Did Poltergeist's spooky Super Bowl poster predict O'Rourke's tragic death?

Get. This. Sh*t.  A few days ago I shared with you guys a video claiming Steven Spielberg was the true director of POLTERGEIST .

Clowns. What the hell is it about clowns that are so damn scary? Is it the pale makeup? The rosy cheeks? The interminable grin? The big red nose? The humongous shoes? Or really, is it the notion of corrupted innocence...the eroded trust of a childhood entertainer gone horribly awry? Well, where ever the deep seeded fear derives from, horror movies have capitalized on such a phobia by turning...

What is it about a horror score that, when done well, makes the movie so damn scary?

It's the Booze Talkin', Sometimes it's okay to remake a horror movie!

One of the must despised words in horror today is “remake.” It carries so much disdain that filmmakers and studios are constantly trying to call it anything else. It’s a reboot. It’s a reimagining.
