When I started this blog back in 2016 on January 19 (Poe’s birthday), I figured I’d do it for a few months and give up. Two years and 99 posts later, here we are. Naturally, the only thing to do on such an occasion is to round up 100 Horror Movies for your dining and dancing pleasure. Continue Reading
Special edition of The Naro Escape this month! DmanFilms, film students from Regent University, chose Naro Video as the subject for their mini-documentary project.
Sidebar– Your humble narrator politely declined being interviewed. Pathological loathing of cameras and all that.
Sidebar 2.0– Next week is Blogferatu’s 100th Post (for which I’m compiling a very special list)!
I haven’t watched The Oscars in years and should have known better than to try again. I was frustrated enough by 9:45 to stop watching.
Best Director and Best Picture were fine.
Best Actress was okay.
Best Make-up was kinda obvious.
Best Screenplay was a good choice but an ultimately hollow gesture.
Everything else? Questionable.
And that’s all I’ve got to say. So there.
I love Bernard Quatermass. He’s sort of a grouchy, anything-for-science, early combination of Peter Cushing as Dr. Frankenstein, William Hartnell as The Doctor, and MacGyver. There’s also a Frankesteinish streak of driven determination to him, the kind that usually leads to disaster. Continue Reading
This post is part of the Singing Sweethearts Blogathon hosted by Rebekah at Pure Entertainment Preservation Society.
You might find it odd to find the denizens of Castle Blogferatu skulking about in such musical territory, especially on a day like this. The truth is, we like Valentine’s Day. The only difference is that here, all the hearts are, well, in jars. Continue Reading
Yes, I know. I already put up a list of horror movies you can get at Naro Video but can’t stream on Netflix. But now that the lists of 2017 Staff Favorite DVD Releases are officially posted, I thought I’d go ahead, get a fridge magnet, and stick my list on the big ol’ walk-in freezer here at Castle Blogferatu as well.
No, you may not ask what the walk-in freezer is for.
(Note: This is not exclusively a horror list, but for your convenience and protection, I’ve starred the horror movies. What can I say? I’m a giver).
Beguiled * (well, I consider it horror)
Beyond The Gates *
Blackcoat’s Daughter *
The Eagle Huntress
Get Out *
A Ghost Story *
I Am Not Your Negro
The Lure * (when is the last time you saw a Polish mermaid vampire horror musical?)
Rats * (hey, documentaries can still be horror)
Stranger Things: Season One *
Sun Choke *
The Void *
Yes, it’s that time of year, time for an end-of-year roundup of sorts. Originally I thought I’d list my favorite horror movies of 2017, but since we’re all doing our favorite 2017 DVDs for Naro Video (yes, I actually work there now), I thought I’d take a slightly different tack.
So here are 25 horror movies (including links to those I’ve reviewed) available at Naro Video but not on Netflix (at least, not as I write this). Not necessarily all the best flicks ever, but still some (not nearly all) of my favorites. Incidentally, you can also check out the staff favorites at Naro Video soon. Continue Reading
I’ve been waiting all this foul year of our lord for K-Shop to be available in the U.S. Oh sure, several friends suggested a few methods, some less savory than others, by which I could have watched the UK version on my computer, and while I’m not the most ethical creature I know, I am one of the more paranoid.
So I waited. Continue Reading
“It’s the season to be jolly…like it or not.” Truman Capote said that. Similarly, we here at Castle Blogferatu aren’t too big on the whole holiday cheer thing. I mean, who doesn’t love keeping Saturn in Saturnalia? Continue Reading
We here at Castle Blogferatu have been overindulging in the culinary wonders put forth by our own Dr. Terror. Turns out the man is quite the gourmet (best, however, not to delve too deeply into his supply chains). The Naro Escape will return in full force with, no doubt, some kind of Christmas horror classic.
