    Here we go again, my weekly adventures in what I consumed in entertainment. Halloween- No, not the 1978 classic, but the 2007…not classic. I had seen this in theaters and had apparently liked it enough to buy the DVD at some point, yet had never watched it. This is something I did heavily Read More

Short Film Review: She Came From The Woods

At the last Connecticut Cult Classics double feature event in late October, Cult head Larry Dwyer mixed up the festivities from what was proven to be the normal routine.

October Fright Watch: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2

Instead of reviewing a new horror film that I had not seen before, this time I have decided to feature a “classic” film that I had not seen before. In this case that film would be the cocaine fueled 1986 sequel to one of the creepiest horror films ever. This time I cover The Texas Read More

October Fright Watch: Train To Busan

Every once in a while a  film can transcend the boundaries normally instilled by it’s genre. People who do not like horror films generally do not watch them, same for science fiction. Sometimes these films have elements that exceed what you would expect and make it more accessible to wider audiences. Train To Busan does Read More
