    “Another Hero Gone”: Jerry Remembers Roddy Piper

    I’m sitting here, still shocked by the news of Roddy Piper’s passing. It hit harder than I would expect, because it reminded me of childhood, and how so much of mine was filled with Piper. Sitting down with my older brother,  we would watch every WWF pay-per-view event, and with  how much of my time […]

    Fantasia Film Fest review: THE DEMOLISHER

    There’s a level of accomplishment that very few films are able to pull  off: being able to be striking and effective without having to rely on continual dialogue. These days, the typical audience member tends to put their money and attention towards films that are fast-paced and have a lack of room to breathe, and […]

    Beyond Fright Review: OLIVER, STONED

    The man child is a concept that feels pretty heavy in male driven comedies, more in particular to those starring Seth Rogen and Adam Sandler. Adult men who refuse to grow up and partake in toilet humor rack up box office tickets and seemingly influence a generation of young adults surrounded by statistics provided by […]

    El Rey’s FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: The Series Returns This August; New Faces Along For the Ride

    The first season of FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: The Series was full of unexpected twists, making the show stand on its own, venturing far off from the Robert Rodriguez film it was based on. It’s was definitely an interesting debut season,which from we were recently sent via El Rey, will be taken into even crazier […]

Fantasia Film Festival Review: POSSESSED

One of the many lovable elements of 2012’s PARANORMAN was how easy it was for genre fans to latch onto. It dipped its toes into the horror genre, giving small homage-filled shout outs to films that horror lovers adore. While that film and those nods were fun, it left me wondering if we’d ever receive […]

Fantasia Film Festival Review: SLUMLORD

At one point or another, we’ve all felt like someone was watching us. For the most part, it’s all in our imagination-filled heads, but what about the times and instances in which someone WAS being watched? What if we were not only being watched, but were also being violated in every room or crevice of […]

CREEP and the Big Bad “C-Word”

A lot of things change when you find out you’re dying. People who were mean to you decades ago will come out of the woodwork and try to make amends, everyone around you starts to handle you with kid-gloves, and perfect strangers will let you do whatever the hell you want. My family likes to […]

Seven Questions with the creator of Lore Podcast, Aaron Mahnke!

At the heart of every horror story is a little sliver of truth. No matter how small, the effectiveness of successful horror is almost always directly correlated to our ability to accept what we’re seeing or hearing as identifiable. Folklore has a timeless and powerful influence in the things that we fear, and the beliefs […]

TERROR-STILL

Fantasia Film Festival Review: (T)ERROR

The power that documentaries hold is such a strong one, that when done right, they can be very effective in a eye-opening kind of way. There is such a level of storytelling that cannot be compared to watching real life unfold in front of your eyes, it’s mind-blowing at times. Lyric R. Cabral and David Felix Sutcliffe’s completely […]
