M. Night had previously hinted at the […]


Character Showdown – Who’s Your Favorite Scary Ghostface?

I wanted to do something a little different with “Character Showdown” this week. So far, each week we’ve been looking at various actors all tackling the same iconic role and comparing the differences. This week, I wanted to take a look at the SCREAM franchise, whose villain affectionately known as “Ghostface,” has always been a […]



To me, the key to a truly great “remake” of a pre-existing horror film is simple. Would the new update make a good double feature with the original movie? When it comes to programming a double feature, the goal is to find two movies with a similar theme that would complement each other. And there’s […]


CHARACTER SHOWDOWN – Who Is The Definitive Hannibal Lecter?

With the 3rd and now final season of NBC’s HANNIBAL now complete, and ending with a full on adaptation of RED DRAGON, the book in which we were first introduced to the character of “Hannibal the Cannibal,” a funny thing happened. Despite the fact that we’ve now had 4 actors portray this iconic horror legend, I […]

Face Your Fears With This Scary Clown Art!

Back in August of 2015, the Hyaena Gallery in Burbank hosted a tribute art exhibit to a topic they’d never tackled just yet. Clowns! While a large portion of the population suffers from a fear of clowns, or Coulrophobia, the gallery’s regular group of contributing artists not only encouraged this specific show, but relished in […]

The Strange History Of This John Wayne Gacy Painting

The Hyaena Gallery has been stationed right on Olive Avenue in Burbank for the last 9 years, providing the otherwise sunny side of town with “dark art.” While the gallery rotates their inventory and displays from a roster of amazingly talented artists on a regular basis, one of the first things I noticed when I […]


5 Things We Want To See In The Next ‘NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET’

Last month, it was reported that New Line Cinema has dreams of conjuring up another remake to the late, great Wes Craven’s seminal horror classic A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET. Like most fans, I took and accepted the news with much trepidation and skepticism, especially considering the general fan consensus regarding the 2010 Platinum Dunes reboot. But […]

We Talk “Cannibal” Films With GREEN INFERNO Director Eli Roth! The “Cannibal” sub-genre is such a unique thing, not only for horror, but for Italian cinema in general. I have a very distinct memory of catching a midnight screening of CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST, and all I can say is I was forever changed after seeing that film. What was the first of the Italian “cannibal” […]



When taking a second or five to recollect the third day of this year’s Fantastic Fest, the word that comes to mind is the overly used but in this case, very appropriate word EPIC. It was definitely one for the books, with impressive film premieres/screenings, and one odd yet absolutely amazing performance that I will […]



With this year’s Fantastic Fest film festival well underway, and after having such a great opening night of programming and events, one would think that perhaps the second day might be a tad bit slower and a relaxing day of film and event programming. Well, day two of the long running Austin, TX staple of […]
