The Walking Dead: “Time for After”

Next week, The Walking Dead will air its mid-season finale. Whether it leaves us awestruck, or limps across the finish line remains to be seen, but with the (temporary) end looming, it’s time for a place-setting episode. I’ve griped about these in the past, in reviews of almost every show I’ve written about here. But they’re... Read More | Share it now!

The Walking Dead: “The Big Scary U”

Margaux rejoins me to talk about last night’s Negan-heavy episode of The Walking Dead.  Trevor: Am I losing my mind, or have the last two episodes of The Walking Dead been kinda good? Don’t get me wrong, both “The Big Scary U” and “Some Guy” have their issues, but they’re much better than early-season entries like “Monsters.”... Read More | Share it now!

If I’ve made one thing perfectly clear over the last few weeks, it’s that I have a dislike for certain things: season eight of The Walking Dead, and the character Ezekiel therein.

31 Days of Fright: Tucker and Dale vs. Evil

“What it looks like what happened is pretty nasty.” The unknown is scary. This is not a new, or even particularly trenchant, observation; it’s the bedrock of almost every horror film in recent memory. We have our families and our groups of friends, and we can pretty well predict how they’ll react to a given situation –... Read More | Share it now!

31 Days of Fright: The Hills Have Eyes (2006)

“Ain’t nothin’ to see in the desert.” It is so, so rare for a remake to be better than its source material (off the top of my head, I can think of only one, Zack Snyder’s 2004 Dawn of the Dead). Wes Craven’s 1977 The Hills Have Eyes was curiously sedate when it should have been grisly; that, coupled with the... Read More | Share it now!
