If Horror Movies Were 'Goosebumps' Novels

If It Were Stine on Tumblr If It Were Stine on Tumblr

The witching hour is approaching fast, people, 'cause it's Halloween, and that means tonight the costumes will go on and once that spiked apple cider starts flowing, all inhibitions will probably soar right out the door. Will it be a treat? That totally depends.

'Til night falls, though, how about a little holiday-themed movie-to-book trickery to tide even your spookiest inner demons over?

Presenting the If It Were Stine series from the wicked wizards of Tumblr (via Laughing Squid), a reimagination of some of horror's biggest classics as R.L. Stine's "Goosebumps" novels. Get More »

'Evil Dead' Will Become a Haunted Maze at Universal Studios This Halloween

A la their blood brothers over at "The Cabin in the Woods," the 2013 remake of 'Evil Dead,' not satisfied with merely scaring the ever-living s**t out of people for two hours at a time on the big screen, will be its own haunted maze come Halloween at Universal Studios in Orlando or Universal Studios Hollywood.
Someone's excited! (Though I feel like just flashing the above .gif on a projector against the side of the building would do the trick equally, right? Perhaps I speak only for myself?) Get More »

Drew Goddard's Monstrous 'Cabin in the Woods' Maze Will Creep Everyone Out

Lionsgate Lionsgate

Basically, "The Cabin in the Woods" went and took all the usual conventions of an increasingly tired horror genre, balled 'em up into a bloody weird wad of awesome and then proceeded to blow everybody's minds with an endless barrage of monsters. The movie went from your everyday boo factor trip to some creepy old house into this gnarly statement on mortality and fear and a buncha other stuff that we still don't quite understand ... all stemming from the twisted little mind-matching of director Drew Goddard and his pal Joss Whedon.

And while Whedon's been off imbibing Shakespeare and preparing for "The Avengers 2," Goddard's been busy tooling on a way to keep right on creepin' everyone out with his board full of ghouls, and now he's found it. This Halloween, the Universal Studios-going world will have the chance to visit an actual "Cabin in the Woods" maze designed in part by the man himself. Get More »

GALLERY: Chris Hemsworth - Soldier, Huntsman and Superhero

Chris Hemsworth worked the rugged look in every possible way this year: outdoors guy, Norse god, huntsman and, now, homemade soldier. His rippling muscles and blue eyes alone prove there's something in the Aussie water.

This week he's trading in his mighty "Thor" hammer for an assault rifle in "Red Dawn," keeping America safe from invading communist forces.

Sure, Chris' younger brother Liam enjoyed some time in the spotlight this year with '"The Hunger Games," but between "Snow White and the Huntsman," "The Cabin in the Woods," "The Avengers" and now "Red Dawn," the elder Hemsworth is the only one we want to cuddle with out in the wilderness.

See for yourself with Chris' Hot People Looking Hot gallery. Trust us, you'll forget all about the threat of the North Korean army after going through these pics.
