You’re not going to find many horror fans who will ever get sick of anthologies. They may not all be good, but they’re almost always worth at least one watch on the likely chance that at least one of the segments will be fun.

Who is Larry Cohen? If you don’t recognize his name, I promise you’ll recognize his films. The now 77-year old has been working in the industry since the late 1950s and evolved from writing noir and western television to become a prolific genre filmmaker. His most prominent works include Black Caesar (1973), It’s Alive (1974), God Told Me To (1976), Q (1982), The Stuff (1985), and Phone Booth (2002). In all he has over 80 writing credits and 20+ directorial efforts. But more than his films was his renegade and rogue filmmaking style. A writer who became a director and producer, Larry Cohen was the consummate hustler and true triple threat. His life and career are now the subject of a phenomenal documentary, King Cohen: The Wild World of Filmmaker Larry Cohen, written and directed by Steve Mitchell and put out by Dark Star Pictures.

Thankfully Zach Galligan, who starred in the first two Gremlins movies, is keeping us updated on where things stand. Continue below to read what he had to say.
If the bloody and beautiful official trailer and October 31st premiere date announcement for Ash vs. Evil Dead wasn’t enough to get you ready for summer to go away so that fall can arrive—and it should be more than enough—here’s another little treat for you horror junkies.

Actor, writer, and stand-up comic Rick Ducommun, best known for his hilarious performances in such classics of cinematic comedy as The ‘Burbs and Groundhog Day, has passed away. He was 58.
Born on July 3, 1956 in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, Ducommun began his acting career on the short-lived Canadian children’s television program Zig Zag.
