Artist Bernie Wrightson Has Passed Away

19 March 2017 2:43 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

His illustrations may have caused you to dread the next full moon, avoid the swamp on your shortcut home, or ignite your imagination with a peek into the post-apocalypse. Through his artwork, Bernie Wrightson has influenced and inspired generations of horror fans, so it is with great sadness that we inform readers that the prolific artist has passed away at the age of 68 after a long battle with brain cancer.

Wrightson's wife, Liz, shared the somber news of her husband's passing earlier today on the artist's official website and Facebook page.

A fan of EC Comics growing up, Bernie Wrightson, aka "Berni," began working on projects for both DC and Marvel early in his career, co-creating the complex character Swamp Thing with writer Len Wein in the early ’70s. Bernie later worked for Warren Publishing, where he helped bring H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe stories to life on the paneled page. »

Robot Wars series 9 episode 3 review

There was more carnage, venting CO2 and frustration in the latest great episode of Robot Wars...

This review contains spoilers.

Tell me where else on television you’re going to hear somebody say, “I’ve certainly got a lot of experience controlling sticks with my thumbs”? That’s why you have to love Robot Wars; there’s nothing else quite like it (unless you count BattleBots, which is quite like it but is also American and therefore twice as noisy with half the charm).

Congratulations this week go to winners Concussion, who did Dorset proud by taking their battle-untested bot all the way to victory in the final. They saw off veteran competitor Thor through a fog of vented CO2 and hasty repairs, »

Movie Review: The Devil’s Candy plays its heavy-metal horror riff fast and loud

16 March 2017 8:35 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Heavy metal and horror movies go together like chocolate and peanut butter, not least because of their shared fascination with Satan. The relationship between the trio goes back to the days when Ozzy Osbourne and his bandmates decided to name Black Sabbath after the Mario Bava movie playing across the street from their rehearsal space, and Australian filmmaker Sean Byrne (The Loved Ones) revisits it once more for his sophomore horror feature, The Devil’s Candy. This time around, though, Byrne adds a twist by appealing to a growing and under-represented segment of the extreme art forms’ shared fan base: parents.

A long-haired, tattooed Ethan Embry stars as Jesse Hellman, a struggling painter who has passed on his love of all things metal to his preteen daughter, Zooey (Kiara Glasco). Along with his wife, loving and tolerant hair stylist Astrid (Shiri Appleby), Jesse just bought a house in the countryside »

This Oscar-Winning 1952 Stop-Motion Short Is Looking Awfully Relevant Right Now

19 February 2017 12:50 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Like a lot of politically charged films, Norman McLaren’s “Neighbours” was controversial upon release and his since come to be regarded as an important classic. Produced by the National Film Board of Canada and the winner of an Academy Award in 1953, McLaren’s eight-minute short can be viewed in its entirety on YouTube. Watch below.

The stop-motion short finds two men reading newspapers with opposing headlines in front of their cardboard houses when a flower sprouts at the halfway point between their respective homes. Both are drawn to it, eventually leading to a conflict: They put up a fence and use parts of it as swords, devolving more and more into barbarism as their feud escalates.

Lady Gaga and Metallica Soldier on After Mic Malfunction During Grammys Performance

12 February 2017 7:10 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Joanne might’ve surprised fans by stripping away its maker’s signature brand of electropop in favor of a fresh, rock-inspired sound, but Lady Gaga’s duet with Metallica at Sunday’s Grammys reaffirmed the “John Wayne” singer can hold her own against the genre’s heaviest hitters.

One week after taking the biggest stage on television as the Super Bowl Li halftime show headliner and announcing a worldwide tour, Gaga joined the iconic metal band to perform at Los Angeles’ Staples Center for a set that was riddled with microphone malfunctions for the Metallica lead singer.

Ten Best: Music Documentaries

2 February 2017 4:28 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Music documentaries are a genre unto their own – sometimes they give you a glimpse behind the scenes of your favourite band, and sometimes they’re about someone you’ve never heard about who become your favourite band. With that in mind, here’s a rundown of the Top 10 Best Music Documentaries of all time:

Anvil! The Story Of Anvil

An opening of Heavy Metal icons such Slash, Lemmy and Lars Ulrich singing the praises of a band you’ve never heard of makes you think it’s all just a Spinal Tap style spoof. But no, after never quite hitting the big time in the early 80s, Canadian Metal band Anvil have still been plugging away despite the lack of success – at the beginning of the film frontman Steve “Lips” Kudlow is having to make a living delivering school dinners in Toronto! It’s a heart-warming underdog tale of never giving up your dream. »

Second Opinion – Sing (2016)

25 January 2017 8:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sing, 2016.

Directed by Garth Jennings.

Featuring the voice talents of Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Seth MacFarlane, Taron Egerton, Peter Serafinowicz, Tori Kelly, Garth Jennings, Rhea Perlman, Nick Kroll, John C. Reilly, Jennifer Saunders, Nick Offerman, Leslie Jones, and Adam Buxton.


Koala bear Buster Moon (the voice of Matthew McConaughey) is easily the least successful impresario in the theatre world.  All his shows flop and, staring bankruptcy in the face, he decides to launch a singing contest.  One that attracts a long queue of hopefuls, including a crooning mouse, a heavy metal skunk, a shy singing elephant and a narcissistic pig.  But who will win the $100,000 prize?

With Gru and his Minions due to return this summer in Despicable Me 3, Illumination is plugging the gap with new animation, Sing, which borrows heavily from the unlikely combination of Disney and X-Factor.
