Tales from the Crypt (1989–1996)
Based upon the classic first novel of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ seven-book Pellucidar series and produced by British genre film company Amicus Productions, At the Earth’s Core (1976) is a star-studded tale of science fantasy complete with dinosaurs, a psychic master race of pteranodon-like monsters, and a caste-like civilization featuring a monkey-faced race who have enslaved the humans who populate the prehistoric land found inside the Earth.
Directed by Kevin Connor (The Land That Time Forgot; The People That Time Forgot; Warlords of the Deep; Motel Hell) and starring Doug McClure (The Land That Time Forgot; The People That Time Forgot; Roots; Humanoids from the Deep), the gorgeous Caroline Munro (The Spy Who Loved Me; Starcrash; Maniac), and the inimitable Peter Cushing, At the Earth’s Core is a fun, kid-oriented special effects extravaganza, with the emphasis on kid-oriented.

We chatted to director Steve Hughes about making Cbbc’s eerie anthology series Creeped Out and Doctor Who…
TV and film-making is an arduous, competitive business. Unless a project is particularly close to the hearts of those making it, it’s unlikely to survive the process. Talent and a good idea can get you part of the way, but it takes really, really loving that idea to drive it through to the end, attracting more talent and love along the way.

Cbbc’s Creeped Out buzzes with love from the people who make it. A thirteen-part eerie anthology series inspired by Spielberg’s Amazing Stories, it tells emotionally resonant horror, sci-fi and fantasy-tinged tales that are suitable for kids and irresistible to adults.
Released by Moviestore Entertainment stateside and by Cineplex-Odeon up here in Canada the following year, From a Whisper to a Scream (Aka The Offspring, which is what I knew it as) made back its $ 1.1 million budget plus a few dollars more, and the film received mixed reviews from critics in its limited release. Scrappy and mean, with a delightful turn from Vincent Price in the wraparound, From a Whisper to a Scream
With genre icon Dee Wallace already announced to appear HorrorCon UK organisers have announced the latest guest in attendance this year – none other than actor Billy Wirth (pictured below).

Darker than pitch and exploring areas of the human condition which others may shy away from ‘Black Museum’ works on multiple levels. A barren desert scrubland with nothing for miles except an imposing structure with blacked out windows. Inside are artefacts curated by a highly intelligent, morally flexible owner with stories to weave and exhibits of questionable benefit.
That is the launch pad for what may be season four’s darkest morality tale. Told with economy, told in partial flashback and featuring multi-faceted performances with a twist in the tail. Psychological torture goes hand in hand with groundbreaking advancements as ‘Black Museum’ explores the breadth of human endeavour, human frailties and human self-interest. Brooker once again stretches the boundaries of what is happening, expanding it out to an exaggerated yet perfectly plausible conclusion. Both stomach churning in theory and ultimately unhinged come those closing credits.

Released in its native U.K. in April and stateside in June, Nightmare (Aka the amazing Here’s the Knife, Dear: Now Use It) still has a lot of wandering down darkened hallways, but instead of coming up against the undead, our heroine has to do battle with her own brittle mind. Or has the dead come back for her?
Pity poor Janet (Jennie Linden – Old Dracula). Our film opens with her hearing a distant voice calling her name. She leaves the comfort of her bed and follows the whispered voice which leads her to a shadowed room where
Like the anecdotal, often epistolary stories of M.R. James, many of Le Fanu’s tales read as true hauntings written in an analytical or reminiscent style from the perspective of a witness. “An Account of Some Strange Disturbances in Aungier Street” or “An Authentic Narrative of a Haunted House” are, as they sound, entertaining reports.

The combination of Christmas cheer and icy terror may seem culturally nonsensical, but what better time to explore horror than the darkest nights of the year?

John Rhys-Davies tells us about Aux, autograph hunting, horror, the Lord Of The Rings TV series and more.
In the world of geekdom, Mr John Rhys-Davies is a legend. He may well have over two hundred and fifty acting credits to his name, but it’s his part in two of the biggest (and greatest) franchises of all time that will always leap to the forefront. As Sallah in both Raiders Of The Lost Ark and The Last Crusade and Gimli in the Lord Of The Rings trilogy, he portrayed characters whose external demeanors may have differed, but whose unswerving sense of loyalty and open heartedness made them something to treasure.
We were fortunate enough to have a chat with him over the phone about British horror film Aux, in which he plays an elderly WWII veteran, who has a unique insight into a recent spate of
Similar to other iconic anthology films like The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits, this movie centers on a group of individuals who enter the rundown Rialto Theatre. Their deepest and darkest fears are brought to life onscreen by the theater's projectionist (Rourke), a mysterious man who holds the nightmarish futures of all who attend — and cannot escape — his screenings.
Based on that description, one could possibly compare Rourke's role in the movie as host of sorts, similar to The Crypt Keeper in the popular horror series Tales From the Crypt.
THR shared the exclusive photo of Mickey Rourke as the creepy caretaker. and a few other images from the film. Check them out below!
