Coulrophobic CLOWN Comes to Blu-ray/DVD Producer Eli Roth and director Jon Watts bring the killer clown horror

As scared of clowns as some people already are, what happens when you put on a costume and can’t take it off? Therein lies the trouble for our poor protagonist Kent (Andy Powers). What starts as a lark for his son Jack’s (Christian Distefano) birthday party, after the clown they hired cancels, turns into a David Cronenbergian nightmare. Kent’s concerned, loving, and pregnant wife Meg (Laura Allen) now gets to put the pieces together after Kent can’t take off the Clown costume and it starts to transform him into some kind of child-murdering demon. The only person who seems to be able to help them is the possibly crazy Karlsson (Peter Stormare) who knows way more about the costume than anyone should, but may also know the key to helping Meg save Kent.

The Twisted Career of Rope Strangler Harvey Glatman "Lonely Hearts" killer preyed on young models

Harvey Glatman was born in December of 1927 to a Jewish family in the Bronx, New York, but he was raised in Colorado. From an early age, Glatman exhibited some very odd behavior. For instance, at the age of 12, his parents noticed he had a red, swollen neck. He then described an activity he engaged in while in the bathtub: placing a rope around his neck, running it through the tub drain, and pulling it tight. His parents recall him saying that he achieved “some kind of sexual pleasure” from the act. At this revelation, his mother promptly took him to see the family doctor… who told her that Harvey would, “grow out of it.”

HIDDEN – The Duffer Brothers Movie That Paved the Way to STRANGER THINGS Post-apocalyptic horror/thriller is emotionally gripping with a madly clever twist

Stranger Things, the retro scfi/mystery series on Netflix, is the hit of the 2016 summer season, generating buzz and discussion galore, reinvigorating the career of Winona Ryder, and bringing writer/directors the Duffer Brothers to prominence. Among other things the eight-episode show is a spot-on compendium of ’80s popular culture with clever homages to Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, John Carpenter, Stephen King, and many others. Young (born 1984), twin (Matt and Ross) upstarts, the Duffer Brothers seem to have come out of nowhere, but of course they didn’t. The Duffer Brothers began making films in 3rd grade, and not long after they graduated from film school, they had written and signed on to direct virus-apocalypse horror/thriller HIdden for Warner Brothers. Hidden cleverly and with deep empathy takes the familiar zombie apocalypse survivor scenario and flips it on its head, calling into question all of our usual preconceptions about good guys, bad guys and the ethics of survival.

The Blue Lady of Indiana’s Haunted Story Inn Icy blue eyes and the smell of cherry tobacco

If you were to drive along South State Road in Nashville, Indiana, and pass the Story Inn, you probably wouldn’t give it a second look. With its rustic appearance, the small building looks like an antiques shop. But there is a special room at the Story Inn. Just above the general store, it has three windows, a private deck overlooking a garden, a queen-sized bed, and a large bathroom with a clawfoot tub. It’s also haunted by a specter known as the Blue Lady.

Is THE WITCH a Horror Film? Or is the stunning "New England folktale" too arty?

Robert Eggers’ “New England folktale” The Witch is the most highly regarded horror film in years. It is so highly regarded that some critics who dismiss horror as mere shock and exploitation place The Witch outside the genre due to its thought-provoking artfulness. Ironically, on the opposite end of the spectrum, some horror fanatics, red of tooth and claw, also dispute the film’s horror bona fides, seeing its slow-burn moody virtues as pretentious and dull.

Psychological Profile of “Murder Castle” Killer H.H. Holmes What made this dapper turn-of-the-century killing machine tick?

As an experienced forensic psychologist who has come into contact with hundreds of inmates and read evaluations of thousands more, I can count the others I’ve seen that are the likes of H.H. Holmes on one hand. As much as he was terrible, he was unique in that he was psychopathic, extremely intelligent, charismatic enough to fool most others, creative (various M.O.s), and prolific. This is rarely, if ever, seen in real life. My only conclusion is that people like Holmes are either exceedingly rare, or simply never get caught.

Hulu Series of Stephen King’s “11.22.63” Now on DVD/Blu-ray Can time traveler stop the JFK assassination?

Recently released on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD is 11.22.63, a Hulu original miniseries in which a man goes back in time to try to prevent the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Based on the novel of the same name by horror master Stephen King, produced by the great J.J. Abrams, and written by the terrific Bridget Carpenter (Friday Night Lights), 11.22.63 touches on a number of moral concepts as the characters struggle with how much they should try to change time, and as time fights back. It’s an intriguing premise, though one surprisingly unevenly executed, given the talent involved.
