Education is Power! Education is Freedom! Education is Evil! Huh? You may be an Apt Pupil getting ready for an after school Battle Royale in the Village of the Damned, but if you have Cooties, then TheFaculty won’t have a damn thing to do with you.
We take a close look at the foundation of education in horror from the teachers who protect us, to those who may do us in. And from the cool kids and the teacher’s pets, to the bullies and the wallflowers, we’ll let you know who goes into The Woods and gets Lost In the Dark. So pack your lunch, get on the bus, and get ready for one hell of a ride!
Director Lawrie Brewster and screenwriter Sarah Daly, the team behind Lord of Tears Joy, bring you their intriguing horror feature, The Black Gloves. This independent horror team discusses how the film came about from concept to post-production, why they chose to film this great looking period piece in black-and-white, and how they approach the horror genre.
And you can help support the post-production efforts for The Black Gloves on Kickstarter – and get some excellent perks in the process!
At just twenty-five, James Cullen Bressack has managed to rock the horror genre with a multitude of films from My Pure Joy to 13/13/13, and to his very latest, Bethany, about a woman who moves back into her childhood home…
James’ feature film career began at eighteen after Robert Rodriguez’s El Mariachi inspired him to make his own movie on a micro-budget. Listen in to learn about James’ upcoming films, his work with Zack Ward and Shannen Doherty, and why you should see his latest venture, Bethany, starring Stefanie Estes.
You may hate 9-to-5 drudgery, but some horror films truly showcase the workplace as a definitive occupational hazard.
We’ll take a look at The Belko Experiment, Resident Evil, Asylum Blackout and many more with occupational hazards from cooks, and miners, to innkeepers. Maybe you’ll finally appreciate where you’re employed a little more – or maybe you’ll feel frightened about what’s right around the corner besides your needling supervisor and his brown-nosed cronies.
Kent Harper‘s no slouch: He has six features on the way, and besides acting, he’s also a writer, producer, and director. Thankfully, he was able to take a break from his day to talk about his approach to acting, film, and life in general, as well as his experiences on the set of Surveillance, which he co-wrote with Jennifer Lynch. Horror fans may often see Kent Harper as a formidable force on-screen, but he’s so much more than that. Learn about the mind behind the man, and what’s up with his forthcoming films: Villainous, Deterioration, and A Blast of Sunlight Explodes.

The actor, director, musician, and family man, left behind a legacy of great films and cool performances from Near Dark to the incredible film, Frailty. Join us on a cinematic journey celebrating the work of the man who made “Game over!” one helluva catch phrase.
Get Out has captured the minds of many, and even non-horror fans are discussing the themes and message of Jordan Peele’s debut as writer/director. We’ll take a look at the entire film, which means one big time spoiler alert looms on the horizon. Has Get Outlived up to the hype? Maybe it has, maybe it’s one of the most socially conscientious films ever in the horror genre – or maybe it’s just another movie.
