While we normally talk about things that currently exist or that may exist very soon, this week we’re taking a look at something that never existed. When “The Nightmare Before Christmas” was initially released, it wasn’t a very popular movie.  But the film survived by being a cult favorite and then it resurged into pop [...]

Written by Gwendolyn Kiste, Posted 20 Days Ago. | 11 Comments
Without a doubt, Alfred Hitchcock is one of the greatest purveyors of cinema the silver screen has ever seen. While most of the Master of Suspense’s films are more thriller than horror, modern day genre auteurs will forever owe Hitch a huge debt for his ability to terrify in even the most mundane situations. After [...]

Forgotten Horror Gem: The Old Dark House
Written by Gwendolyn Kiste, Posted 28 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
It was a dark and stormy night. Really. That’s exactly how The Old Dark House opens. From the outset, you’d be justified in expecting a trope-laden failure of early cinema. But if you want cardboard characters and predictable sequences, then search elsewhere because this 1932 forgotten masterpiece is anything but ordinary. Let’s start with the [...]

The Art-Horror Film: Genius or Pretentious?
Written by Gwendolyn Kiste, Posted 37 Days Ago. | 2 Comments
Under penalty of potential ostracism, I’m about to confess something no horror fan should ever utter (or type). I don’t really enjoy Dario Argento’s films. Ditto Mario Bava. I’m not big into Stanley Kubrick or Val Lewton either. From the 1930s surreal vampire flick, Vampyr, to the wannabe giallo potboiler, Don’t Look Now, these so-called [...]
