I'm back from my short absence with a positive review of the latest film in the V/H/S Franchise!  Chances are if you've stumbled upon this review you're already familiar with the series, if you're not they're essentially "found footage" anthology flicks; each has also managed to out do it's predecessor.  With V/H/S: Viral things are a bit different, rather than the "shot on video" vibe the first two films had, Viral focuses more on the internet age.  A theme inherently present in the third film's wraparound segment (titled Vicious Cycles).  With the 'Cycles we're following a man who's determined to become the next internet sensation, to become "viral" (ahem).


Funko Pop! - Universal Monsters

Have you had a chance to pick up any of Funko's new Universal Monsters Pop! collectibles?  If not you're really missing out.  Today I'll be doing a  review of four of the releases from this series, The Mummy, The Wolfman, The Creature, and The Phantom. 

Figma - Flyboy action figure review!

George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead is arguably one of the best horror flicks of the 70's and it's no surprise that there's been a ton of inspired merchandise released over the years.  Funny considering the film's central theme, fan's have been spoiled with dozens of t-shirts, shot glasses, key chains, and more.  Surprisingly however, the number of action figures based on the film are few and far between.  In the 90's Reds Toys provided fans with four figures (Bald Head Zombie, Motorcycle Rider, Stephen, and Hatchet Head Zombie.)  Years later Neca would give Romero's zombie opus a shot with their cult classics line which eventually produced figures for Flyboy, the Hare Krishna Zombie, and the Plaid Shirt Zombie.  Unfortunately things dried up soon after, thankfully the Japanese company Figma has picked up the slack.
