Lately I’ve been reveling in the fact that horror has made a huge resurgence on the small screen within the last few years. Back when I was a youngster in the late eighties, horror had a small presence on television, but albeit in a different form. Most of what was on the air then were memorable anthology series ranging from the wonderful reincarnation of the beloved The Twilight Zone to Tales From the Darkside and Amazing Stories to series based on well-known horror franchises: Friday the 13th begat its own series and A Nightmare On Elm Street brought forth the ultra-cheesy and fun Freddy’s Nightmares. I love that there are quite a number of series now on the air to choose from. But unfortunately, the quality varies between them on a great scale. With some of them now having established loyal audiences and rabid cult followings, in their »

Some sequels are so bad that fans don’t even care to acknowledge them, and the latter two installments in the Return of the Living Dead franchise fit that bill. Shot back-to-back, Necropolis and Rave to the Grave premiered on Syfy… Continue Reading →

Hey, kid! Wanna buy a zombie movie? Shock stumbled upon this interesting Ebay auction in which the producers of the 5th (and arguably worst) Return Of The Living Dead sequel, Ellory Elkayem’s 2005 thingie Return Of The Living Dead: Rave To The Grave, are selling off the entire cannibalistic kit and caboodle. That’s right, according…

In our ongoing recap of last week's Ultimate Horror Poll -- in which over 100 genre experts helped determine the 100 greatest horror movies of all time by voting for their personal "ten best" -- the time has come to take stock of every honorable mention and clarification given by the survey's participants that weren't included in the original piece. To be clear, voters weren't asked for honorable mentions specifically; but a handful felt strongly enough about their "bubbling under" choices to list them anyway (which proved extraordinarily useful in helping break ties on the Top 100). See below for a full listing, as well as explanations from Bloody-Disgusting founder/editor-in-chief Brad Miska and director Corin Hardy ("The Hallow") on why they voted the way they did. Honorable Mentions: Barbara Crampton (Actor, "Re-Animator") Dracula (1931) Jaws (1975) Nosferatu (1922) Poltergeist (1982) Vampyr (1932) Brad Miska (Founder/Editor-in-Chief, Bloody-Disgusting.com; Producer) -- See Full Explanations Below Beetlejuice (1988) Bill & Ted's »

Spoiler Alert: This blog is for people watching Downton Abbey series six. Don’t read on if you haven’t seen series six, episode five.
Oh, for heaven’s sake, this programme is so totally bonkers. I have never seen Carrie, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre or Return of the Living Dead. But now I don’t feel like I need to see any of those things. Because I’ve seen this. And I can never unsee it.

As you may remember from my last column (and you better… you better), The Diabolical was well and truly “the s–t”! Well, guess what, creeps? That’s right, that flick’s co-writer/die-rector Alistair Legrand has stopped by the Crypt o’ Xiii to talk all about his foray into our beloved horror biz!
Famous Monsters. Welcome Big A! As this is yer first time at the rodeo known as the horror biz, what challenges did you face bringin’ The Diabolical to the screen?
Alastair Legrand. First of all, I can’t believe I’m talking to Famous Monsters; this is amazing. In response to your question, this was the best graduate film program I could have done, and a proper response would be ten pages long. The first main challenge was convincing the producers that I was the right man for the job—proving to them that I had »

The zombie movie is a genre unlike any other in film. It can be a complete exploitation vehicle replete with buxom babes and crazy flesh eaters. It can be stylistically well put together and elevate both the genre and medium. Or, it can serve as a metaphor for the times we are living in. When MovieWeb interviewed the Godfather of zombie films, George A. Romero, he was asked if he wanted to make anymore Dead films. To paraphrase, he said that he did but he wanted to have the films "mean something." One could argue that you could do this in any genre, but there is something about the zombie genre that lends itself to metaphors.
So what makes a great zombie movie? Is it the FX? Is it the story? Is it how it might speak to the events of our time? Is it the Walking Dead themselves? It »

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. »
