On this day in pop culture history: Both ‘Ghostbusters’ and ‘Gremlins’ premiered

8 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It was 32 years ago today that not one but two classic horror comedies opened in theaters. Yes, Ghostbusters was released on the same day as Gremlins. It’s hard to believe that these two movies opened against each other, but 1984 was a different time, when opening weekend numbers weren’t given the same weight as they are now and films stayed in theaters much longer. Ghostbusters that dominated the U.S. box office that opening weekend but not by much — it earned $13.6 million then, while Gremlins grossed $12.5 million. The Bill Murray movie became the clear winner of the box office over the summer, though, holding the No. 1 spot for seven consecutive weeks. Ghostbusters, of course, has a very buzzy and headline-grabbing (for better or worse or mass hysteria) follow-up film on the way this summer, a reboot of the original. There’s reportedly a new Gremlins on the way too: »

Drive-In Dust Offs: Waxwork (1988)

30 April 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The late ’80s provided a veritable potpourri for horror film fanatics. Slashers had petered out, and filmmakers were keen on exploring other avenues, everything from a parasitic drug slug (Brain Damage) to possession (The Unholy), and all points in-between. Of course, mileage may vary, and many have fallen through the cracks or are best forgotten. Possibly one of the oddest of the bunch is Anthony Hickox’s Waxwork (1988), a goofball mixture of Hammer and Amicus brought kicking and screaming into the modern era with a touch o’ teen comedy sensibility. And in horror, odd never hurts—and sometimes it even helps create an unassuming delight such as this.

Produced and distributed by Vestron Pictures, who scored big the previous year with the terrifying Dirty Dancing, Waxwork was given a limited release in June in the Us and the rest of the world the following year. Made for $1,500,000, it only returned $800,000 domestically. »

Leonel VHS Talks What Have You Done To Solange? With Camille Keaton

19 April 2016 2:13 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Every devoted horror fan at one time or another has sat down and taken the time to jot down his or her “bucket list” of people – actors, directors, etc. – who have all appeared in or helped helm horror films they love and have grown an attachment to. When I was a horror “newbie” back in the early-to-mid-80’s, there were films that shocked and terrified me and the more I watched them as years progressed, the more I became curious about the people who put these films together. I dreamed of getting to meet and hang out with those fabulous individuals that comprised their casts. The first one I ever put together was in the tenth grade sometime in 1990 while sitting in Physics class, staring at Mrs. Gooch and longing for the bell to ring to let us go. I had just started to educate myself on the popular (and at the same time, »
