Maniac Cop 2 Shirts and Pins Collection: From Cavitycolors: "Hey Fiends!

This Thursday, we're bringing you our officially licensed Maniac Cop 2 collection!

Written by Larry Cohen (The Stuff) and directed by William Lustig (Maniac), Part 2 of the series is my personal favorite entry in the series. A 90's cult classic in the truest sense, it's just so satisfying to see a much more monstrous Matt Cordell wreak havoc on the streets of New York City. We couldn't be more excited to work with top notch artists on this release, including Devon Whitehead, Jason Edmiston, Shane Murphy, and Matt Skiff. All art is officially licensed, and approved by William Lustig himself for what might

Film Review: ‘The Reagan Show’

Film Review: ‘The Reagan Show’
The Reagan Show” is a documentary with a very catchy angle. It purports to be about how the presidency of Ronald Reagan brought the techniques of show business and mass-media image-making into the center of politics — not a novel insight, to be sure, but one that comes off as timelier than ever. (You could argue that what Ronald Reagan started Donald Trump perfected.) “The Reagan Show,” unfortunately, isn’t the movie that it pretends to be. It’s a glib and scattered exposé, the sort of ersatz thesis film that invites you to chuckle at the sight of Reagan doing multiple takes of a campaign commercial while flubbing the name “Sununu” over and over again. The inclusion of this vintage “feed” footage is supposed to be an image-making joke (look, the president was just a glorified TV hack!) as well as a tweak of Reagan’s shaky mental abilities (and he couldn’t even get John Sununu’s

Nicolas Cage Wanted for Ronald Reagan Biopic

Nicolas Cage Wanted for Ronald Reagan Biopic
Back in April, we reported that Will Ferrell had agreed to star in and produce Reagan, where the actor was to play U.S. President Ronald Reagan as he slips into dementia during his second term in the Oval Office. While we never heard any further updates on that project, Will Ferrell dropped out after the late President's daughter Patti Davis called complained, calling Ferrell's decision to appear a "heartless move". While that project seems to be dead in the water, today we have word that Nicolas Cage may play Ronald Reagan in a much different movie about the former 80s President.

Page Six reports that Nicolas Cage has been offered the lead role of Ronald Reagan in a currently untitled project that will, "show the conservative president in a flattering light, infuriating the liberal Hollywood crowd." This report didn't have any further details on this project, but they did

Ronald Reagan Biopic Draws ‘Soul Surfer’ Director Sean McNamara

Ronald Reagan Biopic Draws ‘Soul Surfer’ Director Sean McNamara
Soul SurferSean McNamara has signed to helm a Ronald Reagan biopic that’s set to start production next spring.

The independent movie, titled “Reagan,” will cover Reagan’s life from his teenage years through his becoming the 40th President in 1981 as seen through the eyes of a Kgb agent assigned to follow him during his presidency of the Screen Actors Guild between 1947 and 1952. Reagan testified in 1947 as a friendly witness at the start of hearings by the House Unamerican Activities Committee, which led to the creation of the Hollywood Blacklist.

Reagan was governor of California from 1967 to 1975 and easily won two terms as President. He died in 2004.

Space Cowboys” writer Howie Klausner is writing the script for the $25 million project. Mark Joseph is producing and Ralph Winter is executive producing.
