The Test of Time: The Hills Have Eyes (1977)

We all have certain movies we love. Movies we respect without question because of either tradition, childhood love, or because they’ve always been classics. However, as time keeps ticking, do those classics still hold up? Do they remain must see? So…the point of this column is to determine how a film holds up for a modern horror audience, to see if it stands the Test of Time....

Recently - courtesy of the home video heroes Shout! Factory - I revisited John Carpenter’s THE THING and it was better than I remembered - and that's saying something...

Top 10 Political Horror Flicks!

Say friends, in this ever turbulent ELECTION YEAR, who's set to get their PURGE on this weekend? We recommend doing so, solely at the movies, as James DeMonaco's third entry is likely the sterling standout of the entire franchise. That said, politically motivated horror flicks are nothing new.

Arrow Video is bringing The Hills Have Eyes to Blu-Ray w/ 4K special edition

Wes Craven's 1977 film  THE HILLS HAVE EYES is a seminal work of the genre. The down and dirty feature is simultaneously a hardcore mutant carnage flick and an intelligent indictment of the American family by bringing a supposedly moral suburban family against a grotesque mirror image of themselves. While it's far from my favorite Craven movie, I'm tremendously glad...

Face-Off: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre vs. The Hills Have Eyes

This Thursday, families across the United States will be gathering together to celebrate Thanksgiving with some rather massive meals, the centerpiece of which will tend to be the cooked carcass of a turkey. When pondering what sort of Face-Off to feature this week, my mind turned to a couple of the horror genre's most tight-knit families, both of whom we were introduced to in 1970s classics -...

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...

And no matter how much we try to pay heartfelt homage, it feels like no tribute is good enough to honor the great work this undisputed titan of horror cinema gifted us for well over four decades.
