  • [Video] Clips from Other Movies Make for a Much Better ‘Venom’ Trailer
    The first teaser trailer for the Tom Hardy-starring Venom, released earlier this month, certainly didn’t do much to increase or even maintain fan interest in the film.

  • [Exclusive] “Comic Book Men” Star Bryan Johnson Talks ‘Vulgar 2’ and Upcoming Horror Comics
    Bryan Johnson’s name may not be one of the most recognizable in the horror genre, but his work in the genre has been truly unforgettable.
