Details on Trapped in a Room with a Zombie

13 hours ago

Ever run around your house in a frenzy looking for misplaced car keys? It can be quite a frustration-fueled adrenaline rush. Now imagine looking for a key and being confined to one room with eleven other people… and one zombie chained to the wall. Room Escape Adventures, an interactive theater production company, traps twelve people in a room with a chained zombie and gives them one hour to find the hidden key to unlock their freedom. It’s team building with a twist.

Open Wednesday – Sunday in eleven cities for $28 a ticket, Room Escape Adventures offers a unique date night or outing with friends. Once you and your friends and perhaps some strangers (depending on how many people are around to fill the 12-person room limit) are locked in the room, a one-hour countdown begins. Clues can be found hidden in the room, and puzzles and riddles must be solved »

George Miller Talks Mad Max: Fury Road At Comic-Con 2014

28 July 2014 1:40 PM, PDT

It was a big year for Mad Max at Comic-Con. Gracing the cover of the Entertainment Weekly exclusive to the con, a Hall-h panel, and the release of the trailer all brought a noticeable buzz to patrons old enough to remember the originals and those seeing the character for the first time. With great pleasure, we attended an intimate press conference with Director/Writer George Miller and Producer Doug Mitchell, who discussed the challenges of bringing this movie to the big screen and teased additional adventures planned for Max beyond Fury Road.

It comes as no surprise, especially after the release of the trailer, that we are seeing a much younger Max in this film. We’ll be seeing a man closer to the recent wounds of losing his family, and that will be mirrored by the desert environments and the people that inhabit it.

[Comic-Con 2014] Watch the Michael Myers Slide Video

28 July 2014 12:37 PM, PDT

Michael is coming home… and he’s going to bust some dance moves on the way there. At Comic-Con this past weekend, ten Michael Myers and one witch (in a tribute to Halloween III) gathered outside the convention center. They walked slowly and tilted their heads to John Carpenter’s eerie Halloween score until Eminem and Rihanna’s “The Monster” kicked in, resulting in a choreographed boogeyman boogie that would even astonish Dr. Loomis.

Dubbed “The Michael Myers Slide”, the dance was captured on video and was put together in celebration of the upcoming September 23rd release of Halloween The Complete Collection Blu-ray box set from Scream Factory and Anchor Bay. For more details on the 15-disc collection, visit:

After writing and directing two films featuring the haunt of Haddonfield, Michael Myers, Rob Zombie is returning to October 31st with an original film titled 31. After the first one was revealed about two weeks ago, another piece of concept art for 31 has been unveiled by Zombie that gives more insight into the mysterious movie, with the filmmaker promising big updates later this week.
