Have You Ever Heard This Tune From ROBOCOP: THE MUSICAL?

This past weekend, I was fortunate enough to catch a screening of Paul Verhoeven’s original 1987 masterpiece ROBOCOP on the big screen. It’s untouchable. And it is a milestone for ’80s cinema. And apparently, unbeknownst to me, it once inspired a musical number? This dates way back to 2010 and features music, lyrics and video […]

Why Are Guns So Seldom Used in Horror Movies?

Have you ever noticed that killers in horror movies almost never use guns? They wield knives, machetes, axes, spears, harpoons, pitchforks, chainsaws, meathooks, finger-blades, chains, ropes, tree branches, human bones, sledgehammers, scythes, drills, scissors, cleavers, forks, corkscrews, nails, glass shards, skewers, razor wire, wood chippers, claws, teeth, talons, beaks, proboscises, acid, electrical wires, workout equipment, […]

8 Things We Learned From Scream Factory’s ROBOCOP 2 and 3 Blu-Ray Releases

The original ROBOCOP is a masterpiece. It’s also one of those movies that I saw at far too young an age that has forever been embedded into my brain, and which only made me want to see more R Rated movies. The many sequels, TV spin-offs, cartoons, comics and recent remake can never hold a candle […]

Stuart Gordon’s Unmade IRON MAN: When The “Masters Of Horror” Almost Made MARVEL Movies

As someone that grew up an avid reader of comic books, we are currently living in glorious times. Most of my favorites have all already graced the silver screen, and they’ll pretty much continue to do so for the next decade. But there was a time when it seemed like we’d never get a live-action […]

The HONEST TRAILER For JAWS Is Here!

We here at Blumhouse.com absolutely love what the fine fiends of Screen Junkies do on a regular basis. Their love of movies is evident in the content they produce, and even when they’re a bit snarky by nit-picking at movies with their “Honest Trailers” series, it’s done out of complete love! I mean, look – […]

Five of the WEAKEST Horror Movie Weaknesses

I think it’s fair to say that everybody has a weakness. (Mine is the STEP UP franchise. I love it. Don’t judge me.) And weaknesses are meant to be exploited, especially by screenwriters who need to come up with some way to defeat the evil masterminds inside of their movies. Vampires burn in the sunlight, […]

Check Out This Supercut Of Remakes Vs Originals, Side By Side

Ah, to remake or not to remake. Sadly this isn’t a dilemma for us to decide. Original stories have been reinterpreted since the beginning of film and will continue to be redone. But it’s always interesting to compare and contrast between different takes on the same material. Vimeo user Jaume R. Lloret thought the same […]

Is HARDCORE HENRY The Must-See Movie Of The Year?

Holy smokes! Besides these 2 trailers, I know next to nothing about HARDCORE HENRY or the people involved with the making of this movie. But as you’re about to see, it immediately has shot up to the top of my must-see list for the year. It looks part-ROBOCOP, part-CRANK and full-on lunacy. Before we delve […]
