Cinema’s ‘Golden Age of Horror’ – it was a time when silent silver-screen terrors petrified audiences with unrelenting fear. While filmmaking technology and technique have changed much since the 1920s, many of those classic films are far from forgotten – and few-to-none are more remembered than the 1925 Phantom of the Opera, starring the legendary Lon Chaney.
The Phantom of the Opera, based on Gaston Leroux’s classic novel, was a box-office hit for Universal back in the day and has since sparked a series of remakes, re-interpretations, and re-imaginings for close to a century after its release. Even so, none can compare to the latest iteration of Chaney’s masterwork: a sound ‘talkie’ version of the silent film, digitally re-mastered in 3D!
To get the monstrous details on this upcoming release, we were fortunate enough to speak with Terror Inc. Films, who, with Shadowland Productions are behind this phan-tastic project.

Sadly, the best poster for Captain America: The First Avenger, won't be the one featured on theater walls. This retro-style poster depicts the Star-Spangled Avenger giving Hitler the ol' right hook. However, a limited number of these posters have been printed (100 in total) and will be given away to audience members at the LA Times Hero Complex Film Festival.
From June 1966 to April 1971, Dark Shadows aired on ABC television. The show may have had a rocky start and questionable ratings, but with the introduction of Barnabas Collins, the show's feature vampire, around the 200th episode, Dark Shadows became a cult hit. Unlike many soap operas, Dark Shadows was able to transcend the realm of television and was featured in two feature-length theatrical films, a series of novels, magazines, and comic books.

Plastic model kits of horror, sci-fi, and fantasy characters have been a huge hit ever since Aurora released their first line of monster kits back in the early 1960s. This trend continued through the late-70s until the garage kit boom happened in the mid-80s to the late-90s, where many newer model kits were being made of vinyl and resin instead of plastic. Nevertheless, plastic models continued to thrive, with companies like Revell, Monogram, and Polar Lights reproducing some of Aurora's most popular kits.
Sadly, today many of those companies are either out of business or no longer manufacture franchise-based re-releases. Even so, a new company has stepped forward to fill the void: Moebius Models.
Godzilla may have originated in Japan back in 1954, but today he's a global icon. The King of the Monsters has conquered nearly every form of entertainment known to exist, having appeared in 28 Toho Studios films, an American adaptation (a remake is currently in the works), Marvel, Dark Horse, and IDW have each played host to a Godzilla comic series, and the Big-G has starred in both a Hanna-Barbera cartoon and another animated series based-on the 1998 American film. Beyond that, Godzilla has claimed his place in the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest running film series by a single film-studio, received an MTV lifetime achievement award in 1996, and was given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2004.
So prepare yourself as we look back at Godzilla's impressive history and examine his Top 10 Battles! Get ready to crumble!!
