Laika's Missing Link

Laika's Missing Link
Stop motion animation is one of the few film mediums that continually confounds the viewer. You don't know how many times I was in a press interview with the fine folks from LAIKA who had to explain that just about 99% of what you are seeing is NOT CGI. The hair blowing in the wind...the eye and mouth movement...all stop motion. Now LAIKA returns to bring more magic into our lives with their new feature film, Missing Link!

This April, meet Mr. Link: 8 feet tall, 630 lbs, and covered in fur, but don't let his appearance fool you... he is funny, sweet, and adorably literal, making him the world's most lovable legend at the heart of Missing Link, the globe-trotting family adventure from LAIKA. Tired of living a solitary life in the Pacific Northwest, Mr. Link recruits fearless explorer Sir Lionel Frost to guide him on a journey to find his long-lost relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La. Along with adventurer Adelina Fortnight, our fearless trio of explorers encounter more than their fair share of peril as they travel to the far reaches of the world to help their new friend. Through it all, the three learn that sometimes you can find a family in the places you least expect.

They growl, they claw...their eyes glow which is really the freakiest part. Well, it appears that Hollywood finally took notice that we love us some "this day in zombie history" battles and made a whole movie to satiate our hunger for undead soldiers. ...And it's from J.J.Abrams to boot...

"Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" Gets a Super Spooky Teaser Trailer

Netflix Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Poster
Look up the word "unafraid" in the modern comic book dictionary and there you will find, inexplicably, the kid-safe face of Archie Andrews, iconic and timeless figurehead of Archie Comics. To be concise, we aren't giving Archie himself this label, but the comic imprint itself, which has taken more chances in the last 10 years than I can count. From a zombie outbreak that threatened to devour all of Riverdale to Jughead's little werewolf mishap, and most memorable for me, the re-imagining of Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Gone was the squeaky clean, uber-white suburban facade, cast away in favor of a very Hammer Horror tone with EC Comics style frights around every corner. It was a monumental achievement, and now, I'm hoping it will be an equally intoxicating Netflix TV series!

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina tells the story of Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka), a half-witch half-mortal teenage girl. She’s been waiting her whole life for her 16th birthday, but something wicked this way comes, forcing her to choose between the path of light and the path of night. A Netflix Original Series from the makers of Riverdale. CAOS arrives October 26th.

Dark Horse to Publish Anthony Bourdain's Hungry Ghosts

Dark Horse to Publish Anthony Bourdain's Hungry Ghosts Graphic Novel
This October, Dark Horse Comics will publish the final graphic novel written by Anthony Bourdain before his untimely death in June, 2018.

ANTHONY BOURDAIN’S HUNGRY GHOSTS reunites the bestselling writer, chef, and award winning television host with accomplished co-writer Joel Rose, his friend and longtime collaborator, for a series of horror stories inspired by the popular Japanese Edo period parlour game of Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai. The graphic novel substitutes chefs in place of the traditional samurai, and transforms the classic stories of yokai, yorei, and obake by adding a common thread: food is central to each bone-chilling tale.  On a dark, eerie night a Russian oligarch dares a circle of international chefs to play the Samurai game of 100 Candles—where each storyteller blows out a candle after telling a terrifying tale of ghosts, demons and unspeakable beings, praying to survive the challenge.
