Like his peer Quentin Tarantino, writer/director Michael Keating is famous for making films that are all about borrowing from the greats to create something truly unique. Carnage Park is definitely a good example of his fast-paced filmmaking style in action, but how does it stack up to his other work, and is it actually worth a spot on your running list of must-see films?
Direction is just as important as story and even more important than acting. For this reason I probably have more favorite directors than I do actors or actresses. Takashi Miike is easily in my top five all time favorite directors. Before there was Imprint(Masters of Horror Season 1 Episode 13), there was Ichi the Killer andHappiness of the Katakuris. And before those two cinematic gems there was Audition; an absolute masterpiece of Japanese horror film making.
Taken from a novel written by Ryu Murakami, Audition starts by introducing us to a widower,... Read More
Breaking at the Edge is a 2013 horror film that’s actually more creepy than scary. Two brothers kill their half sister in order to inherit their wealthy estranged father’s estate. And when the younger brother’s pregnant wife finds out, they plot to kill her too.
2 out of 10 stars. What I didn’t like was the truly bad acting by the Brazilian actress and the “ghost” of Sara Randolph. We’ve come a lot further than this. The rest of the cast wasn’t much better. Bad casting can really ruin a film.
Ian and Bianca Wood are expecting a baby. But Bianca is having pains and they have a history of miscarriages. Bianca... Read More

Horror Galore kindly asked me to write a monthly article about ten best horror books I have read, so I'll try to do my best! This list is completely personal. I read LOTS of horror due to my job (I am a horror book promoter) so I can say I read many good and not-that-good books. I'm going to explain why each one of these books impacted me and left a print in my mind. BLACKWATER VAL by William Gorman "Blackwater Val" is a layered novel. When you grab it the first time, you can't imagine where you are diving into. Level by level Gorman absorbs your mind in a horrific nostalgia that reveals the disturbing... Read More
The Dark Knight Death: Heath Ledger Here, Ledger attends the Venice Film Festival in September 2007. Heath Ledger made a name for himself as a quick-witted heartthrob in "10 Things I Hate About You" and "A Knight's Tale" before moving on to more dramatic roles in iconic movies that included "Brokeback Mountain" and the second installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman movie series, "The Dark Knight." While Ledger was filming "The Dark Knight," he said in interviews that the scary role of the Joker contributed to his prescription drug use -- he often became so immersed in the characters he played that...

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
