…and if the ‘reboot’ doesn’t happen, then we’ve got the original to fall back on. Some of those episodes scared the bejesus out of us. Remember the “Halloween Candy” episode that Tom Savini did with the grouchy old man who hated giving out candy and was shitty to the kids trick-or-treating? And he re-used the monster from “The Crate” segment in Creepshow? God, we love horror anthology films and TV shows, and this one has some promising names attached to it… we won’t count on it happening, but it’s sure good news on a dark November night. And we LOVED the 1990 movie – remember Debbie Harry playing a witch in the wrap-around story? I saw it in the theater, bought the movie on VHS tape, and on DVD over the years. If you don’t remember it… well, does a young Steve Buscemi (still years away from hitting the A-List back then) as a nerd who resurrects a blood-thirsty mummy, Dave Johansen playing a hitman fighting a “cat from Hell”, or beautiful Debbie Harry keeping a little boy locked up in a cage in her kitchen as she prepares to cook him for dinner that night ring a bell? No? See Tales From The Darkside: The Movie ASAP. And the series, available on Netflix, isn’t too shabby either!
Oh, it’s not just The Walking Dead that has awesome zombie action executed by some serious talent and vision… but you knew that already, didn’t you? Take a look at Joshua Hoffine’s successfully Kick-Started new epic* zombie photograph LAST STAND. This is only Part 1, too! I in no way shape or form even begin to hold the copyright for the image in the featured image/splash image above, that is, of course, created by and ©Josh Hoffine and belongs solely to him. Look, he uses some of his repertory cast of models again; my favorites being Bob Barber (usually cast as a slender demon or that escaped homicidal mental patient they’ve just done a breaking newscast to be on the alert for) and Hoffine’s lovely wife Jen, who most memorably played a modern version of Lady Bathory getting the FULL spa treatment. Oh, and I almost forgot their adorable daughter Sadie. Enjoy, and we cannot recommend bookmarking this blog enough. Hell, just follow it like we do!

This is my new photograph titled LAST STAND.
It depicts a family about to be consumed by a horde of zombies.
The star of the photo is A. Michael Baldwin from the classic Horror movie Phantasm (1979).
The little girl is my niece Thea, who was also the baby in my photo SNAKE.
The mom was played by Erica Kauffman.
The other child victim was played by my daughter Sadie.
We built our set at the 3rd St. Asylum Haunted House in Bonner Springs, Kansas. My cousins Jerry and Steve Hoffine did all of the carpentry and construction.
Bill Rose and his girlfriend Michelle stayed up late one night to wallpaper my set for me.
Here you can see Steve and Bill measuring the shag carpet.
I filled the set with my gathered props. Jerry Hoffine and Mike Clouse destroyed the door by jumping on it.
Here you can see…
