ScreenHunter_262 May. 30 13.40

It’s a royal pain in the ass to get a good retro horror film to genre fans these days. Every film and their mother’s are trying to stamp a “Throwback to..” onto their poster, hoping to bring some sense of nostalgia to the table, and more times than not, they fail at doing so. Enter […]
