Free Comic Book Day has arrived, boys and girls, and if you’re still not sure which books you want enveloped in your greedy little mitts, keep on reading…
Leave it to Guillermo De Toro to have created a movie so full of vivid imagery that it will forever be engrained in my brain. The movie I am referring to: Pan’s Labyrinth. This movie is so full of stunning pictures, imaginative creatures, and one monster in it know as “The Pale Man” will forever terrorize my nightmares as one of the most horrific creatures of all time.
I was, once upon a time, a Simpsons fanatic. In face, half of the Brotherhood routinely gather and revisit classic episodes. And even in the decade or so since I’ve stopped watching religiously, I try and make a point of watching the Treehouse of Horror specials. They’re non-canonical short form stories, and I find they turn out a lot better than the recent episodes I’ve seen.
And this year’s episode is opening up with a killer couch gag designed by Mr. Guillermo Del Toro! Check it out!
Keep your eyes peeled for all sorts of little horror genre Easter Eggs. Are you a fan of Del Toro’s catalog of films? Godzilla? The Phantom of the Opera? The Phantom of the *Paradise*? Classic Universal monsters? Lovecraft? George Romero? Godzilla? Ray Harryhausen? Alfred Hitchcock? Stephen King? Tod Browning? Pretty much any notable work of science fiction horror? Then definitely give this a watch. There’s even a cameo by everyone’s favorite mesmeric amphibian, HypnoToad!

Happy Saturday Evil Geeks! If you’re anything like me, then you’ve been waiting all summer long for a certain blockbuster to hit. Sure it’s been a pretty geeky Summer at the box office with Man of Steel and Iron Man 3 hitting, but as much as I love comics and comic movies, there’s been one movie that I just have absolutely been dying to see and that is Guillermo Del Toro’s giant monsters battling giant robots epic Pacific Rim. As a kid growing up not too far enough away from New York City that we didn’t get their channels, I spent a lot of Saturday afternoon’s plopped down in front of the TV watching old Godzilla and Gamera flicks on WPIX’s Morgus Movie. Every show was hosted by the mad scientist Dr. Morgus, who would introduce the movies and do skits set in his laboratory for commercial bumpers. I was raised on a steady diet of 60’s and 70’s monster movies because of that show and to this day I still have a soft spot in my movie loving heart for cheesy movies featuring dudes in rubber suits fighting each other. So how does Pacific Rim hold up to someone who’s a lover of Godzilla classics? Read on and find out!
