Retro Poster: "Village of the Damned" (1960)

Some of my favorite horror movie poster designs show illustrations from the movie, giving the viewer a glimpse of what they will see upon actually heading out to the theater and viewing the entire film. The poster design for the 1960 movie "Village of the Damned" shows imagery from the movie of the blond haired, glowing eyed children alongside bright, contrasting colors and a great tag line.

Retro Trailer: "Hell Comes to Frog Town" (1988)

Roddy Piper stars as Sam Hell in this cult classic about a prisoner who is forced to rescue a harem of virgins from an evil community of walking, talking mutant frogs. You see, Mr. Piper is one of the last fertile men in the world, (a result of biological warfare, natch) and he is forced by the largely female populated government to rescue these women and impregnate them so they can carry on the almost extinct human race. And if he wanted to escape? The women have strapped a bomb to his crotch so he can't go more than 100 feet away from the guard assigned to help him with his mission.

American Horror Story: Birth (Episode 11)

Well, the first part of the two part season finale has finally descended upon us and it was a pretty strong episode through and through. Any doubts that I've had about the series pulling off the haunted house story and keeping its family in the house are completely dismissed with what happened this week. The creators have really pulled together a horrific story for the first season and I can't wait to see the second half of the finale. I do have some questions about the direction of the second season, but we'll save that for next week.

American Horror Story: Smoldering Children (Episode 10)

What an episode this week! There was a murder investigation with Constance as the prime suspect, more backstory on how Larry Harvey got those scars and one heck of a big reveal surrounding one of our main characters. I must admit, I hold a special place in my heart for this episode, because the director of this week's episode is none other than Michael Lehmann, who also directed my all time favorite movie,"Heathers"! I don't really think this needs to be said, but if you have yet to watch episode ten, stop now because this discussion contains spoilers!

Retro Poster: "The Pit" (1981)

If you like weird 80's horror movies involving creepy kids, then "The Pit" will be right up your alley. Jamie is an awkward 12 year old boy who is neglected by his parents and bullied by his peers. He finds solace in talking to his teddy bear and spending time alone or spying on his babysitter. When he finds a pit of troll-like creatures in a hole in the woods, he uses their hunger to take revenge on the people who have mistreated him. I'm not sure if this movie was made with the intention of being a silly dark comedy, but that's exactly what this is.

American Horror Story: Spooky Little Girl (Episode 9)

Just when I think that I've had enough "American Horror Story" shenanigans, something happens that knocks me down and drags me back in, as is the case with this week's episode. If you haven't yet watched this week's episode, go do that now, because there are spoilers ahead. This episode was full of ghostly sexual advances, a few new murders to add to the infamous murder house and an antichrist baby. But it was really the second half of the hour long episode that answered a bunch of questions and hooked me back in.

Retro Trailer: "Dead End" (2003)

Looking for a fun Christmas themed horror movie? Look no further than the 2003 film "Dead End," about a family who takes a shortcut on the way to their grandmother's house for Christmas. Ray Wise and Lin Shaye star as Frank and Laura Harrington, a couple who get lost with their family on a seemingly endless and deserted country road. Mix in a mysterious Lady in White, a terrifying black hearse and a panic stricken family and this will be sure to be one Christmas movie you'll never forget. This little gem is available for your viewing pleasure on Netflix Instant Watch.

American Horror Story: Open House (Episode 7)

Episode 7 of American Horror story rung in Wednesday night with a series high performance rating and has apparently been growing strong for the past five weeks. This week's episode created more questions than answers, as what tends to be the norm in about oh, every other episode or so? So let's just jump right into some of those questions, shall we?

Trailer: "Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel" (2011)

Director Alex Stapleton brings us a highly anticipated documentary about Roger Corman, the king of B-movie making. The documentary features interviews with Quentin Tarantino, Ron Howard, Eli Roth, Brett Ratner and Robert DeNiro among others as well as a ton of archival footage following Corman's career. "Corman's World" opens in select theaters on December 16, 2011. Here's the official synopsis:

American Horror Story: Piggy, Piggy (Episode 6)

Despite this week's episode being chock full of school shootings, a suicide attempt and brain eating, it was actually kind of boring in comparison to the last few episodes. In episode six we get to see Tate shoot up the library, Violet finally uses the internet to research Tate and his past, and Eric Stonestreet (Cam from "Modern Family") guest stars as one of Ben's patients who is terrified of urban legends.

Here's the recap:
