Who is Willy Wonka REALLY??

Ok, let me start by saying that I love Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.  I always have and I always will.  HOWEVER, that being said, I’m pretty sure that it’s a horror movie in disguise.  And he and his Oompa Loompas may or may not be murderers.  What the hell is an Oompa Loompa anyway?????

TV

The Haunting of Hill House

If you have a Netflix account, you absolutely must watch the series “The Haunting of Hill House.” When I say this is one of the best TV shows I have ever seen, I’m not exaggerating. It’s rare that a show will impact me in such a way that I can talk about it as much as I do with “Hill House.”

Directors

Eli Roth

Eli Roth is one of those people who is known and loved by horror fans everywhere.  He has produced some of the best loved horror movies like Cabin Fever, Hostel  and Grindhouse.  Eli’s fascination with horror started when he was around 8…

True Crime

The Lake Bodom Murders

There is constant speculation that The Lake Bodom Murders, Finland’s most famous unsolved murders, was the inspiration for the original Friday the 13th.  The movie’s producers say no.  Other than the fact that both involved camping teenagers and murder, there aren’t really any other similarities, but once a rumor like that gets started, there’s no stopping it.

Cults

The Family

Two decades of fraud, child abuse, illegal substance use, and prepping for the end of times were brought to an end only after one member escaped and told the police all about “The Family.” And oh, there was a lot to tell.

Are We Our Own Worst Nightmare??

Picture this: you’re laying in bed and you hear a sound. Is it just the house settling? Or is it a ghost? A demon? Ax murderer, zombie, serial killer, vampire… a CLOWN? Relax… it was just the cat coming up the stairs. The human mind is so creative that it can create a sense of impending doom out of an ordinary sound. But most times, the truth is, there’s nothing there.

PLEASE Hug Me, I’m Scared

I’ve seen all kinds of videos from every corner of the world wide web. But there’s one series of Youtube videos that stuck with me from the first time I saw it many years ago: the “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared” series.
