It's the Booze Talkin': Genre Nostalgia proves rewarding in Stranger Things!

Nostalgia can be a tricky thing when it comes to entertainment. If you rely too heavily on it, audiences can turn on you very quickly. However, like it or not it has become a huge part of the movie going experience as of late. With countless remakes, sequels and television shows based on popular films from the jpast, it’s impossible to escape good old familiarity. However, for...

It's the Booze Talkin': We can't wait to look in the Deadlights of IT again!

UPDATE: It looks like we didn't have to wait too long to get a glimpse of Pennywise. Check out the demonic clown here . We all have horrors that screwed with our childhood. Perhaps it was a beast hiding underneath the bed. Maybe it was a monster in the closet. Either way, whatever demons that haunted us felt all too real and extremely terrifying. And one thing that freaked me...

It's the Booze Talkin' We want more summer themed horror thrills and chills!

Horror movies are a must when August arrives, and especially as October comes sneaking in. Yet watching a good scary movie can, and should, be a year round event for lovers of all things creepy. Of course, with summer in full swing, it is not a genre that usually has crowds filling the seats at the local theatre. This year, THE CONJURING 2 has done rather well, but that’s really...

It's the Booze Talkin', Bring back Cronenbergian body horror

If you are a horror fan, there are a number of filmmakers that you connect to, ones that have inspired many of those who grow up seeking out the genre. You have Craven, Carpenter, Argento, or what have you, but one of my personal favorites was the masterful David Cronenberg. The Canadian filmmaker first terrified me when I happened upon SCANNERS late one night. While he had...

It's the booze talkin', Why are there so few sympathetic movie monsters?

Recently I happened upon a film I hadn’t sat down with in years. It was David Lynch's black and white masterpiece THE ELEPHANT MAN. While it may not be a horror film, it certainly has a bit of horror thanks to the way people treated the deformed John Merrick (John Hurt). Watching this incredible feature, I began to wonder why horror films generally treat their monsters as,...

It's the booze talkin', We may have another solid year of horror in 2016!

Every so often I feel like we’ve been blessed as a horror fan. Yet it is increasingly more and more difficult when so much of what we see on the big screen is utter garbage. I’ve written many times about how independent scares and genre television are oftentimes superior to major studio fare. Yet every so often we have a decent year of chills. The last time we had a...

It's the booze Talkin', Give George Romero one more zombie feature!

If you are a fan of zombies then things have been pretty damn good for you over the past few years. While we’ve had very few big screen horror outbreaks turning mild mannered men and women into flesh eaters - aside from WORLD WAR Z - the small screen is raising the dead and viewers are loving it. It started with The Walking Dead, and now we have the spin-off, Fear the...

It's the Booze Talkin', Bring on Insidious: Chapter 4!

Let’s be honest, how many times do you see a promising horror trailer that ends with the unfortunate, “This feature is rated PG-13!”? While there are certainly solid ones, that rating has put a damper on a few potential views for many of us. Yet there is one PG-13 franchise that has proven to be entertaining, at least for this guy, and that is INSIDIOUS. What began as...

It's the Booze Talkin', They'd better not f*ck up The Shining sequel!

Who will ever forget the first time they witnessed THE SHINING. This masterwork from the legendary Stanley Kubrick is a terrifying journey that features an iconic performance from Jack Nicholson, and some of the creepiest imagery you will ever see - blood gushing out of that elevator still creeps me out. This 1980 classic is on many a cinephile’s list of favorites, but not everybody...

It's the Booze Talkin', Dimension needs to stop dumping on Amityville!

When I was young I was convinced that THE AMITYVILLE HORROR was absolutely real. It was only a matter of time before I started waking up at 3:15 am and the walls bled - okay, maybe that didn’t actually happen. There was a ton I loved about this flick as a kid, and frankly I still do. Margot Kidder and James Brolin were great, and Helen Shaver is perfectly kooky. And of course, you...

It's the Booze Talkin', Is there some good in the new Ghostbusters trailer?

Nowadays fans seem to decide well before the first image is even released whether a movie will be great, or simply a gargantuan waste of time. No other movie as of late however appears to be pummeled more than the upcoming GHOSTBUSTERS remake. For all the trips down nostalgia lane we make in the theatre, very few seem to really ignite genuine excitement. In the past few years...

It's the Booze Talkin, Stop Making Cheap Ass Hellraiser Sequels!

The first time I entered the world of HELLRAISER, created by Clive Barker, I was completely enamored. Well, maybe that isn’t the right word, but I found this nightmarish creation a thing of bloody beauty. The images of flesh being ripped asunder and the re-birth (or regeneration) of Frank was a stunningly horrific experience. Oh what sights the Cenobites were able to show us! And...
