Everyone always gets excited when a big movie license is secured by someone who makes cool stuff... but usually when a cult classic like Attack of the Killer Tomatoes comes up, they couldn't care less. Well, we care, damn it!
From the Press Release
Act III Licensing and Killer Tomato Entertainment, Inc. (Kte, Inc.), have inked a multi-year licensing agreement signaling a brand re-launch for one of the industry’s most enduring titles.
“Killer Tomatoes®” made its mark by capitalizing on a title that Art Week called “one of the ten best of all time.” The micro-budgeted 1978 original was a midnight show mainstay and a pioneer in the eclectic “World’s Worst Films” market.
The comedy-horror spectacle spawned three sequels, Return of the Killer Tomatoes! (George Clooney), Killer Tomatoes Strike Back! and Killer Tomatoes Eat France! (John Astin), as well as the Fox Children’s Network" Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" Saturday morning animated series. »

Ah, Valentine’s Day- that special time of year when, if you’re in a relationship, everything seems just wonderful. If you’re not, you pretty much wish everyone around you would stop being so damn lovey-dovey and just grow up already.
The horror genre has seen its share of passionate lovers and soul mates over the years willing to fight it out to the end, whether they’re being chased by creatures, psychotic serial killers, Mother Nature or even as they struggling against internal forces that threaten those they love most in the world.
To celebrate Valentine’s Day this Friday, I decided to pay homage to some of my very favorite couples in the horror that demonstrate to the very fullest the idea, “til death do us part.” Check out the first part of my 14 Favorite Horror Couples countdown below and look for part two later this week right here on Daily Dead! »

It was never even released to VHS, let alone as any sort of shiny disc, but the wait is now finally over. The 1960s Batman TV series starring Adam West and Burt Ward will be released as a box set by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment sometime during 2014. Kapow! Boff! Zwap!Conan O'Brien broke the news via Twitter which was later confirmed by the studio. "Very excited," quoth batfan O'Brien. He posted a picture of himself with the iconic '60s Batmobile, observing that "the seat smells like Adam West".
