The Deadly Spawn (1983)
Metamorphosis: The Alien Factor (1990)
Before I begin I want to preface this article by saying when I get the opportunity to talk about a specific “memory movie” from either my childhood, teens or early 20s I like to try and seek out participation from someone who was involved in

First up, the Gremlins and The Deadly Spawn art, which will be available today.
One came from the deep reaches of space and the other came from Chinatown, but both are capable of multiplying and destroying humanity at a rapid rate. Tomorrow, we will be releasing prints for two of our favorite 80's creature movies. Gremlins by Drew Millward and The Deadly Spawn by Phantom City Creative, respectively. We had unveiled this Deadly Spawn poster at a special Alamo Drafthouse Summer of '
Well as if their amazing limited prints weren’t enough, Mondo has extended their line to include a record label, releasing awesome vinyl releases of the soundtracks to William Lustig’s Maniac and Lucio Fulci’s The Beyond last year and continuing that this year with a brand new remastered 180 gram vinyl release of the soundtrack to Douglas McKeown’s awesome 1983 alien film, The Deadly Spawn. It comes in black and also a rare randomly inserted color variant designed to mimic the look
Much like Mondo's limited-edition poster sales, The Deadly Spawn will go on sale at a random time on January 4th. For more info, check out Mondo's blog.
If you're a fellow record lover, you'll be wanting to keep an eye on Mondo this Friday, that's when they release The Deadly Spawn soundtrack.
“If you noticed, we took the last couple of weeks of 2012 off. Why? Because we have some big things coming to you in January and they needed the proper attention. We just announced Ken Taylor’s Jurassic Park poster and we’ll be announcing the January gallery show soon, but this blog post will focus on one of of the most exciting things we’ll be expanding in 2013…. our record label.
Last year, we started a record label that focused on putting out great soundtracks on vinyl. Our first two offerings were Maniac and The Beyond. We also announced that we would be putting Drive out with Tyler Stout artwork for the packaging. (Quick update on that…

Last year, we started a record label that focused on putting out great soundtracks on vinyl. Our first two offerings were Maniac and The Beyond. We also announced that we would be putting Drive out with Tyler Stout artwork for the packaging. (Quick update on that… it’s done. Approved. And at the plant getting pressed.) We’ve been working very hard on getting choice titles and artists for packaging and we’re happy to announce that our first release for 2013 is being dropped this Friday, January 4th. This release just happens to be one of my favorite monster movies of all
Bringing you the best of Grindhouse cinema (without the sticky floors).
This month’s Double Feature: 42nd Street Forever Vol 1 and 42nd Street Forever Vol 2: The Deuce
This month we take a look at two DVD’s that highlight the real reason we risked life and limb by venturing into The Deuce- the previews!
So grab your popcorn (I sure hope that’s butter) and settle in for four full hours of Grindhouse excitement.
42nd Street Forever, Volume 1
As I mentioned before, half the fun of visiting a grindhouse theatre was watching the coming attractions. It took a special kind of film to play The Deuce, and the coming attractions really played up the exploitation elements of the movie. Its job was to hook you and reel you in so you would come back week after week…kind
We finish our countdown to Halloween in the current decade in which we live with a movie that I absolutely adore – Joe Cornish’s Attack The Block.
Being a fan of Channel 4’s Adam and Joe Show in my early teens and their 6Music radio show, I was very intrigued by Joe Cornish’s directorial debut. When the trailer for Attack the Block was released, I saw what a lot of people saw – chavs vs. aliens. Well, it certainly wasn’t what I was expecting from the man who gave the world American Beautoy. However upon actually watching the movie on opening night, I realised that the film is so much more than that.
The biggest problem people seem to have with Attack the Block is that the main
Well the 80s certainly had a lot to choose from when it came to picking horror movies – and it was hard to pin down a choice! I wanted to review The Thing and The Fly - two of my favourite horror movies, which are both proof that remakes can surpass their originals - but instead I landed on The Deadly Spawn. Don’t ask me how.
With a budget that could barely afford a multi-pack of Monster Munch, The Deadly Spawn (originally titled Return of the Aliens: The Deadly Spawn) is a colourful little horror film about alien creatures who attack a small town after a meteorite crashes nearby. While the film is fun, it can be summed up really quickly – it’s awesome when the aliens attack and it
Written and Directed by Stuart Simpson.
Starring Norman Yemm, Nelli Scarlet, Kyrie Capri, Karli Madden and Kate Watts.
Three gorgeous but lethal assassins arrive in a sleepy seaside town, where they accidentally awaken a vicious sea creature and have to fight for survival as the monster reaps its fury on the town.
With a crew that is so small that the Director’s Assistant and the 1st Ad get named in the opening credits, Stuart Simpson’s 2010 monster flick Monstro! rolls on to DVD today.
Simpson has the Garth Marenghi role in Monstro! by writing, directing, producing, shooting and editing the movie while helping out with the visual effects in post-production. It’s this low-budget “I’ll do everything myself” filmmaking that spawned from the likes of Robert Rodriguez, Quentin Tarantino and Kevin Smith that has dominated the indie filmmaking landscape

In 2005, Synapse Films created 42nd Street Forever, a compilation of sorts of the best of the worst trailers the grindhouse era had to offer. Having released 6 volumes of DVDs, Synapse has moved the series into the high def age with 42nd Street Forever: The Blu-ray Edition.
Obviously since this is nothing but a compilation of trailers, there isn't a real plot here. I do commend and appreciate Synapse for coupling the films together with their specific genres. It kicks off with Blaxsploitation and runs the gamut through zombies,
