  • Editorial – Why Halloween III is an Unsung Classic

    With the big day just around the corner, it’s time to get in gear with some Halloween themed content. But rather than throw together a retrospective on the original Halloween, we wanted to do something a little different and give a bit of play to a film that has never really been given its due. Halloween III: Season of the Witch is easily the most under-appreciated title in the entire Halloween franchise. It dared to do something different and go in an unexpected direction which unfortunately caused people to [...]

The Kiss Of The Vampire- Old School, Atmospheric Hammer Horror

The Kiss of a Vampire directed by Don Sharp.

Hammer achieved a large amount of success with Horror of Dracula pretty much out of the gate. This led to a franchise with at least seven sequels. Still, despite the massive success of their flagship Dracula franchise, British Hammer Studios thought there was more to explore with the idea of the vampire. They still wanted to examine vampires in as many ways as possible. Thus they made Kiss of the Vampire, unrelated to their star franchise in any way, shape or [...]

Top Ten Horror Movie Threequels

The hit franchise Child's Play.

The third part in any horror series is the hardest to get right and in some ways the most important. If it’s not the end of a trilogy, it’s the beginning of a franchise. It can bring things full circle or it can push things in an entirely new direction. For the most part, these movies are a wide mix of both. 10. PUPPET MASTER III: TOULON’S REVENGE-  The long-running Puppet Master franchise was always cheesy, but it got really cheesy [...]

Cursed – Bland Moon Rising

The poster for the Wes Craven movie, Cursed starring Christina Ricci.

To its credit, Cursed was plagued by production problems that went all the way up to the top. The movie we’re left with cuts right to the chase and is a fairly by the numbers, standard werewolf movie. All it really has going for it is that it’s a standard werewolf movie at a time when even standard werewolf movies just weren’t being made. That’s not much of a saving grace though. What we’re left with is a pretty forgettable [...]
