Hear The Original, Shocking Unused Score For THE EXORCIST!

When I mention the titles of some of the most famous, iconic horror movies, you can’t help but think of their equally iconic scores. HALLOWEEN. PSYCHO. A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET.

Rob G’s Horror Pick Of The Week – THE GUARDIAN (1990)

Thank you, Scream Factory. You’ve done it yet again. Like most genre fans, I consider THE EXORCIST to not only be one of the best horror films ever made, but also one of the scariest; so by default, I love the work of filmmaker William Friedkin. But like with every directing auteur, sometimes titles from […]

Are We Finally Getting A “Director’s Cut” of THE EXORCIST III: LEGION?

EXORCIST III: LEGION was released in theaters on August 17th, 1990 and marked a prominent return to form for the franchise, mainly because of its direct connection to the original and with author/creator William Peter Blatty at the helm as director.

The Jinx of THE OMEN: Did Satan Curse This Horror Classic?

When there’s money to be made, no one in Hollywood can take a hint, even a Satanic one. According to many in Hollywood, The Dark Lord hurled countless plagues and curses at horror filmmakers back in the ’60s and ’70s, but he seems to have saved his best work for 1976’s THE OMEN. His Dark […]

Is THE EXORCIST Movie Cursed? 7 Reasons Some People Think the Film is Haunted

In 1973, William Friedkin set out to bring William Blatty’s novel, THE EXORCIST, to the big screen. The story of a young girl possessed by a demon, THE EXORCIST instilled terror in audiences.

Is THE EXORCIST 3 Scarier than THE EXORCIST?

There are certain things that horror fans never say out loud. For example: “I liked the remake of THE THING” will get you legally executed in multiple countries. But there are times in one’s life when you have to stand up and be counted, when you have to admit that you are in the vocal […]

EVIL DEAD II As Retold By Claymation Cats

EVIL DEAD II is my favorite movie of all time. So pretty much anything with the words “evil” and “dead” and “2” in it and I’m sold. So naturally my buddy Josh Obershaw forwarded over this video that’s been floating around the interwebs since the summer of 2012, but which I’m only now discovering. EVIL […]
