It’s small, but effective. How many times have you had to explain that in your life? Personally I never have (ahem), but this time I will because I’m talking about the poster for Carter Smith’s The Ruins.
Much like the movie, the figure based on the monster seen in Cloverfield (review) was met with mixed opinions (“Hasbro's Cloverfield Monster Figure Revealed” – February 2008). The toy just didn't quite look like what we saw in the film.
Teen horror dramas rarely turn out good. Teeth (review) is one of those few occasions where the whole WB/CW audience was ignored and someone made just a badass movie. It looks like Paramount Pictures may have taken a page out of the same book.
Jack Brooks is an ordinary guy with a lot of rage inside. When he one day accidentally unleashes an ancient evil, he must become a slayer of monsters in order to protect the world.
Color me curious about this one! Most of us were waiting for this figure if only to get a good look at the beast itself! I must admit when Hasbro announced they had the license, I was a bit worried. Would it be a true representation, or would it be dumbed down a bit and made to look cutesy?
We all know that the WGA strike is tarring up the production of some horror movies, but what about the ones that were already in production before the movement? Where do J.T. Petty’s films stand right now?
It’s not often that a film is able to slip under our radar for too long, so imagine my surprise when reader Gilbert dropped us a line with a heads up about a new Aussie horror/action hybrid called The Dark Lurking.
It’s not easy for a film to sneak up on us these days, what with all the festivals going on right now that are usually full of flicks we’ve been waiting months for, but Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer kinda took me by surprise, I will admit.
It sure is strange in this day and age to hear about a major toy creator making the official toy for a horror/ monster movie as opposed to, say, your Sideshow or Gentle Giant. Apparently the makers of Cloverfield just wanted to make sure their figure gets into as many places as possible.
I really can’t wait to see if the upcoming horror movie staring Finish monsters Lordi, Dark Floors, is worth all the attention we’ve been piling on it so far. I mean, it’s nowhere near a U.S. release date and we’re talking about it at least once a week. I guess I’m just a sucker for monsters.

Three days to go until we find out if Cloverfield will live up to all the hype. Odd though that we haven't seen much in the way of mass marketing this week (aside from the creature spoilers I refuse to run ... as I want to keep the beast a secret). However, AOL/Moviefone did put up a video today that lets us get to know the character of Marlena a little more. There's no carnage or beasties, but it's something...
The first semi-clear look at the Cloverfield monster is finally online, and Daily Motion got it exclusively. Keep in mind, I said it’s semi clear, no big reveals here… but they’re right when they say “it’s alive, it’s huge!”. Check it out below! Cloverfield opens eveywhere on Friday, January 18th!
