My Bloody Valentine (1981) – Steps in The Dark

My Bloody Valentine, directed by George Mihalka, is a slasher genre movie set on the day of the popular celebration of love that is Valentine's Day. That is why we chose today to talk about it for our Steps in The Dark collection, even though, as we already said, it is much more of a splatter movie than it is a horror, but it can definitely serve to stay on the topic of the current Valentine celebrations. My Bloody Valentine - Premise Twenty years before the events of the main story, on...

An epidemic in three parts: Seoul Station

Right from its release, Train to Busan has gained fame and recognition that were fully deserved. It's cemented itself almost immediately as one of the best movies of the horror renaissance of the last few years and brought with it the possibility of expanding its narrative universe with two more works, one that precedes and one that follows it: Seoul Station and Peninsula. However, Train to Busan's immediate success might not have been enough to guarantee that its prequel and sequel maintained...
