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’

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

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

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.

Snyder, who himself … Continue reading How ‘Army of the Dead’ Carries on Romero’s Legacy – ScreenHub Entertainment
