Snapshot: "Dead Shadows" (2012)

"Dead Shadows" is a french film about a teen named Chris whose parents were brutally killed 11 years ago, on a day that Haley's comet could be seen from Earth. Now there's a new comet making an appearance and of course, as any good 80's throwback film would have it, the Earthlings are partying it up. But then Chris notices that people are starting to act weird and violent. Uh-oh.

Producer/Director David Cholewa says he was looking to :

American Horror Story: Halloween Part 2 (Episode 5)

Episode 5 of American Horror Story has been brought to us right after the recent news that the show has been renewed for a second season. This episode was definitely a wild ride and it has probably been my favorite episode so far. This week we've watched Ben and Vivien's relationship fall farther into the ground, we've seen a whole bunch of ghosts doing ghostly things, and we've got a lot of background on Tate and his relationship with Constance. Here's the recap:

Retro Clip: "Creepshow 2" (1987)

I love the Creepshow series, with my favorite short from them being in "Creepshow 2" The Raft features four college kids who decide to take an autumn swim at a secluded lake and are then terrorized by a hungry oil slick. They are trapped on a raft in the middle of the lake and unable to get away from the sludge like substance that's taking them out one by one. One of the things I really like about this movie is that there is no backstory regarding what the oil slick is or how it got there. I also love the ending.

American Horror Story: Halloween Part 1 (Episode 4)

Legend has it that Halloween night is the night the dead are able to walk the earth with the living. However, in the Harmon household, they don't really seem to need a special day or an invitation to do it. And so begins the first part of our Halloween episodes of "American Horror Story." In this episode we learn the backstory behind the last owners of the house, the fabulous and bickering couple Chad (Zachary Quinto) and Patrick (Teddy Sears), a major character dies, another rises from the dead and the gimp suit returns.

Retro Trailer: "Halloween: H20" (1998)

AMC Fearfest is in full swing and we are currently in the middle of the '4 Days of Halloween' marathon which is featuring the 1978 original "Halloween" movie and a big chunk of its sequels. Tonight AMC will be premiering "Halloween: H20" in which Jamie Lee Curtis reprises her role as Laurie Strode. The film is interesting in the sense that the storyline ignores movies 3 - 6 in the series and is considered a direct sequel to Halloween and Halloween 2. This time, it's 20 years later and Laurie has faked her own death to escape her psychotic brother.

A Horror Movie Starring You?

I was recently browsing the internet and came across this article on the NY Times Site about a mysterious website that recently popped up that uses your Facebook information to place you as the star/victim in a creepy online horror short. The site, entitled Take This Lollipop features a fun little video starring a man who's getting extremely pissed off while looking at an internet site... your Facebook page.

American Horror Story: Murder House (Episode 3)

This week's episode of "American Horror Story" brought us a lot of backstory regarding the original owners of the house, The Montgomery's, as well as the nature of the relationship between Moira and Constance. Although we learned a lot about the character's surrounding the house and more about the house as a character itself, i felt like we were lacking a lot of the present day action that the previous two episodes were so full of. That being said, I'm still enjoying myself quite a bit. So here's my top three points of interest from this week's episode:

Blackout Haunted House in NYC

Have you ever wanted to be the final girl/guy in your very own torture porn movie? Yeah, me neither but for those people who are sick of the typical ghosts and ghouls type of haunted house, the Blackout Haunted House in New York City may be for you. In the house you'll be handcuffed, bags will be placed over your head, you will be handled by the actors and you'll even be subject to water torture. And you'll have to go through it alone! Before going in, you must sign a waiver explaining the rules of the haunted house:

The Rules:
1. YOU MUST WALK THROUGH ALONE.

American Horror Story: Home Invasion (Episode 2)

The second episode of "American Horror Story" was chock full of further character development, a ton of questions of who's living and who's dead and a very "Strangers-esque" style home invasion mixed with a bit of cult like murder. Now I'm not going to go with scene for scene descriptions on this show because well, first of all that's kind of boring and second of all, I'm assuming if you're reading this then you saw the same thing I did. If you haven't watched episode two yet, TURN AWAY NOW!! There, now you've been warned.
