Natty’s Top Five Mothers In Horror!

a6

We all love our mothers, and sometimes we make jokes about loving our friends’ mothers.  Especially able to be loved, are matriarchs in horror films. The bad ones make us appreciate the moms that we were given. Even if my mother didn’t understand my obsession with wanting to dress up like Kurt Cobain every day in Junior High, at […]

Classic Horror Trailers: PSYCHO II

Psycho-II-B

I have a massive amount of love and respect for PSYCHO II. To take what is considered by many to be not only one of the greatest horror films of all time, but one of the greatest films of all time PERIOD, and make a sequel to it…that takes some courage. Not only did writer […]

DOUBLE FEATURE ADVENTURES: BLUE RUIN/BLUE STEEL

Untitled-1

Last year, my good friend Natty and I started doing “Double Feature Adventures“, which basically translated into finding two completely different types of films, and finding the smallest thing in common between them (for example, HALLOWEEN 6 and MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE both had cults in them, but couldn’t be more different in tone and […]

Genre Gut-Punches: THE DEATH OF LAURIE STRODE!

ScreenHunter_23-Apr.-27-15.

Very few character deaths piss me off as much as that of Laurie Strode. HALLOWEEN‘s heroine was put through enough trauma to screw someone up for life, just within the first two films, before being killed off in off-screen events between HALLOWEEN 2 and 4, brought back with some serious retcon work inHALLOWEEN: H20, just to be killed again […]

“You Can’t Keep A Good Guy Down”: Natty’s TOP FIVE CHUCKY MOMENTS

Booze_Chucky1

At the wee age of four, my grandfather thought it would be a great idea to let me watch CHILD’S PLAY. I remember sitting down in a plastic lawn chair in the middle of the living room (I was a rebel), while I sipped on some apple juice. Not only did it blow my mind, […]

  I don’t know about you people, but I can’t enough of genuine, classic exploitation film that contain one or more of the following: gorgeous women who just so happen to be in a prison, a weird plot twist, a very sudden ending, some good ol’ fashioned revenge, and some Pam Grier. Lucky for us, this film […]
