Now, kids, this is why you should never take up the life of a graphitti artist. Too much running around, too many chances to get caught, and of course there’s the ever-present danger of half human creatures living in the subways below whatever city you do your work in.
I do have to say I have a soft spot for monster movies. It’s the kid in me, really. You could have the most boring premise in the world but as soon as the word “monster” is uttered, you’ve got my attention. Thus the reason I took note of a press release we got this past weekend for a new film called Scourge, directed by Sasquatch and Ripper II helmer Jonas Quastel.
Over the next couple weeks we are going to be taking a closer look into WizKids' world of HorrorClix, the newest spin-off of their HeroClix gaming line. But first, let's get you all acquainted with what the whole Clix thing is about.
On the set of David Gregory’s Plague Town last night (more on that later), I got to chatting with one of the makeup effects guys on the project, and he made mention of having worked with J.T. Petty on a project recently, something called “Red Earth”.
I’ve been seeing bits and pieces about this flick around for a few months now, but never really looked into it until now. And damn I’m glad I did!
Man, let me tell you, whoever is behind all this secrecy surrounding Cloverfield (or whatever it will eventually be called) they sure are doing a damn good job of keeping things confusing so far.
A few months back I wrote an article about information I'd received from an insider source regarding an upcoming Sci-Fi Channel original movie premiering later this month called Mega Snake. In that article I bemoaned how I never get scoops on any big screen movies, just direct-to-DVD and Sci-Fi Channel stuff.
Wow, what a wacky concept! Okay, try and stay with me here; the pitch is a buddy cop show, right? But in a “hilariously horrifying” twist, the buddies are dedicated to bringing vampires, werewolves, and other creatures of the night to justice! My God what a great, original concept!
Now here's a movie after my own heart - Creature from the Hillbilly Lagoon. A group of college students run afoul of a band of inbred rednecks, but making matters worse is the gillman monster spawned from toxic waste dumped into a nearby lagoon. Expect plenty of cheap, cheesy, gory, gooey, rubber-suited fishman on a rampage action. They don't make enough movies of this ilk for my take, and when they do they're usually of the Rana, The Legend of Shadow Lake variety.

Maybe I’m just weird, but if I were in a situation in which I had to face the very real possibility of being eaten alive by nasty underground creatures, I think I would be at peace with that.
Not too long we told you about the ballsy Asian horror movie The Host (review) pulling out all the stops by jumping on every available DVD format right here. Though the news about the film having four different releases come July 24th is old, the cover art for the discs is not. Here is a rundown of what you will be able to find on each disc type:
So recently you may recall we showed you the first piece of teaser art from J.T. (Soft for Digging, Mimic: Sentinel) Petty’s upcoming monster movie, The Burrowers (see it here), a movie that’s been in one form of pre-production or another for years now, but we’ve never lost track of.
