What Makes “Creep” So Unsettling

We often judge horror movies based on how scary they are, which admittedly is extremely subjective. But do we ever rate them based on how “unsettling” they were?   Scary is of course, the kind of fright that we feel in the moment, on the edge of our seats while watching. And unsettling is the type of dread that we feel long after watching. One such … Continue reading What Makes “Creep” So Unsettling

“Yummy” – Movie Review

When it comes to undead, flesh-eating zombies, “yummy” probably isn’t a word that comes to mind, unless you have a very dark sense of humor. This is pretty common among horror fans, and Shudder’s newest zombie original, aptly titled Yummy captures just that. It’s not the over the top humor that last week’s Scare Package relied on. Rather it’s much more subtle and witty (no … Continue reading “Yummy” – Movie Review

15 Fun Facts About “Land of the Dead”

We sadly lost the godfather of zombies three years ago, but George A. Romero’s legacy remains intact.

“The Final Girls” An Awesome, Lesser Known Gem

When it comes to meta slashers, films like Scream, Cabin in the Woods, and Behind the Mask are often the first to come it mind. And while all of these satirically poke fun at horror tropes, none go quite so far into deconstructing slashers than the often overlooked The Final Girls.

“The Stepfather” 1987 vs. 2009

Let’s not forget that Father’s Day is also a time to celebrate stepfathers and all that they do. For the most part, they’re very kind and loving, and treat their stepchildren as their own. But in the very rare case, they’re actually murderers who go form family to family searching for the perfect one. So in the spirit of that, we thought it would be … Continue reading “The Stepfather” 1987 vs. 2009

“Scare Package” – Movie Review

Between Wes Craven’s New Nightmare, Scream, Cabin in the Woods, Behind the Mask, and many more, one could say that meta horror has become a subgenre in its own right. Shudder’s latest original, Scare Package, tows this line between meta and downright parody, all while presenting itself in an anthology style that horror is so well known for. The result is an out of control … Continue reading “Scare Package” – Movie Review

30 Fun Facts About “Gremlins 2”

The 80s was filled with slasher movies, awesome music, cool gadgets, video stores, and of course, tiny little critters capable of unimaginable destruction. Gremlins was a runaway hit in 1984, and remains the 4th highest grossing movie of that year. So its 1990 sequel was pretty much inevitable.
