  • Review-Unfriended is as Bad as it Gets

    Read More

    While I could start this review by discussing in detail how important the Internet and technology have become to us, I’m not going to. We all get it. We all know how much we rely on the net, and we all know very well how the younger generation uses and abuses it. So, a horror movie based around the web and cyber-bullying is not far-fetched at all; however, when you […]

    In the 21st century it is hard to come across someone who doesn’t have some sort of social media profile, or someone who hasn’t engaged in activities on the web. We’ve become technology-dependent and have trained the young to know how to take their first selfie before they can utter their first words. This dependency has made uploading your every move online the norm and it has made us susceptible to […]

Why Motel Hell is a Smart, Satirical Horror

Motel Hell, 1980

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is the quintessential barbecue horror movie, if such a thing exists. It may even be surprising to learn that there are others, but Texas is a benchmark in the wide spectrum of food industry horror. There’s so much horror already apparent in food and the way that we treat it that none of these pictures seem like too much of a stretch. That’s a large […]

Famous Fictional Towns Based on Real Places

Salem's Lot poster 1979

Many works of horror include fictional locations that have become iconic. Some are used over and over again, whether it be in a franchise like Halloween or in many different works, as has been done frequently by authors such as Stephen King and H.P. Lovecraft. Location is incredibly important in horror. It can provide the appropriate atmosphere and establish the feeling that this could happen anywhere. I admit a more […]

Old-School Horror Comics That Should Make a Comeback

Tomb of Dracula

Horror and comics have had a longstanding relationship for many, many years. Some of the very first comics were horror stories, which make sense as the modern comic book spun out of traditional pulp novels. In the 1950’s, horror comics like Tales from the Crypt dominated the marketplace. They were so influential and were such an outrage for adults that they led to the book, Seduction of the Innocent which […]

Poster for John Carpenter's The Thing

John Carpenter’s The Thing is often heralded as his masterpiece. It really is one of his best, in addition to being one of the best sci-fi horrors, one of the best body horrors, and just one of the best horror films in general. The movie is virtually flawless. Yet it was completely unpopular when it was released. Unlike other Carpenter works which may not have made a huge dent at […]
