Tonight, March 11th, marks the premiere of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, exclusively airing on Robert Rodriguez’ new El Rey Network. An expansion on the characters and story seen in the 1996 film, the show will center on brothers Seth and Richie Gecko, who find themselves battling off hordes of blood-sucking vampires, alongside the kidnapped Fuller family (above).
If From Dusk Till Dawn, the movie, is any indication of what we can expect from the series, we’re in store for buckets of blood and a whole lot of fun. I think it’s also safe to say that we can expect some pretty creative vampire kills, courtesy of some pretty creative weapons, which were on display throughout the film. From a holy water-spewing Super Soaker to the particularly memorable ‘codpiece revolver,’ From Dusk Till Dawn features some of the most truly creative weapons in horror movie history.

Make no mistake about it -- the '90s are back. Myriad people are sporting flannel and backwards baseball hats, Furbys are the "new" hot toys, and even Nirvana seems to have gained popularity again recently. Since one of the most gnarly decades is rearing its grungy head again, how else should one reminisce about the good 'ol days than to list of the baddest Bettys of the 1990s? Read on, and count down the boss femme fatales of the '90s.
10. Vera Cosgrove - Dead Alive (1992)
You may think she's just another crazy old white woman, but Vera Cosgrove is much more sociopathic than the average spinster. She won't let her son go, even after she's dead and walking. When Lionel Cosgrove takes his mother to the zoo, she gets bitten by a Sumatran rat monkey, and immediately feels ill. Her health goes downhill quickly, and after much pain and swelling, »

Cinema is often paradoxical: it's full of situations where opposites attract, or things are so wrong they're right, and we often see good characters go bad. As patrons of the cinema, we are frequently attracted to these paradoxes, and this is especially the case with movie characters so hideously deformed or badly misshapen that they circle back around to being adorable. We don’t know quite what to do with these anomalies... do we hug them, or run away screaming? With that in mind, let's count down seven of our favorite creatures in cinema (and one runner-up) that are so ugly they're cute. When you wrap up with this one, be sure to check out horror loving kids and the parents who encourage it. Bad Milo Sometimes one’s inner turmoil manifests itself as a living thing. And sometimes that living thing has murderous intent and lives in its host »

He goes by the name VidVad Scare, and he's a San Antonio-based artist. That's just about all we know about the man whose work we're here to shine the spotlight on today, but if his whacky creations are any indication, VidVad is a dude who enjoys the finer things in life; monsters, madmen, mutants and macabre madness!
All of these things are on display in Mr. Scare's unique artwork, which oftentimes mashes up fan-favorite horror characters with iconic pop culture imagery. Gizmo is riding Slimer in one piece of art while a Ghoulie and Dead Alive's baby Selwyn are doing battle in another. Other pieces include a fun and totally unexpected Curious George/Evil Dead mash-up, a fusion of Hellraiser and Q*bert and a Universal Monsters remake of Where the Wild Things Are.
