Last year, I teamed up with the fine people at PartnersHub and Universal to give away a prize pack inspired by The Purge. This year, I get to do it again.

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth has been dropping little bits of knowledge here and there the past few months. Yesterday, we got some specifics from creator Ed McMillen himself.
For those unaware, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is a 16 bit reimagining of the breakout indie hit The Binding of Isaac. Both games are Legend of Zelda-inspired dungeon crawlers about Isaac, a young boy whose super religious mother believes God has instructed her to sacrifice him. He escapes into her basement of horrors and must fight his way down and out. It features procedurally-generated levels and a roguelike style to make each playthrough a unique experience.
This is not a drill. Do not adjust your dial. Everything is going to be okay.
Guillermo del Toro has officially announced that Pacific Rim will be taking over the world. The beautifully shot, wildly entertaining, and kick-ass female character-starring kaiju v. mecha film is getting a whole lot of new content in the next few years.
I had to break my trend of reviewing the weekly theme film for the Cinefessions Summer Screams Challenge this week. I just don’t see eXistenZ as a horror film.
Now Curse of the Cat People. That’s a great horror film. Such nuance. Such life. Such beauty. Such a terrifying recitation of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”
Horror Thursday: Curse of the Cat People
15 years ago, an unexplained disaster hit Japan, wiping out a nuclear reactor and killing Joe Brody’s wife Elle. Now, in 2014, his son Ford is called to Japan to claim him from police custody. Joe has convinced himself that he can prove the disaster was not an earthquake if he breaks into the quarantine zone surrounding the disabled reactor. Ford humors him, only to discover that scientists have known for years that Joe’s theories about giant creatures and echolocation are correct.
Godzilla, the fifth attempt to reboot the giant monster series from Japan for an American audience, thankfully succeeds as a Godzilla film. The focus is not placed on the monster himself but on the people from all walks of civilian, science, and military life trying to find a solution to the rampage of an inexplicable beast.
My new review is up over at GIZORAMA. It’s the mini-sequel to Electronic Super Joy, one of the most entertaining and frustrating games I’ve ever played all the way through. The sequel is actually harder, but the significantly shorter length makes it a whole lot more manageable.
Electronic Super Joy: Groove City Review
As part of the 3rd Annual Cinefessions Summer Screams Challenge, I’ve spent the past two days watching all of the films in the Hellraiser franchise. I’ve been obsessed with this series since seeing the trailers for Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth when I was seven years old and have only grown to love the universe and Clive Barker’s expanded works since.
However, because I so disliked Hellraiser III, I never really paid attention to the six subsequent sequels released straight to video. I’ve seen bits and pieces of most of them, but not the whole way through while actually paying attention.
This time, I paid attention. Oh, goodness, how I paid attention.
