    INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER III Teaser Trailer Shows New Family; Back To The Beginning Approach

    James Wan’s INSIDIOUS scared the hell out of audiences and helped make Blumhouse a name brand, with a buildup of scares that led to one creepy villain. INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER II took somewhat of a different approach, providing a lot of explanations and pushed the budding series into a different direction. With Leigh Whannell (Writer of […]

    Bluray Review: THE SQUAD

    Scream Factory’s lineup of original releases have been somewhat of a hit or miss thing for viewers. Some, like the French Lovecraft-ian DEAD SHADOWS were met with moderately positive praise and some of the them, such as THE MONKEY’S PAW was not. Personally, I’m a big supporter of the gang at Scream Factory releasing these […]

Review: SX_TAPE

Most gripes falling within the found footage sub-genre of horror tend to be focusing on unlikable characters, the insisting of filming EVERYTHING at all times, and the slow burn of waiting for something to happen. While films like CLOVERFIELD, V/H/S/2 and THE DEN did a great job of breaking those trends, most found footage films, […]

Review: OPEN GRAVE

While the lack of originality causes films to suffer more times than it doesn’t, every once in a while, a film can put a somewhat familiar plot in front of viewers, and instead of following the beats and plot points of other films like it, it decides to offer up new angles and ideas that […]

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 […]
