51 Worst Horror Movie Cliches

If spending a lifetime watching horror films has taught us anything, it's the basic tools for survival that would apply to just about any kind of hellish situation.

Video Dread Exclusive: Igor Writer & Director

A few weeks back myself and some of the East Coast Dread crew, including Nomad and the fantastic Heather Buckley, hit up the New York Comic Con to get our horror mugs filled to the brim with info.

B-Movie Overload: All Monsters Great & Small

Sometimes I come across a slew of B-movie news items that for various reasons don't always seem to warrant their own individual stories. Such is the case here as I once again present ten different B-movie news items about everything ranging from Godzilla lawsuits to low budget monster movie mayhem, with such notable names ranging from Tiffany Shepis to Ulli Lommel, all consolidated into one enormous news update I call the B-Movie Overload. Are you ready? START!
