It’s the second night of the NYC Horror Film Festival & Your favorite deity is a bit bloody but unbowed from last night. The Black Saint has strapped on his gloves again & is ready for another round in the ring with some more Horror films to tell you about. I’m doing all of the dirty work so you won’t have to unless you want to. But I have to say that Festival Director Michael … Continue reading
WARNING: THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS NUMEROUS DESCRIPTIONS OF THE PLOT
Peripherally based on the real life character of Ed Gein, who killed two people in the 1950s and kept their body parts, the Alfred Hitchcock film Psycho still resonates as one of the greatest horror films of all time, even 50 years after its 1960 release.
Published shortly after the discovery of Geinâs misdeeds, Robert Blochâs novel partly inspired Joseph Stefanoâs … Continue reading
You’re at a party, everyone’s having a great time. You and your friends are having way too much to drink, and that’s a good thing. You guys are young, you’re just at the right age to let loose and not care.
There’s this foxy lady that you’re trying to hit on over by the would-be punch bowl when your buddy taps you on the shoulder.
“Dude, this guy’s at your door … Continue reading
It’s that time of the year folks. Halloween is only a formality to behind what really lurks downtown Manitou Springs, CO this time of year. This year is especially active as over 12,000 bodies have left the comforts of their homes to witness a traditional annual event that can only be called the annual “Emma Crawford Coffin Races”.
By the looks of things, you would think they were giving away free money the way the … Continue reading
This just in: America cannot and will not read subtitles. Ignorance is spreading from coast to coast, is there anything that can stop this epidemic?
Have you ever heard of a remake of a film that was a made just a year after the original was released? Sounds pretty farfetched, but when it comes to Americans and their unwillingness to read, we get light-speed drive-thru service. Quick and speedy films completely re-done just to add … Continue reading
I have recently acquired the positively lethal combination of a Nintendo Wii (a wedding gift, thanks, Emily) and a NetFlix account.
While this has had a somewhat detrimental impact on my productivity, I have been able to catch up on a slew of movies that I had been wanting to see, but simply not gotten around to renting. My wife and I have been glued to the television for the past couple of days ticking … Continue reading
Halloween is quickly approaching! It’s time to break out some candy and watch a few movies to get you inspired. Here’s a definitive list of movies to celebrate your 31 days of Halloween, or 13 days or to celebrate all year long!
Of course there’s
John Carpenter’s Halloween and Rob Zombie’s Halloween (2007):
Children are supposed to be joyous miracles of life. They are cute, funny, and usually the best company to keep. No one associates kids with evil or the devil. They are pure and the epitome of all that is good in the world. Too bad the horror industry didnât get that memo. Writers have no problem transforming an angelic child into an evil being with no regard for goodness and morality.
The children of darkness … Continue reading
If we look at today’s horror output from major Hollywood studios we must ask the question “Is Hollywood making the same mistakes it has before?”
A quick glance at movies currently in production shows a terribly high number of remakes and sequels, (monikered as ‘franchises’ by production companies) much to the dismay of many horror fans.
It seems like major studios have bombarded us with unoriginal ideas for many a year now. Yet, we know … Continue reading
Pitting the all consuming ravenous wandering sensibilities of the office worker against the metaphorical embodiment of their undead doppelgangers is like watching cannibals eating cannibals. I am only left with imagery at this pointâŚpicture a sea of identical cubicles, each trying to be unique but intrinsically being the same thing. It is the battle of one thing knowing what it is, and the other, trying to dress like it … Continue reading
Hellraiser: Revelations, the ninth movie in the series inspired by Clive Barker’s novella The Hellbound Heart, has completed principal photography (in just 13 days of actual shooting time… yikes). A cut exists already, and the flick will hit DVD next year. Will it bring some fans back to a franchise that many have left for dead? Possibly. While the film was apparently rushed into production due to the impending end of the … Continue reading
So yeah, here we are at the time of year where a bunch of people start turning their attention to all things macabre. Well, kind of anyway. Halloween can be fun, with uproarious parties, movie nights, dressing up and all that other good stuff that goes with it. Is is any different for the avid horror fan? A little. This is the time of year that stores are filled with things that … Continue reading
Zombies are awesome. I really love a good zombie picture. Hell, they donât really have to be that good, I still love âem. Thereâs a certain charm about a reanimated corpse wandering mindlessly searching for flesh. Of course, a reanimated corpse is but one kind of zombie. Often an infection, or in the case of Meat Market, microscopic robots cause folks to suddenly want a skin sandwich. Sometimes a film doesnât even bother to explain … Continue reading
In the flood of independent films utilizing the âshaky camâ technique, Gareth Edwardsâ film âMonstersâ has emerged from the tepid waters as a film festival darling. The movieâs premise is unique for a horror film. It focuses on the relationship between a man and woman as they desperately try to make their way home from a foreign land infested with aliens. Instead of focusing on the monsters and the madness that would usually … Continue reading

The recent 7.0 earthquake in Haiti on January 12th 2010, which caused massive devastation in and around the capital city of Port au Prince is a tragedy and my heart goes to the people who have to suffer after this natural disaster. But it is feared there will be a rise of zombies.
I am sure George Romero is not on the next plane down there to capture … Continue reading
