Editorial: An In Depth Look At Why TV’s SCREAM QUEENS Matters by Leonel VHS

Lately I’ve been reveling in the fact that horror has made a huge resurgence on the small screen within the last few years. Back when I was a youngster in the late eighties, horror had a small presence on television, but albeit in a different form. Most of what was on the air then were […]

Beyond Fest 2014 Bringing Out The Big Guns With Appearances By Carpenter, Refn, Palahniuk; INSANE Roster of Films!!

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 […]

Genre Gut-Punches: THE DEATH OF LAURIE STRODE!

Very few character deaths piss me off as much as that of Laurie Strode. HALLOWEEN‘s heroine was put through enough trauma to screw someone up for life, just within the first two films, before being killed off in off-screen events between HALLOWEEN 2 and 4, brought back with some serious retcon work inHALLOWEEN: H20, just to be killed again […]

Michael Myers’ 10 Most Memorable ‘Halloween’ Kills

Ah, Michael Myers. One of cinema’s most notorious serial killers; pure evil on two legs. And whereas ‘Psycho‘ is often considered the granddaddy of the “slasher” film, that’d make John Carpenter’s original 1978 classic the “daddy” of this particular horror sub-genre. As is often noted, the original ‘Halloween‘ has very little in terms of on […]
