This will be a quick one, but I finally watched the first couple episodes of Game Show Network’s newest horror game show, and thought I’d let you know if it was worth watching or not.

Don’t you love movies that make you grip the edge of your seat? Leave you breathless sometimes? You do? Okay, one more question. Don’t you hate it when a movie falls apart at the end? Me too.

Remakes have a lot to live up to. They need to capture the feel of the original, but instead revitalize it for the audience they are intended for. Not very often do we see a remake done by the director of the original, and that’s what we got in this 2004 remake of Ju-On: The Grudge. Did Takashi dumb it down too much for an American audience?

If by now, you haven’t heard of Five Nights at Freddy’s, you’ve been living under a rock. It hit YouTube by storm, and the fandom took off running with wild theories about Freddy and his friends. In this 4th (and “Final”) game, the tables are turned, and you are no longer at Fazbear’s pizza…you’re a kid at home, and Fred bear and friends are the monsters you hear breathing outside your door.

Film/TV Review: Stephen King’s Rose Red (2002) HorrorAthon 3

“Come in Sir, you’ve been expected.” Stephen King doesn’t have a very good reputation when it comes to miniseries based on his stories. They usually start off strong, and end awfully. So to our surprise, Rose Red stays pretty consistent through out the whole thing. Yes, I am aware it’s a TV series, but I consider it a film when it’s put together.

When the first Insidious came out in theaters, James Wan proved that just because a horror film is PG-13, doesn’t mean it’s rubbish. It was intensely frightening and it created a series of films that took audiences into a hellish descent, into a ghostly work called The Further. This time around, Leigh Wannell (James Wan’s friend and a star from Saw and Insidious) took over the director’s chair for this prequel chapter in the franchise. How does it stack up?

Didn’t expect to see a documentary at this year’s HorrorAthon did you? Well, it should feel pretty obvious why I just had to watch it right? Imagine you’re in bed at night, when all of a sudden, your body goes tingly and limp. Your body can’t move, and your eyes are wide open. You’re hearing frightening sounds, and then from the corner of your eye, that’s when you start seeing the shadows. This isn’t a horror movie, this is real, and it happens to people every day. It’s called Sleep Paralysis and The Nightmare brings together 8 people who suffer from it’s effects, and recreates their stories in chilling detail. How effective is it? Note: If you suffer from sleep paralysis, I’ve heard that this film may be triggering, keep that in mind as you read the review, and/or watch this film for yourself.
