Henry Fuseli’s Nightmare Painting

Henry Fuseli’s painting The Nightmare represents the earliest entry of the visual arts into the Romantic and Gothic movements. Painted in 1781, The Nightmare came at a time when the Neoclassical era was coming to an end. Due to Neoclassical’s connection to the Enlightenment, the artistic movement focused on structure, restraint and objectivity in its works. The painting A Philosopher …

Best and Worst Horror Films of 2018

It’s Oscar season once again. That special time of year when Hollywood pats itself on the back for producing countless drab and forgettable dramas while offering breadcrumbs to far more interesting fare that doesn’t match up with whatever message they want to communicate. Unique cinema if often overlooked by the academy and no genre has suffered that treatment as much …

Serial Killer Films Compendium (P-Z)

The following article is the third and final part of a three-part list of films featuring serial killers.

Q&A: The Omen (1976) Movie

Movie: The Omen (1976) – Questions and Answers This time, I concluded the unholy trilogy from Hollywood with The Omen, likely one of the most supposedly curse films surpassing the claims of The Exorcist and equaling that of Poltergeist. Director Richard Donner noted these incidents plaguing the production and the PR firms championed them during the production, however if one …

Universal Monsters

In 1928, Carl Laemmle Senior made his son, Carl Laemmle Junior, head of Universal Pictures as a 21st birthday present. Woo hoo! Universal already had a reputation for nepotism – at one point, seventy of Carl Senior’s relatives were supposedly on the payroll. Many of them were nephews, resulting in Carl Senior being known around the studios as Uncle Carl. …

Fatal Films: Ten Movies Haunted by Lethal Tragedies

While researching this list, I came to the wholly unscientific conclusion that the most dangerous movie sets for performers and crew members are those for sword-and-sandals movies, followed by aviation flicks. Strangely, not a lot of search hits came up for accidents and deaths associated with horror movies, unless the comic VAMPIRE IN BROOKLYN (see below) qualifies. This is by …
