Top 10 Creepy Movie Clowns!

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?

Top 10 Gentle Horror Theme Songs!

What is it about a horror score that, when done well, makes the movie so damn scary? PSYCHO, JAWS, HALLOWEEN...these are three titanic examples of musical cues being as integral to the terror of their respective films as anything else. I suppose it's because they portend the very horror that the rest of the movie embodies, and through music, strikes a direct chord in the heart of the viewer....

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. It’s a continuation. Whatever you want to call it, you are taking an existing property and placing new actors and, usually, a new script and making a...

Poltergeist (Movie Review)

  PLOT: The Bowen family moves into a house that has been built over an old cemetery. Chaos ensues. You know what happens. REVIEW:  It shouldn't be seen as blasphemy that I liked the Ghost House-produced POLTERGEIST remake, but it probably will be. I get why, but I think the truth of the matter is we should actually be grateful when a remake of a beloved property is both...

Original Vs. Remake: Poltergeist

Although our last House on Haunted Hill Original Vs. Remake ended in a tie, the readers were not upset as I thought they might be. A great deal actually agreed that both films may be different in terms of tone, but still represent our horror genre very well!
