Monsters Make News: Human Re-Animation, “Real” JURASSIC PARK and More Harrowing Headlines

It’s been quite the intense struggle keeping up with all the bizarre and horrifying things making the news lately (and that’s not counting political news, which is a horror unto itself), but as always, instead of hiding from things that creep me out, I tend to charge headlong into them. This week, of course, is […]

George A. Romero Wrote a Zombie Noir Film Called ENOUGH OF THE DEAD!

In 1968, George A. Romero cobbled together a low budget horror movie about corpses that came back to life and started eating people. It sounds absurd when you put it like that – probably because that’s exactly what it is – but the idea gradually took hold of the imaginations of audiences and filmmakers everywhere. […]

You Know Who Deserves Our #RESPECT? Andy From DAWN OF THE DEAD 2004

Just this past weekend, I was fortunate enough to catch George Romero’s landmark zombie epic DAWN OF THE DEAD on the big-screen (and in 3D!) as part of the programming for this year’s annual Beyond Fest. (Report here.) Ever since that screening, I’ve had the 2004 remake in my brain and the urge to give it […]

BEYOND FEST Premiered DAWN OF THE DEAD 3D… And We Were There!

Back in 2008, it was announced that producer Richard Rubinstein was in the early stages of converting George A. Romero’s zombie masterpiece DAWN OF THE DEAD into a 3D version. At the time, he had teamed with a Korea-based company called Stereo Pictures Media, Inc to test out several minutes of footage to see what […]

Live Through THE WALKING DEAD At Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights!

Not only has THE WALKING DEAD become a huge part of pop culture, but it’s also been a very prominent aspect of Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights for the last couple of years now. On some years, it’s acted as one of the horror mazes at the park. Other times it’s been featured as a part […]

CREEPYPASTA: The Horrific Case of the UK’s Secret “Blood-Freezing Experiment”

Many creepypasta fans are familiar with the nightmarish tale of the infamous “Russian Sleep Experiment,” which shares the top of the list with Slender Man, CANDLE COVE and Jeff the Killer as one of the most enduring viral web legends [you can read more about those here]. But not as many people have heard the horrifying […]

Check Out the Brutal & Bittersweet Zombie Short Film WE TOGETHER

Zombie films have often been used to make larger statements about society. NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD had messages about war and race, DAWN OF THE DEAD echoed questions of consumerism, and SHAWN OF THE DEAD covers the banality of our day to day lives. Today’s short WE TOGETHER (by Henry Kaplan) adds to the “symbolic living dead” […]

5 Reasons To Upgrade Your RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD Blu-Ray

At this point, as an avid horror movie collector, there’s a handful of titles that we’ve all bought several times over. You know what I’m talking about, right? Show of hands for anyone that’s picked up multiple copies of HALLOWEEN, THE EVIL DEAD, or THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE? Another title I think I’ve gotten on every format has […]

THE HORROR OF PARTY BEACH! Let’s Kill Again Like We Did Last Summer

“Out of the sea THEY came …transforming a carefree, twisting and frolic-filled teen age beach party into a nightmare” of blood and tattered bikinis. Welcome to THE HORROR OF PARTY BEACH – a “new” kind of cinema – the world’s first monster movie musical – or so the producers claimed. The year is 1964 and […]

Analyzing George A. Romero’s Evolution Of The Dead

These days it’s hard to believe that cinematic zombies were created by one filmmaker.  George Romero has made it clear that never set out to invent “zombies.”  To him, zombies were the wide-eyed, lumbering voodoo victims in old Bela Lugosi movies.  The reanimated corpses in NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, on the other hand, were […]

The GOOSEBUMPS Movie Is Nearly Perfect, Except For These 2 Things…

For me personally, GOOSEBUMPS (the books and show) were a bit after my time, so I knew nothing about R.L. Stine’s various horrific stories, or the property in general other than the very basics. So ideally, in regards to the movie adaptation fronted by Jack Black and helmed by Rob Letterman, I was the target […]

Artist Remakes ’80s Line of Kenner’s GHOSTBUSTERS Monster Toys!

The movie was remade, so why not the toys?! Released in June of 1984, the original GHOSTBUSTERS was a smash hit at the box office, going on to become the second highest-grossing film of that year and eventually spawning a media franchise that has continually become more and more popular in the past 30+ years.
