Part III of V in my horror perspective article for Sailor Twift. This one features flicks from 2000-2009.
The dog days of summer are here, so try and chill with some good flicks from the first decade of the new millennium!

Why didn’t the year 2000 have any movies named in this survey? Unfortunately, the Y2K hysteria was scarier than any horror movies released that year.
We’ll leap right over the first year in the decade straight into 2001, where some asbestos removal guys get to work on the Danvers State Mental Hospital in Massachusetts in Session 9. This psychological thriller features a pre-CSI: Miami David Caruso delivering one of the most epic “F*** You” lines in history.
Danvers has a dark past, so being closed 15 years is perfect timing for Caruso and a bunch of other guys to head in and start cleaning it out. What’s the worst that could happen?
With only one film named in the first two years of the decade, 2002 carried SIX films mentioned in this survey.
One survey respondent spoke from personal experience when naming Swimfan

Here’s part two of my horror survey report for those that may have missed it. This is about the horror films featured in the 1990s!
I don’t know why, but November was a popular month for horror in 1990. The three films named in this survey released that year resided in the month of November. Tim Curry as “Pennywise the Clown” would scare a generation of youngsters in the TV miniseries based on Stephen King’s 1986 best-selling novel IT. To make a TV-14 offering of a book as graphic and twisted as IT is a victory (in my opinion) for director and co-writer Tommy Lee Wallace.
King would have another novel converted into a film for release, this time on the big screen, in Misery. James Caan showed us just how helpless he could be in his portrayal of author Paul Sheldon, while Kathy Bates delivered a chilling performance as an obsessed fan of his, Annie Wilkes. The role gained Bates an Academy Award for Best Actress. Misery stays with you long after…

Here’s how my Horror survey turned out! Thanks to all who participated!
There are so many reasons to be a fan of horror movies right now. Hollywood has already to date released nine films on the big-screen that carry the official genre-filtering title when trying to purchase tickets online. John Squires of Bloody Disgusting reported back on February 6 that five out of the top 10 highest-grossing films of 2017 at that point carried the horror label. Currently, eight of the top 30 grossing films at the box office in the first quarter of the year are a certain brand of horror according to Box Office Mojo.
There had to be a reason so many horror films were being released in 2017, in a genre once poo-pooed by the Hollywood elite. And there are still so many to come!
There is a thought I was not willing to share with my peers until I did a little research on my own…

My review of Philly artist Sean MacGregor’s first foray into Country Music. Not so Country, but an enjoyable drive!
by Eddie Caiazzo
Title: Winding Road
Artist: Sean MacGregor
Release Date: Friday, November 4, 2016
Produced by Sean MacGregor and Ron DiSilvestro
For the better part of two decades, the Philly influence in popular music has all but evaporated, leaving local artists to experiment with different genres from around the country. Sean MacGregor, an artist that emerged in the early 2000s, is the latest to be bitten by the Country music bug.
MacGregor fronted the Alternative Rock band MorningSide from 2000-2010, when the band decided it was time to go their separate ways. MorningSide’s success brought MacGregor to all of the major local stages including World Café Live, the old Grape Street Pub (now called The Grape Room) and the main stage at the Trocadero as the headliner. The band’s decision to move on left this Northeast Philadelphia Alt-Rocker with songs yet to be written, and…

Some thoughts on The Weeknd for Sailor Twift, a site I guest write for at times.
Admittedly…The Weeknd wasn’t on my radar until reading the Philadelphia Inquirer Music Critic Dan DeLuca’s article on the Canadian singer’s upcoming headlining performance the Sunday of the 2015 Budweiser Made in America Festival. It was surprising to see an artist (at least in my eyes) so fresh to the music scene headlining a festival with more than 70,000 attendees.
After a superficial online search about The Weeknd at that time, I found his name (Abel Tesfaye), his hair, an autumn 2014 raunchy duet with another up-and-coming Republic Records label-mate, Ariana Grande, and the track “Earned It” that appropriately supported the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack. The latter ultimately becoming his first Top 5 hit, receiving an Academy Award nomination and a Grammy win for Best R&B Performance.
DJing mostly weddings, private parties, corporate and radio events, my music collection is curated with the latest up-tempo hits and…

Almost forgot, our first short film is coming 2017! Can’t wait to share this short comedy with you all.
Our not-so-secret short film project kicked off last weekend after a period of writing, re-writing, difficult casting, and even-more-difficult location scouting. Special thanks to Scally’s Auto Repair in Clifton Heights, PA for being a life-saver.
After two full days of rigorous early-Autumn shooting, we wrapped photograph for our supplemental cast members and tacked on an extra day for main cast shooting in the upcoming weeks.
More behind-the-scenes goodies to come!
No plot spoilers and no theme spoilers, but if you can judge by these photos (and you almost certainly can not) we’ve got a lot of surprises ahead.
Until next time!
