Ginger-Stein: Rise of the Undead, the First Mini-Series in the Ginger-Stein Franchise, Begins October 11th

10 October 2011 11:15 AM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

It was a little over a year ago that we first heard about Dennis Willman's new comic series Ginger-Stein: Rise of the Undead, and now that the first issue is about to launch on Tuesday, October 11th, we have a lot more details and an image gallery to share.

From the Press Release:

On October 11th artistic mastermind Dennis Willman reveals his newest creation, Ginger-Stein, to the world. Ginger-Stein is the title of a multimedia horror/sci-fi project that is written, created, and illustrated by Willman and is unlike anything the horror audience has ever seen.

Ginger-Stein: Rise of the Undead is the first in a set of six comic book mini-series featuring horror’s hottest new heroine. The story and artwork are deeply rooted in 1980’s horror and sci-fi nostalgia. The violence is over-the-top, and like any good 80’s horror story, there’s sex, drugs, and a breaking of »

Clip joint: Giant people

28 September 2011 8:51 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Hollywood loves a big, scary beast, but what about super-sizing the humble human? Clip joint looks up magic mega-moments

Tinseltown has been convincingly developing the magnificence of the mighty in the animal kingdom for decades. A simple shift in perspective transformed King Kong (1933) from a large ape into a monster. Similarly the terror in Tremors (1990) lies not in the idea that we're being chased by sand worms, but that they're half-a-mile long.

Hollywood likes to super-size, to make things larger than life, but when it comes to clumsy old humanity it's much harder to make size scary. The Amazing Colossal Man (1957) looked corny, Allison Hayes's 50ft Woman looked bored, even on the attack. Jason and The Argonauts's (1963) bronze behemoth Talos had the stuff, but he was technically an automaton.

Human giants are smaller, sillier and far less malevolent. Their stomping ground is the cartoon or the gentle family comedy. »

TCM Airing Drive-In Monster Movie Marathons Every Thursday in June

1 June 2011 12:58 PM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

Assuming you have a humongous front door or outstanding insurance, Thursdays in June will be good night to pull your car into the living room, park it in front of your flatscreen, turn the channel to TCM, and try to relive the golden age of drive-in monster movies as TCM is loading its schedule this month with nothing but classic old school monster movies.

As if Turner Classic Movies wasn't already a fantastic channel as is (they're airing the 1977 Jaws with claws cult classic Grizzly this Friday at 2:00 Am Et), every Thursday in June they'll be running all-night Atomic Age monster movie marathons. From Godzilla to Harryhausen, from classics like The Thing from Another World to not-so-classics like Creature from the Haunted Sea to bad movie greatness like The Giant Claw... Here's TCM's own press release:

It came from the drive-in! The al fresco movie theater, a rage of the 1950s and '60s, »
