The Comedy Of FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 2, HAUNTED MANSION, SILENT HILL, And More
This Friday marks the 40th anniversary of Friday the 13th Part 2. A commercial success, it would serve as the true introduction of Jason Voorhees, slasher extraordinaire. This is the first film in which adult Jason begins his cinematic hack-a-thon, one that has racked up over 160 kills across 10 films (parts 1 and 5 don’t count). And while the Jason we know today is a behemoth who can outwalk the Energizer Bunny, Part 2 showed us a character who was careful, thoughtful, and, hear me out, funny.

The Horrific Catharsis Of RESIDENT EVIL 3, The May Queen And MORE!
Let’s be honest, life kinda sucks right now. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the world to a grinding halt and we’re all stuck in our homes, albeit for the greater good. As a result, reports show that video game usage has increased dramatically since stay-at-home orders have been implemented nationwide.

Revisiting Tim Burton’s SLEEPY HOLLOW And MORE!
Fairy tales have long served as a moral guiding light for children. The works of The Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen, among others, have been cannibalized repeatedly throughout film history, each new adaptation attempting to outdo the last.
