    What’s The Big Deal About Horror, Anyway?

    After we die, what happens? The skeptics will say infinite nothingness. The believers posit that there’s an afterlife waiting for us; others believe we are reincarnated to do it all again. But the truth is, despite any evidence, only those who have been there know for sure. And they...

    They’re All Gonna Laugh at You: Revisiting Carrie (1976)

    Throughout the month of October, we’ve been exploring some of the best (and worst) Stephen King adaptations put to the big screen. Some are laughably bad, and some are just plain a waste of time. Others are excellent; iconic, even. But none of them so far have been as...

    The Franchise Files – Survival of the Dead (2009)

    In 2009, revolutionary filmmaker George A. Romero would make his final zombie film with Survival of the Dead, a Hatfield and McCoy-type story but with zombies. And in keeping with his roots, it would be a relatively small project – certainly nothing of the scope of epicness like World War Z. Romero, until...

    World Reader Vol. 1: Dead Stars is Amazing

    World Reader Vol. 1: Dead Stars is Amazing By Paul Aloisio Every so often I come across a comic that is so overwhelmingly great that it’s hard to put it into words. World Reader is this type of book. I don’t even think you should be reading this review. You should...

    Killer Trucks: Maximum Overdrive (1986)

    Stephen King, for such a prolific writer, has made some terrible choices throughout his career. This is never more apparent than in Maximum Overdrive, a 1986 film that he wrote and directed based off a short story called Trucks. It’s scored entirely by AC/DC. It’s not good. At all. By this time in...

    Review: Rough Riders Vol. 2

    Rough Riders-Riders of the Storm-Vol 2   By Paul Aloisio Teddy Roosevelt has always been an object of extreme fascination since his presidency, and rightfully so.

    Happy Death Day (2017) is a Little Too “Happy”

    Waking up for many people every day is a problem – but dying every night and then still having to wake up the next morning? Now that would be an issue for just about anyone. In Happy Death Day, this is exactly what happens. On her birthday, Tree (yes,...

    Creepshow (1982): An Immortal Horror Classic

    The comic book aesthetics of 1982’s Creepshow have often been imitated but rarely, if ever, replicated. There’s an unmistakable charm brought to the film which came from the highly potent combination of horror maestro George A. Romero and literary mastermind of creep Stephen King. But it goes further; they add in...
