TEXAS FRIGHTMARE 2017 Report! BATES MOTEL! Dario Argento! Rob Zombie’s 31, FRIGHT NIGHT & More!

The 2017 iteration of Texas Frightmare Weekend has just wrapped, and the convention was, yet again, a smashing success! Blumhouse.com and Arrow Video were among the primary sponsors, and I found myself fortunate enough to moderate a handful of the panels, along with my Shock Waves co-hosts, so the following may come off as biased, […]

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 […]

Announcement Trailer: FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE GAME Arrives In Late May!

Ever since it was announced as part of a crowd funding campaign, horror fans have been clamoring for the end-all / be-all video game exploits of the one and only notorious movie maniac Jason Voorhees. After developing the game for the last few years, Gun Media has been bringing in key people from the FRIDAY […]

New Book Chronicles The Long Road To FREDDY VS JASON!

If there’s one thing I love more than anything, it’s the stories behind “unmade horror” projects. We’re run several articles about this in the past, such as the one about THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT 2, or the lost version of HELLRAISER: BLOODLINE intended to be an anthology, or the third feature in THE […]

First Trailer For Tom Holland’s Latest ROCK PAPER DEAD!

Tom Holland is synonymous with great horror. After all, he’s the fellow that directed FRIGHT NIGHT, CHILD’S PLAY, brought Norman Bates back in his screenplay for PSYCHO II, and helmed several Stephen King adaptations including THINNER and THE LANGOLIERS. He’s remained fairly active between writing, directing the anthology horror shorts collection TWISTED TALES, and overseeing […]

10 Obscure Slasher Films You Need to See

As both a horror fan and a lover of cheesy 80’s pop culture runoff, it’s like I’ve been genetically designed in a lab to love slasher films. Over my lifetime I’ve seen hundreds of the things, and my abiding love has buoyed me through some real stinkers. But sitting through CRAZY FAT ETHEL 2 is […]

The 12 Coolest Horror Collectibles At Toy Fair

This past week, just about every toy company in the continental United States converged on New York City’s Jacob Javits Convention Center for Toy Fair. While the long-running event offers buyers and press the opportunity to see upcoming products, the best part of the event is showing off the cool action figures, statues and other […]

Check Out the Twelve Creepiest (and Coolest) ReAction Horror Figures!

Towards the end of last year, Funko announced that the company ended its partnership with fellow collectible creators Super 7 in the creation of ReAction figures, leaving the latter to continue the line on its own. These smaller figures took stylistic inspiration from toys of the ’70s and ’80s, but covered a huge number of […]

Jason Voorhees’ Top 10 Kills From the FRIDAY THE 13TH Films

Over decades of FRIDAY THE 13TH films, Jason Voorhees has become the modern equivalent of a Dracula, Wolf Man or Mummy. While those legendary monsters will never be usurped as the masterful creations they are, we still need to recognize that Universal monsters aren’t the talk of contemporary times; those honors go to the likes […]

When Jason Met Arsenio: The Weirdest Talk-Show Interview Ever

It’s kind of amazing how little the culture refers to Arsenio Hall anymore. Hall, to remind you, was a well-known actor and comedian who appeared in such films as HARLEM NIGHTS, COMING TO AMERICA, and the funniest segment of AMAZON WOMEN ON THE MOON. He voiced Winston on THE REAL GHOSTBUSTERS, and had guest appearances […]

The Horrifying Death Of FRIDAY THE 13TH 4’s Rob Dier

The most horrifying death in all of the FRIDAY THE 13th franchise barely even takes place on screen…and no, it’s not kid Jason. Like any self-respecting horror fan who grew up with a VCR and cable in the 1980s, I’ve seen every FRIDAY movie at least a dozen times each. They’re horror comfort food, demanding […]

Slashback! Why CEMETERY OF TERROR is Mexico’s Best Slasher EVER

I know you’ve been missing my regular column on vintage slasher flicks… but it’s okay, you don’t have to reveal your dark and secret shame by admitting it. If you’re familiar with my previous installments, you know I tend to focus on more obscure oddities from the often-maligned slasher subgenre, as opposed to the classic […]
