“Sure you’re ready for this kind of responsibility, son?”
This is tragedy.
When we first learned about Afterlife with Archie, it sounded like high camp, a way for the squeaky-clean Riverdale gang to get its hands dirty with the latest pop culture trend. It hasn’t turned out that way, because writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and artist Francesco Francavilla understand that in order to make a horror story scary, you have to love the people in peril. Archie comics have existed since the early 1940s, and by the nature of familiarity, the creators don’t have to work hard to generate affection or sympathy for these characters; it’s already there, ingrained into our collective consciousness. It’s to Aguirre-Sacasa’s and Francavilla’s credit that they do work hard to earn that affection, treating Afterlife as a reader’s first exposure to these people.

Fox has picked its Bruce Wayne for Gotham, and it’s … a little kid! Which makes perfect sense, of course. I don’t know why the hell I thought it would be a hot twenty-something.
I’m verklempt. I mean seriously having palpitations. I already posted the audio of “Barracuda” from tonight’s Glee, and here are Santana, Elliot, and Rachel doing Laura Branigan‘s classic “Gloria” (a song which may come in … very high … on my Top 100 Ladies of The 80′s List). The late Laura is my second all-time favorite singer, and I love when she gets recognition.

Original airdate – May 15th, 1990
There’s a reason I don’t usually remember the Tales From the Crypt episodes with no supernatural leanings – it’s because they’re bland. Look, every episode, you’ll find a single certainty: there’s going to be someone getting killed or someone deserving of some major cosmic comeuppance, and then they get their just desserts. It’s how Gaines structured the books. But taking away the supernatural element, makes damn sure that the whole reason for watching the show is gone; because there isn’t a monster that’s going to come back in the last act and take vengeance for the untimely death of the victim or victims in question. So, what you’re left with in the end, is just human cruelty without the comic book retribution that makes the death and gore so much easier to swallow. But the problem with »

At a recent signing at Dark Delicacies, I was able to sit down with Lance Henriksen and speak for a few moments. I thought we would be talking about his recent western/supernatural graphic novel project with Joe Maddrey entitled To Hell You Ride, but, as you'll soon encounter like I did in this multi-part interview, the conversation soon took on a life of its own. Fearnet: I hear that you and Joe Maddrey have been working on the graphic novel To Hell You Ride for a couple of years. Henriksen: Yeah. Tom Mandrake lives in New Jersey and Joe and I live out here [in California]. What started all of this is that I wrote a script 20-25 years ago called Telluride. A Western? It was this story. I was down at Comic-Con and Mike Richardson [of Dark Horse Comics] shook my hand and said, "Do you want to do a comic? I just shook your hand, »

Now that Miss Robichaux’s Academy is closed for business after a season which played out like the bastard offspring of Dennis Wheatley and Jacqueline Susann, American Horror Story fanatics are already filled with a giddy sense of anticipation at what demented devilry the show’s creators will serve up when the fourth season rolls around in the fall.
The kind of creative risks and innovative storytelling displayed in American Horror Story might well have proven the kiss of death for a show in less capable hands. Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk cunningly side-stepped this by utilizing an anything-goes format and taking a familiar core concept (i.e. haunted house, institution, witches coven) in a refreshingly bold direction where nothing is outside the realm of possibility (and in many instances: of plausibility) and absolutely nothing is sacred.
So it begs the question: where will they go next? We know that »

Adriana Polito, one of the producers of the superb body horror short Dysmorphia, turns her hand to writing and directing with the horror comedy She Wolf of the Woods, which follows forest ranger Amy as she goes about her day-to-day business in a small Scottish village – which just happens to include burying evidence of crimes in the woods and picking up strangers in local bars!
One such (un)lucky stranger is Ben, an American looking to trace his Scottish routes, who is picked up by Amy and taken back to her place for what he thinks will be a night of quick and easy sex. But what he doesn’t bargain on is Lucille, Amy’s room mate – who just happens to be a werewolf!

Time traveling teenager Marty McFly and his rascally mad scientist best friend Doc Brown are about to go someplace they've never been: the London stage! That's right, "Back to the Future," the immortal 1985 Robert Zemeckis comedic fantasy, is being retooled as a musical, just in time for its 30th anniversary next year (according to The Wrap). Unfortunately it's not doubling as a Huey Lewis & the News jukebox musical, although the Huey Lewis & the News tunes that were featured in the movie will be reproduced for the musical. That's the power of love!
Zemeckis and his co-writer and producer Bob Gale, who haven't worked together since the HBO series "Tales from the Crypt" back in the early '90s, will re-team to write the book with the play's director Jamie Lloyd. The show is being produced by Universal State Productions and Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment and will premiere somewhere on the West End. »

Peter Cushing (1913-1994) was one of the most respected and important actors in the horror and fantasy film genres. To his many fans, the British star was known as ‘The Gentle Man of Horror’ and is recognized for his work with Hammer Films which began in the late 1950’s, but he had numerous memorable roles outside of Hammer. A topnotch actor who was able to deliver superb performances on a consistent basis, Peter Cushing also had range. He could play both the hero and the villain with ease.
Super-8 Peter Cushing Movie Madness takes place February 4th at The Way Out Club in St. Louis and will be a great way to celebrate the actor’s career. The event is on February 4th beginning at 8pm. Condensed versions (average length: »

With the recent news that Marvel Studio’s upcoming movie, Ant-Man, would be moving up its release date to July 17th, 2015, as well as the announcements regarding Michael Douglas’ casting as Hank Pym (the first Ant-Man) and Paul Rudd’s casting as Scott Lang (the second Ant-Man), Marvel’s tiniest hero is looking to make waves in a big way. On that note, Collider thought this was a great chance to fill you in on who both these Ant-Men were, what they’ve done, and how this may be shown in the upcoming tentpole. Hit the jump for a breakdown of the smallest Avenger. Tiny Beginnings Hank Pym was originally a humble scientist within the confines of the Marvel Universe and didn’t even become Ant-Man proper until a follow-up appearance. His first appearance was in “Tales to Astonish #27” which was more like something from Tales from the Crypt than »

Horror always had a strong foothold in the history of television. That's a natural progression from horror's dominance as a genre people turned to during the radio days. But it seems like, in years past, horror on television was full of wit, macabre humor, and a sense of fun that we don't see anymore. Naturally something as spooky and fun as a great old horror TV show would deserve its own board game - so today, we take at look at five of our favorite old board games based on spooky shows!
The Addams Family Game (1974)
We can't talk about horror television without talking about The Addams Family. The seminal horror comedy made its television debut as a sitcom from '64-'66, then a 1973 animated series, then a 1992 animated series, and then it went on to have several remakes, a few movies, and tons of other franchised wonders. And while »
