The scariest movies ever nominated for Academy Awards

With Halloween being this coming weekend, I wanted to have a little fun here and talk about scary movies and Oscar. As a general rule, the Academy doesn’t go for horror, but they have occasionally slipped on in here and there. This year, there’s a fringe contender in It Follows[...]

The Best of the first three quarters of 2015

Believe it or not, but today is actually the last day of August, which means tomorrow stars September and the final quarter of the year. With this changing of the calendar, I wanted to again give you a bit of a look inside my mind. In short, this will be[...]

One of the best parts of my job is when I can watch a film or a performance that I’ve championed actually catch on with audiences. This year, a slightly unexpected one has occurred in the form of horror movie It Follows. Even though it had played the Cannes Film[...]

“It Follows” is the best horror film in years and the rare one worthy of awards

When it comes to the Academy, the genre the least seem to embrace (give or take animation, though that at least has its own category) is horror. With the exception of The Silence of the Lambs, no fright flick has been nominated for Best Picture, and while that’s not going[...]
