90′S Horror Kid TV Spotlight: Gravedale High

21 April 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

(Author’s Note: This is part of an ongoing series where Bj Colangelo takes a trip down memory lane and talks about the kid friendly horror TV shows from the 1990s/early 2000s that helped shape her into the horror loving fangirl she is today.)

Before Monster High dolls dominated the world of girl’s toys, there were a slew of high school horror themed cartoons in the late 1980s and early 1990s, but none were as awesome as Rick Moranis In Gravedale High. Anytime a television show attempts to gain momentum by name dropping Rick Moranis, it can be safely assumed I’m already going to be addicted.  Although the show only ran for one season, the Universal Monster inspired cartoon high school became a quick favorite for 90′s kids and is still a popular source for fan-fiction and roleplaying communities today.

Gravedale High revolved around the misadventures of »

18 April 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Today sees the release of Poseidon Rex on iTunes and select theaters, and we caught up with director Mark L. Lester for our latest Q&A feature. Best known for directing Commando and Firestarter, Mark tells us about his fascination with creature features, developing Poseidon Rex, and what he’s working on next:

Having been involved in creature features previously, what made you want to take on Poseidon Rex as your next film?

Mark L. Lester: I loved the idea of doing a sea creature movie and always wanted to make one, since I saw Beast of 20,000 Fathoms, as a little kid. That picture really haunted me.

Did you have any input in the story or was the script put together before you came on board?

Mark L. Lester: I developed the entire story from the beginning and had the script written by Rafael Jordan. I wanted to »

10 Board Games Based on Horror Movies

10 April 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Last week we showed you an absolutely awesome fan-made Hellraiser board game, which you guys seemed to love as much as we did. Unfortunately, it's not the kind of game that's readily available for purchasing, but it got us thinking about officially licensed board games from the past, based on other fan-favorite horror flicks.

So as a follow-up to that post, here are 10 horror movie-inspired board games that you actually can purchase and play!

Dawn Of The Dead

Right around the time Dawn of the Dead shambled its way into theaters, a company called Simulations Publications, Inc. put out a board game based on the film, which allowed players to either become the zombies or the surviving humans. The game board was based on the shopping mall that the majority of Romero's second 'Dead' outing took place in, and the object of the game was to either kill the humans »

Deal! Universal Classic Monsters Blu-ray Collection On Sale

8 April 2014 8:07 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This week, Amazon is offering Universal's Classic Monsters: The Essential Blu-ray Collection for only $54.49 and if you've been reading this site for over a year-and-a-half you'll know what a fan of this collection I am. Back in October 2012 I received a review copy of the set, which includes Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy, The Invisible Man, The Bride of Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, Phantom of the Opera and Creature From the Black Lagoon and sought to review the three films I hadn't seen of the bunch. Those reviews can be found at the following links: The Invisible Man (read here) The Phantom of the Opera (read here) The Creature from the Black Lagoon (read here) Of those I didn't explicitly review for this set, I actually love them all. The original Wolf Man is great and Dracula is particularly creepy, but you really can't go wrong with any of them. The »

Our 10 Favorite Heroic Modernized Monsters

24 January 2014 11:42 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Film and television have held a fascination with horror nearly as long as they have existed, stretching back to Edison Studios’ short adaptation of Frankenstein. From Nosferatu through Dracula and Creature from the Black Lagoon, the silver screen quickly set about reminding audiences to fear the ugly, the grotesque, and the monstrous.

A certain sub-genre of movies and TV – increasingly prevalent – has sought to turn these horror icons into heroes. The new action-horror flick I, Frankenstein is a particularly over-the-top example of this trope in action.

The film’s release has gotten us thinking about other archetypal monsters recast as triumphant heroes. Join Screen Rant as we consider our favorite heroic modernized monsters.

TV Recap: 'Face Off' Episode 601 - 'Sexy Beasts'

15 January 2014 2:00 PM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Face Off Episode 601

“Sexy Beasts”

Original Airdate: 14 January 2014

In This Episode…

The sixth season opens with McKenzie Westmore announcing that this will be a season of extremes, and they are looking for bigger and more extreme makeups. She also reveals that, new this year, the judges will have the opportunity to offer a one-time immunity to anyone they think deserves a second chance. I assume that this is one immunity per judge.

The episode starts with a foundation challenge, to do a makeup that represents themselves as artists, and inspired by a huge, crazy wig worn by a model. George wins and gains immunity for the week.

The spotlight challenge takes the contestants to a castle, where they are greeted by six princesses in lush gowns, holding a picture of a castle. Working in teams of two, each team must create a Beast to go with his castle and his Belle. »
