The sudden death of actor Bill Paxton has stunned his fans, and left the world a far less artistic place to reside. Known for his roles in ALiens, Near Dark, Twister and Apollo 13, for me it’s hisa turn in his directorial debut Frailty that I’ll remember his most... Read more

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
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
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
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
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

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
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
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

In April of 2015, my Weekday Matinee co host Jerry Janda sent me a script to read. This was right after he had been on the Imaginarium and I had gushed like a schoolgirl over how much I had liked Painkiller. I remember it took me awhile to get... Read more

Is the horror thriller with Ethan Hawke and Emma Watson worth a watch?
This episode of the Imaginarium is dedicated to my cat Odetta, who passed from this world on March 2nd. You’re greatly missed.

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
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
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
A review of Lucio Fulci’s “The Black Cat” (1981)- from the perspective of a black cat!
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
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

The lesson we can take away from Wade Radford’s second foray into horror is, if you go to an audition and there’s plastic tarp on the floor, run-don’t walk, run! Had poor Julie Farrow heeded that advice, she never would have run into the problems she did. Fluid... Read more

It’s chock full of tidbits, humor, and an honest assessment of today’s... Read more
Of all the sub genres in horror, the revenge theme has to be at the top as the most overused plotline of the past decade or so. It’s not that it’s inherently bad, but how can you make it stand out and stand up to classics like I Spit on... Read more

This amusing horror oddity from 1968 is populated by such horror icons as Boris Karloff, Christopher Lee and Barbara Steele, who appears as a witch with green skin and a hat sporting horns, which makes her the uncrowned queen of all cosplay girls. Read more
Confession time: I had a blast watching this goofy remake of the horror classic from 1974. Of course it does not live up to the seminal original, but it is very entertaining on its own and worth checking out if you have a weakness for absurd slasher movies. Read more
Welcome to the second chapter of my series, in which I will take you on a journey through the depths of Asian cinema. Devil Fetus (Mo Tai) from 1983 directed by Hung-Chuen Lau Devil Fetus is another almost otherworldly weird effort of the Hong Kong horror film industry. It’s... Read more
