But he sure as hell could be if the following happens:
Us is another smash hit for the genre
His 3rd horror film is a smash hit
Has a successful genre show (Twilight Zone becomes a sensation)
He makes a crap 4th film that becomes a cult classic
These are the 4 rules of becoming a horror icon. Don’t believe me? Just looks at the Crazy Uncle of horror John Carpenter’s holy trilogy: Halloween, The Fog and The Thing.
“Somebody pay me!”
Still not convinced? Check out the cool Uncle of Horror – Wes Craven’s Holy Trilogy: The Last House on the Left, The Hills Have Eyes and A Nightmare on Elm Street. However, Mr. Craven’s entire career was filled with classics and cult classics. But it is his holy trilogy that skyrocketed him to success!
“Don’t forget about me!”
And let us not forget the author turned legendary director Stephen King!

God. If Us turns into a bad horror flick we will all be sad. After all, Jordan Peele is a fucking guy that has shocked us all (especially white folk).
Here’s to hoping Jordan Peele becomes a horror icon!
When I’m bored I like to look around the Youtube machine for creepy videos. Strangely enough, finding original content is hard. Everything is creepypasta this and crappypasta that. So when I found out about these two cats named Sam and Colby I was fucking pumped because they literally have movie quality vids….Christ, did I really just write “vids?”
Below you’ll find their adventures into an abandoned insane asylum. From the editing to the dramatic music, these kids should be making fucking horror flicks. Until they do, I will forever be watching their Youtube channel. And so should you!
Between the dark days of our regular episodes come Shock Sessions: Brief horror related topics individually produced and presented by our horrific hosts.

But don’t say we didn’t warn you.
We recorded a super sweet episode of Its Alive Horror Podcast in which we discuss our favorite episodes of the Twilight Zone!
This episode spawned because I was on a huge Twilight Zone binge. I must of watched about 2-3 seasons within a weekend. I couldn’t help but marvel at how relevant each episode was. I mean they almost ALL had connections to our modern culture and society. I knew we had to discuss it!
This episode did get a bit political but in a good way. It highlighted the obvious issues and connections that we, as a modern society, are facing. We will never apologize for that – sorry not sorry.
Fun fact – we came up with the intro the day of. We wanted to do a mini-radio drama that put us in the Twilight Zone. It worked flawlessly! The end monologue was something we wrote minutes after. We died laughing!
I hope you enjoy this fantastic episode! Please feel free to review on Itunes or wherever!
In this special episode of It’s Alive!, Chris and Eric grab some coffee in the dimension of imagination. We sit down and discuss the impact Rod Serling’s Twilight Zone has had on television and modern culture. We also put on our intellectual caps and examine the themes in 2of the best written episodes and how they relate today. So find your middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, as the It’s Alive! Podcast delves deep into the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge.
