Dracula Face-Off: Christopher Lee Vs. Gary Oldman

The majority agreed with the Phantasmic outcome of our last Face-Off that Phantasm II deserved to top Phantasm. I'm glad that everyone also basically agreed that this is a very good horror series with balls. Alright, let's move on. Today's Face-Off is here to suck your blood! With Hammer Studios opening The Quiet Ones this past weekend, the studio's greatest icon, Count Dracula, was...

Top 10 Frankenstein Flicks!

So, who's pumped for I, FRANKENSTEIN coming out this week? To be honest, as much as I dig the sick Doctor's age old creation of the patchwork zombie with moral shadings - I kind of think this new Aaron Eckhart joint looks pretty silly. I mean, a PG-13 January release? Not very promising in my opinion. Unfortunate, again, mainly for the rich tradition of such a venerated character born...

Get a sneak preview of Christopher Lee's new Christmas song!

It must have been a roaring success, because this December brings us the follow-up, "A Heavy Metal Christmas Too." God bless the man, who is 91-years-old and still going strong. Below you'll get a preview of one of the...

Hammer classic The Mummy coming to Region 2 DVD/Blu-Ray this month

If you're anything like me you enjoy revisiting the classics of the genre that influenced all of the films that we love so much today, and October is the best month (in my opinion) to revisit or rediscover many of the best films of yesteryear. And who amongst you is not a fan of Hammer Horror? During the 1950's though the 1970's Hammer delivered some of the greatest films in...

Kill of the Day: Horror of Dracula (1958)

Today is Friday the 13th people! Now while a kill from the FRIDAY THE 13TH franchise might be the obvious choice for today's Kill of the Day I'm going to throw you all a curve ball and go with something completely different! Instead of Jason hacking away at some poor co-ed today we're treated to the epic battle between Peter Cushing, as Dr. Van Helsing, and Christopher Lee, as the...

Horror Whores: Dark Shadows (2012)

How do you guys feel about Tim Burton's DARK SHADOWS? From what I can tell the think has gotten a pretty mixed bag. Personally I didn't mind the flick. Put it this way - it was worth a rental. If for nothing else because of Eva Green. She is just absolutely gorgeous! So for today's Horror Whores I'm going with Green's love scene with Johnny Depp's 'Barnabas Collins.' Glad to see I'm not...
