In the living dead apocalypse, not every snowman has a "jolly, happy soul." Since the first panels premiered on Daily Dead during Comic-Con, we've been excited to showcase artist Jeff Fuller's living dead comic strip Zomics, which finds the macabre humor in the everyday horrors of a zombie apocalypse. We release a new installment of Zomics every Thursday, and we're excited to share another panel with Daily Dead readers today!
Besides releasing a number of our favorite classic horror films and the occasional cult oddity, the good folks at Scream Factory are also releasing a number of contemporary horror films and giving them a home on Blu-ray. Here’s a look at three of their recent efforts:
As someone who revels in the unabashed ridiculousness and wrongness of the Crank films, Mom and Dad was just the kind of anarchic cinema I was hoping to experience from writer/director Brian Taylor (who helmed the aforementioned Crank films alongside Mark Neveldine). A mix of survival/pandemic horror with a steady flow of pitch-black comedy coursing through its wonderfully nasty veins, Mom and Dad is just the right amount of wrong for this writer, and I enjoyed that Taylor—as expected—doesn’t pull any punches with his latest over-the-top endeavor.
Are you craving more King after reading Sleeping Beauties? If so, you'll want to circle "May 22nd" on your calendar, the date the next Stephen King book, The Outsider, hits bookshelves. While the synopsis was recently revealed, EW has now released the official cover art for the new novel that will bring readers to Flint City, where a horrifying crime has been committed, and the worst things might be those yet to come...
At the end of Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2, it may have seemed like Ash had ultimately prevailed in the battle against evil, but it doesn't take long for his chainsaw to get stained with blood again in the official trailer for the STARZ series' third season.
The halls of high school get hostile in the trailer for Paramount Network's new dark comedy anthology series Heathers, based on Michael Lehmann's 1980s movie of the same name.
Alicia Vikander brings Lara Croft back to the big screen in the latest trailer for the new Tomb Raider movie.
Forbidden love gets the supernatural attention of the vengeance-hungry dead in the official trailer for The Housemaid.
Set nine years after the battle at the Breach and one year prior to the events of the new movie Pacific Rim Uprising, the new comic book series Pacific Rim Aftermath kicked off this week with its first issue focused on Jake Pentecost, the son of war hero Stacker:
"Because you were home." Those four words have a chilling meaning for those who have seen Bryan Bertino's The Strangers, and with a new Strangers film coming out this March, Scream Factory pays tribute to where it all started with a Collector's Edition Blu-ray of The Strangers (featuring new HD masters of both the theatrical and unrated cuts) that is packed with bonus features, including new interviews with the cast and crew behind the creepy home invasion film:
Puppet Master: Curtain Call #3 by Shawn Gabborin and Daniel Jay Logan leads today's Comics Corner, and we also have a look at Part 3 of Dark Fang #3, Part 2 of Monsters Unleashed #10, Copperhead #18, Kill or Be Killed #15, Alien Bounty Hunter #3, and a look at Mr. Crypt's wacky vacation in Mr. Crypt #3.
Curse of the Witch's Doll introduces a new addition to the ranks of cinema's haunted dolls, and we have a look at the trailer for the new film in today's Horror Highlights, which also includes the key art for Zak Bagans' Demon House and home media release details for The Executioners.
When I first heard that filmmaker Brian Taylor (the Crank films, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance) was teaming up with Nicolas Cage and Selma Blair for a brand new pitch black comedy called Mom and Dad, in which parents are desperately trying to kill their offspring, I was immediately all in (and thankfully, it did not disappoint—but more on that later this week).
Raising a child in deep space can be difficult enough on its own, but throw in a horde of lethal Xenomorphs and you really have to be a great parent to keep your family safe. A mother and her 12-year-old son will have to fight to survive against one of the galaxy's most dangerous species in Aliens: Dust to Dust, a new comic book series premiering April 24th from Dark Horse:
It’s hard to believe, but another year of the Sundance Film Festival is nearly upon us. Kicking off this Thursday, Sundance will be running until January 28th in Park City, Utah, and Daily Dead will be on-hand to check out an assortment of genre-related offerings. That being said, there’s a handful of films that immediately caught this writer’s attention as soon as they were announced for Sundance 2018, and here’s a look at what has me excited from this year’s festival lineup:
