How Does One Build The “Perfect” Horror Anthology? One Segment At A Time!

Horror anthologies. Everyone loves ’em. And what’s fun about them is debating, after the fact, about which segments were the strongest, scariest, most fun, etc. It’s also easily the most subjective sub-genre within horror.

If you’re a 90s kid like me (born in the late 80s/early 90s – sorry late 90s kids, you don’t count), then you know there were a ton of rad horror kids’ shows that came out that decade.  Saturday morning cartoons were not my thing. I lived for the horror show reruns that aired at […]

My Life In Commentaries

I don’t know how the hell I got the opportunity to be the moderator on several horror titles that sit proudly in my Blu-Ray collection; movies that I would’ve bought regardless of if I had anything to do with their releases. But like most things that come out of just being passionate, it kind of […]

Tobe on TV: The Television Horrors of Tobe Hooper

With the 1979 made-for-TV movie SALEM’S LOT finally making its long-overdue bow on Blu-ray, there’s never been a better time to look back at the long and prolific television career of director Tobe Hooper, a legendary but oft-maligned filmmaker who just happens to be one of my all-time favorites.

Revisiting FREDDY’S NIGHTMARES: A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET THE SERIES!
