“Well we think of life like the seasons.”

When people think of horror movies they often think about jump scares, lots of blood, gore, spooky creatures, ghosts, or…*shudder* children. But some horror movies opt for a different approach where it’s horror of the mind, slowly peeling away at your psyche as you watch it, such as on this week’s episode of Talkin’ Tuong. So join Tuong and Castle Rockettes’s Spencer Dunn as they take a look at the bright and disturbing Swedish folk horror/cultish nightmare that is 2019’s Midsommar.

Happy Halloween!

Did… did that door just move? 

Paranormal Activity did the unthinkable: made just about everyone afraid of their own homes. In a stroke of genius, the series strips the haunted house story to its core and makes it relatable.  Everybody knows the feeling of hearing footsteps at night, or maybe seeing some lights flickering, or portals that transport you to the early 1990s– wait, what? The Paranormal Activity series starts firmly planted on a tripod but quickly eschews that for secret covens and time travelling camcorders. Yep.

John ‘The Jigsaw Killer’ Kramer has done the unthinkable: somehow made the Saw movies the most popular horror franchise of the mid-00s. Swapping a coherent plot for buckets of blood and gore, the Saw series leans on its shock value to distract from its overly convoluted and under-written continuity. “Want to play a game?” No. Now take your pig mask and get out of here.
