Robert Rodriguez Tackling ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK Remake; John Carpenter Approves!

On Friday afternoon, word started spreading online that filmmaker Robert Rodriguez was “in talks” to direct the long in development remake of John Carpenter’s cult classic ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK. I held off on posting about it here, because “in talks” means just that. In talks. And that’s never a sure fire, done deal. In […]

The King Rises In The Final Trailer To KONG: SKULL ISLAND!

You know what? I love me a good monster mash. And the more and more we get to see of KONG: SKULL ISLAND, the more I feel like we’re going to get something ridiculously fun, loaded with all sorts of various monsters and creatures going at it. I mean, the film has to reintroduce King […]

Terror Toys: Five Horror Franchises Worthy of Their Own Action Figures

Toys. Action Figures. Collectibles. If there’s a movie or TV series with even a modicum of popularity, chances are there’s some form of plastic totem, ranging from the cute and kitschy Funko figures to the insanely articulated and intricate work from Hot Toys. But while superhero franchises and sci-fi blockbusters take up a sizable chunk of real estate at […]

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD Without Special Effects Will Make Your Day

It’s hard to believe we waited 30 years for director George Miller to continue the MAD MAX franchise with his 4th chapter in the post-apocalyptic saga, FURY ROAD. But thankfully, in 2015, his vision was realized and the movie came and exceeded all of our expectations, primarily for it’s incredible & bonkers stunt work. Now, […]

Watch the World’s Most Epic Dad Turn His Four-Year-Old Into an Action Movie Star

This has been a pretty rough week for all of us, so I thought maybe I could do my small part to help by ushering a little awesomeness into your weekend. As kids, we’ve always imagined ourselves as our favorite movie, TV and comic book heroes when we’re playing with our toys (and by “toys” […]

The Deadly Art Of Illusion! A Double Feature Of F/X and F/X 2!

I have to tell you, Kino Lorber is quickly becoming one of my favorite specialty labels. They’ve been putting out so many of my favorite horror films from the tail end of the VHS boom. Just last week, I talked about their release of HIGHWAY TO HELL. This week, for my double take, I took […]

Slashback! Future Celebs Line Up for Slaughter in 1983’s THE FINAL TERROR

As an unashamed fan of slasher cinema, I’m not one to look down my nose at early horror roles taken by actors who have moved on to relative celebrity status, and I hate those condescending “crappy movies famous actors would like to forget” type of stories… at least when it comes to this genre. Besides, most horror fans […]

Nothing Can Prepare You For The Action Packed Double Bill Of DANGEROUS MEN & DEADLY PREY!

For this week’s double take, I didn’t watch two horror movies. My buddy Scott Reynolds instead suggested on doing a double feature of DANGEROUS MEN, paired up with DEADLY PREY and insisted that this toxic combination of cinematic madness would absolutely blow my mind in the same way that some of my recent genre discoveries […]

SLAYER Unleash Brutal New Video For “You Against You”

SLAYER is back with the second music video from their latest album “Repentless,” and as we uncovered in our interview with Felissa Rose a few months back, director BJ McDonnell (HATCHET III) who helmed the previous self-titled video is back and this is the 2nd of an intended trilogy of SLAYER videos. The “Repentless” video […]

Is HARDCORE HENRY The Must-See Movie Of The Year?

Holy smokes! Besides these 2 trailers, I know next to nothing about HARDCORE HENRY or the people involved with the making of this movie. But as you’re about to see, it immediately has shot up to the top of my must-see list for the year. It looks part-ROBOCOP, part-CRANK and full-on lunacy. Before we delve […]
