Last month I reported that the uber-documentary, CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES: THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF FRIDAY THE 13TH, was going to be released on August 27, 2013 (here). Well unfortunately we’re gonna have to wait a little longer. It seems due to the scope of the documentary, more time was needed in post-production. I can live … Read more
ALIEN FROM AREA 51: THE ALIEN AUTOPSY FOOTAGE REVEALED is a documentary that aims to shine a light on the quagmire of the Alien Autopsy footage that flooded the airwaves in 1995. Fox got some huge ratings off the whole thing and the public was left with a very one-sided view of the event. This … Read more
Here’s another pre-Halloween treat for all you Dracula and vampire lovers. DRACULA: THE VAMPIRE AND THE VOIVODE is an extremely comprehensive documentary that delves into the lives of Bram Stoker and the 15th century ruler (or Voivode) of Wallachia, Vlad the Impaler. And when I say ‘comprehensive,’ I mean COM-PRE-HEN-SIVE!! Writer, director, and cameraman Michael … Read more

That’s right; last night I watched an advanced DVD copy of Chiller Channel’s first original special … and it doesn’t star Dean Cain and … Read more
The horror documentary is a difficult one to pull off successfully. There’s times when those being interviewed come off sounding arrogant (like in HIS NAME WAS JASON; see my review) and sometimes the material isn’t really examined in enough detail (again, HIS NAME WAS JASON). On the other hand there are times when a horror … Read more
Directed by Daniel Farrands, the writer, director, and producer of NEVER SLEEP AGAIN, HIS NAME WAS JASON is a horror documentary that explores the evolution of both the character of Jason and of the entire FRIDAY THE 13th franchise. Farrands gets pretty comprehensive as far as the interviews go. Interviewed are all the actors who’ve … Read more
