Gallery: If Horror Icons Came With Ikea Instructions
I supposed another title for this article could be “It Came from Instagram!” with an eerie theremin sound effect. So, there’s this talented fella I follow on Instagram named Ed Harrington (find his site here). He’s an illustrator, Star Wars and horror lover. He’s really into archery too, apparently. Over the last few months, he’s been posting to his “Nothing Happened Today” Instagram account a series of mock Ikea instructions inspired by the likes of Hellraiser, the Friday the 13th series, The Fly and The Human Centipede. He’s thrown Edward Scissorhand into the mix, too.

The Scooby-Doo Gang Meets Modern Horror Villains in This Awesome Gallery
Over the last 24 hours I’ve been seeing folks post awesome animation cell-style images of the Scooby-Doo gang meeting contemporary horror villains like Captain Spaulding, Ghostface, Michael Myers, Patrick Bateman, Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees. I don’t know where they originated, but we should credit artist “TB Real” apparently. (If anyone has more information, please let me know and I’ll update this item.) Loving these so much.

Editorial: Jason Takes Manhattan at 25
If you were a young horror fan in the ‘80s, chances are you had a favorite among the decade’s big slasher series. For me, my franchise of choice was Friday the 13th. Freddy had the one-liners and the FX razzle-dazzle and Michael Myers had horror’s #1 holiday staked out as his own but for me, solid, steady Jason had ‘em beat. All throughout the ‘80s, Friday the 13th was the fix that I craved the most each year. Now, I can’t quite explain why that is but then again I also can’t say why I prefer chocolate ice cream over vanilla. I just do.

Nothing Certain About Approach to New Friday the 13th
I’m going to give it to you straight about Jason. No approach has been decided when it comes to the new Friday the 13th film. I had a chat with the producers a few weeks back. Admittedly, they’re slammed with films like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Purge: Anarchy right now, but Friday the 13th is definitely on their mind. When I spoke to producer Brad Fuller of Platinum Dunes, he said David Bruckner (V/H/S, The Signal) is still on board. As for whether the film was going to be “found footage” or 3D, well, B-D got Fuller on the record to talk about that.

The 10 Best Horror Remakes of the Last 10 Years
Ah, remakes. The mere mention of that word often sends horror fans running for the hills, as there’s nothing we hate quite as much as our favorite classics being messed with. Well, there’s nothing most of us hate quite as much as that, at least. The fact of the matter is that there are just as many good remakes as there are bad ones, the same way that there are just as many bad original horror movies as there are good original ones. It’s for this reason that it’s fairly ridiculous to write off all remakes simply because they’re based on movies from the past, as doing so excludes gems like The Fly and The Thing from the Top 10 lists that they most definitely belong high atop.
