  • Nastiest Video Nasties – Banned Horror

    Video nasties were the general term for the movies that were banned in the UK in the early 1980’s, criticized for the violence and sexuality. Some of them weren’t as violent as the British censors made them out to be. And some of them were. Either way, it may have been the most insane overreaction to movies in the history of cinema. Labeling these films as “video nasties” and banning them only contributed to the success of the films, but [...]

Top Five George Romero Movies

The hit George Romero movie.

George Romero earned his reputation as a master of horror with his very first film, 1968’s Night of the Living Dead. He has contributed more to the genre than virtually any other horror director. He gave us the zombie film as we know it today. And yet he is so much more than just “the zombie guy” outside of his heralded zombie trilogy and the films of the same type he made after that, there is a wide and diverse [...]

Editorial – In Defense of the Remake

Dawn of the Dead Horror Remakes.

Remakes get a bad rap from horror fans and that’s not entirely without due cause. With Cabin Fever poised to be remade from the exact same script as the 2002 original, a lot of genre film fans are up in arms and left scratching their heads as to why a movie that’s barely 12 years old needs to be re-imagined. So, with that in mind, I wanted to take a moment to provide some food for thought and a bit of [...]

Editorial – Why Halloween III is an Unsung Classic

Halloween 3 Blu-ray

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 [...]
