Star Wars Episode VII: The Hope That It Doesn't Suck 

The announcement of the start of production for the newest “Star Wars” film - Episode VII: “The Return of the Milkable Disney Cash Cow - has filled me with mixed emotions. I grew up with the original Star Wars trilogy. I remember my mom taking me to see the first film at a small movie theater in Frankfort, Kentucky when I was just seven. I’d been particularly good and she said that we could stay and watch it twice if I enjoyed it. Needless to say my younger self didn’t just enjoy it, I was beside myself with glee from it and looking back I appreciate her staying to see it again at the very next show, even more now than I did then.

B Movie Man Contributing
Writer- Eric Brooks- takes a look
at the 2015 Lexington Comic and
Toy Convention!
Four years ago a new convention sprung up in Lexington that provided a venue for geeks in Kentucky and beyond to fly their flags proudly. That convention attracted about 4,000 people in its first year and last year topped 19,000. Clearly it has found fertile ground in Lexington in which to plant the geek flag. This year, the Lexington Comic and Toy Convention returned March 13-15 and was looking to be bigger and better than ever.

It's been a great year for horror in the gaming world. Between Outlast, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, The Evil Within, and P.T, masochistic gamers everywhere are discovering just how wonderfully sadistic game developers can be. However, between all the gore, suspense, mystery, and pants-shitting, there is only one game this year that's delivers shivers of sheer terror, and nerdy ecstasy. That game, is Alien Isolation...

The Horror Film Survival Crate-

What You Need To Make It To The Credits!

Halloween is coming up. Samhain, the time when the barriers between our world and the world of the dead are the thinnest. In other words, it’s my favorite time of year! I love this season with all of its strange traditions and interesting customs. It’s also a great time to watch scary movies! Whether they are Universal horror classics like “Dracula”, Hammer horror like “The Curse of the Wolfman” or something more modern like “Trick’r Treat”, it’s hard to go wrong with a good scary movie for the scariest of seasons.

With horror films in mind, B-Movie Man accepted a challenge from the folks at Man Crates. They asked me what I thought should go in a crate designed to help you survive a horror film? A simple question, but one that leads to another, more important question. What horror film would you need to survive?

In 2013, Sony released a new game exclusively for the PS3 system. On the surface “The Last of Us” was a fairly standard “post-apocalypse-infected-humans-mission based shooter” like many before it. However, the game stood out, not so much because of its graphics, which were extremely good, or for the game play itself, which was challenging and enjoyable, but again similar to other entries in the genre. What made “The Last of Us” a truly unique and outstanding gaming experience was the story. Now the folks at Naughty Dog Games who made the original have released a supplemental downloadable game addition called
“The Last of Us: Left Behind”

One of my favorite things to do each year at Halloween is take in some of the haunted attractions. I love a good scare as much as the next person and a Haunt can fit the bill nicely. This year I decided to go for more bang for my buck and less traveling by giving The Asylum Haunted Scream Park a go. I’d first learned about The Asylum from a documentary film called “Monsters Wanted” which followed Richard Teachout and Janelle Nash as they sank their life’s savings and a lot of hopes and dreams into creating not just one ‘haunted house’ but four distinct attractions at one location. After seeing the blood, sweat and tears that they put into getting the park up and going, I knew it would be one I had to visit.

The apocalypse makes for some good gaming. Alien invasion, zombie outbreaks, what have you - they create the perfect environment for a lone protagonist, or band of protagonists in some cases, struggling to cross a ruined landscape to reach some goal to survive, and maybe even defeating the menace that destroyed the land. Naughty Dog Games, in conjunction with Sony, have taken that genre one step further with their recently released

“The Last of Us”.

Ebert and me… or How Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel got me into horror movies.

I was saddened to hear about the passing of Roger Ebert. He was more than a film critic to many people and learning about his death made me stop and think about my own love of films... especially horror and how he and his long time partner Gene Siskel helped shape my taste in film before I even knew I had one.
