I love horror movies, and I have since I was young. My favorite genre is the zombie genre, but it has completely been overdone in the last few years. I'm not a big fan of the horror movie formula, and I love it when a director turns it on its head. Please follow me on twitter (@_trapjaw_) and like me on facebook (scaretissuetrapjaw) for updates and to be immediately informed of new posts/projects.

The Shape of Water is Good… But Great?

The Shape of Water (2017)

As a horror fan, I am often questioned on my taste in horror.  To some, watching the horrors of the genre is unfathomable.  Sure, horror holds quite a few subsets that leave fans divided as to what makes a good horror movie.  But for the most part, we tend to …

Annabelle: Creation – Why Didn’t I Like It?

Annabelle Creation Poster

I love the Capitol Theatre in Cleveland.  I guess it’s because I’ve always read about how awesome it is to see throwback movies at the New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles.  The lobby is ancient and lacks the bright neon colors today’s plazas sport.  The bathrooms show the almost 100 years of …

Get Out – Let’s Talk about Race…

Get Out (2017)

Jordan Peele’s new movie Get Out is going to be difficult to review without discussing race, racial division, and how we treat each other in general.  As Peele managed to navigate the landscape quite brilliantly, I may not. That’s not coming from ignorance.  It’s coming from….ignorance (but without the stank I guess). …

Dead West: Road Trips & Serial Killers

Dead West (2016)

In this age of GPS locators, NSA surveillance, and cameras everywhere, I’m surprised that serial killers still can operate today.  Think about it:  If you ran into somebody without a past, no cell phone, and sticking to side roads when they drove while paying for everything in cash, you KNOW that …

ST Talks Clowntown Brian Nagel,CA Signing 10/15

ClownTown (2016)

Clowns. You love them.  You hate them.  You love to hate.  Strangely enough, they’re popping up all over the horror scene this year (Rob Zombie’s 31, Clown).  They’re popping up in real life.  Police all over the nation are warning people not to dress as clowns this Halloween because there are reports …

Blair Witch (2016) – Expanding on the Legend

Blair Witch (2016) Final Poster

There have been very few horror movies in my life that captured my imagination like The Blair Witch Project.  The marketing of the film in the early days of the internet didn’t hurt either.  It’s website depicted the events as real and rehashed a simple plot line we read often for …

Top 8 Hidden Horror Rooms

The Disappointments Room (2016)

Who could forget the famous Treehouse of Terror featuring Bart Simpson’s evil twin brother Hugo?  Or how the A Nightmare on Elm Street series featured not one but two secret rooms that Freddy hid his secrets? With the release of The Disappointments Room today, I got to thinking more and more about hidden rooms in horror …

Mitte, Snipes Team Up in The Recall

The Recall Poster

Being off the grid for vacation has its advantages.  Missing an alien invasion might be one of those. The Recall has just began shooting (starring Breaking Bad’s RJ Mitte and Wesley Snipes) yesterday in Canada.  Little details are known about the film outside the premise, but our friends at the Minds Eye Entertainment did share …
