A quick trip over to the FACEBOOK page for the upcoming Universal release of THE THING turned out to be quite productive. Seems they have uploaded some new photos and they actually show us all a little of what they are up too. Looks like they are going to hold pretty true to what Carpenter had going on in his retelling, actually looks kinda promising. Check em out and let me know what you think.

FIRST LOOK! Teaser poster for THE THING

thing88

Been quiet on this one for quite a while. Last thing we saw were a couple of pretty non exciting stills. Today brings our first look at a teaser poster for the prequel that I actually kind of dig. It’s simple, effective…pretty good. They are still talking an Oct. 14th release on this one and here’s what it’s all about: Antarctica: an extraordinary continent of awesome beauty. It is also home to an isolated outpost … Continue reading

It’s a slow news day and it is THE THING remake remake so it’s worth a few seconds of our time. Like I said, don’t show a thing but the good news that comes … Continue reading

The History of Scifi in Horror

History_of_scifi_horror_clip_image002

Growing up in the 80’s for the most part, I found myself a Horror fan as much as the next kid. My best friend Wally and I joined a local movie-rental club; we would ride our bikes down to the movie place and rent every horror film the guy had. Being 13-14 it was great because he would let us rent the -R- movies with the gratuitous nudity in them. Looking back, I am still … Continue reading

Ackerman called “Horrorwood”. Now before I get started I just want to let you know that there … Continue reading

How does one identify a monster? The question is easier to answer by example than definition. In movie terms, a monster is something unnatural, dangerous and out of control. King Kong (1933), the Frankenstein (1931) monster, Godzilla (1954), Dracula (1931), Ray Harryhausen’s cyclops from The Seventh Voyage Of Sinbad (1958), the Alien (1979), The Mummy (1932). That’s the monster A-list, but gobbling along in their wake are the tentacled, radioactive invaders of the fifties – … Continue reading

Charity screening of THE THING at Stratford Picturehouse

HorrorNews.net-Thumbnail

A team of scientists in the Arctic are infiltrated by a shape-shifting alien which has the ability to replicate the appearance of the people it kills. This is arguably Carpenter’s most effective film, creating a real sense of claustrophobic paranoia through its isolated location, Ennio Morricone’s iconic score, and the distrust shown among the men as they try to work out who is still human. Shunned by the public on its initial release (soon after … Continue reading
