Following the season 1 finale of American Gods, the American Godcast team is back behind the mics to discuss all of the recent otherworldly events of the STARZ series, and you can listen to their latest takes on the show right now.
As a first time filmmaker, it takes a lot of courage to not follow the trends. The early ‘80s were flooded with slashers, and for good reason; they were, for the most part, instant ATMs to the studios. Thank God then (or Satan, your florist, a masseuse, whatever floats your boat) for Frank LaLoggia, a New Yorker in his mid-20s who decided to go epic out of the gate with Fear No Evil (1981), a parable on Good Versus Evil, capital letters, with a strong Catholic bent filtered through Carrie’s prom dress.
Looking for an air-conditioned alternative to mowing your grass this summer? Scream Factory has you covered with their Collector's Edition Blu-ray release of the 1992 Stephen King short story adaptation, The Lawnmower Man, and we've been provided with three copies to give away to lucky Daily Dead readers.
It's been more than 40 years since the release of Jaws, and people are still afraid to go in the water. That's the undeniable quality of the film, that its effect on generations of film fans is still, firstly, fear of what lurks in the water. Since its release, numerous films have tried to emulate the qualities that so richly personify the film, but very few have come close.
Fright Rags has unleashed their latest Midnight Madness shirt design with their new RoboCop apparel, available for only 24 hours.
Steve Zahn's character "Bad Ape" from War for the Planet of the Apes is depicted in a new Pop! vinyl figure from Funko, and we also have trailers and details for Bonejangles and Capps Crossing in today's Horror Highlights.
From the Black Lodge to the tiny town of Hawkins, Funko is paying tribute to a wide variety of characters with their new wave of San Diego Comic-Con exclusives that include Agent Cooper and Laura Palmer from Twin Peaks, T-Dog from The Walking Dead, and Mr. Clarke and a bloodied Steve from Stranger Things.
Later tonight at the 2017 Los Angeles Film Festival, co-writer/director Norbert Keil will be able to celebrate the long journey to completion for his latest project, Replace, as the genre-bending horror film is set for its world premiere as part of the fest’s Nightfall programming.
Yesterday, Daily Dead sat down with Keil, as well as with Replace co-stars Rebecca Forsythe and genre legend Barbara Crampton, to discuss their wholly unique collaboration that left this writer continually guessing until the very end.
If the kid characters from Stranger Things knew that they were being depicted as action figures, they would probably think it was the coolest thing ever. It's rather fitting, then, that Funko is paying tribute to Mike, Lucas, Will, Dustin, Eleven, and even the Demogorgon with their new Stranger Things action figures that will be released this August, in plenty of time before the Halloween release of season 2 on Netflix.
Premiering on Monday, June 19th as part of the 2017 Los Angeles Film Festival lineup is director Julius Ramsay’s intense and masterfully constructed thriller, Midnighters, which was penned by Julius’ brother, Alston Ramsay.
Ahmanet has awakened from her tomb to wreak havoc on the big screen, and with Tom Cruise recently resurrecting The Mummy to kick off Universal's new interconnected Dark Universe of their classic monsters, we thought it was the perfect time to discuss the actor's previous work in the horror genre, his new take on The Mummy, our hopes for the Dark Universe, and our favorite Universal Monster movies, all in the newest episode of the Corpse Club podcast.
While I’m never going to consider it a “good” movie, I’m strangely glad that director Gus Van Sant’s shot-for-shot 1998 remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho exists. It only serves to make the original movie that much better (as though such a thing was possible) by demonstrating all the things Hitchcock does so perfectly that the remake gets perfectly wrong. Think of it as a $20 million experimental film; now that is has been tried and failed, we know that the experiment doesn’t need repeating. That alone has to be worth something.
They didn't mean to hit him with their car, but a young couple discover that they might be lucky that they did in the new trailer for Midnighters.
What events led up to the most brutal battles yet between humans and their simian counterparts? David F. Walker (co-writer of Tarzan on the Planet of the Apes) will answer that question in BOOM! Studios' comic book series prequel to War of the Planet of the Apes, coming out this July just before the new film hits theaters from 20th Century Fox. For our latest Q&A feature, we had the chance to discuss the new four-issue series with Walker, as well as his Day of the Dead and Escape from New York dream projects.
