The Night of a Thousand Cats

I’m not a cat person. In fact, I’m slightly allergic to them. Cats are somehow able to sense this. When I come into a house with cats, they come to me. They brush up against my pant leg guaranteeing that I’m going to take a part of them home with me. Disgusting creatures. I don’t…

The Island of Dr. Moreau

There are certain stories that filmmakers seem to return to over and over again. One such story is HG Wells’ The Island of Dr. Moreau.

The Dark

Just a few weeks ago we lost a big name in 70’s and 80’s horror movies…Tobe Hooper. He had a unique career, filled with great films, some stinkers, and some underrated gems. He also left a great mystery. No matter who comes forward to claim they know the truth, the question will always be out…
