Movie Review: HELLRAISER: HELLSEEKER

Continuing working my way through all the HELLRAISER movies, I am now up to number six. The previous entry, HELLRAISR: INFERNO, aka HELLRAISER 5, was pretty damn good. The people responsible for this one must have figured that, since that formula worked, they ought to simply reproduce it. This movie follows the same pattern as…

Movie Review: DUST DEVIL

This one popped up on somebody’s “Best Horror Movies You’ve Never Seen” list I read somewhere—I don’t even remember where—and it featured a Djinn. (Maybe. The entity in the film is never referred to as a Djinn.) I’ve mentioned before that I tend to enjoy movies featuring Djinn as they remain relatively few in number,…

Nhadiep, the Serial Killer Who Inspired a Legend

His reign of terror inspired two movies, 1989’s WINDPRINTS starring John Hurt and a pre-THE LORD OF THE RINGS Sean Bean, and the excellent 1992 Horror flick DUST DEVIL written and directed by Richard Stanley. But Nhadiep was real. A real, flesh and blood man, although his ability to avoid detection led people, as they…

Yes, the STRANGER THINGS Mall is Haunted

Last week I made a roadtrip to visit several of the filming locations for STRANGER THINGS, with one of the main places I wanted to stop being Gwinnett Place Mall, which was used as the location for Starcourt Mall in season three of the series. Cruise on over to our sister site of werewolves.com to…

The CULT OF DRACULA Comic

Courtesy of the fine folks at DREAD CENTRAL, check out this trailer and sneak-peek of the forthcoming comicbook series CULT OF DRACULA. And yes, we did have a couple’a guys kvetching last week because we posted articles about comics, and yes, I am being a little cheeky by choosing to post another one this week….

Movie Review: BLOODSHOT

I never read the comics on which this film is based, so I can’t say how closely they follow the storyline from the comics. That may just put me in the best position to review the movie, since I went in with no preconceived notions, no set of requirements that the movie had to achieve;…

Salt in the Wound

I’m one of those weirdo types who doesn’t like to watch trailers on the Internet. I prefer to see them the old-fashioned way, in a movie theater. I also prefer not to know ahead of time where a particular trailer is going to appear, again like in the olden days. I love the surprise of…

Dinner at the Peerless Saloon

As part of my recent roadtrip in search of the Hell’s Gate Bridge in Oxford, Alabama, I’d intended to stop by my (then) favorite restaurant in the nearby town of Anniston for dinner. That place was crowded like crazy with a waiting line stretching around the parking lot, so the lovely missus and I decided…

You Can’t Please Everybody

Guess it’s time for another one of those PSA posts that I have to make from time to time. Now I do get that there are some people, a lot of people, who get on the Internet for the express reason of bitching. We wouldn’t want to deprive those people of one of the great…

A Visit to Hell’s Gate Bridge

There are apparently two bridges with the unofficial name “Hell’s Gate Bridge”. There might be more, but there are two that I’m aware of. One is in New York City. I’m not likely to visit that one anytime soon. The other is located in the town of Oxford, Alabama, and I visited it this past…

TV REVIEW: NOS4A2 Season Two, Episode Two—“Good Father”

Ask and receive! Last week I mentioned how I would enjoy an episode of the series dedicated to Charlie alone, sans any inclusion of Vic or the overall storyline, and that’s just what I got with this week’s episode—the best episode of the series so far, in my not-so-humble opinion. We got to see Charlie…

Movie Review: CREEPSHOW 2

George Romero only wrote the screenplay for this one, basing the three installment stories on works by Stephen King, who was otherwise not involved, except to appear in a cameo. Michael Gornick, who worked as cinematographer on the original film, took over as director on this one. CREEPSHOW 2 is not as much fun as…
