In 1975 we became terrified of the water when Steven Spielberg's (E.T.: The Extraterrestrial) Jaws hit movie theaters.  Let's face it… who can forget that huge mouth with all those teeth coming out of the water as the now iconic John Williams' score played in the background.  Then in 1999 we were once again reminded why it wasn't s...

Horror film originality was and is a hard thing to come by. The genre is replete with derivative, and often times, unmemorable dreck. Once in a blue moon, we see filmmakers attempt to push the envelope and try something new. The Chiodo brothers managed to do just that in 1988 with the fan favorite, Killer Klowns from Outer Space.In case you have be... Read More
