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...

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,...

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,...
