Cinema Knife Fight is a horror movie review column. It began in 2005, and has had long runs on both the Hellnotes newsletter (2004 to 2006) and the horror website Fear Zone (2007 to 2009). Equal parts Siskel & Ebert, EC Horror comics, and Spy vs. Spy, CKF is both informative (real movie reviews) as well as entertaining (with a strong injection of humor).
