If you aren’t familiar with Mike Dougherty and his incredible film 'Trick ‘r Treat', a tribute to the magic of Halloween, do not let this month end before you rectify that oversight. 'Trick ‘r Treat' is an anthology film in the tradition of (read every bit as good as) 'Creepshow'. Since 'Trick ‘r Treat' was unjustly shelved…
Boy oh boy do I LOVE this holiday! I look forward to it every year and start getting all giddy like a schoolgirl when September begins winding down. Even as a child, I preferred Halloween over Christmas. Television channels play horror movies round the clock, stores put horror movies on sale for dirty cheap (thank you Best Buy for taking all my money last week), and suddenly everyone around you is a horror fan. I have so much fun with Halloween. I even like the weather around this time. Chilly… Continue

I know I posted this sometime ago, but I thought I post this movie with vimeo.com, which has better quality. So this is a student film that I have directed. It's nearly two minutes long and I would like to thank you for taking the time to watch it. I hope you enjoy :).
The first part doesn't have audio, which was a technical difficulty.…
(Note: Just to reiterate, this is just a rant, there are no flashy pictures or anything to hold your interests, I just had to say what I had to say as a movie watcher.)
What do I have to say about a genre I have all but given up watching movies from? The horror movie has been stripped of it's name, I am personally in favor of renaming it "bloody pulp" or "gibs galore". Where is the horror anymore? What kind of movie watching society have we devolved into that all we want in a "scary"… Continue
This is a blog I posted on another site I belong to back when the movie was in the theatres, I thought I would share it with the Spill community since it is so great here. Please leave your feedback, even if you do not agree with my thoughts.
I saw The Strangers over the weekend and I have to start out by saying this was a movie that truly prided itself on the build up of terror. Most of the "horror" movies that we have be inundated with lately have…Continue
