Top 10 Best Horror Anime Titles

With less than a week away from Halloween, what better time is there to catch up on some of your favorite horror flicks! Of course, a number of die-hard Halloween fans probably started their horror film viewings closer to the beginning of the month. Aside from the countless horror films available, there's also more than enough horror sub-genres (classic, Gothic, slasher, etc) to keep a die-hard viewer occupied for far longer than just the month of October...yet, for those looking for something a little different, they need look no further than the realm of anime, which has spawned more than its fair share of impressive horror tales.

Custom Collectibles: The Crimson Ghost

The Crimson Ghost first entered the realm of popular culture way back in 1946 when The Crimson Ghost cliffhanger serial made its way into theaters. While characters from other serials of the era have faded into obscurity, the Crimson Ghost has remained ever-present in the public eye throughout the years. For one, the character has become the mascot for the punk band, The Misfits, appearing on their album covers, t-shirts, and miscellaneous merchandise. Not only that, but The Crimson Ghost was one of the few serials to be colorized in the 1990s! And if that's not enough, fans of the classic Lone Ranger TV show will spot the Lone Ranger himself, Clayton Moore, as one of the Crimson Ghost's villainous henchmen in the serial.

So, what better way to honor the enduring legacy of The Crimson Ghost than for a custom display. Hobbyist and customizer, Davey Horror has set his sights this month on the blood-red shrouded specter.

Foreign Movie Posters of John Carpenter's Halloween

Nowadays studios market their films via commercials, billboards, heinous helpings of marketing tie-ins, and annoying internet pop-up ads. Millions of dollars are spent just to get a person into the theater. Believe it or not, there was a time when a film's movie poster was enough to get people in a theater's seats. For that reason many studios were very creative with their posters - turning them into an art form all their own. When a movie was released internationally the art/style of the poster was typically changed to better suit a foreign audience. 

Here we look at some of the amazing posters that John Carpenter's Halloween received when it was released overseas.

Spotlight on Saturday Morning Cartoons: Swamp Thing

The late '80s/early '90s were filled with some strange cartoons based on rather mature films. For example, both Rambo and Robocop received their own Saturday morning adaptations. Swamp Thing may not have been an R-Rated film-turned-cartoon (the swamp dwelling hero stemmed from DC Comics) but the comic it was based on wasn't kids fare either. In fact, the Swamp Thing comic was one of the first titles to drop the 'Comics Code Authority' logo on the cover due to the graphic content.

Fans of the Transformers Generation 1 cartoon have reason to rejoice! Later this fall, the robotic ninja assassin, Nightbird will be springing into the hands of die-hard collectors.
