Coney Island “Summer Of Horror”

Summer is upon us my friends and that means I’ll be searching for shelter from the abusive sun and all it’s skin burning powers. Luckily for everyone in the NYC area, which includes me, The Coney Island Film Society will be showing a different horror movie every Saturday night as part of their “Summer Of Horror”.

"Transformers 2" Trailer

For those who may be new to the site, we tend to take a bit less stringent approach to content when it comes to our blogs. Really, anything pop culture related is up for grabs, although we obviously tend to make sure the focus is normally on horror.

Midnight Movie (REVIEW)

At first glance, director Jack Messitt's snappy 2008 feature-length debut "Midnight Movie" may seem like yet another tired retread populated with a handful of pretty actors who are probably too young to genuinely appreciate the movies that inspired this surprisingly sharp, blood-drenched excursion into the well-worn slasher subgenre. And, for the most part, your knee-jerk reaction to the film is fairly accurate.

American Scary (REVIEW)

Sometime around 1977, I became aware of a late night phenomenon here in The San Francisco Bay Area.

Its host was a quiet, four-eyed, stogy-smoking oddball named Bob Wilkins.

Mario & Link "Put it on a Hook"

Will this nostalgia for our childhood's never end? I'm guessing no, since that would require actually growing up. Still, as the constant referencing to old forms of media continues, one has to grow weary of it after a while. If there's one thing that I will always be a sucker for though, it's pretty much anything having to do with that old 8-Bit Nintendo Entertainment System.

Childhood Terror: "Mr. Boogedy"

During our last podcast episode I was praddling on and on about a "Boogeyman" movie I had seen as a child. I couldn't remember a lot of the details, with the exception of a few vague images left in my head. Several of our loyal listeners, being the pop culture experts that they are, were able to steer me in the right direction when it came to the film I was actually talking about. Listener T-Dog hit me up first, and informed me that the title was "Mr. Boogedy".

Netflix Streaming: American Scary

Though reluctant to let you Mac users into our sheltered world of PC's and Xbox 360's, the Netflix streaming servers continues to bolster its available libraries, which equates to easy horror fixes for us addicts!

Modern Fossils Freeze Your Memories

This site is proof of the Internet's infinite capacity as a storage medium for our fondest memories. Through reviews, blogs, and features, we're able to preserve and revive forgotten films, games, and other forms of entertainment, and make it seem as if they're current. What we don't think about, however, is what will be physically preserved when the internet goes tits up and all of our storage is wiped.
