Return of the Living Dead
Best Films to Play at Your Halloween Party When You Don't Necessarily Feel Like Playing Certain Halloween Sequels
On the 31st of October every year, my wife and I have a Halloween “party.” We never invite anybody, but like bats coming out to feed on bugs at dusk, a freakish horde of friends and friends of friends magically arrive around sundown. They block the streets with their filthy cars and come dancing through our front and back doors like they own the place.
After a very quiet post-Labor Day weekend for new movies, where Resident Evil: Afterlife (review) was the only major film released widely (and owned the box office), this week's new horror DVD titles aren't aplenty either.
Two mega-hit fan favorites are on their way to Blu-ray high definition this fall, and that means that it is now officially "paaarrrtttyyyy tiiiimmmmeeeee" in 1080p!
All you have to do is attend one convention to know how much horror fans love to wear t-shirts immortalizing their favorite characters. And now, thanks to Fright-Rags, one of the most beloved zombies out there, Return of the Living Dead's Tarman, has a new shirt and poster for his followers to enjoy.
2009 has been mired in death. We lost a lot of icons over the past few months, and it's with a heavy heart that we report we've just lost another one. Dan O'Bannon, age 63, is no longer with us.
What are you doing tonight? I'm recording a new Dinner for Fiends, but the rest of you in the L.A. area should be heading out to see the Clu Gulager Film Festival, which kicks off tonight at 7:30 PM with a screening of Dan O'Bannon's punktastic Return of the Living Dead.
Our man Andrew Kasch reported in this past weekend with news that the one and only Clu Gulager, father of John and actor in more roles than I care to count, is starting up his very own film festival in Los Angeles. Running August 27th-30th, the craftily titled Clu Gulager Film Festival will feature some great movies and even better guests.
