Best of 2013: Top Five Comic Book Series

23 December 2013 9:00 AM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

The best comics develop and grow as the story progresses. This year was flush with fun, exciting new horror comics. And while many series came and went, a few choice "comic runs" went above and beyond this year. Whether it's thrilling plot lines, in depth character develop, or just bad-ass monsters and action… these are our favorites of the year.

Everything 'Judge Dredd'

This has been a great year for 'Judge Dredd' comics. We've seen him fighting off aliens in 'Mars Attacks Judge Dredd,' learning the ropes in 'Judge Dredd Year One,' and he even gave us flashbacks in 'Judge Dredd Classics!' There's no denying it: the man with big helmet is back! Publisher Idw has really wrangled some mileage out of the licensing rights to Judge Dredd, and we're all the better for it. All the stories revolve around the »

Roger Corman Classics Restored from 35mm Film Elements Release Review

8 November 2013 9:22 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Most horror freaks are very familiar with Roger Corman often because of the goofy horror movies from the family video stores in the olden days of Bmovies. Younger fans might know Coreman as the producer of the original Piranha that later became a couple of successful remakes or perhaps from his successful cult films The Little Shop of Horrors (1960) Swamp Women (1965) or his many Edgar Allan Poe adaptations including The Pit and the Pendulum (1961) The Raven (1963) The Haunted Palace (1963)and a host of others most of which starred the iconic horror figure Vincent Price. »

Bagged and Boarded Comic Reviews: New Sandman, Poe Stories, and more

1 November 2013 4:00 PM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

New comic book Wednesday has come and gone. The dust at your local comic shop has settled. An eerie silence descends as you finish reading your last superhero book of the week. Now it's time for something a little more sinister. Welcome to Bagged and Boarded: comic reviews of the sick, spooky, twisted and terrifying!

The Raven and the Red Death

The last time I reviewed a Richard Corben adaptation of Edgar Allen Poe it was the two-part Fall of the House of Usher. This time the comic luminary tackles "The Raven" and "The Masque of the Red Death." The two tales, told in lush detail, play out to their frightful conclusions in this wonderful one-shot.

Bag it or board it up? Corben draws people like a madman dreaming. Everyone is gnawing, gnashing, struggling and straining. It's wonderful, full-bodied, contorted, and perfectly suits stories from the master of the macabre, »

The Simpsons' 13 greatest 'Treehouse of Horror' segments

31 October 2013 2:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The Simpsons may have lost some of its edge after nearly 25 years on the air, but in its heyday during the '90s, it's tricky to find any other sitcom to match it in terms of wit and cutting satire. Halloween always brought out the best in the show's writers, with the special 'Treehouse of Horror' episodes taking on an anthology format to tell three spooky stories in The Simpsons' own unique style.

Popular films and TV shows often get affectionately spoofed, while for many The Simpsons will have been an introduction to Edgar Allan Poe's poem 'The Raven'. With Halloween upon us, Digital Spy takes a look back at 13 classic 'Treehouse of Horror' segments below...

'The Shinning' - Treehouse of Horror V (1994)

DVD Review - Twixt (2011)

28 October 2013 1:17 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Twixt, 2011.

Written and Directed by Francis Ford Coppola.

Starring Val Kilmer, Bruce Dern, Elle Fanning, Ben Chaplin, Joanne Whalley, David Paymer, Anthony Fusco and Alden Ehrenreich.


Hall Baltimore (Kilmer), a mystery writer whose career has gone downhill, goes on a book signing tour and arrives in a supposedly haunted town where he becomes involved in a murder case on which he is asked to base his next story. As he gradually uncovers the truth behind the case Hall realises his own life may be connected to the murder... 

I feel like every great director has a peak. Francis Ford Coppola reached his peak a long time ago. The only way I can suitable describe Twixt is as a pile of wank.

