Legions of Horrific Alien Creatures Found Near Undersea Volcanoes

We’re always simultaneously horrified and delighted to learn about the discovery of new monstrous creatures on this planet we share — and more often than not, the scariest of them seem to come from Australia (for example, this giant spider named “Brian”) or from the blackest depths of the world’s oceans (like… whatever the hell […]

Giving #RESPECT To Everyone’s Favorite Android, Bishop!

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. We’ve paid tribute to men, women and even dogs in […]

You Know You Want To Smoke Out Of These Horror Icon Pipes

Happy 420! This particular celebration doesn’t mean a whole lot to me as I don’t smoke. I’m a drinker, but I can appreciate how excited a lot of my friends get that are smokers. And quite frankly, if I were to pop over to their houses today and one of them pulled out the following […]

H.R. Giger’s ALIEN VS SPECIES! Who Would Win?

What is it about the xenomorphs from the ALIEN franchise that make fans so excited to see them pitted against other monsters, creatures and superheroes? Cinematically, after much reluctance from 20th Century Fox, we finally got two ALIEN VS PREDATOR movies, both hugely successful and both not nearly as good as any of their comic […]

With Teeth: Ten H.R. Giger ALIEN Inspired Creatures

As a tribute to H.R. Giger I thought it would be interesting to pull together ten spinoffs of his classic ALIEN creature. Some will refer to them as rip-offs, but as a fan of monsters I see them as inspired art. These designs show how Giger’s surrealist xenomorphic design changed, fueled and influenced the face […]

12 More Gravesites of Famous Horror Icons

The tourism shall continue. Recently, Blumhouse published an article directing enthused (and respectful) fans of horror to the burial sites of some of the genre’s best-known luminaries. Many of them are interred in Los Angeles, making visits to the City of Angels ripe for horror tourism. Others were cremated and scattered overseas. But seeking out […]

Scream Factory Ready To Unleash The SPECIES Sequels To Blu-Ray!

I think it’s time for us all to revisit the SPECIES series. The first movie hit cinemas in 1995 from director Roger Donaldson and writer by Dennis Feldman and featured an all new alien creature designed by the great H.R. Giger, whom of course is most well known for his classic Xenomorph creation in Ridley […]
