Plot vs. Gore…Can We Not Have Both?

I was watching a terrifying movie the other day and I made a realization.  I will not name movies here because I do not want to throw anyone under the bus, but I realized it feels as though gore and plot have become mutually exclusive.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I love gore.  I love […]

More Hannibal? Don’t Hold Your Breath

More Hannibal?  Who wants it?  I know that I do.  Yes, season 3 ended in a fairly satisfying way, but movieplot.com just released an interview with Hugh Dancy who plays Will Graham in the ground breaking series and basically, don’t get your hopes up for new episodes any time soon. “My feeling is that, knock […]

The Little Mermaid – Pain, Love, and Death

Years ago, when I was in school, the entirety of students were shuffled into the gym for a long-forgotten reason, sat down on the hard, wooden floor and “The Little Mermaid” was projected for us all to watch.  I think that my favorite part of this Disney version was the singing seagull who walloped through the […]

Krampus: The Christmas Demon

It’s been in vogue the past couple of years to address Santa’s counterpart, Krampus.  Cartoon appearances, a few movies (one of which was a major motion picture), t-shirts and sweaters, various other media are all filling up with this Christmas Demon.  But, where did he come from?  Why did he disappear? And why is he […]
