Written by Jason McDonald, February 18, 2018
Okay, I need to be honest here. I love me some Henry Rollins, but I still haven’t gotten around to seeing “He Never Died.”  I’ve heard some mixed things, but it seems like the majority of it is good.  So it looks like I should probably finally get around to seeing it as a sequel

Fangoria Lives! – The Horror Magazine Has Been Resurrected
Written by Chris Savage, February 16, 2018
It truly was a said day when Fangoria, the magazine, suddenly disappeared. It had been a horror staple for most of us from 1979, and I’m sure it is where many of us first got our insight into what goes on behind-the-scenes. But, all is not lost. It appears as if the magazine is set

‘The Nun’ and ‘Predator’ Get New Release Dates
Written by Jason McDonald, February 15, 2018
Release dates used to mean something, you know?  Before you’d get a date and it’d be set in stone. Now you have movies coming out the day they’re announced.  It seems that the only thing that’s certain, when it comes to release dates, is that they’re bound to change. Take, for example, these two high

Written by Jason McDonald, February 14, 2018
Man, I feel like I got to witness the early development of this project. I remember a few years ago I was in an interview with Jason Blum and we got to talking about video games when he mentioned that he had this game on his phone called “Five Nights at Freddy’s.”  At this point

[Review] ‘Inoperable’ Shows Small Signs of Life
Written by Jason McDonald, February 11, 2018
It’s rare that it happens, but every now and then I come across a movie that intrigues and bewilders me just enough to keep me interested for 90% of the movie only to fumble the ball right before the endzone.  “Inoperable” is one such movie. In “Inoperable” Amy (Danielle Harris) wakes up to find herself

Written by Jason McDonald, February 11, 2018
The recent revitalization of Chucky through home releases has been a welcomed surprise as the films have been solid so far.

[Review] ‘The Ritual’ Brings Horror Back to the Woods
Written by Jason McDonald, February 11, 2018
It’s been awhile since we’ve had a good “creepy stuff is happening in the woods” film.  Some might say the recent “Blair Witch” sequel filled that niche, but it just didn’t satisfy my craving.  Wait, did you hear that rustling?  Sounds like it came from behind the trees . . . Come on, let’s go

Written by Jason McDonald, February 9, 2018
I’m patiently waiting for that Kevin Bacon “Tremors” series to finally get off the ground over at SyFy, but in the meantime, I’m more than happy to get more Burt Gummer in my blu-ray player.  Universal has released the first trailer for the upcoming sixth “Tremors” film titled “Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell.” In

‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Unleashes a New Trailer
Written by Jason McDonald, February 5, 2018
Oh man, I really want to be watching “Cloverfield Paradox” right about now, but until then I guess we’ll talk about “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.”  The new trailer released during the Super Bowl didn’t add a whole of info, but it certainly included new footage that has now raised new questions for me. For example,

‘Winchester’ Debuts at the Third Spot this Weekend- Did you Watch?
Written by Jason McDonald, February 4, 2018
I’ve been to the Winchester Mansion and, despite all the mystique surrounding it, it’s a fairly normal building without much “spookiness” surrounding it.  It certainly is unique and fascinating, but it never struck me as the kind of place that was haunted even though the way it’s designed was to deal with spirits.  However, that

Written by Jason McDonald, January 31, 2018
I’ve had a rocky relationship with the “Purge” series, but overall I have to say I’ve enjoyed my experience with the series as a whole.  And while there are many things I enjoy, I think one of the problems I’ve had is how hamfisted they are about their social commentary.  The word “subtle” does not

First Trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s New Film ‘Unsane’
Written by Jason McDonald, January 30, 2018
Steven Soderbergh is back out of semi-retirement and doing crazy stuff.  For example, his new film “Unsane” is filmed entirely on an iPhone . . . and it kind of shows.  However, it also kind of looks pretty good.  I’m a little undecided on this one. In “Unsane” . . . A young woman is

Written by Jason McDonald, January 29, 2018
Netflix has dropped a new trailer for their upcoming psychological horror film “The Ritual” and it shows that, no matter what country you’re in, you should probably just stay out of the woods.
