From the time when the denizens of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD shambled through its farmhouse field to the tune of creature feature stock music, George Romero’s horror films have had a pulp throwback feel to them that recalled the graphic, moral comeuppance of such E.C. comics as “Tales From the Crypt” and “Vault of Horror.” So it was only natural that the filmmaker would unleash his own cinematic, blood-colored anthology with 1982s CREEPSHOW, authored by no less than Stephen King. It’s a film that for many remains the director’s most unhinged and pleasurable effort, especially with its seamless combination […]Read On »

Showtime’s original comedy EPISODES has its first-season finale on Sunday. The series finds Matt LeBlanc playing himself as the lead in an American adaptation of a Britcom. The writers/producers of aforesaid Britcom, played by Stephen Mangan and Tamsin Greig, find their original ideas mangled into something unrecognizable at every turn by high-handed network executive Merc Lapidus, played by stage, TV and film veteran John Pankow (MAD ABOUT YOU, THE DAYS AND NIGHTS OF MOLLY DODD, TO LIVE AND DIE IN L.A.).
