Why George Romero’s LAND OF THE DEAD Deserves a Second Look

For many of us who grew up during the 1970s and the ’80s, the original George A. Romero zombie trilogy — NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, DAWN OF THE DEAD, and DAY OF THE DEAD — was where it was at if you were a horror fan. Rumors of George doing a fourth movie in […]

What a Trip: Revisiting the Mind-Blowing Epic BEYOND THE BLACK RAINBOW

Sci-fi is better when it’s freaky. I’m all in favor of a good, rollicking spaceship adventure (who isn’t?), but science fiction, as a genre, tends to function more naturally when it’s dealing with freaky abstracts and barely-graspable Big Ideas. The promise of the sciences, after all, is to help humanity come to a much deeper […]

Five Ghosts and Creepy Anomalies Found in Feature Films and TV Shows

There is a ton of home-shot footage on the Internet that purports to capture ghosts, monsters, or UFOs, but shaky cellphone footage is easily faked, and hoaxers are plentiful. For lasting paranormal gravitas, you have to capture inexplicable phenomena in a feature film or TV show. Since no one wants a spirit to mess up […]

Trigger Happy: The Hallucinogenic Horror of Shaye Saint John

Back up, boys and girls… this is gonna get weird. In a way, the following story fits into the pantheon of creepypasta without necessarily being labeled as one; that’s mainly because the mythos which has grown up around the utterly bizarre, surreal and morbidly fascinating character named Shaye Saint John has long since overshadowed the […]

CREEPYPASTA: Is This the Actual Cursed Video Known as THE GRIFTER?

When I wrote my first article on the creepypasta phenomenon for this site, I covered some of the most notorious viral legends that, at the time, might have been dwarfed by the long, scary shadow of Slenderman — but are just as disturbing (if not more so) and widely-shared among creepypasta fans. Since then, these […]

Childhood Captured: Revisiting MONSTER HOUSE!

Some of the best films ever made are the ones that manage to capture — with accuracy — a universal childhood experience. If there’s one thing every human being can relate to, it’s being a child, and an enriched and enhanced cinematic exploration of childhood can only bring out the intensity of that time. Whether […]

We spent a number of years wondering why werewolves were rarely spotted in film. The truth is, most probably can’t give you a fact-based answer. A lot of makeup work goes into these film, a lot physicality is required and a fairly hefty price tag must surely come affixed. But don’t those rules apply to […]

You’d Better Watch Out, or Santa and Krampus Will Make You Their CHRISTMAS B***H!

At this point, not only have horror fans totally embraced the infamous Germanic holiday demon known as Krampus [thanks in part to eye-opening articles like these, thank you very much], but popular culture has also managed to catch up with the Krampus Kraze… but in the process, the monstrous hell-spawned punisher of naughty children might […]
