Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Good news, everyone. The horror wizard John Carpenter is heading back to the genre with a new series for the SyFy network called Tales For A Halloween Night. Carpenter will executive produce the series and hopefully direct and write some of the episodes. The series is based off of Carpenter’s own horror anthology in graphic novel form. The search for writers, directors, and actors are currently in full force.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

commando-bennett

We have an amazing 16th episode of the newest podcast under the MULTI-MEDIA MEN banner called ‘Media-Ocrity‘, where the show is just – okay. Here on the show, we focus strictly on horror/sci-fi, comic books, and video games – basically all the fun stuff that tickles your fancy. In our fifteenth episode, titled ‘The Game of Gay Chicken That Got Out of Hand over a John Carpenter Video Game‘, we discuss all of John Carpenter’s movies, some of the best horror video games that scared us, and how a ton of action movies from our childhood have a lot of homo-erotic themes. This episode is guaranteed to thrill you, chill you, and fulfill you. I am joined pop-culture wizard Jonathan Atterbury and comic book artist Jeremy Megert.

Hi, Bryan Here….

I’ve already noticed as of a couple of weeks ago that stores have already set up shop for Halloween.  I’m getting psyched already for this year’s Halloween celebrations.  And of course, what is Halloween without John Carpenter’s ‘Halloween’?  I just love this film, and am excited that this horror classic is returning to the theater.  The film will open in theaters on October 25th and run through October 31st.  Participating theaters will be listed beginning Friday, Sept 14, and new locations will be added continuously through Sept 28. Be sure to check back with ScreenVision for newly added theaters.  Scroll down for our current list and please check back for updates!  You can click the links below to purchase tickets as well.

Hi, Bryan Here….

I’m so excited for this release.  Finally, the ultimate edition blu-ray for John Carpenter’s ‘The Live’ starring Rowdy Roddy Piper will be released November 6th, 2012.  I was hoping they’d get this out before Halloween, but at least they are getting it out before the holiday season.  Tons of AWESOME extras come with this release.  I can wait.  No specs have been announced yet, but I will update everyone once those become available. That cover art is too cool.

Favorite Movie Scene of the Day #14!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 18th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Since Ed Sheeran made a very quick cameo in this first episode of Season 7 of HBO’s Game of Thrones, a good friend of mine – Suzahhhnn, mentioned that the next Favorite Movie Scene of the Day should be one where a musician made a fun cameo in a movie. I thought it was a great idea and here we are. However, what movie to do, I thought. The obvious one would be Blues Brothers, but that will be saved for another time. As I was thinking and going through my movie collection, it almost instantly came to me, like a lightning bolt.

Bring in the Horror Holiday Cheer with Better Watch Out!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 14th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

I’m a sucker for holiday horror movies. They are so much fun and full of blood and holiday cheer. There’s a new film called ‘Better Watch Out‘ that will be released in theaters and on VOD on October 6th, which is just in time for Halloween. This very short teaser trailer is quite funny, which shows a couple of women singing Christmas carols, where a third woman is running from an unidentified attacker, where she quickly gets chopped up. I’m all in.

Soundtracks we want to see released on Vinyl!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 15th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

preview

I just love soundtracks to movies. I always have and I believe I always will. There is something about a score to a film that just perks me up in all the right ways and inspires my creative side, whether it be to write a screenplay or go back an watch that old film I love. Music is an integral part to films and is considered to be the mojo of every movie. I’m sure we’ve all seen that odd YouTube video of the final scene in Star Wars: A New Hope, where Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Chewbacca walk down a crowded arena to receive their medals to zero music. It’s super weird and awkward with no music, but just random sound effects of footsteps and a rare cough, laugh, and Chewie’s roar. John Williams did such a great job, as he always does with Star Wars music, but that final scene of music really puts your emotions on full blast. It’s all from the soundtrack too.

Blu-ray Review: GET OUT!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 25th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

When you say the name Jordan Peele, you would most likely think of the brilliant comedic stylings of Key and Peele or Peele’s time on MadTV. You might even crack a big smile, thinking of Peele’s recent film Keanu. But I’m willing to bet you wouldn’t think of the words “horror maestro” when you see Jordan Peele’s name come across the screen. And that’s exactly what Peele can add to his resume résumé with his new movie Get Out, which he wrote and directed for the genre mogul Blumhouse.

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Gate’!

