In this article over at Stephen King Revisited, Bev Vincent looks back at Stephen King/Richard Bachman’s Rage, or Getting it On as it was formerly known.
There were so many best of/worst of/top 10 lists this week that it was almost impossible to whittle them down to just one. However, this one from Playboy should help you out if you’re stuck for something decent to watch.
As a child, while many of my classmates were whacking off over Power Rangers and VR Troopers, I was watching as much horror as I could get my grubby little hands on – usually on a tenth generation VHS which became grainy during, erm, the more sexy parts. But what films and cartoons are a good starting point for kids interested in horror? Icons of Fright investigates.
Videogame-to-movie adaptations have a long history when it comes to falling short of the mark (Street Fighter, anyone?), and while it has its fans, Paul WS Anderson’s Resident Evil also has its fair share of detractors. In this article, Bloody Disgusting steps up to defend the first film in what appears to be a never-ending franchise.
If there is a better way to celebrate the end of 2014 than looking back at the year’s horror, like this article from RogerEbert.com, then I don’t know what it is.
