(October 21, 2014)
Let's open the door to potential horror credibility blasphemy- I unabashedly dig the 1988 remake of The Blob. As the paper presses slam to a grisly halt, the evening watchman stuck in the teeth of their gears, long time readers are perhaps confused. I've w

(June 16, 2014)
Being the obsessed horror and cinema fan that I am, I've spend nearly my entire weekend engaged in the consumption of movies. From joining in on Scream Factory's live stream Night of the Demons event on full moon Friday the 13th, hosting an all day Ray Har

Shock-O-Rama: Double Dose of a Lady-Fu by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(April 25, 2014)
Some films simply aren't strong enough to whirl on their own roundhouse kicking feet as standalone home releases. This isn't a scifi techno handicapper beam kick to the ribs of a downed Arena, nor the smashing of a comically large cognac snifter over the h

Shock-O-Rama: Strip Nude for Your Killer by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(March 12, 2014)
It may be impossible to find a film titled more aptly for discussion on Shock-O-Rama. As pleasantly resonant off of the tongue as it is a soothing balm to the tender tissue of the ear drums, this movie's American theatrical designation is the perfectly for

Shock-O-Rama: Voyage of the Rock Aliens by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(February 12, 2014)
As honesty is perhaps the best policy (or at the very least, a catchy platitude), I'll begin this Shock-O-Rama with a heaping helping of truth: the degree to which you will enjoy Voyage of the Rock Aliens depends entirely upon the company in which you view
