The Monster Squad (1987) Perspective Review



As children of the 80’s, our imaginations propelled us into great adventures. Fighting against a Galactic Empire in a galaxy far, far away? Yep. Learning to “Never Say Die” as we hunt for pirate treasure through booby trapped caves? Of course. Throwing on our proton packs, crossing the streams and saving the world? Do you even have to ask? Thanks to the films of the decade, my friends and I never ran out of things to pretend to be. But once in a generation, a film comes along and does more than entertain you. It teaches you, as well. Teaches you to face your fears, teaches you to never give up hope, teaches you that Wolf Man has nards. Gather the gang and meet at the club house because it’s time for the 2GuysTalkingHorror’s Perspective Review of the 1987 classic The Monster Squad!

GAME OVER – The History of Survival Horror Video Games



Life is not always a world of wine and roses. In fact, it can flat out suck sometimes. Dead end job? Cheating spouse? Life threatening medical diagnosis? No matter what problems you face, you know that there is a way to escape for awhile…Entertainment! Film, television, books, all are used to retreat from the real world for a time. But no form of escapism is more interactive than video games. With the ability to transport us into far off worlds and drop us into our darkest nightmares, video games give us the ability to navigate our own, sometimes twisted, destiny without fear of reproductions or feelings of guilt. And horror video games give us so much more. Grab hold of your sawed off shotgun, don your blessed armor of power and prepare to face your demons…it’s time for 2GuysTalkingHorror!
