Original Vs. Remake: The Town That Dreaded Sundown

More people actually seemed to disagree with the outcome of our last Original Vs. Remake which had the excellent remake Let Me In barely defeating the equally excellent Let The Right One In. I understand how many would feel the original deserved the big W. I do feel both films are outstanding and the remake really only won because of single, less significant category. Today, we are...

It's the Booze Talkin': Subpar PG-13 horror keeps making coin,we're screwed!

As a horror fan I feel we should be ecstatic. After its second weekend at the box office, a “scary flick” remains in the top spot for Halloween! YAY for genre fans! Unfortunately, the horror film in question is far from horrific, it is a watered down, teen scream with zero scares and not a sign of personality. OUIJA is a lame attempt to cash in on the month of October and...
