Imaginarium Encore: Todd’s First time!
Due to some recording problems (not the fault of Scott this time),  this week’s Imaginarium can’t be posted, so instead we have this, very late, repeat of the first time Todd was on the show. This goes way back to March 9, 2015 and well worth a listen, or... Read more

Happy, Happy Halloween: Halloween Resurrection
No sequels are ever really necessary, and those that are equal to the original are usually as rare as hen’s teeth. Nowhere is this truer, and as applicable as it is with Halloween: Resurrection. I suppose it’s appropriate that director Rick Rosenthal, who helmed H2, also helms the last... Read more
Imaginarium 84: The Negan Effect
It’s Halloween! So drop your bed knobs and broomsticks and check out the Imaginarium Halloween Spooktacular!  Scott and Todd talk a bit about Scott’s Halloween retrospective, Scott gushes over the Turkish horror film Baskin, and then they get into The Walking Dead. All this and the premiere of a... Read more
One More Day ’til Halloween: Halloween: H20
Halloween: H20 is perhaps the strongest of the MM infused Halloween sequels. It also does something very smart, and pretends that 4-6 never happened, which is an amazing coincidence as most moviegoers did the same thing.  In the original script for H20, they do include them, including the death... Read more
3 More Days ’til Halloween: The Curse of Michael Meyers
Now, I don’t want to start any rumors, but this could be the film that killed Donald Pleasence. Sadly, our favorite Loomis passed on a few months before the movie was released-almost as if he knew something. That’s the sad news in regards to H6, the good news is... Read more
4 More Days ’til Halloween: Halloween 5: Revenge of Michael Meyers
How bad is Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Meyers? It made me seriously reconsider finishing this series. Even as bad as a couple of the Nightmare on Elm Street movies were, none made me want to quit. H5 made me want to dig up the rotting corpse of... Read more

5 More Days ‘til Halloween: Halloween IV: The Return of Michael Meyers
With the poor box office performance of H3, the producers decided to go back to the well, and brought back Michael Meyers and Dr. Loomis. Carpenter and Hill signed away their interest in the Halloween series, and it fell to Mousatapha Akkad to destroy the franchise.  Prior to that,... Read more

When is a sequel not a sequel? When it’s Halloween 3: Season of the Witch. As everyone knows by now, H3 is the only entry in the series that doesn’t feature Michael Meyers, or any events related to his hijinks (although we do get to see a glimpse of... Read more

A very Halloweeny StudioHEAD.

7 More Days ‘Til Halloween: Halloween 2
Halloween 2 is an exception to the rule of all sequels sucking. In fact, I think in many ways H2 is a better and-dare I say it-scarier film than the original. While director Rick Rosenthal has his own style, he doesn’t stray very far from what Carpenter did in... Read more
8 More days ’til Halloween: Halloween (1978)
This isn’t a review I expected to write. Well, I knew I would be writing it, but I hadn’t expected my opinion to change so radically.  Last year I reviewed all the Elm Street movies, and in thinking what to do for this Halloween, it seemed rather obvious that... Read more
Imaginarium 83: Music Of The Night

Another Halloween Reboot Emerges – Carpenter Involved
This might or might not be of value to somebody, considering Halloween is a series that just keeps going and going. Though I don’t think it has as many as Friday The Thirteenth on its shelf. Nevertheless the announcement of Malek Akkad, the son of Moustapha Akkad, who produced... Read more
Imaginarium 48: The Ego Card
On this week’s Imaginarium, Scott turns the table on himself with a rare interview (rare because no one really cares what he has to say!), where he talks about his writing, the anniversary of the supernaughts, his mentor T.M. Wright, and ebooks vs print.  Also, don’t miss the secret... Read more

RIP T.M. Wright: Remembering Terry
He may not have had the fame of Stephen King, but his contribution to the horror genre is every bit as important and lasting.  I don’t think anyone has contributed as much to the ghost story or surreal horror as T.M. Wright.   I first encountered Terry’s work when... Read more

Ash Vs. Evil Dead S01E01: “El Jefe” (Review/Recap)

“Ash Vs. Evil Dead is everything fans could possibly wish for, and then some. The fundamental ideas have not been watered down, and the pilot delivers buckets of gore, madcap humor in spades, and Bruce Campbell at his absolute peak.” – Mathias Folsted.

