There Will Not Be Killer Robots in the Planned ‘Chopping Mall’ Remake

Killer robots are just too silly these days, says the director. The villains of Jim Wynorski’s 1986 cult classic Chopping Mall are of course high-tech security robots that go on a killing spree inside of a shopping mall, dubbed “Killbots.” In fact, Killbots was the original title of the film. But there’s a Chopping Mall […]

"Good Night, Whatever You Are"

John Zacherle died, having just turned 98, on Thursday, October 27, a few days short of Halloween, a holiday he essentially personified. First as Roland out of Philadelphia, and more famously as Zacherley, the Cool Ghoul, in New York, he was a pioneering TV Horror Host. Show More Summary

Watch Lex Transform Into ‘Venom’ Using Body Paint

Way back in 2015, we highlighted the incredible work of Alexys “Lex” Fleming, a local bodypainter that has provided some of the coolest works of art over the past few years. One of our favorites was her rendition of Venom, the classic Spider-Man villain/anti-hero that’s getting his own movie. With the first teaser trailer released just […]

Gary Tunnicliffe Details ‘Hellraiser into Darkness,’ the ‘Hellraiser’ Film He Almost Made

Even before the release of Hellraiser: Judgment, writer/director Gary J. Tunnicliffe had mentioned another (early) iteration of the project titled Hellraiser into Darkness, but he didn’t provide any real details at the time other than describing it as a more traditional Hellraiser film than this year’s Judgment.

The 100 Best Horror Movies Ever Made (Ranked)

What makes a great horror film? Is it the number of scares? Or is it how effective the scares are? Is it the performances? Or maybe it’s the direction and cinematography. All of those qualities, combined with a plethora of others (the score, the lighting, etc.), contribute to the success of a great horror film. […]

Fantastic Video Edit Gives You the ’10 Cloverfield Lane’ Ending You Really Wanted

When we headed into the theater to see 10 Cloverfield Lane back in 2016, none of us had any idea what to expect. What we got was a contained thriller starring John Goodman in a nuanced role that should’ve nabbed him an Academy Award nom – one that then become a bonkers, alien monsters-invade-the-Earth movie […]

[Kill of the Week] Pickaxe Through the Throat and Eye in ‘My Bloody Valentine’

Every week, we spotlight a kill that we just can’t get enough of. This is Kill of the Week.

Child’s Play: 10 Films that Pit Kids Against Adults

When it comes to film there is maybe nothing more taboo than violence towards children (and dogs) and rightfully so. No reasonable person likes to see kids (or dogs) being violently attacked. In most cases it is highly disturbing and even in the most mundane situations it can be extremely unpleasant. Despite the ugliness associated with […]

[Horror Queers] The Villainous Cross-Dresser of ‘Insidious: Chapter 2’

Each month in Horror Queers, queer writers Joe and Trace tackle a horror film with LGBTQ+ elements, a high camp quotient or both.

Jesper Kyd Returns to Helm the Score for ‘Vermintide 2’

With the sequel to Fatshark’s Warhammer: The End Times – Vermintide (that would be Warhammer: Vermintide 2) due out later this year, thoughts turn once again to the soundtrack. It’s kind of a no-brainer, but Jesper Kyd will once again be doing the score for the game. In fact, as a bit of a preview, […]

Peter Parker to Appear In ‘Venom’, Not Spider-Man?

The filmmakers weren’t lying when they said Spider-Man wouldn’t appear in the Ruben Fleisher-directed Venom. You’ve got to love semantics… Earlier this week a rumor circulated that, contrary to original reports, Spider-Man would in fact swing into Sony’s Venom spinoff. This is sort of true if this new story checks out. It comes from the same source who […]

[Alpha and Omega] George A. Romero’s ‘The Dark Half’ and ‘Dawn of the Dead’

We unearth the details on George A. Romero’s arguably best and worst films, Dawn of the Dead and The Dark Half. ‘Alpha and Omega’ is a recurring feature that examines a famous horror director’s best critically received film and their worst reviewed installment (according to Rotten Tomatoes). It will compare and contrast these two efforts, […]

[Rumor] Will Tom Holland’s Spider-Man Appear In ‘Venom’?

Speculation often comes with an egg in the face, but this one is too good to pass up. Sony is deep into production on Venom, the first in a series of R-rated villain-themed Spider-Man spinoffs that stars Tom Hardy as the title character. Before turning into Venom, Eddie Brock was a journalist who was embarrassed […]

Is Capcom Getting Ready to Reveal the ‘Resident Evil 2’ Remake?

In what perhaps might finally be something on that long-awaited Resident Evil 2 remake, Capcom have made a few conspicuous changes to their Twitter accounts.

[TV Review] “The X-Files” Season 11 Episode 2: ‘This’

‘The X-Files’ leans into classic conspiracies and features an old friend—kind of—in an episode that struggles, but shows improvement. “They know that he knows.” When this return of The X-Files was originally announced, many fans were excited to see that much of the show’s original writing team was returning to pen these new scripts. Who […]

[TV Review] ‘The X-Files’ Season 11 Premiere: “My Struggle III”

“The X-Files” returns to pick up the pieces from last year’s finale, but it only creates a sloppier mess that undermines its audience. But hang in there. “Scully and her child have a bond beyond you; beyond science.” The X-Files’ 11th season comes in at an uphill battle. Last year’s 10th season return might have […]
