• Alice, Sweet Alice Remake Finally On The Way?

    Read More

    Alfred Sole’s 1976 American giallo Alice, Sweet Alice is a cult favourite among horror fans that has otherwise been forgotten thanks to the difficulty in finding it, even in the Internet age. Plagued by both distribution and legal issues upon its initial release, the flick faded into obscurity, leading Sole to a career as a TV production designer. Back in 2013 his cousin, fellow filmmaker Dante Tomaselli (Horror, Satan’s Playground), announced […]

  • Horror Sequels That Are Truly Better Than the Original

    Read More

    There is a general consensus that sequels are rarely ever as good as the original. And while there are many great sequels out there, it’s still a good rule of thumb. There will always be more bad sequels than good because the genre is huge and everything seems to get a sequel, whether it should or not. That’s just the reality of things. Sequels that actually surpass the original are very […]

    Anyone who’s been lucky enough to share their life with a four-legged, feline friend will know that cats react to most things in much the same way as humans–often even more so. But how do they feel about horror movies? Do our feline companions have the capacity to handle scary stuff better than their human owners? The answer, it appears, would be a resounding ‘no’ as a new viral video shows a cute, young […]

Seven Comedic Sidekicks Who Shouldn’t be Funny (but are)

House II

Horror is built on certain archetypes. There are the sweet, sensitive leads and their often insensitive best friends. But the sidekicks are sometimes more interesting than the main characters of whatever film they’re in. Even when they’re grating they can be fun to watch. Some of them, simply because of their obnoxious standing as the loud best friend, seem almost designed to get on your nerves. And many of them are. […]

The Rock Says Big Trouble in Little China Remake Still Happening

Big Trouble in Little China

It’s hard to believe it has been nearly a year since the initial announcement of the Duane “The Rock” Johnson produced remake of Big Trouble in Little China. But, it has. When projects fall of the radar for this long, it’s usually a sign that they are dead or stuck in development hell. But The Rock has opened up about the project and assures our friends at Fandango that it is still very much […]

Comic Review: Puppet Master #15

Puppet Master #15

Issue fifteen of Puppet Master brings a conclusion to the Blood Debt arc, but it feels like a culmination of events that have been building from the very beginning. After all, Anapa has been building as the major antagonist of the series from the first issue, even though he was not revealed until halfway through the second arc. But where this issue succeeds is in the organic storytelling, which has […]

John Carpenter Signs On For Brand-New Halloween!

Poster for John Carpenter's Halloween.

The long-gestating Halloween reboot/sequel/re-imagining/whatever seemed like it was never going to happen – especially after the ill-advised 3D take was cancelled back in December, when Dimension Films lost the rights to the franchise. But now it seems our prayers have been answered as none other than horror production company du jour Blumhouse have teamed up with Miramax, Trancas International Films and Halloween franchise producer Malek Akkad, in what they’re describing […]

Comic Review: Death Follows

death-follows-cover

Death Follows is another winner by writer Cullen Bunn, one of the creative minds behind the wildly successful Harrow County series. The story begins in similar fashion, featuring a young girl named Birdie who lives on a farm with her family. Before long, a strange man shows up, and that’s when things take a turn for the disturbingly surreal. Readers wouldn’t expect anything less from this already noteworthy horror storyteller. The […]

Here’s What Most Fans Don’t Understand About Scream

Scream Poster

I love the Scream movies, as many fans do. I don’t think Scream, as a franchise, is necessarily divisive, but I do think that both the people who do and don’t like it are passionately vocal. But one of the biggest things I’ve noticed between Scream and other franchises is that sometimes I find myself agreeing with the people who don’t like the series. That never happens for me with […]

The Five Best and Four Worst Entries in the Nightmare on Elm Street Franchise

Vicious Freddy Krueger Kills. A poster for Wes Craven's A Nightmare on Elm Street.

Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street is one of the greatest horror movies ever made. That statement should be a given, but somehow there are still plenty who question it. Nightmare is such a smart, well written picture with a genius concept. It’s terrifying on every level. First, you have the very idea that a dream can kill you. Sleep is the one thing you can’t even hope to outrun, at least not […]

Green River Killer: A True Detective Story With More Heart Than Bite

STK680129

Green River Killer: A True Detective Story is a graphic novel written by Jeff Jensen and illustrated by Jonathan Case. It had the dangerous potential to either be another ridiculous piece of media (such as serial killer themed movies like Bundy and 8213 Gacy House) or a fantastic noir depiction of one of America’s most prolific serial killers and the detective who spent the better part of twenty years tracking him down.

Ten Hidden Horror Gems from the 1980s that Need to be Rediscovered

Prince of Darkness

Horror films really hit their stride in the 1980s. The creative minds went wild and the practical effects from that era were some of the best ever committed to celluloid. The ’80s brought a series of classics that are still beloved by horror fans, today; some of which are still being discovered and re-discovered. When we think of 1980s classics I’m sure The Shining, A Nightmare on Elm Street and The […]

10 Horror Films That Satirize Reagan-America

horror1

When surveying history from a media-centric approach, it is too easy to fall prey to vast oversimplifications. In regards to horror cinema–-a genre that oftentimes sees fit to hold a mirror up to society at large–-it feels comfortable prescribing certain fears and anxieties to the people of any particular time and place. Just as those of the Victorian era were terrified by Bram Stoker’s Dracula and its warnings of homosexuality, […]

Exclusive Interview: Bex Taylor-Klaus on MTV’s Scream

MTV’s Scream adaptation is due to return May 30th. The last season felt to some horror fans like a mesh between the existing Scream franchise and Pretty Little Liars from ABC Family/Freeform. The second season is set to take place three months after the first season ended and the killer was revealed. We spoke with actress Bex Taylor-Klaus who plays Audrey about what we can expect from the new episodes […]
