Why do we love remaking classic horror monsters?
Why do we re-imagine classic horror monsters?
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude, we head into comics where DC is exploring their universe from a different perspective and they finally open up about the Batman controversy. Level one wraps up with a talk about a Marvel writer that was recently fired and what the fallout from that has been.
Heading into level two, the creation of Red Dead Redemption 2 is causing some huge issues in the video game industry. Sony is finally breaking their silence about the next Playstation and we’re hearing rumors about a Nintendo Switch 2.0.
Over in the world of entertainment, Jordan Peele is working on an adaptation of the horror book “Lovecraft Country”. NBC is developing a series based in the world of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and the BBC and Netflix are looking to create an all-new Dracula story.
Our epilogue this week is about remaking classic horror movie monsters.
As always, we appreciate all our adventurers who listen to the show every week and we look forward to your feedback on what we discuss! (firstname.lastname@example.org!)
