    Oculus, A Great Drive-in Movie

    Guest post by Billy Russell Going to the ol’ drive-in is still one of the most fun ways to experience a movie.

    Dario Argento’s Nightmare Fuel: the Surreal Horror of Suspiria

    *Guest Post by BILLY RUSSELL Much more so than many other “surreal” or “nightmarish” horrors, Suspiria truly captures the feeling of being trapped in a bad dream and being unable to awaken from it.

Held in lecture halls and universities, mummy unwrapping parties became morbid high brow academic ceremonies fusing the latest archeological discoveries of the time with the public’s own twisted love of the dead and grotesque.

Aliens, AI, Alex Jones, and the New World Order

Fermi Paradox be damned, our gut instinct is that there are many advanced extraterrestrial civilizations flourishing beyond our solar system. In a universe containing hundreds of billions of galaxies, each one containing hundreds of billions of stars, to believe otherwise is just plain odd. But it could take a while for us to meet ET. […]

The Future of Fear: Horror Movies In 50 years

We love horror movies. We also love futurism and overwrought speculation. With transhumanism and the Singularity entering the mainstream–much to the chagrin of its esoteric handlers–we found ourselves trying to imagine what horror movies would be like in 50 years. By then technology will have evolved to near incomprehensible levels and the entertainment industry will […]
