Modern Vintage Horror: Eyes Of My Mother

When generations pass there is always a battle against the development of newer ideas, in art this is even more apparent especially in music, television and of course movies. Horror is no stranger to this advancement, and many prefer the classics with their simplistic styles of fear and little to no blood, others like the…

Hunted By The Pack

For thousands of years dogs and humans have lived with  an unspoken bond, ever since wolves evolved into cooperation with mankind our mutual understanding and trust has been beneficial to both species. Though not all men have had the noblest and truest intentions breaking that trust, every year millions of dogs are released into the…

Scourge Of The Outback:Razorback

If you follow my blog it’s clear that I consider the 80’s the Golden Age of Horror, I am a huge fan of practical effects as well as giant monsters in the “Natural Horror” genre and the 1980’s was abundant with both. There is a film that without question  clearly holds all these qualities,an Ozploitation…

Don’t Hang Up Review

In the age of Saw it is difficult to make a well constructed smart horror, the eight sequels have failed  adding nothing more than gore porn. Don’t Hang Up decently recreates smart horror in more of a reproduction than homage but what movie is not a duplicate from the story that preceded it? Two high…

Horror Anthologies bring together separate short films into a larger landscape to create one cohesive frightfest for the delight of the fans, there have been many great ones over the years but none can compare to the legacy of Creepshow.

Oculus: The Eye From Hell

To say horror fans are divisive on movies would be an understatement, though sometimes we may disagree on what is considered good or crap I think it should be remembered and understood  what matters is our shared enthusiasm for the genre. Howard Lovecraft put it best when said “Searchers after horror haunt strange, far places.”…

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….

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…

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…

Eli Roth’s Party Favor: Clown

 Eli Roth is a name that attracts movie goers, his body of work proves he is a pivotal force in shaping the genre bringing horror to the new age. Hostel reinvented  ‘body horror’, creating physical terror that will leave the audience ill at ease  similar to what  Clive Barker created with his legendary  Hellraiser.  It is without…
