What’s Your Favorite Scary Movie? How About Your State’s Favorite?

Have you ever wondered what horror film is your state’s favorite? Me neither…until the fine folks over at Streaming Observer gathered the data to show us what is every state’s favorite! Don’t believe me? How did they do it, you ask? Well…science, of course.

According to their website:

USAopoloy Releases “Trivial Pursuit: Horror Movie Edition”

I haven’t played Trivial Pursuit in years but it looks like I’ll be taking another crack at it soon enough as the folks at USAopoly have released a “Horror Movie Edition” which I managed to snag today. While not like the classic version of the game that I grew up with (there’s no game board or dozens of multi-colored pie pieces to either lose or step on like legos), the game still calls upon that part of your brain that stores (mostly) useless knowledge; this time in the form of horror films. read more read more

New Trailer for ‘Halloween’ has Arrived

We’re just six weeks away from the release of Blumhouse’s new Halloween. Directed by David Gordon Green and written by him, Jeff Fradley and Danny McBride, Halloween is a direct sequel to the original 1978 John Carpenter classic. Disregarding all sequels, this latest Halloween takes place 40 years since the events of the 1978 film and finds a “Sarah Connor”-ish Laurie Strode preparing for an end-of-the-world-style showdown with her former attacker, and best-friend slayer, Michael Myers. read more read more
