The VelociPastor Movie Review

Aug 14, 2019 No Comments by

Lord have mercy. So, I just finished watching the award-winning, highly anticipated film, The VelociPastor. Writer/director Brendan Steere’s parodical story about how a “man of the claw” discovers that he’s got the ability to transform into a fierce velociraptor to battle evil…or ninjas. Sounds like a great plot, right? I know, I was super excited […]

D-Railed Movie Review

Aug 06, 2019 No Comments by

Trains make wonderful movie sets, particularly if the director wants to imbue his or her work with a sense of danger and claustrophobia. Sure, the clickety-clack of your locomotive may be relaxing, but you’re a captive audience in cloistered confines perched on steel rails often hurtling at breakneck speed over mountains, rivers and isolated terrain. […]

On the Fringe: Villains as Social Outcasts

Aug 01, 2019 No Comments by

In horror, it’s generally easy to tell who the victim is and who is the villain.  The victim can usually be found screaming and running from the killer, often in vain.  But what makes a villain villainous? With some characters there is an intrinsic sense of evil, like Randall Flagg from The Stand or the […]

Clinton Road Movie Review

Jul 18, 2019 No Comments by

Take the most notoriously haunted area in the U.S. and litter it with a bunch of the douchiest douchebags to ever exist, and whaddaya get? You get one of the dumbest “horror” movies ever made. Clinton Road is the title of this movie, and there’s not much, if anything, nice that can be said about […]

Dolls Movie Review

Jul 11, 2019 No Comments by

The horror genre sure loves a possessed doll, doesn’t it? I’ve never been a fan of dolls. In fact, I’ve stripped, amputated and decapitated my fair share of them in my lifetime. Oh, and let it be known that I’ll smack the shit out of a bitch if they think it’s cute to call me […]

Fact or Fiction: The Line Begins to Blur for These Horror Villains

Jul 05, 2019 No Comments by

Horror fans are a ravenous breed, and their numbers are swelling. 2017 was a record setting year for the genre, scoring a collective box office yield of well over $700 million. But what makes a horror villain iconic? For some it’s the actor, such as Tim Curry’s endlessly frightening portrayal of Pennywise the Clown in 1990’s classic, […]

Godzilla, King of The Monsters Movie Review

Jun 19, 2019 No Comments by

Being a professor of kaijuology, I know a thing or two about giant monsters. Yet, MONARCH never bothered to give me a call. Based on what I see of that organization in Godzilla, King of the Monsters, it’s probably just as well. They don’t seem to know Ghidorah from fedora. But that is neither here […]

All My Colors Book Review

Jun 12, 2019 No Comments by

At first blush, All My Colors seems to slot neatly into the subgenre of “writer horror” — a book that delves into the fear that lingers at the edges of creativity. In some respects, it shares much in common with Stephen King’s novella Secret Window, Secret Garden or Kathe Koja’s cosmic artist’s horror, Cipher. But […]

Terror in the Skies Documentary Review

Jun 05, 2019 No Comments by

Giant birds snatching children out of yards. Terrifying man-bird hybrids stalking the countryside in the middle of the night. Pterodactyls screaming through the clouds! Welcome to Illinois, folks! I have always been fascinated with the weird and strange stories of the Land of Lincoln. The state has quite a reputation as a hotspot for weird […]

Winterskin Movie Review

May 29, 2019 No Comments by

Does a movie centered on an old woman and a wounded young man stuck in a cabin in a desolate wintry landscape sound scary? What if one were to add in the premise of skinless monsters hellbent on flaying and eating the skin of their victims? Winterskin from director Charlie Steeds certainly has a lot […]
