    Alfred Hitchcock shocked audiences in 1960 with his black and white classic PSYCHO when he decided to kill of leading lady Janet Leigh in the first 45 minutes.

FICTIONAL FRIGHTS: Jerry Smith’s “I’M TIRED OF DYING (Who killed me?!)”

Well, I figure since we’ve been able to kick off our FICTIONAL FRIGHTS series with two very entertaining short stories, courtesy of Sean Keller and David Martin, that it was time for me to throw my hat into the ring, so to speak.

Review: BURYING THE EX

There’s a regular opinion of popular filmmakers hitting their peak and not being able to make good films after said peak. Masters of horror such as Carpenter, Argento and Hooper are quite often thrown into those false statements because of a film here or there (sometimes more than one), and as fan of those filmmakers, […]

Bluray/DVD Review: SLEEPAWAY CAMP III

One of the things that I love most about being a horror writer and a longtime rabid 80s horror nut is getting the opportunity to meet other fans like myself and talk about the films that we sat through as kids for the first time and how we have grown to become so attached to […]

Review: Dude Bro Party Massacre III

Horror has never been shy with their obsession of slaughtering young girls (usually of the sorority or cheerleader variety), and there are very few instances where a horror villain targets their more masculine counterparts. Thankfully, the directing team of Michael Rousselet, Tomm Jacobsen, and Jon Salmon have delivered us the 80s slasher film we’ve been waiting for […]
