In ‘Pursuit’ of ‘Horror Trivia’ – Two Ghoulish Games

As we enter the apex of the Halloween season, the abundance of horror-themed activities to keep us entertained is seemingly limitless. From haunted houses to creepy corn mazes to hair-raising hayrides, there’s plenty to keep our inner psycho sufficiently occupied. But if you’re looking for something a bit more subtle that can be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home, while still falling under the ‘scary’ realm, two game companies have your fright sensibilities...

‘Halloween’ Arrives Early in New York

While there’s been an abundance of buzz on the Halloween film series of late, the majority of it has been focused on the forthcoming David Gordon Green-helmed sequel hitting theaters October 2018. The attention isn’t surprising, with Jamie Lee Curtis set to reprise her iconic role as Laurie Strode, sister of the original boogeyman himself, Michael Myers, and the involvement, as ambiguous as it may currently be, of the man that started it all, John Carpenter....

‘Camp’ is Back in Session: ‘Sleepaway Camp’ Star, Trilogy Come to New York

Jason Voorhees. Michael Myers. Freddy Krueger. Angela Baker. Yes, Angela Baker. While some people might scoff at the idea of including her (him?) in the same breath with the horror icons of Friday the 13th, Halloween and A Nightmare on Elm Street, respectively, don’t tell that to those who were in attendance at the Sleepaway Camp Trilogy at the popular Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington, N.Y. on July 28. The event was organized by Retro Picture Show,...

John Carpenter to Release Debut Solo Album

Legendary horror director and composer, John Carpenter (Halloween, They Live), will release his first solo album, Lost Themes, on Brooklyn label Sacred Bones Records, February 3, 2015. The album, a collaboration with Cody Carpenter of the band Ludrium and Daniel Davies, who score I, Frankenstein, falls into Carpenter’s style of repetitive synth splices that reach some terrifically terrifying crescendos. The first track, “Vortex,” has been released along with a video set to clips from different...

Happily Halloween: The Damned at Irving Plaza

The last time The Damned played Irving Plaza was in 2011, part of their 35th anniversary tour. Opting to play a Halloween show in Anaheim, Calif. instead that year, it was only a matter of time before they would make their way back to New York for the special day. This time around, the punk legends even dedicated a five-night, east coast mini tour called Hallow’s East, centering around a Halloween show in NYC. Covered...

Dum Dum Girls Walk Dead on Halloween Eve

Halloween started early Thursday night. Bloody, smeared faces and gaping, flesh wounds on their body, Dee Dee, Jules, Sandy and Malia floated onstage as the undead at Brooklyn Bowl.  The Dum Dum Girls were fully zombified for Halloween Eve with guitarist Jules trickling wine down her chin for full horror effect. Dee Dee Penny was last to step on stage in nothing but a crochet crop top, black g-string and a sheer latex pencil-length skirt...

“Silent Hill Revelation 3D” Movie Review

Whether you are into the “Silent Hill” games or not, we were constantly reassured that “Silent Hill Revelation 3D” was closely adapted to the “Silent Hill” games – more specifically “Silent Hill 3”. Yet with those high hopes, I sit here a little conflicted. I’m not really sure how I stand on the movie and I’m hoping that I’ll be able to convey why I’m not swayed either way towards this film. By swaying, I...
