Why Jeffrey Combs is our ultimate avatar of sexy weirdness

You're already a fan of Jeffrey Combs. Maybe you've seen him play a slew of all-too-human aliens on Star Trek, maybe you've watched him go too far in Re-Animator. But we bet you haven't seen all his great genre roles. » 10/05/10 5:30pm 10/05/10 5:30pm

Gooey Monsters, Other Dimensions, and (Of Course) Boobies [NSFW]

For those of you who have had the pleasure of watching Stuart Gordon's masterpiece Re-Animator, his 1986 follow-up movie From Beyond is sure to please. It's pretty much the same cast, including a weirdly hot Jeffrey Combs, and is based extremely loosely on an H.P. Lovecraft story. Basically what happens is that a… » 5/30/08 5:12pm 5/30/08 5:12pm

Goodbye to 4400's Ripoff Mutants and Zany Scientology

Scott Peters, creator of the lovably bizarre mutant saga 4400, has just announced the show will be canceled after 4 seasons and a trippy cliffhanger. In this clip, you see the show at its best, making fun of its own gooftastic premise, which is that there are 4400 people in the world who time-traveled to the future,… » 12/19/07 7:30am 12/19/07 7:30am

Re-Animator Flick On Hold Because Zombies Are Way Too Political

My heart is breaking because Jeffrey Combs just told SciFi Wire that we may be waiting a lot longer for the much-anticipated House of Re-Animator, the fourth in the Re-Animator series, and the second to be directed by its anarchist-comedian mastermind, Stuart Gordon. Apparently its political message, about a zombie… » 10/08/07 11:59pm 10/08/07 11:59pm
