Here’s a Hitchcock appreciation month treat! We have a guest post from Paracinema issue 16 contributor Derek Godin. By the time 1954 rolled around, Alfred Hitchcock was no stranger to wringing suspense out of high concept premises. To wit: he i
As many of you may have noticed, we’ve had a few service interruptions this past week. Don’t fret though, because we are alive and kicking. A good way to stay informed is to follow us on twitter or sign up for our mailing list. Enough wit

At Austin Wizard World we were very fortunate to run into a spectacularly talented artist named Jim Ferguson. Not only is Jim’s art amazingly detailed and simply gorgeous, the pieces are interpretations of scenes from our favorite films. I know

Here’s a picture from the Evil Dead remake. I don’t really care about this movie. But a lot of people seem to (good and bad). Do you? Speaking of asking questions… Did anyone see The Girl? I have not, no. But I am happy it’s a
While watching Beyond the Black Rainbow a curious quote from a totally unrelated film* got stuck in my head. “Do you know what it’s like to be unmade?” After viewing BtBR twice, my answer is a resounding “yes.” The word
Hello there. Thanks for stopping by for some links. Here are some I’ve collected. I swear I’m going to read 50 Shades of Grey. I mean, I kind of have to. I read Twilight, and watched that movie. It’s just that I need to know about s
