On the left, the classic poster for John Carpenter’s genre-making slasher film Halloween. On the right, the poster for Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween. It’s kind of clever and inspired, but also utterly disturbing and terrifying—a rare combination that I almost have to admire, to be honest.
He’s back to fix what he started. The director, co-writer, and composer of the original 1978 horror movie, John Carpenter, is returning to the franchise he created, and will executive produce the tenth Halloween film.
The essence of a character’s appearance is their profile. Head, face, shoulders—all the parts that get sculpted in a bust—should work together to be instantly recognizable. Artist Tom Whalen has now brought the majesty of the pop culture bust into two dimensions with these super cool art prints.
Multiple sources are reporting that Halloween is looking for a new studio. The long-running horror series has been under the banner of Dimension Films since 1995, starting with its sixth film, Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers, and topping off with the second Rob Zombie-directed remake in 2009.
Everyone should celebrate Halloween with graphic designers or expert Photoshoppers because they can turn silly group pictures on Halloween into a truly epic photo that looks more like a movie poster than something you’d be embarrassed to have on Facebook. Designers at Clearlink dressed up under an X-Men theme and then…
La noche del 31 de octubre, como si se tratara de una broma galáctica, pasó muy cerca de la Tierra un cometa que “tenía forma de calavera”. Como había asegurado la NASA, el cometa no supuso ningún peligro para la humanidad, y ahora han publicado imágenes detalladas en donde no parece una calavera en lo absoluto.
Halloween is the greatest holiday of the year. You get to dress up. It’s secular. And the candy’s free. Here are photos you shared from your Halloween experience.
Over millennia, wind and water have carved this 100-million-year-old granite into an eerie skull to glare at daring hikers in Joshua Tree National Park. The iconic Skull Rock is the perfect way to welcome the growing gloom of dusk on this All Hallows’ Eve.
In 1977, Star Wars hit theaters, bringing with it a major merchandizing campaign. Later that year, Halloween costumes based on the films were so popular that suppliers ran out of stock. Starwars.com takes a look at what happened that fall.
Un cometa, bautizado por la NASA como “Spooky” (fantasmal o escalofriante) pasará durante el día de Halloween muy cerca a la Tierra, aunque no supone ningún peligro para nosotros. Eso sí, las nuevas imágenes del cometa capturadas por el telescopio infrarrojo de la NASA nos dan un mejor vistazo, y parece una calavera…
Everyone knows you’re better off avoiding large cities in the event of a zombie pandemic. But if you’re going to take the risk of living in a city anyway, which one has the best chance of making it through the apocalypse?
I was never a pillowcase kid. Fill the sheets that I put my head on with the goods, risking an errant Mr. Goodbar besmirching my sleeping quarters? No thanks. Besides, a pillowcase would need to go in the wash eventually. My plastic pumpkin was a dedicated trick-or-treating device. And somehow, it managed to stay…
If you weren’t already having nightmares about the “Halloween asteroid” taking a detour and crashing into New York City, well, this space rock just got a little spookier. First off, Spooky isn’t an asteroid; according to NASA, it’s a dead comet. Worse! It looks like a haunted human skull.
We asked and you delivered. With over 3,000 comments on this year’s Scary Story contest, this year’s submitters brought their best—sharing hair-raising, spine-tingling tales that were so scary that certain Jezebel writers were forced to sleep with their lights on. These are the ten most terrifying.
There are two kinds of people in this world: those who have been planning their Halloween costume for ages, and those, like me, who scramble to buy some kind of hat day-of so that they can attend a party.
“There are no Halloween cocktails,” someone once said on Twitter, and they might be right. I tried to find a pumpkin one that didn’t taste like baby food and I failed—no pumpkin spice martini for you. Fear not, I wouldn’t leave you out in the cold: A Corpse Reviver is the perfect Halloween treat.
We’ve done the spookiest songs before, but this year we decided to be a bit more fiendish in our Halloweening. So treat yourself to twenty-five songs sung by, for, or about villains.
Trick-or-treat night draws close, and with it come the warnings about the dangers (hidden razor blades and saturated fats) lurking in your candy—all the while ignoring the real threat at hand: that house around the corner handing out full-size candy bars.
