‘Halloween Kills’ Is A Mixture Of Tricks and Treats – ScreenHub Entertainment

Director David Gordon Green continues his revamped Halloween series with this brutal follow up to the 2018 sequel. Halloween Kills opens moments after the previous film ends, with the heroes recuperating in the local hospital before learning The Shape is still at large.

Creepshow Season 1: The Best Segments – ScreenHub Entertainment

When it comes to the most underrated horror franchises of all time, Creepshow ranks near the top of the list. A creation of horror author Stephen King and zombie master George A. Romero, Creepshow was a tribute to classic horror comics such as Tales from the Crypt and Tales of Terror. With its unique comic-inspired visual style and a deliberately hammy delivery, Creepshow relished in … Continue reading Creepshow Season 1: The Best Segments – ScreenHub Entertainment

Sweet & Sour Nightmares: Race and Exploitation in the Original ‘Candyman’

Horror stories began as fables meant to warn us of life’s dangers, or a means to confront that which scares us most. As a modern fable, 1992’s Candyman is among the most effective. What at first seems to be a straightforward supernatural slasher film instead manages to weave its thrills with a powerful dose of social commentary dealing with themes of poverty, classism and racism … Continue reading Sweet & Sour Nightmares: Race and Exploitation in the Original ‘Candyman’

Bodycount Bingo: A ‘Halloween Kills’ Deadpool – ScreenHub Entertainment

When starting a slasher film, most of the time you can bet the majority of the cast will be dead by the end. Halloween Kills appears to be continuing that tradition with a count that will leave previous entries in the dust. While it’s not uncommon to see most of the cast wind up as examples for the effects artist’s demo reel, what sets Halloween … Continue reading Bodycount Bingo: A ‘Halloween Kills’ Deadpool – ScreenHub Entertainment

Any Revival of ‘Friday the 13th’ Should Focus On The Tragedy of Jason Voorhees – ScreenHub Entertainment

Even the most charitable opinions of the Friday the 13th series write it off as an enjoyable camp with little substance. I don’t fault the series for this as Friday the 13th never aspired to be anything more than straightforward genre fun. In many ways, it has already exceeded that goal, still going strong after 40 years even with its relatively simple formula. I’m a … Continue reading Any Revival of ‘Friday the 13th’ Should Focus On The Tragedy of Jason Voorhees – ScreenHub Entertainment

Why ‘Ghostbusters’ Was A Horror Movie – ScreenHub Entertainment

Since Ghostbusters was released over 30 years ago, many — including its original creators — have tried to recapture its spirit (pun intended) in sequels, remakes and other forms of media such as comics to video games. While many of these enjoyed success, they didn’t quite reach the heights of the original. Just why is this? The answer is as simple as it is unexpected. … Continue reading Why ‘Ghostbusters’ Was A Horror Movie – ScreenHub Entertainment

How ‘Jurassic Park’ Respects Death – ScreenHub Entertainment

We recently wrote about the horror roots of Jurassic Park and I wanted to expand upon that idea by diving into something else that’s unique to the first film in this dino franchise. That of course is how Steven Spielberg’s 1993 original film respects and dives into death, while subsequent sequels, including and especially the Jurassic World films, all but disregard this important factor. Classic … Continue reading How ‘Jurassic Park’ Respects Death – ScreenHub Entertainment

5 Foreign Language Shows to Check Out on Netflix – Screenhub Entertainment

Netflix seems to be opening up more and more people to watching shows that require subtitles (though this is probably also thanks to more general recognition of films such as Parasite winning awards that usually just have a side category for ‘foreign language film’ and don’t even include them in the discussion for ‘best picture’). Due to this slight change in demand and increased curiosity, … Continue reading 5 Foreign Language Shows to Check Out on Netflix – Screenhub Entertainment

The Horror Roots of ‘Jurassic Park’ – ScreenHub Entertainment

Horror is often the last thing most people think of when discussing Spielberg’s Jurassic Park. As a director, Spielberg has a reputation for shying away from that which is more dark and sinister, but this reputation isn’t entirely earned. Though not without its share of whimsy and wonder, Steven Spielberg still displays a real mean streak with Jurassic Park that recalls his earlier, rough around … Continue reading The Horror Roots of ‘Jurassic Park’ – ScreenHub Entertainment
