I’ll never forget the first time I saw John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN. I was five years old and stuffed to the brim with my trick-or-treat haul when my mom turned on AMC and told me I could stay up late and watch her favorite scary movie. A year later, we had the same routine, but this […]

Sometimes, there are characters in genre pictures that are so darned righteous and awesome, you can’t stop thinking about them or their amazing feats long after the movie is over. This column is dedicated to those cinematic bad-asses that keep us coming back for more. And although SUMMER SCHOOL is a comedy and not necessarily […]
I miss the SAW franchise. I really do. After the release and success of the first SAW way back in 2004, the franchise became something of a bonding experience for my cousin and I, as we both grew up the two horror-loving black sheep of the family. As often happens, there were a few years […]
