90’s Horror Kid TV Spotlight: ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK?

Over the years I’ve received a great deal of discrimination from the horror community based solely on my young age.  I was born in 1990 and luckily raised on a healthy diet of all things creepy and cooky (Thanks, Mom!).  While I may not have grown up during the age of rampant VHS horror distribution […]

HALLOWEEN 5 – The Most Misleading Teaser To The Most Disappointing Michael Myers Film

One of my fondest rites of passage into becoming a full fledged horror nut was when I got to see my first theatrical HALLOWEEN movie in theaters. I was 12 years old when I witnessed HALLOWEEN 4: THE RETURN OF MICHAEL MYERS on the big-screen and at that point I’d already read everything that Fangoria […]
