Cthulhu, Is That You? These Real-Life Cosmic Horrors Are Happening Right Now

I don’t have to remind you that we’re living in chaotic, unpredictable and even frightening times… hell, even browsing through news headlines can make you want to crawl under a rock and hide for a year or so (that is, unless you’re afraid of creatures who also like to live under rocks). As connoisseurs of […]

The Doomed Generation: The Apocalyptic Cinema of Gregg Araki

In the opening scenes of Gregg Araki’s THE LIVING END, Luke (Mike Dytri) — a leather-clad, whiskey-swilling buff beefcake and bona fide psychopath with a death-wish — dances in the sun-scorched desert, while Jon (Craig Gilmore) — a film-critic who rips other people’s work apart for 25 cents a word — receives news of an […]

ALIENS, FLATLINERS and SAW: LEGACY – This Week’s Horror News Rundown

There is a bit of a dead zone every July, when it seems like every major entertainment outlet is trying not to reveal any news because they’re going to try to announce something big at Comic-Con. So this week’s Horror News Rundown is a little shorter than usual, but we’ve still got some cool news […]

Giving #RESPECT To Agent Smith From I COME IN PEACE For Not Being A Total Weenie

Did you know that I COME IN PEACE is almost solely responsible for me picking up and moving across the country from New York to California without a second thought? OK, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration, but it’s not that far off from the truth! First of all, the Dolph Lundgren fronted 1990 sci-fi cult […]

Your ALIEN, PREDATOR and TERMINATOR Trivia is Wrong!

Some movie trivia is so ridiculously well known that I don’t even think it deserves to qualify as “trivia” anymore. By now we all know that Michael Myers’ mask from the original HALLOWEEN was just an off-the-rack Captain Kirk mask, painted white. And we’ve probably all heard that the blood in Alfred Hitchcock’s PSYCHO was […]

The Evolution Of Ellen Ripley!

With this past Tuesday being officially christened ALIEN DAY, we’ve all had the franchise on the brain pretty much all week. Everyone’s doing their part to celebrate in their own way, whether it be by hosting their own ALIEN marathons, attending screenings or indulging in whatever new collectibles were created specifically for this new “holiday.” […]
