New York Daily News continues to parody Donald Trump with a new cover depicting the president as Austin Powers’ nemesis, which hits newsstands Thursday. Here’s more cover art that takes shots at Trump. German publication Der Spiegel published its cover of Trump with Lady Liberty’s severed head in one hand, and a bloody knife in the other, on Feb. 3. New York Daily News paid homage to horror classic “Dawn of the Dead” with its Feb. 10, 2016 cover, which depicts Trump (then New Hampshire primary winner) as the cult leader of a “mindless” mass. New York Daily News didn’t hold back from making. »

Andy Warhol was nothing if not a multi-media maven. Along with his ubiquitous silkscreens and sculpture, he embraced movie-making beginning as early as 1963 with such literal-minded efforts as Haircut (a haircut) and Taylor Mead’s Ass (one hour of exactly what you think) and pretty much closed shop with 1968’s Lonesome Cowboys, a 109 minute western satire that, of all his films, came closest to approximating a traditional tinseltown production.
Essentially Warhol was parodying the Hollywood studio system, rounding up his acolytes and hangers-on, from supermodels to pushers, and casting them as regular performers in a series of deadpan documentaries. Meanwhile in the wilds of Baltimore, Warhol fan John Waters »

One of the fun things about remakes/reboots is that little nods to the original can be made in clever and interesting ways. For example, in Zack Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead remake, there’s a clothing store in the mall called… Continue Reading →

Originally released by Penguin's Plume imprint back in the summer of 1982, the Creepshow graphic novel features Stephen King's five EC Comics-style tales that were brought to life on screen by the Godfather of the Living Dead in one of the horror genre's ultimate anthologies.
The panels are packed with Bernie Wrightson's eye-popping artwork, which can be enjoyed anew soon when the Creepshow graphic novel goes back in print for a May 9th re-release (just don't let Billy's father find you reading it, or it might end up in the trash can).
You can check out Jack Kamen's official cover art below (via Lilja's Library) and visit the graphic novel's Amazon page for more information.

There was a time before Guardians of the Galaxy when filmmaker James Gunn was better known for horror films like Slither and for writing the screenplay for Zack Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead remake. One of the movies Gunn had been talking about making for almost as long was a violent high-concept thriller called The Belko Experiment, which as you can guess from the title, has finally seen the light of day. (Gunn went on to make the low-budget action-comedy Super, got the gig directing Guardians and the rest is history.)
The Belko Corporation has a large branch office building in the middle of Bogota, Colombia, and we meet the company’s CEO Barry Norris (Tony Goldwyn from Scandal) as he’s arriving at work and noticing the new armed security detail carefully checking everyone entering the building. Before we can think too much about this, we meet Melonie Diaz »

It’s as simple as this: if the above logline for The Belko Experiment tickles your fancy, it’s worth checking out. Written by James Gunn (while most known for directing Guardians of the Galaxy he has also proven his expertise in horror and black comedy with projects such as Slither and the remake of Dawn of the Dead) and directed by Greg McLean (currently »

When it comes to The Walking Dead, I enjoy the episodes that are more action packed. Too many times we tend to see things get bogged down in how evil Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is this week, or how tormented Rick (Andrew Lincoln) is with his choices, or who wants to get revenge this week. Sometimes though, there are some less action based episodes that do work, one of them being this weeks.
While I say less action based, this doesn’t mean that we don’t see plenty of zombie killing, because we do. More importantly though this is more of a character based episode where Rick and Michonne (Danai Gurira) get to spend some relaxing time away from Alexandria, »

Toy Fair is an annual trade show where hundreds of toy companies get together to showcase their latest innovations for buyers and press. The following is a photo recap from the Mezco booth. To see the rest of our coverage, click Here.
About 2 ½ years ago Mezco unveiled the One:12 Collective at Comic Con and the line has been rapidly growing ever since. Drawing from comics, film, and pop culture, these 6” scale figures are about the same size as the ones you will find from Hasbro at your local Toys R Us. However, these figures feature real fabric clothing, multiple heads/accessories, extreme articulation, and incredible detail. Basically they take the best qualities from high-end brands such as Hot Toys but shrink them down to half the size for a third of the price. Some of their licenses on display included DC Comics, Marvel, Ghostbusters, Popeye, Evil Dead, and Star Trek. »

The annals of horror history are infested with the living dead. And most movie fans would conjure up the same mental picture of a zombie: slow, groaning, hungry for human brains.
But like anything else – living or, erm, living dead – the zombie comes in many forms. It’s evolved and changed, taking on new traits and characteristics with each new generation of seminal zombie movies.
With Train to Busan released on DVD, Blu-ray, and VOD this week, we’ve put together an essential guide for anyone who enjoys a bit of “zombie spotting”, detailing the most common – and rarest – types of undead brain-munchers out there.
“The Voodoo Classic”
As Seen In: White Zombie (1932)
Defining Characteristics: With their cloaks, big moustaches, and pirate-style baggy pants, they look more like extras from a Gilbert & Sullivan production than your standard reanimated corpse.
Natural Habitat: Haiti, where they exist under the control of »

Train to Busan, 2016.
Directed by Sang-ho Yeon.
A selfish businessman reconnects with his young daughter on a train journey across South Korea, albeit against a backdrop of marauding zombies.
You would have thought that the zombie genre had all but dried up given that movies concerning the undead coming back to life had long ago resigned themselves to the direct-to-dvd bargain bin and the seemingly immortal The Walking Dead TV show had claimed the mantle of being the standard-bearer for all things zombie related. However, all is not lost for those still hungry for a bloodthirsty gut-cruncher with a socio-political message as j offers up all of those old-school George A. Romero-style commentaries amongst several flurries of new-school zombie action in a way that won’t offend hardcore fans of either style.

We’ve all been in that weird, unnerving situation where it seems like everyone in the room is completely different than you. This seems to happen much more these days in the divisive landscape that we currently experience in America. Get Out takes the premise of a stranger in a strange world, adds in some pertinent social commentary about race and racism, and mixes it up with an interesting horror angle that is both disturbing and darkly humorous.
Jordan Peele, one half of the sketch comedy series Key and Peele, showcases some serious genre filmmaking chops in his directorial debut. Though that shouldn’t be too big of a surprise for those who watch his comedic television show, which has tackled the genre of horror and different social commentary themes on numerous occasions. It also shouldn’t be a surprise that Peele pays homage to horror scares with near perfect »
