Micro-budget filmmaker and lover of all things horror.

After weeks of waiting, we’ve finally gotten the first trailer for the all-new sequel to Prometheus, Alien: Covenant. And just in time for Christmas. The trailer makes the film look especially promising, as it seems to lose a lot of its Prometheus connections and focuses more on the outright horror of Alien. And I like that. It’s about time we get to see some of the grotesque body horror and darkness the original film is known for, and I think it’ll be just the thing to make up for Prometheus. We also get to see some more recognizable Xenomorph creatures,…

Warner Bros.’ DC Cinematic Universe is still in its early stages, and thus far has suffered from a lack of critical praise, as evident in any comment section on the internet. WB aims to change this with their newest upcoming installments, Wonder Woman and Justice League. The company has already appointed Geoff Johns as president of DC Entertainment, and Zack Snyder will be taking a break from DC after the release of Justice League. Charles Roven, another one of DC’s main producers, recently spoke with THR about how Wonder Woman and Justice League will differ from past projects. “Wonder Woman…

People like to hate remakes. And sometimes I can be one of those people. Other times, however? I absolutely love remakes. There’s David Cronenberg’s The Fly, John Carpenter’s The Thing, and an underrated favorite of mine, The Blob. Unfortunately, it seems that most filmmakers don’t understand how to properly remake a film. It’s not about taking the biggest and most profitable name and making a half-hearted rehash because “the original can’t be beat.” It’s about taking a fantastic concept, one that never met its full potential, and making sure it does the next time around. And it finally seems like…

Although most audiences might not have been familiar with the Suicide Squad until the film adaptation was announced, they have been a part of DC Comics since as early as 1959. With such a lengthy history, it’s not at all shocking that a video game would someday be put into production. Unfortunately the game, which became Suicide Squad: Special Ops, was rather badly made and only allowed players to utilize up to three characters. That’s why, when it was rumored we would be getting a much more fleshed-out game, fans became incredibly excited. However, according to Kotaku, the game was…

Most people recognize Batman as one of the darker aspects of the DC Comics Universe, and perhaps comics or entertainment in general. And so it’s natural for audiences not to connect Batman or related shows like Gotham to a sitcom such as Friends. One person, however, did. And with Giuls Shofer’s new fan video, it makes you wonder why someone hadn’t thought of it sooner. The video places the world of Gotham into a place of levity and laughter, not unlike the actual show Friends, and I can’t help but wish there was an actual series with this kind of…

While we’ll no doubt have an abundance of Baby Groot merchandise when Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters, it’s NECA’s life-sized figure of the alien tree that really stands out. While the figurine pays plenty of attention to detail, there’s still something a little eerie about the first look at their new toy. With a price as cheap as $34.99, it’s no doubt a plus for fans on a budget for getting their merchandise; but just look at that smile. There’s a word for a face like that, and it is sinister. Check it out below: Guardians…

Vincent D’Onofrio’s portrayal of the villainous kingpin Wilson Fisk has become one of the most beloved across the Marvel Cinematic Universe. His presence is absolutely phenomenal whenever he’s onscreen, and fans can’t seem to get enough. That’s why he’s been asked by one fan on Twitter whether or not he’ll be starring on the Defenders miniseries – an upcoming Netflix crossover set to feature Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. Unfortunately the actor replied with a big fat “no chance” that he’ll be appearing. Check out the exchange below: https://twitter.com/vincentdonofrio/status/810342516474134528 And despite the comics having introduced Wilson Fisk…
