Unseen Horrors: The 1995 Unmade Version Of THE MUMMY By Mick Garris!

This past weekend, Universal Pictures launched their proposed and ambitious slate of upcoming monster movies, currently being touted under the banner of the “Dark Universe,” with the Tom Cruise fronted THE MUMMY.

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 […]

Remember These Original DAWN OF THE DEAD Action Figures?

With NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, George Romero quite literally created zombies as we know them today. Ten years later, he locked his flesh-eating creations inside of a shopping mall in DAWN OF THE DEAD, a sequel that proved to be every bit as innovative and important as its predecessor.

5 Stephen King Adaptations That Died In Development Hell

For forty years, Stephen King’s stories have been translated to the screen with almost as much frequency as Shakespeare’s.  Judging by reports of current projects in development, that trend isn’t going to stop anytime soon.  And if history is any indication, new adaptations will be re-imagined several times before we get to see them on […]

7 Great Zombie Movies Without Zombies

No horror movie scenario is more ubiquitous these days than George Romero’s zombie apocalypse.  While most horror fans know that Romero didn’t conceive his living dead as “zombies”—zombies, to him, were the voodoo slaves of Bela Lugosi in poverty row quickies like WHITE ZOMBIE and KING OF THE ZOMBIES—fewer realize that the filmmaker doesn’t believe his […]

DOUBLE TAKE – NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD 1968 / 1990

To me, the key to a truly great “remake” of a pre-existing horror film is simple. Would the new update make a good double feature with the original movie? When it comes to programming a double bill, the goal is to find two movies with a similar theme that would complement each other. And there’s […]
