Remembering the Crazy 1976 TV Series MONSTER SQUAD!

In today’s TV landscape, horror fans are spoiled across all platforms when it comes to the type of programming they have to choose from. Long before Netflix, or even cable for that matter, horror shows weren’t produced as abundantly as they are today and finding a show with a decent amount of suspense in it could be […]

Horror & Sci-fi Coming to Netflix in April

The Netflix April line-up includes a lot of great comedies like TROPIC THUNDER and COOL RUNNINGS, as well as a nice assortment of kids’ flicks like KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS and THE BFG. But horror and science fiction are scant this month sadly. I was only able to tease out four genres titles from […]

Did You Catch This Great PSYCHO Homage On The Latest Episode Of BATES MOTEL?

One of the fun things about A&E’s BATES MOTEL is that although it has a great source to draw from, it hasn’t always adhered completely to the plot and structure of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 masterpiece PSYCHO. Yes, the 5 seasons of the show are intended to function as a prequel story of sorts, but not […]

AMERICAN HORROR STORY Goes Political in Season 7: What Are the Possibilities?

If it’s one thing Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s AMERICAN HORROR STORY has taught us it’s to always expect the unexpected… and nothing could have been more unexpected than Murphy’s recent announcement that the show’s seventh season would be covering a recent slice of terrifying history: the 2016 presidential election. Murphy later went on to […]

Five Reasons to Finally Catch Up with Slasher Series HARPER’S ISLAND

Premiering in April of 2009, CBS’s hour-long drama HARPER’S ISLAND was, alongside SUPERNATURAL, one of the earliest examples of a TV show going for broke providing hardcore horror of a kind that had previously been absent on prime time for quite a while — if at all. A slasher film masquerading as an Agatha Christie-style murder […]

The Five Most Brilliant Episodes from Season 1 of THE TWILIGHT ZONE

Picking favorite episodes of Rod Serling’s brilliant late ’50s to mid ’60s hit THE TWILIGHT ZONE is a daunting task. Every single season of the show has a few groundbreaking tales — but believe it or not, there’s a slight dearth of sublime episodes in its debut season. That said, the greats of season one are […]

Why You Need to Watch the TV Show RIVERDALE

When I first saw the advertisements for the TV show RIVERDALE, I was incredibly skeptical. An adult version of the ARCHIE comics? Oh I’d seen that before, and there were zombies. While I’d been mildly amused by some of the prior, more sophisticated inceptions of the Jughead, Veronica, and Archie universe, I was quite cynical […]

And just in time for the grand finale of this modern take on PSYCHO, we’re finally getting proper releases of composer Chris Bacon’s terrific score!

What Scares Batman? Five Episodes That Show Us The Dark Knight’s Greatest Fears

Recently, Warner Brothers was really scared. Ben Affleck dropped out of directing THE BATMAN, and it seemed like they were having trouble finding a replacement. Lucky for them, Matt Reeves signed the contract and for the studio and many Batman fans, the nightmare ended. For Batman, the nightmare may just be starting. We don’t know […]

New Horror Films Coming to Netflix in March

March looks to be a light month on Netflix for  horror titles, so I’m hoping they’ll sneak a few more in throughout the upcoming weeks. Some stand-outs are EVOLUTION which made it onto several top 10 lists from last year, THE CRAFT which is a sacred 90s teen witch flick, and MEMENTO which isn’t exactly […]

From BATES MOTEL To PSYCHO: The Sad Existence Of Norman Bates

Although considered a disappointment upon its initial release, both critically and commercially, I look back on 1986’s PSYCHO III in retrospect as the linchpin of the entire franchise. Helmed by Norman Bates himself Anthony Perkins, the sequel picked up immediately following the events in PSYCHO II, but did something that the franchise hadn’t really ever attempted before […]

Saluting the All-Time Creepiest “Monsters of the Week” From THE X-FILES

It’s winter… and if you’re like me and you live in the Midwestern US, chances are things have been pretty gray. See, starting in November, Ohioans retreat to our homes, where we grow very pale and irritable. We long to go outside, but shudder at the idea of even crawling out of bed if it’s […]

5 Tactics THE WALKING DEAD Should Implement in Season 7 to Win Fans Back

It’s no secret that THE WALKING DEAD has been in danger during season seven. Viewer tallies are absolutely plummeting. AMC isn’t going to dump the show on a dime, as 10 million viewers is still mighty impressive. But with dwindling viewership fewer dollars will roll into production, and the show could conceivably take a hit […]
