Dead By Daylight Takes On Freddy Krueger

If you are a fan of horror and horror video games, you are no stranger to Dead by Daylight! Last year around this time, we were treated to the arrival of Michael Myers and his final girl, Laurie Strode, complete with a hellish half-acre of Haddonfield. Some weeks back, Leatherface joined the hunt. Now the Springwood Slasher shreds that delicate boundary between dreams and waking, turning an already horrific game into the stuff of nightmares.

'90s kids hoping to relive their childhood can now do so in full glory with the return of everyone’s favorite digital pet, Tamagotchi®!

This year marks the 20th Anniversary of Tamagotchi in the United States and to memorialize the occasion, Bandai America is releasing a smaller version of the device in limited quantities on November 5, 2017. Totally Awesome!

Awakening and evoking nostalgic feelings from the mid-to-late '90s, this smaller Tamagotchi device features the familiar egg shape, pixelated LCD charm, and, of course, the recurrent need for tender-loving-care that endeared fans in 1997 when it was first released! Like the original Tamagotchi device, the mini Tamagotchi includes six different shell designs from the initial Japanese launch and each one includes six characters. To pay homage to fans, the mini Tamagotchi will also feature the iconic packaging design of the original Tamagotchi device. Now, both original fans and new fans can obsess over caring for their Tamagotchi character, and as they do the character will uniquely grow and develop.

2017 Holiday Geekbook: Marvel: Spider-Man 1000 Dot-To-Dot Book

Marvel: Spider-Man 1000 Dot-To-Dot Book reviewed by Evelynn Faith Moon

I was pretty pumped to be given this book to play with, like all good comic book geeks I would LOVE to be as gifted as the artists I read on the page, so a dot to dot book seems like one avenue to fulfil my fantasy of creating a Marvel masterpiece. I am a big fan of your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man and Thomas Pavitte is known for creating a dot to dot version of the Mona Lisa, which is no small feat. I was excited to dive in and see what he did with some familiar faces.

I feel like an idiot now that I’m looking at the cover again it literally says “Spider Man 1000”, so that should have been my first clue as to how many dots I was in store for.

NYCC 2017: Pumpkinhead Descends on Dynamite Entertainment

Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce their new agreement with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures to develop original comic book projects based on the cult classic Pumpkinhead film franchise. The ever-talented Cullen Bunn (Deadpool, Micronauts, Monsters Unleashed) has been tapped to serve as writer for the terrifying horror tale, slated to hit shelves in February 2018. 

In the original Pumpkinhead film, a group of teenagers inadvertently kill a young boy in rural Appalachia, and his father seeks the powers of a backwoods witch to bring the child back to life. Instead, she invokes The Pumpkinhead - a monstrously clawed demon which, once reborn, answers only to Harley's bloodlust. As the creature wreaks its slow, unspeakable tortures on the teens, Harley confronts a horrifying secret about his connection to the beast - and realizes that he must find a way to stop its deadly mission before he becomes one with the creature forever. A "vivid, stylish, atmospheric" film as described by The Hollywood Reporter, the Pumpkinhead film features a hypnotic, heart-rending performance by Lance Henriksen and the directorial vision of special effects master Stan Winston, and spawned three sequels.
