31 Days of Horror 2016: American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare “Chapter Six”


On the last episode of American Horror Story Shelby, Matt, Lee and Flora just barely escaped their Roanoke Nightmare, but the show ain’t over until the fat lady sings… or so we’re told. This week’s episode features Cheyenne Jackson as a producer with plans for a sequel. Will he get more than he expected on film? The camera never stops rolling. Read the rest of this entry

31 Days of Halloween: The Gorgon (1964)

Sometimes you have a history with a movie before you even experience it. This is becoming an increasingly difficult challenge in an age when everything’s on demand or one YouTube click away. In my youth, weird cult movies were things that were whispered about with reverence, only experienced in the pages of cinema books such as Danny Peary’s Cult Movies books, or by flipping through old issues of Fangoria magazine. I remember overnight camp counselors going bananas over The Rocky Horror Picture Show, back when you could catch screenings of it once in a blue moon in the theatre only, which is arguably where that film belongs.

I have the same history with Hammer’s The Gorgon.

31 Days Of Horror 2016 Brings “Harrow County #17” On The Wednesday Run

harrow-county-17As Biff Bam Pop! continues it’s 2016 edition of 31 Days Of Horror, this week, the Wednesday Run column gives you yet another in-season choice to read.

Imagine then, a small town in rural America, beset by a dreadful history of witchcraft and malevolent magic that is plagued in present day life by an unending series of “Haints” – inhuman creatures, ghosts, goblins and monsters!

Harrow County is an absolutely beautiful monthly horror series from publisher Dark Horse Comics, and one this site has recommended before. If you need to catch up, there have been three volumes collected already, with a fourth on the way, early next year. (Just so you know, Harrow Country is also in development as a television series!)

That said, the scary season is upon us and that means that the comic book to pick up this week is Harrow County #17!

31 Days of Horror 2016: Cooties (2014)


Everyone who knows me knows that I live and breathe the shuffling dead. I don’t know why I love zombies so much except that I truly believe this is where all of civilization is heading and, I’m hoping that the honey bees will be the next supreme species to take over the world because we suck at the job. As a zombie connoisseur I’ve seen almost every zombie movie ever made, but I’ve never seen the apocalypse caused by fast food. Did the horror comedy Cooties meet my expectations? Grab a chicken nugget and follow me. Read the rest of this entry

31 Days of Horror 2016: American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare “Chapter Five”


On the last episode of American Horror Story Shelby and Matt were able to save Flora while Cricket was being disemboweled by the Butcher. While I’m enjoying the documentary style of storytelling for this season, a lot of my friends do not. Maybe tonight’s episode will change their minds. Read the rest of this entry

31 Days Of Horror 2016 Finds “The Lost Boys #1” On The Wednesday Run

the-lost-boys-1-cover“One thing about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach…all the damned vampires.”

Oh, yeah!

With that one, end-of-film revelation, the 1987’s The Lost Boys cemented itself as a fan favourite, vampire-flavoured, horror-comedy. Grandpa knew the town was rife with the undead – all along! For a fervent fan base, that meant story-line speculation, insinuation and a broadening of in-film lore.

As a teenage kid coming out of that movie, my friends and I would endlessly debate: was Grandpa a vampire? How many other vampire clans were there in Santa Clara? Was David really dead? How many head vampires might there be? Wouldn’t werewolves make for a great sequel?

And therein lay the excitement…sequels!

Today, just in time for Biff Bam Pop’s continuation of 31 Days of Horror, Vertigo Comics releases a sequel miniseries to the film, affectingly and simply titled: The Lost Boys!

31 Days of Horror 2016: Ken Russell’s “The Devils”


There were two disturbing films that I saw in the early 1970s. Both films were about demons. Both films scared the stuffing out of me. The Exorcist and The Devils were both controversial for their time because of the subject matter. Even though I have not watched either film since, the torture scenes from The Devils are forever seared into my mind. But as blasphemous as that film was back in the day, there were lessons to be learned. I will share them with you… if you you’re not afraid… Read the rest of this entry
