Found Footage Sucks, But It Doesn't Have To

Today, I am going to try an experiment: I am going to try my damnedest to argue in favor of something that I personally hate. Why am I doing this, you ask? Partly because fuck you, that's why, but partly because even though I hate the current iteration, I believe that with the right tweaks, what I'm talking about could be the last bastion of the elements that make classic horror movies what they are in our collective esteem. In case the title didn't give it away, today, we'll be talking about found footage. Regular visitors to the site may...

Are We Done With Torture Porn Yet?

Sometimes I feel like I'm at a bit of a disadvantage when I write these posts, as I haven't seen a proper horror flick in years. The last thing I saw that even came close was Crimson Peak, and that turned out to be a Victorian soap opera briefly featuring the mere mention of the concept of ghosts, so I don't count that shit. The main reason I haven't seen a proper horror flick since before I finished college is that they always fell into three categories, none of which interested me. There was that brief period where everything was a...

Where Have All The Boobies Gone?

Let's get a couple of disclaimers out of the way here: women are not objects, they are woefully underrepresented in TV and cinema, and we all really need to seriously examine the way that they are portrayed and the opportunities available to them in modern media. Women are human beings deserving of our respect and admiration, and to think otherwise is simply wrong-headed. Now, let's talk about titties. Specifically, let's talk about a notable lack of titties in our horror movies today. This used to be a dependable staple of the genre, which can actually be traced (as so many nudity based...

Evil Dead Vs Ash Vs Evil Dead

I still remember seeing the Evil Dead movies for the first time. I was a little late to the game, not seeing them until sometime around 2003, but those three movies have been an irremovable staple in my life ever since. I ran out and bought them on DVD as soon as my teenage self had scrounged the pennies to do so, and even bought Army of Darkness twice when I stumbled upon a copy of the (at the time, very rare) director's cut at an Amoeba Music in San Francisco. These movies played a rather large part in making me the man-child I...

Vidja Games, Horror, and My Personal Vendetta

Well, it took me a whole two posts before I figured out a way to finagle in some talk about video games. Specifically, we're going to talk about video game movies! This is a topic that tends to raise the ire of gamers and moviegoers alike, because well, they pretty much always suck. Super Mario Brothers was so bad that Nintendo swore off making their properties in to movies forever, and John Leguizamo and Bob Hoskins had to be completely plastered just to get through filming it. Street Fighter was hampered by Raul Julia's battle with cancer ruining the shooting schedule (most scenes were...
