Blood On Screen (Kolobos, 1999)

So, in the early 90’s, MTV decided they needed to expand their programming. One of their first greatly successful experiments was an “unscripted show” that put a bunch of young people from all over the country into a single house that would film the…

Welcome to October!

Well… the last couple of Months got away from me. It seems every August tends to slip away and my Septembers go silent.  This year I have started trying my hand at selling art and August and September saw me run into some crunch….

The Night He Came Home 40 Years Later (Halloween, 2018)

It has been forty years since the rampage of Michael Myers in Haddonfield, IL.  And Michael Myers absolutely was caught and has been institutionalized ever since. He totally did not massacre a hospital or anything else. The trauma had a profound effect on Laurie…

October: The Dead, Martians and Atomic Brains

Welcome to the month of October.  As with every year, it will be scary movies all month.  Themes for this month include the films of George A. Romero and Tobe Hooper. I had started doing a zombie theme for the month, but the death…

Carving a Niche

As part of my October Horror Movie Madness, I am going to explore the films of John Carpenter.  I will start at the beginning with Carpenter’s Student Film and work my way up. Noticeably absent will be Halloween, as I covered the entire Franchise…

After the failure of Halloween Resurrection, The franchise regrouped and tried to figure out their next step.  And they were stumped.  So what they decided to do?  Reboot the franchise. Rob Zombie had two films under his belt, and while the response to House…

The Night He Jumped the Shark (Halloween Resurrection, 2002)

So, if Halloween H20 tied everything up nicely and gave closure for the character of Laurie Strode, what did they do for number eight?  Why completely undo it of course!  No doubt, H20 was a strong enough success that they decided to take a…

The Night He Goes to School (Halloween H20, 1998)

By 1997, slashers had almost seemed like a dead genre. Frankly, Halloween 6 could have been the death bell. Yet, 1996 was also the year that slasher pics got a shot in the arm. A little movie called Scream-a satirical look at the genre…

The Night He Came Home (With Reinforcements) Redux (Halloween 6 Curse of Michael Myers: Producer’s Cut,2014)

Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers was terrible.  It was Plodding, confusing and a genuine mess.  I went back and revisited it and even realized I had filled in the blanks.  The cult that oversees Michael is barely seen.  Oh, we meet some…
