Legacy of the Dead: George A Romeo's Contribution to the Zombie Canon

17 August 2014 8:22 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

With his 1968 film Night of the Living Dead, horror director George A. Romero effectively re-invented not merely the zombie mythos but the horror genre as we know it today. Since that movie came out, zombies have become ubiquitous in pop culture, seeing a resurgence in the past decade with the smash TV hit The Walking Dead along with not only self-aware “zom coms” like Shaun of the Dead and World War Z, but also Romero's own work. Read on to learn more about his indelible contribution to the horror genre.

Night of the Living Dead is largely considered one of the most frightening films of all time. Made with just $114,000, it went on to gross more than $30 million worldwide, becoming a bonafide classic that is preserved in the National Film Registry, and it’s been imitated countless times.

Book Review: 'Stephen King Films Faq' by Scott Von Doviak

13 March 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Writing about Stephen King movies is always an interesting – if daunting – prospect. If one wanted to be a stickler about things, there are really only a few actual “Stephen King films”: from Creepshow to A Good Marriage, they’re listed under "Screenplays" on the “also by Stephen King” page at the front of most of the man’s books. But that’s limiting.

Nightfall in Beacon Hills hasn’t proven to be a very peaceful time; it might have something to do with all the werewolves and demons running around. The night in which ‘Riddled’ takes place is no exception, as Scott’s evening begins with a phone call from his best friend, Stiles, who has apparently sleepwalked his way into an industrial basement and been accosted by a bear trap.

With the temperature falling and Stiles already suffering the first signs of hypothermia, the race is on to find him before he freezes to death and just about every character on the show pitches in with the search. One of the most useful participants is ...
