    “Another Hero Gone”: Jerry Remembers Roddy Piper

    I’m sitting here, still shocked by the news of Roddy Piper’s passing. It hit harder than I would expect, because it reminded me of childhood, and how so much of mine was filled with Piper.

Review: HEIR

Sexual abuse isn’t anything new to the horror genre as films like I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE and LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT revel on women being abused leading to an avenging conclusion. Accusations of misogyny are often brought up as the purpose of utilizing these sequences are questionable if they actually are a quality […]

Review: ALL AMERICAN BULLY

Bullying has always been around, but hit the spotlight in recent years with the ever growing popularity of social media and viral videos. While the constant need to share everything online has spread across all demographics, the concept of going viral is still a fascinating piece. A mere photo of an all American cashier at […]

Review: FIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD

There are filmmakers out there who themselves are die-hard horror fans that spend hours upon hours researching and brainstorming to try and come up with an idea of creating a film that will go against the norm and become something that will stand on its own and apart from the other films competing for that […]

EDITORIAL: MAGGIE, THE MIST and Why Children In Peril Are Important Elements In Horror

This is not a review. In fact, if you’re looking for a recap of the now on DVD/Bluray Schwarzenegger film MAGGIE, look elsewhere. What this is, for all intents and purposes, is something of an editorial, a reflection on why the presence of children in danger and what can sometimes come from that element is an […]