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Screen Shot 2017-02-21 at 2.17.28 PM

THE FILM

The 1980s were very good to us horror buffs in the form of films. We were introduced to Freddy Krueger, Pinhead, Re-Animator, John Carpenter’sThe Thing‘, ‘The Shining‘, ‘Child’s Play‘, ‘The Lost Boys‘ and the wonderful world of ‘Evil Dead‘ to name just a few. I guess you could say that the 80’s gave us some of the very BEST horror films ever made. One of the 80’s horror films that is just as good and as fun as the above mentioned movies, but rarely gets a mention is the 1986 film ‘The Gate‘, directed by Tibor Takacs.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Halloween-main

We’ve talked about a ‘Halloween‘ remake before here. Hell, Rob Zombie even made two remakes of ‘Halloween‘, which really didn’t live up to anything that resembled a horror film. But that was long ago and we like to forget such films ever took place. The original horror master and filmmaker John Carpenter, who made the original film is putting together a reincarnation of his own film and just announced that Danny McBride and David Gordon Green will be writing and directing the new film. As you probably already know, McBride and Green have a long lasting relationship, as they both worked on ‘Pineapple Express’, ‘Eastbound and Down’, and the recent ‘Vice Principals’.

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Conjuring 2’

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 12th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

157343_front

THE FILM

It seems like a ton of horror movies come out every year, and most times, they don’t live up to their potential. There are a handful of horror movies over the last decade that really satisfy us horror fans. Films like ‘The Babadook‘, ‘It Follows‘, and ‘The Conjuring‘ will still be talked about for years to come. One name in the horror genre, or at least in recent years is James Wan. This man burst onto the scene with ‘Saw‘, which was basically genre changing and spawned a ton of sequels. Wan also made a few other horror films, all testing the bounds and pushing us into a new horror direction, while still respecting his influences.

Film Review: ‘Don’t Breathe’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 26th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Stephen Lang stars in Screen Gems' horror-thriller DON'T BREATHE.

Fede Alvarez burst onto the scene a few years ago with his short film on YouTube called ‘Ataque de Pánico!‘ It was so well received and well done that a few weeks later, Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell, and Rob Tapert were calling him non-stop and even offered the Uruguayan filmmaker the chance to direct the remake of ‘The Evil Dead‘, which came out 2013 to rave reviews and fan appreciation for what it was. Since then, Fede has a few projects in the works coming up, as he is one of the top new filmmakers to watch in the horror genre.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Big-Trouble-in-Little-China-01

It’s finally happening! I’ve said that a few times this week, first the crossover plan for ‘He-Man‘ and ‘Thundercats‘ comic expansion made my day. This time it’s more comic book news, but like the coolest comic book news I could bring you! ‘Big Trouble In Little China‘ and ‘Escape From New York‘ comics will have a crossover edition!!! That’s right! Kurt Russell x 2! Doublemint Kurt Russell! How much Kurt Russell can you take before it’s too much Kurt Russell? I don’t know, but I’m willing to find out! Now, let’s take a minute to calm down, I expended more energy in the first sentences than I have all week! While I’m wheezing my heart rate back to normal, let’s get the rest of the story.

Film Review: ’10 Cloverfield Lane’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 10th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Screen-Shot-2016-01-15-at-7.53.37-AM-620x400

Has it really been 8 years since we saw New York destroyed in ‘Cloverfield‘, which was the “found footage” film produced by J.J. Abrams about a giant monster in NYC. That film was highly secretive before it came out, and nobody really knew anything about it, but it did well at the box office and there was a lot of talk of a sequel for a number of years. A couple of years ago, things started popping up on sites that said “Untitled J.J. Abrams” project, and as of a couple of months ago, we got the first glimpse of a trailer called ‘10 Cloverfield Lane‘, produced by Abrams again and directed by first time feature director Dan Tratchenberg (Portal short). The studio and Abrams himself said that this was not a direct sequel to 2008’s ‘Cloverfield‘, but it was a blood relative or spiritual successor to it, because where do you really go from the end of ‘Cloverfield‘?

We’ve known there was going to be an ‘Escape From New York‘ re-make for a while now. Fox is hoping to relaunch the property in the same way ‘Planet of the Apes‘ worked out and now we have an idea of how this film might come across now that we have a writer attached.

Celebrate your July 4th Holiday with these Films!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 3rd, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

the-sandlot-20th-anniversary-1157_rgb

In the midst of family and friend get-togethers, 37 pounds of BBQ spare ribs, ten gallons of creamy cool coleslaw, floating in a pool, and setting off fireworks, while listening to Neil Diamond’s ‘America’, I also like to enjoy “that one night game a year”, meaning I love to watch July 4th inspired films. I usually do a mini movie marathon of them with the usual food and beverages that go with each film. I’ve done this the past few years, with one year, taking a break to do an all John Carpenter/Kurt Russell marathon. That was a lot of fun. But, for those of you who want to enjoy a movie or three over the holiday weekend, but keep with the spirit of the 4th of July, here are a few suggestions to keep you patriotic.
