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’

What Happened To The Modern Iteration of 3D Cinema? – ScreenHub Entertainment

Three-dimensional movies have been a thing for almost as long as cinema has existed. It has taken on various forms throughout the decades, from stroboscopic animation in the late 19th century to the first 3D film shown to an audience in 1922, The Power of Love. Many of you may even remember the green and red anaglyph glasses that use to be needed to experience … Continue reading What Happened To The Modern Iteration of 3D Cinema? – 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

Has ‘Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood’ Improved With Age? – ScreenHub Entertainment

I liked Quentin Tarantino’s ninth movie, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood quite a bit when it came out. It made my top ten of the year, clocking in at number eight. Yet despite this, I didn’t leave the cinema loving the movie. I thought it was on the lower end of Tarantino’s filmography. Yet there was something different with this movie than anything that … Continue reading Has ‘Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood’ Improved With Age? – ScreenHub Entertainment

Did Shannon Lee Misunderstand Bruce Lee’s Fight Scene in ‘Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood’? – ScreenHub Entertainment

Update: Quentin Tarantino recently spoke to Joe Rogan about his most recent feature film, Once Upon A Time…in Hollywood, right as the film’s novelization (also penned by Tarantino) hit store shelves. Tarantino didn’t hold any punches in his justification for Bruce Lee’s behaviour in the scene and the reply is a little, well, Tarantino. But while the director says that Bruce Lee would have totally … Continue reading Did Shannon Lee Misunderstand Bruce Lee’s Fight Scene in ‘Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood’? – ScreenHub Entertainment

The Potential and Concern Over The ‘Master and Commander’ Prequel – ScreenHub Entertainment

Early in June 2021, 20th Century Studios announced that they would be producing a prequel to the critically acclaimed (and often criminally underappreciated) film Master and Commander: Far Side of the World. The film is being written by A Monster Calls scribe Patrick Ness and will take place before the events of the Russell Crowe film, meaning that a new cast will likely take to … Continue reading The Potential and Concern Over The ‘Master and Commander’ Prequel – 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

How ‘Army of the Dead’ Carries on Romero’s Legacy – ScreenHub Entertainment

When it comes to zombies, those shambling flesh eaters that infest the annals of pop culture horror, few names are as influential as George A. Romero. The man who pioneered the entire zombie genre, Romero’s legacy is a powerful testimony to just how rich with potential his ideas were, and that potential is still felt in Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead. Snyder, who himself … Continue reading How ‘Army of the Dead’ Carries on Romero’s Legacy – ScreenHub Entertainment
