The CREEPSHOW Graphic Novel Is Now Back In Print!

This is just awesome news! I’ve had horror anthologies on the brain quite a bit lately. Part of it has to do with our recent episode of Shock Waves where we built our own perfect horror anthologies by picking our favorites segments and wrap-around stories.

How Does One Build The “Perfect” Horror Anthology? One Segment At A Time!

Horror anthologies. Everyone loves ’em. And what’s fun about them is debating, after the fact, about which segments were the strongest, scariest, most fun, etc. It’s also easily the most subjective sub-genre within horror. You and your friends can all sit in and watch the same anthology, and yet each of you will more than […]

Trick Or Treat Studios Preps CREEPSHOW Crate Monster Mask!

Masks are a thing I wish I had the space and money to actively collect.

Back when I was barely a […]

Monsters that Are Also Plants: Eleven Plant-Based Movie Monsters

Since the beginning, horror stories have bent over backwards to find new things to make you afraid of. A great horror story will tap into a deep-rooted universal fear shared by all members of humanity. We all fear dying or being killed, for instance, so most horror stories feature murders.

10 Franchises We’d Love To See As Comic Books

Growing up, my two greatest loves were horror movies and comic books. So when Marvel very briefly flirted with doing a series based on A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, it was nirvana for me! (Read all about it here.) Although cancelled after 2 issues, other comic companies in the early 90’s picked up the mantle […]
