    Review: CAMP DREAD

    The reality TV obsessed addiction of today is such a great subject to dissect via a good horror film. Unfortunately, though, when most films attempt to do such dissecting, they end up falling as flat as the reality TV shows that they’re referencing. Harrison Smith’s CAMP DREAD is a film that even with having a handful […]

    Beyond Fright: GONE GIRL Trailer Looks Creepy, Eerily Familiar!

    The debut trailer for Fox’s upcoming David Fincher-helmed GONE GIRL has made its way online, and hot damn, does it look great.

    Wait, Huh? Jerry’s Most “WTF” Double Feature Experiences!

Whether in the local multiplex, or at the drive-in, there wasn’t a single thing that I enjoyed more than giving the box office my couple of bucks, and seeing whatever weird ass double features they programmed. I wasn’t around during […]

Beyond Fright: Influentrial Band The Faint Returns with DOOM ABUSE!

The Faint is not your typical band. Even whilst emerging from the popular “Saddle Creek” roster of artists and releasing the more indie rock debut, MEDIA, it was clear that these Nebraska natives had a distinctive sound. Next up, they shed their former sound and traded it in for neo-gothic electro with noise-rock sensibilities for […]

Let’s face it: being bad is always so much more interesting than being good. Much of my early years were spent in a small church, filled with many youth sleepovers in which a young Jerry would get scared shitless by people saying that Satanists were kidnapping and killing kids everywhere and that I would burn […]

NBC is continuing to adapt more beloved horror fare for primetime with a four horror, two-part mini-series of ROSEMARY’S BABY, that’ll air sometime this Summer. Normally we wouldn’t garner much anticipation for the genre to be given justice on basic cable, but a little show named HANNIBAL has changed that forever. Apart from currently being […]
