    Q&A: Borderlands’ Thomas Monteleone talks re-introducing the work of Henry Kuttner

    The crew over at Borderlands Press calls Henry Kuttner a “secret superstar.” It is an appellation that seems more than apt when one considers the profound impact this largely overlooked fantastic fiction maestro had on some of the most revered figures in the genre—Richard Matheson and Ray Bradury each dedicated books to Kuttner (I AM LEGEND and DARK CARNIVAL, respectively); William Burroughs saw fit to quote him in his work; Lovecraft considered him a friend and worthy purveyor of Cthulhu Mythos; Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, Roger Zelazny, and other dark fiction luminaries cite him as an influence. Alas, in the years since his far-too-early death at age 42 in 1958—and despite the efforts of a coterie of staunch devotees—Kuttner’s work has fallen further and further off the dark literature radar.

    Trailer: The dreadful stares of “MANIAC”

    A lot of Franck Khalfoun’s nasty, unsettling remake of William Lustig’s nasty, New York horror MANIAC is looking. Of course, much of the film you’re staring through the eyes of the maniac himself, but then there’s the stares back at him, something highlighted in the movie’s official U.S. trailer. The eyes looking back at Frank (Elijah Wood) are filled with judgment, fear, affection, enticement and it all adds greatly to a truly dreadful atmosphere.

    Full Trailer: Edgar Wright brings us “THE WORLD’S END”

    Can you, in fact, go home again? Not when alien robots have taken over. A bit snappier, some bigger action and certainly more trailer guy voiceover-ier, the U.S. preview for the upcoming Wright/Pegg/Frost joint reveals a bit more of everyone and what they’re up against.

    The third Cornetto is fast approaching. The cap to director Edgar Wright’s previous collaborations with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost finds the former playing ne’er do well Gary King, a 40-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub – The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.

    Here, we’ve got high energy, humanoids with elongated arms, a bigger look at Rosamund Pike’s character and what looks like SIGHTSEERS’ brilliant Steve Oram.

    The highly, highly anticipated (by me, and hopefully all of you) THE WORLD’S END hits August 23. You can find the trailer at Yahoo!
