Discovering P.T. and an Early Glimpse at Silent Hills

Oct 07, 2014 No Comments

I recently found myself the owner of a PS4 – a joyous occasion in that it replaced my dead Xbox 360 for the purposes of streaming movies, but a bit disappointing as the PS4 game selection is currently rather bare. So imagine my delight when, roaming through the downloads and demos, I found what appeared […]

Interview with SLEDGE Co-Director/Star Kristian Hanson

Sep 23, 2014 No Comments

I recently had the opportunity watch a fun, quirky film – Sledge, a horror comedy that takes the age-old “campers are targeted by a sociopath” trope and wrings out every bit of delicious, gory cheesiness it can.  I talked all about it in my review, which you should look at if you haven’t already, but […]

Sledge Movie Review

Sep 11, 2014 1 Comment

The horror comedy is a venerable genre in its own right. For as long as there have been horror films, there have been movies spoofing them – from Abbott and Costello facing the black-and-white movie monsters to Cabin in the Woods and Knights of Badassdom toying with our expectations of the genre, these movies are […]

Interview with Ditch Day Massacre stars Bill Oberst Jr., Katy Foley and Zach Silverman

Sep 09, 2014 No Comments

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with not one, but three awesome people involved in the film Ditch Day Massacre, an homage to ‘80s-era slasher films produced by Water Tree Media.  Ditch Day Massacre is a simple tale of revenge pitted against some clueless teenagers…or is it?  I can’t say much more without […]

Indie Horror Round-Up: Finding Diamonds in the Coal Bin Volume 1

Mar 26, 2014 No Comments

Have you ever been to a Halloween party – maybe in your childhood – and played the party game where you get blindfolded and stuff your hand into boxes to guess at what’s inside?  You do this knowing perfectly well that most of the things you come across will be disgusting: slimy spaghetti, peeled grapes, […]

The Walking Dead: A Unique Gaming Experience

Jan 28, 2014 No Comments

Although I live in a household of dedicated PC gamers, I’ve always had a special place in my heart for console games.  There’s something about their finite nature that’s a comforting break in pace from the usual open-ended social gaming experience, and they’re cozy – you curl up on the couch with a controller and […]

Interview with THE INVOKING Star D’Angelo Midili

Jan 14, 2014 No Comments

Back in July, I had the privilege of reviewing a little film called Sader Ridge, released by The October People.  Since then, it’s met with some pretty impressive success.  After getting picked up for distribution by Ruthless Pictures in September, the film was renamed to The Invoking and began to take the indie scene by […]

A Chorus of Wolves Book Review

Dec 26, 2013 No Comments

The description for Alex Kimmell’s anthology, A Chorus of Wolves, describes it as a book where “Safe havens become unsafe…the familiar turns outlandish and incomprehensible,” and that’s as good a description as any for what’s in store for you within these pages. The book includes six short stories and the opening chapters of a novel, […]

Sader Ridge Movie Review

Jul 31, 2013 No Comments

Director Jeremy Berg’s psychological horror-thriller Sader Ridge (The October People) is a refreshingly creepy film.  Where other movies might go for cheap scares and body horror, Sader Ridge is a quieter movie that relies on the strength of its performances and the implications of the unspoken to deliver a more thought-provoking fear. The film is about Sam […]

Horror, Masculinity, and the Women Behind the Camera

Feb 24, 2013 1 Comment

The fact that we even need the formality of a “Women in Horror Recognition Month” speaks volumes about the genre.  Horror movies are, after all, the domain of men both behind the camera and in the theater seat.  Or, at least, that’s the perception, even in a genre where women are beginning to outnumber men […]
