Full Dark, No Stars – Stephen King

Tweet If you didn’t know by now, I am a huge Stephen King fan, so naturally I was stoked when Full Dark, No Stars came out. Yeah, I’m a little late in writing the review (about three weeks late) but this has been a crazy month for me. The book is spectacular; a real return […]

Oozing with Charm: My Top Five “Melt” Movies

We’ve all known the horror and despair of an ice cream cone melting faster than we can eat it on a hot day. How much more horror and despair would we experience if, instead of an ice cream cone, it was our face melting?




Reliving The Omen Trilogy

Reliving The Omen Trilogy

Tweet There are few trilogies in the horror genre and there are even less that actually form a cohesive series. Either the sequels seem forced or the series ends inconclusively. The Omen is a rare trilogy–one that works well as a holistic franchise. Chronicling the rise to power of Damien Thorn, the antichrist, The Omen […]

Battling Your Inner Demons: Adam Mason’s “Luster”

Battling Your Inner Demons: Adam Mason’s “Luster”

Mason does a good job straddling the line between the gritty indie style he’s become known for, and mainstream marketability. Fans of his previous work will not be disappointed, yet casual viewers are not left feeling alienated. The characters are all interesting, and easy to relate to. The story is smart, and compelling, yet easy to follow, and the ending is both satisfying, and unexpected. Adam Mason stepped outside of his comfort level with this film, proving that he’s not a one-trick pony. With Andrew Howard’s career building steam, perhaps a much deserved theatrical release will be given to “Luster” in the year to come.
