Slasher Films Will NEVER Die: Eleven Upcoming Slasher Films to Look Out for.
For as long as I’ve known slasher films have been my favourite kind of movie. I adore the horror genre, but the slasher sub genre is where my heart always truly lied. It’s been this way since I was a kid renting every single VHS tape at Blockbuster working my way through every film…and every time it was the slasher film I remembered. I remembered the way my heart pounded in my chest when I…
Was ‘Before Watchmen’ a Waste of Time?
The idea of reading an expanded universe collection of Watchmenstories not written by Alan Moore didn’t tickle my fancy. But curiosity got the better of me (after several cats were sacrificed) and I picked up the lot this week. Going in my sense of pretentious geekness made me wary. The original is more than a masterpiece. It’s innovative, original and still the source of academic discussion to…
Videogame Review: ‘Outlast’
Available on: PC, PS4
Played on: PS4
I’m a little late to the game, if you’ll pardon the pun, when it comes to Outlast. As a mac user, I’m often behind the curve on Windows only and Windows-first releases. So I waited until Red Barrels’ recent survival horror game hit the Playstation 4, hoping that the console’s high fidelity as well as my own particularly great 1080p setup would offset…

From names like; Edgar Allen Poe, HP Lovecraft, and Richard Matheson to more contemporary writers such as Stephen King, Anne Rice, and Dean Koontz; writing tales that terrify can gain you great notoriety.…
The Pull List: 3/5/2014
Honestly, I haven’t really been crazy about this book since the very awesome first arc. This one has been really great though: Cinderella as a super spy getting in trouble in India with her old rat buddies.
Forever Evil #6
Forever Evil has been better than I thought. As the penultimate issue, there will be some big reveals finally. Like what is going to happen to Nightwing. Or who…

Disney Dinner and a Movie: The Princess and the Frog
Just in time for Mardi Gras I present to you: Disney Dinner and a Movie: The Princess and the Frog!
The Princess and the Frog is one of my top 5 favorite Disney films and is, in my opinion, somewhat underrated. The story is rich and full of fabulous characters that represent all the different facets of New Orleans personality. Taking place both in the city and the surrounding bayou we get…
The Invisible Oscars - Awards We Need to Have
So it’s the Oscars, and the media will be agog with the big name actors, directors and movies. Will Leo finally win something? Will Best Picture be another bland look at history? Will, in good conscious, it be as tedious to sit through as last year?
And will they start recognising some of the artists and talents who dedicate their work to the silver screen without the glamour of a multi-billion…

The Night The Oscar Died
For the most part, awards ceremonies have never particularly interested me. The Grammys? Sorry I don’t care to see Lady Gaga in a meat suit or Kanye West shouting who’s the greatest of all time. (OF ALL TIME!) Tonys? I don’t see enough Broadway plays and frankly I wouldn’t know June Squibb from June Cleaver if she hadn’t been nominated for Nebraskathis year. The Emmys? …
