A Sopranos Actor Is Ready To Haunt Your Lunch Meat This Halloween As The Gabaghoul

Happy Halloween! You know, sometimes I feel a little bad for some of the supporting "Sopranos" actors. Many of them are stuck playing wiseguys for the rest of their lives, and I have to imagine that they sometimes get a little tired of that. But hey, work is work, and Vincent Pastore, who memorably played Big Pussy on "The Sopranos," is now out here hocking lunch meat as a spooktacular character named the Gabaghoul. Normally, we here at /Film don't report on news about cold cuts, but this was to...

Ariel Fisher’s Favorite Movies of All Time

It’s strange being asked to write something about yourself where you work. I’ve been writing about and for myself for years now, but somehow doing it this publicly always feels like putting on shoes that are one size too big. Alas, I digress already. Unfortunately, it’s a habit. I’ll try to keep it contained. Anyway! I’m Ariel Fisher and I’ve been freelancing for /Film for a few years now. I’ve recently become the latest editorial addition to the news desk and I’m absolutely in love with the ...

MonsterVision

Back in the 1990s, TNT aired a program called MonsterVision. The show took many forms over the course of the decade, including narrators and guest hosts. There was even a short stint in which famed magicians Penn and Teller hosted marathons of old B-Movies from the 1950s and 1960s. Ultimately, though, the reason MonsterVision looms large is because Joe Bob Briggs hosted the program from 1996 until the show’s demise in 2000.

6WH: Speed Round and Halloween

Time flies when you're terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought. After six weeks of marathoning horror movies, there are a bunch of films that I've watched that I didn't write about. Maybe because it didn't fit in a given week's theme, or perhaps I just didn't have that much to say about it, or maybe I do have a lot to say about it but didn't have the time or inclination to do so. As of this moment, I've watched 54 horror (or horror-adjacent, I guess) movies this Halloween season (with...

Coming down the homestretch of the Six Weeks of Halloween horror movie marathon, this week, we're going to shift focus away from physical media (a theme that's dominated the first half of the marathon) and embrace the future with a streaming service, Shudder. It's a niche site focusing on horror and thriller titles and as such, it's pretty much a necessity for any modern horror movie fan. They have their own website and apps, but since their reach is somewhat limited, I actually just subscribe v...

During last year's Six Weeks of Halloween, I spent a couple of weeks covering what I had termed "Obscure Scream Queens", including Erika Blanc and Isabelle Adjani. This weekend, we return to this sort of theme with a trio of films starring 80s B-movie star Linnea Quigley. Literally off the bus from Iowa, she hit Los Angeles in the late 70s and began picking up small roles in B movies, eventually graduating (pun intended!) to a bigger role in the 1981 Troma slasher Graduation Day. She followed th...
