You Can Tour Camp Crystal Lake From ‘Friday the 13th’ This Halloween

During a pandemic, what’s the fall season alternative to going to a private island party where everyone tested negative for COVID-19? Taking a trip to the real-life Camp Crystal Lake from Friday the 13th in the deep woods of Hardwick, New Jersey. While this doesn’t sound like a great idea considering what happened to all the past visitors of Camp Crystal Lake, you can be assured that the only thing stalking you will be a virus, and not a serial killer in a hockey mask. Probably. Bloody Disgu...

The Horror Films of 1978

About a year ago, I embarked on the 1978 Project, a deep dive into the films of a single year (guess which one?!) There were indeed some horror heavy hitters that year, including the likes of Halloween, Dawn of the Dead, Invasion of the Body Snatchers (the surprisingly good remake), and Magic. The problem here is that I’ve already seen all of those classics (some for the 6WH itself). Plus, I’ve already covered some of the smaller stuff too. Highlights include Coma, The Fury, and The Eyes of Laur...

Bill Burr Lights Up a ‘Saturday Night Live’ That’s Much More Satisfying Than the Season Premiere

Saturday Night Live got off to a bit of a rough start last weekend with an uneven episode and a production that was full of hiccups. But perhaps it was just season premiere jitters for the first show back in the studio since the coronavirus pandemic forced the series to do three remotely produced episodes to close out the previous season. The new episode of SNL with comedian Bill Burr hosting for the evening saw a big step up in quality, and it was even a little more edgy and dark than what we ...
