RobertTheDoll-Slider
According to the legend, Robert is a haunted doll that was given the the son of the Otto family by a fired servant angry over the termination. The servant was fired by Mrs. Otto for supposedly seeing her practice black magic in the back yard. In the time immediately following the giving of the doll, strange things ranging from footsteps and laughter to attacking people at the worst began to happen. In the years, the doll has made its way to the East Martello Museum in Key West, and into the hearts of many paranormal fans and writers. With The Boy having recently come out, and Annabelle being another recent contribution to the possessed doll world, it was only a matter of time before this very doll got a direct film of its on. Enter writer/director Andrew Jones (The Last House on Cemetery Lane, The Amityville Asylum) and North Bank Entertainment to bring the 2015 film Robert the Doll to life. But is it something that rivals the two most recent major motion pictures from Hollywood, or is this nothing but a boring Child’s Play knock-off?

BearHavenNights
With the Five Nights at Freddy’s craze still in full swing, I intended to review the recent RPG entry as my return to Youtube following the mental breakdown that occurred at the end of my Morphine long play. However, Scott Cawthon decided to pull it, and left a huge hole in my schedule. Thankfully SunRay Games came to the rescue when they released their entry into the survival security guard horror genre with the mobile port of Bear Haven titled Bear Haven Nights! Check out what this game has in store, and how it treads away from the established format, as Apoch Plays returns for 2016 as the new security staff member of Bear Haven Motel!

Fuath-ISlider
Fuath, Gaelic for “hatred”, comes to us from the United Kingdom and, yes, it’s another one man black metal operation. This atmospheric solo project is helmed by Andy Marshall of Saor and (former) Askival fame. This endeavour started out last year, and was one certain circles and fans of his have patiently waited for. The end result is the 2016 debut four-song outing I, a thick slab of the atmospheric black metal style. But is it one the black metal community as a whole should take notice of, or is it just a relentless album in all the wrong ways?

Aborted-TerminationReduxSlider
Aborted has been one of those groups that seemed to skirt the underground scene for nearly all of their existence as a band. The Belgium death metal maniacs formed back in 1995 and, following two demo recordings, were finally picked up in 1999 for their debut full-length, The Purity of Perversion. Since then, the band has been on various labels through their career, unleashing eight full-lengths, a number of split contributions, and various EPs. It wasn’t until 2007 that they gained the attention of Century Media Records, who unleashed their Slaughter & Apparatus: A Methodical Overture album to the masses. What followed had been what a number of long time fans considered a slow decline, leaving many just okay the newer material, though not embracing the direction behind them as well as prior efforts like 2003’s Goremageddon: The Saw and the Carnage Done. But, with the band reaching their 20th anniversary, Aborted recorded a brand new EP titled Termination Redux, and issued it in various limited vinyl pressings, as well as digital download. But is this special treat for fans really something juicy, or is it just a bland experience that banks on the fact that it’s an anniversary release?
