Lance Henriksen talks Near Dark & Bishop knife trick

Like many of you guys out there one of my absolute top genre movie actors is the amazing Lance Henriksen. The man has been in more classic flicks than perhaps Jeffrey Combs and Tony Todd combined! Maybe not Kane Hodder and Robert Englund, but you get the point. Recently, Henriksen sat down with AV Club for an epic interview on most of his classic roles, including my personal...

Where in the Horror are they Now? Jenette Goldstein!

JENETTE GOLDSTEIN THEN : ALIEN: COVENANT is only a couple weeks away and I couldn’t be more excited. Ever since my first exposure to the franchise I was utterly blown away by the Xenomorph and its acidic blood and slick design. From its first introduction in ALIEN (1978) to the fantastic follow-up ALIENS (1986), the series hit some impressive heights. While the...

Where in the Horror are they Now? Bill Paxton!

BILL PAXTON THEN: Very few mainstream character actors have as much horror cred as the great Bill Paxton. Early on in his career, he did a number of cool flicks that proved the guy would be up for pretty much anything. In 1975 he began his wild and crazy career in the Jonathan Demme directed crime flick CRAZY MAMA with Cloris Leachman. He was a soldier in the...

Face-Off: Caleb & Mae/Near Dark Vs. Michael & Star/Lost Boys

Robotic war was waged with our last Face-Off . Everyone all agreed that RoboCop 2 (AKA Robo Cain) would most certainly defeat ED-209 and his stairs-impaired feet. Now, I'm kind of wondering what RoboCop 2 would do to the RoboCop remake. Oh, well, another time. For today's Face-Off, we are carrying over some of the lovey-dovey stench from this past Valentine's Day weekend by pitting two...
