    Exploitation Alley: THE HOUSE OF EXORCISM (1974)!!!

    If 1970′s possession films aren’t your thing, they probably should be. Most of the time they can be downright creepy, often the right amount of cheese, and there’s always a chance that you might get surprised with random boobs for no reason at all. Actually, I’m pretty sure that I just explained the film I […]

    Belgian Boyscout Slasher CUB Hitting TIFF’s Midnight Madness Lineup; Trailer Looks Like Bloody Fun

    I love hearing about up and coming projects that give off a fresh take on the horror genre. Back in May of last year, the folks at Twitch reported on a crowd funding project to help finish a Belgian slasher film called CUB. The synopsis sounded like a lot of fun, and something that horror fans […]

    Beyond Fright: THE HUNTINGTONS’ “Let’s Go To Haddonfield”!!

    Who doesn’t love the Ramones? It’s almost blasphemy to not have some sort of admiration or at least respect for the punk rock pioneers, and like the saying goes, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. While I have been a fan of The Ramones for most of my life, there was a period in my […]

    JUMP SCARES: OPTION OR OBSESSION?

    I’ve been writing publicly about horror films for a little over five years, and I’ve been watching a healthy dose of horror films for over two decades.  One would think that after watching so many films, I’d be desensitized to all of the traditional tricks and tropes that trigger a response from the average audience […]

1990 Satanic Possession Film THE FIRST POWER Heading to Bluray This October!!

The Satanic sub-genre is by far one of my favorites, and the 1990 possession film, THE FIRST POWER has been a fave of mine since it was first released in theaters when I was 10 or so. During that time, Lou Diamond Phillips was absolute gold in my opinion, and THE FIRST POWER was just […]

Review: VARSITY BLOOD

Oh, high school horror, how I love thee. Not really, but hey, I’m open to anything in front of me at least once. Earlier in the year, Lucky McKee & Chris Silvertson gave horror fans an interesting entry with ALL CHEERLEADERS DIE, a movie that while not perfect, was a lot of fun and very […]

Brand New Trailer For L.A. SLASHER Promises Death To Reality TV!!

Martin Owen’s L.A. SLASHER has done an excellent job establishing a good sized buzz for itself, with convention appearances, viral marketing and the promise of bringing the “death to reality TV”, which sounds like one excellent plan to me. While just the synopsis alone is enough to turn most horror fans on, today the debut […]
