We all have a favorite Christmas movie to get us through the holidays. There are so many choices this season, all you need to do is turn on the television and you have something playing already. From the Peanuts gang to WHITE CHRISTMAS, each of us have that special movie that really brings out the merry in us all. Mine? Well, aside from DIE HARD, I always go back to BLACK CHRISTMAS. This...

It's the Booze Talkin': We support Robert Eggers taking on Nosferatu!

There is one subject that comes up almost on a daily basis for horror fans and horror writers themselves. Hell, having contributed for several years to a horror site, it is something I constantly hear/think about. After all, Hollywood has helped reboots and remakes become the norm when it comes to the current cinematic climate. Personally I’m not anti-remake necessarily, but I...

It's the Booze Talkin: Horror movie fans, don't be a jerk in the theater!

Every single October, for the last five years, I’ve had the opportunity to see HALLOWEEN on the big screen. Being in Los Angeles you have a plethora of occasions inviting you to see some cult classic in theatres and it is wonderful. Here is the issue, two out of the five times of watching my favorite horror flick there has been more than a little bad moviegoing behavior...

It's the Booze Talkin', Stop Saying Horror is Dead!

When BLAIR WITCH disappointed with its box office results, I happened upon an article or two with the author claiming that horror is dead. My response?? Are you freaking crazy?? This of course is nothing new. Oftentimes a genre flick will fail to live up to expectation and people cry that nobody wants to see scary movies anymore. Certainly we’ve had years where you wonder if...

It's the Booze Talkin', Has Hollywood forgotten about the horror greats?

When you think of your favorite horror movies, how often do guys like Carpenter, Hooper, Craven or Romero come up?  They are the names behind some of the most iconic horror films ever made. Recently - courtesy of the home video heroes Shout! Factory - I revisited John Carpenter’s THE THING and it was better than I remembered - and that's saying something...

It's the Booze Talkin': Don't remake Dario Argento's Suspiria!

Do you remember your first experiences with certain directors? I certainly do. And one that I’ll never forget is the magic of SUSPIRIA from legendary Dario Argento. It was a late night and I decided to rent the film as I had only heard stories about it. While the plot is more than a bit strange - ridiculous perhaps - the fact is the movie really is a masterpiece of atmosphere, set...

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...
