I was recently thinking about the cult classic I Married a Monster From Outer Space and wondering why it seldom comes up when folks are talking about monster movies from the 50′s.
As a kid, I Married a Monster From Outer Space was one of my many favorites. It still holds up pretty well.
Maybe I Married a Monster From Outer Space just needs more people talking about it. So to that end… here’s the original trailer!
Gregory Myers at ListVerse presents 10 Bone-Chilling Urban Legends.
You won’t find an escaped con with a hook for a hand, but there are more than a few scary stories. My favorite of the urban legends presented is Chilling Discovery.
So lights on, or lights off?
“This is an extinction-scale event. The president is dead.”
Those are the first two sentences you hear in the trailer to Z Nation which premieres in September on the SyFy Channel.
While it’s true that I’m skeptical of anything brought to us from the folks behind Sharknado, the trailer does look promising. Let me warn you before you watch the Z Nation trailer below, there is typical zombie movie gore. So give the trailer a view and let me know your thoughts.
As a kid the wolf man was always my favorite monster. This is interesting because werewolf movies weren’t [and aren't] my favorite monster movies. Perhaps it was because the wolf man was a victim and easier to relate to than an undead vampire, a monster made of corpses or a fishman.
Ah, but I digress…
So the wolf man was always my favorite monster. The Curse of the Werewolf was [and remains] my favorite werewolf movie. I agree with everything John Landis has to say about The Curse of the Werewolf and would only add that the design of the wolf man for Curse of the Werewolf has never been topped.
Recently Vic’s Movie Den posted On the Set – Director George Romero. The piece contains a bunch of behind the scenes photos and video of, you guessed it, George Romero (and others) on the set of Romero’s movies. It’s well worth a look for all Romero, and zombie fans.
Did you dig the Walking Dead Season 5 Trailer that was shown at Comic Con?
Yeah, me too!
I like this poster for Horns.
Horns starring Daniel Radcliffe will premiere on October 31, 2014, and is based on the fan-favorite novel by Joe Hill.
If you’d like to see a bigger version of the poster, you can, thanks to ComingSoon.
When I saw this poster for Salem’s Lot it brought back a lot of memories. Released as a 3 hour television mini-series in 1979, Salem’s Lot was one of the last tv events that you had to be in front of the set when it aired if you wanted to see it. Remember, this was in the pre-VCR (anyone remember those) days.
I was excited about the mini-series since I’d read and enjoyed Stephen King’s novel Salem’s Lot. The mini-series was well done and lived up to expectations. I still can see that kid vampire floating outside a second story window asking to be let in… CREEPY!

The Zombie Apocalypse is coming.
What will it reveal about your true character? Will you become a leader, a follower, someone who takes advantage of the weak, or a zombie’s lunch?
As the sign says if you take the quiz Which Walking Dead Survivor Are You? there could be spoilers…
For the record… I got Rick.
It’s been a while since we did a quiz… so, let’s see how well we would survive the zombie apocalypse.
Let me rephrase that, Will You Survive the Zombie Apocalypse?
See, I’ve already taken the quiz and I’m going to easily survive. I’m hoping the best for you.
Really, I am.
