B-Sides: Carrie Rages On

If you think a lot of people have been questioning the point of (another) Carrie remake, then imagine what those crazy little voices were saying in 1999 when The Rage: Carrie 2 opened in theaters. A sequel to Carrie that Stephen King wasn’t involved with coming 23 years after the original film? Huh?

Exclusive Opening Night Event Coverage: Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare

We gave you a preview of the haunts at Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare, and Dread Central ventured back out to the Fairplex in Pomona, CA, for the red carpet and opening night festivities.

B-Sides: Look at Me When Charles Bronson Is Shooting You at 10 to Midnight

A naked serial killer is terrorizing Los Angeles, murdering a plethora of beautiful young women. But now he’s targeting Charles Bronson’s daughter, and Bronson has a snub-nosed revolver targeting the psycho-sexual slasher...

Take a Quick Behind-the-Scenes Look at Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare

A behind-the-scenes video for Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare haunted attraction, which runs October 10-November 2 (Thu-Sun only) in Pomona, CA, has arrived; and we have it for you right here! Hell yeah!

Dread Central Haunts Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare

When a haunt begins with you walking up to a giant pair of legs and squeezing your way into an oversized vagina, you know you’re in for some serious shit. That’s what Dread Central is greeted with when we step foot on the FEARplex to preview Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare!

B-Sides: The Hidden in Your Eyes

As I began to write this B-Sides, it suddenly hit me that if any sci-fi movie from the Eighties deserves a special edition Blu-ray, it’s The Hidden. Why is that Blu-ray being hidden from the waiting public? The theme song is pretty good, too.

B-Sides: Spies Like Paul McCartney, Dan Aykroyd, and Chevy Chase

With so much talk of leaked government secrets and spying, Spies Like Us seems overdue for the B-Sides treatment. With Paul McCartney singing the theme song to a Dan Aykroyd/Chevy Chase comedy, this is probably more of an A-Side than a B-Side.

B-Sides: You’re a Cool Dude, Berserker

This B-Sides bewilders me. If ever a song sounded like it was tailor-made for an early Eighties teen sex comedy, it’s “You’re a Cool Dude.” Instead it comes to us from a late Eighties slasher flick about teens in the Minnesota woods getting hacked up by a Viking Berserker.

B-Sides: Scanners Go Mind to Mind in The New Order

With Shout! Factory releasing Scanners II: The New Order and Scanners III: The Takeover in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack this week, I can think of no better time to bust out a real B-Sides gem that has toiled in obscurity for far too long: “Mind to Mind.”

Get Teased by Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare

A new teaser video for Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare haunted attraction, which runs October 10-November 2 (Thu-Sun only) in Pomona, CA, has arrived; and we have it for you right here! Hell yeah!

B-Sides: Snake Plissken Is The One

John Carpenter and Kurt Russell brought Snake Plissken back to the big screen 15 years after he escaped from New York. This time, earthquake-ravaged Los Angeles was the geographic prison he had to infiltrate and escape from. The results were a mixed bag at best, but the theme song by White Zombie was definitely “The One.”

B-Sides: Ultron Returns to the Age of Tuff Turf

The announcement that James Spader had been cast as the villainous Ultron in The Avengers: Age of Ultron spawned countless Less than Zero jokes on social media. Me? I see The Avengers sequel as a Tuff Turf reunion.

B-Sides: Thrashin’

One could probably describe Thrashin’ as The Karate Kid with a skateboard. One could also probably describe Meat Loaf’s title song as less of an actual song and more of a challenge to see how many times one can say “thrashin’” in three minutes.

B-Sides: Saturday Night at the Movies

“Saturday night at the movies; who cares what picture we see…” Coincidentally, the first time I ever saw Popcorn, I do believe it was a Saturday night at the movies. I did, however, care what picture I saw.
