Nightlight DVD Review

Nightlight DVD Review

Found footage style films have become some of my least favorite type of films and despite the horror genre’s saturation with them, they do not seem to be going anywhere soon.  When done right, they can definitely add atmosphere.  Unfortunately too many of these are like NIGHTLIGHT, which relies solely on the gimmick to add [...]

E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL’s Dee Wallace: The CFQ Interview

THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL, but she had previously developed her genre chops in two landmark horror titles: Wes Craven’s THE HILLS HAVE EYES and Joe Dante’s THE HOWLING, [...]

Laserblast: What’s Wrong with Redbox Rentals

In an era that sees brick-and-mortar video rental stores resembling dinosaurs fated to extinction, the increasingly ubiquitous presence of self-serve Red Box locations in front of convenience stores and even inside some grocery stores is a good sign for those of us who do not want to wait for Netflix to ship us that latest [...]
