‘Seed of Chucky’ Adds My Exact Kind Of Shock To The Franchise! On the 13th anniversary of its release, ‘Seed of Chucky’ remains one of the wildest entries in the Child’s Play franchise. That’s saying a lot for a series based on a killer doll. For me, the 2004 film is the perfect mix of…

‘Dragula’ Pushes The Limits of Drag & Horror! The Boulet Brothers are a “John Waters wet dream.” Their brand is always shocking and campy, but ‘Dragula’ is a filth masterpiece.
