Halloween IV – The Blond Mask

While pointing out continuity errors can be amusing, I don’t want to see this collection devolve into pointing out errant boom mics or awkward jump cuts.  I love to nitpick as much as the next guy, but not all bloopers … Continue reading

Friday the 13th Part V – Cat Abuse

False alarm jump scares are pretty much par for the course with slasher movies.  I’m not a huge fan but, when done effectively, they can keep an audience on its toes.  There seems to be quite a finite number of … Continue reading

Texas Chainsaw Massacre III – Dead Armadillo

It’s interesting that most horror fans I know are also among the biggest softies around when it comes to animals.  I’m not even talking Italian cannibal level of violence (I’ve never met anyone who finds that anything but repulsive), I’m … Continue reading

Friday the 13th Part 2 – Moonlight Swim

There are a few milestones in life that most people never forget – graduations, weddings, births, and even first kisses.  I’ve gone through all of those (yeah, that’s right – I kissed a girl!).  There’s another milestone that most of … Continue reading

Dawn of the Dead – Bigger Bread

I know it might be sort of contrary to everything that Dawn of the Dead really stands for, but I can’t help fantasize how awesome it would be to have the complete run of a fully stocked shopping mall. Fleeting … Continue reading

Halloween IV – Jamie’s Mother

We all get laughed at, especially as kids.  It’s a hard line to draw between what’s all in good fun and what is hurtful and damaging.  Little kids seem to love it and will often go to absurd lengths just … Continue reading

Freddy’s Dead – Looking Young

I’m not sure when that moment is between when we are kids trying to seem older and when we become adults hoping we can still pass for 5 or 10 years younger.  We always want to look like we’re in … Continue reading

Sleepaway Camp II – The Green Pool

I’m not an outdoors-y person at all.  I do love camping though, and I’m pretty sure this comes from my complete adoration of 80s camp set slasher movies.  The more a campground looks like something I saw in Friday the … Continue reading

Dawn of the Dead – Marching Zombie

I’ve heard George Romero say that he doesn’t like to give large groups of extras explicit directions on how to walk like zombies because they’ll all do the same thing.  Makes sense, choreographed zombies would probably look like the Thriller … Continue reading

Friday the 13th Part VI – Jason’s Motive

I’m always wary when a sequel takes it as its mission to explain away any sense of mystery that is prevalent in a movie.  The part of Halloween that completely strikes a nerve with me is that Michael stalks Laurie … Continue reading
