Why a Good Filmmaker Can Turn Any Concept Into a Scary Movie

One of my biggest pet peeves is when people claim a movie is great just because it has a great premise. Whether it’s “Come on! Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig are cowboys who fight aliens!” or “How could you not love a movie where the PRIDE AND PREJUDICE girls fight zombies?” Some people seem to think that […]

The Bernard Rose FRANKENSTEIN Is The Modern Take We’ve Been Waiting For

When it comes to the legend of Frankenstein, I’m always cautious about any new project baring the famous creature’s moniker, if anything because there have already been so many re-interpretations of this same story.

CHARACTER SHOWDOWN – When Both Bens From NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD Rule!

DOUBLE TAKE – NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD 1968 / 1990

To me, the key to a truly great “remake” of a pre-existing horror film is simple. Would the new update make a good double feature with the original movie? When it comes to programming a double bill, the goal is to find two movies with a similar theme that would complement each other. And there’s […]
