Ape Canyon: A Cryptozoological Dramedy

Ape Canyon movie poster
When your life is at an impasse, head to the woods and look for Bigfoot. Joshua Land's Ape Canyon follows Cal Piker, a commercial artist on the verge of an implosion. He won’t say why, but he needs to find Ape Canyon, and he needs his big sister Samantha to save him from the increasingly reckless things he will do to get there. Jackson Trent (Bad Witch) and Anna Fagan (I Like Me) headline the zoological cryptid dramedy as two siblings who join a motley crew on an expedition to find one of the hairiest myths. Indie Rights will release Ape Canyon April 16 on a number of digital and cable platforms.

Some companies rent out a major space along the water in New York City to celebrate their upcoming toys and stuff the press to overflowing with rich foods and drinks with a kick. ...And then some companies hop online at midnight and say..."Hey buds..we've been working on Gargoyles action figures. Here's the first image. You may commence drooling now."

That company is NECA. Smooth mofos!

Mondo's GODZILLA '89 Premium Scale Statue

Mondo GODZILLA '89 PREMIUM SCALE STATUE
“Godzilla and Biollante aren't monsters. It's the unscrupulous scientists who create them that are monsters.” 

This quote from Dr. Shiragami in the awesome GODZILLA VS BIOLLANTE film blew my mind as a kid. 

The movie itself is awesome, and has one of Godzilla’s coolest-looking opponents. Biollante is Godzilla’s half-sister – and a half-plant - with the soul of a human girl thrown in for good measure. A monster with tentacles and a giant mouth full of teeth (that spews a glittery acid, no less), it was a really cool design. The movie was epic and was a great comeback for Godzilla.
