With the return of our FICTIONAL FRIGHTS short story series, we thought we’d give you fright fanatics one hell of a story.

FAH1-450x400

This week’s Fright At Home is going to be a jam packed one. Quite a few releases hit shelves and online stores today, so it’ll be a bit lengthy.

It’s almost bizarre to think of the well-known Wesley Snipes BLADE trilogy as part of the Marvel cinematic canon. Dark, action-packed, and filled alternately with martial arts and supernatural abilities, the franchise has always felt more in line with the likes of THE MATRIX trilogy or the UNDERWORLD movies than, say, Tobey Maguire’s SPIDER-MAN saga […]

We all have heroes, and this week, one of the true horror heroes and legends, Wes Craven, passed away after fighting brain cancer. To say that Craven’s passing has affected the horror community would be an understatement, a statement that just doesn’t articulate how much of an absent we’ll have from here on out. The […]
