Writer Jay Basu tapped for Universal's classic monsters relaunch

To be honest, I lost a lot of interest in Universal's classic monsters relaunch when we learned that the films would be taken out of the horror genre . Who could blame me? These are the monster films we either grew up loving or inspired the films that we consider our favorites. To hear that Universal wants to take these iconic characters into a more action-oriented direction is...

It's the Booze Talkin': Universal Monsters going action? Wrong move!

It’s safe to assume nearly every fan of horror has, at the very least, a partial historical knowledge and admiration of the Universal Monsters. Even when I was young and filled with images of Michael Myers and Freddy Krueger, I still had a mad respect for FRANKENSTEIN, THE MUMMY, THE WOLF MAN and so many others. To this day, both DRACULA and THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN rank incredibly high...

Top 10 Horrific Man-Anmial Hybrids!

Dude, TUSK? What else is there to say other than...WTF?!? Personally speaking, even if I weren't a lifelong Kevin Smith fan - in particular his sinister newfound collaborations with the great Michael Parks - the sheer insanity of the premise alone makes TUSK a must-see. I mean, Michael Parks going to painstaking lengths to morph Justin Long into a human Walrus? Holy F*ck! So, as the flick...

It's the Booze Talkin': RIP Universal Studios' House of Horrors!

On September 1st of this year, for the very last time I made way to experience one of my favorite places in Los Angeles. Universal Studios Hollywood is home to a number of great attractions, but there is one place where I could entertain in some good, old-fashioned, horror thrills. Ever since it opened to the public in 2007 (with a 2006 “soft” opening), the House of Horrors Walk Through...

Cool Horror Gear: Funko's Universal Monsters Pop! Series

I really dig what Funko brings to the table with their ultra-cool Pop! Vinyl series (still gotta get my hands on one of their SHARKNADO figures), and now the company will be bringing the legendary Universal Monsters to life in a new Pop! series that will have me shelling out even more cash...but they're so worth it! Dracula, Frankenstein, The Bride of Frankenstein, The Wolf...

That’s right, Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man, Creature From The Black Lagoon, The Invisible Man, Bride Of Frankenstein, and The Mummy are all in the very hands of Kurtzman and Morgan—some of their work includes...

It's the Booze Talkin': Do the Universal Monster flicks need to be remade?

This past weekend audiences clearly had little desire to put down their hard earned cash for the latest horror inspired action flick I, FRANKENSTEIN. Yes the reviews are dismal and even moviegoers didn’t seem all too enthralled with a man-made creation in Aaron Eckhart’s form. I personally missed the flick but according to our own Eric Walkuski’s review , I didn’t miss much. For an...

The Test of Time: The Wolf Man (1941)

We all have movies we love. Movies we respect without question because of either tradition, childhood love, or because they’ve always been classics. However, as time keeps ticking, do those classics still hold up? So…the point of this here column is whether of not a film stands the test of time. I’m not gonna question whether it’s still a good flick, but if the...
