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 […]

MIXtapeJOSH

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.

Natty’s FIVE HORROR BADASSES

BADASSES

Nothing gets our attention in a horror film quite like a badass. Of course, we often find ourselves rooting for the bad guy (or girl), the random hordes of zombies, or weird objects. (Or is that just me when I watch the Evil Bong movies?) Either way, we can all agree that we love a good […]

Daryl-Dixon-Fanatics-690x315

Over the course of THE WALKING DEAD‘s wildly successful four seasons, no other character has earned as much adoration or fan praise than Daryl Dixon. (Unless of course you count the “Corl” meme.)  Whether it’s the popular “If Daryl Dies, We Riot” mentality or the sold out $325 tickets for the “Norman Reedus VIP Experience” […]
