Hot on the heels of OCULUS director Mike FLANAGAN is keeping the ball rolling as it was announced that he will take the helm of the film adaption of Stephen King’s GERALD’S GAME.

Visionary Artist H.R. Giger Passes

alien___h_r__giger_pitch___by_adonihs-d2xjobm

To say that H.R. Giger was influential in the horror arena is like saying the sun is influential in the heating of the earth. Quite simply horror as we know it today would not exist if not for the amazing talent and vision of H.R. Giger. As a young and interested horror fan in the 70’s his surreal and oddly sexual artwork literally drew me in and then when those drawings came to life in … Continue reading

AHS-freakshow-logo

It would only stand to reason that AHS would continue the formula that has made it such a success. Build a dynamic ensemble cast around the iconic Jessica Lange, set it in an interesting and creepy setting and through one bad ass killer at us and then let the blood fall where it may. We know that Lange returns in Oct. We also know that this year will be a circus theme and now thanks … Continue reading
