Locke & Key’s Meredith Averill on Grief in Horror and Her Elm Street Dream Project

Locke & Key’s journey to the small screen was a long and winding one that culminated in something new for Netflix: a single season of television that somehow managed to pack what was essentially the whole of a comic book series’ plot into 10 tightly-crafted, hour-long episodes. Even more impressive, though, was the…Read more...

Horror movie monster garden 'gnomes'

Garden gnomes are great but, hey, it's October. Doesn't your yard (garden/stoop/desk) deserve something more seasonally appropriate? Enter Casper and Sadie Revenant's handmade Garden Nightmares. They're kind of like garden gnomes but much scarier. Each one is inspired by famous horror flicks' bad guys. They're not-officially-licensed creations so they have names like the "Springwood Terror - Nightmare" (read: "Freddy Krueger") or the "Crystal Lake Slasher" (Friday the 13th's "Jason Voorhees") ...

Robert Englund Has a Great ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ Reboot Idea

Freddy Krueger hasn’t haunted audience’s nightmares in a while. The last time the character graced the screen was in the abysmal 2010 remake. And it’s been even longer since we saw the true Freddy, as played by Robert Englund. It’s doubtful Englund will ever return to the role at this point, but the actor recently revealed a pretty great Nightmare on Elm Street reboot idea of his own. Will there ever be a new Nightmare on Elm Street movie? I’d say its inevitable. No popular horror franchise ...

Watch The Trailer For FredHeads, A Documentary Look at the Eclectic Freddy Krueger Fandom

Among nerd culture, horror fandoms tend to be some of the most distinctive. It takes a special person, after all, to be that into something meant to disturb and unsettle. To treat the terrible as an old friend requires a special sort of person.

‘The Walking Dead’ Plans to Honor AMC Series’ History in 100th Episode

On the sprawling 140-acre studio space of “The Walking Dead” outside Atlanta, there’s a small gravel lot that holds a special significance in the show’s history.

‘Stranger Things’ Kids Get Terrorized by Pennywise and Pinhead in Slasher Trailer Spoof

The Demagorgon is a truly terrifying monster that the kids from Stranger Things had to defeat, but what if they faced off against your run-of-the-mill slasher villain? It wouldn’t be pretty — we’re talking violence, strong language, adult content— all things that may be a bit too mature for the 11-something kids who saved the day and Will Byers. While we may not get a guy with a chainsaw chasing the kids around Hawkins, this spoof of the Stranger Things trailer imagines what it would be like if...

HDTGM: A Conversation with Renny Harlin

  A couple months back, Paul Scheer and the gang covered The Covenant on How Did This Get Made? Ever since then, Paul and I have been trying to arrange an interview with the film’s director, the great Renny Harlin, a Finnish-born filmmaker best known for helming action-packed classics like Die Hard 2, Cliffhanger.

The ‘Goonies’-Inspired ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ Remake We Didn’t See

The 2010 remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street was a disappointment for most Freddy Krueger fans. Even though the Platinum Dunes film made $32.9 million its opening weekend — which gave rise to discussions regarding a 3D sequel — it never led to another installment starring Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen). In fact, we recently heard about another A Nightmare on Elm Street remake in the works. But before acclaimed music video director Samuel Bayer signed up for the 2010 picture, Julien Maury and Ale...
