“You’ve never lived until you’ve been hit in the face by a snot cannon,” Lucy Lawless says with deadpan conviction in this brief but fun behind-the-scenes look at Ash vs Evil Dead. This clip shows her character, Ruby, getting absolutely doused with the grossest stuff imaginable—then watching the playback with utter…
October is creepin’ in, which means you’re allowed to start eating Fun Size candy bars instead of real meals, and TV programming is about to get a whole lot spookier. Syfy has released its upcoming slate of original horror movies to accompany the premiere of its Creepypasta-inspired series Channel Zero.
After Karen Gillan’s skimpy jungle wear showed up in the Jumanji set photo last week, there were constant promises that it would make sense once you saw the film. These new plot rumors actually do explain the outfit, but there’s only one way they might manage to justify it.
Fire up the grill and invite me over, friend. Today, we feast in celebration.
These days we’re used to big crossover movies: Batman v Superman, The Avengers, Freddy vs. Jason, the list goes on. In Japan, they recently released their own horror version. It’s called Sadako vs. Kayako, or in simpler terms, The Ring vs. The Grudge. On paper, that’s an incredibly cool concept. In execution, it’s a…
The video for “Utopian Façade,” off John Carpenter’s Lost Themes II, isn’t actually directed by the horror master. But directors Gavin Hignight and Ben Verhulst definitely took inspiration from Carpenter’s style—plus some other cool science-fiction influences (can’t resist those Logan’s Run vibes) too.
It seems like a BBC radio adaptation of Neil Gaiman is quickly becoming a winter tradition. This year, his fantastical romance adventure Stardust is the one getting the full-cast audio drama treatment.
Chopping Mall has earned its cult status for many good reasons. It’s fast-paced, it has a totally 1980s setting, it has one of the best exploding heads in all of horror cinema, and its villains are killer robots. And now, thanks to the Vestron Video Collector’s Series of snazzy Blu-rays, it’s never looked better.
In 2015, Sony Pictures announced they’d start their own superhero cinematic universe using the characters of Valiant Comics. The plan was to use Bloodshot and Harbinger to start things off and it seems, while that’s still in play, the titles have been flipped around.
Jupiter’s moon Europa is on the shortlist of places we might discover alien life in our solar system. And today, the prospects for finding extraterrestrial microbes on this little ice moon got a lot better, when NASA unveiled new evidence for water geysers near Europa’s south pole.

There are many incredible looking comic books out these days, but one of my favorite-looking series at the moment is thanks to the incredible art of Russell Dauterman and colorist Matthew Wilson in The Mighty Thor. Here’s some choice bits of art from their wonderful work.
When Raw had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, the big story was two people were taken out of the theater on stretchers. I believe that story, but I think it’s just as likely they fainted at how good the movie is than it was because of the gore.
The Tale of Peter Rabbit was first published in 1902, which means almost every person with access to books has read it ot had it read to them. Seems like a solid audience to aim at for a big, Hollywood family movie, which may have something to do with the reason why Sony Pictures has announced it’s making a…
Rap and anime are like salt and caramel—not an intuitive match, but a delightful one. Most referenced among rap superstars like Lupe Fiasco, Soulja Boy and RZA is the classic ‘90s staple Dragon Ball Z, your childhood five o’clock Toonami fixture.
It’s finally here! Just two weeks before the October 10 premiere, we have our first actual clip of Supergirl and Superman in action.