The film looked fairly promising in its publicity: a film that is more weird and disconcerting than it is scary, with a cast of up-and-comers teamed with established actors. »

Richard Corben and the Two Tales of The Raven

27 October 2013 4:32 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The new Richard Corben comic from Dark Horse, The Raven and the Red Death, contains two brand new adaptations of Edgar Allan Poe poetry. With “The Raven,” Corben gets to revisit the Poe classic. Back in December 1974, Corben (along with writer Rich Margopoulos) originally adapted The Raven in a faithful, if reworked here to make it an eight page comic, story. Appearing in Creepy #67 (and reprinted in 2012′s Creepy Presents Richard Corben,) Corben gets to illustrate a man opening his door, hoping to find his love Lenore only to have his home invaded by a pesky raven, who thwarts his every desire with the repeated word, “nevermore.” Corben’s painted work is dark, moody and has colors that pierce you down to your soul. He’s constantly bouncing back and forth between forcing you to encounter the chill of the raven’s night and the heat of the narrator’s desire. »

Lou Reed 1942-2013

27 October 2013 12:54 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

Singer/songwriter Lou Reed.

I interviewed Lou Reed in spring of 2003 in conjunction with the release of his latest album, The Raven. A hero of mine since childhood, our chat did not start out well. As I entered his office in Soho, he greeted me with a look combining contempt and outright revulsion: "Oh you little yuppie punk, please say something stupid so I can throw your ass outta my office," it seemed to say. Happily, Reed warmed up over the next two hours and we had a terrific chat about many things, recorded below.

Several months later, I attended his sold-out concert at the Wiltern in L.A. Backstage, I shook his hand and told him how much I enjoyed the show.. He managed a smile, patted my shoulder, and said "Nice work."

Rip Lou, and thanks for it all.

Exclusive: Director Stuart Gordon Talks About Adapting 'Nevermore'

24 October 2013 4:00 PM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »


Director Stuart Gordon has worked with actor Jeffrey Combs since his first feature film, Re-Animator, in 1985. Since then, they have worked on nearly a dozen projects, many of them adaptations of H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe stories. Their newest collaboration isn’t all that new: Nevermore. Based on the personal letters and journals of Poe, “Nevermore” started as a one-man stage play, directed by Gordon and starring Combs as Poe. Three years later, the pair want to turn the play into a film. We spoke with Stuart Gordon about his plans for the film adaptation.

First tell us a little bit about “Nevermore” and how you started with the play?

In 2007 Jeffrey Combs played Poe for the first time in “The Black Cat,” an episode of the Masters of Horror series on Showtime.  He was so amazing that we decided to create “Nevermore,” a one-man stage show for the bicentennial of Poe’s birth. »

The Very Best Films of Vincent Price

24 October 2013 8:45 AM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

Far too often we throw around the phrase "horror icon" or "horror legend"; however, there is no disputing the fact that Vincent Price absolutely deserves to be described with both of those handles. And today, to celebrate Scream Factory's launch of The Vincent Price Collection (review), we count down our Top 10 Vincent Price Films.

Well known to mainstream, non-horror fans as the voice in the legendary Michael Jackson song "Thriller," Vincent Price was indeed the face of horror for quite some time. He was incredibly chilling with a voice that simply oozed horror. And it's for those enviable traits, and the fact that he spent so much of his life dedicated to the horror genre, that we honor Vincent Price with his own personal Top 10 list!

He has just under 200 acting credits to his name, then over 175 more instances where he appeared as himself. Price's credits read like a »

Crowdfunding Friday: dreams, games and illustrated Poe

24 October 2013 4:32 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Ryan Lambie 25 Oct 2013 - 07:12

This week's Crowdfunding Friday has a dream theme, as we bring you a selection of film and gaming projects with a surreal edge...

The sheer volume of crowdfunding projects appearing online every week presents a bit of a problem. How do you choose just three or four to highlight in a brief post like this? Well, this time, we've come up with a cunning plan - we've chosen some crowdfunding offerings that all based around the theme of dreams. Or at least feel like they have something to do with dreams. Yes, it's a bit of a tenuous link, but it's better than nothing.

