Yeah, I like Buffy the Vampire Slayer… I didnâ€™t say â€ślikedâ€ť, I said â€ślikeâ€ť… present tense. I realize that the series lasted from 1997 to 2003, but Iâ€™ve found myself revisiting the seriesâ€™ seven seasons often. However, the more I dust off the DVDs, the stronger I feel that instead of Buffy ending in 2003, the series actually died in May of 2001.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (BTVS) has become a cult … Continue reading
While writing this column has brought my attention to details of various sides to the 2012 topic, my imagination has also been running wild as I consider the possible outcomes, prophecies and theories. This enhanced perspective I am taking has also encouraged me to ask questions, such as: â€śWhat is really going to happenâ€¦honestly?â€ť
This question is obviously one that anyone who knows about 2012 predictions wants answered. Speculation of apocalyptic … Continue reading
Satellite TV and cable are constantly trying to up the ante by producing shows that are edgier and more innovative, and yet it can still be hard to find a program that is entertaining and mentally stimulating. AMCâ€™s The Walking Dead, however, has both entertainment value and mental stimulation in spades. While on the surface it’s only a program about the zombie apocalypse, when you look closer you’ll find it’s … Continue reading
Baal, among one of the 7 princes of Hell has often been associated as being one in the same with the demon Beelzebub. This is primarily due to the name of Beelzebub breaking down into its alternate spelling of Baalzebub or Baal zebub. This particular demon has also been confused with the Semitic deity known as Ba’al. To further confuse my readers, in the Christian New Testament, Baal is spoken within the same … Continue reading
Demon Profile: Beelzebub
Ah, Beelzebub, a name most feared and used quite often in film and literature. His stance of power is a claim to being one of the 7 princes of Hell. While his name translates into the “lord of flies” or the prince of demons, Beelzebub is often associated or presented as being Satan himself. Certainly the flies aspect has been played to, more than once within popular demonic based films … Continue reading
As we move forward with different subject matters within the horror spectrum of fiction and non fiction, we will be taking on different profiles of mass proportion to serve as reference points within articles. This is primarily driven at isolated studies and general references that might appear in some of the fiction films we cover. We’ve always felt it makes for a richer experience……that is, to provide resources that cross reference each other for … Continue reading
The Basilisk is one of the more obscure mythological creatures. This particular beast originates from European bestiaries and ancient legend. It’s contribution comes in the from of being noted as the king among serpents causing death with just a single piercing glance.
While it is a relatively small creature the size of “twelve finger lengths”, its venom is noted as being able to leave behind traces of poison as it crawls forward. Oddly enough … Continue reading
In our quest to categorize great movie moments, the idea of chainsaw usage came to mind. Certainly there are more than 10 films with chainsaws being used, though this wood cutting device has been featured in a few that exceed expectations. Now out of fairness, this whole list could probably feature all Asian movies, as they tend to tack on chainsaws to body part pretty frequent. Though we limited it to 2 of the most … Continue reading
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
As an avid cinematic aficionado since early childhood Iâ€™d embraced the opportunity of attending the annual Canadian Film Fest with bedazzled awe. With mixed feelings of neurotic nervousness and preconceived notions the event would serve copious quantities of artsy, pretentious content that would require an interpreter for later translation I walked into the gala ready for anything and everything. My initial impressions could not be further from the truth.
Kicking off the … Continue reading
Now that the much anticipated Season 2 of The Walking Dead has ended, in the coming weeks Iâ€™ll continue to be bringing you a special look at our beloved cast of characters and a peak at some new ones. This week weâ€™ll look at Hershel Greene.
Hershel Greene is head of the Greene family and takes care of the Greene farm. Scott Wilson portrays Hershel. He is the father to Maggie and Beth … Continue reading
Do you know what the greatest part of my job is? It is that I can get bored on a Friday night, get the awesome idea to give something away, contact a kick ass series creator, and BAM! I can give something away to cure my boredom!
Here we go. To all my horrorphiles at home on a Friday night, I am going to give you the opportunity to win each of the 8 new … Continue reading
“When there’s no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth.”
Zombies are linked to the basics of human nature, they play upon our fears of infectious disease, death and turn our switches on to the need to survive. They are the walking dead, following their basic instincts, which is to feed. They are de-evolution at it’s finest and most of the time no one knows how the infection spread but it … Continue reading
While the psychos and the scream queens get most of the press, there is much more to creating a great horror film than the visual aspect. The horror soundtrack is an art form in its own right, and there are many collectors out there who crave the very finest examples of the genre, almost to the point of mania. But what does make a perfect horror movie soundtrack?
In recent years there has been the … Continue reading
Released in 1981, The Beyond, directed by Lucio Fulci, has long been considered the Italian filmmakerâ€™s masterpiece of gore.Â It has amassed a horde of devoted fans throughout the years, including Quentin Tarantino, who would praise and re-release the film.Â At this point I can already hear you shouting at me through the paper, â€śWait, we know all this already!Â So what?â€ťÂ Â Well, believe it or not there are horror fans … Continue reading
I’m willing to bet that “scariest horror films” has been uttered or searched for at least once in every horror fans lifetime. If your like me, it was literally several times a year hoping that a new titles would pop out that didn’t include the words “The Exorcist”. (That being meant in a somewhat sarcastic tone) The 1 film that “always” gets … Continue reading
Those anticipated gems that haunt you until final release. Maybe they lives up to expectations, maybe not..or just maybe they enter into your close circle of top favorites of all time? This happened a few times for me. One was with the release of “Insidious“, another was that inspiring “Dawn of the Dead” remake and then the one that surprised alot … Continue reading
Okay, so I am sure that I am about to ignite a sh*t storm that will most likely include me getting tons of hate male threatening me and calling me a ton of derogatory names (as well as questioning my taste in movies and my sanity in general), but I wanted to put this list together anyway. Without further ado, here is my list of the 10Â most overrated horror movies of all time that most … Continue reading
What’s this? Your anticipating Valentines Day…and you want to load up on Valentines Day themed horror films? We are guessing that this list only gets really looked at 1 time a year, but hey…..you never know when you might be quizzed on coming up with titles for the event? We’ve scoured the masses and pulled up a “real” small hand full of Valentines Day movies that actually have something to do with Valentines day. Now … Continue reading
This is a topic that I have done my best to stay out of this year for reasons that far surpass those that are already public record. Honestly, I would still be keeping to myself but since I keep getting asked for my opinion by related and unrelated parties, I will go into here and let it be the end of it.
I am ALL for a good debate on issues between people who feel … Continue reading
Horror is a genre that waxes and wanes on the media of television, and we have been seeing a resurgence in the recent years. From older television series, such as the â€śTwilight Zoneâ€ť (1959-1964), and â€śThe Outer Limitsâ€ť (1963-1965), to the more modern â€śX-Filesâ€ť (1993-2002), horror has graced our sets for many years. The current trend of remaking older movies has now transitioned into bringing old television shows to light on the big screen. â€śDark … Continue reading
Asian horror films on the most part fall somewhere between “deep to my heart” to recycled nonsense. Though I do enjoy the thrill of weeding thru all the stinkers to find the gems. For anyone new to these, they present a special brand of fear and dread that is far removed from many Western releases. In fact, I’m quite confident in saying that Asian films tend to rule in the ghost and loony categories. Usually … Continue reading
