Trailer for Documentary ’78/52′ Dissects the Shower Scene from ‘Psycho’
Written by Jason McDonald, August 31, 2017
This sounds uniquely ambitious.  Imagine take one scene from one movie and devoting a whole documentary to it.  That’s what director Alexandre O. Phillippe has done with the legendary shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho.” Documentary “78/52,” named so for the 78 set-ups and 52 cuts in the scene, will examine the shower scene frame

‘Gallows 2’ Was Secretly in the Works and is Having Test Screenings
Written by Jason McDonald, August 30, 2017
Remember “The Gallows?”  It was one released back in 2015 to some pretty poor reviews, but since it was a micro-budget horror film it earned a pretty decent chunk of cash.  Enough so that someone apparently greenlit a sequel to the film and didn’t tell anyone. Thanks to a posting on 1iota, a site used

Written by Jason McDonald, August 30, 2017
There’s no getting around it. Victor Salva was convicted of some pretty god awful things.  After some deep consideration I decided that I wouldn’t be covering “Jeepers Creepers 3” on the site.  I know that goes against what I’m “supposed to do,” but the great thing about this site is we can talk about whatever

Written by Jason McDonald, August 29, 2017
Notorious B.I.G. warned us that things like this could happen, but Warner Bros apparently wasn’t paying attention when he told us that mo money could, in fact, lead to mo problems. With the “Conjuring” universe continuing to expand, it looks like Warner Bros could have potentially more to lose. When author Gerald Brittle penned ‘The

Chris Columbus Says ‘Gremlins 3’ Will Be as Dark as the First Film
Written by Jason McDonald, August 16, 2017
It’s been a long time coming, but it looks like the fabled third “Gremlins” movie is even closer to becoming a reality.  And while many may fear what a modern day “Gremlins” film would be like, it sounds like “Gremlins” director and writer on “Gremlins 3” is trying to keep the film in the spirit

[REVIEW] ‘The Dark Tower’ Takes a Few Familiar Stephen King Missteps
Written by Jason McDonald, August 8, 2017
I should kick this off by saying that “The Dark Tower” is one of those Stephen King novels I just haven’t gotten around to reading.  Perhaps if I had I would feel stronger about how the film turned out.  Still, even without having read the novel I was excited  purely because of the cast and because

Written by Jason McDonald, August 3, 2017
You ever have those movies that you swore came out or that you think you saw and just completely forgot about?  “Before I Wake” is one of those movies for me, but thankfully, now I know I’m not crazy. Now I know I haven’t seen it because it never came out in the US. For

Written by Jason McDonald, July 28, 2017
There are a lot of things that look pretty damn good about the new “It” film.  It has a solid cast, a good director, and the look of the film seems to capture the essence of that era.  However, the one thing that everyone is eager to see is how the new Pennywise will turn
