Okay, so sometimes I like to pick a movie that is just kinda goofy. Maybe it didn’t have the biggest budget. Maybe it has its fair share of flaws. But what I love about Beyond The Gates is that it has such a good fanboy heart, that you can’t help but have a joyful time … Continue reading 10/12/17 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #12 – Beyond The Gates.
Time for another one of my guilty pleasures. Actually, I take that back. I don’t think I have to call it guilty, because this movie rocks. The 1988 Blob is an updated remake of The Blob from 1958 starring badass Steve McQueen. This time around Kevin Dillon takes over that role. Yeah, I know Johnny … Continue reading 10/29/16 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #29 – The Blob (1988).
Here’s another gem that came out of nowhere for me. It's such an amazing feeling when I hear absolutely nothing about a movie, yet notice one of my favorite actors in it, check it out blindly, and I’m completely wowed by it. That’s exactly what happened here. I Am Not a Serial Killer is a little … Continue reading 10/26/16 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #26 – I Am Not a Serial Killer.
Every once in a while a movie comes out that is SO niche and SO insane that it blows me away how it even got made. Luckily for me the insane niche that this movie tackles just happens to be one of my all time favorite subjects. I'm talking about Italian giallo cinema. The Editor … Continue reading 10/25/16 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #25 – The Editor.
Now for a movie that came out of nowhere. It’s time for the Jeff Dixon award of “movie I thought was going to be terrible that ended up being fantastic.” And the award goes to… Unfriended. I know many of you are probably thinking, “Wait, isn’t that the Skype horror movie? Seriously? That looked like … Continue reading 10/2/16 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #2 – Unfriended.
And today’s Halloween pick is the other one of those “save the special ones for Halloween every year” picks. I told you I couldn’t decide between two films, so I was ending the year on two no-brainers. Yesterday I gave you the incomparable classic Night of the Living Dead (1968). Today, I give you the … Continue reading 10/31/15 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #31 – The Evil Dead (1981).
DEATHGASM!!!! Holy lord Deathgasm. I don’t even know where to start. I think my friend Brendan said it best when he told me, “If you, Jeff Dixon, saw this movie when you were 12 years old, it would be your favorite movie ever.” And you know what? He’s right on point. This is 12 year … Continue reading 10/29/15 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #29 – Deathgasm.
Okay, you want brutal? I’ll give you brutal… More brutal than you can even imagine. Today is for the hardcore.

NOTE: I always have my first few posts pre-written up the previous weeks in order to help me get a head start on this process every year. Knowing that my post on Demons was actually written up more than a week ago, imagine my shock/surprise when I saw an insanely similar post on io9 from … Continue reading 10/3/15 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #3 – Demons (1985).
Some of you may be surprised that I've never put a single Friday the 13th movie on these lists until now. And now that I have, why did I skip right over the first entry, and go right with Part 2? Well, let me put it into perspective. The Friday the 13th series to me … Continue reading 10/2/13 – 2013 OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #2 – Friday the 13th: Part 2
Wrong Turn is one of those movies that doesn’t reinvent the wheel, at all, but for some reason it just sticks. I mean, they’re on Wrong Turn 5 now. Say what you want, but whenever a film gets to part 5, they’re doing something right. Creepy, deformed, cannibalistic hillbillies are kind of like the lesser … Continue reading 10/20/12 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #20 – Wrong Turn.
In honor of Eli Roth’s amazing horror palace, The Goretorium, freshly opening in Las Vegas, I have to pay my respect and put Hostel on this list. I know this is a movie that a lot of non-gore people love to bash (along with the Saw films), calling it “torture-porn” (a phrase I despise), but … Continue reading 10/6/12 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #6 – Hostel.
