It Follows: The Battle of Concept V Execution

Hi everybody! I recently remembered that this sick-and-also-tight podcast has a blog, so I popped on over to check out what was happening. Then I saw the “M. Butler” byline and realized, oh shit I totally write those don’t I? Here’s where I insert a litany of excuses about why, but frankly, I’m sure none of you give a tin shit, so let’s just say that I was entertaining wealthy Saudi Arabian gentlemen on a boat and leave it at that. I’d like to use this re-entry to the world of writing on the internets to start what I hope might...

The Best Horror Movie of 2015 Wasn't A Movie

I spend a lot of time on this site lamenting the loss of the horror standards of old.  Being someone in his late 20’s, this is entirely expected as I enter my “rosy tinted nostalgia glasses/everything was better when I was younger and had no responsibilities” part of life.  But every now and again, there is a glimmer, ever so faint, of something that “gets it”, and my shriveled black heart begins to do the closest thing it can to going “pitter-patter” (more of a subdued squishing noise, really).  The second most recent time this happened was when I saw...

Why Don't We Have Proper Villains Anymore?

When I was a kid, I was fascinated with Friday the 13th. Specifically, I was fascinated with its central character, Jason Voorhees (unless you’re talking about the first movie, where Jason only appears right at the end). There wasn’t much to it. I was but a boy and thought that the hockey mask and machete combo was just rad as hell. The thing is, I wasn’t actually allowed to watch those movies while I had that little obsession. I just saw the movies in video stores, read the descriptions, looked at the pictures and thought to my little self, “this...

Found Footage Sucks, But It Doesn't Have To

Today, I am going to try an experiment: I am going to try my damnedest to argue in favor of something that I personally hate. Why am I doing this, you ask? Partly because fuck you, that's why, but partly because even though I hate the current iteration, I believe that with the right tweaks, what I'm talking about could be the last bastion of the elements that make classic horror movies what they are in our collective esteem. In case the title didn't give it away, today, we'll be talking about found footage. Regular visitors to the site may...

Are We Done With Torture Porn Yet?

Sometimes I feel like I'm at a bit of a disadvantage when I write these posts, as I haven't seen a proper horror flick in years. The last thing I saw that even came close was Crimson Peak, and that turned out to be a Victorian soap opera briefly featuring the mere mention of the concept of ghosts, so I don't count that shit. The main reason I haven't seen a proper horror flick since before I finished college is that they always fell into three categories, none of which interested me. There was that brief period where everything was a...
