[Review] ‘Red Christmas’ Delivers a Strange Holiday Present
Written by Jason McDonald, October 16, 2017
It’s a dangerous game when horror films try to touch on a divisive political issue.   If you go too far with it, you beat your audience over the head with the message.  And if you botch the attempt, you alienate and upset people.  However, not going far enough can also be a problem.  There are

[Review] ‘Happy Death Day’ is a Good Time You May Not Want to Relive
Written by Jason McDonald, October 15, 2017
It’s your typical slasher film scenario.  A college girl finds herself the target of a masked murderer and ultimately meets a grisly end. However, in this story death is only the beginning. “Happy Death Day” stars Jessica Rothe as Tree, a self-absorbed sorority girl who treats everyone around her like human garbage.  Even on her birthday

Now that George Romero Has a Star on the Walk of Fame How About Jack Pierce?
Written by Jason McDonald, October 13, 2017
Earlier today it was revealed that George A. Romero was going to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. And of course it goes without saying that the star is well deserved as George was integral to not only creating the modern zombie, but being a fantastic horror movie director. However, when I

Did You Know There Was a Michael Myers Young Adult Book Series?
Written by Jason McDonald, October 12, 2017
We’re celebrating a pretty obscure anniversary here.  Twenty years ago this October Michael Myers entered the world of Young Adult books with a three book series centering on teens running afoul of the infamous killer. While slasher flicks tend to appeal to a younger demographic, it’s still weird to imagine Michel starring in a Young

‘Beetlejuice 2’ Shows Signs of Life
Written by Chris Savage, October 12, 2017
Okay, it may only be a slight pulse at the moment, but the long gestating sequel, Bettlejuice 2, is ever so slowly moving forward. According to the folks over at Deadline, Mike Vukadinovich will rewrite Beetlejuice 2 at Warner Brothers and that’s pretty much it, for now. Tim Burton and Michael Keaton are said to be

First Image and Release Date Released for ‘Strangers: Prey at Night”
Written by Jason McDonald, October 12, 2017
Sometimes it’s hard to believe that we’re actually getting a sequel to “The Strangers.”  I keep expecting this whole thing to be some cruel joke.  That one day we’ll wake up and it’ll be revealed that there is no sequel in the works. Well, now I can rest easy, because “Strangers 2” is even more

First Trailer for X-Files Season 11 Drops at New York Comic Con
Written by Jason McDonald, October 8, 2017
Yeah, okay, the last season of the X-Files was pretty hit and miss. They had some episodes I really enjoyed and some episodes that made me want to just walk away from the series.  Still, based on some of the things said about the upcoming season, I have some hope left for the series. During

Written by Jason McDonald, October 8, 2017
We’re living in the era of films being secretly filmed and it’s actually pretty rad.  Recently we learned that “The Gallows 2” is currently undergoing test screenings and then of course there was the high profile example of “The Woods” actually being “The Blair Witch.”  Well now we have another found footage film that’s been

‘Ash vs Evil Dead’ Season 3 Release Date Announced
Written by Chris Savage, October 6, 2017
I’m sure many of you, myself included, were getting a little worried about the third season of Ash vs Evil Dead, as there had been little to no information regarding if or even when the third season would arrive, especially when we expected it to follow suit with a release in October. But, word has come that the

Written by Jason McDonald, October 6, 2017
Do you remember when Tom Cruise’s “Mummy” came out this year? Holy hell, that seems like a lifetime ago.  Do you also remember when it got absolutely crushed by critics and underperformed at the box office?  Well that might’ve been a bad sign for Universal and their whole Dark Universe initiative. Now there are further

[Review] ‘Cult of Chucky’ Proves that the Little Guy Still Has It
Written by Jason McDonald, October 4, 2017
Hard to believe that we’re barely getting to a seventh Chucky movie.  With the speed at which franchise horror movies tend to come out, it feels like we should be on our twentieth film by now.  Thankfully, though, Chucky likes to take it slow and as a result that seems to have ensured that the

‘The Mist’ has Been Cancelled After One Season
Written by Jason McDonald, September 28, 2017
Well, as we saw with “The Dark Tower,”  all Stephen King adaptations can’t be winners or even “It.”  And it would appear that “The Mist was not one of those winners. Spike has announced today that they are cancelling their adaptation of “The Mist” after one season.  Spikes take on “The Mist” was drastically different

Knott’s Scary Farm 2017 Review
Written by Jason McDonald, September 28, 2017
As far as I’m concerned the Halloween season kicks off when the haunted attractions start to roll out.  This year I got the season started at Knott’s Berry Farm with their annual Halloween event Knott’s Scary Farm. This year featured two brand new attractions with seven returning mazes injected with new thrills and additions to freshen

‘Sabrina the Teenage Witch’ is Coming Back with a Horror Themed Show
Written by Jason McDonald, September 21, 2017
Remember “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” with Melissa Joan Hart? That was a fun show what with the two hot aunts and the talking cat and all that.  If you’re even more old school than your image of Sabrina might be from the old Archie comics.  However, if you’ve been keeping up with your Sabrina lore

The Original Ghostface Mask Returns for the New Season of ‘Scream’
Written by Jason McDonald, September 21, 2017
I, along with many people, had some initial concerns about the MTV “Scream” series.  It was hard to imagine MTV managing to pull off a good “Scream” series especially when they revealed their horrendous new version of the mask which looked like it was giving a blow job. However, I personally thought the show was
