Dissecting Jeff Goldblum!

JEFF GOLDBLUM! Any fans of Jeff Goldblum in the house? Where you at? Seriously, is there a major Hollywood actor who has a more distinguished and discernible look than Mr. Goldbum? I know we Dissected Michael Berryman a ways back, and he certainly contends, but in terms of A-list talent, Jeff Goldblum sort of stands alone. With his own offbeat energy and comedic...

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...

Top 10 Canadian Horror Flicks!

Although our very own The Arrow found it a little less effective than both Eric and I, there's no doubt that Robert Eggers' THE WITCH is one of the most harrowing horror films to come out this past calendar year. And don't look now, but the film was made in Canada! With this in mind, we thought it'd be a ton of fun to stir the old noggin and come up with a list of our favorite Canadian horror...

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...

Todd Lincoln talks his once planned version of The Fly

It's no secret that Todd Lincoln was once attached to revisit the wonderfully weird world of THE FLY , which got started with Kurt Neumann’s 1958 classic starring Vincent price and then was subsequently followed by a couple of sequels before landing in David Cronenberg's lap. In speaking with Collider about his segment in V/H/S: VIRAL , “Gorgeous Vortex”,...

Top 10 Medical Horror Flicks!

The medical horror film genre has a host of subsets, doesn't it?! You have the demented doctor variety, the viral outbreak type, the biological mutation kind, the insane asylum ilk, and of course - as this week's release of THE LAZARUS EFFECT reinforces - the resurrect the dead sort. Not sure about you, but I'm a f*cking fan of each and every one of those sick subgenres. Be that as it may,...

Original Vs. Remake: The Fly

I was a little pissed that our last Original Vs. Remake ended in a tie, but as luck would have it, the readers weren't put off at all. We got many cool responses in regards to both versions of The Town That Dreaded Sundown. The meta remake actually did get a good amount of well-deserved love. It really is a solid slasher entry and the original was a very creative starting point....

Top 10 Horrific Man-Anmial Hybrids!

Dude, TUSK? What else is there to say other than...WTF?!? Personally speaking, even if I weren't a lifelong Kevin Smith fan - in particular his sinister newfound collaborations with the great Michael Parks - the sheer insanity of the premise alone makes TUSK a must-see. I mean, Michael Parks going to painstaking lengths to morph Justin Long into a human Walrus? Holy F*ck! So, as the flick...
