Lost on VHS: MAKING MICHAEL JACKSON’S THRILLER

I have a confession to make: When I was a kid, I was a huge Michael Jackson fan — so much so that I took a little heat from it from other kids. Despite this, I was scared to death of the THRILLER music video. I grew up in a time when my Dad would […]

How BATES MOTEL Restored The PSYCHO “Legacy”

There was a very distinct reason I took it upon myself, with no actual filmmaking experience, to make THE PSYCHO LEGACY documentary. And the finale for A&E’s hit series BATES MOTEL solidified that reason. Plain and simple, I wanted the PSYCHO “legacy” to continue and I feared that, at the time that I started it, […]

Five Horror Movie Diseases You Wouldn’t Want to Catch

I’m a bit of a hypochondriac, so when a character in a movie or TV show just gets a cold or a touch of the flu, that freaks me out a little bit. But I watch horror movies almost exclusively, so you can imagine my despair when there’s a medical element to any film I’m […]

School’s In Session! Mick Garris Interviews Joe Dante For POST MORTEM!

I love filmmaker interviews. But they’re even better when it’s one friend and colleague from the horror genre chatting with another. No one does it better than Mick Garris, the creator of the “Masters Of Horror” series, and director behind several Stephen King adaptations, and most recently on television shows such as DEAD OF SUMMER, RAVENSWOOD […]

They Bite! Remembering CRITTERS 30 Years Later

When it comes to the “tiny-terror” subgenre of horror movies that rose to prominence in the 1980s, some would think first of Joe Dante’s 1984 hit GREMLINS. But for others, the mini-monster movie franchise that springs to mind will forever be CRITTERS, starring those tiny, razor-toothed, bouncing space porcupines with an attitude as voracious as their […]

Remembering Showtime’s MASTERS OF HORROR: Season Two

Ah ha! Victory is mine — I have successfully binge-watched every episode of MASTERS OF HORROR in two weeks’ time. When we last discussed MOH, we examined possible reasons people might have overlooked the quality of this show. I found both seasons to be enjoyable and grisly, though with a few episodes that weren’t for me scattered […]
