I don’t like two-faced people. You can’t trust them. They tell you one thing and then lie, but on last week’s episode of “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” Edward Mordrake allowed my favorite character, Ethel (Kathy Bates) to live, even if it’s only short term. Edward still needs a sacrifice and I’m hoping he takes that looney tune, Dandy, with him. Follow me my little lot lice and see what’s happening under the big tent tonight. Read the rest of this entry
The genius of filmmaker Val Lewton is legendary. His themes and use of shadow evoked the German Expressionists of the silent era and brought on a new wave of thinking horror. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on the first of his horrors, Cat People, its strange sequel and sexy remake.
It’s so much fun expecting a baby, what with the shopping for little booties and preparing the baby’s room, a new mom-to-be is practically glowing with expectations. But when that little bundle of joy growing inside her is from Hell, she might want to rethink those birth announcements to friends and family.

On last week’s episode of “The Walking Dead,” we met with Pastor Gabriel, Church Lady Walker and her Wet and Wild zombie brigade, but we’re still left with a lot of unanswered questions, like: what’s Gabriel’s secret; is Beth alive; can Eugene really save the world, and will Gareth have another barbeque? If you go, bring dessert. Read the rest of this entry
No matter how hungry you get, there is one food source that is strictly taboo, firmly off-limits, and definitely not for civilized consumption. So it’s no wonder that gorging on human flesh is too harrowing and far too repulsive an act to ever consider – no matter how dire the (pardon the pun) stakes.

What you don’t know can kill you. We learned that on last week’s episode. Who could’ve foretold that Dell Toledo and Jimmy’s attempt to frame each other would cause the death of Meep, or that Elsa would be jealous of Dot’s singing abilities or that Dandy was crazier than Twisty? Who would have seen this coming? Maybe what the sideshow needs is a Fortune Teller. Yeah, that’s exactly what they need. Don’t you think? Read the rest of this entry
In last week’s episode of “Sleepy Hollow,” Captain Irving’s pricked finger brings bad news from Henry, and we got to meet a cool monster. With Halloween around the corner, my little sleepy heads, we meet a new monster of the week and it’s a ghost… or is she? What’s her connection to Ichabod’s past and who is flirting with Abbie?
