Fright Night (1985) – Tom Holland

One of my favorite vampire movies is the next title up in the Monsters in the Movies book from DK Canada. Tom Holland’s Fright Night starring Roddy McDowall, Chris Sarandon, Stephen Geoffreys, Amanda Bearse and young William Ragsdale in the lead in this wonderful suburban update on the vampire legend. I came to horror movies…

Star Trek: The Next Generation (1990) – Remember Me, and Legacy

Captain’s log: stardate 44161.2 Gates McFadden gets a long overdue Crusher-centric episode that was written by Lee Sheldon. This episode first aired on 22 October, 1990. The Enterprise arrives at Starbase 133, where Dr. Crusher meets up with an old friend, who is catching a ride home with them. Unfortunately, he disappears, and seemingly has…

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…

Doctor Who S07E10 – Hide

  I realize I’m a week behind on this one, but hey, I was on vacation and covering a film festival! But what an ep! The cloister bell rings, there’s a knock 4 times, there’s ghosts and monsters, some fun banter, and a little more investigation into the mysterious companion. Neil Cross penned this episode,…

Tim’s Halloween Movies

It’s Halloween! Always a fun time of year, and while I could sit here and give you my favorite scary movies, I thought perhaps I would just list 10 films that I really enjoy, in no particular order, ones that are good for a spooky movie night. These are movies that are fun to watch, or you…

Poltergeist (1982)

The 101 Horror Movies let me revisit another one of my favourite films, Poltergeist. I won’t get into the whole “who really directed it dilemma” – I don’t care (though if pressed it feels more like a Steven Spielberg film than a Tobe Hooper film). I just know I like it. It’s a very simple…

The Thing From Another World (1951)

I was always anxious about watching this film, the John Carpenter remake is one of my favorite films, so I was worried what I would think of the original. I settled in to watch it, as it was next up on the 101 Sci-Fi Movies (as is the remake a ways down the line). I…

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)

The 101 Horror Movies is really kicking into high gear as I come across films I’ve never heard of, like Deathdream, to classics I’ve seen a couple of times, like this film, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre from 1974. Now say what you will about remakes and reboots, sometimes they work, and sometimes they don’t, but…

The River – Episodes 1 & 2

The River is the concerted effort of Oren Peli, of Paranormal Activity fame, and Steven Spielberg (amongst others of course), who made his own foray into spooky territory with Poltergeist. A film which Peli later paid homage to with James Wan with Insidious, which I have to admit, had some interesting moments, ideas, and a…
