George A. Romero can't get his zombie noir made

After essentially rebooting his zombie apocalypse universe for the modern age with the 2007 found footage film DIARY OF THE DEAD , master of horror George A. Romero said he had plans for three spin-offs that would each follow different characters introduced in DIARY. We got one of those soon after, 2009's SURVIVAL OF THE DEAD , which followed a National Guard soldier played by...

Check out Johnathon Schaech in full zombie makeup for Day of the Dead!

We've already seen a little glimpse from the set of the  DAY OF THE DEAD remake-remake of Johnathon Schaech's zombie character, Max. But in what is presumably a paid promotion for Monster, he has just shared on Twitter an even closer look at the workings of his rotted make-up. It's a silly video, but it gives a pretty fun glimpse at the inner workings of the...

R.I.P.: Special effects artist John Vulich has passed away at age 55

In some ways, 2016 has been an absolutely awful year. It's been a year packed with a constant stream of the tragic, shocking losses of people in the entertainment industry, from movies to music and even the podcasting world. And it's not done taking away from us yet. Yesterday, the horror genre lost another one of its greats with the sudden passing of special effects artist...

It's the Booze Talkin', Has Hollywood forgotten about the horror greats?

When you think of your favorite horror movies, how often do guys like Carpenter, Hooper, Craven or Romero come up?  They are the names behind some of the most iconic horror films ever made. Recently - courtesy of the home video heroes Shout! Factory - I revisited John Carpenter’s THE THING and it was better than I remembered - and that's saying something...

Aussie Marcus Vanco joins the Day of the Dead remake

The DAY OF THE DEAD is well underway, shockingly, and one more has been added to its undead ranks. Aussie newcomer Marcus Vanco will join the cast as Baca Salazar, a soldier and survivor. He has few credits to his name, though he has appeared as a major character in the fantasy series The Shannara Chronicles and taken a role in Angelina Jolie's UNBROKEN. This new version of...

Check out the Day of the Dead remake's Johnathon Schaech all zombied up!

Recently we discovered that the DAY OF THE DEAD remake would feature Johnathon Schaech (PROM NIGHT, QUARANTINE) as a "half-human, half zombie" creature named Max. He's essentially a parallel to the original film's Bub. Well, now we have a first look at his rotting visage. The pictures below feature Schaech in makeup interacting with co-star...

Sophie Skelton and more join Johnathon Schaech in the Day of the Dead remake

Like it or not, George A. Romero's 1985 classic DAY OF THE DEAD is getting remade again. Yes, even though it was just remade in 2008 , a second remake is already in the works.  Hèctor Hernández Vicens will be at the helm of this third version of DAY OF THE DEAD, which has quite an odd plot description:  The post-apocalyptic tale follows a...

It's the booze talkin', Why are there so few sympathetic movie monsters?

Recently I happened upon a film I hadn’t sat down with in years. It was David Lynch's black and white masterpiece THE ELEPHANT MAN. While it may not be a horror film, it certainly has a bit of horror thanks to the way people treated the deformed John Merrick (John Hurt). Watching this incredible feature, I began to wonder why horror films generally treat their monsters as,...

Hector Hernandez Vicens to direct remake of Romero's Day of the Dead

I have a deep love for the films of George A. Romero in general, but especially for the original DEAD trilogy. NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, DAWN OF THE DEAD , and DAY OF THE DEAD each rank highly among my favorite movies of all time. For decades, DAY was seen as the black sheep of the bunch, receiving what I believed was an undue amount of negativity. Then the view of DAY seemed to...

Face-Off: Night of the Living Dead vs. Day of the Dead

Disagreements and the manipulations of outside elements splinter the ranks of the MCU superheroes in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, a film I am greatly anticipating. As I look forward to that movie, I've been thinking of other films that feature intense conflict among a group of characters, and the two that stand out to me most strongly as being Face-Off material are both parts of George A....
