Watch the Latest Blumhouse Original Creepypasta Video — LEADER LADY

Following the succulent success of last week’s grisly installment HOSPITAL FOOD (for strong stomachs only), we’re back again with another original creepypasta video – and much like our earlier chapter A LITTLE NIGHTMARE, our latest episode delves into a mysterious footnote in cinematic history. Have you ever watched an older film that still had color bars, […]

Watch Our Grim and Grisly New Creepypasta Video HOSPITAL FOOD!

The latest installment in our creepypasta web series is definitely not for the squeamish… especially if you’re even slightly afraid of visiting the hospital. All others, brave on… I won’t get too deep into plot spoilers on this episode, but you can probably tell from the title it’s not going to end happily for the […]

When Jason Met Arsenio: The Weirdest Talk-Show Interview Ever

It’s kind of amazing how little the culture refers to Arsenio Hall anymore. Hall, to remind you, was a well-known actor and comedian who appeared in such films as HARLEM NIGHTS, COMING TO AMERICA, and the funniest segment of AMAZON WOMEN ON THE MOON. He voiced Winston on THE REAL GHOSTBUSTERS, and had guest appearances […]

EXCLUSIVE: Blumhouse.com Original CREEPYPASTA Video THE MESSAGE

Back in September, we premiered our first original creepypasta video — a short adaptation of a little-known but extremely chilling 4chan thread entitled THE LAST TRAIL [check it out here]. Viewer feedback was so positive that we started production on new installments, with an eye on launching a dedicated creepypasta video series in 2017. As writer […]

Slashback! Remembering Siskel & Ebert’s Misguided 1980 Anti-Slasher Campaign

Before I launch into this week’s column, I want to make one thing very clear: I have always had and still maintain the utmost respect and admiration for America’s most famous film critics — Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel. Not one episode of their PBS series SNEAK PREVIEWS, which ran from 1975 to 1981, was missed in […]

SNARK WEEK! Before SHARKTOPUS, There Was MONSTER SHARK!

It’s time to bid a moist farewell to another Shark Week… and with it, my goofy little theme of alternative shark programming (which began with an ode to the gloriously awful SyFy opus GHOST SHARK and a re-examination of JAWS 2 from a slasher fan’s perspective). But I’m not going down without a fight… even if […]

CREEPYPASTA: The Unsolved Mystery of THE SIMPSONS’ Infamous “Dead Bart” Episode

If you’ve been staying on top of our bi-weekly creepypasta coverage (if not, you can catch up quick with our list of the Ten Creepiest Creepypastas), then you’ve probably noticed how many of these nightmarish viral legends revolve around allegedly “lost” episodes or missing footage from children’s TV shows. While many stories concern strange and obscure […]

Five Memorable Things About THE WALKING DEAD, Episode 610: “The Next World”

Daryl and Rick go out on a supply run, and while they have success, they meet Jesus, another survivor who wants their supplies. It is hard to get a read on Jesus. He did try to steal the supplies from Daryl and Rick, but he doesn’t use violence. Elsewhere, Spencer goes out on a personal […]

Five Curious Things About X-FILES: Episode 3 — “Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster”

For those who have been a little “meh” about THE X-FILES’ return, this episode should restore your faith. It is loaded with humor, weirdness, and geeky guest stars (Rhys Darby). Plus there are a lot of in-jokes for long time X-philes. Mulder is starting to lose his belief in monsters, but luckily a new case […]
