I know I can’t be the only one… Summer is upon us, and once again my Facebook feed is filled with posts about who would be brave enough to watch Jaws on the big screen, while floating on a lake. These screenings pop up all over the place, the most famous of which being the Alamo Drafthouse in Texas. And while many horror fans yearn … Continue reading The Joys of Immersive Horror Viewing
2019, R, Directed by Gary Dauberman, Warner Brothers/New Line Cinema, 106 minutes Nobody ever expected something as simple as the Annabelle doll would be getting an entire trilogy of films, but here we are. Initially, it seemed like nothing more than desperate cash grab by Warner Brothers, which was still completely true. But in a strange turn of events, each entry in the spinoff series … Continue reading “Annabelle Comes Home” Movie Review
Definitely one of the most lasting images of the Conjuring franchise, Annabelle, the cursed doll, has become something of a pop culture icon. So much so that there are as many movies about Annabelle as there are actual Conjuring films. Despite all three entries in this trilogy being complete works of fiction, the real history and stories surrounding Annabelle, are arguably far more terrifying. The … Continue reading The Disturbing “True” Stories Surrounding the Real Annabelle Doll
2019, R, Directed by Lars Klevberg, Orion Pictures, 90 minutes Upon first hearing that there would be a Child’s Play remake, I must admit, I was not a fan of the idea. Remakes are nothing new in Hollywood, and while they’re usually hit or miss, this one struck close to home. Child’s Play is responsible for me being the devoted horror fan I am today. … Continue reading “Child’s Play” 2019 – Movie Review (Spoiler Free)
Child’s Play, like all horror franchises, has had its high and low points. However, it’s also one of the only franchises (along with Phantasm) that can boast having the same screenwriter for every film…until now that is. This new remake is certainly stirring up strong opinions, but we’ll wait until it comes out and judge it by its own merits. But in meantime, let’s take … Continue reading Ranking the Entire Chucky Series!
Out of the many exciting announcements from E3 this week, the most exciting for horror fans was a compelling and creepy trailer for an upcoming Blair Witch game (just in time for its 20th anniversary). The 1st person nature, and creepy setting really lend themselves to a game, and hopefully it turns out great. But upon seeing that trailer, it got me thinking about other … Continue reading 5 Horror Movies That Would Make Awesome Video Games
2019, R, Written and Directed by Jim Jarmusch, Focus Features 105 minutes Between Zombieland, Shaun of the Dead, and Anna and the Apocalypse, we’ve had our fair share of zombie themed horror-comedies. But we’ve never seen a film quite like The Dead Don’t Die. Writer/Director Jim Jarmusch brings his own unique, surreal, and deadpan (no pun intended) style to the zombie subgenre. What results is … Continue reading “The Dead Don’t Die” Movie Review (Spoiler Free)
I first heard it from my grandfather. It was his 80th birthday party (which would have made me five), and he said it with a raspy laugh full of phlegm, “That’s it, one year closer to death!” My mom yelled at him for scaring me. But strangely enough, I wasn’t frightened, at least not then. At the time I was intrigued, as if my grandfather … Continue reading Short Story – “Happy Birthday”