7 Days Of Freddy, Day 7: New Nightmare
I’ve never considered New Nightmare a true sequel, more like a lateral move from the first one. Craven is back as writer and director, simply chomping at the bit for a final crack at Freddy. While he had some nice things to say about some of the sequels, it’s... Read more
7 Days Of Freddy, Day 6: Freddy’s Dead
This is the way the world end: not with a bang but a whimper. T.S. Eliot   Good old Mr. Eliot must have seen Freddy’s Dead when he penned that classic line, for nothing seems to fit the final sequel (and I don’t consider A New Nightmare an actual... Read more

7 Days Of Freddy, Day 5: Dream Child
Dream Child is really a bit of an odd bird in the Nightmare series. It has ambitions, and attempts to address societal issues such as abortion, drunk driving, eating disorders, yet never quite succeeds. There’s a fair bit of ridiculousness in it, and while it continues with the “humor”... Read more
7 Days Of Freddy, Day 4: Dream Master
Renny Harlin did for the Nightmare series with Dream Master, what his Cutthroat Island did for pirate movies.  The fourth movie in the series is the worst of the bunch by a mile, and Renny Harlin needs to not make another movie. Ever.  To say I dislike Dream Master... Read more
7 Days of Freddy, Day 3: Dream Warriors
According to Heather Langenkamp and Robert Englund, Dream Warriors is the fan favorite of all the sequels and it’s easy to see why.  With a budget as big as the first two put together (admittedly though that’s still not much), and Wes Craven back as executive producer as well... Read more
7 Days of Freddy, Day 2: Freddy’s Revenge
There’s perhaps no installment in the nightmare franchise that has been talked about and analyzed more, than Freddy’s Revenge.  It’s been called the gayest horror movie ever made, and while I won’t dispute that, I think it’s also my favorite and possibly the best of the series (that will...

7 Days of Freddy, Day 1: A Nightmare on Elm Street

Crimson Peak (2015) Movie Review

“Crimson Peak is a tribute to an era of patience, back when people actually had faith in the art of visual poetry and graphic storytelling. It wasn’t just about constant release of exposition, it was about keeping the audience guessing until the very end, craving for more until they would nearly burst because of the tension.” – Mathias Folsted.

DePalma’s Way, The Selected Films of Brian DePalma: Carrie
There’s been enough ink spilled about Carrie to fill the buckets laden with the pig’s blood at the prom, that another article seems superfluous (a word I love to use whenever I can). Still, you can’t talk about Brian DePalma’s movies without mentioning Carrie. Based on Stephen King’s debut... Read more
Weekday Matinee 02: King Sized Tricks And Treats
It’s Bootober! That means Halloween is lurking in the alley waiting to pounce. Scott and Jerry talk about the movies that scared them the most, as well as: what Scott’s name was originally going to be; Why Jerry hates It, and why Jerry roasted Stephen King! All this and... Read more

Caption Contest 27: The Amityville Horror
Growing up on Long Island, and not very far from the actual house, The Amityville Horror was as much a part of my life as anything else. While I enjoyed the remake, the original will always be best because of Rod Steiger. He’s always been a favorite of mine... Read more
Caption Contest 26: The Fly
  What would a horror themed caption contest be without including something from David Cronenberg? I could go on about this movie, or you can read about it here, in my collection of Cronenberg essays!      Read more
Caption Contest 25: Needful Things
Needful Things may not be a great movie, hell maybe not even a good one-but it is a fun one. It’s perfectly cast and adheres pretty closely to the source material from Stephen King. A perfect Haslloween movie where the victims get all tricks and no treats. Read more

