Ryan (Abominable) Schifrin’s Spooks comic is going strong, and the third issue is on its way to stands this Wednesday, April 9th!

P2 (DVD review) is out on April 8th in DVD stores everywhere, and today we got a look at an exclusive clip from the film to warm you up for the horror! In the film, Rachel Nichols stars as a woman who works late on Christmas Eve and becomes the victim of a lonely man’s twisted fantasies.
I regret that we couldn’t make it out to Philly for the world premiere of Frank Henenlotter’s Bad Biology, mainly cause I would have loved to hear the audience react to what I bet is a very fucked up movie...
Great news, gorehounds! Stephen Romano's latest work Shock Festival has just been officially picked up by IDW Publishing, and you can pre-order yourselves a copy right now!
What are you doing this Friday night? Afraid to drive out because gas prices are quickly reaching $4 a gallon? No date? Friends all got eaten by killer plants? Whatever your excuse is, it's OK. Why? Because we've got something you could be doing to stave off the boredom!
Today we got in a high-res pic of NECA's Cult Classics Series 7. The latest addition to the series is a Spiderwalking Regan from William Friedkin's 1973 classic The Exorcist.
