It’s Not Halloween Without Elvira!

It’s Not Halloween Without Elvira!

It’s the spooking season, and I would know. But it just wouldn’t be official without the Queen of Halloween herself, ELVIRA!  Thanks to Hulu, the Hostess with the Mostess is back to do what she does best, showing her fawning audience the goods! You know… showing off the best of the B-Movies!

Elvira has been sorely missed from the airwaves since her quest to find a successor in The Search of the Next Elvira in 2008, only making occasional TV and Film appearances.  Although that hasn’t kept her away from the stage as she’s recently returned to her live show at Knott’s Scary Farm, this year performing her Elvira’s Big Top dance and comedy show.  She’s also been co-hosting the Comikaze Expo with comic book legend Stan Lee since 2012, giving nerds the gothic fetish fix that they love so much.

Gather together you groovy ghoulies, the Queen is back!

Feature: Let’s talk about Hideo Kojima’s P.T.

During Gamescom 2014, Sony revealed a trailer for a new game that was so scary you might involuntarily evacuate your bowels. Of course I thought “this can’t possibly be true, this is all just a part of the hype machine. Right? Right?!” Wrong. P.T. is possibly one of the scariest console games I’ve ever had the misfortune of playing. And here’s the thing about it, it’s not even a full game. It’s literally just a “Playable Teaser”, hence the name “P.T.”, for a game that is developed by 7780s Studio and may or may not play like the teaser. Of course, if you choose to read on, I will spoil what the game actually is and try to walk you through it. So if you want to play it, you can pick up P.T. for free on the PlayStation Network store.

Review: Doctor Sleep

Review: Doctor Sleep

In his afterwards, Stephen King points out that he almost didn’t write Doctor Sleep, the sequel to The Shining. The trouble with sequels, he points out, is that no matter how brilliant it is, there will always be someone who’ll read it and say “Nope, nope, it’s just not as good.

And he’s right. You can’t help comparing Doctor Sleep to The Shining, and I do think The Shining is the better book by a long shot. But if you can read Doctor Sleep and try to see it on its own merits, as a fun, stand-alone horror story, it’s really enjoyable. And nicely chilling, as any halfway-decent Stephen King book ought to be.

Review: Frankenstien’s Army

In a time of movie oversaturation, it’s tough to stand out in a crowd, especially when it comes to the horror genre. These days films are judged by their budgets instead of the creativity put into them. That means films like Frankenstien’s Army unfortunately fly below most people’s radar. That’ll be too bad for them, because they’ll be missing out of some of the most fun and creative monster designs seen in years.

Movie Issues: You’re Next

Trailers can be the worst thing to happen to a movie. In 1:30 minutes, a lasting impressing needs to be made that leaves the audience wanting more. You’re Next is currently suffering from this problem, as its trailers make it look more like a rip off of The Strangers than the incredible experience that it is. You’re Next is a new school slasher film that turns several horror troupes on their heads and features one of the BEST female protagonists that we’ve seen in a long, long time.

World War II, Steampunk, and Frankenstein… what else could anyone ask for?  Coming soon to home video after a short run in select theaters, this horror story set in the twilight of WWII from director/creator Richard Raaphorst is more than a just another zombie Nazi flick.  Perhaps the biggest thing to grab people’s attention has been the amazing design of the patchwork monsters by Art Director Milena Koubkova and crew.  Both truly terrifying and awe inspiring, Frankenstein’s Army is sure to be a fall favorite and just in time for Halloween.

Movie Issues Review: Evil Dead

The Son of Sam has returned, and his name is Fede Alvarez. Based on the 1981 Cult Classic The Evil Dead directed by Sam Raimi (Wizard of Oz), the newest incarnation Evil Dead released this friday isn’t a remake as many have thought, but rather an intended sequel with A LOT of fan service to the original. Evil Dead still finds a familiar cast of young 20-somethings in a familiar cabin where an evil is released and one by one everyone dies brutal, gory deaths in a film that is relentless from beginning to end.
