Worst Dinner Parties Ever!

If you’ve seen the suspenseful thriller THE INVITATION, you know it involves an incredibly awful dinner party among friends. Dinner parties are horrifying alone, because they force one to socialize, pretend to be excited about your friends’ mundane life stories, and welcome whatever surprise meal the host is serving. So, it makes sense why the […]

Is The “TV Remake” Bubble Finally About To Break?

Remakes are nothing new.  In fact, they’ve been around since the very beginning of cinema.

Crafting The Perfect TV Theme

A lot of times, when it comes to movies, a great musical score can make a world of difference. There are famous stories about how PSYCHO wasn’t scary until Bernard Herrmann laid in his catchy all string “black and white” score, in particular the screeching violins for the shower scene. John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN initially didn’t […]

Horror At The Oscars! PART THREE!

Last night, MAD MAX: FURY ROAD took home 6 Academy Awards (!) for Best Costume Design, Production Design, Makeup & Hairstyling, Film Editing, and both Sound Mixing and Editing.

DOUBLE TAKE – MANHUNTER (1986) / RED DRAGON (2002)

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 bill, the goal is to find two movies with a similar theme that would complement each other. And there’s […]
