Is it just me, or are there not nearly enough horror-themed Christmas ornaments out there? Sure, Hallmark released Jaws and Alien ornaments this year, but there are sadly so many other classics that will never get the treatment. You can,… Continue Reading →

Zombie Concept Art for The Return Of The Living Dead

21 October 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Here's a great series of concept art for the 1985 cult horror film The Return of the Living Dead. The early pre-production art features various zombie characters from the movie. These were done by illustrator William Stout, and the art served as a basis for creating the makeup and effects for the movie. If you haven't seen this film yet, you should give it a go. It's actually a really fun and entertaining horror comedy. Here's a brief plot summary: 

When two bumbling employees at a medical supply warehouse accidentally release a deadly gas into the air, the vapors cause the dead to rise again as zombies.

I also included the trailer for the movie. Thanks to Stan Winston School of Character Arts for the art.

‘Caesar And Otto’s Deadly Xmas’ Review

16 October 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Dave Campfield, Paul Chomicki, Linnea Quigley, Deron Miller, Summer Ferguson | Written by Dave Campfield, Joe Randazzo | Directed by Dave Campfield

It would be pointless – not to mention foolish – to judge Caesar And Otto’s Deadly Xmas by the same standards as other films. This is chiefly because if we did we’d have to face up to the fact that this Christmas-themed horror/campfest doesn’t even deserve in the same VHS bargain bins as the films it clumsily imitates. That said, if the only movies people ever enjoyed were the good ones then…well, Netflix wouldn’t exist, for one thing.

With that in mind, I decided to view Caesar And Otto in the spirit in which I hope and pray it was intended: with tongue firmly embedded in cheek. It’s a good thing I did so immediately, as an early scene sees the recent recipient of »

Icons of Fright Interview With The Demon’S Rook Director James Sizemore

29 September 2014 6:08 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Tribeca Films’ The Demon’S Rook

If you’re a fan of practical and gory, balls to the wall horror, then be ready. The upcoming Tribeca Films’ release (hitting iTunes and VOD September 30th), The Demon’S Rook, is a horror film that lovers of Italian horror, practical effects and just good ol’ splatter-filled carnage can sink their teeth into. A truly independent venture, Director James Sizemore not only directed the film, but also co-wrote, c-produced and stars in the film, showing that he’s a force to be reckoned with, a filmmaker who isn’t afraid to get his hands (and his actors) dirty. Sizemore was nice enough to briefly talk to us about The Demon’S Rook and what’s next on his plate.

Invaders from Mars (1986) review

24 September 2014 12:54 AM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Kevin Scott

Invaders from Mars (1986)

Directed by: Tobe Hooper

Written by: Richard Blake, Don Jakoby, and Dan O’Bannon

Cast: Hunter Carson (David Gardner), Karen Black (Linda Magnusson), Timothy Bottoms (George Gardner), Laraine Newman (Ellen Gardner), James Karen (Gen. Climet Wilson), Bud Cort (Mark Weinstein)

The best that I can tell, nostalgia runs on a thirty year cycle. I can speculate that what everybody watches as children, shapes them into adults with a deep seated desire to emulate it or watch it being emulated. A select few make it to a position where they can actually interject that nostalgia into the contemporary mainstream, and satisfy both the fans of the original material, but also put such a spit shine on the old premise that even the youngsters dig it, and have no idea that it’s based on something way older than they are.

88 Films announce Slasher Classics Collection: Wave 2

17 September 2014 11:04 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

The first wave of 88 Films’ Slasher Classics Collection hasn’t even hit stores yet and the company have released details of “wave 2″ – including four worldwide Blu-ray premieres, each debuting with new HD scans from the original materials approved by the directors themselves!

Check out the press release below, as well as the awesome – if temporary – artwork (click to enlarge):

First up is 1984’s Splatter University. Unavailable in the UK since the glory gory days of VHS tapes, this satirical campus-set sickie is one of the bloodiest and barmiest slasher-shockers ever made. Headlining the feisty Forbes Riley as a teacher trying to work out why her classes are featuring increasingly less students, Splatter University picks up the pace with a succession of superb sanguine-packed massacre-moments. A maniacal murder-mystery that is not afraid to crack out the crimson, Splatter University turns up the suspense en route to an outrageous conclusion. From »

“Zombie Films and The Dead 2″ Article/Review: The Dead 2

15 September 2014 1:14 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The zombie subgenre has ran itself into a wall in the last few years. now, before you Walking Dead fanatics crucify me (we’ve all seen how passionate comments can get when you mention anything regarding those beloved characters), just take a seat and relax and let me explain. When Romero’s Night Of The Living Dead came out, it changed things and for its time, it was scary as hell. When Romero followed that up with Dawn Of The Dead and Day Of The Dead, Fulci hit fans with Zombi, and various other filmmakers put their spin on the idea of the dead coming back to life, it was still a pretty good and growing subgenre of horror that showed a thriving future for the undead. Dan O’Bannon’s Return Of The Living Dead put more of a comedic spin on things, but still…it felt like a »
