Matt’s Countdown to Halloween Comic Fest – 9 Days to Go!

Welcome back to Matt’s Halloween Comic Fest Countdown!  From now until HCF (Saturday, October 28th), Matt will be sharing some of his favorite horror comics and horror movies with us all. Let’s see what he has in store for today, take it away Matt:

Today’s selection is a story by one of my favorite creative teams, Brian Azarello and Eduardo Risso, entitled Moonshine!

Moonshine takes place during the Prohibition era and follows a crime family’s top gun in the midst of smuggling back the best hooch NYC has ever seen. While acquiring the contraband from a clan of hillbillies the unexpected happens when werewolves show up to make
things interesting. If you like a good werewolf story or are a fan of this team’s work on 100 Bullets this is one you cant
miss!

With the book recommendation done, it is time to go to the movies with today’s film recommendation Beyond The Gates!

Did you grow up in the 80s? Do you remember VHS interactive board games? Then this may be a treat for you.

This story follows two brothers. Their father is missing and presumed dead and it is now up to them to get all of his affairs in order. One major task they face is boxing up their father’s Video Rental store where they stumble across an eerie VHS board game. The game quickly becomes all too real…but not in the fun Jumanji kind of way

Beyond the Gates came out last year and I decided to take a chance and check it out on Netflix. I was not disappointed. It is low budget, but nonetheless it delivers with an original concept and good atmosphere which seems harder and harder to come by these days within the genre.,.and wow, what a theme song.

Well I hope you enjoy these recommendations.  Thanks for checking this out and be sure to come back tomorrow for more spooky goodness!
