Beyond Fright: THE HUNTINGTONS’ “Let’s Go To Haddonfield”!!

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 […]

top-10-jump-scares-in-horror-insidious-2010

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 […]

LAKE MUNGO: THE MOST UNSETTLING MOVIE WHERE NOTHING HAPPENS

lake-mungo2

I’ve successfully been harassing the Killer POV crew for a while now about watching the Australian ghost flick, LAKE MUNGO.  When I was a sophomore in college, I came across this film at a Family Video store and I knew absolutely nothing about it.  The cover art drew me in and I went through a […]

I rarely get alone time in my current living situation, which can sometimes make it difficult to get into the proper head space for writing.
