Remember When: 'Blair Witch Volume 1: Rustin Parr'
Twenty years ago, a $60,000 movie exploded into a multi-million dollar success. Shaky cam filmmaking, a cast of virtual nobodies, a small town setting, and gritty realism helped sell the movie as a non-fiction account. For weeks after, people discussed the viability of the Blair Witch, some going so far as to spend a night in the ill-fated woods thought to be the resting place of the hapless documentarians: Heather Donahue, Michael C. Williams, and Joshua Leonard.
Scary Tales Publishing's 'Monster Mash-Ups' Is Pure Creature Feature Nostalgia
The age of black and white creature features is dead. At least that’s what the CGI-laden blockbusters of today would have you believe. As moviegoers, we do get the rare treat of a purely practical monstrosity, but to see them come to life on the big screen is a rarity. What if the silver screen wasn’t our only outlet to relive the golden age of monster cinema?
Author Spotlight: Frank LoProto
It came from 1954. The beast of Sunny Florida. The thing from another world. No, these aren’t movie titles. They’re proper introductions for the first of many authors I hope to spotlight. He’s a horror factory from the East Coast, a lover of the supernatural, and a master of the written word. While you will know him as Frank LoProto, I call him dad. It may sound corny to spotlight a relative, but as I still struggle to find myself as a writer, it seemed appropriate to start this series off with an individual that means so much to my own career.
Weird and Pissed Off Reviews: Two Duds and a Nostalgic Gem
Thanks to a persistent illness that refused to grant me comfort this week, it was a pretty light week for being in the right frame of mind to care about movies. I did sneak in a few, however, so don't get too worried!
Weird and Pissed Off Mini-Reviews Vol. 1
Navigating the seemingly endless library of horror entertainment is a chore that so few want to take on. Dozens of movie streaming services, a myriad of independent developers, and fairly unrestricted self-publishing platforms make finding worthwhile horror movies, games, and books a chore.
It’s unlikely that the settlers of the Southern Nevada desertscape expected a museum of horrors to become a cornerstone of their peaceful early-20th-century city. Yet 88 years later, a decorated hearse, a zombified Spider-Man, and a conspicuous sign touting "Tom Devlin's Monster Museum" have been erected as markers for one of Boulder City's hottest roadside attractions.
'Resident Evil 2': MZSA
Can you remember the last time you were filled with so much fear that your heart pounded in your chest? Your eyesight grew blurry and your hands trembled? You prayed for the moment to pass so you could release the breath that ached in your lungs?
'Terrordrome: Reign of the Legends' Summons Our Favorite Monsters and More
It all started with a simple concept: What if the horror legends that haunt our nightmares faced off in an arena, going machete-to-chainsaw with one another in a bloody battle for supremacy? The team at Huracan Studios brought the idea to life, arguably better than New Line Cinema did with 2003’s Freddy vs. Jason, with a roster of 13 horror greats in Terrordrome: Rise of the Boogeymen.
Alien51 Gaming Is What Las Vegas eSports Is All About
When it comes to sports, no matter which it is, when you’re looking for a team to root for, you don’t go solely based off of its win/loss record. Sure, it’s always nice to back a winner, but if that team is missing the core values of what the world of sports should be about, the fun of rooting for them can die out quick. Just as important as talent is the team’s integrity and ability to respect one another and rival players, two qualities that seem to be dwindling throughout the world as a whole.
'Phantom Halls': Indie Horror Gets the Comedy Treatment
The dim beam of your flashlight is barely enough to illuminate your way through the darkened mansion. Floorboards creak and the walls whisper a haunting song as you and your ill-equipped squad search for an escape from the living nightmare. As with the horror movies we've grown so used to watching, everything starts off quiet—that is until you cross paths with that first deadly ghoul that sets the tone for your haunted adventure.
