The Strangest, Creepiest YouTube Channels of All Time

YouTube is a bottomless well of the collective unconscious: If you dig around, you’ll discover sad things, wonderful things, and deeply strange things. Even when it’s not trying to be, YouTube is often an unnerving place. The following collection of creepy YouTube channels mixes intentionally spooky content with channels that may have some other purpose, but succeed […]

Who Killed THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN’s Girlfriend Gwen Stacy?

In the near 80 years of superhero comics, there are surprisingly few character deaths that stand out, mainly because comics keep bringing characters back to life. Hell, Marvel’s Jean Grey has died and come back so many times that it is a running gag in the X-Men books at this point. When it comes down […]

Five Horror Movies ALMOST Directed by Tobe Hooper

This history of the horror genre is one littered with “almosts” — those movie and director match-ups that came so close to happening, but never saw the light of day. In some alternate reality, there are movie theaters and drive-ins in the ‘80s playing Joe Dante’s HALLOWEEN III and John Carpenter’s FIRESTARTER; George Romero should […]

Stuart Gordon’s Unmade IRON MAN: When The “Masters Of Horror” Almost Made MARVEL Movies

As someone that grew up an avid reader of comic books, we are currently living in glorious times. Most of my favorites have all already graced the silver screen, and they’ll pretty much continue to do so for the next decade. But there was a time when it seemed like we’d never get a live-action […]

The SPIDER-MAN / HULK TV Movie That Almost Was!

Marvel may be the masters of the superhero cinematic universe right now with their multi-connecting blockbuster event movies every year, but there was a time when their most successful adaptations lay in the confines of the TV landscape. That glorious time was the late 70’s! In 1977, CBS had produced the first live-action version of […]

Summer Reading: Catch Up On Some Great Comics

Summer. A time for sitting in the sun on a beach, or if you’re more like me, hiding away in a dark room with stacks of comic books. We, the ones David Wain and Michael Showalter so aptly named “the indoor kids” have a love for the four color page, and we enjoy it no […]

The 10 Funniest Quotes From the DEADPOOL Comic

A DEADPOOL article!? Now?! Isn’t that the sort of thing you put out when there’s big news in the DEADPOOL world? It’s been months since the Blu-Ray came out and even longer since the “Merc With The Mouth” has been in theaters. You’re right. There is no big news, but in the true spirit of Deadpool, I’m going […]

The Ultimate Turkish Superhero Blockbuster: 3 DEV ADAM!

Despite the tendency of superhero movies to reboot, to have differing TV versions, and to generally play fast and loose with the notion of canon, the notion of what is officially authorized is foremost in the minds of fans and of comic book creators alike. Sure, there may be literally dozens of authorized versions of […]

Superhero Reboots and Sisyphus: Keep Pushing that Boulder!

A brief primer: Sisyphus was a figure in Greek mythology who was, for his craftiness, punished by the gods by being forced to push an enormous boulder up a hill. When it reached the top, it would roll to the bottom, and he’d have to start again. Sisyphus is a symbol for futile work. This […]

Worst. Comic Book Movies. EVER.

Movies (and TV shows) based on comic books have been around since the 1940s. They are nothing new, but in the last few years, they have become insanely profitable and insanely popular. That wasn’t always the case: the 1990s and early aughts were fraught with a wide array of truly, truly terrible movies based on […]

6 Non-Soundtrack Recommendations You Have To Hear!

It’s truly a glorious time to be both a horror movie fan and a lover of soundtracks! I’ve always appreciated soundtracks to movies, in particular genre scores, because no other genre manages to ingrain itself so effortlessly with its music than “horror.” If I say HALLOWEEN, you immediately think of John Carpenter’s theme, right? Mere mention […]
