Check out my look at the new Phantasm box set that came out today
Directed by F. Javier Gutiérrez WOw its been a long time since we saw one of these movies and now here it is, its better than part two I will say that lol, I know that’s not saying much but it is,. I think they try and do a good job recapturing the spooky gothic feel of the first movie. This film does have its problems and they expand on the back story of Samara a bit to much in this giving her a family and more sympathy and cant just seem to keep her a bad little girl who likes to kill people. It felt a little weird to have Johnny Galeki from the Big Bang Theory running around acting like a d bag professor I like the film but its not great, go watch the original Japanese films….sooo much better.
I never thought I would find a movie from a comedy duo of Key & Peele to be so funny and ever though there are plenty of gags in the movie, this is a straight up horror movie. Directed written and produced by Jordan Peele and thru Blum House studios which is making waves in the horror community similar to Lions gate did years ago. The story follows Chris Washington played by Daniel Kaluuya goes to his girlfriends parents house for the weekend to meet them and discovers the other people there of color are acting like zombies most of the time. He cant figure it out till his TSA buddy tries to look into the disappearance of a track star from a few months back. When you do discover whats going on it puts a new meaning to the phrase WHITE PEOPLE BE CRAZY
Kong Skull Island
Giant Monkey goes SMASH!!!! Yup that sums up the movie. AND IT FUCKING AWESOME. The US has had three Major Monster Movies and they have been hit or miss, Pacific Rim great film loved by fans and critics but huge disappointment at the box office. Godzilla (btw stay till the end credits all I’m going to say) was good and a great special effects film with a decent story, but barely had the big G in it. I love how King is in every part of this movie and the human character are not dll and boring like they are in Godzilla. You could also call this the Guide to the Marvel Universe with Tom Hiddleston ( Loki) Bree Larson ( Captain Marvel) and Samual L Jackson ( Nick Fury) John C Reilly (Nova Corps Commander) being in Marvel films. Go check this film out its a great action movie and one of the best movies of the year so far.

Hey Radio of Horror creeps! Jess-O-Lantern here! I want to take a moment to talk about a truly talented horror/FX make-up artist, and all around lovely lady, the terrifying Teri Griffin!

As well as a prop maker who has worked for multiple prop shops such as Dapper Cadaver.
I had a few questions for Teri on her work, inspirations, and current/upcoming projects!
When did you know you had a passion for Horror?
“I knew since I was young and watching sci-if films with my father I had a passion for horror. Horror, Halloween, anything spooky always gave me an excitement that no other thing could. I was so intrigued by monsters and characters like Elvira and TV shows like The Munsters. I did all my school career projects on Hollywood & Horror when I could. I even remember a final where I included a scene from ‘Beetlejuice’ in my presentation. So, it has always been there.”
What inspired you to start doing Horror Make-up?
“Since elementary school I talked about moving to Hollywood and working in film and horror. I threw a huge Halloween party at my parents house in 2003 and I said to myself ‘I want this every day’, I wanted the things that are celebrated in October to be celebrated in my life 365 and I knew if I got into Horror Make-up and film and monsters, I could make that a reality. I wanted to mix my two favorite things, Horror/Halloween & Film-Horror. Make-up seemed like the perfect solution.”
Tell us about “Sea Griffin Creations & Productions”!
“In 2010 I met Carson Griffin, and we both shared a huge passion for film and horror. Late 2010 we began writing our first film “Zombeef.” After that we began working together doing everything from FX, blood, filming, art, editing, writing, and even stop motion.
We decided to create “Sea Griffin Creations and Productions” to showcase all of our projects. We have been working together now for 7 years and we are very proud of what we have accomplished and only plan to keep going and taking things further!”
What are your most recent projects?
“Right now we’re working on a few new short films that we’re writing and directing. We’re still working on the development of “The Real Ghoulwives of Los Angeles”
Tonight on the show Jess-O-Lantern and I discuss XMAS Horror movies and other awesome non traditional Holiday films and we record her interview which will be played next week. Music tonight will be from DIE HARD
