    The Franchise Files – Dawn of the Dead (1978)

    Sometime during the year of 1974, George Romero paid a visit to the Monroeville Mall in Pennsylvania, invited by a friend whose company took part in managing it. The building was full of shoppers. They seemed blissfully ignorant of anything that was going on in the world outside of...

    H.P. Lovecraft’s Direct Influence on ‘The Mist’

    Anyone who has read both King and Lovecraft will be able to pick out Lovecraft’s presence in The Mist eventually. The creatures, Lovecraftian in description are, well…described as being Lovecraftian. If by this point in the novella you didn’t pick up on the classic author’s influence, you most certainly did with that word...

    The Horror of Jaws: Stay out of the Water!

    Water is essential to human life. It’s in our bones; 31% of our skeletal system is composed of it. The sound of it alone fills many with a sense of tranquility. It is clean. It is pure. And thanks to Peter Benchley’s 1974 novel Jaws, it has since become a source of absolute terror for many....

    Netflix’s Castlevania Series is Seriously Bloody!

    I love Castlevania. Who doesn’t? As a fan of both horror and video games, the series provided a near-perfect marriage of the two. Combined with the nostalgia aspect of the whole franchise, there is almost nothing to dislike about it. So when I found out about a Netflix original...

    Review – Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)

    Spidey is back in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and it’s a fresh, welcome take on a long-running superhero. While many have complained that we don’t “need” another Spider-Man movie – we actually don’t, if they’re going to tell the same exact story – Marvel makes the right choice and gives us a film...

    Give Spidey a Chance – Andrew Garfield Was Great!

    Nostalgia sure is a tricky thing. Do you remember when Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man came out in 2002? Probably not very well. I was eleven, and there’s a good chance you were around the same age as well. This was the first time we were seeing Spidey on the big screen, and...

    The Franchise Files – Night of the Living Dead (1968)

    In a world where The Walking Dead continues to consume pop culture, it’s hard to imagine a time where zombies did not exist in the way we know them today. They’re everywhere. They’re sometimes cute, like in Plants versus Zombies. Other times, they’re hilarious, like in Fido. But in 1968, they existed in a form...

    The Hidden Genius Behind ‘The Devil’s Rejects’

    In Rob Zombie’s 2005 masterwork of a grindhouse road movie, the typical American Outlaw character is pushed to a sadistic extreme. The Outlaw has been a staple of American cinema for decades, but Zombie’s version of it is much grittier and demented. The”protagonists” of The Devil’s Rejects lack any redeeming virtues....
