It's the Booze Talkin: Bring Back Big Budget Monster Movies!

Horror has always made a good home for monsters. All kinds of them. You have creepy crawlies or slithery beasts that came from space. There are insects as large as trucks. Technically, you could even add zombies and a few other modern horror nightmares. We have faced our share of creatures in horror, and frankly, we may be seeing more of them on the big screen. This year brings...

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 giant killer animals back to the big screen!

You know what scared the living f*ck out of me as a kid? Giant spiders. Giant sharks. Giant squids. You know, anything that was massive that attack us lowly humans. Now this was way before the SyFy channel cheapened it and added the crap CG with actors winking to the camera. In fact, the on-screen talent seemed to take it all seriously. Hell, the beasts didnít even have to be ridiculously...

Face-Off: Tentacles vs. Orca

In 1820, a ship called the Essex was sunk by a massive whale, the event that inspired the writing of Herman Melville's classic novel Moby Dick thirty years later. Director Ron Howard and a cast including Chris Hemsworth are bringing the story of the Essex to the big screen with this weekend's release of IN THE HEART OF THE SEA, and this impending event got me thinking of horror movies with...

Well done, lads! For today's O vs R, we are possibly stepping into some controversial territory. John Carpenter's THE THING is heralded as one of the greatest horror films ever made. A...

Top 10 Jaws Rip-Offs!

Holy T.S. Quint! Can you believe JAWS turns 40 years old next June? Fucking crazy, despite how timeless the infamously-difficult-to-make Spielberg classic still feels all these years later. Let's be real, JAWS is not only a master-class in first rate filmmaking, remember, it also spawned the modern day blockbuster - which doubles its importance when discussing the annals of cinematic impact....

It's the Booze Talkin': Can Hollywood take killer sharks seriously again?

What more could be said in yet another article about Steven Spielbergís masterpiece of cinema JAWS? As well, our very own Ryan Doom examined the underappreciated gem that was JAWS 2. For me, the two films took the very primeval terror of a great white shark and made for two of the most watched movies in my personal collection. And since we are now entering summer, it is my favorite time...

It's the Booze Talkin': Have movie going audiences become too cynical?

Ah summer! Once again it’s time for a slew of blockbusters and heavily anticipated feature films to battle their way to the top of the box office mountain. It is also that time of year when the enthusiasm some fans have been building turns to bitter disappointment – and even heartbreak. Why did Superman have to destroy an entire city in MAN OF STEEL? What in the world were...

Kill of the Day: The Thing (2011)

Say what you want about the recent THING reboot but I had a good time with it! For the most part the flick hit on all cylinders. At least that's this schmuck's opinion. For today's Kill of the Day we take a look at one of the more exciting scenes from THE THING where Juliette transforms into a .. 'thing' before running into, and through, Karl. All kinds of gruesome alien fun ensues!...

Be honest, have you ever cut your time short 3-feet deep in the shallows out of fear of the unknown, the unseen?! Liar...sure you have.
