The F*ckin Black Sheep: Robocop 2 (Video)

This week's F*ckin Black Sheep: Video Edition might be a slightly controversial one. ROBOCOP 2 is a movie that was much maligned upon its initial release but has certainly picked up a cult following in the ensuing years, thanks to home video and premium cable. (I seem to recall it being on HBO and/or Cinemax a lot in the early 90s.) Hell, some people will really go to the mat for...

RoboCop 2 & 3 coming to BluRay March 21st

The original ROBOCOP is one of my favorite flicks, so it took me a few years to dive into the film's sequels. I had heard good things about ROBOCOP 2 , and the combination of director Irvin Kershner ( EMPIRE STRIKES BACK ), Tom Noonan, and Frank Miller had me more than intrigued, so I finally peeped that flick - my God, years ago now - and was thoroughly impressed with the...

Face-Off: RoboCop vs. Starship Troopers

Last week we heard that screenwriters have been hired to pen a remake of Paul Verhoeven's 1997 film STARSHIP TROOPERS , and when that news is combined with the fact that a new Verhoeven film, the rape revenge thriller ELLE, is coming out this Friday, this seemed like the perfect week to have a STARSHIP TROOPERS Face-Off. But what movie to pair it with? How about Verhoeven's 1987 film ROBOCOP...

After cutting his teeth and sharpening his eye with cool, off-beat and...

Top 10 Most Terrifying High-Rises!

What the hell is about towering skyscrapers and sinister high-rises that serve as a perfect setting for a terrifying movie action? Is it the mere size of a gargantuan facade? The inability to escape such a self-contained unit? Is it the sheer acrophobia of it all? Well, whatever you attribute it to, Ben Wheatley's new film HIGH-RISE certainly doesn't disappoint in this regard. Which is why, as...

It's the Booze Talkin', Sometimes it's okay to remake a horror movie!

One of the must despised words in horror today is “remake.” It carries so much disdain that filmmakers and studios are constantly trying to call it anything else. It’s a reboot. It’s a reimagining. It’s a continuation. Whatever you want to call it, you are taking an existing property and placing new actors and, usually, a new script and making a...

Cool Horror Videos: Lee Hardcastle's video for "Tech Noir" by Gunship

Writer/director/animator Lee Hardcastle, who first came to the attention of many horror fans when his short "T is for Toilet" was chosen to be included in the first THE ABCs OF DEATH , regularly produces claymation shorts that are visually impressive, usually violent, and a lot of fun to watch. His latest work is no exception to that. Hardcastle has provided the music...

Where in the Horror are they Now? Ray Wise!

RAY WISE THEN: If the legendary Ray Wise had only appeared in the classic series Twin Peaks, he’d probably still be an icon. Of course, the actor has over 200 credits on IMDB, and is instantly recognizable. This fine gentleman can be utterly charming, and in mere seconds a raving lunatic, and pretty much everything in-between. He is a charismatic actor, one...

Original Vs. Remake: RoboCop

The commenters agreed with the House in regard to our last Original Vs. Remake which had the House on Sorority Row besting its poorly conceived, but hot-chick-loaded remake. I liked seeing that many had actually heard of the original because it really is a piece of well-made 80's horror. We are rolling out with a robotic theme for today's O vs. R, keeping up with the whole CHAPPIE...
