DC Gets Into the Halloween Spirit with American Vampire, Arkham Manor, Death of the Family

7 hours ago

When you think of spooky places this time of year, perhaps images of Haddonfield, Camp Crystal Lake, and The Further dance in your head. But this Halloween, DC is taking readers on a new tour of terror with a batch of horror-themed comics. Tiptoe through a creepy campus, lose your mind in the insane asylum, grab a seat at the Joker’s dinner table, and crawl through haunted mines where bats hungrily eye your neck. 

Explore the creepy campus…

Gotham Academy #1:

“Welcome To Gotham Academy! Gotham City’s most prestigious prep school is a very weird place. It’s got a spooky campus, oddball teachers, and rich benefactors always dropping by…like that weirdo Bruce Wayne. But nothing is as strange is the students!

Like, what’s up with Olive Silverlock? Is she crazy or what? Where did she go last summer? And what’s the deal with her creepy mom? »

L.M. Kit Carson Has Passed Away

29 October 2014 1:16 PM, PDT

We’re sad to report that L.M. Kit Carson has passed away at the age of 73.

Deadline reports that renowned screenwriter and actor L.M. Kit Carson passed away on October 20th in Dallas, TX. He had been fighting osteoporosis and other illnesses at the time of his death.

Admired for his exemplary work in both the journalism and independent film fields, Carson is perhaps most widely remembered for co-writing the screenplay for 1984’s Paris, Texas.

Horror film fans know Carson for co-writing the script of the intriguing, dark comedy sequel, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986). Carson also wrote the teleplays for two episodes of the 1980’s TV series, Deadly Nightmares. Our thoughts go out to Carson’s family and friends.

10 Years of Saw: Heather’s Favorite Traps

28 October 2014 4:24 PM, PDT

This Halloween, Lionsgate is bringing Jigsaw and all his deadly contraptions back to the big screen for a one-week limited re-release of James Wan’s indie horror triumph, Saw. To honor the occasion, I thought it would be fun to take a look back and celebrate some of my favorite traps and set-ups featured throughout the series.

Saw: The Reverse Bear Trap

We’ll just go ahead and start with the most iconic trap of the entire Saw franchise- the reverse bear trap that Shawnee Smith found herself locked inside of during Wan’s original film. Visually, the contraption is a horrific marvel of complicated steel and death, demonstrating just how visceral Jigsaw’s object lessons could be. And when you couple that with image of Smith waking up inside the reverse bear trap- and how she masterfully sells that moment with just the use of her eyes- it »
