In Honor Of THE MUMMY, Revisit The Greatest AMAZING STORIES Episode!

This Friday, Universal Pictures launches their new Dark Universe series of films with THE MUMMY, and just like when any franchise re-emerges, it puts me in the mood to revisit all the other interpretations of that franchise. So, needless to say, I’ve been in Mummy mode all month! Both the original “Complete Legacy Collection” with […]

Universal Pictures Announces DARK UNIVERSE Starting With THE MUMMY; BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN Is Up Next!

We’ve always known that THE MUMMY has been intended to kick off yet another monster-based “shared” universe, which quite frankly, is something the original Universal Monster movies did to begin with. I always kind of appreciate that each sequel would pick up where ever the last one left off (like The Wolfman and Frankenstein’s monster […]

Meet Dr. Jekyll In This New Featurette For THE MUMMY!

If there’s one thing I love, it’s the Universal Monster Movies. They were, after all, my earliest recollections of the horror genre, and what turned me into the horror fanatic I am now. I rather like the various updates and reinterpretations we’ve seen over the years. Francis Ford Coppola’s 1992 DRACULA is a visual feast. […]

Here’s The Second Trailer For THE MUMMY With Tom Cruise!

Another trailer surprise this weekend! Universal Studios new version of THE MUMMY is quite a curiosity. I mean, this is the studio that for many decades housed all the world famous Universal monsters in their library. They’re a bit part of “Universal” as a brand. And now, they’re looking to relaunch the Universal Monsters in […]

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 […]

Is This New MUMMY A “Horror” Movie… Or What?

It’s been in the works for a while now, but for the last several years, Universal Studios has been looking for the appropriate way to relaunch their series of world-famous monsters. It hasn’t been easy. Francis Ford Coppola’s DRACULA was a stellar and proper adaptation of the original Bram Stoker book, but that came out […]

Tom Cruise to Star in Universal’s THE MUMMY Reboot

Universal is bringing THE MUMMY back for a franchise reboot. The monster was originally kicked off in 1932 as part of the Universal monster frenzy. This incarnation is rumored to be courting mega-star Tom Cruise for an acting role. No word yet on what role he may be playing, but I’m going to guess it will be the lead. The […]

Talkin’ Tracks – LEGEND

“I require the solace of the shadows and the dark of the night. Sunshine is my destroyer” – Darkness (LEGEND, 1985) When it comes right down to it, one of the earliest movie memories I have that sticks in my mind is of Tim Curry as the character ‘Darkness’ in the Ridley Scott fantasy classic […]
