Alien 3 (1992) – David Fincher

Sure the special edition taken from Fincher’s workprint wasn’t unveiled until 2003, but it’s the only way I’ll watch the movie now, and makes the film a little stronger than its original theatrical cut. This corner of the Alien universe is my next stop on my journey with the Sci-Fi Chronicles, as it seems I’ve…

Trailer Tracks: Poltergeist (1982) – Tobe Hooper

Whether Hooper or Spielberg directed this movie has been up for debate for years, I do know that it is one of my all-time favorite haunted house movies. I’m a little anxious about the remake, but hopefully they don’t try to overdo it too much. This one works, because it feels like it could happen…

Alien (1979) – Ridley Scott

I love this movie, and I’m so glad the 101 Sci-Fi Movies list brought it to me! Any excuse to throw this on the blu-ray is a good one, so I was quite happy to spend some time with the ill-fated crew of the Nostromo again. Alien is essentially a haunted-house story, and nothing really scary…

Ju-On:The Grudge (2003) – Takashi Shimizu

I remember watching both the original Ringu and Ju-On, so it was fun to revisit them on the 101 Horror Movies list. And I still stand by my belief that little kids that make cat noises are creepy, and women should not let their hair hang down in front of their faces and crawl around…

A Tale of Two Sisters (2003) – Jee-woon Kim

For me, there has always been something creepy and disturbing about the horror of Asian cinema, it has the ability to get under my skin and have moments that can actually earn a jump or two from me, so it was with equal parts excitement and trepidation that I turned to the next title on the 101 Horror Movies…

The Others (2001) – Alejandro Amenabar

The 101 Horror Movies list is coming to an end, there’s like 8 left, 7 now! But not to fret, I was tended to during Christmas, and very shortly while the 101 Sci-Fi Movies list continues, we’ll be adding the 101 Action Movies to the rotation, as well as a slew of films from the…

The American Scream (2012) – Michael Stephenson

I’m either late for this year’s Halloween, or very early for next year’s but just wanted to talk about a highly enjoyable documentary I came across on Netflix the other night. The focus of the film is a trio of house haunters. I had no idea what these were, or that there was an entire…

Hellraiser (1987)

I came to the worlds created by Clive Barker in late 89, early 90, when I was in University out east in Nova Scotia. Until that time, I’d spent a lot of time with Stephen King books, which I read voraciously, and there were creepy things in them, but never really freaked me out. Clive Barker’s…

V/H/S (2012)

I finally got around to seeing V/H/S – I knew I wouldn’t get through it in the theater, for the Toronto After Dark Summer Screenings. I don’t deal so well with shakey cam on the big screen. And now, having seen it, I’m also glad I didn’t stay for it, I would’ve walked out of…
