Apocalypse Mixtape IX: You Better Watch Out

Even as the four horsemen draw near and we shift from a money-based economy to one founded on gladiator-style combat for the pleasure of Tina Turner, trying to stop the holiday season is like trying to stop Black Friday shoppers at a Long Island Wal-Mart. If you've still got some last-minute shopping to do for a little one, may we suggest you give them a gift that's both educational and terrifying, Baby's First Mythos. The alphabet, numbers and the elder gods, all in one book?

Comics Creepshow 20: Crossed

I have a present for all of you horror fans. His name is Garth Ennis, and if you have never heard of him, thank me, after you have spent your Christmas/Hanukah/Kwanza money on his newest book, CROSSED, or any of the shelve filling collection of comic books he has written. It is simple- if you are a horror fan, it is a good chance you enjoy looking at disturbing imagery. Ennis is the master of scripting scenes with disturbing imagery in them.

Opposing Views on Day Remake

PETE 8/10

Before watching ‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’ , I though that on a scale of 1-10, it was going to be a 5. That would match up with the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, wouldn’t it? Thankfully, I was wrong. It just goes to show that having low expectations is always a good strategy - if anything, you’re just pleasantly surprised.

New Years Day/Steve Niles Contest!

In recent weeks, FearNET online has begun streaming episodes of NBC's "Fear Itself" series that aired last summer. Continuing with the rollout, starting December 18th, FearNET will start streaming the episode "New Years Day", which was written by Comic legend Steve Niles.

Between a Rock and a Hardwicke

If you're like me, you've not only caught TWILIGHT fever, but also TWILIGHT chills, TWILIGHT throat polyps and TWILIGHT cholera. Yep, I'm dying of TWILIGHT-AIDS and thank God there's no cure! Being such a huge fan, when I'm not writing TWILIGHT hardcore gay slash fan-fic, I'm following every little bit of TWILIGHT news...wait...no, I can't do this. I tried, and I can't.

Comics Creepshow 19: Laurie Strode

I have a new slogan that may entice you into reading comics- “Comics: Bringing you back to the worlds you love, without having to re-envision shit!” Within the past ten years, screenwriters, television writers and novelists have begun to realize that the comic book medium is the ideal place to continue telling their stories, when they have been unable to do so in their original medium. The ‘Star Wars’ saga, The ‘X-files’ and Stephen King’s Dark Tower epic are all examples of properties, whose worlds have expanded once they have made the transition over to comics.

BGH Book Club: The Surgeon

When one lists the names of the “great” horror writers, Tess Gerritsen isn’t usually mentioned. However, after reading The Surgeon, I believe her name should be connected to the genre. I was drawn to Gerritsen’s book by the cover - black and red blotches of color outline the silhouette of a woman - a woman who, as the reader will learn, is prey for the very vicious serial killer that gives the novel its name.

Comics Creepshow 18: Jonah Hex V2

In the Horror Headlines section of this site, there has been a lot of talk about a big screen adaptation of JONAH HEX. This movie may or may not get made and it may or may not star Josh Brolin. It is in that phase of limbo, where the possibility is very high that it might get scrapped altogether. But why make a film of the JONAH HEX comic to begin with, and why is HEX worthy of discussion on a horror site?

Musicals That Don't Star Zac Efron

BGH TRIPLE FEATURE:

With this triple feature, we take a look at two new “horrmusicals” (I just invented that term—patent pending!) and one bizarre classic that has finally been released…so get those jazz hands ready! And a one, a two, a one two three go...
