He’s won the Hugo Award for Best Professional Artist a whopping eight times, along with snagging the Chesley Award for Artistic Achievement. He’s even got an asteroid named after him!

Critters: Special Edition?

Back when the special editions of the original Star Wars trilogy came out, I saw a pay-per-view listing for Critters: Special Edition. Despite all my searching, I can’t find any information about the supposed special edition online. My best guess is that it was it was a widescreen version of the film using the alternate …

Relics and Reptiles

I was surprised to discover that not only was the movie The Relic based on a novel, but that said novel also had a sequel! In fact, you can read a sample chapter from said sequel, Reliquary, here. Speaking of samples, you can also read samples from The Relic, an early draft of The Relic, …

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Remember that “Leprechaun in Mobile, Alabama” thing from a few years back? The one with that inspired a hilarious rap remix? Well, someone combined it with the trailer from the movie Leprechaun and the world is better for it: Speaking of the Leprechaun franchise, does anyone else out there remember a segment from Entertainment Tonight …

TGIF13 II: WOOF WOOF WOOF!

Jason Voorhees (presumably Kane Hodder) appears on The Arsenio Hall Show to promote Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan. This ranks right up there with Pinhead’s appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Duane L. Jones (1936-1988)

Although his name might not be as recognizable as Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, or Robert Englund, Duane Jones is one of the most important people in American horror cinema. Jones is best known for his role as “Ben,” a man who faces many difficulties while trying to lead (and save) a group of people trapped …

Linger Longer

Some poor schmuck went on “The Opie & Anthony Show” in order to promote his low budget horror movie, Gap. Although the hosts got some licks in, comedian Louis CK took it upon himself to brutally rip apart all aspects of the film as its pretentious creator tries (and fails) to defend himself. Here’s part …

Pieces

Get this: the movie I reviewed immediately after Winterbeast also has a connection to Massachusetts! This time, it’s a gory horror flick set in Boston called Pieces. The movie opens in 1942, with a mother catching her son diligently working on a puzzle depicting a naked woman. Furious with her son taking after her lecherous …

Winterbeast

As a fan of hilariously bad horror movies, I have a special fondness for “regional” horror films. Regional films are independent movies made in small cities and towns, often incorporating touches of “local color.” So when I found out that portions of such a movie were filmed in my old stomping grounds (Waltham, Massachusetts), I …

Happy Horrordays!

I’m sorry for the lack of updates in November and December. The reason for this is because my computer got infected with a nasty type of malware known as a “krueger.” Yes, as in “Freddy Krueger.” Due to its ability to replicate itself no matter how many times I tried to remove it, I was …

Political Zombies

What better way to celebrate today’s election than zombified masks of the candidates? So whether you’re supporting Zombama, McBrain, or planning a write-in for Hellary, be sure to actually go out and vote before the polls close.

Halloween Hobnobbin’

I’ve got to make this quick since I have some last-minute Halloween preparations to make. Some of you might be a little baffled as to why I chose to post a video of someone in a silly costume singing a cover of a Frank Zappa song, but I hope that the message at the end …

Terror T.R.A.X.

Back in the early 90’s, the company behind “Dungeons & Dragons” created a line of “Choose Your Own Adventure”-type audio CDs called Terror T.R.A.X. The idea behind them was that you were an operative for a secret organization (Trace, Research, Analyze and eXterminate) that investigates 911 calls involving the paranormal and that you’d switch audio …

This is sexy?

Mondo Schlocko has a great, two–part look at some supposedly “sexy” Halloween costumes for women. There’s actually an even goofier “Sexy Freddy Krueger” costume out there, but I don’t know if it’s available to the general public.
