The only silver lining to working 70 hr weeks in the film industry is perhaps the discovery of entire films uploaded online, intact, and the freedom to have them rolling in the background while one toils; which lately, has been my only means of keeping a healthy sub-par horror diet.
Hence as a doctor, scholar and [...]
As you have probably noticed my contributions towards AndyErupts have mainly focused on TV based horror, this is due to the fact that whenever I have free time I end up wasting away my days watching a LOT of horror TV shows and as I love nothing more than talking about horror and making people [...]
At some point we have all sat in a cinema or relaxed with a film at home, something you’ve never seen only for something to suddenly scare the living crap out of you. These moments can be terrifying, shocking or actually quite funny. We have all seen some poor audience member jumping out of their [...]

Me: Not guilty, your honour.
Judge: Please be seated. Prosecution, your witness.
Prosecutor Andy: Thank you, your honour. Mr Organ, do you agree that [...]

So much so that a local jock takes an early nose dive off of his parents roof in a doomed attempt to prove his love to Mandy by making an unfeasibly far leap into the shallow garden pool below. His head ruptures like a blood-filled pumpkin and Mandy’s weirdo friend Emmet (Michael Welch) [...]
