The good news is, your date is here. The bad news is, he’s dead–and Scream Factory’s Collector’s Edition reissue of Night of the Creeps has been bumped back a month. Originally slated to hit online and brick and mortar retailers beginning May 28th, fans of Fred Dekker’s seminal horror classic must now wait until June 25th. While we wait, pass the time by revisiting the synopsis and trailer below, followed by a list of the Collector’s Edition special features. Continue here

It’s not always the scares that make our favorite horror movies stand out, but scenes or sequences that bring quotable lines of dialogue, thrilling action, uplifting triumph, and breathtaking visuals that remind us why we love movies in the first place. Moments that become so iconic that they transcend genre entirely and enter the ranks of pop culture phenomena. These 75 horror movie moments have forever carved out a place in cinematic history, proving horror is and will always be the best genre.

A Nightmare on Elm Street – Freddy’s Long Arms
Freddy Krueger was one terrifying boogeyman in Wes Craven’s franchise launching A Nightmare on Elm Street. It takes a while for Craven to give us a full look at the iconic character too, relegating him to the shadows in earlier scenes as he targets poor Tina (Amanda Wyss). It’s right before he finally catches and kills Tina on the ceiling of the bedroom in which she’s sleeping that we finally get a better look. In her nightmare, he appears silhouetted in shadow, edging closer until his arms reach out toward her and grow to inhuman lengths. All the while he’s cackling. It’s terrifying.

*Warning: I haven’t seen Us and, therefore, can’t spoil it for you. But if you like to go into movies knowing as little as possible, turn back now! Just know that Corey Feldman Easter Eggs exist and bookmark this page for later if you can’t find them.

If the beach scenes in the trailer for Jordan Peele’s Us look familiar, you’re probably a fan of 1980s-era horror movies. It’s Santa Cruz, California, and the boardwalk against the sea featured prominently in The Lost Boys (where the name of the town was changed to Santa Carla in order to avoid scaring potential tourists). So, while there’s an inherent connection between Joel Schumacher’s tale of teenage vampires and Us, you might be surprised to learn that Peele makes the connection explicit. Read More here

The cult classic that is The Lost Boys was one of those movies that people, teens mostly, spoke about in excited tones when they would get to see it with or without their parents’ permission (yes, this was still a thing back then) and shortly afterward would proceed to proclaim as one of the best movies ever. Keep in mind that during this time there weren’t a whole lot of quality vampire flicks that catered to a wide audience. Also keep in mind that the nature of the vampires in this movie was something that appealed to a younger crowd since they were made up to look like punk rockers and had the kind of attitudes that were rebellious and outright dangerous, something which still draws people of a certain age to watch these movies and become entranced. Plus, the fact that it had the two Corey’s was just another point in its favor as they were still riding a rather big wave of popularity that had yet to come crashing down. Here are five of the best songs from the soundtrack. Read More here

Just last month, The CW ordered up a pilot episode of a TV series adaptation of “The Lost Boys,“ with Rob Thomas (“Veronica Mars”) and Heather Mitchell (“Grey’s Anatomy”) attached. We don’t know all that much about the series at this time, but on the latest episode of Collider’s podcast The Witching Hour, hosts Haleigh and Perri broke a pretty big scoop. Read More here

‘Tis the season to revisit an ‘80s gem; Night of the Comet. The recent announcement that a remake is in the works would be enough of a reason to give this a watch, but Night of the Comet also happens to be an entry in Christmas horror that gets overlooked every year in favor of more traditional options.
