In Memoriam: Ray Harryhausen by Rob Vaux, Writer
(May 07, 2013)
I feel quite fortunate to have first caught Ray Harryhausen as he was meant to be seen – a summer matinee at my neighborhood theater – before he retired from moviemaking. The movie was Clash of the Titans (the good one), and I was nine. I can’t imag

Mania Box Office Report: King Iron Man by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(May 05, 2013)
Well the summer has now officially begun. Which among you did not see Iron Man 3? Well the good news is, if you didn’t, you will contribute to it’s second weekend.

Shock-O-Rama: Fear is The Key by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(May 01, 2013)
A year ago this weekend I made what's become an annual cult cinema pilgrimage to Philadelphia for Exhumed Films' eX-Fest II. The event is a twelve hour indulgence of all things rare, exploitative, and sleazy in 35mm (a format which regular readers know my

The Summer of '83: The Hunger by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(April 30, 2013)
Vampire movies were always cool, but it took The Hunger to make them modern. Before that, film bloodsuckers tended to ooze around in Rudolph Valentino capes, using their ungodly charisma to compensate for their dated fashion sense. The few exceptions – G

The Summer of '83: Something Wicked This Way Comes by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(April 29, 2013)
Vampire movies were always cool, but it took The Hunger to make them modern. Before that, their bloodsuckers tended to ooze around in Rudolph Valentino capes, using their ungodly charisma to compensate for their rather dated fashion sense. The few exceptio

Mania Box Office Report: Iron Man 3 - World Numbers by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(April 28, 2013)
Maniacs, Pain and Gain won the weekend. Last week’s big Sci-Fi film, Oblivion, fell to the second spot. Pain and Gain taking the number one spot is great for Michael Bay. That news is insignificant compared to Iron Man 3. That’s right Maniacs, Iron Man

Shock-O-Rama: The Night of a Thousand Cats by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(April 24, 2013)
The Night of Thousand Cats is an experience. Not unlike the freakish weather we've been experiencing over the last few years, this film requires that a number of things align in it's favor for optimum impact. Working best when viewed with a group of exploi

Shock-O-Rama: The Godfather Squad by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Comic Geek
(April 17, 2013)
Whenever I want to watch a Kung-Fu film, the first thing that I need to decide is exactly what flavor I'm in the mood for. Wushu epic or inventive Jackie Chan fun fest? Golden Harvest classic or something more modern staring Jet Li.

Mania Box Office Report: 42 Now and Forever by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(April 15, 2013)
With baseball returning to the stadiums across the country it should come as no surprise that 42 won the box office. It could be that or the fact that Scary Movie V no longer has an audience. The box office numbers below though show that Scary Movie V in t

The Summer of '83: The Evil Dead by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(April 15, 2013)
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the summer of 1983, and while it can’t help to match the summer of ’82 for the sheer staggering number of classics… well, you guys really dug our film-by-film coverage last year, and we’d love to follow it up

2013 MTV Movie Award Winners by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(April 14, 2013)
The MTV Movie Awards happened on Sunday Night. The MTV Movie Awards used to be a must see event. Now it’s as relevant as the Teen Choice Awards. This marked a monumental year for the MTV Movie Awards. No, they didn’t hand out any life time achievements

C-3PO at Star Wars Celebration Europe by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(April 11, 2013)
For the next couple of years Star Wars is going to be a apart of our every day lives. To be fair, isn’t it already? To get a jump start on the Star Wars insanity that will be coming, Mania plans on attending Star Wars Celebration Europe. A major cast mem

Shock-O-Rama: Demons by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(April 10, 2013)
Nothing cramps the style of unchaperoned teens like Satan. I would figure he'd leave them to their sinful indulgences, then settle up accounts after time had it's way with them. But the Devil isn't a patient creature and he's also not content to simply pil

Mania Box Office Report: Hail to the Dead Baby! by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(April 08, 2013)
The Evil Dead took home the box office this weekend and the dinosaurs still ruled their island. I was wondering if a remake of film a film released 32 year ago would have any steam at the box office. On that note, what about one released 20 years ago? I th

In Memoriam: Roger Ebert by Rob Vaux, Writer
(April 04, 2013)
I remember the first time I tuned into Sneak Previews, the PBS movie show featuring a pair of Chicago critics named Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert. Like of a lot of movie fans, I found the show a revelation: snarky, witty and fun, but also filled with passion

Shock-O-Rama: Within the Woods by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(April 03, 2013)
With Evil Dead hitting theaters this Friday it's been damned near impossible go anywhere on the 'net without coming across press for it (or being startled at 2 a.m. by it's brilliant "Don't Skip it" add on YouTube). The reaction to a remake of a franchise

Welcome back to Tuesday Terrors your regular Mania fix of all things horror! Now check out our title pic this week of Michonne from The Walking Dead. But look close…that’s not a picture from the series but rather an image of the Michonne figure from

Mania Box Office Report: Yo Joe! by Robert T. Trate , News Editor
(April 01, 2013)
Was it nostalgia or was it that we have all forgotten by Stephen Sommers original film? Perhaps we just love the idea of G.I.Joe that much, that we are willing to fork over our money? No I got it. It was the Tatum! Channing Tatum brought out the ladies. Wh

Shock-O-Rama: Rubber by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(March 27, 2013)
An accountant, checking his watch while struggling to maintain his grips on a plethora of binoculars. An empty desert road dotted with black wooden chairs, staggered about at odd angles. An unmarked cop car approaches up the road, absurdly swerving to and

Mania Box Office Report: The Croods Wins. Yes, The Croods by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(March 24, 2013)
It definitely had a better cast than Escape from Planet Earth, but I’m sure none at Dreamworks thought that it would win the weekend. However, if you look at the numbers, Olympus Has Fallen is the true winner of the weekend. It grossed half its budget al

Shock-O-Rama: The Beyond by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(March 20, 2013)
Considered by some to be the Lucio Fulci's best work, ever better than more well known Zombie (off the kedge, shark on corpse fans!), The Beyond began to cement its modern popular midnight movie status in the mid-90's, when it hit the American home video m
