In Honor of George A. Romero, Check Out This “Masters of Horror” Documentary Segment

We’re all still reeling over the loss of George A. Romero.

Dia de los Muertos Meets Lowbrow: The Unique Art of David Lozeau

A few weeks ago at Phoenix Comic Con, I was walking through the aisles of art, when something caught my eye. It was a booth full of skeleton art.

QUIZ: Which of These Horror Classics Has Been Remade?

Despite an increasing exhaustion with the trend, the continuous remaking of well-known films (usually the ones  that were seminal to Gen-Xers) persists. Many, many studios, resting comfortably on a bed of brand-name recognition, have forced us to re-watch, re-analyze, and reconsider just about anything even vaguely recognizable to a mass audience. It’s easy to see […]

Analyzing George A. Romero’s Evolution Of The Dead

These days it’s hard to believe that cinematic zombies were created by one filmmaker.  George Romero has made it clear that never set out to invent “zombies.”  To him, zombies were the wide-eyed, lumbering voodoo victims in old Bela Lugosi movies.  The reanimated corpses in NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, on the other hand, were […]
