This week in 1964 part two of Herschell Gordon Lewis’ Blood Trilogy, Two Thousand Maniacs! hit drive-in theaters much to the disgust of theater-goers.
This Week in Horror
This week in horror, moviegoers were introduced to the animal that is Eddie Quist.
Army of Darkness really needs no introduction here. Ash faces many ridiculous foes including a band of tiny versions of himself, the wily Necronomicon, and of course, an army of undead soldiers.
Films released this week in horror history left a lot of dead in their wake and set the bar for movies to come.
This week in 1980, we have killer sailors, blood-thirsty cannibals, and some good old-fashioned body horror. First up, John Carpenter’s The Fog.
Scared to Death opened this week in 1947 and stars Bela Lugosi in his only color film
This week in horror history saw the birth of two men who would change the face of the genre forever. Edgar Allen Poe, king of all-thing macabre and haunter of teen Goth dreams, was born January 19, 1809.
Man, January 12 and 13 are pretty amazing days in the history of horror movies. Universal Pictures released The Invisible Man Returns, a sequel to one of their most classic horror titles, that boasted never-before -seen visual effects for which John P. Fulton received an Oscar nomination
First off, let’s just take a moment to give thanks for December 31, 1941, the day that Sean S. Cunningham, the creator of the Friday the 13th franchise was born. Do you think his first words were "ch-ch-ch- ma-ma-ma"?
Christmas-time 1973 delivered a major present for horror fans wrapped in a big pukey bow. The Exorcist premiered December 26, and changed the face of movie making while dividing critics, enraging some moviegoers, and causing a great debate within the MPAA ratings system.
