THE OLD DARK HOUSE (1932) - Starburst Magazine

The bona fides of the 1932 film The Old Dark House should be enough to recommend it. Directed by James Whale, fresh off the success of the previous year’s Frankenstein, The Old Dark House features the star of Whale’s previous film, Boris Karloff, alongside Gloria Stuart, Charles Laughton, and Raymond Massey, among others. It’s a … Continued

Films From the Void on ‘Mosquito’ at Cinepunx

mosquito-bug
Mosquito is one of those films which I missed as a kid, and finding this in a video store closeout sale was me taking a bit of a chance, and man, did it ever pay off. This flick is fun as hell — definitely in the same vein as 1989’s The Dead Next Door, in that it’s gross, dumb, and acted with more enthusiasm than skill. However, much like that Midwestern diamond in the rough, Mosquito is just such a gem that it’s a damn shame more people aren’t aware of it.

What follows is a list of the most-readable and interesting books any self-respecting horror fan should have on their shelf.
