The Avengers Of Monsters Movies Is Coming With Monster X

By:  Nick Venable Movie monsters have been costarring in films for around seventy years now, whether in horror movies (House of Frankenstein), comedies (Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein) or CGI spectacles (Stephen Sommers’ Val Helsing). It’s been nine years since the latter graced cinemas, so it was only a matter of time before the gang got back together. The Hollywood Reporter reports Benderspink, the production company behind the upcoming The Amazing Burt Wonderstone, has optioned a screenplay for Monster X, based on an original idea by []

Evil Dead Director Says Sequel Will Be Completely Different

By:  Eric Eisenberg The Evil Dead franchise has always had an interesting approach to sequels. Unlike Sam Raimi’s original, which was made as a pure-blooded horror film,Evil Dead II introduced comedy and Three Stooges-esque gags into the mix, while Army of Darkness totally flipped the script and transported the story from a cabin in the woods to medieval times. So it’s only fitting that the sequel to the upcoming remake would do the same thing. Having screened the movie last night at the opening of the South By []

Sunday Night TV (10 Mar 2013)

With all that, it truly was a powerful episode that showed just who Cora was and delivered an unexpected twist to the story that is Rumpelstiltskin.  I loved the []
