcadia. But my


Review: Swamphead

This is a bad movie. Normally, I bury the lead on how I feel about something I review until at least the second or third paragraph. But I literally had no way of opening up this review. I tried everything in my bag of tricks (which is honestly more like a fanny pack) to get


Review: Play Hooky

First, before I get into the review, let me just say how great it feels to come back and write again. Long story short, some things in my private life have kept me so busy, I haven’t had time to do what I love. My comeback will be slow, but I have not yet begun


Top Ten Worst Parents in Horror!

“Pushy parents can drive you nuts.”  –Greta Gibson, A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child We’ve all seen them. That mom or dad on the baseball (or soccer or football or……) field who cheers their kid on from the stands believing that if they just scream loud enough and be the most obnoxious


Review: The Night Before Easter

I love spring. Not as much as fall, as that is the time most associated with horror, but spring is enjoyable. Flowers bloom, things start to warm up and, of course, Easter. Not too many horror films take place during the season, but a new one has been added into the fold. The Night Before

CONTEST: Don’t Go to the Reunion DVD & Poster!

A few weeks ago, I reviewed Don’t Go To the Reunion, an indie horror film from Slasher Studios. Shortly after, I was contacted by the film’s writer, co-producer & Slasher Studios co-founder Kevin Sommerfield. He appreciated the review and wanted to pass something along exclusively to our readers. I am giving away one DVD copy

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
