TRAIN TO BUSAN PRESENTS: PENINSULA Trailer is INSANE

Well Go Entertainment Train to Busan Presents Peninsula Movie Poster
Train To Busan is hailed far and wide as one of the best zombie films created to date, and for good reason. While some horror fans moan they suffer from zombie fatigue, Busan showed that simply striving to make a great movie can catapult the genre out of any perceived doldrums. Excellent writing and character development bolstered by superb casting and actor charisma makes this title stand out. Die hard horror fans will be quick to point out the Asian style of body acting helps to make nearly every zombie unique and horrifying while the film makers spin witchcraft around the physics of mass body movement, ending the debate once and for all: FAST ZOMBIES ARE MONSTROUS!!

Bring Your Heroes To Work Day: Kevin Grevioux

Kevin Grevioux


Today, amid the sadness and chaos, I'd like to take a moment to celebrate a good man who always has a smile for you when you meet him...no matter how beat up he is from Comic-Con! Kevin Grevioux may be best known as the massive werewolf RAZE from Underworld, but over the years, I've come to know him as a highly creative individual challenging artists and writers to spark life into their own worlds. His voice is essential and necessary in a world that seems to value recreating and rebooting an already successful model to make a quick dime. Take a look at Kevin's most current comic work, among which, one title can be found at select Walmart stores!
