Mortal Kombat has been around since 1992, and since the first day it hit the arcade people have been outraged. A cursory search on YouTube will discover a trove of articles proclaiming just how terrible the violence is, and how it will destroy the innocence of youth.

So, 2016 has finally slid by us like the abhorrent slug monster it was. Sure it has left behind a disgusting trail of mucus and disappointment for us to absorb into our lives but at least the worst is behind us. Right? Right!?

The Gift

'Tis the season for gift-giving and receiving. But there are some presents you'd rather not receive. Especially if you're in a horror movie.

Perhaps it’s because I watch so much horror throughout the year, perhaps there is a certain sense of nostalgia in the air during this time of year but Halloween brings me back to my childhood.

There are few horror tropes quite as prevalent as the cat scare, but with such an abundance of fearsome felines, the question remains what is the greatest horror movie cat scare? In no particular order here are some worthwhile contenders for the number one spot.

This summer the nostalgic juggernaut Stranger Things kicked us all soundly in the teeth. It was able to achieve this through great storytelling, some fantastic child performers and with a killer synth 80s style soundtrack. The last piece is not to be overlooked.
