30 Days of Hellraiser: Hellraiser

I’ll say it out front. Hellraiser lives up to its reputation. It also holds up very well, something which can’t be said for a ton of mid-80’s horror films. Clive Barker’s psychosexually violent tale of lust, sadomasochism, and infidelity is as effective in today’s torture-porn saturated landscape as it was upon its release in 1987 […]…

G&G Webcomic Pick: Necropolis

The internet has been drooling over Jake Wyatt’s Necropolis since before it was even launched at the end of last month, and for very good reason.   Wyatt has done some noteworthy art in the past, but I think it was the teaser pages for Necropolis –released over the course of a few months– that […]…

Godzilla 2014 May Not Suck

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in Film, Moving Pictures

As we are all aware, there’s a new, American-made Godzilla film coming in 2014. For a long time I thought “Eeeeew more American Godzilla WTF.” but the new trailer that was just released today made me waver. We see soldiers parachuting with flares, lots of buildings crumbling and things exploding, a girl looking scared and […]


That South Doesn’t Live Here Anymore

Written by Ian Williams on . Posted in Moving Pictures, TV

At some point, certain television shows become signifiers of your age. It just kind of happens. Today’s “Breaking Bad” becomes tomorrow’s “Murder She Wrote” or “Lawrence Welk Show”: a thing to be enjoyed ironically, if at all, and most probably relegated to the realm of laughably uncool by mere virtue of its remaining viewer demographic.
