It’s the season of spooks and monsters, and no one loves a good spook or monster than Guillermo Del Toro. But the director recently shared some thoughts on what makes the monstrous so fascinating to people, and his answer was suitably chilling.
The Addams Family got a trio of popular 1990s movies (and a really great pinball game). So it’s time for that other spooky TV family to have a revival. After a false start a few years back, the Munsters are finally returning to the small screen—and 1313 Mockingbird Lane is apparently moving zip codes.
Tom Cruise’s new film, The Mummy, is essentially a monster movie Iron Man; it’s the first film in Universal’s new cinematic universe of monsters, which will include Frankenstein, the Invisible Man, and other horrors from the studio’s rich, historic past. Here’s the breakdown of everything The Mummy can tell us about…
All teenagers go through the same sort of experiences in life—high school woes, making friends, getting into schoolyard scraps. But when you’re a monster teen attending a human school, things can be a little different, as this beautiful animated short shows.
The idea for Colossal sounds exactly that: “colossal.” A woman in the US can sometimes, when she’s drunk and in the right place, become a giant monster in Seoul, South Korea. Add to that Oscar-winning actress Anne Hathaway, and it sounds like a Hollywood blockbuster. But that’s not what Colossal is at all.
Kong: Skull Island is out March 10, the latest showcase for one of cinema’s oldest and most reliable icons. Everyone knows about the 1933 original film, and the 2005 remake isn’t too distant of a memory. But what else has Hollywood’s hairiest superstar spent the last 84 years doing? We take a look back.
The costumes in The Great Wall are, like, really beautiful. Think ancient Chinese Power Rangers. Plus, some of the action is innovative and exciting. Beyond that, though, there really isn’t much positive to say about Matt Damon’s very, very bad bilingual monster movie.
Bong Joon-Ho came to the world’s attention with his wonderful 2007 monster movie The Host. The director has followed up his hit adaptation of Snowpiercer with a return to the genre in Okja, but it sounds like it’s going to be quite a different take on the monster film.
Dungeons & Dragons has historically used attractive monsters, and especially of the female persuasion, to appeal to potential players. Busty demons and lithe wood maidens populated its source material, namely its Monster Manual, throughout the last 40 years.
“Welcome to a new world of Gods and Monsters.” That’s the tagline for The Mummy, the 2017 Tom Cruise movie which just released its first trailer, and the statement is true in more ways than one. If all goes according to plan, The Mummy will be the first film in a new shared cinematic world filled with Universal…
On her 10th birthday, a curious girl sneaks out of the bunker where she’s spent her entire life, intent on seeing the fearsome creatures that she’s been told roam the world above ground. What she finds is a shocker, and though you might see the first twist coming, nothing will prepare you for the second one.
When it comes to seasonal novelty songs, few have reached the level of dominance achieved by “Monster Mash.” Unlike, say, “Jingle Bells,” The Mash (as I will refer to it throughout this post) is now basically synonymous with its associated holiday, becoming the first and maybe only Halloween song readily named by the…
You might think that Halloween stops being fun as soon as the neighbors call you out for being too old to trick-or-treat. But one day, when you have a house of your own, you realize that turning your quaint homestead into a terrifying haunted house makes Halloween infinitely more enjoyable.
In Colossal, Anne Hathaway plays an alcoholic underachiever who is forced to move back to her rural hometown. There, she realizes if she stands in a certain place at a certain time, a massive kaiju that mimics her movements spawns in the city of Seoul, South Korea. Yes, you read that right.
Diamond miners in the remote Siberian town of Udachny received quite a shock this week, when instead of pulling shiny rocks from the sand they unearthed a bizarre mummified creature that looks more than a little like the escaped spawn of that three-jawed dog monster in The Thing. Is anything ever normal in Siberia?
Chris Evans has achieved superstar status thanks to his many turns as Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but he’s not afraid of treading darker water. He’s also appeared in movies like Snowpiercer and Sunshine, which makes the news that he may play a version of Dr. Jekyll not entirely surprising.
The deep sea is home to creatures that are sort of normal but then have some sick twist that make them monstrous and so creepy you want to peel your skin off. A squid can’t be just a squid, it has to be a giant squid the size of a school bus. A shark can’t just be a shark, it has to be a goblin shark with a jaw that…
For the past six years, artist Alex Pardee has been revisiting his favorite monster movies. He’d watch them, sketch them, and watercolor them—and the result is this insane poster, featuring 185 different movie monsters all in one place.
Humanity getting on your nerves? We hear you. Sometimes the best thing to do is to just hit the couch and watch a movie about nature taking its revenge on homo sapiens. But which film to watch? This list has you covered, broken down by what animal you’d most like to see dominating the dominant species on the planet.
