Tony Todd Shares His Thoughts on "Candyman" Remake

It was only matter of time before Candyman actor Tony Todd would weigh in his thoughts on the Jordan Peele produced upcoming "spiritual sequel" of the original Candyman.

Homecoming Time: Welcoming Back Clive

ROB RIDENOUR on December 3, 2018 at 5:53 pm As a fan of Clive Barker, I’m overjoyed to see him slowly introducing himself back into fan circles. It’s been far too long. I think this year’s “Texas Frightmare Weekend”really showed him that the fans do miss him. Not only that, but as a horror community in general, we love him too.

Tuesday Tunes: "Sweetest Maleficia"

For this Tuesday Tunes I wanted to share a song by the English extreme metal band Cradle of Filth called "Sweetest Maleficia" from their eighth studio album Godspeed on the Devil's Thunder. The album is based upon the French serial killer Gilles de Rais who fought for the French army under Joan of Arc during the Hundred Years' War. He was very close with her, but when she was burned at the stake by the church, De Rais went insane and began murdering children. It's a very disturbing album...


Clive Barker's Torturted Souls Being Re-vived!

At this year’s New York Comic Con artist and Spawn creator Todd McFarlane revealed that his toy company is going back to the basics by reviving not only his popular toy-line Movie Maniacs, but also Clive Barker’s classic toy series...

This alone makes the book worth owning. Other contributors...
