    The Franchise Files – A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 4: The Dream Master (1988)

    As the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise rumbles along, things start getting sillier and sillier. Which, in turn, means more profits for the film, and more fun for fans of campy horror. The Dream Master is the most intentionally silly film in the franchise thus far and makes no attempt to hide...

    THE GREASY STRANGLER (2016) Needs to be Seen to be Believed

    Reviewing a film like The Greasy Strangler feels like an impossible task, as everything about the film seems so surreal that it’s still hard for me to rationalize its existence. Fans of the truly absurd will delight in its disgusting madness. Those who are opposed to films that are purposely offensive...

    ‘The Exorcist’ Could Use A Good Remake – Here’s Why

    William Friedkin’s The Exorcist, released in 1973, is one of the scariest and most well-made horror movies of all time. Likewise, William Peter Blatty’s novel of the same name is nothing short of bloodcurdling. So why would anyone attempt to replicate it? Does it need a remake? I think that the answer is...

    THE VOID (2017) Boasts Some of the Best Effects in Recent Memory

    There is a scene in The Void about thirty minutes in when a hulking beast, made completely out of practical effects, is forcing its tentacled, gooey appendages into a dead man’s face through every possible orifice. The main cast looks on in horror, and rightfully so, as this thing is nothing...

    Review: Vaughn and Luna’s ETERNAL EMPIRE #1

    Fans of Sarah Vaughn and Jonathan Luna’s Alex + Ada series will be nothing short of delighted with Eternal Empire, their newest sci-fi tale. While the introductory issue may be a little off-putting for those newly acquainted with Luna’s highly-stylized artwork, longtime fans are in for more of the same unique...

    The Franchise Files – ANOES 3: Dream Warriors (1987)

    What. A. Comeback. I’ve already discussed my utter contempt for the second film in the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. While it’s not totally surprising that the film was a trainwreck given the rushed production and lack of participation by Wes Craven, what is surprising is that the franchise was able to come...

    Review – The Belko Experiment (2017)

    James Gunn, who wrote the screenplay for Blumhouse Tilt’s newest big screen outing, is clearly trying to make a statement. What that statement is, however, is not very clear. And I don’t mean that it’s ambiguous; I mean that there is clearly a sense of social satire, but The Belko...

    Review – Leila Del Luca and Kit Seaton’s AFAR

    There’s something so satisfying about reading a self-contained graphic novel. No, the story doesn’t exist for more than one volume, but when done correctly, they can be just as powerful. As they say, quality over quantity. If you need further proof, all you must do is read Afar, a beautifully illustrated...
