A Gentleman's Guide to Sophisticated Horror

Critics and cinephiles often regard horror as both shallow and cheap. It can be infuriating to think that they dismiss our beloved genre as nothing more than fast thrills that make you want to vomit. The cinematic equivalent of a carnival ride. It has also been implied that these films are tailor-made for the teenage demographic, to be viewed only between passionate make-out sessions. While in adolescence they can be a great tool for such activity, these films are so much more than the “tilt-a-whirl” or “Netflix and chill” fodder. I subscribe to the belief that horror is an art...

A Horror Fiend Christmas

The holiday season is here again, and this time of year offers very little for the horror fiend in all of us. The TV guide reads like a laundry list of Made for television Christmas movies, starring dated celebrities that we didn’t give a shit about ten years ago, much less now. For those of us who have noted the fact that our seasonal depression begins simultaneously with the end of AMC Fear Fest, the weeks ahead can be a real bummer. In an effort to combat the symptoms of holiday over exposure, I decided to balance things out with...

Possession: Horror's Greatest Blank Check

I’m going to breeze right by the usual set of mea culpas here and just say that tentatively, I am back writing for the fine folks of the CCH Podcast in what I am praying manages to be a more regular fashion. What with the guys with microphones talking about The Exorcist, we figured it would be a good time for the guy with the word processor to weigh in on the topic of possession in pop culture.  I don’t think there is a culture in the entirety of history that hasn’t had some kind of evil spirit or demon in...

It Follows: The Battle of Concept V Execution

Hi everybody! I recently remembered that this sick-and-also-tight podcast has a blog, so I popped on over to check out what was happening. Then I saw the “M. Butler” byline and realized, oh shit I totally write those don’t I? Here’s where I insert a litany of excuses about why, but frankly, I’m sure none of you give a tin shit, so let’s just say that I was entertaining wealthy Saudi Arabian gentlemen on a boat and leave it at that. I’d like to use this re-entry to the world of writing on the internets to start what I hope might...

The Best Horror Movie of 2015 Wasn't A Movie

I spend a lot of time on this site lamenting the loss of the horror standards of old.  Being someone in his late 20’s, this is entirely expected as I enter my “rosy tinted nostalgia glasses/everything was better when I was younger and had no responsibilities” part of life.  But every now and again, there is a glimmer, ever so faint, of something that “gets it”, and my shriveled black heart begins to do the closest thing it can to going “pitter-patter” (more of a subdued squishing noise, really).  The second most recent time this happened was when I saw...
