Rlj/Image Entertainment is getting prepared to make fans ecstatic, when they unleash The Twilight Zone: The Complete ’80s Series onto DVD next week (August 26th). The updated take on Rod Serling’s classic and beloved series lasted three seasons, from 1985 to 1989 and showcased episodes like two of my favorites, the heartbreaking William Sanderson (Blade Runner, Sometimes They Come Back)-led episode “The Call“, and Wes Craven’s “Shatterday” episode with Bruce Willis.
“Travel into the fifth dimension once again with The Twilight Zone, testing the limits of reality and exploring the mysteries of the universe. Airing from 1985 to 1989, this critically acclaimed anthology series carried on the legacy of the original Rod Serling program and attracted a brand new audience of fans.

I don’t often get time to read a lot of books these days, but I knew that Joseph Maddrey had a couple of genre-related titles coming out and I needed to make the time. A few years ago, Maddrey teamed up with iconic actor Lance Henriksen for the wonderfully engaging Not Bad for a Human, and Maddrey’s latest literary efforts- Beyond Fear and A Strange Idea of Entertainment-are both equally informative and compelling reads for any horror fan.
Beyond Fear: Reflections on Stephen King, Wes Craven and George Romero’s Living Dead focuses on Maddrey’s analysis and reflections on three of our genre’s most influential storytellers and how their visions uniquely shaped the landscape of horror entertainment over the last several decades. Considering we live in a world where we seem to have a documentary about practically every possible subject out there now, there’s actually »

Before he ever went to hell, fought Freddy, froze through time, or launched into space, Jason Voorhees embarked on one of the scariest, weirdest and most craziest frontiers of them all: New York.
Friday The 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan stands as a classic amongst Jason Junkies, forever revered and remembered as the hockey mask’s first outing outside Crystal Lake (unless you count Part 2, in which Jason tracks down his mom’s decapitator and bumps her off during the first five), as well as Paramount’s final stab into the billion dollar franchise. And like its unstoppable poster boy who never dies, the 13th legacy will always remain—along with generations of fans requesting tales and testimonies from those who have taken part in the Jason saga.
One such participant, actor/producer/writer Vc “Julius” Dupree who starred in Jason Takes Manhattan, commemorates »
