SDCC 08: The Birds Barbie!

Barbie Vs. The Birds? Why the hell not? I mean, Hitchcock was huge on having important female characters in most of his suspense films; maybe this is just the beginning of a new line from Mattel. A man can dream, can’t he?

SDCC 08 Exclusive: Dark Horse Relaunching AVP!

This just in from our man Andrew Kasch at the San Diego Comic-Con, who got the scoop on something many of us have been looking forward to for a while now. After the depression known as both AVP flicks, Dark Horse Comics is bringing hope back to us nerds everywhere by relaunching the comic book franchise that we've been gushing over for the past 10 years!

SDCC 08: Cthulhu Returns!

Remember SOTA? Those guys that made some really cool toys a while back and then just sort of disappeared? Well, looks like they’re ready to come back and they’re bringing a new Old One with them. Dig the photographic evidence below!

Universal Wants Your Shorts!

Oh, man, another short film competition. Though this one is definitely cooler than most as Unviersal is putting it on to coincide with this year’s Halloween Horror Nights. Uni have announced a new short film competition called “Where Nightmares Come Alive”, inviting perspective filmmakers to submit their shorts ranging in runtime from 90 seconds to three minutes. Certainly not a lot of time to get your story told, is it?

SDCC 08: Mezco's Massive Offerings!

Mezco Toys sure didn't hold back at this year's San Diego Comic-Con! The company's Cinema of Fear line just grew with the inclusion of new figures of Freddy, Jason, Leatherface and more! Did I mention that one of Mezco's new 12" figures is based on the Platinum Dunes remake of Friday the 13th?! The Mezco booth also showed off the second series of figures from the Hellboy II: The Golden Army line.

SDCC 08: First Look at Coraline Figures!

Continuing to show off all NECA has to offer at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, Nomad ran across their display of puppets from the upcoming stop-motion animated film Coraline, based on the book by Neil Gaiman. These aren't the figures NECA will make, but the actual puppets used in the actual film. Very cool! Apparently he went a little insane with the images this time, so there’s a lot to sift through. Enjoy!

SDCC 08: New Exorcist & Beetlejuice Figures

SDCC 08: NECA's Superbeasto Figures

Of course, NECA would get the license to make figures based on Rob Zombie’s upcoming animated film The Haunted World of El Superbeasto. They’ve done well with Zombie’s films in the past, so it only makes sense.

Rocky Horror Remake

Now this might go down in history as one of the worst ideas in Hollywood history; remaking The Rocky Horror Picture Show. I mean, seriously, is this necessary? The original has been annoying me since it was released in 1975, why do we need another take on it?
