Into the BLOOD RED SKY

One of the upcoming productions that has me sorta excited is called BLOOD RED SKY. It’s a German film that could honestly have been called VAMPIRES ON A PLANE. It looks good, though. No, scratch that. It looks *really* good. Alas it’s going straight to livestreaming courtesy of Netflix, so I’m not sure when I’ll…

INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE Series Headed to AMC (Where It Will Hopefully Tank)

That’s AMC the television channel, not AMC the theater chain.

The earth turned to putty, the proud warriors of the Blue Lotus…

Mego Hammer Dracula

There’s this certain Walmart I’m no longer allowed to patronize. Generally speaking, the Walmart franchise is not known for its geek fare.
