Zombies, Spartans, And Owls: The Strange Journey Of Zack Snyder

November 9th, 2011 3:15pm EST
Zack Snyder and Gerard Butler
You awaken to a rabid 8 year old viciously chewing on your husband’s neck. A dark army, more than a million strong, bears down upon you and your kingdom. A masked man breaks in during the night and throws you out a window. A giant samurai statue engages you in battle, all the while feathery, cartoon owls fly around you. You are in the strange and violent world of Zack Snyder. Hang on; you’re in for a wild ride.

Zack Snyder, the director of the upcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel, has had the strangest start to a career of any director in recent memory. Dawn of the Dead, 300, Watchmen, Le...

31 Days Of Horror: 'The Walking Dead' (2010)

October 22nd, 2010 10:12am EDT
Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, future maniac
When it was announced that Frank Darabont would be heading up an adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s universally acclaimed comic book series The Walking Dead for AMC, it automatically set the bar unbelievably high. Kirkman’s comic is a lone light of quality in the overexposed zombie genre—bleak and emotionally intense. Darabont directed The Shawshank Redemption, the movie that everyone’s mother just loves, but also won some cult clout with his morbid adaptation of Stephen King’s The Mist. And of course, AMC is the reigning king of the mountain for prime-time drama (and movies you’ve seen a milli...

31 Days Of Horror: 'The Crazies' (2010)

October 7th, 2010 1:23pm EDT
The Crazies (2010)
Veteran horror director George Romero won a permanent place in the horror movie hall of fame for his continually growing Living Dead series, but aside from Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead, the bulk of the director’s work typically falls somewhere between middling and downright terrible. But while Romero has never been a consistent director, he has managed a perfect record of cramming blunt social commentary into just about everything he’s ever made.

Romero’s original version of The Crazies is a fever dream of government paranoia. There’s a lot of screaming and running around,...

Rainn Wilson, Liv Tyler, Ellen Page And Kevin Bacon In A Superhero movie!

May 4th, 2010 2:30pm EDT
Rainn Wilson
And the next superhero is… Rainn Wilson? The funnyman from The Office has landed a role in an all star comedy called Super. Writer/director James Gunn, who also wrote Scooby-Doo and the Dawn of the Dead remake, has a different sort of take on superheroes.

“It’s a story of a man who wants to be something more than human,” Gunn said. “He attempts to do that with varying levels of success. It’s Rainn Wilson, Kevin Bacon, Liv Tyler and Ellen Page. Rainn loses his wife, Liv Tyler, to this drug dealer and he decides to become a super hero (The Crimson Bolt) to fight what he perceives as a superv...

Zombie Flicks Rarely Disappoint: 5 Not-To-Miss Films

October 2nd, 2009 9:05am EDT
Zombieland
All zombies want to do is rise from the dead and eat people, with a preference for brains. This is the sole motivation of the flesh-eating creatures, and yet we can watch them do this over and over, whether it's in a campy funny way as in Shaun of the Dead or the brand new Woody Harrelson film Zombieland, or even in an artistic way as in 28 Days Later. The psyche of the zombie is utterly simple. There's something about rotting, walking corpses biting into the necks of their victims and/or eating entrails that is utterly entertaining.

Check out our five favorite zombie films:

Things Are Looking Grim For 'Nightmare On Elm Street' Remake

A Nightmare on Elm Street
Starpulse writer Kris King has a few choice words for Platinum Dunes, the horror production company behind the upcoming A Nightmare on Elm Street remake:

Dear Platinum Dunes,

First of all, nice work on your Friday the 13th reboot/sequel/remake - you managed to make a new Jason movie that neither disregarded its roots nor shot anyone into space on a straight-to-video budget.

With the hype surrounding Jason's return to Crystal Lake dissipating, news about your next bank run remake is pouring in. Having tackled Leatherface, 112 Ocean Avenue, and whatever the bad guy's name wa...

A Salute To The Head Explosion

September 23rd, 2008 11:40am EDT
Deadly Friend
When it comes to body parts that can explode, your head is ripe for the picking. Not only is it large and filled with goo, it perches atop of your shoulders begging for something to come along and smash it. Movie makers have known this fact for a long time. Nothing quite gets an audience going like a well placed exploding head. David Cronenberg's Scanners probably has the most oft-referenced scene, as it's one of the few mainstream horror films to give us a detailed and goopy exploding melon. Belloq's fate in Raiders of the Lost Ark even goes to show that Oscar winning directors aren't abov...

B-Movies: The Best Of The Worst

B-Movies The Best Of The Worst
Who's to say that the best movies are actually good? Sure, we've all seen some of the best movies ever made, but then again we've all seen some pretty bad movies too. After all, You Don't Mess With The Zohan made over $95 million since its release - that's a lot of people seeing one dumb movie.

However, sometimes a film can be so absolutely wretched that it comes full circle into being good again; at this point, you've entered the territory of the bad B-movie. B-movies walk a thin line between incredibly entertaining and downright unbearable. In order to get the most out of these movi...

Starpulse's Top 10 Most Horrifying Films

October 16th, 2007 11:36am EDT
Elm Street
Most people confuse horror and horrifying. Believe me, I’m a fan of the classics: Nightmare on Elm Street, Evil Dead, Dawn of the Dead, and so on. I enjoy my share of zombies, gore, masked villains and horny teenagers who never seem to learn that getting some means certain death.

However, the horror films that interest me the most are the ones that I can’t watch again or can’t watch very often. When something is truly horrifying, it should screw with you psychologically and make your skin crawl. Here are my "Top 10 Most Horrifying Films."
