• Horror Films You Probably Didn’t Know are Based on Books

    It is commonplace for films, television series, and other art forms to take old ideas and recycle the concept into something new. This has been demonstrated ad nauseam by the staggering number of horror film remakes that were greenlit by studios in the early to mid 2000s. The reboot trend seems to be dying out but has been replaced by the new phenomenon of adapting feature films for the small screen. Before remakes were en vogue, it was very commonplace [...]

  • Horror Films that Should have Had Sequels

    Like most things in life, horror sequels are a mixed bag; sometimes they are awful, sometimes they are great, and sometimes they are just OK. Sequels are often the greedy attempt of film studios to replicate the success (profits) of a well-received film. Oftentimes, these follow up efforts backfire and the picture ends up being a box office failure because the film didn’t warrant a sequel. But in some cases, the second installment in a series blows the audience away [...]

  • Scary Masks- Run & Hide

    A scary mask can make a “little creepy”, absolutely terrifying. Hiding someone’s face creates extra tension and fear. Below are some of the greats of horror movies-   MICHAEL MYERS (Halloween)- That deadpan William Shatner stare is one stare you definitely do not want to bump into. Standing in doorways, hallways and dark roads near you on Halloween, you can run but can’t hide from the Myers. THE STRANGERS- There is nothing scarier than the unknown in which The Strangers prove [...]

  • Five Horror Films You Might Not Have Seen But Should

    With studio horror films being kind of hit and miss, horror fans are often left to wade through a series of VOD and direct-to-DVD titles in an attempt to discover quality horror films. There are plenty of diamonds in the rough to be found but the problem is knowing where to start. Sifting through the horror section on Netflix or at your video store (if you still have one) can be a bit like fishing: One can easily invest hours [...]

  • Horror Comedies- For Fans Of A Scarily Good Time

    Wicked fun horror comedies- If you’re into creepy crawlies- Eight Legged Freaks A ridiculous but enjoyably campy ‘creature horror comedy about gigantic spiders. While the mutant spider invasion is not bad in this movie, just about everything else is absolutely awful, including the story, the dialogue, and especially the acting. This tongue-in-cheek homage to 50’s monster movies will make you giggle in between some possible squeals. If you’re into blood & gore- Tucker & Dale Vs Evil Tucker (Alan Tudyk) & [...]

    The freaky old grandma’s and grandpa’s of horror- OTIS B DRIFTWOOD (THE DEVILS REJECTS)- The most sadistic member of the Firefly family, Otis is the angry old man who is ridiculously stubborn but very loyal. Abusing, skinning and making sculptures out of his victims, he considers himself somewhat an artist. Just don’t have a paint off with him, it could end in a real art attack. GRANDPA SAWYER (THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE)- He may not actually do much but the [...]

Re-Cut- Documentary Disaster

The poster for the movie Re-cut directed by Fritz Manger.

Directed by Fritz Manger, Re-cut is a found-footage, faux-documentary horror movie. Re-cut opens with the definition of a snuff film. “A pornographic film that shows an actual murder of one of the performers, at the end of a sadistic event.” After another statement the screens finally reads “In the fall of 2009, the following video was intercepted by the Internet Crimes Division of the FBI.” I’m personally a sucker for a faux-doc disclaimer even when I know they aren’t true.
