“Oh my God, Lenny. You scared the hell out of me.”


“Another bad night of sleep again I guess?”


“Okay Lenny, listen I’m more than happy to have you living back here at the family home with me and I want nothing more than to give you whatever…

Shudder / The George A. Romero Foundation

Today I came to the realization that all of my grandparents are dead.

People who I thought would be with me my entire life, people who I loved, but people whose presence I took for granted, even when I did my best to fight that instinct. …

Everyone is frightened of something irrational.

If you ever meet someone who tells you they don’t scare easily or nothing makes them uneasy, then they’re either a liar or they aren’t looking hard enough. We all have our fears, our paranoid nightmares, the things that make our hearts race when…

Lucky / Shudder

Humanity is constantly evolving every day, and as our world changes more and more rapidly every day, the way we tell and perceive stories also changes. Some mediums and genres seem more resistant or baffled by change than others, who embrace the change head-on. So far, I think the genre…

Coming 2 America / Amazon Studios / Paramount Pictures

I Care A Lot / Netflix

Let’s be honest, satire is probably the hardest genre to truly pull off successfully. Most masterclass examples of satire are either untouchable classics like Dr. Strangelove or fantastic pieces of work that satirized their subject so well that they tragically became enveloped into the very organism they were poking fun…

Honestly, what does one even begin to say about the year 2020? If you had an even marginally good time, chances are, you’re a monster. Absolutely nothing was left unscathed by the wildfire that was last year, including moviegoing. Our entire concept of moviegoing has been warped. I’m desperate to…

“Time to go,” said the impossibly tall man standing in the corner of Lawrence’s dressing room. Lawrence leaned back in his chair and stared down the unwelcome guest, twirling his mustache.

“I’m afraid I don’t know what you’re talking about.” Lawrence did his best to never take his eyes off…
