Monster Monday: Blood Sand

Monster Monday: Blood Sand

Happy Monday, fiends! I'm especially excited about today's movie, because it is a prime example of the Piñata Principle: today's monster comes to you from Blood Sand, AKA Killer Beach, AKA The Sand. In the movie, a group of teenagers get drunk and stupid on a beach. The drunkest and most stupid among them find … Continue reading Monster Monday: Blood Sand

Remembering June Foray

Remembering June Foray

I have sad news to report, fiends: legendary voice actress June Foray died today at age 99. If you don't know her name, I guarantee that you know her voice. From Disney's Cinderella and Peter Pan to The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show to The Smurfs to The Powerpuff Girls, almost any cartoon you grew up … Continue reading Remembering June Foray

Romero Week — Creepshow

Romero Week — Creepshow

One of my favorite aspects of horror is its versatility. Horror movies can be bleak and depressing, but they can also be goofy and fun. George A. Romero could pull off both of these extremes brilliantly (sometimes in the same movie). Since yesterday's post was pretty heavy, I'd like to offer you something a little … Continue reading Romero Week — Creepshow

Romero Week — The Crazies

Romero Week — The Crazies

We’re all mourning the loss of one of the greatest horror directors of all time. Most of the headlines I see from mainstream outlets are memorializing him … Continue reading Romero Week — The Crazies

Today is a sad day for horror, my dear fiends. George A. Romero, legendary director and godfather of the zombie movie genre, has passed away. I had a fun Monster Monday planned for tomorrow based on a movie I watched last night, but in light of this news I don't think it would be appropriate … Continue reading Programming Note: Remembering Romero

I will judge Friday the 13th, The Burning, and Sleepaway Camp in several different categories of my choosing and then declare a winner. Like any good slasher, … Continue reading Summer Camp Slasher Movie Thunderdome

Monster Monday: Nightmare at 20,000 Feet

Monster Monday: Nightmare at 20,000 Feet

Greetings and salutations, dear fiends, and happy Monster Monday! The blog took a little vacation last week, but I'm back and I have a treat for you: a classic Twilight Zone monster from what is probably the most iconic episode of the series. I am a huge Twilight Zone fan. (Rest in Peace, Twilight Zone … Continue reading Monster Monday: Nightmare at 20,000 Feet
