The holiday season is right around the corner, and that means some of our favorite manufacturers are ready to roll out their seasonal offerings, like FUNKO and their new Trading Places Pops. The CLASSIC [fight me] John Landis film starring Dan Aykroyd, Eddie Murphy, Don Ameche, Denholm Elliot, Ralph Bellamy, and JAMIE LEE CURTIS seems like a strange flick to get […]

A trailer was released today, featuring some familiar faces talking about some horror classics. Watch it below: Executive produced by award-winning […]
Eli Roth is gathering some of horror’s biggest names for a new series looking at the history of the genre and why we all like being scared so much. The series will debut in time for Halloween this year, with a debut date of October 14th, fittingly at midnight. The series will last six episodes […]

Fans of horror won’t be disappointed when October rolls around, with AMC Visionaries: Eli Roth’s History of Horror haunting the cable network […]
35 years ago today, Twilight Zone Movie opened in the theaters. The 1983 feature film was directed by Steven Spielberg, George Miller, Joe Dante, and John Landis, and took it’s cues from the 1959-1964 television series created by Rod Serling, The Twilight Zone. The film, in reality, is a retelling by four directors of 4 iconic stories from the original tv […]
Social media has been amazing for the level of connection audiences can have with creators. But also social media has been the worst possible thing for connecting certain audience members with creators. There isn’t a day that goes by where someone protected by the anonymity of facebook or twitter decides to rip something a part, […]
Director John Landis has delivered some huge successes in his long and storied career, such as The Kentucky Fried Movie, An American Werewolf in London, Animal House, Blues Brothers, Three Amigos, and Coming to America. He’s also produced a few duds, like Oscar, Blues Brothers 2000, and Max Landis. But when Landis gave an in […]
So this is pretty interesting. Deadline are reporting that An American Werewolf in London remake is on the way from Universal, which had been rumoured for some time. However, the personnel makes for intresting reading. The Walking Dead‘s David Alpert and Robert Kirkman are set to produce and Max Landis is set to write and direct it. […]
Max Landis' directorial debut has horror, swashbuckling, adventure, surreal, satirical and science fiction elements and stars Scott Bakula and Geena Davis. And that's just the tip of the iceberg it seems.
Rich and Brendon each have their own things to add in this "long awaited" return for "Ten Things."
The reason they don't like it is probably a good reason we would. NOW with minor UPDATE.
I don’t know the German TV show Durch Die Nacht, but I know that there’s an episode coming on July 7th that will feature Terry Gilliam and John Landis romping around in London followed by a camera crew. I have to see this. In these following preview clips you’ll see Landis demonstrating his skills as […]
I'd guess Max Landis must eat 4000 calories a day just to keep functioning.
John Landis‘ remarkable horror with a sense of humour, An American Werewolf in London was released 30 years ago today, on 21st August 1981. To celebrate, I thought I’d share a video of Vincent Price and Kim Hunter giving the first ever Academy Award for Makeup to Rick Baker for his work on the film. […]
Thanks to the probing questions of Chris Eggertsen over at Bloody-Disgusting, we’ve been delivered some exciting news about famed director John Landis, the man who was behind fantastic 80s monster movie An American Werewolf In London before moving primarily into comedies. The last horror projects he worked on were two episodes of the TV series […]
Classified today by the BBFC were the special features for John Landis’ Burke and Hare on DVD. This is UK DVD, mind, as the film is yet to have any US release announced. It’s becoming a bit of a trend for those Masters of Horror directors to see their films hit the UK before the […]
There’s going to be a feature film based on Thriller because that’s just what happens when people like Michael Jackson die and the exploitable rights to everything they ever did fall into the laps of managers and trusts. Unsurprisingly, there’s a biopic on the cards too. Let’s see how long it takes Jackson to make […]
We’re just a week away from the UK release of Burke and Hare, John Landis’ first theatrical feature film in over a decade. I. Can’t. Wait. Oh, and it’s also worth noting that I. Won’t. Let. The. Stupid. Poster. Put. Me. Off. There are two new TV spots right here, and over at Sky Movies […]
Earlier today, Simon Pegg tweeted the following: Encountered some consternation about the story of Burke and Hare being a comedy in light of the atrocity. Feel a blog coming on. He was going to run head-on at one of the oldest debates to plague comedians and dramatists. I made a mental note to check in […]
Click through this poster to make it so big you’ll be able to make out individual Hares… and Burkes. The Isla Fisher piece of the collage is rather unfortunate and more than a bit tacky, don’t you think? But at least there’s finally a poster of some sort. The film is in UK cinemas on […]
