If you’re as big a Chucky fan as I am, then you no doubt didn’t hesitate to pick up CHUCKY: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION Blu-Ray boxed set from a few years back.

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, […]

Examining “Gay Panic” Themes in the Vampire Classic, FRIGHT NIGHT

In Harvard Professor Marjorie Garber’s invaluable 2000 work BISEXUALITY AND THE EROTICISM OF EVERYDAY LIFE (one of the only notable scholarly works on bisexuality, although Kenji Yoshino’s THE EPISTEMIC CONTRACT OF BISEXUAL ERASURE also comes recommended), she posits (to make a generality about her work) that bisexual women are typically eroticized in films to directly […]

First Trailer For Tom Holland’s Latest ROCK PAPER DEAD!

Tom Holland is synonymous with great horror. After all, he’s the fellow that directed FRIGHT NIGHT, CHILD’S PLAY, brought Norman Bates back in his screenplay for PSYCHO II, and helmed several Stephen King adaptations including THINNER and THE LANGOLIERS. He’s remained fairly active between writing, directing the anthology horror shorts collection TWISTED TALES, and overseeing […]

My Life In Commentaries

I don’t know how the hell I got the opportunity to be the moderator on several horror titles that sit proudly in my Blu-Ray collection; movies that I would’ve bought regardless of if I had anything to do with their releases. But like most things that come out of just being passionate, it kind of […]

Check Out Chucky The Salesman In This Rare CHILD’S PLAY VHS Promo Video

Bless the internet. And in particular You Tube because you can always find some of the strangest oddities on there. Sometimes it’s commercials or weird late night things you vaguely recall seeing as a kid. Other times, it’s promotional videos that serve as a time capsule, a relic of a time now long lost much […]

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 […]

Believe It Or Not, These Actresses Were Almost Mary In PSYCHO 2!

While Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 masterpiece PSYCHO will always be considered a watershed moment in cinematic horror history, over the years, it’s 1983 sequel, helmed by director Richard Franklin from a script by Tom Holland, has also become it’s own revered horror classic! A big part of what makes the movie still hold up so well […]

Five of the WEAKEST Horror Movie Weaknesses

I think it’s fair to say that everybody has a weakness. (Mine is the STEP UP franchise. I love it. Don’t judge me.) And weaknesses are meant to be exploited, especially by screenwriters who need to come up with some way to defeat the evil masterminds inside of their movies. Vampires burn in the sunlight, […]
