Sundance Screws Zombie Marks

The Sundance Film festival is screwing itself, too, with their decision to not hold the event this year, to just “go virtual”. Their desire to protect prospective audience members from the Omicrona is admirable, but in a world where people have largely returned to once again gathering in public, including going to the movies, is…

Freddy and Michael Lived – er, Make That ‘Killed’ – in the Same House!

Courtesy of HORRORS HALLOWED GROUNDS host Sean Clark, and indirectly to us by way of Bloody Disgusting, comes this scoop. And it’s a fargin’ huge scoop for us Slasher-lovin’ Monsterkidz.
