Review: POLTERGEIST (2015)


When the announcement of a POLTERGEIST remake hit the internet, it was next to impossible to ignore the cries and groans from friends/acquaintances who were absolutely livid at the thought of one of horror’s classics being given the dreaded redux. Never letting that sway my interest in giving everything a fair shake, I decided to […]

5 Things I Learned From Gunnar Hansen’s ‘Chain Saw Confidential’


Tobe Hooper’s original 1974 classic ‘The Texas Chain Saw Massacre‘ is not only one of the greatest horror movies ever made, but it also happens to be one of my all time favorite films of any genre. And even now, 40 years later, I still revisit it often, read articles and books, watch any & […]
