What horror fan doesn’t love a good haunted house story – especially one based on real people, places, and events? That’s Winchester in a nutshell.
If you’ve ever been to San Jose’s Winchester Mystery House (or heard of it), then you’re already somewhat familiar with the backstory to Winchester. Also known as “the house that ghosts built”, the Winchester Mystery House was built by Sarah Winchester, widow of William Winchester, inventor of the famous rifle. After her husband and daughter both pass away, the grieving Sarah becomes convinced that she’s... Read More
Brian Paulin is slowly, but surely, making a name for himself in the horror business. Hardcore gore fans will probably already be familiar with some of his previous work, including Bone Sickness and Fetus. He steps it up another notch with Blood Pigs, a different kind of zombie film that he wrote and directed in 2010. I can tell you two things right away about this movie that will make you want to watch it. First off, there is no CGI used in this film (that alone is enough to pique my interest). Not only that, but Blood Pigs was also voted the goriest movie of 2010 by readers of Rue Morgue magazine. If that isn’t a one-two punch... Read More
Rob Zombie's House of 1000 Corpses has nostalgia on its side but not much else. Pretending the last 20 years of teen slasher flicks never existed, Zombie creates a strange burlesque cocktail that reimagines The Texas Chainsaw Massacre by way of Vulgar. Four teenagers go chasing after an urban legend (Doctor Satan) in backwater USA and meet strange with an ex-prom queen (a busty Karen Black) and her immediate family. The kids have to wear masks before they can chow down on Halloween dessert and soon find themselves rubbing shoulders with several corpses-cum-scarecrows hanging outside Mother Firefly's... Read More
The above quote opens what could be one of the most disturbing movies I have seen in a long time. Uwe Boll’s Seed is an unflinching exercise in human cruelty. The movie begins with archival footage of humans being exceptionally cruel to a variety of animals that was provided by PETA, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. I thought this was unnecessary at the time, but in further watching the movie, I felt that the PETA footage started the story off in the right direction. It prepares the viewer for the cruelty expressed further in. The next scene is a man being executed in the fashion that is most popular in horror... Read More

1. A Nightmare On Elm Street Freddy Krueger is making a return No matter how hard we try, that pesky Freddy Krueger just won't die. That's because New Line Cinema is currently slaving away to make sure that our childhood nightmare comes back from the dead for a second time. It appears that the 2010 remake didn't go down as well with hardcore horror fans as hoped, so the studio is determined to try again by clawing our eyes out with a new reboot of the dream demon in 2018. 2. The Wolf Man 'The Wolf Man' may be the biggest horror movie 2018 Another classic monster that's also stirring from... Read More
