Happy Birthday Stephen King: A History of Stephen King Film Adaptations
Written by PoppaScotch, 1 Day Ago | 5 Comments
It’s extremely hard to dispute the fact that Stephen King hasn’t had an effect on all things horror since his first novel Carrie was released back in 1974.  In the time since, Stephen King has became an international success and the recipient of much deserved critical acclaim.  His first novel Carrie was also his first [...]

Written by Gwendolyn Kiste, Posted 23 Days Ago. | 3 Comments
For the inaugural Horror Sidekick Spotlight, let’s travel back to the 1930s when cinema was still in its infancy and horror films were just getting their claws into the world’s psyche. Perhaps no actor in Hollywood history has embodied the mischievous minion quite like Peter Lorre. Arguably, his most famous films were his collaborations with Humphrey Bogart, including The [...]

Cannibalism, Sexuality and Zombies, Exploring The Walking Dead
Written by Stephanie Joyce, Posted 27 Days Ago. | 6 Comments
They finally done it. Robert Kirkman and the crew behind The Walking Dead finally gave  the audience something to be afraid of that is perhaps more bone-chilling than the flesh-eating zombies in the first 4 seasons; free-thinking “humans” (and I use this term loosely) that choose to put their morals behind them and eat other [...]
