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 24: “‘My Bloody Valentine’ and Other Vday Viewing Traditions”

Join us this week as we celebrate Valentine’s Day! We chat up the original ’81 slasher My Bloody Valentine, its worthy ’09 remake, and a bunch of other standard (and not) Valentine’s Day viewing traditions. Ahem, sexy thrillers. We also talk about recent movie watches — including a (former) blindspot – Society! Plus, Pump Up the Volume, Dreamcatcher (Terror Tweet)… Read More ›

BP Podcast, Episode 21: “A look back at ‘Silent Night Deadly Night 2’ & ‘Silent Night’ (2012)”

12 Days of Christmas #2 Happy holidays, friends! This week, we dive right into Christmas by chatting up a redemption viewing of Silent Night Deadly Night 2 (1987). We also rewatch the loose SNDN remake, Silent Night (2012), and discuss (is it still forgettable?). We also talk about recent movie viewings — including a lot of Thanksgiving and holiday flicks… Read More ›

Non-Halloween for a Fun Halloween

This is it, kiddies. Halloween is almost over — for some it already is. And according to my social media feelers, it looks like this year was hit or miss for Halloween spirit. It happens. Just blame the election. So before we close the season out with a super-duper spooky article tomorrow, let’s get generic for a… Read More ›

Redemption Viewing (Halloween Edition): ‘Satan’s Little Helper’

Third time’s a charm, yeah? About this time 10 years ago, we were young and and free (sans kids) — consuming any and all Halloween-themed movies/TV episodes we could get our hands on — for better or worse. This was when we unearthed Satan’s Little Helper, the 2004 Halloween night romp about an annoying little kid with… Read More ›

‘Halloween: Resurrection’ is my third favorite film in the franchise!

Halloween III is easily my favorite, followed closely by John Carpenter’s original masterpiece. For reasons I can’t fully explain, Resurrection is third in a franchise ranking. I don’t really know exactly why I have such affection for this movie…but I do. On paper, it sounds terrible. Busta Rhymes and Tyra Banks send a group of… Read More ›

BP Podcast, Episode 13: ‘Someone’s Watching Me’ & ‘The Toolbox Murders’ (1978, Birthday Edition)

Thirty-eight years ago, Johnny was born. And this week, we’re celebrating by taking a deep-dive look at two first-time watches from 1978: John Carpenter’s Someone’s Watching Me and cult fave The Toolbox Murders.

First Impressions: ‘Scream Queens’

Before diving into Scream Queens, let me just say that we have a spotty past with Ryan Murphy. The first few seasons of Glee were actually pretty delightful. And, as of right now, we’re 50/50 with American Horror Story — seasons one and three were good (although Coven‘s ending was incredibly disappointing); we watched only three episodes of Asylum before falling off; and then there’s Freakshow,… Read More ›

Review: Hatchet III (and kind of Hatchet II)

First thing’s first.  We adore the first Hatchet.  It contains all the appropriate elements for a modern day ‘slasher.’  Boobs, blood, humor and a killer with a name (Victor Crowley) played by Kane Hodder.  It’s awesome — and makes for a fun addition to the holiday horror calendar (you know, for Mardi Gras). When the… Read More ›
