The Blair Witch ProjectTHE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT is Old Enough To Drink!
By E.C. McMullen Jr.
Coming in on the birth of the Internet and the cusp of high speed Internet, THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT became one of the first Internet sensations.

Independent filmmakers marketed themselves and in doing so, beat out heavy studio contenders from Producer Stephen Spielberg's THE HAUNTING (with then A-List actors like Liam Neeson and Catherine Zeta-Jones. A young Owen Wilson also starred and was only beginning to make his mark.) to Producer George Lucas' first installment of his prequel trilogy, STAR WARS: The Phantom Menace (starring then A-List actors like Liam Neeson, Ewan McGregor, and Natalie Portman).

Yet even the then mighty Star Wars juggernaught wasn't as profitable as THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT.

Back in 1999, this was the take of the infant Feo Amante's Horror Thriller on THE BLAIR WITH PROJECT.

ROBOCOP is 33!
By E.C. McMullen Jr.
When people fondly reminisce over the Horror and Science Fiction movies of the 1980s, ROBOCOP is there, living in their top ten forever.

Writer and Director Paul Verhoven had other hits, but he never made the magic that was ROBOCOP. As the poor 2013 sequel proved, no one else has the ability to capture that lightening in a bottle either.

What made 1987's ROBOCOP so special?

According to the lawsuit, filed on Wednesday in California federal court, Irish Rover Entertainment says that "Stranger Things" copies a lot from "Totem," a screenplay written by Jeffrey Kennedy, including "plot, sequence, characters, theme, dialogue, mood, and setting, as well as copyrighted concept art."

After all, the Christopher Nolan thriller is going to need all the help it can get at the box office. One new report (via IndieWire) suggests the tentpole feature will need to gross at least $800 million at the box office before Warner Brothers makes a penny on the blockbuster.

The Bone Herder is an Afropunk/Afrofuturistic fantasy horror comic that puts black characters at the center of the story. Often people of color are left out of fantasy worlds or forced into stereotypical roles. I'm not alone in my desire to see settings that extend beyond the familiarity of typical western stories. This project originated from Gail Simone's Comic School, which gave me the confidence to go forward with my idea.

The Thing director John Carpenter remembers the 'inestimable genius' of Ennio Morricone
By Clark Collis
The late Ennio Morricone is best known for scoring Sergio Leone's Westerns and, later, for his work on such prestigious dramatic ventures as The Mission, The Untouchables, and Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight. But the composer, who died Monday at the age of 92, also worked on the movie which many regard as the greatest horror film of all time: director John Carpenter's 1982 alien invasion chiller The Thing.

We see that now with COVID-19 and we may see it with what happened in the U.S. congress on Wednesday.

In a bipartisan move (something rare in the early 21st Century), the House unanimously passed (something extremely rare in the early 21st Century) Sanctions against China.
