Back in 2010, I was approached to write a weekly column for Birth.Movies.Death. (then Badass Digest) about horror. It could be about anything genre-related - I had no guidelines, no restrictions, not even a minimum word count. And with this unlimited freedom and wealth of material to draw from, I opted to make my very first Collins' Crypt (formerly Terror Tuesday) a love letter to Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers. You can't ever accuse me of going off brand. Alas, the original article is kind of a mess now due to various site upgrades over the years, so I've reposted it below for your enjoyment. But before you get to that, I'd like to offer you a chance to win a pair of tickets to Screamfest's 30th anniversary screening happening on May 9th at the TCL Chinese in Hollywood! We have a huge Q&A assembled for the event, including Danielle Harris, director Dwight Little, and screenwriter Alan McElroy, so it should be a great time and more than make up for the fact that yes, … [Read more...] about Los Angeles: Win Tickets To See HALLOWEEN 4!
Halloween 6 full movie
6 minutes ago One of the key ways to make a successful sequel/reboot to a beloved franchise is to get as many people who were involved with the original attached to the new movie. We see this all the time on the TV side with reboots, as having the people who made the series so successful in the first place helps give the fans confidence in the new installment. The same is very much true for the new Halloween movie, which has series co-creator John Carpenter on board as an executive producer. Carpenter won't be directing, but he'll still have one other important job: composing the soundtrack. In addition to being the director of a ton of cult classic films from the '80s and '90s, John Carpenter is also a composer, having created or co-created the score for many of his own films. That includes Halloween, which might have the most iconic soundtrack of any of Carpenter's films. Fans have been wondering if Carpenter would return to write some music for the new Halloween and Jason Blum … [Read more...] about John Carpenter Is Scoring The Halloween Sequel, And All Is Right In The World

Almost as long as there has been cinema there have been horror movies. While the genre is often branded with the stigma of being low-brow, cheap, and only for hardcore fans of jump scares and gore, it is also responsible for some of the greatest films of all-time, and certainly many of our favorites fall somewhere along the horror spectrum. Just as there are trashy, forgettable, throwaway horror films every year, there are also those that that play upon our greatest fears to create tension, an ominous atmosphere, and to terrify us to our very core. The history genre is full of monsters, both human and otherwise, horrific events, and chilling scenarios that thrill us, scare us, keep us on the proverbial edge of our seats, and stick around to haunt our nightmares long after we leave the theater. The list that follows is Cinema Blend’s definitive, once-and-for-all comment on the greatest horror movies ever made, though we can’t help but wish there was room for 50 or 100 … [Read more...] about The 30 Best Horror Movies Of All Time
