Natty’s Favorite Holiday-Themed Horror Films That AREN’T Named Halloween!

Untitled-1

Admit it, you love holidays. Sure, all of the ‘hip’ people may say that they only love Halloween, but chances are they may also be a sucker for Valentine’s Day, Easter, or maybe something completely random such as Arbor Day (is ANYONE an Arbor Day fanatic?). Celebrating holidays can be a hell of a lot […]

“Is It Time To Say Goodbye To The Horror Trinity?” Part Two: FRIDAY THE 13TH

horror2

*Author’s note: In this second of three articles asking readers (and myself) if the HALLOWEEN, FRIDAY THE 13TH, and A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET franchises really have anywhere else left to go, the subject under the microscope this time around is Jason Voorhees, his mother Pamela and everyone else involved in some unfortunate events that […]

horror

*Author’s note: Before jumping right into this, I must say: I am a horror fan through and through. There is nothing that I love more than to watch genre films (that’s not an exaggeration). My favorite film of all time is HALLOWEEN (’78), and as much as I have been made fun by my friends […]

One of the main things that sparked my interest in the Exploitation Alley film I chose this time was the fact that it was a Rolling Thunder Pictures re-release. Of course, the Q-man and I have a similar taste in films, so I had a great feeling about it. Upon viewing, the positive feelings I had […]

A Look Back At: John Carpenter’s VAMPIRES

jcv2

John Carpenter is one of the greatest directors of all time, but you already knew that. Is there a more influential director that has transcended genres with such ease, all the while creating massively iconic characters and becoming a “master of horror” in the process? A director who’s scores you can play on loop and […]
