ANACONDA Turns 20 This Month!

It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since J-Lo put her dukes up to tangle with a 40-foot anaconda. What’s even harder to believe is the fact that just about everyone in the production survived this epic bomb (AKA so terrible it’s glorious) of a flick. Jennifer Lopez went on to pump out a […]

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 […]

We Chat With SiREN Director Gregg Bishop!

Like most horror fans, I love anthologies. And sometimes, a segment in an anthology can be so indelible that it makes you long to see an expanded version of that story. For V/H/S, the opening short “Amateur Night” helmed by David Bruckner, 1/3rd of the filmmaking trio behind 2007’s THE SIGNAL, is one of my […]

Dig In: The FEAST Trilogy Deserves Your Love

I consider myself one of the lucky. I, along with my friend Lisa, got to see FEAST in the theater. It was at the Mann’s Chinese 6 in Hollywood and there was a Q&A afterwards. Director John Gulager was super open about making the movie and how much he butted heads with the producers, much […]

THE HORROR OF PARTY BEACH! Let’s Kill Again Like We Did Last Summer

“Out of the sea THEY came …transforming a carefree, twisting and frolic-filled teen age beach party into a nightmare” of blood and tattered bikinis. Welcome to THE HORROR OF PARTY BEACH – a “new” kind of cinema – the world’s first monster movie musical – or so the producers claimed. The year is 1964 and […]

Geena Davis Almost Produced The Sequel FLIES?!

On this week’s episode of the Shock Waves podcast, we had very special guests “masters of horror” Mick Garris and William Malone on the show. On top of being huge horror fans themselves, Mick was one of the credited screenwriters on 1989’s THE FLY II and William owns the light board from Dr. Delambre’s laboratory […]

The Most Must-Own Collectibles Coming Out On ALIEN Day

Whether it’s National Cat Day or National Corn Dog Day, it seems like every day has been turned into its own little mini celebration of SOMETHING. But very rarely do movies get their own days, with Star Wars Day (May 4th) being the only notable exception. Well, it WAS the only notable exception, but that […]

Let’s Look At Van Damme As The Original PREDATOR Again

One of the many confirmed myths behind-the-scenes of genre history is that, originally, John McTernan’s 1987 film, PREDATOR, was intended to be an Arnold Schwarzenegger versus Jean-Claude Van Damme movie. Van Damme wasn’t the martial arts action star we know today at that time. BLOODSPORT didn’t happen until 1988, followed by KICKBOXER in 1989. This is now common […]

All Of Our #RESPECT To Vincent Price In THE FLY Movies

Sometimes, there are characters in genre pictures that are so darned righteous and awesome, you can’t stop thinking about them or their amazing feats long after the movie is over. This column is dedicated to those cinematic bad-asses that keep us coming back for more. And here’s one that, most likely, is going to appear […]
