[IFH] Turn the lights down and the volume up for NIGHTMARE the VHS Board Game


August 25, 2016    Mike Vanderbilt

One of the highlights of last weekend’s BRUCE CAMPBELL HORROR FILM FESTIVAL was Jackson Stewart’s directorial debut, BEYOND THE GATES. BEYOND THE GATES features a possessed VHS board game of the same name that two brothers must defeat in order to save their father’s soul. The stakes certainly weren’t that…

[THE INTERNET’S FINEST HOUR] TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE (1986)


August 11, 2016    Mike Vanderbilt

    This week marked thirty years since the Autobots and Decepticons blasted their way onto the silver screen for the first time. TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE was a box-office bomb, grossing only $5,849,647 upon its release in 1986 which is surprising as the syndicated television series had wrapped up that…

[THE INTERNET’S FINEST HOUR] A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 4’S DREAM-BATTLE TRAINING MONTAGE


July 28, 2016    Mike Vanderbilt

    A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 4: THE DREAM MASTER shouldn’t work as well as it does. The script by Oscar-winning screenwriter Brian Helgeland was completed in seven days, as a release date for the film had already been set and was for the most part simply used as…

[THE INTERNET’S FINEST HOUR] VINCENT PRICE RIDES A ROLLER-COASTER!


June 30, 2016    Mike Vanderbilt

      Fact: You are not going to hear anything more delightful today than Vincent Prince saying “rolly coaster.”   AMERICA SCREAMS is not, as the title may imply, an AIP-produced shocker featuring Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee hopping across the pond to terrorize some hip, young, swingers in…

May 13, 2016    Mike Vanderbilt

    In these days of market saturation where a five second teaser is run for the two-minute trailer that will be released before the full red band trailer is released (and every online outlet runs a story on it), it’s hard to imagine there was a time when if…

April 9, 2016    Mike Vanderbilt

    As time travel in film has taught us, altering singular events can change the course course of history. In one alternate timeline, it was Cheap Trick who became honors students of Vince Lombardi High School in Roger Corman’s 1979 cult classic ROCK & ROLL HIGH SCHOOL, and not The…

    Growing up, the 20th Century Fox Fanfare elicited a Pavlovian response from me: STAR WARS is about to start.     I’ve written before that STAR WARS was the closest thing the Vanderbilt household had to religion; we never made it to Sunday mass, but I watched the original…

    The Internet is a vast landscape filled with weird, wild, content. Indie horror’s new “it girl” Lauren Ashley Carter (DARLING, POD, THE MIND’S EYE, JUG FACE) has been reading Jackie Chan’s autobiography, I AM JACKIE CHAN: MY LIFE IN ACTION aloud and posting the chapters to her SoundCloud account….
