The Predator – Teaser Trailer

What is it with the Alien and Predator franchises? It almost feels like they’re being deliberately sabotaged (few other things can explain why Ridley Scott is so intent on undermining a series he himself helped to create) by some really bizarre decisions on the part of the people directing them, and it’s a pity. In […]

Will the Nightbreed Rise Again?

Production company Morgan Creek recently announced that they’re changing their name to the Morgan Creek Entertainment Group. And…why would anyone (who isn’t directly or indirectly involved with Morgan Creek) care? The reason is because one of the movies in their catalogue is Clive Barker’s Nightbreed (based on the short story, Cabal from The Books of […]

Discovering A Relic Within A Cabinet Of Curiosities

Peter Hyams’ 1997’s creature-feature, The Relic, was a pretty good movie.  It featured Tom Sizemore (despite his personal foibles, the man’s a damn good actor) as Lt. Vincent D’Agosta, who had to stop a mysterious killer who’s MO was beheading. He follows the bodies to–if I recall–The Museum of Natural History, where something monstrous has returned home. And it’s a good movie, […]

Colony, Ep. 1 – Review

When we first meet Will Bowman (Josh Halloway) he’s preparing breakfast–or at least attempting to–for his family, that consists of his wife Katie (Sarah Wayne Callies, most recently of The Walking Dead) and three children, before he heads out to work. Though one of his sons is missing, and Will is doing all he can […]

Zombeavers – Review

“Watch If Just So You Can Say You Do Did (Or You Really Like Bill Burr).  Other Than That, I’ve Got Nothin.’” Bill Burr!  Bill Burr is one of the first people you see when Zombeavers starts, and maybe it’s just that he’s not too discriminating about the roles he chooses, but I was genuinely happy to […]

Power/Rangers – Short Movie

While this trailer has nothing to do with Haim Saban’s upcoming Power Rangers movie (in which Roberto Orci is playing a lead role, so magic blood is almost ensured to somehow play a role) they’re certainly taking it seriously enough to threaten legal action against its creators. That being said, Power/Rangers is an interesting take on the characters […]

Thunderbirds Are Go! Goes Practical (Sort Of)

Gerry Anderson as a producer has always fascinated me.  Despite being behind some of the most innovative puppet (Supermarionation)-based television series, he was never entirely satisfied with working with them, and always wanted to work with flesh and blood actors. That being said, he first time that he did so, in UFO, Journey To The Far Side […]
