Tales From the Crypt

Anthology films have been a staple of horror for a long time and continue to be.

Halloween

Any conversation around the greatest horror films of all time will invariably include mention of 1978’s Hallowe’en. A lean, mean, straight razor of a film, this surprise underground hit launched the careers of Jamie Lee Curtis and John Carpenter and sculpted the template for the modern slasher film. What followed was a massive boom in […]
