Shock-O-Rama: Remembering David Carradine by Chuck Francisco , Columnist and Insomniac
(June 02, 2012)
Three years ago tomorrow (June 3rd), we lost a genre jumping, cult film luminary. A star of stage and screen, he was a coworker of Hitchcock and Corman and Tarantino. Today I remember David Carradine in the most fitting way available: by delving into his

(May 29, 2012)
We’ve got an exclusive for you this week from Midnight Releasing for their new film “Lost Woods”. What starts as a gathering of friends in the woods quickly turns into an uncomfortable reunion for Darrin Noland after he learns that Warren, someone h

Mania Box Office Report: The Avengers Fall by Robert T. Trate, News Editor

Shock-O-Rama: Burial Ground by Chuck Francisco , Columnist
(May 26, 2012)
There aren't many films which I can, in all honesty, claim have changed my life. This incredibly odd Italian job released, at the dawn of the 80's, is one of them. Exposed to the world under a bevy of titles including The Nights of Terror, The Zombie Dead,

In Search of the Real Men in Black by Nick Redfern, Columnist and Monster Hunter
(May 23, 2012)
Men in Black 3 is finally among us, and the exploits of those black-garbed secret agents of an equally secret agency - whose job it is to hide the truth about an alien presence on our world - are set to entertain cinema-goers just about here, there and eve

Mania Box Office Report: Avengers Sinks Battleship by Robert T. Trate, News Editor

Shock-O-Rama: Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky by Chuck Francisco, Columnist
(May 19, 2012)
Let's reminisce, you and I; ride shotgun in my way back machine. The time is 1998 and we're teenagers cruising the wire racks of a mall bound Suncoast video store. Like hanging with Abe Lincoln, we've the foresight to know we're shopping in a dead store wa

Mania Box Office Report: Avengers Enters the Billion Dollar Club by Robert T. Trate , News Editor
(May 13, 2012)
It would have been a coup if Dark Shadows would have actually beat The Avengers this weekend. That wasn’t going to happen. In all honesty, the only film that probably would have beaten The Avengers comes at the end of the summer, The Dark knight Rises. N

Shock-O-Rama: Count Yorga, Vampire by Chuck Francisco, Columnist
(May 12, 2012)
There was a time, wonderfully unrivaled, when vampire films were released for good and for awesome. You could purchase a ticket to any of these similarly themed films and be reliably rewarded with copiously seduced bare breasts, smarmy faux European gentl

We interrupt Mania’s Box Office Report for the following statements: Finally, Joss Whedon is going to get the respect he so rightfully deserves. Not from the people who saw their first Joss Whedon project this weekend, no. Nor will it be from all thos

Tons to talk about in Tuesday Terrors this week. Lots of big news going around about casting and new films. We’ve got several new trailers and reviews to check out. Did anyone watch Supernatural last week? They mentioned that there’s only two ep

DVD Shopping Bag: Gremlins and Gremlins 2 on Blu-ray by Robert T. Trate , Columnist
(May 01, 2012)
Gremlins 2: The New Batch (1990) will finally get a Blu-ray release next week. I got the chance to sit back and watch both of Joe Dante’s classic films in 1080p. I was surprised to see how well they both really hold up. The comedy, the horror, and the st

Mania Box Office Report: Avengers Assemble by Robert T. Trate , News Editor
(April 29, 2012)
I actually thought that Jason Statham’s SAFE was going to win the box office. The Summer Blockbusters are knocking on our door and a Statham movie should have killed. SAFE placed sixth on the box office chart and will silently pass into the night. The Hu

A CASE OF THE RE’S: THE REBOOT, REMAKE, & REIMAGINING 2.0 by Jarrett Kruse, Critic
(April 17, 2012)
While driving in Hollywood last fall, I looked up to see three billboards for movies soon to hit theaters. It made me laugh when I realized that I had seen all three movies before: FOOTLOOSE, THE THING and THE THREE MUSKETEERS. Save for the gas prices, I i
