What’s Next for Jason?

Having just celebrated another Friday the 13th, the minds of all the Horror faithful turned to matters cinematic, to a certain Mr. Jason Voorhees, who has been too long missing from the silver screen. The lawsuit that has kept the movie franchise trapped in the doldrums for the past several years is largely a matter…

Nightmare Coffee

I do not drink coffee. I do not drink coffee. I do not drink coffee. I do not *like* coffee! I’m just going to keep telling myself this, over and over, and hope it sticks. Otherwise I’m gonna go broke. Buying coffee. Which I don’t drink. Which I don’t like. See, the problem is, Dead…

DOCTOR STRANGE GOES STAR WARS

If I had any complaint about DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS, it would be that they didn’t take advantage of the opportunity afforded to show the fans more universes. They so easily could have. Quick, second-long glimpses of. Say, the X-Men universe (well, they did give us Professor X, so there’s that), the…

Danzig and Purging

Glenn Danzig is the Tommy Wiseau of the Horror genre. And he has his sights set on some werewolf action!

(DC has had greater success with its Horror properties.…

A Cthulhu-esque interdimensional creepazoid thingy obviously based on Cthulhu, immensely powerful, more or a less a god. No way, then, would Shuma-Gorath be *anybody’s* minion, no matter how powerful that person might be. In DOCTOR…

Zombie Dr. Strange

SPOILER WARNING for DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS. My favorite character in the film is Zombie Doctor Strange. Granted this is still *our* Doctor Strange I’m talking about. This isn’t the brain-munching version of the character from the Marvel Zombies universe. It’s our Doctor Strange temporarily possessing the rotting corpse of an alter…

(Spoiler-Free) Movie Review: DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS

Out of every Marvel movie that has come down the turnpike thus far, DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS is the one that most ought to appeal to the Horror faithful, and to the vampire marks in particular. It doesn’t have a vampire in it, but it does have a zombie. Oh, and there…
