‘Tales From the Crypt’ Volume 1 The early days of the horror icon crawl back from the grave

22 June 2015 7:10 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Few comics sit at the intersection of “fan beloved,” “industry defining,” and “absolutely impossible to acquire” the way the EC Comics library does. For a while they almost felt like Comics’ very own Holy Grail. On one hand, you’ve got the Tales From The Crypt brand itself, which has left an indelible mark on pop culture with films, cable TV series, Saturday morning cartoons, and a line of revival graphic novels from Papercutz — a proud legacy, to be sure. But on the other hand, you enter into the more nebulous region of pop cultural osmosis, and it’s there that the legend of Bill Gaines’ little comic line that could grows to gargantuan levels. The baby boomers that ate his ghoulish “mags” up in the early ‘50s eventually grew into the genre fiction movers and shakers of the ‘70s and ‘80s — from cult directors like George Romero and Joe Dante, »

Let's celebrate Father's Day with these 5 murderous movie dads

19 June 2015 5:16 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's Father's Day, meaning it's time to celebrate the man who gave you everything. Or maybe he didn't! Maybe he took off before you were even born. Maybe he was always away on business. Or maybe he just didn't love you enough. Hopefully none of those were true for you, but if they were: I am so sorry. Let's be real: Father's Day isn't fun and games for everybody. But even if your dad fell short, look at the bright side: at least he didn't try to kill you (I hope!). To afford some perspective, below I've listed five murderous movie dads who will make you immediately run out and buy a card saying "Thanks for always being there, Dad" or "You're the greatest, Dad" or "Thanks for not trying to cut me up into little pieces with an ax, Dad." That last one you're probably going to have to make yourself, »

Hollywood is refusing to make George Romero's Stephen King adaptations

1 June 2015 12:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Just now seeing this, but it seems a couple of interesting tidbits came out of George A. Romero's Wizard World St. Louis Q&A last week: 1. Nobody will make his Stephen King movie adaptations "...we haven't been able to sell 'The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon' to anybody. I have been working on that, and recently wrote another draft of that, but nobody wants to do that. We can't get anyone interested. That and 'Gerald's Game.' Those are the two I was interested in, but we can't get anyone." King and Romero famously collaborated on a number of films and TV shows back in the '80s and early '90s, including the 1983 anthology classic "Creepshow" and its 1987 sequel, the "Tales from the Darkside" TV series and film and the 1993 big-screen adaptation of King's "The Dark Half," which Romero wrote and directed. Romero adapted King's 1999 novel "The Girl »

Blu-ray Reviews: Empire Of The Ants, Jaws Of Satan, Food Of The Gods, Frogs

22 May 2015 10:23 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Animal horror was big in the 1970s, and it’s not just the fault of Jaws. Environmental concerns carrying over from the previous decade were seeping into the American consciousness and, by extension, the American genre film.

Pesticides, pollution and ever-increasing concerns about nuclear power funneled their way into a slew of eco-horror movies in which mankind’s incessant tampering with the environment led Mother Nature to retaliate in the form killer animals, insects and fish, often mutated to gigantic size and always ready to kill. Titles like Grizzly and Night of the Lepus and Kingdom of the Spiders and The Swarm were de rigueur for ‘70s horror, and while the genre has never really gone away — every year sees a few new killer animal films (and that’s not counting the SyFy Channel nonsense like Crocosaurus) — it reached its zenith during that decade. Now as part of their Summer of Fear, »

The Real Creepshow III: Tales From the Darkside: The Movie at 25

21 May 2015 1:12 PM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

George Romero’s Tales From the Darkside television series was born from an inability to follow up Creepshow II. Warner Bros. still owned certain rights to the franchise, and Romero (along with producing partner Richard P. Rubinstein) came up with a way to circumvent the studio’s grasp on their William Gaines-influenced classics. Utilizing Rubinstein’s Laurel Entertainment,…

Tales From The Darkside TV Series Reboot Not Moving Forward at The CW

7 May 2015 12:58 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The CW won't be returning to the place that's "not as brightly lit", as the network has apparently passed on the reboot of George A. Romero's 1980s anthology series, Tales From the Darkside.

According to CarterMatt.com, The CW will not be moving forward with their Tales From the Darkside reboot, with the show's anthology format and lack of a showrunner reportedly two of the reasons why the network passed on the series.

Joe Hill (Horns, NOS4A2, Locke & Key) wrote and executive produced the project and Kris Lemche (Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., Final Destination 3, Ginger Snaps, eXistenZ, Haven) was playing the lead role, a character named Newman who had knowledge of The Darkside and was going to appear in all (or most) episodes.

As fans will remember, the original Tales From the Darkside was a spinoff of Romero's Creepshow efforts. Like a 1980s cousin of The Twilight Zone, »

What was the best year in film history? HitFix readers continue the debate

1 May 2015 6:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

HitFix's recent spate of "Best Year in Film History" pieces inevitably spurred some furious debate among our readers, with some making compelling arguments for years not included in our pieces (2007 and 1968 were particularly popular choices) and others openly expressing their bewilderment at the inclusion of others (let's just say 2012 took a beating). In the interest of giving voice to your comments, below we've rounded up a few of the most thoughtful, passionate, surprising and occasionally incendiary responses to our pieces, including my own (I advocated for The Year of Our Lynch 2001, which is obviously the best). Here we go... Superstar commenter "A History of Matt," making an argument for 1968: The Graduate. Bullit. The Odd Couple. The Lion in Winter. Planet of the Apes. The Thomas Crown Affair. Funny Girl. Rosemary's Baby. And of course, 2001, A Space Odyssey. And that's only a taste of the greatness of that year. "Lothar the Flatulant, »
