    Jerry Smith’s 20 Essential SCREAM FACTORY Releases

    I’m biased, so let’s just get that out of the way. I kneel at the altar of Carpenter, Craven and Hooper, so if you see repeats of said filmmakers on this list, that’s why: They’re some of my favorite films of all time. With that said, I thought it would be fun to go through […]

    TV Review: DEAD OF SUMMER – Episode 5: “How to Stay Alive In The Woods”

    It’s 2016, over 20 years since we were first introduced to the Candyman and Tony Todd is still scary as shit. With a voice that demands a 5.1 set up, he still has a screen presence that few come close to and makes me hold my breath every time his arms are out stretched towards […]
