The Haunted House

****

Not to be confused with the 1913 film of the same name, the film I’m discussing is the less obscure 1921 film by Buster Keaton. In it, Keaton plays a bank teller who finds his usual routine of workplace hijinks and pining for the bank president’s daughter interrupted by a bank robbery. Things go from …

They usually covered major industry events, …

Ghoul Mourning, Maniacs ! The fine folks at Gravedigger’s Local  have enlisted me to terrorize, I mean, entertain you as we look at Don Ho ‘s Brain. Wait a second, there’s a smudge of jam here on the screen … I meant Donovan ‘s Brain. (Note to self…no more jam filled donuts near the screen.) …

I (don’t) Hate Tim Burton

It’s unfortunate but I think I don’t hate Tim Burton. I used to. Sorta. Hate is a strong word. But from 2005 up to last year, I could loathe Burton like everyone else, pointing out the obvious cracks in his career, bemoaning the “unoriginal thoughts” and “repetitive casting” of the same troupe of actors. I …

Popcorn Horror http://www.PopcornHorror.com Available for Android and iPhone. Admittedly, I don’t have a lot of horror apps on my phone. And that might not be my fault. I use a Galaxy SII with the Android OS, whose app store is slightly anemic compared to the robust iPhone App store, but each platform has an abundant …

Joss is Less or some stupid title.

I don’t like the work of Joss Whedon because I think his storytelling relies far too much on the complex, over-reaching ideas/ arcs than focusing on the basic principles. I think he values being clever more than being good. Further research into Cabin In The Woods ultimately sank a prior post I had previously written, …

Name That Film (Please)

Every horror fan has at least one movie they have hazy memories of, but can’t remember the title. I have had several over the years, but I eventually managed to use Google-Fu to identify all but one of them. Every possible attempt I’ve made to identify it has failed, so I hope you can help …
