It may be November, but Halloween still haunts us. And YOU, if you dare listen to The Final Chapter of the 18th Annual A-Z of Horror Festival!
It's a festival first! A guest host! As the Common Craig's sister, Average Amy, creeps out of that casket in the root cellar, to help us sink our fangs into the original mini-series adaptation of Stephen King's Salem's Lot (1979). Vampires, the Marsten House, and a lot of small town 70s drama.
If you can't manage to find something that offends you at least a little bit in this movie, you're even more disturbed than the Common Craig. Good for you. This is THE Troma movie. The original monster hero born out of toxic waste. The Toxic Avenger (1984)!
If you're going to make a run at following Scream during the 90s slasher resurgence, you'd better have a good gimmick. And some attractive, young, up-and-coming talent. Plus horror veterans like Danielle Harris, Brad Dourif and Robert Englund. Does it work? Or is Urban Legend (1998) as effective as Pop Rocks and soda?
A television is shipped to a house instead of an institute for studies of the occult. That may not sound like a problem, but when The Video Dead (1987) emerge from that TV, even when it's unplugged, your weekend is probably going to be ruined.
If you've ever wanted to take a course on skiing, you may have second thoughts after this one. I mean, you'll at least be very particular when choosing which instructors you spend time with. Because these three? They make me very uncomfortable. Just stay away from Wolf's Hole (1987).
And if you decide to make some porn in middle-of-nowhere Texas, please make sure that you know who you're renting that boarding house from. Things do not go well in Ti West's X (2022).
Just imagine being raised in seclusion in a cave until you're a teenager. And when you finally emerge, you know nothing of the world. When witchcraft is the base of your knowledge, learning what it means to be human may prove to be quite a struggle, but You Won't Be Alone (2022).
Movie parents always seem so freaked out about their kids having imaginary friends. But with Z (2019), at least there's a very valid reason for concern.
