“The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia” – 10 Years Later

One of the first things that stands out about 2013’s The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia, is that the title contains two states that are nowhere near each other.  As a result of this confusion, as well as it getting only a limited release in the US (most people thought it was just direct to video), Ghosts of Georgia (which is what the … Continue reading “The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia” – 10 Years Later

The result was a much darker take on some of … Continue reading “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters” 10 Years Later – A Campy, Fun Horror/Action Thriller

20 Years Later: How “28 Days Later” Changed the Zombie Genre

We have George A. Romero to thank for creating what we now know as the modern zombie genre.  His 1968 classic Night of the Living Dead not only took the world by storm, but it established many of the tropes that we now associate with zombies.  Prior to that they were primarily associated with Hatian folklore. And while there were a slew of zombie films … Continue reading 20 Years Later: How “28 Days Later” Changed the Zombie Genre
