Kenny interviewed Gruesome’s own Doc Rotten for Geeks & Ghosts’ report on the convention. They chatted about […]

“Downrange” (2018): Ryuhei Kitamura Returns To Chill and Thrill Genre Fans

Ryuhei Kitamura is a fascinating and exciting director. For me, it all started with Versus (2000) which immediately impressed the hell out of me.

Eleven Arts is set to bring his latest horror classic Downrange to hungry audiences in 2018. Described in the press release as “a minimalist thriller with maximum tension,” we cannot wait to get our […]

Although I never had the opportunity to work one on one with […]

First Trailer For ‘Mr. Mercedes Pulls In

Some of Stephen Kings best work of the last few years has been his Bill Hodges trilogy of which Mr. Mercedes was the first tome in the collection.

Premiering on Aug. 9th – the channel has supplied the following synopsis: “From […]
