Think of a teeming metropolis like New York City. Now double that in size. If every single person who lived there, every hot-dog vendor, third-grader and euphoric Mets fan, was in fact a flesh-eating zombie, that would roughly equal the 17.3 million people that tuned into last October's fifth-season premiere of AMC's The Walking Dead, the most-watched episode of anything in cable history. Those are blockbuster numbers and they occurred week after week. The demand for the show has become so huge that a prequel spinoff, Fear the Walking Dead, debuts this Sunday. »

Famous Monsters. Your sinister sonics gather together a monstrous myriad of influences includin’ the likes o’ sleaze rock, glam, punk, and of course horror rock.

The Walking Deceased follows a group of survivors from all walks of the apocalypse – an idiotic Sheriff with definite coma-induced brain damage, his hardass son, four squabbling friends forced to survive this zombieland together, and a lonely zombie who just needs love to fully regain his warm body. They all leave their once-safe hideout in search of the rumored Safe Haven Ranch, a refuge untouched by the zombie virus that has ravaged humanity. But despite the comforting name, they discover that this sanctuary may not be as welcoming as advertised.

The Walking Deceased, 2015.
Directed by Scott Dow.
A police officer wakes from a coma to discover that the zombie apocalypse has changed the world as he knew it. Sounds familiar…
You generally know that an idea has peaked when the spoofs and parodies start appearing; the problem with the zombie genre is that arguably the first comedic take appeared 30 years ago with Return of the Living Dead and has shown little sign of letting up, especially now anybody with a computer and a graphics programme can seemingly knock something vaguely passable together to keep Asda customers happy.
Primarily riffing on AMC’s The Walking Dead, The Walking Deceased also takes pot-shots at Zombieland, 28 Days Later, Shaun of the Dead and the inescapable Dawn of the Dead as it follows Sheriff Lincoln (Dave Sheridan), Chicago (Joey Oglesby, »

Ah, cockroaches. They just don’t get much love in the Horror genre. One would think that these lowly creatures, clicking and flitting, scurrying and shuttling from dark to light would be prime fodder for terror terrain. However, up until 1988’s The Nest, there are only a handful of critter flicks starring these grotesque end- of- the- worlders. Concorde Pictures (Roger Corman’s latest company at the time) unleashed this gloriously gruesome roach-a-rama on an unsuspecting public and watched them squirm with delight.
Actually, The Nest only received a limited release by Concorde, but made its coin when it was released on video by MGM later that same year. Reviews were generally positive, with critics seeing it as a good natured update of 1950’s monster movies, of course with new, improved and gnarly special effects. The Nest is, shall we say, a great deal moister than its bug strewn brethren of yore. »

Having been reworked and beefed up after it's debut at Sundance last year, the current cut of the horror comedy Cooties most recently bowed at the Stanley Film Festival. Our Michele Galgana caught the 're-edited with added action at the end' flick at Stanley and had this to say in her review....it's a return to the days of '70s and '80s cinema where there were no rules about who could die or be terribly maimed onscreen. At its most common, Cooties feels a bit like a sitcom, but one that's actually really funny. At its most exhilarating, it feels like a blend of Who Can Kill A Child? and Return of the Living Dead, an excellent blend of fast-paced hilarity and madness. And now there is this...

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, »

The downfall that faced Tobe Hooper's creative relationship with The Cannon Group in the eighties wasn't much different than the fate of George A. Romero's collaboration with Orion Pictures. After leaving an iconic legacy for horror in the previous decade, Hooper had a reputation to live up to when he made a three picture deal with Golan and Globus that resulted in the ambitious, but entertaining failure Lifeforce, the misunderstood parody The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, and the family friendly remake of Invaders From Mars that helped sink Cannon out of Hollywood forever.
When considering the talent involved in this production that included screenwriting duties from Dan O' Bannon and special effects from legends like Stan Winston (who was simultaneously working on James Cameron's Aliens), John Dykstra (Star Wars) and Alec Gillis, this quite frankly should have been an exhilarating fantasy spectacle at the very least. Ironically, »

Fans of Tobe Hooper’s 1986 film Invaders From Mars can jump for joy, with Scream Factory’s new Collector’s Edition bluray hitting shelves, and it’s definitely a release to check out. Loaded to the brim with brand new and retro special features, the film does an excellent job of bringing back not only a sense of nostalgia for old school fans of the film, but introduces a fun and campy ride for its new viewers.
Personally, I think the film and its content all speak for themselves, but just in case you have a question or two regarding the release, we’ve got you covered, having taken a look at the release and we can definitely assure you, it’s one of the most entertaining family-horror films of all time.

Doc of the Dead, 2015.
Directed by Alexandre O. Philippe.
Apparently, this is the definitive documentary examining the rise of the zombie in modern pop culture. Hmm…
Think you know zombies? Of course you do, because no doubt you have seen Shaun of the Dead on one of its weekly showings on some made-for-twentysomethings TV channel or own one of the many DVD releases of Night of the Living Dead that likely includes a documentary or an interview with George A. Romero that covers everything you need to know about that seminal movie and the influence it has had. So what does Doc of the Dead have to offer that several dozen DVD extra features doesn’t? Not a great deal, if truth be told.
