Owlman Has Become A Plushie

by Peter Paltridgeon April 19, 2018

by Peter Paltridgeon April 17, 2018
Konami announced today they’re finally making another game in the Castlevania series, Grimoire of Souls….but don’t get too excited. It’s still the same Konami that fired Hideo and pulled PT from your hard drive and released a shallow “Metal Gear” game early this year. True to form, their latest Castlevania won’t have any buttons. It’ll […]

The Tale Of An “Aliens” Saturday Morning Cartoon Has Been Debunked

by Peter Paltridgeon April 17, 2018
Nearly a year ago, we (along with many other websites, don’t just blame us) reported on the possible existence of a pilot called “Operation: Aliens.” The proposed animated series would have ran on Fox Kids during the 1992-93 season, but it was cancelled, leading to a lot of offbeat “Aliens” merchandise suddenly appearing in 1993, […]

10 Movies Not Covered On VH1’s I Love The 80s

by Johnny Capson April 16, 2018
Back in my RetroJunk days, many of my articles were list articles, and many of those lists pertained to the pop culture of the 1980s. As a lot of these articles were written in the 00s, they were part of the first wave of 80s nostalgia, probably best exemplified by VH1’s I Love The 80s […]

The Beauty Of Horror Brings Forth Its Ultimate Nightmare

by Peter Paltridgeon April 15, 2018
The nice thing about the recent trend of adult coloring books is that they’re allowed to get truly adult. The frightening images in Alan Robert’s Beauty of Horror series would make any crayon-eating 3-year-old poop themselves. Now thanks to IDW, the biggest prints yet of Robert’s drawings are about to terrorize the streets. The Beauty […]

American Angst Is Now On Google Play

by Peter Paltridgeon April 12, 2018
Take it from someone who grew up with an Apple II — text adventure games can be downright unnerving when done correctly. Amnesia and other such survival horror games may have gruesome visuals, but when all the input is text and your mind is free to fill in the blanks, it’s sometimes scarier. Thus, we […]

Calvin is a struggling actor who’d do anything for a big part — quite literally anything. One day, he lucks into the chance of a lifetime, but there’s stiff competition from several other actors. So, like some kind of supernatural Tonya Harding, he whips out his evil book of demonic spells and curses all the […]
