Florida’s Ft. Lauderdale SHOCK POP COMIC CON (running Feb. 13-15) already has a killer lineup for the convention, with everyone from Elvira, John Waters, Ralph Macchio, Fangoria EIC Chris Alexander and FRIDAY THE 13TH director Sean Cunningham, to what is (in my opinion) going to be the highlight for horror fans attending the event: the first ever official reunion […]

unnamed (4)

Rutger Hauer can do no wrong in my opinion, the man is great in everything. Everything from BLADE RUNNER,  all the way to HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN, he always adds a lot to every single film he’s in, so his upcoming return to Sci-Fi in RPG (out February 10th via Arc Entertainment) sounds like something to get […]
