Imagineer Gary Goddard has devoted his entire career to creating, designing, and conceptualizing theme park attractions around the world including Jurassic Park: The Ride and The Adventures of Conan at Universal Studios, and when he was asked to come up with the design and creation of T2 3D: Battle Across Time (1996), a spin-off attraction of James Cameron’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day, he was faced with an incredible challenge. A 64 million dollar venture, T2 3D is a one-of-a-kind experience, which puts the audience in the middle of a post-apocalyptic adventure and the experience is unlike anything that had ever been attempted before. Goddard collaborated with James Cameron, who directed the film portion of the attraction, and the film featured the original stars of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, »
Classic zombie films don’t always produce classic scores, but occasionally a classic zombie opus features music that helps define the film. Imagine George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead or Day of the Dead without the iconic source music or original scores composed for them and what you’d have is an incomplete film. When directors Howard and Jon Ford hired composer Imran Ahmad to compose an original score for their epic zombie apocalypse film set in Africa, they found a collaborator who completed and enriched their film. Their collaborative effort, known simply as The Dead, is the result of what the Ford Brothers’ described as “gorilla filmmaking,” but more importantly, Imran’s contribution gave the film its sound and its singular voice. Without his score, The Dead simply would not be complete … or as iconic. »

Road to Hell, 2008.
Directed by Albert Pyun.
Albert Pyun’s Road to Hell is the kind of demented film only a very specific audience will be able to appreciate. For anyone who is familiar with the filmography of Mr. Pyun, a wide array of feelings and emotions will ensue and come to a boil when his films The Sword and the Sorcerer, Radioactive Dreams, Cyborg, or Captain America are brought up in conversation. Many people vehemently abhor his style of filmmaking, and others – like myself – consider him a true artist, despite that his canvas has gotten smaller and »
For some, Dutch actor Rutger Hauer will forever be associated with a certain rooftop speech about tears in rain. But although his turn as doomed replicant Roy Batty in Blade Runner was a classic one, Hauer’s output before and since has been stunningly prolific. This list, therefore, is designed to highlight 10 of Hauer’s finest non-Blade Runner movies, with a particular emphasis on those that are lesser known – which is why we've gone for some older pictures rather than the more recent and mainstream, such as Batman Begins. And since this is Den of Geek, expect to find lots of action movies, horror, and low-budget sci-fi in the entries below.
