Ranking Every “Prom Night” Movie

When it comes to slasher franchises, the Prom Night movies often get overlooked.  Partly because none of the films were as groundbreaking as something like Halloween or Nightmare on Elm Street.  Partly because, unlike most other slasher series, the Prom Night movies don’t follow the same killer movie after movie.  Technically neither does Scream, but it’s still the same costume and collective killer we refer … Continue reading Ranking Every “Prom Night” Movie

“Blood Rage” 35 Years Later: A Trashy Comfort Food Slasher

For classic horror fans, there’s a comforting charm to the gritty, sleazy, vintage slasher movie.  Produced on shoe-string budgets, these films came during the original slasher boom of the late 70’s/early 80’s and capture a sort of time capsule of a time when independent filmmaking was a wild west, and places like grindhouses and drive ins would play the most absurd and insane of exploitation … Continue reading “Blood Rage” 35 Years Later: A Trashy Comfort Food Slasher

What’s the Best Slasher “Requel”?

They say that originality is dead, and given the number of rebranded, soft-rebooted movie sequels, it’s easy to see why so many feel that way.  And the horror genre hasn’t been immune to this.  We all recall the 2000’s when there was a wave of remakes of slasher classics.  Leatherface, Michael Myers, Jason Vorhees, and Freddy Krueger all got the remake treatment, and for the … Continue reading What’s the Best Slasher “Requel”?

Ranking Every “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” Movie

Arguably the first true slasher (or at least in the running for it), the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre was truly unlike anything audiences had ever seen before.  Much like Michael Myers, Jason Vorhees, and Freddy Krueger, Leatherface has become a cultural icon due to the longevity of his franchise.  So with the recent release of the new “requel”, and all the internet debate that’s followed, … Continue reading Ranking Every “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” Movie

Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2022) – Movie Review [Spoiler Free]

When every other horror franchise is struggling to maintain relevance in today’s climate, what’s a vintage backwoods slasher to do but try to keep up.  It seems like this was the primary motivation for the latest entry in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series.  The new Netflix original goes the Halloween 2018 route (in more ways than one), and the result is very much a mixed … Continue reading Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2022) – Movie Review [Spoiler Free]

Paramount and Spyglass Greenlight 6th “Scream” Movie

In a move that should surprise absolutely no one, Paramount and Spyglass Media announced earlier today that they have greenlit a 6th installment in the Scream series.  Following a massive box office success (grossing over $100 million in just the first three weeks of release), Scream 2022 has proven to be the Spider-Man: No Way Home of the horror genre. Of the new movie, both … Continue reading Paramount and Spyglass Greenlight 6th “Scream” Movie

Ranking Every “Scream” Movie

When it comes to self-aware, analytical horror, no franchise comes close to Scream.  Not only did it revitalize slashers in the late 90s, but its meta approach seems to now be the standard for any modern slasher that hopes to rise above the old tropes. So with its latest installment tackling the infamously prevalent “requel”, we thought it would be fun to jump on the … Continue reading Ranking Every “Scream” Movie

Scream (2022) – Movie Review [Spoiler Free]

In an age of cheap cash grab “requels” that are devoid of anything new or original (we’re looking at you Halloween 2018, Force Awakens, and Jurassic World), one meta series has returned for a post post-modern look at the genre.  Scream (2022) may be as un-originally titled as several other “requels” or “soft reboots”, but it is in no way like the rest. Return to … Continue reading Scream (2022) – Movie Review [Spoiler Free]
