We have all had the thoughts of being something more than what we are. Some want to fly, some want super strength, some want to shape shift, and so on and so forth. So, we decided that this week we would talk about, in essence, shape shifting by way of the lycanthrope. Most notable for the werewolf, which is the bulk of the topic, although there are other shape shifting beings out there. So be wary of the full moon and enjoy the sh...

As time goes on we sometimes forget things, like birthdays, phone numbers, songs, and so on. Along with that are the movies that seem to slip our minds. This week we discuss what we refer to as Forgotten Fright, which are movies that we feel may be in that list of movies that people may have forgotten about. Movies that if you were to see on the TV as you flip through the channels, or browse through the VOD listings and think, "...

When we think about horror stories, we are usually drawn to the characters of the story. Whether it is the hero of the story or even in the case of Horror, the monster, creature, killer, etc. But one of the things that gets overlooked is where the story takes place. Could you imagine "Friday the 13th" if it were set in a bowling alley instead of a camp? Probably not. So this week we discuss locations in horror stories, how ...

Join us this week as we delve into the world of possibilities. There are times when a book, a movie, a game, or a TV series comes along and we ponder about what it would be like if it were changed into another format (i.e. a movie converted into a longer more in depth TV series, or a novel that has yet to be made into a series or movie). So, this week we discuss some of our choices that we could envision changing into something tha...
