Face-Off: Raw Meat vs. Horror Express

One of my greatest cinematic obsessions outside of the horror genre is the James Bond franchise, so it is with great anticipation that I'm looking forward to this Friday's release of the latest entry in the series, SPECTRE.

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.
