    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, […]

Heather's Freddy Cut Montage (1)

A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET’s Heather Langenkamp gets herself a ‘Freddy Cut’ For Scares That Care!

I’ve always loved seeing Heather Langenkamp in things, as the Elm Street spotlight typically goes to Freddy himself, bypassing how integral the character of Nancy was in the original film. While Freddy is the star of the series in most fans’ eyes, my preferences tend to fall more with the protagonists of horror, and when […]

Beyond Fright Review: WHITEY: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA VS. JAMES J. BULGER

  True crime stories have always held my attention, as they are examples of not only how evil human beings can be, but how said men are capable of such awful acts of violence. The true crime approach to storytelling, whether it be in books, biopics, or in the case of WHITEY: UNITED STATES OF […]

House of Mouse Horror: A Defense for Disney Channel Original Movies

Before The Disney Channel became the network responsible for unleashing Miley Cyrus to the world and driving Shia LaBeouf to lose his damn mind, they were the pinnacle of children’s entertainment.  Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon were great, sure, but were they great enough to run a channel that only showed commercials…for its own channel?  The […]
