Classic Horror Trailers: Return Of The Living Dead!
12 hours ago
While Romero’s Day Of The Dead sits firmly in place as my favorite zombie film of all time, it’s not necessarily the most fun you’ll have when wanting something of a mix between horror and humor. The perfect film for that has been and will always be (in my opinion) Dan O’Bannon’s 1985 horror classic Return Of The Living Dead. It was the first film to inject a punk rock vibe to the zombie sub-genre, making it feel like it was something dangerous that your parents wouldn’t like and definitely wouldn’t understand, without coming off as being elitist or pretentious. It’s a movie that says “I just wanna party!” (literally) every single time that you watch it, so naturally, the trailer for the film is right up there with the amount of fun involved.

TV Review: From Dusk Till Dawn:The Series (Episode Six: “Place of Dead Roads”)
22 April 2014 10:53 PM, PDT
*As with the rest of the episode recaps for From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, this will have many spoilers in it, so if you’d rather not know exactly what happened without seeing it first, you’ve been warned.
Sorry folks, it’s been one hell of a crazy week, which explains why this recap of “Place of Dead Roads“, the sixth episode of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series is almost a week late. If you watched it when it aired, then you already know this, but if you didn’t then let me just say: this show is heating up. Guest directed by Halloween 4‘s Dwight H. Little, “Place of Dead Roads” was the most visually intense episode thus far, so expect more stills this time around.
Like the majority of the previous episodes, this week’s started out with a flashback. This time, we’re given »

New Book Focusing On Career Of Dario Argento, The Argento Syndrome Now Out, La Signing In May!
22 April 2014 7:14 PM, PDT
When it comes to reading books on any of the filmmakers that have help shaped the genre that I love so dearly, if you’re like me, the more interviews with the creative people involved in said filmmaker’s career, the better. I love reading about the stories, the wins, the losses and everything in between, and sometimes the horror stories of certain productions are the ones that stay with me after putting the book down. Fans of Dario Argento who are looking for quite the in-depth book about the Italian “master of horror”, can now rejoice, as Icons of Fright-friend Derek Botelho’s “The Argento Syndrome” is now available for mass consumption. Years in the making, the book features an essay on pretty much every film that the Italian maestro has made to date, complete with interviews with everyone from Dario’s daughter Asia to Giallo co-writer Sean Keller »

90′S Horror Kid TV Spotlight: Gravedale High
21 April 2014 11:30 AM, PDT
(Author’s Note: This is part of an ongoing series where Bj Colangelo takes a trip down memory lane and talks about the kid friendly horror TV shows from the 1990s/early 2000s that helped shape her into the horror loving fangirl she is today.)
Before Monster High dolls dominated the world of girl’s toys, there were a slew of high school horror themed cartoons in the late 1980s and early 1990s, but none were as awesome as Rick Moranis In Gravedale High. Anytime a television show attempts to gain momentum by name dropping Rick Moranis, it can be safely assumed I’m already going to be addicted. Although the show only ran for one season, the Universal Monster inspired cartoon high school became a quick favorite for 90′s kids and is still a popular source for fan-fiction and roleplaying communities today.
Gravedale High revolved around the misadventures of »
