Meet Tom Woodruff. You’ve seen him in movies but probably didn’t even realize he was in them because he specializes in playing creatures. That is, he’s been the alien in Aliens, a gorilla in various TV shows and movies, done work for Jumanji, and so much more. What’s cool is to hear him talk about his craft and…
With a Power Rangers movie of indeterminate quality on the way, a new comic book from Boom Studios performing outrageously well, and DVD sets of the original Super Sentai series finally hitting the U.S., it’s also the perfect time to take all the monsters from the original Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers TV series, and…
Most of Animal Planet’s “Monster Week” programming is designed to promote the season finale of its highest-rated program, River Monsters, a show about ferocious fish. But tucked within the schedule is a special entitled Yeti Or Not, which will probe the existence of a certain Himalayan-dwelling giant.
A mysterious—and possibly mythical—monster menaces a pair of brothers, and their good-looking friends, in the Australian outback. That’s all we know about Red Billabong, an in-the-works horror thriller from director Luke Sparke. But as huge fans of creature features, that’s enough to get us excited.
We already knew that the CW was cooking up an 1880-set show called Transylvania, about “a headstrong young woman” (sigh) who travels from New York to Transylvania in search of her missing father, with the added bonus of encounters with “the most famous monsters and villains in history.”
Greetings and salutations, my friends! I’m back, and I couldn’t be more delighted to be back. I have a lot to catch up on, so let’s get right to it—I’ve received questions about a certain Star Wars couple, how the Deadpool movie will change the industry, why Talking Dead even exists, and the mystery of what made Leia…
Augmented reality artist Marty Cooper is back with his always fun Aug(de)mented Reality series that splices imaginative little drawings of cute monsters into real life. They’re always so clever and up to no good, popping out of places you’d least expect them to and doing things with so much pizazz that you’d wish they…
Filmmaker Harry Chaskin’s Bygone Behemoth imagines the loneliness of a Godzilla-like movie monster whose career has long since ended, and whose fame has faded from show-biz memory. The stop-motion is wonderful, and the details (d’aww ... Mothra obituary!) are surprisingly moving.
When we previewed some art from Bestiary 5 a few weeks ago, it merely looked like a cool book of monsters. Now that we’ve got our hands on it, we’re convinced that even the most jaded, been-there-done-that gamer is going to need a copy. This is a killer creature collection.
Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands, which came out 25 years ago this week, is more than just an updating of Frankenstein. It’s the story of a gentle robot who tries to live among regular people—and when I saw it as a little kid, this movie meant everything to me.
You can’t play an RPG without monsters, and you can’t play a horror RPG without some really, really f$%&ing scary monsters. Here are some of our favorites.
R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps book series has been making children squirm since 1992, and now there’s a movie that aims to capture that same mix of creepy monsters and silliness. But the scariest thing in Goosebumps is Jack Black’s weird accent. And this film is strictly for kids.
Remember Tremors, the 1990 monster comedy in which Kevin Bacon battles giant underground worms in the desert? Of course you do. Tremors rules. But did you know the series is still going, with a fifth installment—Tremors 5: Bloodlines—coming to Blu-ray and DVD tomorrow?
Mike Mignola gave us Hellboy, so it’s probably not surprising that he’s designed a totally bizarre new monster, which you can glimpse above. But what the hell is it? That’s an excellent question, since it’s on the cover of a new anthology called What the #@&% Is That?
Universal Orlando transforms itself into a murderous, terrifying gothic wonderland every fall. This year is the 25th anniversary of Halloween Horror Nights, and it’s filled with iconic scenes from horror history that make the guests victims in their personal horror movies. Here’s how they build their elaborate horror…
If you want to add some realistic wounds to your zombie makeup or just do a better job applying those cosplay elf ears, Hollywood Makeup Lab can guide you step by step through some basic procedures that will make your fantastic creations and creepy monsters come to life.
Giving fans a full two months to hunt down the entire collection before Halloween arrives, Lego has finally revealed that its Monster-filled Series 14 Minifig collection will officially be available starting on September 1.
Jack Black plays a cantankerous version of real-life horror author R.L. Stine, who lives in a world where his successful Goosebumps books aren’t just a scary YA series, but also a way in which the writer battles actual monsters. How is this going to work, exactly? We asked producer Neal H. Moritz and director Rob…
The heroes are the best-known part of Greek mythology, but what makes a hero? Having monsters to fight, that's what. Luckily for the heroes, the Greeks had the strangest, coolest, most terrifying monsters mythology had to offer — here is a baker's dozen of the best.
