Written by Jason McDonald, April 21, 2018
Despite being a hit with critics and beloved by “Evil Dead” fans, it seemed like “Ash Vs Evil Dead” was always fighting to stay alive.  Perhaps it was because on a premium network like Starz or the fact that more and more people seem to be cutting their cords these days, but the show only

Conceptually, October seems like it’s impossibly long time away.  However, it’s only actually six months out.  SIX MONTHS.  We’ve already passed up four, so six months are just gonna fly by.  Hopefully… And while I’m generally excited for October to come around for all the festivities, this October is shaping up to be extra special

Another weekend has come and gone (ugh) and two new films entered the box office fray against last week’s champion “A Quiet Place.”  Last week “A Quiet Place” blew people away by earning an impressive $50 million in the domestic box office.  Along with the impressive financial debut the film also had a ton of

Art Bell, former host of Coast to Coast AM, Has Passed Away at 72
Written by Jason McDonald, April 15, 2018
As horror fans I tend to think most of us are fans of the supernatural.  Are ghosts real?  Have we been visited by extraterrestrials? Is there a giant ape roaming our woods?  Even if you ask these questions in jest, it’s still something horror fans love to talk about and, perhaps, the most well known

[Review] ‘Mohawk’ A Historical Thriller with a Dab of Supernatural Horror
Written by Jason McDonald, April 15, 2018
American history may be still a recent occurrence relative to the rest of the world, but there are plenty of events that lend themselves to unique settings for stories.  However, a compelling stance to take is to examine that history from the perspective of someone treated as an outsider in their own homeland.  And that’s the

‘A Quiet Place’ Could Have Wound Up in the ‘Cloverfield’ Universe
Written by Jason McDonald, April 11, 2018
In a world where Bad Robot seem eager to retrofit movies currently in production into “Cloverfield” sequels, it would not have been too much of a surprise if “A Quiet Place” suddenly revealed itself to be a stealth “Cloverfield” film.  And while that rumor was swirling around before the films release it, thankfully, did not

[Review] You Should Find ‘A Quiet Place’ This Weekend
Written by Jason McDonald, April 7, 2018
While I was a fan of “The Office,” I worried that I’d never be able to watch John Krasinski in anything else without imagining him doing the “Jim face” and looking directly at the camera.  That’s the downside of playing such a loveable character for so long, it becomes exceptionally hard to severe the association

I’ll be honest, while I’ve been interested in what “The First Purge” will turn out to be, I wasn’t really paying attention to the casting.

Written by Jason McDonald, April 4, 2018
Man, the Hollywood machine is a fickle beast.  One minute you’re celebrating the announcement of a theme park attraction based on your show and the next you’re being accused of taking someone else’s idea for your show. Matt and Ross Duffer are being accused of “lifting” their idea for “Stranger Things” from a 2012 short

‘Stranger Things’ Comes to Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights
Written by Jason McDonald, April 4, 2018
I have an ever growing list of films and horror properties that I’d love to see brought to life at Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights. Shockingly, though, I never even considered “Stranger Things” to be a possibility, but now that you mention it . . . Yeah, that would be a pretty rad addition. And
