Original Vs. Remake: The Blob

I got some awesome feedback on our last Original Vs. Remake featuring House of Wax. Some made clear how the large age gap between the two caused for a somewhat poor comparison. However, most set that notion aside and agreed that the remake was the one they'd rather watch. Today, it seems we are comparing another May/December romance of flicks in all their gooey glory! Yes, it's time...

Kill of the Day: Cellar Dweller (1988)

While searching for today's Kill of the Day I stumbled upon something great folks. I'm talking one of those one-in-a-hundred kills that just oozes awesomeness.

Kill of the Day: Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers (1988)

When you talk about the hey-day of horror movies what decade comes to mind? Personally, and I'm sure a lot of you would agree, I immediately think of the 80s. Oh the horror flicks of the 80s. I can watch most of those gems over and over again. One franchise that seems to get a bit overlooked within all the others is the SLEEPAWAY CAMP franchise. Sure that twist ending is a bit of a...

Kill of the Day: A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988)

If you were to look back at the major horror franchises which one would you say has the best death scenes? It's definitely debatable but I'd bet A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET would be in that discussion. While most of the kills in this epic franchise are creative and fun, today's Kill of the Day is a bit more on the classic side. Right when he thinks he might have beaten Freddy Krueger,...

Here's this giant monster and it doesn't have any weapons... the thing just engulfs you! Scary right? Now imagine being stuck in a phone booth surrounded by this pink monstrosity. Say hello to our Kill...
