2016 was legit such a great for movies, especially in the horror genre. With it becoming mainstream in recent years, we’ve seen different types of actors and filmmakers embrace it. This allows various styles to take the reign and make their mark in both traditional and absurd stories that play with conventions. My favorites from this year play off of the unconventional as some might not easily fall into horror, but as a horror fan, these are the movies I ended up loving. (more…)

Whether you’re a fan of Guillermo Del Toro or not, one can’t ignore the fact that the man loves a presentation. From his poetically educated monsters to grand set designs, Del Toro manages to always create an experience that colors outside the lines. His admiration of fairy tales and mythology shines on every medium he chooses to explore and that certainly reflects on the latest collection from the Criterion Collection. TRILOGIA DE GUILLERMO DEL TORO brings together three of significant pictures from the director’s impressive filmography, including one newly remastered. (more…)

I’m going to put this out there first: I am a huge fan of Rob Zombie’s movies. Going to see HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES was like a huge event and appeared that way with the enthusiastic audience I saw it with.

They introduced me to movies like WARLOCK and NIGHT OF THE DEMONS, resulting in several runs to the video store to explore my options. This interest of mine also lead to late nights of secret viewings in my room when my mom was working overnights. My grandfather use to bring bootleg VHS tapes from Mexico and one of them was the original HELLRAISER that came with a video introduction of a witch warning me of what was to come.  (more…)

Let me start off by saying I don’t consider myself the most knowledgable about the things I love. I love movies, but have never seem CASABLANCA. I love books, but have never read THE GREAT GATSBY. I love video games, but can’t get into ZELDA. With that being said, I do consider myself a collector.  (more…)

Every once in awhile when I’m drawing a blank as to what old movie to watch that I have never seen before, I like to google lists. I always see lists posted on social media sites like “Movies You Must Watch Before You Die” or “Movies You’ve Never Seen.” I like to google “Scariest Movies Ever Made” or things like “Horror Movies You Need to See.” One movie that constantly came up was The Innocents, a black and white British film from 1961 that more young people need to see.
