    Rockstars, Vol. 1: Nativity in Blacklight Conjures up the Power of Rock

    I remember being a kid and laying on my bedroom floor listening to the greats on my headphones. Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, AC/DC – you name it. I’d sit and listen for hours on end reading the liner notes as well as biographies and legendary tales of rock. These...

    The Return of Twin Peaks is Uncompromisingly Strange

    David Lynch may be the most celebrated surrealist filmmaker in the history of film, and going into any of his works with a set of preconceived notions is a fool’s errand. He’s never been one to care what people think. Lynch is a director who, for the most part,...

    The Franchise Files – Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare (1991)

    Even Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare wasn’t intended to be the last in the Elm Street franchise, the title would have been astoundingly accurate. If the legacy of Freddy Krueger wasn’t dead before the sixth film, it sure was after. And though I hate to admit it, I’m glad the series took a...

    The X-Files Season 11: Where Do We Go From Here?

    The announcement that The X-Files Season 11 will return later this year or early 2018 has been met with a sigh of relief – for most. As for me, I’m not ready to give any sighs just yet; instead, I’m holding my breath. And I’m holding it really, really tight. Never...

    Hidden Gems: Beyond the Black Rainbow (2010)

    Few films have ever been able to leave me in awe the way that 2010’s Beyond the Black Rainbow. Feeling as if Satan had directed 2001 instead of Kubrick, the film is a visceral, otherworldly experience in a league of its own. Yet, it’s been shrouded in obscurity. I can’t really figure out...

    Nightmare – The VHS Board Game from Hell!

    For all of the genius creations of humanity, there have been an equal or greater number of complete messes. Sometimes, these messes are hilarious – reaching a level of entertainment only achievable by strange misstep and circumstance (see The Room, Troll 2). Enter NIGHTMARE, a VHS horror board game that...

    ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ is Nothing Short of Amazing

    The first role I had ever seen Chris Pratt in was the pilot episode of Parks and Recreation. A chubby, lazy, and dimwitted loser, the character of Andy Dwyer somehow managed to take all of these traits and turn them into something so loveable and endearing that it was almost obscene. Watching...

    The Franchise Files – A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child (1989)

    The original A Nightmare on Elm Street film opened up a world of promise for the horror genre as well as a world of confusion for later sequels in the franchise. Part of what made the first film so great – the bending of reality, the cartoonish, gory dream sequences –...
