Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

I know I usually summarize the film’s plot before diving into my review, but it seems unnecessary this time given how everyone knows the basic story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. So much so that the story’s the original twist ending has become the selling point: that Dr. Jekyll transforms Mr. Hyde due to …

Record Store Day 2014

This year’s Record Store Day sponsors are Red Bull, Red Eye, Universal, and WB records (along with others.)

Doin’ it for the Lulz: Charlie Short and Omegle

I still hate the term ‘creepypasta.’ But some of this internet-urban-legend-horror has produced a couple of stars – Laughing Jack, Jeff the Killer, Unwanted House Guest. There even was an actual movie made with an honest-to-god monster, Smiley. So though the name is stupid as fuck, it’s actually producing some horror for the ADHD-minds of …
