Anarchy Parlor (2014)…An Unfulfilling Tale of Skin & Suffering

Torture porn…don’t you just hate that term? It implies that someone, somewhere, gets off on watching people suffer excruciating torment, and although that may be true, I prefer to think that most horror fans are only trying to test our limits when watching flicks like Hostel (which I loved), Turistas (meh) and The Human Centipede (which I hated). Anarchy Parlor is … Keep Reading…

Pay the Ghost (2015)…Probably Not the Worst Film You’ll See This Year

Do you remember, way back in the 1990’s, when Nicolas Cage was hailed as one of the greatest living actors? Seems unlikely right now, I know, because if one were to measure his greatness by his last 30 or so films, I could only assume that his talents were grossly overestimated. Make no mistake, Cage’s performances in such classics as his … Keep Reading…

The Final Girls (2015)…A Fun & Fresh Twist on the Slasher Genre

I love a good 80’s slasher flick, don’t you? Friday the 13th, Sleepaway Camp, Cheerleader Camp, Slumber Party Massacre…the cheesier the better as far as I’m concerned, and let’s face it, the 80’s were THE definitive era of cheesy horror. The following decades had plenty of decent killer flicks of course, but the genre started taking itself way too seriously at … Keep Reading…

The Ghosts of the Past Come Knocking in Don’t Look in the Basement 2 (2015)

It has been 42 years since S.F. Brownrigg’s drive-in classic Don’t Look in the Basement was released, and in all that time, the gritty tale of a small, experimental asylum and the lost souls that reside within has yet to lose its edge. Rough and unmistakably indie, the original Don’t is a rare gem of 70’s low budget horror and, although often … Keep Reading…

Introducing a Wicked New Dolly in The Boy (2016) Trailer

Frikin killer dolls man…ever since Chucky messed with my fragile young psyche oh so long ago (well not that long ago), evil living dolls have consistently messed with me. Not that I’m afraid of all of them mind you, but I’m genuinely unnerved by the idea that a toy can come to life and chop my ass up (or any … Keep Reading…

Goodbye Leatherface: Horror Icon Gunnar Hansen Dead at 68

It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to the man behind “one of the most iconic evil figures in the history of cinema”, the original Leatherface, Gunnar Hansen. Born in Reykjavik, Iceland in 1947, Hansen moved to the U.S. with his family at age 5 and grew up in the capital city of Austin, Texas. He passed away at his home in Maine … Keep Reading…

Paul Kane’s Blood RED…A Satisfyingly Dark and Delicious Read

There is something to be said about an author that can effortlessly entice, disgust and mesmerize his readers, all in the same sentence. There is even more to be said about the sublime experience of discovering a new author’s work and falling deeply in adoration with their style and prose that you wonder what on earth took you so long to … Keep Reading…
