32 Days of Halloween V, Movie Night No. 5:...

That’s right, Movie Night #5 of 32 Days of Halloween is reserved for films involving giant creatures trying to kill us all. Because that’s quality. Over the years, we’ve looked at a giant deadly mantis, giant spiders, even...

Okay, pop quiz, hotshot. You’ve got to do a cover for War of the Worlds. What have you got to work with? A stove’s drip pan, a toy plastic brain, some metal coils, and a squid. “Let’s get to work.” DUN-DUN...
