TV Reviews: OUTCAST, SSN01 -Episode 3: “ALL ALONE NOW” & Episode 4: “A WRATH UNSEEN”

OUTCAST

EPISODE 3: “ALL ALONE NOW” Episode 2 of OUTCAST was full of flashbacks that were difficult to differentiate from each other, causing it to be a bit repetitive. We get it already: Kyle’s mom beat the shit out of him as a kid and it was no surprise revelation that she was possessed. The surprise […]

The second chapter in James Wan’s continuing saga of Ed and Lorraine Warren, THE CONJURING 2, sees the couple in England in the 1970’s at the behest of a priest to rid a family of an unwanted house-guest, such as a ghost of an old man in a chair in the living room for starters. The […]

A

Join me in the confines of my house on the hill, where every week I’ll be sharing with you a seemingly random review of a movie that’s come across my horror-nerd radar in the middle of the night. So come join my on the couch. It may give you some insight into the way our […]

VIDEO GAME Review: RESIDENT EVIL 7 (Demo)

Resident Evil 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour_20160614040115

After playing the demo of RESIDENT EVIL 7, I had to ask myself, “Could this be the franchise true return to horror?” I was completely oblivious that a new RESIDENT EVIL game was even in the works until I caught word of E3’s announcement late last night that a playable demo would be available after […]

To say Nicolas Winding Refn’s latest tour de force, THE NEON DEMON, is a masterpiece would be an understatement.  In between the exquisite neon colors, the impressive cinematography, and a score one would die to have, this film is a raw look at how the LA lifestlye, zeroed in on the modeling industry, can erase […]

lo2

About a year ago, I received a Facebook message from a friend of mine telling me I needed to watch a short that was making its rounds on the internet.  She sent me the link and told me to watch it with the lights out.  I wasn’t sure what to expect but figured no harm […]

TV Review: OUTCAST, Episode 2: “(I Remember) When She Loved Me”

OUTCAST2

The follow-up episode to the outstanding pilot of OUTCAST takes a much more ambiguous approach to the subject matter in question. While it’s been set up that demonic possession is surrounding our characters, it’s questionable what’s actually been going on with Kyle’s mother. Through a series of flashbacks, we see a much happier childhood for Kyle, […]

Trends are cyclical, in horror and collecting. We see resurgence of things long thought dead. Vinyl has been selling strong, and within the collector community, VHS culture is humming along. One of those pieces of VHS that is due for a return is the VCR board game craze. Whether it be the NIGHTMARE series or others, […]
