Big Trouble For The Dream Warriors

2015 HorrorHound Indianapolis - LoPan (original)

So it’s nearly WrestleMania time once again! In less than a week, Pip will make his yearly trek to Cleveland for a weekend of pretending we’re way younger than we actually are, movie viewing and general bad behavior. I won’t speak for him but I look forward to our twice yearly get togethers and I start counting down to his Cleveland trip pretty much from the time I pull out of his driveway on my … Continue reading

Meeting Robert Englund – Welcome To Prime Time Chewie

Robert Englund & Chewie

In a recent post I talked about how I got to cross off a bucket list item last month when Pip and I attended HorrorHound Weekend in Indianapolis and I got to meet Barry Bostwick.  The last line of that particular post I ended like this: “The weekend didn’t end there… I had another “nightmarish” encounter at the same show.  But that will be covered in another post.”  And finally… here’s the other post.  If you couldn’t … Continue reading

The Weekend That Was: Movies, Breweries & WrestleMania 29

Chewie With The Great Lakes Brewery Flight

I’m several weeks late on this post, but I wanted to make sure that I put a recap post together from Pip’s yearly trip to Cleveland.  Unlike recent years we actually had some semblance of an agenda that we miraculously managed to stick to!  I find that as the years go on I tend to look back on these posts more and more.  I’d like to say its because I want to look back at … Continue reading

A Nightmare On Pip Street

Pip As Freddy

I just simply HAD to share this.  Check out Pip’s bad ass Halloween costume this year!  As you may or may not know, Pip and I are pretty hard core horror movie buffs.  In fact, we’ve taken this love for horror and actually turned it into something… We’re in the process of launching a website where we’ll talk nothing but horror movies and reviews.  When you get a moment check out www.scaretissue.com for all the … Continue reading

Freddy’s Back… Sort Of… “A Nightmare On Elm Street”

A Nightmare On Elm Street (2010)

The wife isn’t a huge horror movie fan, but she’ll indulge me once a year on Halloween.  Last year we watched Psycho and the previous year we checked out the original Halloween.  I’d had the remake of A Nightmare On Elm Street sitting on my shelf for quite a few months now and I figured Halloween night was a good opportunity to check it out. In a word… meh. First off, the flick starts in … Continue reading

11 Years And We’re Still Screaming For Scream 4

Scream 4 (2011)

I don’t go to the movies all that often these days but when it comes to a good horror franchise I just can’t pass it up.  I consider the Scream franchise one of the best in horror over the last couple of decades so Marko and I headed to the theater on opening weekend to check this one out. I was not a huge fan of the third entrance into this series (that’s the one … Continue reading

You Really Can’t Go Wrong With Some Kenny Loggins

Kenny Loggins Album

I’ve said it time and time again… I’m a geek. 80’s movies are my wheelhouse ranging anywhere from science fiction to action movies to horror. Many times these movies come complete with some cheesy soundtrack and when we’re talking soundtracks no one does it better than the man… Kenny Loggins. I’m Alright – Caddyshack (1980) I can’t embed it here, but if you want THE edition of this song you’ve got to check it out … Continue reading

Hockey Masks, Razor Blades & Impalements… Oh My

Scream

The fall seems to be synonymous with horror movies.  It might be due to a little flick called Halloween.  In any case I’m a HUGE fan of the genre (as evidenced by the fact that Pip and I started a horror movie review website called ScareTissue).  For my money I’d pick a horror/slasher flick any day of the week.  Sure they’re campy, gory and go for the surprise factor but I absolutely LOVE them.  For … Continue reading

Jason Is Back On ‘Friday The 13th’

Friday The 13th (2009)

In 1980 the face of horror movies changed.  We were introduced to Camp Crystal Lake and a killer named Jason Voorhees (yes, I know that Jason’s mother was the killer in the original… stick with me).  From 1980 to 2003, we were given 11 sequels that took Jason from Crystal Lake to deep space,  New York City and even to Hell.  After nearly 30 years it was time for this franchise to get rebooted… apparently. … Continue reading

‘Saw’ – Horror Hasn’t Looked So Good In Years

Saw (2004)

Now before you get all on my case about this movie review being 5 years too late let me give you a bit of background… I don’t watch nearly as many movies as I used to.  At least I don’t watch them right when they come out.  The wife and I haven’t seen a movie in the last 15 years that we both like so it’s very rare that we rent anything.  My kids are … Continue reading
