Horror Movie Franchises in Space

In honor of the space shuttle Endeavour flying over LA today, we’ve been thinking about the best horror movies set in outer space. In terms of quality, nothing can really beat Alien and its sequels/prequels. (Who else is excited about Prometheus coming out on DVD next month?)

Check out the 1979 trailer for Alien:

But who can forget the horror movie franchises that have gone to space simply because they can:

What horror franchise should go to space next? Saw in space? Paranormal Activity in space? Let us know in the comments!

Zombie Costume Ideas: Game of Thrones White Walker

There are certain zombies that stand out from the horde. The White Walkers from HBO’s Game of Thrones are extremely unique and iconic. (Not to mention terrifying!) Why not try being a White Walker for Halloween? If you have the FX chops to recreate their blue-eyed leader, you have our total respect. Here is a closer look at the White Walker makeup and prosthetics by Creatures Inc., LTD. But if you have a long brown cape, some furs, ice FX makeup and zombie FX makeup, you should be able to make a pretty convincing White Walker.
