H1

Who doesn’t love the Ramones? It’s almost blasphemy to not have some sort of admiration or at least respect for the punk rock pioneers, and like the saying goes, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. While I have been a fan of The Ramones for most of my life, there was a period in my […]

JUMP SCARES: OPTION OR OBSESSION?

I’ve been writing publicly about horror films for a little over five years, and I’ve been watching a healthy dose of horror films for over two decades.  One would think that after watching so many films, I’d be desensitized to all of the traditional tricks and tropes that trigger a response from the average audience […]
