‘The Mothman Prophecies’ – Cosmic Cryptozoology Horror Movie Is Still Thrilling 20 Years Later

Cryptozoology is woefully underexplored in popular culture. Sure, we have a handful of entertaining bigfoot flicks and even Zak Penn and Werner Herzog’s experimental Incident at Loch Ness, but where’s our big budget Jersey Devil thrillers?

Don’t Think It, Don’t Say It – Finding the Good in ‘The Bye Bye Man’ [The Silver Lining]

In this edition of The Silver Lining, we’ll be covering Stacy Title’s infamous urban legend adaptation, The Bye Bye Man. From Cropsey to Bloody Mary, several horror icons have been inspired by modern folklore.

’28 Days Later’ – Celebrating Two Decades of Danny Boyle’s Zombie Epic

Sartre famously wrote that “hell is other people”, and while it can be easy to sympathize with that statement, I think there’s more than one kind of hell. Despite a certain melancholic beauty in solitude, the fear of being alone is both primal and common enough that most people have nightmares about it at one […]

In this edition of The Silver Lining, we’ll be covering Universal’s underappreciated alien horror movie, The Fourth Kind.
