    TV Reviews: OUTCAST, SSN01 -Episode 3: “ALL ALONE NOW” & Episode 4: “A WRATH UNSEEN”

    EPISODE 3: “ALL ALONE NOW” Episode 2 of OUTCAST was full of flashbacks that were difficult to differentiate from each other, causing it to be a bit repetitive.

Why You Should Be Paying Attention To BATES MOTEL!!

When A&E first announced that they had greenlit a straight to series order on a show based on Norman Bates, I was very skeptical. This was in light of the rise of popularity in genre programming on television in which I welcome, but properties that I hold close to my heart make me anxious to […]

Icons of Fright Talks 13 CAMERAS With Neville Archambault

At last year’s Fantasia Film Festival, one film that really left me with quite the gut punch reaction, was Victor Zarcoff’s SLUMLORD (review). It told a story of a young couple being stalked and watched (via cameras) by their creepy and almost silent landlord. While the concept might seem a bit “been there, done that”, SLUMLORD […]
