In 20o7, a deadly virus pandemic breaks out in northern UK. The British government’s solution is a massive quarantine over all of Scotland. Those left in the quarantine area are left to fend for themselves, which doesn’t go over so well.
Fast forward about 20 years later and enter our badass leading lady, Eden Sinclair [...]
Next up in our 31 Days of Horror countdown is “The Wizard of Gore“, a “kind of” remake of a 1970′s Herschell Gordon Lewis movie of the same name.
From a writing perspective, I think “The Wizard of Gore” could have been good- probably even great, and maybe could have cracked my top 5 horror [...]
Hot Tamales are one of the few non-chocolate/gummy candies that I can remember adults taking an interest in. An for good reason: these tasty treats give you a tantalizing tingle on the tip of your tongue… Okay, enough with the t’s. Seriously though, Hot Tamales combine spicy cinnamon with gummy goodness in such a way [...]
From the opening scene “Cube” thrusts the audience, along with 6 characters, directly into a booby-trapped maze of cubed rooms. No one, neither characters nor audience, knows quite why they’re there. But the film never lets up by leaving those claustrophobic cube chambers for a flashback or an easy explanation. It maintains an intense focus, [...]
I am not a fan of the Butterfinger, but it’s such a quintessential trick or treating item that I didn’t feel right leaving it out. There’s really nothing good to be said of the Butterfinger… it’s too sweet and to crunchy. It’s like airy peanut brittle, which may be what they’re going for and may [...]
Famed Italian horror director Dario Argento has been in the news a lot lately. His most popular film, 1977′s Suspiria, is getting the big budget Hollywood remake treatment courtesy of Pineapple Express director David Gordon Green. That’s slated for a 2010 release. Perhaps even more exciting to Argento fans, his newest movie, Giallo, starring Oscar [...]
I’m salivating profusely as I type this… the mere thought of caramel + crispies + chocolate is drool-inducing. In my opinion, this is one of the finest candy bars man has ever made. It’s the prefect combination of chewy and crunchy. If only they’d start making a dark chocolate 100 Grand, life would be complete.
“Dog Soldiers” puts itself ahead of the pack right off the bat by coming up with a realistic reason for a bunch of people to be stranded in a dire situation. There’s a challenge in coming up with a premise that isolates the characters in some kind of horror hell. So many movies half-ass the [...]
“The Last House on the Left” opens with a long campy sequence that is reminiscent of “Happy Days” or even “Leave It to Beaver” in its quaint cheeriness. Mom and Dad sit in the den and joke with their coming of age daughter about her upcoming birthday. Life is simple. Everyone is all smiles. And [...]
You always knew you got a box of Nerds whilst trick or treating because of that distinct rattle. Nothing else sounds like a box of nerds.
Just the right mix of tart and sweet, plus you they come in packages with 2 flavors in one box- genius!
I never considered it before, but [...]
