Waxwork re-issues Ennio Morricone's score for Carpenter's The Thing on 2/24

John Carpenter's remake of THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD (aka THE THING) has a fun distinction within the world of John Carpenter flicks as it is one of the few times Carpenter didn't score the film himself. Makes sense. When you've got legendary composer Ennico Morricone willing to score your motion picture, you take that opportunity. Plus, less work for you, right?...

Face-Off: The Car vs. Christine

The goofball family film MONSTER TRUCKS, which is about trucks being powered by monstrous creatures, isn't really Arrow in the Head material and isn't exactly setting the box office on fire, but its release is responsible for inspiring this week's Face-Off, as it got me thinking about horror movies in which vehicles are powered by otherworldly forces.
