Neon Night Terrors

Hello, I love 80's horror. Love it. It is my favorite era of my favorite genre of movie. I love the excess of 80's horror. It's big an it's gory and it splatters and explodes across the screen. It's an enormous, backwoods madman in a hockey mask swinging a machete. It's a demon invading nightmares … Continue reading Neon Night Terrors

Scary Fear

Hello Again, I think about horror a lot. I think about horror movies, horror short fiction, horror novels, about the things that terrify us day-to-day. Horror is a vital thing, an important thing and a thing worth studying. I've had a project in the back of my mind, something I've been thinking about working but … Continue reading Scary Fear

The Science-fication of Horror

In the days of olde, let's say the 1940's and back, horror movie monsters were the stuff of legends and myth. They were the vampires and werewolves of Eastern Europe. They were the mummies of Ancient Egypt. They were the primitive beasts from the Pleistocene Era. They were the ghosts and ghouls from Victorian castles. … Continue reading The Science-fication of Horror

The Ten (Episode One): Introductions

It is only now, in this final hour, that I will reveal the great undertaking that myself and Trevor C. have shouldered. It took six months of constant and ceaseless effort.

Halloween Monday Movie Marathon (And Beer)

Two things have converged to create what will be my finest blog moment: 1.I have Monday off from work. 2. I just got back from Rock and Shock.' After the convention yesterday, I was struck hard by the desire to really get some Halloween celebrating in. I knew that I had to do something and … Continue reading Halloween Monday Movie Marathon (And Beer)

Halloween Horror Movies

We all have our ways of celebrating Halloween. If you're still in elementary school, you put on a costume and beg strangers for candy. If you're in college, you use Halloween as an excuse to get blitzed. If you're my age, you sit at home and quietly contemplate opening an Ameritrade account before deciding that … Continue reading Halloween Horror Movies

31 Days of Spoooktacular: Happy Halloween

I'm drinking a beer called Vampire Slayer (brewed by Clown Shoes). This isn't a review, I'm just letting you know that I have a dark, flavor rich beer and you should get some yourself. No, really I'm just here to say, Happy Halloween. We've spent a lot of time together, you and I and it's … Continue reading 31 Days of Spoooktacular: Happy Halloween

31 Days of Spoooktacular: The Remade

Between 2007 and 2010, all three of the major slasher icons were featured in reboots of the old movies. Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers stalked the silver screen again in "fresh" "re-imaginings" of the old movies. Halloween came first, followed shortly by Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. The idea that … Continue reading 31 Days of Spoooktacular: The Remade

31 Days of Spoooktacular: Rock and Shock (The Event)

I keep trying to condense all of this into one picture or thought that encompasses the entire event, but it's just not possible. There are the celebrities. The few we actually talked to were absurdly nice and patient with our mumbling and limp handshakes. All around me, I see adulation for a genre that gets … Continue reading 31 Days of Spoooktacular: Rock and Shock (The Event)
