Comics: North 40

"Somewhere in Midwestern America was a place called Conover County. When the old book was opened, and the runes therein used in haste and ignorance, a place of farms, simple folk, and small-town dreams became a den of monsters and nightmare. NORTH 40 is the story of those who survived and came to confront an even greater evil on the horizon – one that wouldn't just consume their flesh, but their souls as well.

Friday Fun: Kill the Penguin

It's Friday. It's been a long week, you're sick of your coworkers, you're sick of your work, and you're done. What better way to release the week's tension by whacking the crap out of penguin with a giant spiky bat while dressed as a Yeti?

This is an oldie but a goodie that I just rediscovered again after a few years of forgetting about it. Have a good weekend!

Lost "Nightbreed" Footage is Just out of Reach

It's long been known that Clive Barker was ham stringed by his studio when helming the big screen adaptation of his story "Night Breed." Forced to cut nearly 25 minutes of footage from the final release, there has been much demand in the world of fandom for a director's cut.

The Creepshow - Run for Your Life

I've been a closet punk for many years. As of late I've found myself drawn towards the 'psychobilly' or 'hellbilly' sound. I mention both but near as I can tell, they're the same thing. Regardless, with revved up rockabilly rhythm mixed in with token horror movie references, I dig it. As a long time bass player, what's not to love about the use of a coffin shaped upright bass?

New Theatrical Trailer for Shane Acker's "9"

If you've been to the movies any time in the last two months, you've most likely seen the trailer for the upcoming animated feature "9".
