Face-Off: King Kong 1976 vs. King Kong 2005

This Friday, one of cinema's greatest, most iconic creatures will be making his (hopefully) triumphant return to the big screen in KONG: SKULL ISLAND, so this week's Face-Off had to be all about Kong. For me, the 1933 version of KING KONG, which was directed by Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack, is an untouchable classic, so rather than stack the deck against another film I decided to...

Vera Farmiga joins Godzilla: King of Monsters

I'm thinking the new GODZILLA is quickly becoming one of the top must-see flicks in recent years. I'm not specifically singling out the cast. After all the best news I, personally, have heard yet on the GODZILLA: KING OF MONSTERS front is that TRICK R TREAT and KRAMPUS director Michael Dougherty is helming the flick this time around. That was enough for me! To make matter...

Face-Off: Ghostbusters vs. The Frighteners

The controversy surrounding the film has made it pretty hard to miss the fact that this weekend marks the release of Paul Feig's reboot of GHOSTBUSTERS. With such a huge event ahead of us, the 1984 GHOSTBUSTERS had to be part of this week's theme, and I'm putting that Ivan Reitman-directed supernatural horror/comedy up against another ghost-filled horror/comedy, Peter Jackson's 1996 film THE...

The Frighteners- Horror Movie Review- (Day 15 of 31)- October Massacre

PLOT: Thanks to a freak accident, Frank Bannister is able to “see dead people”. So of course, he uses this gift to run a paranormal investigator service that actually scams people because he actually is in cahoots with the ghosts! However, things get hairy when people begin dying of strange, yet seemingly natural causes within his town. Certain that Death himself has descended upon...

Top 10 Murderous Monkey Movies!

As you must know by now, Matt Reeves' DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES launches its full-out assault on the masses today. And you know what? Little Caesar looks more vengeful than a wronged Game of Thrones character, doesn't he? Just a seething caldron of primal rage, that little f*cker is! But hey, no biggie, it's hardly the first time we've seen a psychotic simian with a lust for human blood...

Face-Off: King Kong Vs. Rise of the Planet of the Apes

We had a dead heat with people's opinions on our last Face-Off . Though Mr. Boogie won the actual bout, he and Samara split the vote right down the center in terms of our fearless readers. This makes sense because like I said. both are very strong horror movie staples. Now, it's time to start monkeying around with today's Face-Off which takes its cue from this Friday's release of...

Top 10 Maniacal Mothers!

Maniacal mothers...the stuff of cinematic legend! Think about it, some of the most memorable characters to ever grace the screen happen to be woefully wicked matriarchs, be they in the horror genre or not. Why do you think that is? Perhaps it's the subversion of expectation. We normally associate motherhood with nurturing, caring, overprotection, life-giving and the like...so when those...

Kill of the Day: Dead Alive (1992)

Before THE LORD OF THE RINGS the one and only Peter Jackson actually found a home in our beloved genre with the classic zombie flick DEAD ALIVE (or BRAINDEAD if you want). I'm sure many of you out there are familiar with this one and I'm willing to bet many of you out there even like this one more than that RINGS trilogy. Hell, I don't blame you! DEAD ALIVE is awesome! For today's Kill...

Face-Off: Return of the Living Dead Vs. Dead Alive

With zombies currently at the forefront these days, it seems our last Face-Off was a no-brainer in terms of who the winner was. Everyone unanimously agreed that Ash would have no trouble besting Tallahassee in the human monster killing department. I said it before and I will say it again: "Hail to the King, baby!" We're staying firmly planted in the zombie genre for today's battle...
