In regards to the artists who have contributed to this genre since it’s inception, we look at a few films that have shaped present-day horror. 1. The Cabinet of Dr.
Eighteen months ago, I wrote my very first review for Screen Invasion. I was a cherubic, bright-eyed 26 year old, newly married and enjoying my time in Manhattan. My editor, Kristal Bailey, invited me to write a Retro Review of Die Hard. I accepted, because, why the hell not? It’s Die Hard, after all. Despite

As PROMETHEUS opens up this week, we continue our conversation of all things important surrounding the movie. We posted our first post yesterday, and today we look at the R rating, creature design, and dichotomy of optimism and pessimism surrounding the release. I had the privilege to be joined by
