    Review: AFTERMATH

    There is something fascinating about the end of the world. Obviously, not in a positive way. The reason we don’t see too many people welcoming the thought of the apocalypse with open arms, is because…well, the idea is downright terrifying. However, a film channeling humanity’s biggest fear is the next best thing, and well fright fanatics, AFTERMATH is […]

    Fantasia Review: LIFE AFTER BETH

    There’s something about the whole idea of zombies and people returning from the dead that used to strike fear into horror fans. Films like NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, ZOMBI, and various others were able to make their viewers genuinely affected and frightened. Somewhere in the last half decade or so, there was a shift, […]

    Beyond Fright Review: SABOTAGE

    A film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger comes with a decently hefty amount of expectations, due to his filmography being completely full of films that helped establish his role as the guy who has blown more buildings up, delivered more one liners, and muscled his way through more bad guys than any other badass working today. When an actor […]

Classic Horror Trailers: PSYCHO II

I have a massive amount of love and respect for PSYCHO II. To take what is considered by many to be not only one of the greatest horror films of all time, but one of the greatest films of all time PERIOD, and make a sequel to it…that takes some courage. Not only did writer […]

DOUBLE FEATURE ADVENTURES: BLUE RUIN/BLUE STEEL

Last year, my good friend Natty and I started doing “Double Feature Adventures“, which basically translated into finding two completely different types of films, and finding the smallest thing in common between them (for example, HALLOWEEN 6 and MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE both had cults in them, but couldn’t be more different in tone and […]

Natty’s Five Horror Families From Hell!

We can choose who we become friends with, who we spend our lives with, and depending on how much money we spend, who will give us a lap dance at our local strip club. The only people in our lives who we don’t get to choose, of course, are bound to us by flesh and blood. […]

Golden Age Slasher CURTAINS Opens On Blu-ray & DVD From Synapse Films!

When you think of classics of the slasher subgenre, you’re guaranteed to think of the golden age era in which they thrived: HALLOWEEN, BLACK CHRISTMAS, MANIAC, THE BURNING, etc. But what about the more obscure titles that maybe aren’t as great, but should rank right amongst the aforementioned? Films like INTRUDER, SLAUGHTER HIGH, and maybe […]

Beyond Fright Review: ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW

While the massive amounts of hype surrounding Randy Moore’s ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW might have hit some pretty large proportions, the question from the beginning has always been: is it the film just that hype, or does it surpass the “WOW, THEY SHOT THIS IN DISNEY WITHOUT ANYBODY KNOWING?!”. While the actual filming of the movie […]
