Europa’s Sea Monster

In Arthur C. Clarke’s  2010: Odyssey Two, Jupiter’s dense atmosphere ignites turning the giant into a small star, this concept is not far off from many ideas that NASA has about our solar system’s 5th planet from the sun. It is believed and theorized that Jupiter is a failed star leading many to speculate that…

Critters Ate The Farm

Carnivorous space hedgehogs armed with poisonous spikes and an insatiable appetite escape from an intergalactic prison, travel to earth and attack an unsuspecting family of farmers with space bounty hunters hot on their trail. Sounds like a standard 80’s schlock creature feature, and it was, but it also symbolized the pinnacle of 80’s  horror classics….

Justice League Dark….Very Dark

I should first point out that I am in no way a fan of the DC Universe, I find it non comparable to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and I make that apparent in a previous editorial I wrote “Marvel vs DC.” That being said the animated DC movies are far superior to the DCU as…

Lifeforce-A Time When Vampires Were Evil

Tobe Hooper, the name says it all with accolades of horror directed, written and produced. The most infamous is the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Poltergeist though even Hooper himself stated that Spielberg had more to do with the direction of that film than he did. Among Hooper’s classics should be noted his space vampire masterpiece…

Friend Request From The Dead

In my opinion Friend Request received a raw deal from the start, being released after the sub-par horror film Unfriended which immediately left a sour taste for social media based horror not only in the fans of the genre but general audience as well. I am going to go out in defense of Friend Request…

Residue of Evil

Most of us have seen Stranger Things on Netflix, hell even non horror fans have watched it and absolutely loved it, the accolades of nominations speaks for itself. Netflix has proven to be a force against traditional television and pay stations when it comes to programming, and while the standard means have to adhere to…

Like A Rat In A Cage 47 Meters Down

Shark movies keep getting better and better despite SyFy Channel’s best efforts. 47 Meters Down was originally titled In The Deep which was also the original title for the Blake Lively film The Shallows released this summer. 47 Meters Down was originally scheduled to be released early Summer 2016 to pull in from the draw from…

Dissection of Evil-The Autopsy of Jane Doe

The underground horror scene is rife with underrated and unhyped movies just waiting for the large scale audiences to discover, The Autopsy of Jane Doe is one of these hidden treasures. Secreted into limited release and vanishing into streaming services this film is the first English-language release from Norwegian director Andre Ovredal who created the…

Goodbye AHS, Hello The Exorcist

The Exorcist is the long awaited show that horror fans deserve- now you may say “What about The Walking Dead or American Horror story?” but let us be honest The Walking Dead is more survival drama with closer ties to the likes of Lost than to the genre of horror and American Horror Story… I…

Review: The Neon Demon

The Fashion World has teeth! The Neon Demon is a fascinating film  layered in many levels, a rare treat full of cameos that will leave you wondering why it did not get a larger release for national distribution. Nicolas Winding Refn wrote and directed this disturbing picture, anyone that has seen Bronson (Tom Hardy) and…

Hard Candy: Spider Trapped in own Web

“‘Welcome to my parlor.’ said the Spider to the Fly.” The statement from  Mary Howitt’s poem The Spider and The Fly echos the predator and prey relationship. Imagine if you will the scenario of the Spider being the unknowing prey and the Fly with a secret of it’s own. In Hard Candy Ellen Page is…
