Abattoir (2016) – Review Plus an Interview with Dayton Callie

Abattoir (2016) hit a few film festivals earlier this year, and is scheduled to be released in select theaters, VOD, and digital copy starting this Friday. What exactly is an abattoir? Well, it’s a slaughterhouse, but more on that in a minute. I GOT TO INTERVIEW DAYTON CALLIE!!! Sons of Anarchy, Deadwood, and just all around nice guy. Now, you can ask The Husband, I’m not the type of person to “fan girl” (Is that a verb now? I don’t know, but I’m gonna use it as one.). But, whenRead More


The Walking Dead – The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be (S07E01)

It’s getting real up in here, folks. Let’s be clear, this is less of a review and more of an opinion piece – my opinion on why the show went where it did, and why it had to be done. The season 7 premiere of AMC’s The Walking Dead drew in over 17 million viewer. Are you one of the handful of people that haven’t seen the episode yet? If so, what the hell have you been doing for the last 48 hours? Stop reading and go watch it. Note:Read More


Suicide Squad (2016) – Meet Deadpool and Harley Quinn

Suicide Squad

Sure, this is not considered horror, but they can’t all be, right? So let me start this by saying I haven’t read the comics. Neither The Husband nor myself are comic book fans (anymore), but we are decently versed on the superhero mythos. We know the difference between DC and Marvel (ok, that’s mostly due to our 8 year old, but whatevs) and I’m a huge Harley Quinn fan. (If you ask nicely, I’ll even do the voice) So, when we heard all the rumblings about Suicide Squad (2016) startRead More


Ghostbusters (2016) – Who Ya Gonna Call

Ghostbusters (2016) Alt

If you’ve been online at all this past weekend, chances are you’ve seen a review for Ghostbusters (2016). Maybe even one here on ScareTissue. If you HAVE been online and haven’t seen one, I can only assume you are too caught up in Disney Emoji Blitz or are too busy Pokémoning. (What I call playing Pokémon Go.) In light of all the crap I’ve seen spewed, I thought this would be the perfect movie to come back with. Let’s face it, I like to spew crap right back! See, I’ve been out ofRead More


The Walking Dead – JSS (S06E02)

“Ok, what the hell does that mean?” I asked The Husband, who does not always appreciate my (very) witty commentary. But after seeing Enid, played by Katelyn Nacon with a quiet intensity, write those three letters (JSS) for the fourth time, I just wanted to know. And we finally got it later in this episode: Just Survive Somehow Clearly, that’s a motto everyone in this show should “live” by. In this episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead, we pull away from the band of walker herders from the previous episode whoRead More


The Walking Dead – First Time Again (S06E01)

Not only is AMC’s The Walking Dead back, but so am I! They keep knocking me down, and I keep crawling back. I’m not really sure who keeps knocking me down… I suppose just life in general. But just like our band of zombie killers, we can’t let chaos stop us. So after a crazy year, it’s only now that I feel like I’ve found my footing, so it’s back to reviewing that genre of movies and TV we all love so much – the scary stuff! Last season, IRead More


Return To Camp Crystal Lake

Oh, so you survived the first part? You didn’t throw your hands in the air and consider the previous 7 rankings a disgrace? You want more? Well, here you go! Here are what I consider the Top 5 films from the Friday the 13th franchise. (Remember 12 was least favorite and 1 is the favorite. Not sure how or why I’m ranking them? Go back to part 1 of this list and find out!) 5) Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988): As I noted in the previousRead More


Welcome To Camp Crystal Lake

In honor of producer Brad Fuller getting his head out of his behind and agreeing that the next Friday will NOT be a found footage crapfest, I thought I would rank the Friday movies in order of my love for them. I thought this would be a good way for me to ease back into reviewing after a (too long!) absence. I fell down a flight of brick stairs in late February and I’m still getting over that. (Would love to know why a jammed finger and bruised/cracked ribs takeRead More


The Walking Dead – Conquer (S05E16)

Well, looks like I’ll be watching the next season of AMC’s The Walking Dead! If you read my previous recap, you know what that means – MORGAN! I’ve been a fan of the so-cool-without-even-trying Lennie James since Jericho. (You haven’t seen it? You need to. Awesome show!) There’s just something about him. He’s like the cool guy that you’d love to have as your neighbor ’cause you just know he’s going to have all the power tools and a cold beer in his fridge. There was some speculation on theRead More


The Walking Dead – Try (S05E15)

I have good reason that this recap of season 5 episode 15 of AMC’s The Walking Dead is coming out on a Wednesday. I fell asleep from the snoozefest that was “Try.” And I just now bothered to wake up… Ok, seriously. It wasn’t HORRIBLE, but this is the episode before the season finale – the episode that is supposed to drive the conflict to come. And what I got was filler. Note: Come on! It’s me. You know there are going to be spoilers throughout this review/recap. You mayRead More
