    “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. Sitting down with my older brother,  we would watch every WWF pay-per-view event, and with  how much of my time […]

    Fantasia Film Fest review: THE DEMOLISHER

    There’s a level of accomplishment that very few films are able to pull  off: being able to be striking and effective without having to rely on continual dialogue. These days, the typical audience member tends to put their money and attention towards films that are fast-paced and have a lack of room to breathe, and […]

    Beyond Fright Review: OLIVER, STONED

    The man child is a concept that feels pretty heavy in male driven comedies, more in particular to those starring Seth Rogen and Adam Sandler. Adult men who refuse to grow up and partake in toilet humor rack up box office tickets and seemingly influence a generation of young adults surrounded by statistics provided by […]

    El Rey’s FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: The Series Returns This August; New Faces Along For the Ride

    The first season of FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: The Series was full of unexpected twists, making the show stand on its own, venturing far off from the Robert Rodriguez film it was based on. It’s was definitely an interesting debut season,which from we were recently sent via El Rey, will be taken into even crazier […]

Review: ROADSIDE

Thrillers are always interesting. Everything relies on suspense and the attempt to keep the audience engrossed and wanting to see the puzzle come together right in front of them. Some work and some don’t, that’s just a fact that comes with the territory. It’s all about WANTING to take a journey with the film’s characters, […]

Review: THE SHELLS

While the horror genre has definitely been putting out some impressive films lately (last year was INSANE), the fact is, that a lot of the genre’s entries just rehash the same formula and cliches. There are always gems hidden somewhere within those films, and when you find those gems, it’s enough to give any horror […]

Icons of Fright Interview with TEETH & BLOOD’s SEAN CHRISTOPHER

Out now, is the vampire entry TEETH & BLOOD. It’s a film that takes a mostly African-American cast and instead of doing what Hollywood has typically done (offer up Blaxploitation films), it gives horror fans a serious approach, something that is welcomed, with the film’s story being the most important aspect. Actor/rapper Sean Christopher (AKA […]

VOD & Theatrical Screenings: How Do You Watch Horror?

I watch a lot of horror films, and for a majority of these films, I’m watching them at home on a laptop or through a streaming service on my television.  When you live in a cultural wasteland in Middle America, it’s not very often that the hot, new horror film is going to play in […]
