CRIMSON PEAK’s plot fails to match up to Guillermo del Toro’s stunning visuals in this gothic romance.
When Halloween comes around, there are movies/TV shows to watch to give you a fright; but ther are also comics that play on your fears of things that go bump in the night! Of course, anything from Dark Horse Comics’ ‘Creepy’. Celebrating its 50th Anniversary, this comic is great for
Every Halloween, there is a special day for comic book readers: Halloween Comicfest! This year’s event will be October 25. Here is the basic concept of Halloween Comicfest 2014: Each year, Halloween ComicFest is celebrated at your local comic shop the Saturday before Halloween. On this day, you can walk into
Over the years, the horror genre has received a reputation of being filled with plot-less, talent-less and pointless violence and gore. In regards to the artists who have contributed to this genre since it’s inception, we look at a few films that have shaped present-day horror. 1. The Cabinet of Dr.
Wow, what an episode! The best of the season so far? I’d say so. We open on All-Hallows Eve, 1833 at Madame LaLaurie’s home. A young man at the party takes interest in LaLaurie’s daughter Boquita, so LaLaurie invites him to her “chamber of horrors.” In a spin on
Happy (belated) Halloween! What better way to celebrate than to watch another episode of American Horror Story? This week ratchets things up considerably, expanding the world of the story and also the rivalry between the two witch clans. Let’s get started. In 1961, a young black boy is lynched by
Is there anything scarier then five bloggers talking about scary movies and nugget covered candy apples? Of course there isn’t. Welcome to The BastardCast Halloween Outhouse of Horrors episode! On the show we’ve got Brad McHargue from Dread Central, Chris Cummins from Topless Robot/Geekadelphia/HibernationSickness.com, Matthew Jackson from Blastr, and
I’ll be the first to admit that when a new horror game comes around, I’m the first to gawk at the new trailer and immediate criticize it for not being scary. Normally, I don’t enjoy actually terrifying video games, despite my immense respect for the better examples of them. Most
THE END IS NIGH! Of Gobbledyween 2013, that is. And possibly of the world, if Big Haagen has its way in The Stuff. That’s right, the final film of this year’s horror movie marathon is none other than 1985’s The Stuff, about a sentient yogurt-like substance that wants to turn you into
The penultimate week of Gobbledyween has arrived, and while that is indeed cause for national (nay, international) mourning, don’t worry: to make the most of it, Paul and AJ have two movies for you this week. Well, okay, they’re really kind of the same movie, but don’t look a gift
Throughout the years, many directors have blessed us horror movie fans with brilliant films. In the spirit of Halloween, this week I will be showcasing a few of the most iconic directors who have and continue to leave their mark in horror cinema history. Continuing on with my look at
It’s almost Halloween time, folks, and in the spirit of the season, we at Screen Invasion are taking a look back at what movie messed us up the worst during our precocious years. This writer has seen many horror flicks despite her distaste for them. Weird, right? The most traumatizing
Continuing Screen Invasion’s Halloween spirit, we take a look at the Horror Icon, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET Director Wes Craven.
Gobbledyween week three is here, and I hope you’ve got an empty stomach, because we’re about to load you up on barbecue, sausages, and yes, head cheese. Paul and AJ take a look back at Tobe Hooper’s 1974 endurance test The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. As usual, they have a
Some consider pumpkin carving a child’s amusement, to others a seasonal craft project. Not I. To me it is a ritual, an annual meditation of self-expression and true craftsmanship. My hope is that Ron Swanson would be proud. The flickering warm glow from within the ephemeral canvas is as peaceful
Paul has seemingly bounced back from his very serious illness (which was for real and not an imaginary story), so that means you, you lucky son of a gun, get two episodes of Gobbledygeek in such close proximity. We’ll discuss Paul’s brush with near-death, but there’s also some Gobbledyween fun to
