[Podcast] The Dark Half (1993) – Episode 21 – Decades of Horror 1990s

“Don’t fuck with me cock-knocker.” George Stark (Timothy Hutton) has a way with words. Much like his doppleganger Thad Beaumont (also Hutton). It’s a game of duality in The Dark Half, a film about a pseudonym brought to life. As well as addiction, paranoia and fame. Did we mention this is based on a Stephen King book? Bet you never would have guessed. There are plenty of allusions to King’s work and time as an alcoholic […]

[Podcast] Christine (1983) – Episode 110 – Decades of Horror 1980s

“Whoa, whoa. You better watch what you say about my car. She’s real sensitive.” Arnie Cunningham (Keith Gordon) is rather protective of his 1957 Plymouth Fury named Christine. He worked hard to restore it, pretty much rebuilding it from the ground up. Arnie doesn’t appreciate when people mince words in front of her. Or worse, lay an unprovoked finger on her person. Then again, Arnie doesn’t need to do a thing. Christine speaks for herself. And her words […]

The Black Saint’s Ten Worst Horror Films Of 2016

Other films, which were both critical and box office triumphs also flourished in 2016. Don’t Breathe, Lights Out, and The Conjuring 2 were very sizable hits and kept audiences glued to their seats.
