Advance Look: His Name Was Jason

Friday the 13th Part IV is an immoral and reprehensible piece of trash.

- Roger Ebert


"His Name Was Jason" is an independent documentary on the "Friday the 13th" series, about to be released by Anchor Bay Entertainment. It's the brainchild of one Anthony Masi, whom horror fans may know as the man behind the documentary "Halloween: 25 Years of Terror" from a few years back. Based on his success with that material, he was recruited to immortalize Jason in the same way he had Michael Myers.

42nd Street Forever: Volume 4

Some people look forward to Christmas, some people their birthday. Me? Well I look forward to whenever Synapse releases another volume of their incredibly exhaustive and excruciatingly entertaining 42ND STREET FOREVER series. I make myself a honey-baked ham, pop open some Manischewitz and kick back, enjoying every amazingly fun b-movie trailers these guys have found.

DVD Releases for 1/27/09

Well folks, it's been awhile, but finally it's time for the return of the weekly DVD column! I'll be honest with you; I'm just lazy! We're back though and ready to rock through the aisles of new releases!


Comics Creepshow 25: Impaler

This weekend ‘Underworld: Rise of The Lycans’ comes out. If you are like me, the idea of vampires involved in massive sword slashing battles sets off sparks in your imagination, but based on the quality of the first two ‘Underworld’ films, ‘Lycans’ will most likely leave you wishing you had never sunk your teeth into the movie, in the first place. There is an alternative, however, if you are looking for a nice mesh of sword fighting and gruesome vampire action- William Harms’ IMPALER, from Top Cow Productions, Inc.

It's time once again folks!

Time for what?

Time for the return of Jason Voorhees in more ways than one!

Comics Creepshow 24: Lock & Key Head Game

The creative team behind the Comics Creepshow winner for BEST HORROR COMIC OF 2008 has returned, turning their LOCKE & KEY story into a franchise. Making LOCKE & KEY into an ongoing series of mini-series was a logical decision, considering that the original mini-series was both a critical and financial success and that the last issue left off on a tremendous cliffhanger. I am happy to say, that writer Joe Hill and artist Gabriel Rodriguez have kept the overall story going strong, without having to back track at all.

Comics Creepshow 23: Asylum Press


When searching through reviews online for images to use in this week’s column, that adjective stood out. Demented is the perfect word to describe the many comics put out by Asylum Press. And, there are many comics brandishing the Asylum Press banner, which is intriguing, considering that Asylum is an independent publisher, and that from the books I have read, the majority of their titles are written by only two men- Frank Forte and Robert Steven Rhine.

Comics Creepshow 22: City of Dust #3

Happy New You to all you horror comics fans! Though 2008 saw the birth of Comics Creepshow, I can’t say that the year was filled with ground-breaking horror comics. All the evidence needed to back that statement up can be found in last week’s column. Out of the hundreds of comics featuring vampires, zombies, serial killers, or any other type of terror-causing creature, there were only 5 that I considered extremely high in quality, and one of them (THE WALKING DEAD) is a book that has been around for five years.

Best and Worst Horror Films of 2008

This is the BGH Crew's Top and Bottom 5 picks for 2008. The criteria was very loose, so you may see some films on here that are iffy as horror movies, and you may see some that only questionably were 2008 releases. We like to keep things interesting around here though, so it was pretty much anything goes. Feel free to argue our picks or give your own in the comments.
