Brutal Massacre: A Comedy Review
Growing up, I hated horror comedies. I couldn’t understand why anyone would try to mix humor and dread together into this strange amalgamation of emotions. As the years progressed, I ended up being introduced to a whole slew of films from this sub-genre that I actually quite enjoyed and my hatred slowly deteriorated. If done right, comedic horror films can be some of the best ones around. Read on as I discuss whether or not I still feel that way [...]
Having friends who love horror films just as much as you is great. You can discuss the stuff you love and hate with someone likeminded and even if your opinions differ, it’s usually a pretty good time. I will say that I don’t blatantly ignore my friends’ recommendations, but I do infact find it difficult to squeeze them in amongst the hundreds (yes, hundreds) of other flicks I have on my to-watch list.

That, my friends, is how I feel about Jeff Barnaby’s Blood Quantum.
It starts with animals, but soon [...]

I didn’t really know what to throw on tonight, as I haven’t been much in the mood for films lately. Still, I managed to find something in the endless amounts of stacks I have laying around. Read on as I share with you my thoughts on Chris Bavota and Lee Paula Springer’s Dead Dicks.
Cursed Films Review
A huge part of growing up as a horror fan is word of mouth. Someone you know told you about a film that they randomly came across and insisted you also just have to see it. Sometimes, along with information about the particular film itself, came some interesting tidbits about something that may have happened on set, something that happened to a cast or crew member, etc. On occasion, these bits of trivia were just silly occurrences, but other times, [...]
