The Time Loop Paradox Begins (Again) in TERMINATOR GENISYS





So yeah, Arnold Schwarzenegger is back in his eponymous role as da Terminatah. This time, however, he's too old for this shit.


I really hope he's make it to the end of  movie, it's his last day on the force before he retires!



This Terminator  franchise installment has created an ALTERNATE TIMELINE. (Really? Again?)


In this particular timeline Sarah Connor hooks up with da big T himself, and doesn't need saving. The soldier dude sent back in time by her son John to save her, ends up needing to be saved himself when he runs into a different T-1000 model. Woo.



Now, I do like that they kept Sarah a bad ass woman warrior figure, so I'll probably go and see this movie when it comes out. Maybe...

But, to me, it seems like a very convenient way to keep this franchise up and running without having to do a remake. I'd call this, the REBOOT of the series. But it doesn't really need to be advertised as a reboot because everyone loves THE TERMINATOR. If you say you don't, you're lying, and we know who you are.

It's not rated yet, but they're aiming for a PG-13 rating... Yay?





No Sarah, you can't stop Judgement Day from happening. If you did that, the entire series would stop existing! We need to make more sequels! 


Ye verily, this is the stuff of nightmares! 

Oh yeah, Doctor Who's Matt Smith is in this,  and Sarah Connor is played by that chick from GAME OF THRONES, Emilia Clarke. You know, Daenerys Targaryen, the dragon lady? Yeah, her.

20 Questions for Horror Authors: Carolyn Haines



Carolyn Haines is a prolific author who has written over 70 novels. She also writes macabre mysteries under the pen name, R. B. Chesterton.


1. What do you think makes a good story?

If a writer engages the reader’s emotions, that’s a good story. I enjoy books that engage my intellect, too, but the best stories do both.

'As Above So Below' Review





Ahhh, the mysteries of alchemy, the French catacombs, and the dark night of the soul; all of these things are explored in this found footage film. 

I thought that I was going in to watch another "Grave Encounters" rip off. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised with a movie that journeys into the darkness of the human psyche, and uncovers the very personal demons that lie within our very souls.

Pre-order Max Booth III's 'The Mind is a Razorblade' Now!


THE MIND IS A RAZORBLADE is a supernatural neo-noir horror novel of a man born into death. Drowning, he wakes beside two corpses. His memory has been wiped clean. He doesn’t know his name, what he’s doing here, who these people are, or even why one of them is a cop. Nor can he explain his strange telekinetic abilities. Questions plague his mind like hellfire, questions that begin a journey leading into the rot of downtown America, a journey that will not end until every one of his questions have been answered, despite who has to die in the process. Even if those who have all the answers aren’t human.

Talk about bad assed; this book is on the cutting edge of horror. If you don't read this book, you're seriously missing out on a good read!

ABC's 13 Nights of Halloween 2014 Schedule!



ABC Family's 13 Nights of Halloween Schedule has been released! Halloween is getting that much closer my fiends!

I highly recommend that you and your little monsters watch "Beetlejuice," "The Corpse Bride," "ParaNorman," "Coraline" and "Poltergeist." I highlighted the titles in the list below so that it's easy for you to find when these movies will be airing on ABC Family. 

I will warn you, even though "Poltergeist" is a PG movie, it's still scary as all get out. It may not be appropriate for very young viewers.

4 Reasons why "Silent Hills" will be the Scariest "Silent Hill" Game Ever Made!



There are four reasons why "Silent Hills", the latest installation of the "Silent Hill" franchise, will be the scariest game to be released by Konami in decades. With the addition of big names such as Hideo Kojima, Guillermo del Toro, and Norman Reedus, "Silent Hills" could very well revive the survival horror genre.

20 Questions for Horror Authors: Leigh M. Lane



Leigh M. Lane has been writing for over twenty years. She has ten published novels and twelve published short stories divided between different genre-specific pseudonyms. She is married to editor Thomas B. Lane, Jr. and currently resides in the outskirts of Sin City.


Her traditional Gothic horror novel, "Finding Poe," was a 2013 EPIC Awards finalist in horror. Her other novels include "World-Mart," a tribute to Orwell, Serling, and Vonnegut, and the dark allegorical tale, "Myths of Gods."

Top 6 of the Worst Found Footage Movies Ever Made




Seems like everyone is making a found footage movie nowadays. I've seen my fair share of them, and to be clear, I rather enjoy the sub genre of horror. Some of the scariest movies I've ever seen have been found footage movies. Unfortunately, since everyone is jumping on the found footage bandwagon, we've been inundated with cheaply made, horribly edited pieces of crap that leave the audience staring at the screen numbly and asking themselves: What the hell did I just watch? And why did I watch the entire thing when it was clear that it wasn't going to get any better than the first 5 minutes of the movie?


Ubiquitous warning: This post contains movie spoilers, and horrible bad movies that may cause you to lose SANITY points if you watch them. To spare you that fate, I've watched them for you. A word of caution, these movies are so bad, my reviews of them here are super snarky. Like, for reals.

Everything Wrong with 'Paranormal Activity' in 7 Minutes or Less


So many cliches, so little time!

