The Meals Of Horror: Part 2!

Can you feel it creeping towards you? We're less than a week away from I-Mockery's annual "Two Months of Halloween" celebration, and I can't wait to dive right into all the madness! I always look forward to writing new Halloweeny pieces and talking with all of you about them, and I already have some really fun pieces in the works for this season. Remember, just like we've been doing every year for well over a decade now, the big celebration begins next Thursday, September 1st.

While you wait for it to kick off, here's an appetizer for you in the form of my newest article for Dread Central!

The Most Memorable Meals of Horror: Part 2!

The Most Memorable Meals of Horror: Part 2 was a lot of fun to write, as I got into some more of my favorite spooky suppers from films including The 'Burbs, Theatre of Blood, and more. Thanks for reading, and be sure to post in the comments section of the article what other horror movie meals you'd like featured in future installments. I just may include it in the next batch!

Mr. Robot & Monster Cereals!

Not sure how many of you are big fans of the Mr. Robot TV series like I am, but even if you don't follow the show, I just wrote an article about something special the creators just released that any 80s horror fan will surely appreciate:

Mr. Robot presents The Careful Massacre of the Bourgeoisie! A retro 80s throwback slasher on VHS!

In my latest article, I break down everything they did right with The Careful Massacre of the Bourgeoisie - from making a faux VHS tape, to crafting perfectly wretched characters who you can't wait to see die in the film. Click above to read the article for yourself, then watch the 8+ minute throwback slasher that will have you cheering for a new horror hero named Uncle Conrad. They seriously did everything right with this one, and I think you'll agree with me once you check it out. Also, big thanks to all of you who spread the word about my recent Meals of Horror piece for Dread Central. I really appreciate the support, and it's certainly helping me get in the mood for our annual "Two Months of Halloween" 2016 season here on I-Mockery!

And speaking of Halloween...

General Mills Monsters Cereal Election! Vote for Boo Berry!

General Mills has just unveiled the boxes for their 2016 Monster Cereals, and it turns out that Boo Berry, Franken Berry, and Count Chocula are running against each other in a Monsters Cereal Election! If you know anything about this site, I'm sure you already know who I cast my vote for. I'm With Boo! Make sure you cast your vote, because I'm pretty sure there aren't any other elections going on this year that matter nearly as much as this one. I'll be sure to post more details and my thoughts on the 2016 cereals when I get my hands on them, but until then... Feel the BOOrn!

Boo for You! Vote for Boo Berry in the General Mills Monsters Cereal Election!

The Meals Of Horror & More!

Hey chums! I'm back from the San Diego Comic-Con and currently in my annual "I-just-stood-nonstop-on-a-concrete-floor-and-talked-to-hundreds-of-people-all-week-long-at-the-largest-comic-convention-in-the-world" recovery mode. Lots of things to catch up on, but while I recuperate from all the chaos of the past week, I have have a few fun updates for you to check out.

Longtime readers of I-Mockery may recall when I was on Dread Central's "Splattrax" for a viewing of the classic Larry Drake horror-comedy, Dr. Giggles. Well, I'm happy to report that I'm now doing some freelance articles for Dread Central as well, and my first one just went up:

The Most Memorable Meals of Horror: Part 1!

My first entry is called The Most Memorable Meals of Horror, and like the title suggests, it covers some of the biggest culinary scene stealers to ever appear in horror flicks. It's going to be an ongoing series, so if you don't see something you think should've appeared in part one, by all means let me know, as I may include it in my follow-up entries!

In other news, the Tournament of Nerds show I've been in for ages now just celebrated its eighth anniversary, which is a pretty amazing run for any comedy show at UCB Theatre... or anywhere else. We put on a special show for the big anniversary, and it was an absolute blast. Wish I could show it to you, but it wasn't recorded... it's just for LA locals at UCB. That said, the very next week, we took the show down to the San Diego Comic-Con and it aired live on Screen Junkies for some really fun exhibition matches. Thankfully, this one was recorded, and you can watch the full video after the jump: (more...)

I-Mockery At The 2016 San Diego Comic-Con July 20th - 24th! Come See Us At Booth #E10! New Poster!

This could be you! Dinosaurs Attack Comic-Con!
You too could experience the thrill of being mauled at Comic-Con!

Preparing for exhibiting at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con feels like a whirlwind of chaos, just like is has every year we've been there. This will actually be I-Mockery's eighth time as an exhibitor, and the time really has flown by. You'd think a person would be tired of it by now, but I'm honestly just as excited as ever to attend the convention and see all the familiar faces (and new ones) who stop by our booth. Be sure to pay us a visit if you're coming to Comic-Con as we'll be at (Booth #E10 - near Aisles 600 & 700 on the West side of the convention center - here's a handy map). The main reason to come by our booth? It's quite simple:

What could we possibly have in store for you with our 8-bit Pixels Under The Sea pixel poster? Come to our booth at Comic-Con and see!

We're unveiling our brand new "8-bit Pixels Under The Sea" pixel poster! Pox and I have been wanting to make this particular poster for a long time, so we're really excited to have it finished! The colors on the print are super vibrant and jumping right out of the water like a crazed, rabid shark. You're gonna LOVE this one! And yes, in case you're wondering, we ended up using many of the fantastic suggestions all of you sent in for it, so thanks again to those of you who pitched in! (more...)

Ecto Coolest: A Documentary About The World’s Biggest Ecto Cooler Fans.

I've always been a huge fan of Ecto Cooler, and I'm thrilled to see it finally return this year, in conjunction with the new Ghostbusters movie. After having vanished like a from store shelves over a decade ago, Slimer's trademark beverage had been long overdue for a return. What really surprised me, however, is I recently learned that there are two guys who are even bigger fans of Ecto Cooler than I am. Check out this new documentary about World's Biggest Ecto Cooler Fans, Mort and Gort Torpentine, to see just how much of an incredible impact Slimer's green juice actually had on their lives.

Also, if you haven't read my big review about the Return of Ecto Cooler, be sure to check it out for full details on what it's like and where you can find some for yourself!

Make Suggestions For Our Upcoming Underwater Pixel Poster!

Over the years, many people have suggested we create an underwater themed pixel poster, so I'm happy to announce that we're finally making it happen! Having released our "8-bit Worlds Collide" and "Pixels in Space" pixel posters, Pox and I decided it was time to take our pixels into the deep blue sea. As always, we wanna give all of you a chance to help create it. It's a blast to see what aquatic ideas all of you come up with each time we do one of these, and we're sure you'll have some fantastic suggestions for this next poster.

Make suggestions for our upcoming Underwater pixel poster!

With that in mind, please post your suggestions below for characters, ships, structures, and anything else you'd love to see in our next pixel print in the comments section below - you don't even need a registered account to post 'em! Be sure to make as many suggestions as you can come up with; the more we receive, the more likely it is that we'll include some of 'em on this poster. Also, if you can, please make sure your suggestions have something to do with WATER. It doesn't matter if it comes from movies, television, comics, cartoons, toys, or something else entirely; all we ask is that it has something to do with water such as the ocean, sailing, aquatic life, swimming... you get the idea. To help get your creative juices flowing, here's a small sampling of the happy chaos that can be found on some of our previous pixel prints:

A sampling of the original Four Seasons of Pixels poster print set!

I'm really excited about this next print, as Pox and I have already added some of our favorite ideas into it that we think you'll all really appreciate.
