(0)
October 27, 2017

We couldn’t let October go by without getting in one Halloween inspired show! So, here we are with a random, rambling episode about the movies we’ve watched this season; our trip to Rochester to see Fright Rags and watch Halloween on the big screen; and then we each pick some fun festive movie/TV related characters… Read More ›

Pet Peeve: Halloween Movies that Skimp on the Halloween

Some of the movies in this little list I like. Some I loathe. But all of them would be even better if they followed through on their Halloween setting. It bugs me a weird amount when movies have a character say it’s Halloween, but there are no visuals to back it up and give it… Read More ›

BP Podcast, Episode 29: “Hanging with Mr. Hooper: A Tobe Hooper Revisit”

To honor the late, great Tobe Hooper, we decide to watch a selection of Hooper films, including the original The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Eaten Alive, Salem’s Lot, The Funhouse, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, and Poltergeist!

‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ (1974): My First Time

As a young kid growing up in the 80s, my pipeline into the world of horror was the Fangoria/Gorezone collection that belonged to a kid who lived across the street from my grandmother. By the time I was old enough that my parents actually let me consume these movies, I had already memorized scenes upon… Read More ›

Reanimated Review: ‘Stag Night of the Dead’

On November 11, 2010, I posted my first ever review on our old blog. It was 2010’s Stag Night of the Dead, directed by Neil Jones, which we watched by way of a screener link. I felt like I should preserve it on our current site. I haven’t seen the film since, but you know…. Read More ›

‘Little Monsters’: My kid’s first horror movie

A little while ago, on a fortuitous whim, I watched the 1989 Savage/Mandel joint Little Monsters with our 5-year-old son, Milo. I have very fond, very warm memories of this weird little flick. It was a regular on my movie rotation line-up when I was a youngster, most likely from ages 7 to 12. And… Read More ›

“The Playground”: Milo and I made a movie

For the past few weeks, my 5-year-old Milo has wanted to “make a movie.” For fun, you know. And yesterday, we decided what the hell, let’s do it. So, we conceptualized, filmed, and edited the following short film – “The Playground” – on one hot Saturday afternoon. All we knew going into it was this… Read More ›

Music We Love: The Tunes of the ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ franchise

I wanted take a minute to state how much I appreciate the internet when it comes to the music from the movies we grew up watching. Pre-internet, say in the early 90s, there were not a ton of kids in my junior high who still cared about Nightmare on Elm Street or Freddy, and even… Read More ›
