It Follows (2014): A Subtle, Perfect Nightmare.

In my early teens, right around the time I started the 8th grade, I began having what was to become a (so far) lifelong re-occurring dream. In the dream I am terrified, running as fast as my legs will carry me because I am being pursued by a giant, faceless predator who, regardless of how fast I am moving, is always … Keep Reading…

Lord of Tears (2013)…Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Owlman? Ummm…I am!

Fuck YES! Now THIS is a fucking horror movie! Unexpectedly nerve-racking, strangely beautiful and chillingly atmospheric, The Lord of Tears is an utterly brilliant cinematic horror experience that may not be for every horror fan, but in my book should absolutely be required viewing. Okay, lemme admit that when I first saw the poster featuring the infamous “Owlman” my eyes rolled into … Keep Reading…

Horror Quickie: What We Do in the Shadows (2014)

Sometime during the first 20 minutes of the hilarious vampire mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows, I came to the realization that if I and my besties were ever to be transformed into the undead, we would probably be a lot like the characters in this flick. The vampires in question are just the most endearing bunch of lovable, … Keep Reading…

The Babadook (2014)…An Old School Horror Movie That Lives Up to the Hype

Six times… It’s been a week since I discovered The Babadook, and I have already seen it six times…and  I’ve pre-ordered the BluRay. Why? Simply put, because The Babadook is, inarguably, the absolute best horror movie of the year. If you haven’t seen it, you’ll want to do that as soon as possible, and then clear that schedule cause you’ll … Keep Reading…

Maniac (2012)…Reflections on a Remake

Hmmm Elijah Wood as a murdering, mommy obsessed, lady scalping maniac…I’ll admit it, I had my doubts (many, many doubts).With his delicate, almost elven features and his un-intimidating stature, he didn’t seem exactly an ideal choice to fill the original maniac’s (Joe Spinell) big clunky shoes…come on, you know what I mean. He’s, you know, short and adorable, like a … Keep Reading…

See No Evil 2…The Soskas and the Beauty of Horror

Fuck yes!!! Nah seriously, FUCK YES!!!! I just finished See No Evil 2, a movie that I watched only because of the Soska Sisters’ involvement, and I am now watching it again, because it kicked THAT much ass!!! I mean fuck, look at all the exclamations I’m using, I am one enthused bitch right now. Alright, first, I might as well … Keep Reading…

Fright Night (1985) and the Near Perfect Horror Film

Contrary to popular belief, Fright Night has never been, nor will it ever be, remade. Tragically there exists a tasteless rumor, believed by many to be fact, that some very misguided soul took it upon himself to remake this near flawless gem of a horror-comedy, and in his endless detachment from rational thought, cast Colin Farrell as the villain. Ludicrous really, … Keep Reading…

The Exorcist (1973) and why 11 year olds probably shouldn’t watch it.

Ah Linda Blair, you crucifix defiling little hussy…if only you knew the sleepless nights you were responsible for. Well, to be fair, I think my mother was more to blame for the fear induced insomnia that plagued me during the tail end of 1992. After all, Linda Blair had no say as to who watched her film, my mother on … Keep Reading…
