Join Stan on Dec. 2nd (click to see it bigger!)Yes, December seems like a long ways away, but if you’re anything like me, once fall arrives, it isn’t long before your holiday schedule starts filling up. So, in the spirit of assisting our readers with their social calendars, I thought I’d give you some early warning about Monsters in Motion’s upcoming in-store appearance and book signing with the one and only Stan Winston. Stan will be signing autographs and talking about his new book, The Winston Effect: The Art and History of Stan Winston Studios.

The book, which includes a foreword by legendary director James Cameron, promises to “reveal all the behind-the-scenes secrets of Winston’s groundbreaking and hugely influential artistry and effects work. Featuring an extensive array of sketches, production art, and exclusive photographs straight from the studio archives, this is a landmark book in cinema history! If you can’t make it to the show but still want to support Stan, you can pre-order The Winston Effect from Evilshop by clicking here!

The event will be held on Saturday, December 2nd, from 12:00 noon-2:00 pm PST. Monsters in Motion is located at 181 W. Orangethorpe Avenue, Unit E, Placentia, California 92870, and their phone number is (714) 577-8863.

AHS 8 Will Be More Like ASYLUM and COVEN

Published

on

News has been steadily coming in regarding the upcoming 8th season of Ryan Murphy’s horror anthology series American Horror Story. It was just the other day that we let you guys know that Billie Lourd will be back for the new season, which begins shooting this June.

And today we have word via Deadline regarding just what the tone will be for this new season, rumored to be titled AHS: Radioactive.

It’s not necessarily as real and grounded as the past season,” Murphy said. “We’re sort of getting back to Asylum and Coven. That’s the tone of it.”

Personally, I really enjoyed the grounded tone of AHS: Cult and I think it helped rejuvenate the series. But then again, a return to the tone of perhaps the show’s most beloved season (AHS: Asylum) is just what the series needs in the long run.

Are you excited to hear AHS 8 will be going back to the tone of Asylum and Coven? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

AHS Season 8 stars Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Billie Lourd, Kathy Bates, and new cast member Joan Collins, who will play Peters’ grandmother. Murphy has revealed he’s interested in casting Anjelica Huston (The Addams Family) as well.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Coming To Nintendo Switch In Japan This Week

Published

on

Although it’s already been home to a vast number of horror titles, the Nintendo Switch will finally come into the possession of the crown jewel of horror video games, as Capcom have confirmed that Resident Evil 7: Biohazard will be heading to the system on May 24. In Japan, at least.

Because of the limitations of the Switch hardware compared to both the PS4 and the Xbox One, the Switch version of Resident Evil 7 will only be playable by being streamed directly from Capcom’s online servers onto the physical console. Meaning that after the initial 45MB download, you’ll need to have an internet connection and be permanently online in order for it to work, so even though the Switch is a portable console hybrid, you unfortunately won’t be able to play Resident Evil 7 on the move.

In Japan, the Switch version of Resident Evil 7 will be known as Biohazard 7 Resident Evil Cloud Version, and will be priced at 2,000 yen (around $18). Once purchased, you’ll have access to the game for 180 days. There’s currently no word if you’ll be able to pay for a renewal once that time is up, or even if the Switch version will be released outside Japan, but Capcom have clearly come up with an ingenious solution to releasing more powerful games on less powerful systems, so we’re curious to see if their strategy of streaming games onto consoles catches on.
