There’s a level of youthful imagination that tends to fade away with time, especially in the sometimes jaded fields of writing, filmmaking or just following your dreams in general.

Review: TALES OF HALLOWEEN

TOH

The anthology genre is not a new concept in horror as many fans my age grew up on classics such as CREEPSHOW and TALES FROM THE CRYPT. As I got older, its popularity leveled down a bit until a mini resurgence in recent years. On television we have AMERICAN HORROR STORY where every year brings […]

GT

Filmmakers in the 80’s used any and every trick and gimmick conceivable during the decade’s slasher boom solely for the purpose of making as much money as possible. Audiences flocked to box offices in droves and though some of these films were successful, many weren’t and were immediately forgotten by moviegoers as soon as they […]

Metal as Fu#$ Gorefest DEATHGASM Hitting U.S. Theaters This October!

deathgasm

It’s no secret that Jason Lei Howden’s DEATHGASM knocked our asses out, when the film played earlier this year at SXSW (review).
