2016 Should've been the year of the GHOSTBUSTERS, but unlike the supernatural forces that the cast of the new film faced-off against on screen, the battle against internet trolls was a little tougher to defeat. Despite the unusual backlash over the reboot of the classic franchise, GHOSTBUSTERS: ANSWER THE CALL hit theaters (read my original review here) and won over audiences and critics alike, hopefully positioning the Ghostbusters for future adventures (both animated and live-action) in the years ahead. Out now on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD, GHOSTBUSTERS is a perfect movie for Halloween, and a cool idea to "Boo" your neighbors with. Have you ever been BOO'd? We have...
I have never seen one of Tyler Perry's MADEA movies, but that's going to change pretty soon with the October 21, 2016 release of BOO! A MADEA HALLOWEEN. In this new send-up of the horror genre, Madea winds up in the middle of mayhem when she spends a haunted Halloween fending off killers, paranormal poltergeists, ghosts, ghouls and zombies while keeping a watchful eye on a group of misbehaving teens. Check out the official trailer below, along with the just-released, 1980s-style "slasher" trailer - complete with VHS look, full-screen aspect ratio and synth soundtrack!
They say that "The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot about That!" - the "that" being just about anything, including the holidays. Following-up a special devoted to Christmas, THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT HALLOWEEN! is a fresh-to-DVD release from NCircle Entertainment this year, providing some new spooky fun.
For the past few years, Halloween Comic Fest has put a spooky, seasonal spin on what comic fans experience each May during Free Comic Book Day. Halloween Comic Fest (October 29, 2016) is a fall celebration of comics that offers families a chance to enjoy fun activities at their local comic shop, with a full assortment of free comics available, along with costume contests, artist appearances and more. This year's lineup boasts 19 full-sized comics, along with 13 mini-comics. Among the books available this year are titles from DC and MARVEL, along with numerous indies, spanning series' such as DC SUPER HERO GIRLS, THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, Star Wars' DARTH VADER, MIRACULOUS: TALES OF LADYBUG & CAT NOIR, GRUMPY CAT, EVIL DEAD, AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE, MY LITTLE PONY, POKEMON and more (see them all here).
Mattel has a long tradition of releasing themed-versions of their popular toys, and holidays have been a big part of that over the years - particularly with Hot Wheels. When fall rolls around, there has usually been a limited-edition Halloween-themed series available as a retailer exclusive, and for 2016 that's true once more... but the exact locations have been a bit trickier to pin down. This year's 8-car Halloween line has been popping up at select grocers (many Kroger-owned chains are rumored to have them) and drug stores. Check out this year's assortment below!
