The Long, Sad History Of SUPERMAN (Almost) On Film

For us comic nerds, we live in truly wonderful times. Superheroes are taking over the screen, both big and small with Marvel’s incredibly long run of critical and financial hits, as well as DC’s burgeoning film universe and solid TV shows.

Groove To The Sweet Sounds Of The PHANTASM Theme Remixed By Nightcrawler!

It’s impossible not to immediately think of the soundtrack to a horror flick when I say the words HALLOWEEN or PSYCHO or THE EXORCIST.

We Chat With PHANTASM Writer/Director Don Coscarelli!

Don Coscarelli is not only one of our favorite filmmakers in the genre, but in our humble opinion also one of the most underrated of the “Masters Of Horror” gang. His last 2 films alone, JOHN DIES AT THE END and BUBBA HO-TEP are as vibrant, radical and fun as his horror debut PHANTASM was […]

Remembering The Electronic CLOVERFIELD Toy That Roared To Life In 2008

Heading into 2016, I think it’s safe to say that nobody expected they’d soon be buying a ticket for a movie with the word CLOVERFIELD in the title. Completely out of nowhere, J.J. Abrams and his company Bad Robot unleashed the trailer for 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE upon the world earlier this month and Abrams describes […]
