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. The weird horror he pioneered in the early 20th century not only helped create a genre, but spawned an entire industry around it.  Many of Lovecraft's … Continue reading Monster of the Week: Colour out of Space – 2020 | New 5th Edition Monster

Also, heavy on dialogue. An ode to horror, the film features all the elements of a good entry in the … Continue reading Monster of the Week: Sugarplum Fairy (Cabin in the Woods) – 2011 | New 5th Edition Monster

Monster of the Week: Michael Myers (Halloween Franchise) – 1978 | New 5th Edition Monster

Michael Myers

""Death is the only solution for Michael." What can I possibly say about Michael Myers, the Halloween franchise and the original 1978 Halloween movie that hasn't been said already? It's a film that re-made and arguably made the modern slasher genre into what it is today. It launched the careers of John Carpenter (The Thing) … Continue reading Monster of the Week: Michael Myers (Halloween Franchise) – 1978 | New 5th Edition Monster
