Monster Monday: Blink

Monster Monday: Blink

Happy Monster Monday, fiends! Today’s monster comes from “Blink,” one of my favorite episodes of Doctor Who. While the show is generally more oriented toward sci-fi (and ripping out my heart and stomping on it), Doctor Who also does a damn fine job when it comes to horror episodes. “Blink” introduces us to the Weeping Angels, … Continue reading Monster Monday: Blink

Celebrating Halloween III: Season of the Witch

Celebrating Halloween III: Season of the Witch

Happy anniversary to one of my favorite horror movies! Halloween III: Season of the Witch was released on this date in 1982. Written and directed by Tommy Lee Wallace, this is the only movie in the franchise that does not feature Michael Myers (though he does make a cameo appearance — we briefly see Halloween … Continue reading Celebrating Halloween III: Season of the Witch

Monster Monday: Night of the Creeps

Monster Monday: Night of the Creeps

Happy Monster Monday, fiends! Today's monster comes from one of my favorite movies: Night of the Creeps, a fantastic homage to '50s B-movies directed by Fred Dekker and starring my man Tom Atkins as Detective Ray Cameron. This is my favorite role of his, which is saying a lot. I don't think I've written much … Continue reading Monster Monday: Night of the Creeps

WTF Films: The Visitor

WTF Films: The Visitor

Y'all. Y'ALL. I need to tell you about the movie I just watched. I'm not going to lie, I was pretty bored through parts of it, but I begged for forgiveness from the film gods after seeing the absolutely bonkers last ten minutes. (See also: Pieces.) The film is The Visitor, and it is the inaugural … Continue reading WTF Films: The Visitor

Monster Monday: They Live

Monster Monday: They Live

Happy Monster Monday, fiends! Today's monster comes from John Carpenter's classic anti-establishment sci-fi-action-horror-comedy They Live. Featuring one of the most famous fight scenes and one of the most hilariously ludicrous tough guy lines in film history, They Live is a must-see. I normally only include monster photos on Monster Monday, but since today is a … Continue reading Monster Monday: They Live

Monster Monday: Fiend Without a Face

Monster Monday: Fiend Without a Face

Happy Monster Monday! I'm cheating a bit today — today's monster is technically invisible. I think you'll forgive me, though, when you hear about the movie. In 1958's Fiend Without a Face, invisible thought monsters suck out people's brains and spinal cords and then fly around wreaking havoc on an American military base. Invisible thought monsters. … Continue reading Monster Monday: Fiend Without a Face

Blessed be the Ripleys, Jonesies, and Newts of the world, for today is Alien Day. If you are not yet devout when it comes to holidays based on pop culture, let me explain. In the film Alien, the crew of the spacecraft Nostromo investigates a mysterious signal from a planetoid, where they encounter an alien creature … Continue reading LV-426
