Non-Halloween for a Fun Halloween
This is it, kiddies. Halloween is almost over — for some it already is. And according to my social media feelers, it looks like this year was hit or miss for Halloween spirit. It happens. Just blame the election. So before we close the season out with a super-duper spooky article tomorrow, let’s get generic for a… Read More ›
Night of the Living Dead Volume 1: Sins of the Father
It says right on the back of this graphic novel that it is a “retelling” of the original film. So much has been done and remade and reused from this film that nothing really seems like a great offense at this point, so that statement does nothing to add or takeaway from the book. The… Read More ›
Halloween Décor: Come on in!
Aside from gorging on candy corn and pumpkin beer while watching Halloween and/or Trick ‘r Treat, there is no better way to get in the festive mood than by decorating your house, apartment, room, car, office, whatever.

‘Deathgasm’ and Me
When I was in seventh grade, circa 1990/1991, I was just a dude with long, scraggly hair, black stonewashed jeans, wire-framed glasses often held together by paperclips, Bart Simpson “Eat My Shorts” t-shirts and a love of what I referred to as metal. In retrospect, it’s easy to see why that year was not that… Read More ›
First Impressions: ‘Fear the Walking Dead’
We watched the Fear the Walking Dead premiere last night and — truth be told — it was exactly what I thought it would be. Maybe even a little better considering the mixed reactions the show’s been getting. For those complaining that there wasn’t enough “action,” I beg to differ. It was book-ended with your zombie… Read More ›

Here we go. Warning — POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD… Read More ›
Review: Warm Bodies (2013)
Jonathan (All the Boys Love Mandy Lane) Levine’s Warm Bodies is based on a Young Adult novel. Who the hell cares? If you write this flick off as tweeny bopper Twilight fare, you will be missing out on one hell of a movie. This is not a send up. This is not some watered-down zombie… Read More ›
