Retro Trailer: "Ruby" (1977)

When I was growing up, I happened to catch the 1977 supernatural horror flick "Ruby" airing on TV and it scared the crap out of me. Since I always enjoy re-watching the movies that terrified me as a child and seeing how well they hold up today, I decided to check it out. While the movie does not hold up as well as I would have hoped, it does pack some effective scares and a pretty decent performance by Piper Laurie who plays the title role of Ruby Claire.

New "Carrie" Teaser Trailer

You know what movie I totally forgot was coming? That's right, the remake of Stephen King's "Carrie"! All things considered, nothing in this trailer screams 'bad.' Then again, it doesn't really show anything much besides Chloe Grace Moretz covered in blood. Considering that "Carrie covered in blood" is one of the most iconic shots in horror movie history, they would be pretty stupid to not include it in the promotion of the remake.

Beyond the Black Rainbow (REVIEW)

"Beyond the Black Rainbow" is a film that defies criticism. It's mercurial, only threatening on occasion to amass into something solid, something that can be quantified and critiqued. In fact, I'd be inclined to call it nonsense, if it weren't for the fact that it's so damn beautiful.

Described as a "Reagan-era fever dream inspired by hazy childhood memories of midnight movies and Saturday morning cartoons", "Beyond the Black Rainbow" centers on The Arboria institute, where creepy Dr. Nyle keeps a young girl captive in an all white room, cut off from the rest of the world.

Carpenter's "Halloween" coming back to theaters

Years ago I saw John Carpenter's "Halloween" on the big screen, sort of... I showed up to the screening incredibly excited, but was quickly disillusioned when I realized what I was watching was a DVD of the film projected on the big screen. The end product of this was a muddy, dark picture with terrible sound. Needless to say, I'm eager to wipe that experience from my memory.

Book Review: Richard Bachman's The Long Walk

Public enjoyment of others' grueling and gut-wrenching struggles has been a common phenomenon since humanoids decided to pretend to function using our brains. From the Colosseum to Bravo, it seems everyone loves a good Roman holiday. Richard Bachman’s (Stephen King incognito, for those unhip) 1979 novel The Long Walk perfectly illustrates man's dark desire to see others suffer.
