A Six-Pack of Lionsgate Horrors

Good old Lionsgate; their DVD division can always be counted on to provide us with a constant supply of low budget fright flicks. Today I decided to help spread the word about six of the more low profile Lionsgate straight-to-DVD horror offerings coming in the next three months, starting from June and working backwards. Good news: none of them are new movies from Ulli Lommel.

Event Report: Monster-Mania 10!

Comic Preview: The Darkness #3

Jackie Estacado is the heir to The Darkness, a power allowing him to create things out of the purest black of night…things that often bite.

When he’s sent in, nothing is left but pulp.

C.H.U.D. Remake Writer Clarifies Rumors

I purposely avoided doing any story on this new C.H.U.D. remake rumor that showed up yesterday because A) it was April Fool’s Day and B) we’ve been burned by C.H.U.D. stuff before. This morning, though, B-D has a chat up with the writers of the upcoming remake, Ian Malone and Andrew Goring, so we're going forward assuming it's all legit.
