From wikipedia:

The Robot vs. the Aztec Mummy (originally La momia azteca contra el robot humano) is a 1958 Mexican film directed by Rafael Portillo, starring Ramón Gay and Rosa Arenas. It blends elements of science fiction and horror. The film is the sequel to The Aztec Mummy and The Curse of the Aztec Mummy, both released earlier that year, and a large portion of the film consists of an extended recap of the first two entries in the series.

From the description: “ENVOY is a science fiction, action adventure, short film to be used as a proof of concept for a larger full-length motion picture. A love-letter to many of the classic action-adventure and science fiction films of the ’80s & ’90s, Envoy is a passion-project created by Director David Weinstein and Visual Effects Supervisor Adam Coggin.”

The Warp is reporting that Vince Gerardis (co-executive producer of HBO’s Game of Thrones) is bringing an adaptation of Kim Stanley Robinson’s Mars Trilogy to Spike TV.

Robinson’s Hugo and Nebula award-winning Mars series — consisting of Red Mars (1993) , Green Mars (1994) and Blue Mars (1996) — details the story of the colonization of Mars and all of the political and ecological challenges that go along with it. The trilogy also examines the effects that advanced technology has on the society that develops it.

Robinson will be on hand to consult on the series.

No movie is perfect…and just in case anyone needed to be reminded of that, there’s the “Everything Wrong With” series of videos. Like this one for The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Chris Vander Kaay and Kathleen Fernandez-Vander Kaay are a husband and wife writing team who agree on almost everything except whether or not 28 Days Later should be considered a zombie movie. Though their career has been focused primarily on nonfiction work with the Deseret News and the website Bloody Good Horror, they have also been recognized for their fiction and poetry. After years devoted to books (like The Anatomy of Fear) and articles in which they championed the idea that the horror film genre should be taken seriously, they hope the idea is finally catching on. You can follow them at their blog, www.inthemargin.net.

We Need a Halloween for Science Fiction!

by Chris Vander Kaay and Kathleen Fernandez-Vander Kaay

In writing and marketing our book The Anatomy of Fear: Conversations with Cult Horror and Science-Fiction Filmmakers, we discovered that there’s little to be done about the niche popularity of the horror, science fiction, and fantasy genres. Occasionally, something like Lord of the Rings or The Walking Dead connects with the zeitgeist, but more often than not it is the individual project that benefits rather than the subgenre overall. Luckily for the horror genre, however, there is a time of year when people embrace it. From the second week of October until Halloween night, people are a little more friendly towards the creepy and macabre, and even normally uptight friends and family are willing to watch and read and go to Halloween Horror Nights and haunted houses.

But what about science fiction? There is no time of the year when people’s thoughts turn naturally to malevolent robots or genetic manipulation; there is no color that the leaves can turn that reminds us of time travel or spaceships. Halloween gets a full three weeks of scariness, so what about sci-fi?