"Paranormal Activity" is by far the most boring horror film I have ever watched. And I have watched so horror movies many that I've actually lost count. For reals. Who counts that stuff anyways?

Also; this movie is internally inconsistent. Watch this video to see why!




Watch the Trailer for Guillermo del Toro's TV series, "The Strain" Now!


FX has adapted "The Strain," a modern vampire apocalypse trilogy written by Chuck Hogan and Guillermo del Toro into a 13 episode television series.

The books are quite good, so naturally, I was really stoked to learn that they were being made into a TV series.

Synopsis From FXnetworks.com:

The Strain is a high concept thriller that tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll), the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph, his team, and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers, wage war for the fate of humanity itself.

More Attacks tied to a Child's Belief in Slender Man?



This is the second weekend in a row where there has been reports of a girl stabbing someone for Slender Man. Instead of being 12 year old girls, this time it was a 13 year old girl who attacked her mother.

She was wearing a white mask (probably similar to Masky in Marble Hornets if I am to hazard a guess) and waited in the kitchen for her mother to come home. When her mother walked in, the girl attacked her with a knife.

Slenderman is Invading our Reality: Kids Killing Kids to become Proxies?




Shared delusions, mass hysteria, and crazy 12 year old girls strike again. This time however, instead of the girls going nuts over One Direction, they are cray-cray for ol' Slendy himself.

According to Huffington Post, the Wisconsin girls wanted to kill their friend so that they could become Proxies of Slenderman and go live in his mansion in the Nicolet National Forest. They decided to kill her at night so that they wouldn't have to look her in the eyes, all so that they could go and live with Slenderman and be his Proxies. For those of you that don't know, the Proxies are considered agents of Slenderman, they go out and do things for him, or they enact his will in reality. Proxies are victims of the now infamous Internet urban legend, and his tools in the waking world of man. They really aren't something to desire being. Really, they're not. To be a Proxie is to live in suffering with no relief in sight.

I really begin to wonder what went wrong. What triggered these delusions? What drove two girls to wish so badly to escape their lives that they'd be willing to kill in order to do so?

Real or Not, this Footage of Poltergeist Activity is Very Creepy!

I'm not sure if this is real or not, but that really doesn't matter. This video of ghost activity after hours at an office building scared the crap out of me. Between the timing of the sounds and the camera angles, it did a really good job of creating suspense. Yikes!



'American Mary' Review




"American Mary" is one of those horror films that everybody raves about. I've had so many people tell me that it's a great movie, that I decided to sit down and watch it for myself.

I'm not sure if it's the fact that it's a slasher film made by women, (namely the infamous Soska Sisters), or it's taboo topic of extreme body modification that made people fall in love with it. Many people find the film appealing because it's subversive; it puts some rather unsettling taboos right out there for everyone to see.

"American Mary" presented an extreme social taboo in a way that makes it fashionable in horror subcultures; much like the sado-masochistic bondage, and the religion of experiencing pain as pleasure that the Cenobites from Clive Barker's "Hellraiser" did in the 1980s.



Watching "American Mary" is like getting to play Peeping Tom into the perverted closet of a body modder that has a fetish for black vinyl, high heels, and skin tight latex catsuits. That is why I think that it's going to be an important movie of note in the future, and why it has already achieved it's cult classic status here in the United States.

Watch the Trailer for [REC]4 Apocalypse Now!




Looks like they've completely abandoned the entire found footage genre for this franchise. And since that is the case, I'm not convinced that it's going to be an intensely scary movie like the first two of the series were. It appears that they've moved from claustrophobic chase scenes to scenes of utter carnage- and the boat motor in the teaser poster hints that it's another splatterpunk movie, like [REC]3 was.

But you don't have to take my word for it. Watch the trailer and see for yourself!

Top 3 "Halloween" Fan Films on Youtube




In honor of my new Google Plus Community, "John Carpenter's Horror Movies" I put together a list of the top 3 "Halloween" fan films that are on Youtube.

Enjoy!


3. "Halloween Awakening"
Damn it Jimmy!




2. "Halloween: Resurgence"
Hey, no one celebrates Halloween in Haddonfield anymore, so let's go to the Sanitarium in Smith's Grove and have a crazy party! What could possibly go wrong?





1. "Halloween: Boogeyman"
This one gets the number 1 spot because the acting is the best, from both the adults, and the little kids that star in it.

I got, like, 20 pounds of candy! 
Anna, you can't even lift 20 pounds!

Ryne Barber and the Case for Dr. Logan from "Day of the Dead"


Every once in a while I come across a horror lover that is also an excellent writer. Such is the case of Ryne Barber, author of the blog, The Moon is a Dead World. Barber takes the stance that Dr. Logan is the best character in Day of the Dead (DotD), and then goes on to explain why. While some may argue that Bub is the best character of DotD, I think it's important to point out that without Dr. Logan, the lovable zombie Bub wouldn't exist at all. In fact, he would've been shot and killed (again) shortly after the survivors got a hold of him. Bub is important because he is the most human of the characters, and he is one of the main driving forces behind the plot.

However, if Bub is the undead face of humanity, Dr. Logan is it's backbone.
