I’m always hesitant when a film is adapted into a television series. So often there’s just something about it that feels diminished, toothless compared to the cinematic original. What We Do in the Shadows is quite possibly one of the best horror comedies I’ve seen in the last five years and hearing that it was being turned into a series for FX was disconcerting to say the least. The mockumentary style antics of a group of vampires living together as roommates in the suburbs o
I am a lifelong Ghostbuster fan. Born in 1984 my formative years revolved around the original two movies and the Saturday morning cartoon series. It sparked a love in me of both the horror genre as well as a curiosity about the paranormal and the unknown. In the late 90’s I watched the short lived animated reboot, Extreme Ghostbusters and I have read volumes of the extended universe comic series that is available on Amazon and other online platforms. For years I have watched
Ever have to sit down and eat crow? I mean, seriously eat crow. I just posted a long, ranting complaint about remakes and decades long delayed sequels and now I'm as giddy as a school child with the news that Jason Reitman is bringing us a new Ghostbusters film.

As I upload a new episode of 52 Weeks of Horror I find I have a few staple artists that I watch when I get on YouTube. One of those artists happens to be Film Riot, the film making page that helps aspiring filmmakers and professionals with tips and tricks to help create some effects and looks. Ryan Connolly, who helms the Film Riot ship, has released a new short film called Chainsaw (A Horror Movie in Real Life). The film is funny as it works with some of the classic slasher
The first time I saw Wolfcop, was on Netflix, I had a cocktail in hand and prepared for a wacky Horror comedy about a down and out cop, Lou Garou, who gets an itch to fight crime after he becomes a werewolf. I have to say I wasn’t disappointed. I loved the film some of my other friends had a different take but hey, I guess when you see a close up of a penis turn into a wolf dork some might find that disturbing. No matter what my other friends thought I couldn’t wait for wolf
