As an assault of “video nasty” bits hurls at the screen amongst the opening credits I anticipated a fun ride through v/h/s soaked nostalgic sleaze and I was not wrong. Much like how Berberian Sound Studio paid homage to the Italian Giallo of the seventies without becoming a distraction, this
The first time I saw Promising Young Woman, I spent the last maybe 15 minutes outright sobbing—not from sadness or grief, but because I’ve never felt such catharsis from a film. Perhaps in the future, I will write a more in-depth piece on the ending specifically, but for now, I
Listen in as I review A Ghost Waits from director Adam Stoall and starring Macleod Andrews and Natalie Walker. The supernatural romantic comedy had its North American Premiere at Screamfest. Made on an indie (small as shit) budget, but pushed to the max of what could be done with that

If you’re a full grown adult somewhere between your late twenties and early thirties, chances are seeing that iconic Goosebumps font anywhere conjures up fond and frightening memories of the iconic book franchise.

CRIMSON PEAK’s plot fails to match up to Guillermo del Toro’s stunning visuals in this gothic romance.
The last panel of the day was the highly anticipated third installment in the Insidious series: Insidious Chapter 3. While I was severly disappointed with the second installment, the first one was so good that I’m still interested in checking this one out. The panel was graced by the presence
We wrapped up our day at WonderCon 2015 by getting some previews of what’s to come from Blumhouse Productions. They gave us a sneak peak at three of their upcoming horror movies, including two small budget films: Unfriended and The Shallows. We were treated to panels feature key contributors from
From the man who brought us Clerks, Chasing Amy, Jersey Girl, and a bazillion hours of podcasting comes the most delightfully insane film.
Just taking a guess here, but you probably don’t want to go to Hell. Probably don’t want to rule it, either. And neither does Lucifer, the original fallen angel himself, which sets in motion the events of The Sandman: Vol IV – Season of Mists. Pop culture academics (and Wanna Cook? authors) K. Dale
Close your eyes. Lull yourself to sleep. It’s time for another trip to the Dreaming, as Paul, AJ, and special guest/third Gobbler Eric Sipple continue their Four-Color Flashback exploration of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman. In Vol. II, The Doll’s House, we discover humans might be playthings of the gods; that hearts are very important; that
