The 15 Best Final Girls In Horror Movies Ranked

While horror films have been around for several decades, the term "final girl" was coined more recently than most people may think. Originally created in 1992 by author Carol J. Clover in her book "Men, Women, and Chainsaws: Gender in the Modern Horror Film," the term refers to a common trope in horror movies in which the last female character(s) alive confront and defeat or escape the killer, essentially becoming the only people left to tell the story.  Characteristics of a final girl include a...

Backtrack: A replica XR750 tracker from Gasoline

There are a handful of classics out there that look amazingly ‘right.’ In that category, we’d put machines like the Norton Manx, the Moto Guzzi Le Mans, and the early Honda CB750s and Kawasaki Zeds. In the V-twin world the Harley-Davidson XR750 fits into that category. But it didn’t just look good: it was also one of the most successful race bikes of all time. The XR750 won an incredible 29 AMA Grand National Championships, and garnered even more fame as the weapon of choice for Evel Knievel...

The 20 Best 2000s Horror Movies Ranked

After the bountiful harvest the decade before, horror films fell into somewhat of a rut in the '90s. It was an era that saw the long overdue death of a number of once-lucrative franchises like Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th, thanks to sequels with lessening box office returns. However, a resurgence began with the dawn of the new millennium. With the emergence of digital film technology and affordable computing power, films were cheaper to make, while the internet was a brand new fro...

SF Book Review – Part 38: The Long Winter and Moar

I’m still catching up with recent SF reading and I figure it’s best to get this out before the Six Weeks of Halloween revs up. This post covers stuff I read from June right up until last week, so we’re pretty much caught up. Naturally, we’ll cover some horror books during the 6WH, so it may be a while before returning to SF proper. Anywho, let’s get to it: First up is the Long Winter Trilogy: Winter World, by A.G.

Vamp or Not? The Village in the Woods

This is a British folk horror directed by Raine McCormack and released in 2019. It captures, really well, that sense of Uncanny with the protagonists kept off kilter by the familiar feeling distinctly unfamiliar, a sense of decay and the feeling that they have stepped into the past. It plays with the idea of faerie – in the mist shrouded village that defies escape. There are elements, like the little “corn” dolls, which might tie into a deeper lore, unexplored, but are window dressing for the ...

Reopening the Books

We have become accustomed for some time to hearing about new start-ups and initiatives on the technology side of legal information provision. Indeed, some might say that we hear of too many of them and that a percentage of them might disappear into obscurity before long. We read less of fresh ideas and innovation in relation to the provision of actual added-value legal content from law publishers. Perhaps this is not surprising, for obvious reasons. It is all the more pleasing to observe an exci...

Jason Momoa, Isabela Merced talk about their father-daughter bond in ‘Sweet Girl’

By LINDSEY BAHR Jason Momoa doesn’t get to play many ordinary guys. He’s Aquaman. He’s Khal Drogo. He’s Conan the Barbarian. It’s part of the reason why he wanted to be in “Sweet Girl,” a new action drama out on Netflix. In the film he’s an ordinary Pittsburgh father named Ray Cooper who vows to get revenge against a pharmaceutical company he blames for his wife’s death. As a father himself, it was a natural fit, and he got to hand pick the actress who’d play his on screen daughter: “Instant Fam...
