Fifteen Years Later: A Look Back at the State of Horror in 2009

Can you believe it’s already been fifteen years since 2009? I feel older than Jason’s mother’s head. But never mind all that. We’re going to look into the past in celebratory fashion today and take a month-to-month look at what the world of horror looked like back in 2009. The dreaded month of January kicked […]

Mutants, Monsters and Mayhem: Looking at the Body Horrors of the ‘X-Men’ Films

Many of us were excited about the prospect of The New Mutants a few years ago. The sales pitch of an “X-Men horror movie” sounded like a match made in heaven. As often happens, the film that was released was far more of a pillow fight than the cage match I’d hoped for. But as […]

‘Pacific Heights’: Fresh Off ‘Batman’, Michael Keaton Went Full Psycho in This ’90s Thriller

It’s Cape Fear meets ‘The Burbs in director John Schlesinger’s (Midnight Cowboy, Marathon Man) Pacific Heights. Although you might be fooled by Hanz Zimmer’s score, which sounds a lot more like you’re watching Sexy Beetlejuice than a ’90s thriller. This is pure irony, of course, considering the film stars Beetlejuice himself, Michael Keaton, as a […]

‘Land of the Dead’ 19 Years Later: Romero’s Return Was Smarter Than the Average Zombie Movie

One of my all-time favorite movie quotes comes from David Arquette as Dewey Riley in Scream 2 when he says, “How do you know that my dimwitted inexperience isn’t merely a subtle form of manipulation, used to lower people’s expectations, thereby enhancing my ability to effectively maneuver within any given situation?” There’s something about Land […]

Why ‘The Crow: City of Angels’ Is Worth Bringing Back from the Dead

Whether you consider The Crow: City of Angels cursed or simply made in bad taste by a studio (Dimension Films) that couldn’t care less, a rewatch more than twenty years later is a real eye-opener in terms of the film as a standalone experience. I remember being a kid who thought Brandon Lee as The […]

Cocaine Dog: 30 Years of Canine Carnage in the Underrated ‘Man’s Best Friend’

In November of 1993, writer/director John Lafia (Child’s Play 2) unleashed Cujo Cocaine Bear (great punk band name) upon the world with Man’s Best Friend. In the movie, a Tibetan Mastiff named Max 3000 is released from a genetic research facility by a reporter named Lori (Breakfast Club’s Ally Sheedy) while trying to expose a company for their cruel experiments on […]

The Horror of ‘Primal Fear’ and One of the Greatest Movie Twists Ever

Looking at director Gregory Hoblit’s filmography (Fallen, Frequency, Fracture), it’s hard to not notice this man has a type and it’s not just movies starting with the letter F. Hoblit worked in the bygone era of original dramatic thrillers with storylines that occasionally bumped elbows with the horror genre. None more so than his 1996 […]

Kurt Russell vs Ray Liotta: ‘Unlawful Entry’ Remains an Overlooked ’90s Thriller

In a world where superheroes, sequels, horror (thankfully) and anything IP related are king, it seems as though the risqué original thriller has gone by the wayside. Over the past ten years or so you’d be hard pressed to find anything other than The Invisible Man, You Should Have Left, Gerald’s Game, Gone Girl, or Knock, Knock that […]

These 4 Horror Movies Deserved to Be on the Big Screen in 2023

Technology giveth and taketh away. We can watch most movies with the click of a button from our couch but no longer have the joy of going out to the video rental store. We can also buy and digitally “own” any movie at a moment’s notice, but more and more, physical copies of movies aren’t […]

‘Skinner’ – 1993 Serial Killer Slasher Starring Ted Raimi Remains Under the Radar After All These Years

Found in your local “Shower After Watching” section of the suspicious flea market around the corner is 1993’s Skinner.  And it’s probably the only movie in that bin to feature an acting performance from daytime talk show host Ricki Lake. Seriously. This little piece of rarely spoken about horror history is one part Henry: Portrait of a […]

The Halloween After Party: November Horror Releases from 1970 to 2023

Who on earth would want to release a horror movie in November?! That’s like showing up to Thanksgiving dinner on a full stomach or going for a jog after a marathon. Surely, studios don’t purposefully plan to release their movie during the four weeks AFTER the entire world is consumed with the dead, dying, maimed and […]

4 of the Most Horrifying David Fincher Movie Moments

In anticipation of his new film, The Killer, coming to Netflix on November 10, I tip-toed through the tulips of my favorite director’s filmography and came away thinking that if David Fincher ever decided to fully wade into the waters of the horror genre? We’d all be in deep shit. In the best of ways. Here are the […]

“Eerie, Indiana” – Five Quintessential Episodes of the 1990s Series You Need to Watch

There’s something about Eerie, Indiana that brings out even more early ’90s nostalgia than a pair of MC Hammer pants or A.C. Slater slamming you into a locker. Right up there with Are You Afraid of the Dark? as some of the all-time best gateway TV horror for kids, Eerie always felt like a must watch if you […]

6 Horrifically Brutal Martin Scorsese Movie Moments

“Back home, they would have put me in jail for what I’m doing. But out here? They’re giving me awards” – Robert De Niro’s Sam Rothstein, Casino. Martin Scorsese reminds me a lot of the late Wes Craven. Both of them with such kind demeanors that are in paradox to the horrors of the art they create. […]
