Written by Jason McDonald, October 5, 2015
The 31 Days of Scares isn’t a countdown of the best horror movies.  In fact, it’s not even about the best movies. It’s simply about some of my favorite “scares” or scenes from horror movies and they’re in no particular order.  So there’s no need to debate countdown order. It’s pretty random.  With that said:

Written by Jason McDonald, September 14, 2015
While horror is good for escapist entertainment it is, arguably, at it’s best when it shines a light on society and reveals our truest fears.  Throughout the decades horror movies have managed to reflect the issues that were plaguing our society.  Decades ago movies highlighted our fear of the atomic age with movies that showed

Must See 80’s Horror Movies
Written by Gwendolyn Kiste, August 3, 2015
When the average person thinks of the 1980s, shoulder pads, power suits, and Huey Lewis and the News come to mind.  But when most horror fans imagine the decade, visions of Camp Crystal Lake, raucous Gremlins, and the Overlook Hotel tend to beat out Madonna and Ronald Reagan as the prevailing icons.  Back then, horror
