OMG… We’re in a Horror Movie!!! Review

Feb 04, 2016 No Comments by

We’re all familiar with horror movie clichés. Let’s face it, fright films may be the most parodied of all genres. The Wayans brothers and their affiliates turned the Scream franchise into comedy gold with their Scary Movie collection. Cabin in the Woods ranks as both parody and classic. Slither is sensationally funny and cynical. And […]

The Angel of Highgate Book Review

Feb 02, 2016 No Comments by

One would be hard pressed to find a name more English than Vaughn Entwistle. I’ve certainly never heard anything that oozes tea and crumpets quite like it. On top of it all, Mr. Entwistle is the author of an oh-so English novel—The Angel of Highgate. Set in the autumn of 1859, The Angel of Highgate […]

The Lurking Movie Review

Jan 28, 2016 No Comments by

Director Rob Michels’ The Lurking is the latest bit of underground ichor from the Wisconsin-based production company Screaming Like Banshees. This outfit has bestowed consumers of crazy, confrontational, micro-budgeted movies with a sick cinematic smorgasbord over the past couple years (see their contributions to 2014’s deranged Wisconsin-lensed anthology Hole in the Wall). And while The […]

The Secrets of Drearcliff Grange School

Jan 26, 2016 No Comments by

Amy Thomsett found herself sleeping one too many times on the ceiling, so it’s off to boarding school for this young girl with the ability to float. So begins Kim Newman’s The Secrets of Drearcliff Grange School. As a title, it’s a mouthful. As a novel, it’s a marvel. Newman, the British author who is […]

Children of the Night Movie Review

Jan 20, 2016 No Comments by

A lot of this film looks and feels like something Guillermo Del Toro would have made some twenty years ago. There’s an ambitious vision behind the camera with Children of the Night and while it doesn’t always translate into an excellent film, there’s enough to like about this project to recommend a viewing. Journalist Alicia […]

Lovecraft Out Loud: A Review of The Hound & The Music of Erich Zann on Cadabra Records

Jan 12, 2016 No Comments by

If you humanoids are inclined to hear classic tales of terror in spoken form, you can spend hours wandering the digital catacombs of YouTube and other such websites and find the works of Poe, Lovecraft, King and more. The quality of these verbal frights varies from excellent to something more hideous than the monsters described […]

Jan 05, 2016 No Comments by

We’re currently experiencing the golden age of television. Beginning around 15 years ago with stellar original programming from HBO, a television landscape populated with outstanding, high-concept series soon took shape as other premium networks such as Showtime followed HBO’s lead, then basic cable channels like AMC and FX got in on the action, and now […]

Throughout the month of October, the general area of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is teeming with its share of some excellent haunted attractions.

The Laughing Mask Movie Review

Dec 17, 2015 No Comments by

I’m at a loss for words. There are only so many synonyms for “bad.” The Laughing Mask, directed by Michael Aguiar and a cast that should seek refuge in the witness protection program, is such a mess of a movie that it hardly qualifies as cinematic. It’s so disjointed and disastrous as to be, uh, […]

The Last House Movie Review

Dec 15, 2015 No Comments by

Horror is full of final houses. Just this year alone, The Last House and The Last House on Cemetery Lane were released. Of course, the greatest domestic dwelling is Wes Craven’s The Last House on the Left. All other last houses pale in comparison. Such is the case with Sean Cain’s The Last House. Despite […]
