The Evolution of the Slasher Film

In the Beginning There was Hitchcock In my 120 Years of Horror post, a clear path was mapped from the advent of film making to the current milieu dominating the horror genre; the slasher was a late bloomer within this genre. By the 1950s film making was fast moving away from the familiar tropes and... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Curious – How Curious is Bi-curious?

Other than the shit dino porn I've reviewed for this blog, I've not really had a chance to read a gay romance novel and give it serious consideration. This was one of my Kindle recommended reads from Amazon. I read the blurb and thought that this was going to be all kinds of awful. Two... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Probed: The Encounter(s of the Hard Kind)

I didn't have the highest of hopes for this 32 page pamphlet, especially after the wondrous smut I've read for this blog. I couldn't help myself, this one was free on Amazon. I thought that an alien based literary porno would round up my unholy trinity of nasty with the dino porn and the meth... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: The Babadook – in collaboration with the blogger formerly known as James

Genre: Horror, Drama, Thriller Director: Jennifer Kent Running Time: 93 Minutes I didn't care enough about this movie to watch it. Then the reviews started rolling in, and though I didn't read many reviews, it was clear that this was a well-liked horror film. I sat up and paid partial attention.

This was not the paranormal, spine-tingling, thrilling, taboo filled joyride I thought it would be. This booked robbed me. I thought I would be disgusted and amused by the... Continue Reading →

Game Review: Outlast – No Maglites were used in the making of this game

Release Date: 2013/2014 Developer(s): Red Barrels Publisher(s): Red Barrels Platforms: Windows, PS4, Xbox One and Linux OS X I knew nothing of about this game when I heard about it from a friend. In fact, the only reason I bought the game was because the aforementioned friend was too scared to play it alone. Don't be mistaken, this is... Continue Reading →

120 Years of Horror

What was the first horror film ever made? Most people would guess Dracula or Nosferatu, maybe even Frankenstein; and those are good guesses for the average Joe. If you were one of those who would have gone with Nosferatu, you would only be about 27 years off. Many film buffs, film scholars and fans would agree that the first horror... Continue Reading →
