R.I.P.: The Blob producer Jack H. Harris has passed away

The man responsible for bringing one of my favorite sci-fi horror creatures to the screen has passed away. That man was producer Jack H. Harris, who died at his home yesterday at the age of 98. The creature is The Blob, that gelatinous man-eater that creeps and leaps and glides and slides. A World War II veteran who had been in show business since he was just 7 years old, starting...

"Statistically you are more likely to die in a hospital than anywhere else." It is official. THE VOID just became the second entry on my top "must-see" upcoming horror flicks. Second to only STEPHEN KING'S IT. Wow. I mean we have seen TWO great trailers at this point, and a bevy of pimp posters, but I have to say this new trailer is a new kind of monster. Creepy, enigmatic...

Samuel L. Jackson takes on The Blob for director Simon West

A remake of Irvin S. Yeaworth Jr's 1958 sci-fi horror classic THE BLOB has been in development for years. At one time, THE CONJURING writers Chad and Carey Hayes were scripting a more comedic take on the concept, and at another point Rob Zombie was (briefly) attached to write and direct, famously saying that his version of the story would not feature "a big red blobby thing". ...

Top 10 Scariest Extraterrestrials!

So, how many of you have spotted the unassuming ETA of EXTRATERRESTRIAL coming down the pike? We really don't blame you if not, the low-key flick has aptly remained hidden in plain sight, just as all those real life aliens have purported to be here on Earth (do you believe?)

The Blob Blu-ray coming this October from Twilight Time

The good news is, Chuck Russell's THE BLOB is finally getting its long-awaited Blu-ray release this October! The bad news is, as this is a limited edition from Twilight Time, the number of available copies is small: 5,000. Not bad considering their output is usually 3,000, but still tightens your chances of scoring one. The blu-ray's release date is October 14th; you'll be able to...

However, most set that notion aside and agreed that the remake was the one they'd rather watch. Today, it seems we are comparing another May/December romance of flicks in all their gooey glory! Yes, it's time...
