Witching Hour #15 - Wally Wood art

Witching Hour v1 #15, 1971 - An unpredictable brute becomes a killer under the care of the institutional psychiatrist. Most of the scenes are darkly lit, showcasing Wally Wood's mastery of shadow and highlights (see interior page below). His meticulous detail is vaguely reminiscent of his EC tales of the 1950s. The artwork is ominous and disturbing, appropriately setting the tone for the ending [Author: Unknown]

Based on the Marvel Comics character, Morbius, the Living Vampire, "Morbius" is the latest addition to Sony's shared universe of Spider-Man characters.So far, that universe hasn't included much actual Spider-Man, but that hasn't stopped the studio from branding it Sony's Spider-Man universe. It does include Tom Hardy's ...

Boondock Saints 3 In The Works, Troy Duffy, Norman Reedus, And Sean Patrick Flanery Returning

Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery are ready to go back to the boondocks. Reedus and Flanery will reprise their roles as the fraternal vigilante twins, Connor and Murphy MacManus, in "The Boondock Saints III." Deadline reports that Flanery will pen the script with director Troy Duffy "with a lot of input from Reedus." This marks a slight departure from the first two films, which Duffy wrote and directed himself. The original "Boondock Saints" hit theaters in 1999, and in the decades since it...

Stephen King Adaptation The Boogeyman Is Heading To Hulu

In July of 2020, horror streaming service Shudder released an hour-long horror movie called "Host" shot entirely over the video messenger service and certified MVP of COVID-19, Zoom. With most of Hollywood at a screeching production halt and the world relegated to staying indoors, "Host" was an exciting — and straight-up terrifying — new release. Following the success of "Host," Savage directed the film "Dashcam" for Blumhouse, which played at the Toronto International Film Festival, the London ...

The 8 Best And 7 Worst Spike Lee Movies

Spike Lee has been called many things — activist, historian, filmmaker, artisan, American interrogator, and general examiner of the Black condition. However, fighter may be the most familiar of them. Consider fighting as a shorthand for Lee's artistry, but also as a deceptive quality when his battles — on a script, in a Lee joint, in the news, and at a film festival — are just the byproducts of his truth; a Lee don't-give-a-damn sort of truth.To this day, few can make a cinematic statement like ...

Who Is The Main Black Adam Villain?

Finally, "Black Adam" has come back to the DC FanDome. But the film's star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson didn't just bring some concept art of the titular character this time. The People's Champion gave the people what they want: A first look teaser showing the Man in Black in action.However, one could argue that Black Adam's actions in this footage don't seem very heroic. After all, it's not often that a hero will electrocute a civilian down to their skeleton. Long-time fans of Shazam are very fami...

Eternals Is Just 'An Introduction To A Larger Story' For Kit Harington's Black Knight [Exclusive]

That's right, Jon Snow himself, Kit Harington, is in Chloé Zhao's "Eternals," and he's hinted that there's plenty of potential for him to have his own movie or show up somewhere else in the MCU. In "Eternals," Harington plays Dane Whitman, a character who becomes the Black Knight in the comic books when he takes up the cursed Ebony B...

Dune, Antlers, Last Night In Soho Had A Scary Bad Halloween At The Box Office

Halloween happened over the weekend, and given that the holiday all but didn't happen in 2020, there was much pent-up desire to enjoy the spooky season properly this year. While that was surely rewarding in its own way for those who observe the holiday, it wasn't great for the box office as the weekend's new offerings, namely "Antlers" and "Last Night In Soho," suffered (at least in part) as a result. The weekend wasn't that kind to "Dune," either, or virtually any other movie that was vying for...