Caption Contest 24: The Blob
While the original Blob (with an amazingly young and handsome Steve McQueen)may not hold up as well as many movies half a century old, the remake does, and is still the roller coaster ride I remember. Read more
Caption Contest 23: Psycho 3
With a witty, creepy script from Charles Pogue, and some solid directing from Norman Bates himself, Psycho 3 is far better than it has any right to be. There’s some genuinely horrific scenes, all laced with a shot of dark humor. Perkins does what he does best, and shows... Read more
Caption Contest 22: The Car
The CAr is one of my guilty pleasures. A kind of rip off of Spielberg’s Duel, and a precursor to King’s Christine, The Car is at times kind of effective, but there’s some real corny stuff going on here as well. James Brolin does a great job as he... Read more
Caption Contest 21: A Nightmare on Elm Street
A Nightmare on Elm Street is, by far, my favorite horror franchise. In spite of Freddie becoming a one liner machine and diluting the originals terror, they’ve always been imaginative and entertaining. The original is still a pants-shitting experience for me, and Robert Englund is absolutely perfect.   Read more
Caption Contest 20: Alien
  Alien is one of the all time great horror movies. It gets everything right, and in a year that included such releases as The Brood, and The Amityville Horror, Alien rose to the top.  From the cast, to the writing, to the directing, Alien is lightning in a bottle,... Read more
Caption Contest 19: Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein
I may be in a distinct minority here, but I love Kenneth Branagh’s verrsion of Frankenstein. I love DeNiro’s monster, and is second only to Karloff in performance. Helena Bonham Carter though? Ugh… Read more
Caption Contest 18: The Shining
Love it or hate it (and I’m kind of in the latter group), The Shining tends to rank at the top of the Stephen King movie adaptations. To be fair, I was never a huge fan of the book either, but not ashamed to be in the minority. My... Read more
Caption Contest 17: Saw
Saw is one of the best horror flicks of the ’00s. Tension filled, bloody-yet doesn’t take itself so seriously. The sequels are another story, but for me Saw is the only one which matters. Read more
Caption Contest 16: Motel Hell
Motel Hell has to be one of the odder horror movies to come down the pike. While it has nothing on Japanese horror weirdness, it does have a certain charm all it’s own, as well as a wicked sense of humor. Remember: It takes all kinds of critters to... Read more

Caption Contest 15: Friday the 13th (1980)
The movie that seemingly started the slasher movie craze, is in reality not a very good movie. relying more on jump scares and effects than anything else, it’s place in horror history cannot be denied. While I don’t think it’s a great movie, I still find it very watchable,... Read more
Caption Contest 14: Nightbreed
  Today’s caption contest is from one of my favorite movies, Clive Barker’s Nightbreed. While not as good as Hellraiser, that may not be a fair comparison, as they’re really entirely different. David Cronenberg as the Doctor is simply chilling. An extended director’s cut is due out and I... Read more
Caption Contest 13: The Thing From Another World
  The lesser remembered version of the movie adaptations of John W. Campbell’s classic story “Who Goes There?”, this 1951 release is as creepy as the classic Carpenter version, and definitely worth watching. Read more
Caption Contest 12: The Stand
I’ve always liked the TV mini series of The Stand. While not great, it was enjoyable, and has one of the best opening credit scenes ever. Corin Nemec as Harold, is still a crap bit of casting, even though he does a great job. Read more
Caption Contest 11: Dracula
  Of all the classic Universal horror movies, Dracula is still my favorite. For me, I can’t think of anyone more synonymous with the role, than the Hungarian born Bela Lugosi. While it’s a bit slow by today’s standards, this 83(!) year old flick still delivers. Read more
Caption Contest 10: Cujo
    Stephen King movies can be lumped into two categories; Awesome and awful, there’s very little in between. I consider Cujo not only awesome but underrated. While it deviates from the book a bit-with much cut out, it retains the essence of the story, and is generally scary.... Read more
Caption Contest 9: Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2
We here at Supernaughts love Halloween! In fact we love it so damn much, that every CC through Halloween will be from our most watched horror flicks. Today’s is nowhere near the classic status of the original TCM, but it has its own quirky charm, and worth a watch. Read more
