Why “When a Stranger Calls” (2006) was Better Than Expected

Released in the midst of the torture porn boom and American remakes of Asian horror films, it’s no surprise that the 2006 remake of When a Stranger Calls has largely been forgotten.  Many initially disregarded it and just another PG-13 unnecessary rehash of a beloved horror classic.

In Defense of Rob Zombie’s “Halloween” Movies

So it seems a bit sudden and out of left field that Morgan Creek … Continue reading Why We Don’t Need an Exorcist Reboot

“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
