[DRESSED TO KILL] CREEPY CO. GARBAGE PAIL KIDS COLLECTION SERIES 2


December 17, 2017    Jeremy Lowe

    True horror fans understand that horror is not just a genre of film or literature. It’s more than just entertainment. Horror is a subculture unto itself. It’s the way you think, who you interact with, and the way you dress. Many focus on making a statement by wearing…

      Anybody out there seen this trailer? It came out late in the week. I have studied Clint’s movies for twenty years, and I’m still trying to figure out what’s going on here. To recap: the three lead characters in THE 15:17 TO PARIS are played by the guys…

In STAR WARS, A Sense Of Humor Can Be More Powerful Than The Force


December 16, 2017    Mike Vanderbilt

THE LAST JEDI essentially opens up with a “yo mama” dis, as hotshot pilot Poe Dameron sets the tone for the rest of the film by taunting the villainous General Hux from the cockpit of his X-Wing. It’s a brilliantly funny sequence, and THE LAST JEDI carries a real wit throughout, with our  heroes…

December 16, 2017    Matt Wedge

    I love genre cinema. I will always have a soft spot for horror, action, sci-fi, and all the subgenres that exist inside those larger categories. What I have never felt any real connection to are those films that exist in the realm of pure sleaze. You know the…
