  • “THE CURSE / CURSE II: THE BITE” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    The ‘80s was a weird, wild time in the world of horror filmmaking. Imaginative, FX-heavy films were in vogue, most of which were gleefully R-rated and contingent on shock value to grab the insatiable horror audience. Likewise, the genre was sequel-crazy during the decade, franchising any and every horror property that made a buck, even if they were connected via title alone. And there’s no better example of both categories of ‘80s horror than in THE CURSE and THE CURSE II, a pair of genre oddities that are making their high-definition debut from Scream Factory this week.

  • Eerie Episodes: “THE NIGHT STALKER: The Werewolf”

    ,,

    While the age of streaming certainly has it’s pro’s and con’s, one of its greatest benefits is the ability to access archives of old horror television and introduce it to a new generation. In this respect, as someone who grew up watching THE X-FILES and FREAKYLINKS, KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER is both a great classic horror series but a fascinating time capsule as well. Humorous, endearing and fantastically written, THE NIGHT STALKER was the first horror series of its kind, and often treated the lore and mythology of classic horror villains with respect in a way most TV series at the time would respond with parody.

  • Found Footage… FOR REAL: Donald Pleasence & FEAR take Manhattan on Halloween!

    ,

    Let’s travel back in time, shall we? The year is 1981. In New York, SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE has become a shell of itself, falling in ratings as a new cast struggles to hit a chord with audiences while producers are desperate for any gimmick that could bring back lost viewers. In Los Angeles, THE DECLINE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION is being screened to cult success and massive controversy, with even the Los Angeles Police Department demanding the documentary- which objectively follows the budding, disruptive and violent punk rock music scene- not be shown again in the city. And in the world of horror, the producers of HALLOWEEN- taking a cue from the success of FRIDAY THE 13TH in the slasher fanbase’s unwaning interest in the subgenre- are getting ready to roll-out the sequel a full three years after Michael Myers came home the first time. And little do they know, these three events are going to collide in one of the most notorious and bizarre live events in television history.
