Monster of the Week: Colour out of Space – 2020 | New 5th Edition Monster

Colour Out of Space

"They're not my family."  Apart from Tolkien, there is probably no bigger influence on the fantasy worlds that make up the backdrops of most tabletop games than H.P. Lovecraft.

That's how they git you. I don't think I've met a horror fan who hasn't seen and also liked, Tremors.  Witty, action-packed, suspenseful and with a dry humor, the nineties classic underground man-eating gigantic worm horror movie has a memorable cast, engaging plot and practical effects that hold up almost thirty years after its release. … Continue reading Monster of the Week: Graboid (Tremors 1 | 2 | 3 ) – The ’90’s | New 5th Edition Monster(s)

Monster of the Week: Shiver (Shivers) – 1975 | New 5th Edition Monster

Nobody should be alone tonight. This has been a strange year, to put it mildly. Personally, I've recently gone on a Cronenberg bing, trying to watch the body-horror writer/director's works alongside my normal menu of horror. Videodrome left me mesmerized, Scanners left me thoughtful (and I'll be covering soon) and I finally got around to … Continue reading Monster of the Week: Shiver (Shivers) – 1975 | New 5th Edition Monster
