WORLD OF DEATH Ep. 156 – Pigskin

by Brad Snyder
This week’s World of Death installment serves up a large helping of psychological dread pitted against a backdrop of 70’s infused high school horror. If you were a fan David Mitchell’s “It Follows”, this is an episode not to be missed! Pigskin opens with the striking image of a girl staring into the never-ending underbelly of her school’s bleachers. An image director Jake Hammond uses as a symbolic warning before unravelling a twisted tale of mental illness, toxic masculinity and schoolyard pressures. Style oozes from Pigskin. The thumping synths and neon-lit hallways provide a nostalgic snapshot for fans of retro [...]

[Video] Gomez Addams’ Guide to Love on Valentine’s Day

by Brad Snyder
Name a more romantic duo. We’ll wait. If you’re looking for true romance with a horror twist, look no further than 1991’s The Addams Family, which offers up so much genuine affection between Gomez and Morticia that it’s kinda the perfect movie to cuddle up with on Valentine’s Day. Which is why El Rey Network is airing the film at 8:30pm EST tonight, Valentine’s Day! To promote the fact that they’re playing AF on VD, El Rey also whipped up a fun little video titled A Gentleman’s Guide to Love on Valentine’s Day, hosted by Gomez Addams! Well okay, so Gomez [...]

Warner Bros. announced today they’ll be shifting New Line’s The Nun from July 13, 2018, to September 7, 2018. Following The Conjuring and its Annabelle spinoff, The Nun centers on a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania taking her own life, with a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together they uncover the order’s unholy secret and confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun from The Conjuring 2. Directed by Corin Hardy, the film stars Taissa Farmiga, Demian Bichir, Bonnie Aarons, Charlotte Hope, Jonas [...]

[It Came From the ’80s] Belial is a Total ‘Basket Case’

by Brad Snyder
With horror industry heavy hitters already in place from the 1970s, the 1980s built upon that with the rise of brilliant minds in makeup and effects artists, as well as advances in technology. Artists like Rick Baker, Rob Bottin, Alec Gillis, Tom Woodruff Jr., Tom Savini, Stan Winston, and countless other artists that delivered groundbreaking, mind-blowing practical effects that ushered in the pre-CGI Golden Age of Cinema. Which meant a glorious glut of creatures in horror. More than just a technical marvel, the creatures on display in ‘80s horror meant tangible texture that still holds up decades later. Grotesque slimy [...]

The Curious Case of ‘Fright Night Part 2’: How Setbacks and Real Murders Buried the Sequel

by Brad Snyder
I’ve long sung the praises of Fright Night Part 2. It’s one of those rare sequels that still has the spirit of the beloved original that came before it, and it should have been a bona fide classic. Instead, it’s more like an estranged relative who has an endearing quality about them and everyone loves them, they just don’t get invited to the all the formal reunions and get-togethers. What’s even more peculiar about it is that Fright Night 2 doesn’t seem to be a target for haters of other sequels such as Friday the 13th Part 5 or Halloween [...]

What Lurks in ‘The Fog’ 38 Years Later

by Brad Snyder
You may be surprised to hear this, but a teeny-tiny movie called Halloween was released in 1978 to less than favorable reviews. Writer-director John Carpenter, along with his producing partner Debra Hill, assumed the film would quickly fade away from the public conscious soon after release. Of course, that film has gone on to become an establishment in and of itself within the horror genre, specifically the slasher film. At the time, though, it wasn’t until a reviewer at The Village Voice got their peepers on it and penned a glowing review that people really started to take notice. Based off the newfound [...]

[TV Review] ‘The X-Files’ Season 11 Episode 6: “Kitten”

by Brad Snyder
 ‘The X-Files’ turns to Skinner and his spotty past in an episode that does justice for both the character and the show, but barely “Have you ever wondered why after thirty-five years in the Bureau Walter Skinner isn’t sitting on this side of the desk?” Towards the end of The X-Files’ original run, a number of spinoffs were naturally put under consideration. One idea that gained a little steam was that the season five episode “Travelers” could act as a springboard for a series that focuses on Arthur Dale’s exploits with early X-Files cases. That’s a solid enough premise, but [...]
