I'll keep it short since the movie left me with very little impression. The graphic novel qualifies as my favorite comic of all time. Number one with a bullet. That said, I liked the result of the film. It wasn't bad and it wasn't great. With the exception of Silk Spectre 2, I thought the cast was d...

Damn. I didn't expect this. I was so not interested in this movie that I didn't even realize it was out already. Now I may have to check it out. I'm with you. I've been seeing the hype machine on Twitter but between all the Dread Central types tweeting about how awesome it was AND Wes Craven, himse...

The Nightmare remake moving ahead now. They even have a director but I'm at a loss to recall their name. After the weekend take for Friday, they're probably fast-tracking Nightmare to cash in even harder.

Please vote for me at the Rondos

Cinema Suicide was nominated for best horror blog in this year's Rondo Hatton Classic Horror awards and I'll tell you what, I'd really appreciate it if you dropped by their site and cast your vote in my favor.

I actually REALLY liked the new Friday. I didn't buy the hype, I went in with what I thought were reasonable expectations: horny, stoned teenagers will be hacked to pieces by a cunning, nigh-unstoppable killer in a mask and I wound up getting it in the end. I've always regarded these movies like see...

I gotta tell ya. I had a really strange year. Aside from the Box Office hits that have made everybody's best of '08 list, I didn't see jack last year. I loved The Dark Knight and Iron Man equal amounts for entirely different reasons. Just about everything I saw in 2008 was on DVD since Cinema Suicid...

A while back, when I was trying to book some movies around here, I had to deal with the Paramount Archives when inquiring about the Friday the 13th movies. Trust me. If they have any lost footage socked away in their vaults, they don't know it's there. The archives are managed by one woman and only ...

Thanks to everyone who dropped by the site and took (or tried to take) the survey. We got some good data. Unfortunately, no one from Horrornews won the drawing. It was some guy in North Carolina who found us through Wikipedia.

Shit! I have to talk to that guy about making available some international options for visitors. He's complaining that we're not getting the response that he expected but this might be a reason. We get a majority of our hits from the states but plenty of people visit from around the world.

Hey y'all. In an effort to tune our website, we have this market analyst harvesting visitor data from a survey.

If only they could find a way to ditch some of these character names from the 60's. Gwyneth Paltrow looks dynamite in this movie and she's a particularly capable character and not just some villain-bait but I can't take a character seriously when she's named Pepper Potts.
