If there’s one thing I like more than surprises, it’s zombies. So imagine my pleasure when browsing local movie times and being surprised by an unexpected new zombie flick titled Rammbock (aka Siege of the Dead). Now imagine my displeasure at wasting time on yet another recycled pooper of a zombie movie.
RiffTrax was born out of a television show from the ’90s called Mystery Science Theater 3000, known lovingly by fans as MST3K. It was a show which featured a host and two robots trapped in a spaceship called the Satellite of Love, and forced to watch really, really bad movies as part of a sadistic science experiment.

Last night, friend of Unwinnable Brian Taylor took to Twitter his desire to watch the Dark Shadows Revival Series. Unwinnable editor Peter Lang lobbied against such an act in favor of the (far superior) original program.

I’m a big fan of Michael Kupperman’s Tales Designed To Thrizzle. It’s one of the most absurd and hysterical comics I’ve read since my uncle gave me a stack of Steve Gerber Howard The Duck comics as a kid.

When most people think of Tales From The Crypt I’m sure they think of the zany Crypt Keeper puppet that frightened throngs of “kiddies” staying up past their bedtimes through the ’90s, or maybe they think of that Billy Zane movie that followed the memorable HBO show in which the aforementioned puppet hosted. However you “slice” it “boils and ghouls,” Tales has had many incarnations over the years after its initial horror comic existence that started the franchise. Before the series was brought to television, another EC Comics series curdled the blood of moviegoers. That film was Vault of Horror.
