Never the the less, it is such a a shame we don’t feel this level of excitement about space exploration. Nowadays it’s all about the latest mobile phone handset, the latest game console..

Science Fiction/Fantasy Editor James offers a “compilation of recent thoughts” on Zach Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead; Rifftrax; The Incredibles soundtrack; and Summer Time Machine Blues.
When I watch the movie, I get a really physical sense of dread that accumulates in my chest. It’s almost immediate, considering how quickly the nightmarish events begin in the movie, and it doesn’t let up, really, even after the credits have started rolling. I’m generally not a fan of horror, or at least, I very rarely get that same sense of physical fear from other horror stories.

Screen Editor alex remembers watching horror classics in Grade 2:
When I was in grade two, my school thought it’d be a great Halloween activity to have a movie screening of old horror films. They showed us the 1931 adaptations of Dracula and Frankenstein, the original 1932 The Mummy, and the 1954 3-D classic, The Creature from the Black Lagoon. At age eight I had not yet acquired a taste for the macabre. That came a little later, with my grandfather’s old Chas Addams cartoon collections and the Edward Gorey “Gashlycrumb Tinies” poster my mother hung in her office. At eight, those movies gave me nightmares.
