In the mid-1980’s, English author Clive Barker released his six volume “Books of Blood” series, which brought together 30 short stories that tackled various horror subjects, from demons creatures to pure body horror and everything in between.

Next Week’s “Ash vs Evil Dead” Will Give Homage to ‘The Thing’!

One of the greatest scenes ever in a horror film is the “blood test” sequence in John Carpenter’s The Thing. The moment is set up when MacReady (Kurt Russell) administers blood tests to uncover who is infected by the Thing. Palmer (David Clennon) is unmasked as an imitation and transforms into a creature that kills […]

‘The Thing’ Prequel Writer Bares All on Twitter

The 2011 prequel The Thing was not exactly well received by fans of John Carpenter’s 1982 sci-fi/horror classic. While it did its best to recreate many of the things we’d seen in Carpenter’s vision, it eschewed practical FX for CGI that just looked…bad. Furthermore, the reviews for the film weren’t exactly kind. Many felt that […]

Doctor Who's Spinoff Class Gets Much Better When It Steps Out of the Doctor's Shadow

yesterdayGenres / Sci Fi : io9

Class’s first episode opens with a sequence so desperately Who-vian that you’d be forgiven for being a little surprised when the opening titles blast in with some pop rock and not the Doctor’s iconic theme song. But if the show can move past its barrage of tonal irregularities, it may end up being Doctor Who’s best spinoff yet. Read more...

Destrage’s ‘A Means to No End’ is the Most Fun You’ll Have Listening to a Metal Album This Year (Review)

I remember a couple of years ago when I first heard Protest the Hero’s “Clarity” off their (at the time) upcoming album Volition. That song, to this day, gets me insanely pumped up. I adore it, plain and simple. It got me so excited for the full album that I could barely contain myself when […]

Someone Mashed Wilford Brimley’s Diabetes Commercial With ‘The Thing’ [Halloween Treat]

Although I haven’t had cable or basic TV channels of any kind for well over two decades, I still remember clear as a bell Wilford Brimley’s Liberty Medical commercial where he spoke about his diabetes.

1995 ‘Judge Dredd’ Recut to Feel More Like the 2012 Version

While I can fully admit that 2012’s Dredd is a superior movie in pretty much every single way to 1995’s Judge Dredd, I’ll always hold a special place in my heart for that film. Yes, it’s terrible. Yes, it’s laughable. Yes, it’s a goddamn mess that made fans of the comic grown from the opening […]
