New Trailer for Season Two of “Stranger Things”

Stranger Things, the biggest surprise hit of last year, just dropped their trailer for the eagerly-awaited second season at San Diego Comic Con and it contains so much awesome! It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.

The nerdfest is strong with this trailer. From the hardest video game of all-time (Dragon’s Lair) to Ghostbusters costumes to Sean Astin to Michael Jackson’s Thriller, this trailer screams 80’s as much as it screams, “oh crap, Hawkins is in trouble”. By the looks of that Stephen King’s The Mist-type monster lurking in Hawkins, it seems like the town is in for a rough ride. read more

Vamp Special Edition Blu-Ray Review

The mid-1980’s was rife with vampire films that mixed horror and comedy and featured young casts of up-and-coming talent.  The film that gets most of the credit for kicking off this sub-genre is 1985’s Fright Night.  Fright Night modernized the vampire for the 1980’s, yet kept all of the classic superstitions and gothic influences.

While Fright Night was certainly the first, the second film to push vampires into the day-glow 1980’s was the cult classic Vamp.  After watching Arrow Video’s new special edition blu-ray release, it is more clear than ever that Vamp is an underappreciated horror film from the “Me” decade.  read more

Ghostbuster Toys Already on Clearance Before Film’s Release?

Multiple fans around the country have been snapping pictures of toys and action figures based on the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot with clearance stickers on them.

This is a surprising move, as the film won’t be released until July 15th of this year. All pictures that can be found on the internet are from Target. There have been no reports of mark-downs at other national retailers such as Toys ‘R Us or Walmart at this time. Many are attributing the drop in price due to the backlash against the new film by hardcore fans of the original films and cartoon series. read more
