The Foreign Graphic Novels Behind 10 Films

The subway suddenly seems like a fun place to be after seeing Bong Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer, which arrived in theaters this weekend. His post-apocalyptic nightmare is based on the French graphic novel, Le Transperceneige, centered on a group of survivors trapped on a segregated train circling the earth. Hollywood has mined the comic book world for a never-ending series of superhero films, but the foreign graphic novel library is still a relatively new source for filmmakers. We’ve highlighted graphic novels hailing from other countries that became the basis for ten different films — including a few adaptations that might surprise you. … Read More

Your Guide to Surviving the Baby Boomer Clone Apocalypse

Stop this madness! You might think it’s all very well for some dentist somewhere, who apparently has one of John Lennon’s teeth, to use it to create some sort of clone of the late Beatles bandleader — but this is the thin end of the wedge. Remember Jurassic Park? If this idea isn’t stopped immediately, then we’re looking at something even worse than the end of the world: eternal life for the baby boomers! It starts with one Lennon, but before we know it, there’ll be armies of Jerry Garcias devouring everything before them, and hordes of John Bonhams prowling the streets in search of prey. … Read More

The Greatest Scream Queens in Horror Cinema

Horror cinema has never shied away from violence, gore, and sex, frequently depicting the genre’s female leads in a misogynistic fashion. Nudity is synonymous with fright flicks, but the women of horror have played a pivotal role in making these movies a success. The scream queen can simply be a victim or a shrieking damsel in distress waiting to be saved by her male co-star, but the role of the scream queen has evolved into something far more complex. In the spirit of the spookiest season of the year, we’ve highlighted 15 of the greatest scream queens of all time — those who fearlessly fought monsters and others whose blood-curdling vocals left a lasting impression. … Read More

Movies, Books, and Video Games Reimagined As Dr. Seuss Art

We’ve pointed you towards the ingenious work of Dr. Seuss-loving artist DrFaustusAU on a couple of previous occasions, but he’s simply outdone himself with his new Seuss-inspired take on The Evil Dead, titled The Evil Dead Are in My Shed! We were so taken by this one, in fact, that we started poking around the “Seussian Gallery” on his DeviantART site and found several additional mash-ups of Seuss and films, books, and video games.

How to Survive a George Romero Zombie Movie

Every genre has a beginning. Edgar Allan Poe is attributed with the first detective story. Bram Stoker translated vampire lore into literature. H.G. Wells sparked interest in the possibilities of time travel. When it comes to the zombie film as we now know it, George A. Romero — who turns 73 today — fathered the fundamental vocabulary of the genre with 1968′s Night of the Living Dead. His contributions to how the walking dead move, kill, and die, have helped propel the zombie to its current wave of widespread popularity.

Not just content to ignite the genre, Romero made five more zombie movies in his career; each film representing a vision of the zombie apocalypse that is uniquely his, and adds up to create an insular Romero universe. In honor of his birthday, we recently marathoned all his living dead movies and noticed consistencies that reveal what would help you survive if you found yourself in a Romero film. Should that ever happen, we’ve gathered together ten tips for you here to ensure you have a long and healthy life in the zombie wasteland. … Read More

Full Trailer for Zombie Disaster Tale ‘World War Z’ Arrives

Earlier this week, we weren’t fond of the glimpse Paramount gave us of zombie apocalypse tale, World War Z. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem that the full trailer, which we first caught sight of on Hollywood.com, is much better. As we said earlier, it’s definitely overblown and looks like it could be any random disaster porn flick — like Roland Emmerich’s 2012. The adaptation of Max Brooks’ zombie opus has seen its share of ups and downs. Brad Pitt’s attachment was an exciting announcement, but the good news was quickly made sour by reports of reshoots, drama on set, script issues, and more. Head past the break to let us know what you make of it. Do those zombies really act like the walking dead? Discuss. World War Z hits theaters June 21, 2013. … Read More
