The 1986 thriller F/X was one of my absolute favorite films of the Eighties. Anyone who has seen it and remembers it can pretty much vouch that it was the goods. There's been talk of a remake happening for some time now, and now there's a little bit of new chatter to report on.
Having followed the antics of the many incarnations of the blurry photographed cryptid most commonly known as Bigfoot throughout my life, I have heard of his Missouri counterpart, Momo. I had not heard that the Sasquatchian hominid known as "Momo" was said to have the head of a jack o'lantern. That I would have remembered. But now that I know, I have to wonder why it has taken so long to make a motion picture about pumpkin-headed Bigfoot.
Every good slasher needs a hook - sometimes literally (i.e., I Know What You Did Last Summer). It's all about the look, the location, and/or the weapon of choice. The Caretaker killer is... Well, the title tells you his occupation. He appears to have a unique harvesting tool as his designated instrument of death.
For the New Year the Dreadtime Players thought it might be cool to air our "Pilot Episode," the one that got us green-lit. Simple old-school terror reigns as a woman finds herself alone at night with a maniac loose in the neighborhood. We hope you enjoy our first effort, "The Caller."
With IM Global/Bombshell Pictures' gleefully titillating feature Bitch Slap bowing today in limited theatrical release and via Video on Demand, this scribe sat down recently with the makers and stars of the film to discuss their ‘guns, boobs, and brawls’ opus and was thrilled to do so.
There's a new ghost hunter in town, and his name is Jason Dark. He's here to face the horrors, the demons, the vampires, the werecreatures, and every other diabolical monster imaginable on behalf of a more civilized world.
William Shatner. Not since his iconic portrayal of Captain James Tiberius Kirk has he ever played as ridiculously masculine a character as he did in Kingdom of the Spiders. His character's name? "Rack" Hansen. That's right, "Rack" Friggin' Hansen, and he can take out your stupid eye and steal your woman with nothing more than a mere glance shot your way via his razor sharp animal magnetism!
Finally vampires get their fangs this Friday as Lionsgate's Daybreakers opens up wide in theatres! How does it fare?
How many of us remember shelling out the dough to get our hands on the last A Nightmare on Elm Street box set? At over a hundred bucks it was pretty steep but worth it if only for the "Nightmare Encyclopedia" disc. To go along with the original film's Blu-ray release, Warner Home Video and New Line are re-issuing the box set ... but something is pretty friggin' amiss.
You’ve seen the Bitch Slap girls go wild, but they have a softer side too. Watch as Trixie (Julia Voth), Hel (Erin Cummings), and Camero (America Olivo) show you the many ways they help their community and how they might even save the world.
One of our favorite flicks of last year, Ti West's retro thriller The House of the Devil, is finally coming home to DVD and Blu-ray on February 2, 2010, and to celebrate its release, one hell of a cool promo item has been sent out to us lucky bastards!
Trembles is taking a well deserved two-week break from churning out new editions of his Motion Picture Purgatory so he sent over a blast from the past review of 1975's cult classic Thundercrack.
Never mind the remake which is looming over all of our heads like a black cloud of crap and distress -- the original big horror daddy Wes Craven classic is about to make its jump to Blu-ray high definition, and we've got the scoop on what to expect!
And just like the unstoppable freight train of violence that Victor Crowley proved to be in the first film, cameras have officially begun rolling on the Hatchet sequel, and there ain't no stopping until every set is painted with the red stuff.
The second season of Toby Whithouse's stellar Being Human premieres in the UK this Sunday, and if you're anything like me, you can't get enough of this show about three twenty-something housemates trying to live normal lives, despite the fact that one is a werewolf, one is a vampire, and the other is a ghost. If so, you're in luck because on February 4th three novels that tie in to Being Human are being released by BBC Books.
