Shock-O-Rama: Demons by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(April 10, 2013)
Nothing cramps the style of unchaperoned teens like Satan. I would figure he'd leave them to their sinful indulgences, then settle up accounts after time had it's way with them. But the Devil isn't a patient creature and he's also not content to simply pil

Mania Box Office Report: Hail to the Dead Baby! by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(April 08, 2013)
The Evil Dead took home the box office this weekend and the dinosaurs still ruled their island. I was wondering if a remake of film a film released 32 year ago would have any steam at the box office. On that note, what about one released 20 years ago? I th

In Memoriam: Roger Ebert by Rob Vaux, Writer
(April 04, 2013)
I remember the first time I tuned into Sneak Previews, the PBS movie show featuring a pair of Chicago critics named Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert. Like of a lot of movie fans, I found the show a revelation: snarky, witty and fun, but also filled with passion

Shock-O-Rama: Within the Woods by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(April 03, 2013)
With Evil Dead hitting theaters this Friday it's been damned near impossible go anywhere on the 'net without coming across press for it (or being startled at 2 a.m. by it's brilliant "Don't Skip it" add on YouTube). The reaction to a remake of a franchise

Mania Box Office Report: Yo Joe! by Robert T. Trate , News Editor
(April 01, 2013)
Was it nostalgia or was it that we have all forgotten by Stephen Sommers original film? Perhaps we just love the idea of G.I.Joe that much, that we are willing to fork over our money? No I got it. It was the Tatum! Channing Tatum brought out the ladies. Wh

(March 27, 2013)
An accountant, checking his watch while struggling to maintain his grips on a plethora of binoculars. An empty desert road dotted with black wooden chairs, staggered about at odd angles. An unmarked cop car approaches up the road, absurdly swerving to and

Mania Box Office Report: The Croods Wins. Yes, The Croods by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(March 24, 2013)
It definitely had a better cast than Escape from Planet Earth, but I’m sure none at Dreamworks thought that it would win the weekend. However, if you look at the numbers, Olympus Has Fallen is the true winner of the weekend. It grossed half its budget al

Shock-O-Rama: The Beyond by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(March 20, 2013)
Considered by some to be the Lucio Fulci's best work, ever better than more well known Zombie (off the kedge, shark on corpse fans!), The Beyond began to cement its modern popular midnight movie status in the mid-90's, when it hit the American home video m

(March 18, 2013)
It was a battle of magicians this weekend as Oz the Great and Powerful met the newcomer The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. Oz pummeled Burt as did the Halle Berry thriller The Call. Overall Oz is the true winner as it is now is on track for Alice in Wonderla

Shock-O-Rama: Six-String Samurai by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(March 13, 2013)
There are some films that are completely a product of a small slice of time. They're so rooted in the sensibilities undying them that they wouldn't have worked any other way. It's in the solid of the late 90's Neo-swing revival that Six-String Samurai mana

Mania Box Office Report: OZ the Great Box Office Draw by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(March 10, 2013)
Who else took that trip down the Yellow Brick road? Who else thought the film was “meh”? After watching it, who else was shocked that Disney has already hired a writer for a sequel (read here)? I went in with an open mind, because one cannot compare it

Shock-O-Rama: In Defense of Quarantine 2 by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(March 06, 2013)
Shock-O-Rama's been a number of things in the past. Typically I use it to champion older films, lesser known genre films that deserve your love and attention. Sometimes I've climbed upon it like a soapbox, as when advocating the preservation and exultation

Mania Box Office Report: The Giant, Not so Giant by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(March 04, 2013)
With a name a change and a CGI heavy effects trailer, Jack the Giant Slayer took home the weekend box office. What is worth noting is the weekend total in relation to the over budget. Jack made $28,000,000+ yet had a budget of $195 million.

Oscar Screed by Rob Vaux, Writer
(February 19, 2013)
The Academy of Motion Pictures is a gang of pretentious snobs. We knew that, of course, but its brazen hypocrisy comes into the forefront with their much bally-hooed celebration of James Bond’s 50th anniversary at this year’s Oscar celebration. They’

Mania Box Office Report: Die Hardest by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(February 18, 2013)
Love doesn’t conquer all as Safe Haven couldn’t compete with the fifth installment of the Die Hard franchise. Safe Haven also fell to Identity Thief proving people would rather laugh or catch an action flick then see a romantic sap fest. My question to
