My secret dream is to one day be interviewed in a documentary with the word "expert" under my name at the bottom of the screen. That is me. I am the expert. In addition to my newfound home at the Blood Sprayer, I am also a contributing writer at anerdoccurrence.com!

Son of a Hundred Maniacs: A Nightmare on Elm Street Retrospective

Son of a Hundred Maniacs: A Nightmare on Elm Street Retrospective

Tweet Since his 1984 debut in the original A Nightmare on Elm Street, the child murderer turned crazy dream ghost known as Freddy Krueger has been one of the most instantly recognizable icons of the horror genre.  He spawned a seven-movie franchise (plus a television series, a crossover film, and a remake) and singlehandedly turned New […]

The Dark Knight Rises: The End of an Era

Tweet The eagerly anticipated finale to director Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, the Dark Knight Rises, opened in theaters this past weekend to high expectations and even higher hopes.  There’s never been a third Batman film in a series before this (although would anyone have wanted a third Burton or Schumacher installment?), and the almost universal […]

Tweet   As the rest of the months become increasingly reserved for last-minute two-screen release Oscar grabs and harsh acts of theatrical terrorism via the likes of Adam Sandler, I find myself looking forward to the late spring and summer movie season more and more with each passing year.  I fully expected this year’s rich […]




The Dark Knight Rises: First Impressions

The Dark Knight Rises: First Impressions

Tweet   So I’m pretty excited about Christopher Nolan’s third Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises.  And I’ll admit,  Nolan has never given me a reason to doubt him.  Well…outside of insisting on mispronouncing the main villain’s name for the entire first movie.  And having Batman drive a tank.  A WayneTech tank.  And putting machine […]
