Black Friday Chopping List: Video Games

Black Friday is more than just the day after Thanksgiving or an unofficial holiday begging for its own 80s style slasher. No, Black Friday is a huge boon for retailers. In fact, the day got it’s name (supposedly) for being when stores would go from profits “in the red” to “in the black”. Over the years, it’s also become a massive cluster-fuck of rabid shoppers and disgruntled teenage employees who’d … [Read more...]

Halloween Drive-thru: Outrageous Fast Food Promotions

I’m sure most Halloween-heads are fully aware of Burger King’s A1 Halloween Whopper from a couple years ago. It featured a sesame bun that was supposedly black in hue due to A1 sauce being baked right into the bread. However, widespread rumors of some who ate it experiencing dark-green colored stool for days after leads one to believe perhaps the bun was black from added colorings. Just a hunch. As unappetizing as it might have … [Read more...]

Enter, two Australian filmmakers and a low budget indie that would launch one the most lucrative horror franchises in history – Saw. The original … [Read more...]

‘F’ This! – The Most Hated Films in Horror

Recently Darren Aronofsky’s mother! was slapped with an extremely rare “F” CinemaScore from audiences. Despite the film’s initial marketing, mother! is anything but a typical Satanic Panic/hysterical woman thriller. Granted, those familiar with Aronofsky’s work should have been fully aware of what they were getting themselves into as they entered the theater. Nonetheless, it appears “general audiences” … [Read more...]
