by Mister Sparta, guest reviewer Hello again, folks, and welcome to “Mister Sparta’s Creature Feature.” Let me start off this review with a great quote: “All Great Films, Without Exception, Contain An Important Element Of No Reason.” This quote was from the movie I’m about to review: Rubber. I’m going to start by telling you […]
by Jason Sparta, guest reviewer Hello folks and welcome back to Mister Sparta’s Creature Feature. Now, before I begin, let’s take a trip down horror memory lane at a director known for creating one of the most iconic characters in horror movie history, John Carpenter. When you think of John Carpenter, what movies come to mind? Big Trouble […]
by Mister Sparta, guest reviewer Hello, everyone, and welcome to the latest edition of Mister Sparta’s Creature Feature. This time around I’m going to touch on a subject close to my heart: Werewolves. I find the mythos of lycanthropy very fascinating, yet as far as media goes, I find only rare few werewolf movies that I find […]
by Mister Sparta, guest reviewer Hello, folks, and welcome to the first (and hopefully not the last) edition of Mister Sparta’s Creature Feature. Tonight’s selection: Stake Land.

He stays quiet, mercifully. It’s very rare the commotion of so many bodies in one room during a film bothers me, I’ve […]
by Mike Favila, Editor This weekend, I attended the Baltimore Comic-Con with my family and local friends. Billed as ‘America’s Greatest Comic Book Convention’, it’s pretty much the last safe haven for comic creators. Whether you’re an writer, penciller, inker or colorist, you won’t be edged out of a booth by some girl who was on […]
And that’s really what the convention was about for me. Yes, my experience was wholly atypical, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Because, for me, Dragon Con was about the people. It was about sharing the experience, sharing the passion for a story and the love of a character (or twelve). In the course of four days, I made amazing friends, got to listen to talented people share their passions and experiences and insights into their jobs, and created memories I’ll treasure for years to come.
by Mab, Mary Anne Butler, Reporter/Photographer I will totally admit my opinion of SDCC has changed over the last two years. Especially this year. I don’t know how many of you noticed, but this was the first time in what, six years, there were ZERO big Twilight related panels. I firmly believe this is why […]
(featured here are Noah Wyle, Doug Jones, and Valerie Perez) by Mary Anne Butler, Reporter/Photographer This year seems to be having fun pushing me out of my comfort zones.
