    ‘Halloween’ Sequel Gets Official Trailer (Video)

    As beloved as the first movie is and remains after over 40 years, the Halloween franchise is not exactly one with a stellar track record. So it seems like both an artistically and commercially savvy move to retcon all of them out of existence, with a new sequel that picks up 40 years after the original left […]

  • ‘The Ghost Box': New Horror Anthology Edited by Patton Oswalt

    ‘The Ghost Box': New Horror Anthology Edited by Patton Oswalt

    People nowadays tend to focus on scary movies for Halloween, and even though I love scary movies as much as the next ghoul, but let’s remember to give it up to another important component of any well rounded Halloween: The short story.

    Starbucks Mystery Frappuccino Coming to Japan

    In North America we have the Zombie Frappuccino coming to celebrate the Halloween season.

I do understand Halloween, though, so the Starbucks Zombie Frappuccino that’s reported to be on the way makes perfect sense to me. The Starbucks Zombie Frappuccino is so […]

    ‘Scream': A New Michael Jackson Compilation is Coming Soon (Audio)

    I always kind of associate Michael Jackson with October, since his masterpiece Thriller is one of my favorite Halloween records – even if the title track is the only one on the album that has anything to do with Halloween. Evidently the people running the MJ estate are aware of this association, since the new […]
