Horror At The Box Office:


Horror is once again back on top in the box office as ‘A Quiet Place’ has dethroned the most recent Spielberg flick ‘Ready Player One’ with a take of $50 million dollars. Seeing as it’s ‘freshness rating’ is at 97%, it’s no surprise that it’s the best film this week.


Most other genre related films have fallen off the rankings with the exception of ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’ which dropped from fifth to the ninth spot bringing in a total of just over $267 million dollars world wide.

From what I’m currently seeing, ‘Truth or dare’, which is the latest Blumhouse film coming to theaters will be going up against ‘Rampage’. This factor, alongside horror fans unwillingness to see the film due to its PG-13 rating is likely going to cause the film to fail financially. An unfortunate thing to see but very common when going up against a blockbuster. Especially one which stars the ‘People’s Champ, The Rock’.



Indie Support:




“A one of a kind thrill ride into the depths of depravity and gore!!! Believe it or not, it is a Horror Film Noir, with crazed killer Clowns on a rampage from Hell... out for revenge and only BLOOD can quench their savage desire for destruction!!!!

Community Spotlight





I first fell in love with Terror Threads when they opened up shop just over two years ago. What started out as a small business run by an incredible husband and wife team, selling a handful of original t-shirt designs, has grown into a thriving shop and an active member of the horror community.


They now offer dozens and dozens of unique designs, with a wide range of originals and a large selection of Officially Licensed apparel and merchandise from some of the best horror properties. They’ve collaborated closely with Horror icons — including Felissa Rose, Danielle Harris, and the Soska Sisters — and partnered with popular indie horror filmmakers to promote films like Death House, The Houses October Built, and Terrifier.

The remarkable growth they’ve experienced in such a short amount of time is a testament to the exceptional quality of their apparel, their genuine passion and love for horror, and their unbeatable customer service.

It’s been such a joy to watch them grow and see them get the attention and love from the horror community they so deserve. But, even though they are now one of the biggest players in the horror apparel game, the shop is still run like a small business — with tremendous heart, sincerity, and a humility that you don’t often see among the bigger shops.


The owner, Rick, is still very connected with the community. He attends as many conventions as possible to personally interact with the fans who love and support his business. He says thank you to everyone who shares photos of their Terror Threads merchandise on Instagram. He takes the time to repost everyone who shares. He shows the same respect and appreciation to those with 5 followers or 500,000.

He is the first to volunteer whenever I’ve asked for donations for fundraising events. He always goes out of his way to help in any way he can. He never acts like he’s too big to be bothered and is genuinely grateful to everyone who appreciates the work he does — the work I know he pours his heart and soul into. It’s always a joy to buy products I absolutely love from a company I can really believe in and feel good about supporting.
