The “t” in New York

Published on August 10, 2011 By Fox

This blog has unfortunately just been sitting here, lost in the mist that is the blogosphere. So I (Fox) am going to try to repurpose it a little. I’ll talk about the movie business and films, but mainly from a writer’s perspective. I’m also going to use it to discuss screenwriter crap – formatting, character, […]

Fox Reviews The Troll Hunter

Published on May 4, 2011 By Fox

Let’s recap: among the various “found footage” movies, we’ve had ghosts, witches, cannibals, and even a Godzilla-type monster. But would you ever consider tree-sized (and bigger) trolls to be a subject of one of these “supposed to be for reals” flicks? Would that even work? I’m here to tell you it absolutely does! I caught […]

5 Cheesy Films for Christmas

Published on December 17, 2010 By Fox

Yeah, we said Christmas. Not that we take some issue with that “war on Christmas” garbage, but there isn’t exactly a cornucopia of Kwanzaa or Hanukah horror flicks. Get on that, other filmmakers who aren’t me! Anyway, here’s a list of five cheesy flicks you should check out as you open presents  by that crappy […]

5 Things I Hate About Recent Horror Movies

Published on December 3, 2010 By Fox

To go along with Zombie Cat contributor Gary Hamrick’s recent angry rant about how much he hates “horror movies,” I’d like to present my own feelings on the subject. Gary’s column, while incendiary, isn’t completely off base. Most horror fans have felt for a while that not enough strides have been made to further the […]

Published on November 24, 2010 By Fox

Quick post today, lots of driving today. First, if you live in the Atlanta area or are visiting soon, make sure to go to Dante’s Down the Hatch. Our friend Molly from Zombie Cat Productions had a birthday blowout there last night and it was freakin’ fantastic. Take a lot of friends and prepare to […]

Top 5 Films for Frustrated Writers

Published on November 19, 2010 By Fox

As all our fans (there are literally DOZEN of you) know, I, Fox, am an incredibly successful screenwriter and author when I’m not currently sobbing through our latest bad movie we’re reviewing. Like other ridiculously rich and successful writers, I sometimes get frustrated and need a quick pick me up. Since I love movies, I […]

Why Filmmakers Should Watch Bad Movies

Published on November 12, 2010 By Fox

A friend and colleague of mine always scoffs at my love of bad cinema whenever it comes up. “Why would I want to watch bad movies?” he says with a snicker. “I want to make good movies, so I watch good movies.” Unfortunately for my misguided friend, he’s human, just like me. And like all […]

Published on November 4, 2010 By Fox

The leaves are falling, the air is cold, the time is changing…Christmas is right around the corner, right? Wrong! You’re forgetting about the stuffing, the turkey, the cranberry sauce, the screaming matches with your cousin; you’re forgetting about Thanksgiving! It really is the most overlooked holiday, but we’re here to fix that. If you’re worried […]

5 Atmospheric Horror Movies for Your Halloween Bash

Published on October 29, 2010 By Fox

We’ve all been to those lame ass Halloween parties where the host thought it would be “hilarious” to throw on some goofy Halloween music for the soundtrack. Between the 20th repeat of “Monster Mash” and the third cover of “Thriller,” you put your stale chips and crappy Bud Light down and go home, probably to […]

What It Takes to be a Zombie

Published on August 27, 2010 By Fox

This is a reprint of an article from Zombie Cat Productions. Much has been said on the measure of a man. But what about the measure of a zombie? Every time a new movie that comes out which features a bunch of “somethings” that used to be people attacking a group of real people, it’s […]
