Watching horror flicks during the Halloween 🎃 season, there might be yet another face, aside from Karloff, Lugosi, Lee, Tom Atkins and Robert England, that you might see more than once…and that familiar face is actor and horror icon, the late John Saxon! A movie and TV veteran for over sixty years, Saxon has appeared in a number of horror classics and cult classics, from the 70s to present day, like Argento’s Tenebrae, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and the Robert Rodriguez vampire flick From Dusk till Dawn. So, in honor of this veteran of horror, here are 10 horror flicks that illustrate why it’s not Halloween 🎃 without John Saxon!

MONSTERZERO NJ’S 12 LGBTQIA+ HORRORS FOR PRIDE MONTH!

Colin Minihan’s What Keeps You Alive, pits spouse against spouse

Its Pride Month and MonsterZero NJ’s Movie Madhouse commemorates by focusing on twelve—plus three noteworthy bonus titles—horrors with LGBTQIA+ themes or main characters. Horror is a genre with something for everyone and was one of the first to embrace LGBTQIA+ content into its stories, as far back as 1936, when it was still considered taboo! Enjoy! – MZNJ

Worth highlighting all on its own is Hammer Horror’s groundbreaking Karnstein Trilogy, three vampire flicks which featured openly lesbian themes at a time when it was bold to do so!

HAPPY 50th ANNIVERSARY GODZILLA vs GIGAN!

HAPPY 50th ANNIVERSARY GODZILLA vs GIGAN!

godzilla vs Gigan
Godzilla and his horny pal Anguirus battle King Ghidorah and his cyborg bud Gigan!

50 years ago, today Toho Studios released Godzilla vs Gigan, the twelfth flick in the series at the time. It had alien cockroaches attacking earth using the space monsters King Ghidorah and Gigan to lead the charge. Godzilla and former foe Anguirus take on the invaders to save the world! It’s not the best of the series but is a lot of fun and Gigan has become a cult favorite character. I actually saw it in a theater as a kid when Cinema Shares released it five years later as Godzilla on Monster Island.

HAPPY 50th ANNIVERSARY GODZILLA vs GIGAN!
