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! We also chat up a bunch of recent movie viewings (Logan, Killer Rack, The Monster Squad and more)! We also… Read More ›

‘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 ›

‘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 ›

BP Podcast, Episode 27: “‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ revisit, parts 1-4”

It’s been almost two months, but we’re back! And we’re here to talk about A Nightmare on Elm Street – in part 1 of our 2-parter NOES revisit. So, join us as we look back on the ’84 original through The Dream Master. We also talk about recent movie viewings (Little Monsters, William Castle’s The Tingler, WONDER… Read More ›

Teenage Frankenstein: Alice in the 80s (Alice Cooper Vol. 2)

Admittedly, I have a soft spot for Alice’s ’86 to ’91 era. I discovered the Coop by way of the ubiquitous “Poison” video during the heyday of MTV. Alice became sort of a family obsession, shared between myself, my brother, my sister and my mother. I would acquire his entire studio output, but those few… Read More ›

(Late) Spring Break Giveaway 2017!

So, it’s a tad later than we had wished, but our Spring Break Giveaway is finally here! This year’s theme? CREATURE MOVIES! The crowning jewel of this prize back is original JAWS artwork by Kayla Kearse. No home is complete without some shark flair. You know this. And the rest is totally neat-o creature filler… Read More ›

BP Podcast, Episode 26: “A Couple of ‘Chainsaw’ Revisits”

After a little time off, we’re back! And for this episode, we revisit two random-ass franchise movies: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation (1994) and Texas Chainsaw 3D (2013). One we didn’t dig when we first watched it and one we didn’t remember a damn thing about. And the re-viewing results are interesting! We also pay our respects… Read More ›

Virgin Fangs: My First Viewing of Lugosi’s ‘Dracula’

Watching the original Dracula for the first time in 2017 feels a bit absurd. But that’s the way it is. I’d never seen the movie before. Although when you put together every famous scene and still involving Bela Lugosi’s Dracula, I may as well have seen the whole film in pieces. One of the biggest… Read More ›