This week's selection includes two very different but extremely worthy videogames, a science fiction film that looks like an arthouse Inception, and a book that collects together Poe illustrations by an under-appreciated Victorian artist.

There's certainly  a surreal, »

Help Bring Stuart Gordon's Incredible Nevermore to the Big Screen

23 October 2013 10:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

We first told you about Stuart Gordon and Jeffrey Combs' plans to bring their phenomenal Edgar Allan Poe stage play Nevermore to the big screen a while back, but now the two titans are hoping to see their project become a reality through a Kickstarter campaign.

According to the campaign page: Nevermore is set in 1848, a year after the death of Poe's beloved wife, Virginia (and a year before his own). He had become internationally famous as the author of The Raven and his Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque. But his fame did not provide fortune, and so he was constantly seeking financial security and respect from the literary establishment.

This is Poe in his own words. Our text is taken from his letters and essays, and we have based our evening on reviews and reports of his actual appearances. Our goal is to present a sense »

Countdown to Halloween - Dracula (1931)

8 October 2013 11:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To countdown to this year's Halloween, Luke Owen reviews a different horror film every day of October. Next up is 1931's Dracula...

Released in 1931 to critical and public praise, Dracula is not only one of Universal's most iconic movies, but is a film that would kickstart their Monster Movie line that would dominate the 30s and 40s. It was also the film that would give us the defining Dracula performance from Hungarian actor Bela Lugosi - a performance that has been rivalled and challenged, but never beaten. Nearly 80 years later, people are still imitating this legendary performance.

However, Lugosi's genius is not the sole reason why Dracula was a success. Director Tod Browning creates an incredible and chilling atmosphere with gorgeous cinematography, brilliant lighting choices, incredible sets and a haunting score that utilities Act II from Swan Lake. The script is also very strong with some wonderful lines of dialogue »

On This Day in Horror Movie History October 7th

7 October 2013 8:56 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Edgar Allan Poe aside from being highly influential on the shape and direction of the genre wrote several short stories and poems that are counted as favorites amongst fans everywhere. Many such as The Fall of the House of Usher The Pit and the Pendulum and The Raven have been made into horror movies but more than his direct influence Poes ghastly portraits of death and our mortal mingling with the immortal world perverted that which was sacred and turned it into the realm of fear. »

New Nymphomaniac Teaser Online

30 September 2013 7:28 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Raccoon-loving literary titan Edgar Allan Poe is having a bit of a moment on big and small screens. He's been the star of his own thriller, The Raven, alongside that raccoon, and he's the inspiration for James Purefoy's serial killer in Fox TV show The Following. Here he is again, lending his gloriously macabre prose to Lars von Trier's new Nymphomaniac teaser / clip / appetiser / whatnot. This is the fourth chapter in a wildly cryptic and increasingly teassing campaign, although if you haven't seen chapters one through three, don't panic! They don't help. Neither, we guess, will the film's new website,, when it launches in earnest, although it may have more doodles of people's sexy bits for those who are interested. And, yes, that's you. Don't deny it.So what can be divined from von Trier's use of The Fall Of The House Of Usher's famous opening in the voiceover? »

What!? Quentin Tarantino is B-Movie Producer Roger Corman in Biopic

20 September 2013 9:08 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

In case you didn't know, Gremlins director Joe Dante is working on a biopic about legendary B-movie producer Roger Corman, the man responsible for films like Wasp Woman, The Raven, Pit and the Pendulum, Piranha, Rock 'N' Roll High School and Death Race 2000. At one time, Colin Firth was going to play the producer in the film called The Man with the Kaleidoscope Eyes, but now a really surprising casting change has taken place. The Telegraph (Bleeding Cool) recently spoke with Corman, who revealed that director and occasional actor Quentin Tarantino will be playing Corman in the developing biopic. Though there's not an exact quote from Corman explaining the casting, he does divulge some story details: "It’s the story of how I made The Trip in the 1960s about LSD. It starred Jack Nicholson in one of his first roles and I took LSD so I knew what it was all about. »
