It's the Booze Talkin', We want to see Romero return to political horror!

One of my earliest memories of falling in love with horror was a certain iconic zombie flick. It was a day such as this, a gloomy sort of Los Angeles morning, and the shades were all shut on the windows to keep the place especially dark. On a crappy TV was the classic zombie thriller NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. Some of you may remember the old creature features that would run on...

Face-Off: Dawn of the Dead 2004 vs. Slither

This weekend THE BELKO EXPERIMENT is coming to theatres, and since that film is the result of a collaboration between two familiar names in the genre, screenwriter James Gunn and director Greg McLean, that combo gave some options to choose from for this week's Face-Off. Since I have already put McLean's WOLF CREEK and WOLF CREEK 2 against each other (you can read that Face-Off HERE ), the...

Documentary series Untold Horror will cover films that didn't get made

My favorite director among the "masters of horror" is George A. Romero, and while I cherish the movies he has made, I'm also fascinated by the stories of the movies he couldn't get made. Projects like adaptations of Stephen King's The Stand and Pet Sematary , the musical DIAMOND DEAD, the zombie movies he still wants to make right now, etc. He spent the seven...

Original Creepshow comic gets a reprinting on May 9th

This is great news for me. As you might know, I reported on the lost CREEPSHOW 2 story, Pinfall, getting its comic adaptation a few weeks ago . And needless to say I am a huge CREEPSHOW fan. I just peeped the making-of doc JUST DESSERTS too. Good times. As you can imagine, I am over-joyed to hear the original CREEPSHOW comic, which was released (as a very limited edition)...

The Lost Creepshow 2 story Pinfall: Take a look inside the comic adaptation

As some of you might know, unlike the first film, CREEPSHOW 2 only contains only three stories (Old Chief Wooden Head, The Raft, and The Hitchhiker) instead of the five tales contained within the original CREEPSHOW flick. Story goes that there were two more stories set to appear in the film, but they were scrapped due to budgetary reasons. The other two lost stories were...

R.I.P.: Night of the Living Dead sheriff George Kosana has passed away

I have mentioned several times that George A. Romero's 1968 classic NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD is one of my all-time favorite films and likely the movie I have watched more than any other. It's cinematic comfort to me, something I can put on and watch at any time. However, there can be a sad edge to these viewings at times. The further we get away from its initial release, the more...

The score is available to purchase on Bandcamp for $10, but if...

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...

Lakeshore Records to release a new score for Night of the Living Dead

When George A. Romero was putting together his 1968 classic NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, the score he laid over the film was assembled from pre-existing library tracks. Although it wasn't composed specifically for the movie, that music did give NIGHT an iconic sound, and the film took ownership of the music in a way. Tracks featured in NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD show up in other movies,...

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...

Judith O'Dea returns in Night of the Living Dead: Genesis trailer

As most horror fans know, George A. Romero's 1968 classic NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD is, due to the simple oversight of not including a copyright notice on the film, in the public domain. Anyone can do whatever they want with it, including remake and/or sequelize it, and many independent filmmakers have taken advantage of that. Usually I am very against anyone daring to touch NIGHT,...
