• Seven Episodes of Tales from the Darkside That Still Give Us the Creeps

    Read More

    Tales from the Darkside is one of the best horror anthology series ever made. Yet it is also a bit of an underdog. It didn’t have the mega success of Tales from the Crypt and it’s not a widely regarded classic like The Twilight Zone or The Outer Limits. But that doesn’t change the fact that it was a strong, often frightening series in its own right. The show was […]

  • Patriotic Horror Movies to Binge-Watch This Fourth of July

    Read More

    It may be strange to think of horror movies as patriotic. It’s a worldwide genre, for one, and the average Friday the 13th and Saw sequels don’t exactly reek of civic pride. But as with every other holiday, horror always comes through with a cash-in. Ironically, though, there are very few (if any) straightforward slashers to capitalize on the national holiday. The era of New Year’s Evil, My Bloody Valentine and […]

Advance Review – The Redwood Massacre

The Redwood Massacre

Hitting VOD and DVD tomorrow, July 7, from Uncork’d Entertainment is the Scottish slasher The Redwood Massacre. The film was written and directed by David Ryan Keith, who worked with a low budget and a small crew–only four people, including himself–to create a straight slasher that lacks in the story department, but more than succeeds in the gore and effects department. Twenty years ago, a local farmer went crazy and […]

Welcome to Cult Corner where we dive through the bargain bins to determine if a movie is trash or treasure. Today’s pick… Larry Buchanan’s Curse of the Swamp Creature.

Comic Review: Death Head #1

Death Head cover

Coming to us from writing team Nick Keller (Turner of the Century) and Zack Keller (co-creator of the cartoon Dick Figures), Death Head is a new horror comic, and I’m not entirely sure what to make of it quite yet.

Story Within a Story: Why the Structured Narrative of Candyman Works so Well

Poster for Candyman 1992

Candyman is, without a doubt, one of the best horror films of the 1990’s. This was a decade in which horror was constantly questioning and trying to redesign itself. What had worked in the 1980’s? What hadn’t worked? This sort of questioning ended up actually being what defined the genre in that decade, truly giving birth to the age of the meta horror on film. Scream was notorious for this and, appropriately, […]

How Bride of Frankenstein Set the Template for Every Horror Sequel

poster for The Bride of Frankenstein

Everyone has their favorite horror sequel. And, of course, everyone has their least favorite as well. Following up a classic can be incredibly difficult to pull off. The first problem is justifying why the movie even needs a sequel to begin with. Many never get past this stage. Just because people are left wanting more doesn’t mean they actually need more. Still, there are great sequels to horror films out there. There are ways […]

Hannibal Recap – Season 3, Episode 5

Poster for the NBC drama Hannibal

Hannibal is now five episodes into what will probably, sadly, be its final season. The show has perhaps been moving at a much slower pace than some viewers would like, but so far the season has been the one that is the most focused on its central characters, with less of the procedural element of the previous two seasons. And now things are definitely getting more interesting, especially with episode […]
