Finding the Good in Neil Marshall’s ‘Hellboy’ Reboot [The Silver Lining]

In this edition of The Silver Lining, we’ll be covering Neil Marshall’s ill-fated comic-book adaptation, Hellboy. From Sin City to Umbrella Academy, Dark Horse Comics has always lived up to its name by betting on oddball titles and unusual creators. While there’s no shortage of iconic characters that were first introduced in the pages of […]

Slaying in Style: Six of the Most Badass Weapons in Survival Horror Video Games

The fight or flight response is at the heart of every Survival Horror experience, with these games often encouraging players to flee combat entirely and live to fight another day. However, characters will sometimes find themselves with their backs against the wall, and that’s where weapons come into play. From rusty pipes to pocket-knives, videogames […]

‘Grave Encounters 2’ – Reevaluating the Horror Sequel 10 Years Later [The Silver Lining]

In this edition of The Silver Lining, we’ll be covering John Poliquin’s underrated sequel, Grave Encounters 2. Maybe it’s the fear of madness, or perhaps it’s the uncomfortable history of how mental illness used to be treated, but there’s definitely something about psychiatric hospitals that makes them such a compelling location for scary stories. From […]

Killer Kids: Six of the Best Evil Child Performances in Horror

From huggable dolls coming to life as voodoo-powered murderers to lovable St. Bernards becoming rabid monsters, there’s nothing more disturbing than the subversion of innocence. That’s why the horror genre is simply chock-full of creepy children. From ghostly apparitions to undead cannibals, these pint-sized horrors make great villains precisely because of their disarming demeanor. After […]

Exploring the Weird World of Cancelled ‘Silent Hill’ Games

Being a Silent Hill fan can be pretty rough. While fellow survival horror franchises like Resident Evil never stopped releasing sequels, remakes and adaptations, it’s been a decade since the last official Silent Hill game. And even then, most of the games released after the original Team Silent disbanded weren’t exactly masterpieces to begin with. […]

‘Over the Garden Wall’ – The Gateway Horrors of Cartoon Network’s Halloween Miniseries

Horror fans have to start somewhere. You don’t just watch a VHS copy of Cannibal Holocaust and immediately start loving the genre (or at least I hope not), and that’s why Gateway Horror is so important. Like training wheels for spooky media, these stories are meant to introduce audiences to the recurring tropes and iconography […]

A Definitive Ranking of the ‘Silent Hill’ Video Games

For nearly a decade, Silent Hill existed only in our restless dreams, with Konami refusing to finance any new projects and not even facilitating the rerelease of previous games. Sure, there was a spark of hope when Hideo Kojima revealed P.T. and his plans for a franchise reinvention, but that promising endeavor was soon replaced […]

Unlikely Survivors: Six of the Best “Final Kids” in Horror

Horror has always been a matter of perspective. The maniac with a knife just isn’t as intimidating when he’s facing off against a SWAT team, and the only thing keeping Predator from turning into an all-out slasher flick is the size of the protagonists’ biceps. It’s a lot easier to fear for a helpless victim, […]

‘Shin Godzilla’ – The Lovecraftian Horrors of the Cosmic Monster Movie

Monsters have been representing primal fears since time immemorial, and the best of them are capable of adapting to evolving societal fears. From werewolves occasionally becoming metaphors for puberty to zombies going from supernatural slaves to viral consumerism, there’s plenty of multifaceted creatures to choose from. That’s why it’s fitting that the King of the […]

‘Resident Evil’ – The Original Movie Looks Pretty Damn Good 20 Years Later

The Resident Evil franchise is responsible for some of the most chilling moments in interactive media, forcing players to confront man-eating biohazards since the mid 90s. This massive success is ongoing, with new sequels and remakes releasing pretty much every year, but what I think is amazing is that this series of games with little […]

Appreciating the Cosmic Thrills of 2014 Alien Horror Movie ‘Extraterrestrial’ [The Silver Lining]

In this edition of The Silver Lining, we’ll be covering Colin Minihan’s alien abduction thriller, Extraterrestrial!  At one point, it can be argued that the Vicious Brothers were one of Canada’s most influential filmmaking duos, only challenged by the Soska Sisters in genre cinema. While these punk-rock partners (who aren’t really brothers) skyrocketed to stardom […]

Freddy vs. Jason vs. Spawn: Six of the Best Licensed Fighters in ‘Mortal Kombat’ History!

Memorable characters were always the heart of Mortal Kombat. Sure, the fighting mechanics are engaging and the lore behind the eponymous tournament is goofy fun, but it’s the ever-expanding roster of bloodthirsty martial artists that keeps us coming back for more. And while the franchise appeared to have peaked back in 2006 with the release […]

Finish Him: Six of the Most Gruesome Fatalities in ‘Mortal Kombat’ History!

Mortal Kombat has always boasted in-depth fighting mechanics and impressive graphics (be it via painstakingly digitized actors or modern-day HD renders). That being said, there’s no doubt in my mind that the gnarly Fatalities were what really motivated Mortal Kombat‘s massive success.  These elaborate finishing moves were so violent that they become a source of […]

Losing Hope: Re-Evaluating the Shocking Ending of ‘The Mist’ 15 Years Later

Content Warning: Suicide It may not be one of Stephen King’s most popular stories, but The Mist is still a surprisingly influential piece of genre fiction. From Half-Life to Silent Hill, several horror properties have openly drawn inspiration from this eerie novella. That’s why it’s surprising that it took so long for the story see […]
