A French sculptor by the name of Cyril Roquelaine (and you check out more of their amazing work HERE)  came across our site and thought we’d like to see one of their amazing creations. It’s none other than the “Norris monster” from one of our favorite films, THE THING!

Artist Spotlight: Ashley Johnson from Factory Of Terror!

When I started working at Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, Rhode Island I knew I would be working with people who shared a similar interest of mine, the love of animals. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that I would also be working with so many people who also shared my love of horror and science fiction films! This blog is about one of them.

No Apocalypse on the Horizon for Legendary Filmmaker, George A. Romero

The Daves would like to welcome Brandon Engel to our website with his wonderful entry on George Romero!

In the periphery of mainstream filmmaking, George Romero has been churning out controversial movies for nearly 50 years, starting with his pioneering film, Night of the Living Dead, in 1968.

And even though it was shot in black and white and on a meager budget, Night knocked the socks off the viewing public. It received mixed reviews (with notable critics like Roger Ebert publicly expressing their distaste for the film, however effective it was) and it wound up essentially establishing the framework for the zombie film as we know it today. The film vividly depicted cannibalistic zombie feasts, and not only did Romero have the audacity to have his lead character played by a black actor (Duane Jones), but he also had the nerve to kill him off in the film’s screen. Not bad for a guy who launched his show-biz career on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.

POKER NIGHT – A Movie Worth The Gamble?

poker-night-horror-movie-poster

More often than not, movies that prominently feature gambling of any kind center on the drama associated with a particular game or locale. Just off the top of my head, I can rattle off Casino, The Gambler, and Rounders as notable examples—and fantastic films, by the way. But in the upcoming movie Poker Night, the card game is used quite differently. Not only that, but it’s at the center of what looks to be one hell of a creepy (albeit familiar) plot.

Book Review: You Won’t Believe Your Eyes

There are so many movie guides out there today that it is really difficult at times to choose which ones we should buy. They range in quality from very good (like Bill Warren’s “Keep Watching The Skies“) to dreadful (like Rob Craig’s “It Came From 1957“) but at least one thing can be said, movies from the 1950’s are getting more coverage than ever. When it comes to movies, my favorites all came from the 1950’s. No other time period has been more prolific when it comes to monster and science fictions films. Though many of these films are now considered classics, there were many stinkers as well. At least most of these stinkers have their own charm and are still fun to watch even today. The book I am reviewing today, “You Won’t Believe Your Eyes: A  Front Row Look at the Sci-Fi/Horror Films of the 1950s“, by Mark Thomas McGee and R.J. Robertson, covers these movies in a way not really seen before, which is why I highly recommend it.
