Escape From Development Hell: The Lost Adventures of Snake Plissken

Despite Snake Plissken’s status as one of the most iconic anti-heroes in genre cinema, he hasn’t had that many outings. Since arriving in 1981’s ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK he’s fronted two movies and some comic spin-offs, but little else. It says a lot about Kurt Russell’s performance and the world John Carpenter crafted around him […]

Rediscovering SOMETHING EVIL — Steven Spielberg’s “Lost” Film!

Long before Steven Spielberg found his groove directing award-winning biopics and big-budget family films, it seemed like — if only for a moment — the young auteur might settle comfortably into a life of delivering audiences straight up genre pictures.

Remembering Obscure 1965 Grindhouse Classic WHO KILLED TEDDY BEAR

Recently, an acquaintance of mine posted a thread to Facebook about “lost classics.” The term, he felt, was quickly losing meaning. Amidst the current boom of interest in grindhouse cinema and straight-to-VHS-horror, the term “forgotten” had become synonymous with “quality,” to the point every film released between 1960 and 1990 that has since slipped into […]

A Rare Glimpse at Kurt Cobain’s Homemade Horror Movies

Nirvana was one of the defining bands of the 1990s, and a staple in the CD players of Generation X-ers like myself. The day lead singer Kurt Cobain shot himself to death is still a fresh memory, even more than twenty years later. It plays like a horror movie in my mind: coming home from […]

We’re literally digging into the vaults of cinema history for our next original creepypasta short: specifically, the earliest days of experimental filmmaking, avant-garde art and the surrealist movement that reached a peak in the 1920s, thanks in part to the larger-than-life personalities of eccentric geniuses like Salvador Dali and Luis Buñuel. Among these pioneers of […]

The Creepy Story Behind the Infamous “Lost in the Catacombs” Video

Long before it gained worldwide viral notoriety, the footage you’re about to see was part of a documentary which aired in slightly different versions on multiple TV networks in the early 2000s — most notably a Halloween special on ABC Family (now Freeform) and SCARIEST PLACES ON EARTH on the Sci-Fi Channel (now SyFy). The […]

Unlike some of our previous creepypasta entries involving mysterious “lost episodes” of various TV programs, this week’s subject focuses on an individual blogger whose obsession with a never-aired kids’ series led him on a doomed journey into insanity… and unspeakable horror.

Fear of the Unknown: Ten Horror Titles That Almost Were!

Back when horror sites quickly usurped the throne of horror movie scoops from print fright mags, you could rarely go a day without hearing some kind of rumor surrounding your favorite horror properties.

Seven “Lost” Horror Films That Fans Are Dying to See

I’m fascinated with lost and obscure films, with trying to track down movies that are unusual, rarely seen, or that might not exist at all. In the age of the Internet, when every movie is instantly saved, copied and disseminated (sometimes before they’re even released), it’s easy to forget that in the olden days, works […]

The True Story Behind the Legendary “Lost Ending” of THE SHINING

Stanley Kubrick’s THE SHINING has one hell of an ending: maniac Jack Torrance’s frozen grimace, followed by the slow push-in on the antique photograph on the Overlook Hotel wall, is one of the most memorable one-two gut-punches in film history. But Kubrick’s original version of the film included another scene inserted between these two iconic […]
