Forgotten Horror Gem: The Old Dark House
Written by Gwendolyn Kiste, Posted 137 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 145 Days Ago. | 5 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 [...]

Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 153 Days Ago. | No Comments
I meant to post this yesterday, but that tingling little headache I felt at the end of the day started to turn into a full-blown migraine.  Yay.  But now, much like E3, my migraine is over and I can think clearly now about my hands-on experience with “Dying Light.” I got the chance to demo [...]

The original “Friday the 13th” was set on June 13th 1980 (although in “The Final Chapter” the grave for Mrs. Voorhees incorrectly says she died [...]

Hands-On with The Evil Within
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 154 Days Ago. | No Comments
I survived E3! I descended into the pulsating mass of people that converge on the LA Convention Center for the annual gaming event and have returned with a hands-on look at a couple of upcoming games.  Thankfully, I took some notes, because my brain has been jellified after being pounded with rhythmic beats blasted at [...]

10 Indie Horror Films Every Horror Fan Should See!
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 158 Days Ago. | 16 Comments
There was a bit of noise out of the Independent Spirit Awards recently surrounding the idea of ‘independent’ or ‘low budget’ and what that means. A twenty million dollar budget and a huge promotional machine behind a film seems, to me anyway, to strip away a little of what makes a film ‘independent.’ That said, [...]

Rocky Horror Wedding Proposal
Written by Shaun Huhn (CineNiche), Posted 158 Days Ago. | No Comments
This is for the unconventional conventionalists. In 1975, while Jaws was taking a bite out of mainstream audiences, there was a film released for the counter culture. The Rocky Horror Picture Show took a while to find its niche, but once it did the midnight crowd was never the same. Rocky will soon celebrate his [...]

Call me a Luddite, but I harbor inherent suspicion toward all technology. Yes, I’m an online writer and I take full advantage of the wonders that computer tech afford us. However, there are some things we’ve surrendered, all for the sake of convenience. Video stores are one of those vanquished victims. You might think the [...]

Top 10 Creature Feature Movies
Written by Carrion, Posted 162 Days Ago. | 41 Comments
Generating this top 10 list of creature feature movies was not easy. The first stumbling block was the definition of the term “Creature”. What defines a creature? Can it be something ordinary like a crocodile or a shark, or does is it need to live in a black lagoon? I turned to dictionary.com for some [...]
