A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 Review
Ah, to be the new kid in school, as if that wasn’t a nightmare already. Today I review part two of my favorite series of horror, A Nightmare on Elm Street. I chose part two to start because, well, it widely goes overlooked.
I am the biggest fan of the first, four, five, and six are a different beast, and seven is an island all its own. I use to own the original three on a VHS tape and [...]

The Orphan Killer Review
It’s no secret that the slasher sub-genre is my favorite of all when it comes to horror cinema. When done correctly, these films can be both shocking and entertaining. These days, however, it is rare to watch a slasher film that isn’t merely an attempt of reproducing the 80’s golden era with the term ‘throwback’ in mind. Luckily for us diehard fans, there are still a few filmmakers out there who produce some real quality slasher material. One of those [...]

With a fan base growing for Found, the question was bound to come up — “Will Headless ever be a feature?” At first, the answer was no… until writers Nathan Erdel and Todd Rigney created a world worth exploring.
