Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley is one of the most recognized goth novelists of her time, she is called the mother of science fiction and horror, and is considered one of the earliest feminist writers in history. Today Mary is best known for her 1818 novel Frankenstein, Or The Modern Prometheus —a tale so old and gruesome, that it still haunts the readers today. Her life was full of poetry, family scandals and love affairs, repeated loss and blackmail, and some other morbid facts that spice it all up.
As you may all know, James Wan is one of my personal favourite directors because of his contribution to the post-modern horror film using almost hitchcockian efforts. James Wan’s contribution to modern horror and post-modern horror are pretty unrivalled and his work on the “Conjuring” universe and “Insidious” series just go to show how much he is involved with the process even if he isn’t entirely responsible for the film or in the role of director.
Of course, what you're looking at is just a fan poster. But we can dream. Still the headline isn't as much of a pipe dream as you might be thinking, because there is some truth behind the madness. Here's why:
King is quite the philanthropist. And Bangor, Maine, loves the King family to death (and undeath) given how much the household of horror has contributed to the community. Count this next story within the accolades of the master behind IT and Pet Sematary:
That may be a stretch. We may be exaggerating. We're not, though. When you've got clout, tremendous backing, a history of making great films, and adaptability to branch out into everything from action, to drama, to even comedy, Sylvester Stallone is the cream of the crop!
We tend to forget that when it comes to Tarantino, the man's a legend. He himself is a motion picture! He's the Stephen King of film-making when you think about it. In fact... wouldn't it be a novel idea to have Tarantino adapt one of King's novels? We think so. Stanley Kubrick has, of course, done just that with The Shining.
You remember Ladyhawke, don't you? Iconic medieval fantasy film about a rugged black knight with golden locks who falls in love with Michelle Pfeiffer, secretly a hawk by day. Oh, yeah, and the knight turns into a wolf at night. You can't buy stories like that anywhere. They're timeless.
It's Stephen King! He doesn't need an intro. A household name since the early 80s, and a staple in the horror community. The creator of IT has brutally carved himself into the hearts and minds of people all over the world. From cosplayers, to cartoonists, there isn't an artist alive who hasn't paid homage to The King.
Vincent Price was one of the most successful horror actors of all time. Known for such titles as House of Wax, House of Usher, Edward Scissorhands, and The Masque of the Red Death, his career spanned decades, and remains the stuff of legend. His trademark mustache, "evil" laugh, and sonorous voice became a part of pop culture that remains well-known long after his death.
I have been a fan of Jordan Peele since he and Keegan Michael Key were on MAD TV. I’m not saying this to prove myself as a dedicated fan, I’m saying this because I never would have guessed that he would come out with a masterpiece like Get Out. Yet, we were given the Oscar-winning film in 2017 and we haven’t been able to stop talking about it. Now he has graced us with a new film, Us, which some people expected to have a similar political tone. This is for a number of reasons: The pre-screenings exclusive to black media influencers called “Us First,” the presence of Winston Duke and Lupita N’yongo (fresh out of Wakanda), and the simple fact that Us is coming out right into the shadow that Get Out left behind.
Do you believe in ghosts? It's a question that people often ask with an incredulousness usually reserved for a toddler who doesn't obey their parent. True believers tell tales of ghosts that they have encountered and what it was like when the spirit presented themselves to the believer, yet skeptics will not change their mind. Until they are confronted with a spirit themselves, like tenants who have lived in George Reeves's old home in Los Angeles.
Death is inevitable; there are many ways to go - some stranger than others. We all go one way or another and we don’t usually get to choose how, and sometimes fate chooses the most unusual ways to die. Here are some of the strangest ways to die in history.
