After an awesomely successful Kickstarter campaign, the Fear Fan is back! This time, he's reviewing the lesser-known 1981 film Wolfen.

With his new equipment, the Fear Fan offers a personal thank you to his viewers, as well as an outline for some changes on the show.

After a six month hiatus, the Fear Fan is back! And this time, he's taking on the Crapmaster General of cinema: Uwe Boll.

As the Fear Fan gets ready for the first episode of Terror Obscura Season 2, he takes a moment to review Tied in Blood, a special fan request. The result? Ghost blowies, A-Team references, and incredibly worrying séance phrases.

In this episode of Terror Obscura: Jason Voorhees, sentient steel shutters, and a misunderstanding of the word "taint" abound! What does any of that have to do with Godzilla? Heck if Fear Fan knows.
Join the Fear Fan as he takes on Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare, the sixth entry in the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. Although it's been smooth sailing so far, with five good-to-decent entries, things are about to get much, much worse for the Fear Fan as he enters a world of terrible humor, bad acting, Roseanne and Tom Arnold cameos, cartoon sound effects, and a retcon so awful that it could disrupt the very fabric of the space time continuum!
While you count down to 2012, join the Fear Fan as he counts down his list of the top 10 greatest vampires in movie history. With some obvious choices (Max Shreck) and some not-so-obvious choices (Pee-Wee Herman?), one thing’s for sure: none of these vampires sparkle!
“Fear Fan looks at the fifth installment in the Nightmare on Elm Street series, where Alice (one of the survivors of Part 4) learns that Freddy wants to return to the real world by invading the subconscious of her unborn baby.

“This time on Terror Obscura, it’s 1989’s Shocker, director Wes Craven’s failed attempt to create a film franchise to rival his own Nightmare on Elm Street series. In it, a high school football player (played by Friday Night Lights director Peter Berg) faces off against an executed serial killer (a scenery-chewing Skinner from The X-Files) with the power to jump into the bodies of other people. Berg is forced to pursue him from body to body, across the broadcast airwaves, and eventually through all of television. But more importantly, there’s a cameo by John Tesh!”
