Millennium (1998) – …Thirteen Years Later, and Skull and Bones

Micheal R. Perry pens the fiftieth episode of Millennium that feels like it riffs a bit on the whole meta horror movie serial killer theme revolutionised a few years earlier by Wes Craven’s film Scream. Airing on 30 October, 1998, the episode was another Halloween episode. This time around, Frank (Lance Henriksen) finds himself mired…

Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993) – Adam Marcus

New Line Cinema takes over the reins of the Voorhees series for the next three films, and for their first film, the creator of the original film, Sean Cunningham insisted on something different. Adam Marcus, who served as the film’s director, and one of the film’s writers definitely did that, and delivered one of the…

Ready Player One (2018) – Blu-Ray Review

If there’s a movie that will serve easter egg hunters by being released to blu-ray (and DVD) then it’s Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Ernest Cline’s iconic, nostalgia inducing science fiction romp, Ready Player One, available today from Warner Brothers. Tye Sheridan stars as Wade, a young dreamer, who like everyone in his generation, living amongst…

Trailer Tracks: Nightmare On Elm Street – Wes Craven

  As a teenager, my brother, our friend and I, suddenly got into horror movies, and we began renting them on VHS and watching them together pretty much every week.  Some were gross, many were cheesy, several were scary as hell, and all of them were good fun.  While it was the 3rd film in…

Directed by Woo-Ping Yuen, who would later become the fight choreographer of such films as The Matrix, Drunken Master is a fun romp and a favorite amongst fans of the…

Toronto After Dark – After – Ryan Smith

Take a little of the small town spook of Stephen King, a splash of dark scare of Clive Barker and a dose of the magic and wonder of Amblin era Steven Spielberg and you may have a general idea of what to expect from Toronto After Dark’s presentation of After. Ana (Karolina Wydra) and Freddy (Steven…

Friday The 13th (1980) – Revisited

I’m revisiting this one, though I wrote a post about it some time ago. Apprently it made the list of 101 Horror Movies, so I thought I would reexamine it in the context of all that had gone before it. Much like Halloween before it, it full on embraces the stalker/slasher films that permeated the…

Phantasm (1979)

A year before Mrs. Voorhees (spoiler I guess) started her bloodbath at Crystal Lake, and 5 before d haunting nightmares, another frightening character was killing people and haunting others in their dreams. The Tall Man (Angus Scrimm). In Don Coscarelli’s Phantasm, the Tall Man is a wickedly imposing and frightening figure who stalks our heroes…
