    Review: ALONE IN THE GHOST HOUSE

    As a skeptic, I find it difficult to watch ghost hunting shows without just yelling “BULLSHIT!” at the screen the whole time. And it makes me laugh when people on the shows play up the most minor thing as indelible proof of the afterlife. But when I heard that Henrique Couto, the independent filmmaker/ukulele maestro was crafting a found footage […]

    When the announcement of a POLTERGEIST remake hit the internet, it was next to impossible to ignore the cries and groans from friends/acquaintances who were absolutely livid at the thought of one of horror’s classics being given the dreaded redux.

    Review: REALITY

    When Quentin Dupieux arrived on the scene with his surreal (and VERY weird)”slasher tire” film, RUBBER, it was instantly apparent that this was a filmmaker who had absolutely no intention in making a point A to point B kind of film.

“I Like My Horror To Hurt”-Why We Need Downer Endings In Horror

I don’t want my horror films to be wrapped up in a neat little bow, with the final girl/guy walking into the sunset. The survivor who went through hell and walks away is always nice to watch, but more times than not, I want reality, I want to feel the pain of the evil and […]

We’re without a figure to lead the way. Every generation has one of them, and these days, there really isn’t anyone out there challenging the ideals of the Christian right, the masses putting the blame on everybody from musicians to filmmakers for the tragedies that could have been avoided with proper treatment of the individuals […]
