HORROR MOVIES CAN (AND SHOULD) BE ABOUT MORE THAN JUST WHITE PEOPLE PROBLEMS

horror-2015-13

(still from IT FOLLOWS) 2014 came and went and I’m now looking ahead towards the horror of 2015.  A quick google search popped up CRIMSON PEAK, POLTERGEIST, THE FINAL GIRLS, WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, IT FOLLOWS, AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING, PHANTASAM V, SCOUTS VS. ZOMBIES, KITCHEN SINK, and a slew of other titles.  With […]

THE BENEFITS OF TRANSITION HORROR

916

As did many of you this holiday season, I spent my evening watching the classic Christmas jam, GREMLINS.  I remember begging my parents to let me watch GREMLINS when I was about six years old, and considering some of the more extreme stuff I had watched as a child, Joe Dante’s masterpiece was a walk […]

Gareth Evans’ game-changing action epic THE RAID was a shotgun blast to the face when it exploded onto our shores, collectively showing us that we had a new classic on our hands.

I’ve finally gotten to an age where I feel worldly enough to share my knowledge of cinema with my younger family members, rather than be the one depending on other people to expose me to new films.  Of course I’ll always be looking for unseen flicks from other people, but there’s something magical about showing […]

LET’S TALK ABOUT AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAK SHOW

We’re over halfway through the fourth season of AMERICAN HORROR STORY and Ryan Murphy has once again served us a peculiar plate of camp, horror, and recycled storytelling.  Of all the horror television shows out there, the only one I follow religiously is AHS.  Perhaps it’s my small obsession with Frances Conroy or the show’s […]
