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.

If you’re a gamer, you know about Resident Evil or Biohazard if you prefer the Japanese title. One of the many games to give birth to the survival horror genre, Resident Evil had it all. Scares, intense action and a story that was so involving, players felt as though they had stumbled into a real nightmare. Sony Pictures brought audiences into that world in 2002, but managed to screw up the story along the way.

Season 5 is here, and it gets weird. But not even a really good kind of weird. The kind of weird where Ryan Murphy is just throwing everything he has into a giant pot and hope it tastes good.

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.

“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.

“There once was a house, a bright happy home, something bad happened, now it sits all alone.” In 1999, Dreamworks brought audiences back to Hill House for another spooky romp. Based on the classic film “The Haunting” from 1963 and the book The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson, what many believe to be one of the spookiest haunted house stories ever told, This remake wanted to bring the chills to life for a whole new generation of audiences. Did it succeed? How well does the film stand up 16 Years later?

The Halloween season isn’t always about blood and gore, and scary surprises, sometimes we all want some good fun the whole family can enjoy, and that’s where today’s review comes in. The first Hotel Transylvania was a funny and playfully spooky romp into Transylvania and a hotel for monsters, but how well does the premise work in the sequel?
