NOS4A2 Season Two Episode 4: “The Lake House”

What’s the primary lesson we should all take away from this week’s episode, kiddies? It’s the lesson that Tabitha obviously did not bother to learn (which does make one wonder what they’re teaching FBI agents at the Academy these days), the number one rule of Zombieland, a movie she must never have bothered to watch,…

The CHOSEN Part Two: IN THE PADDED BELLY OF A CONCRETE WHALE Part 20

It would have required very little effort of the imagination for Gale to believe she and Deb were in Hell. The darkness surrounding them seemed alive, so thick as to be palpable; it rendered all the more horrific the sounds that wafted through the cramped trees, magnified by the dead air. Her eyes and lungs…

Movie Reviews: HELLRAISER: DEADER and HELLRAISER: HELLWORLD

I watched these two films back to back, as I continue working my way through all of them. That isn’t the reason I’m reviewing them together, though. I could get two articles instead of one out of this, but honestly talking about both at the same time is appropriate, since they both have the exact…

A Team-up with Scooby-Doo: It Shoulda Been Vampira

There’s a new animated feature coming out this fall on digital and DVD. It will feature the Scooby gang teaming up with Bill Nye the Science Guy and Elvira as they face-off against the Scarecrow—the Batman villain—who has animated a horde of rapacious pumpkins. It sounds fun. You can check out the trailer by clicking…

THE BRIDES Looking for a New Home

Remember that pilot episode that ABC ordered based on the wives of Dracula, entitled THE BRIDES? Welp, the suits in the offices took a hard pass on it. The Brides may not be undead in the water, though, as there are plans for the series to be shopped around in hopes that some other network…

HALLOWEEN Killed, CANDYMAN Moved

The latest installment in the reinvigorated HALLOWEEN franchise, which was due out this October, has been delayed an entire year due to the ‘Rona. I can’t say that I’m surprised. I think I was expecting it. And, as disappointing as the news is, I can’t even work up the energy to really feel it. I…

Revisiting the Classics: GHOSTBUSTERS

We were originally supposed to be enjoying GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE in theaters this summer, before the ‘Rona caused it to be postponed and the studio chose to put it off until next year. This left fans feeling awfully disappointed. I don’t know if that’s why the powers-that-be decided to release the original GHOSTBUSTERS to theaters—of the…

TV Review: NOS4A2 Season Two Episode Three: THE NIGHT ROAD

I knew they were going to have a hard time topping last week’s episode—and they didn’t. But that’s not to say it wasn’t another strong episode in its own right. Something that struck me watching this week’s installment was that Vic is, in her own way, something of a vampire, too. She’s so damaged. She…

Movie Review: HELLRAISER: HELLSEEKER

Continuing working my way through all the HELLRAISER movies, I am now up to number six. The previous entry, HELLRAISR: INFERNO, aka HELLRAISER 5, was pretty damn good. The people responsible for this one must have figured that, since that formula worked, they ought to simply reproduce it. This movie follows the same pattern as…

Movie Review: DUST DEVIL

This one popped up on somebody’s “Best Horror Movies You’ve Never Seen” list I read somewhere—I don’t even remember where—and it featured a Djinn. (Maybe. The entity in the film is never referred to as a Djinn.) I’ve mentioned before that I tend to enjoy movies featuring Djinn as they remain relatively few in number,…

Nhadiep, the Serial Killer Who Inspired a Legend

His reign of terror inspired two movies, 1989’s WINDPRINTS starring John Hurt and a pre-THE LORD OF THE RINGS Sean Bean, and the excellent 1992 Horror flick DUST DEVIL written and directed by Richard Stanley. But Nhadiep was real. A real, flesh and blood man, although his ability to avoid detection led people, as they…

Yes, the STRANGER THINGS Mall is Haunted

Last week I made a roadtrip to visit several of the filming locations for STRANGER THINGS, with one of the main places I wanted to stop being Gwinnett Place Mall, which was used as the location for Starcourt Mall in season three of the series. Cruise on over to our sister site of werewolves.com to…
