The following video has been floating around online for years, but given that it’s Thursday afternoon here, and this is usually the day when people throw it back to something cool, this is worth bringing attention to again!

Ten of the Most Terrifying Horror Trailers Ever Made

Word of mouth will ultimately separate the great from the average, but strong promotional points are a necessity in getting the initial word out. When it comes to film, that key marketing launches when a well-cut trailer hits the web. You could call the trailer the appetizer… and if you choose to do so, you […]

The Horrors of Drug Addiction in Movies

In an age of knee-jerk aversion to remakes of classic horror movies, no one (including myself) expected 2013’s EVIL DEAD to be what it was: Absolutely fantastic. Director Fede Alvarez, along with the film’s writers, cast, and producers, managed to create something that honored the source material (Sam Raimi’s seminal EVIL DEAD Trilogy) while bringing […]

Five Minor Injuries That Are Actually the Grossest Moments In Gory Movies

Gory movies are great. There’s nothing I love more than watching Jason Voorhees commit a triple decapitation or seeing a Xenomorph burst out of somebody’s chest cavity. For me, gore (when handled with the right tone) is a way to test the limits of special effects and have some giddy, messy fun with your sense […]

Bruce Campbell Announces New Book And Tour! HAIL TO THE CHIN!

Groovy. I still remember catching Bruce Campbell during his very first book tour for IF CHINS COULD KILL at a Long Island book store way out in Huntington. The Q & A session that preceded the actual signing was basically like sitting in on an hour long comedy set. Bruce was on fire, and answered […]

EVIL DEAD II: DEAD BY DAWN Celebrates 30 Years This Month! Groovy!

At seven years old, it wasn’t easy to appreciate the horrific spectacle known as EVIL DEAD II: DEAD BY DAWN. At that point it was a nightmare waiting to blossom the moment I slipped into unconsciousness. It was a jarring flick with o/ver the top gore and a maniacal comedic sense that flew right over […]

Five Unlikely Couples Found In These Unbelievable Horror Fan Fiction Recommendations!

Horror is a genre that allows filmmakers’ imaginations to run wild, concocting bombastic grotesqueries that viewers could never even dream of. But there’s one place where the audience can turn the tables and invent stories so wickedly gruesome that even horror directors have to bow down to their terrifying skill: romantic horror fan fiction. If […]
