The Horror Remakes We Genuinely Love

Remakes have been and always will be a tricky thing. Some enjoy them, and some don’t. Some of them work, and some don’t. Some are made for the right reasons, and some are made for a buck. That’s the nature of the game. We’ve been fortunate enough to see a few remakes come along that […]

Superhero Reboots and Sisyphus: Keep Pushing that Boulder!

A brief primer: Sisyphus was a figure in Greek mythology who was, for his craftiness, punished by the gods by being forced to push an enormous boulder up a hill. When it reached the top, it would roll to the bottom, and he’d have to start again. Sisyphus is a symbol for futile work. This […]

After a couple of forgettable sequels and a sorta-reboot — though in name only — from Sam Raimi’s Ghosthouse Pictures in 2005 (which spawned sequels of its own), it appears the […]
