31 Nights of Nightmares, Part 5: The Wrath of Mac Beauvais


Salutations to all you hairy full-moon mongrels from Derek Easley’s “31 Nights of Nightmares”, and I have some fresh reviews for you covering SyFy’s “Channel Zero: Candle Cove” (not perfect, but worth checking out as it is creepy and has a lot of potential) and the 2016 version of “Ghostbusters” (featuring entertaining scenes mixed in with numerous problems). But before I get that, I want to introduce you to my friend, entertainer Mac Beauvais (pronounced Bo-vay), who kind of lives and breathes horror and Halloween all year round!

31 Nights of Nightmares, Part 4: The Monstrous Alan Maxson


Hello to all you fiends, Derek Easley’s 31 Nights of Nightmares returns with a look at a horror documentary infused with politics called “Nightmares in Red White and Blue”, and then the movie that’ll make you keep your lamp on at night: “Lights Out”. But before we examine those films, I found a rampaging orc of man, a adaptable thespian who can morph into any monster you could imagine, creature actor Alan Maxson!


31 Nights of Nightmares, Part 3: The Revenge of Chrissy Lynn


Derek Easley’s 31 Nights of Nightmares is here again, with looks at “Scream Queens” on FOX (over-the-top fun), “Aftermath” on SyFy (interesting premise, but needs time to develop), and the film “Krampus” (which was delightful in every way!). But first, I caught up with my dear friend Chrissy Lynn Kyle, who is an amazing cosplayer (famous for her Catwoman & Rogue cosplays) and a talented makeup artist for film, viral web videos, and spooky live events. She gets in the Halloween spirit by covering her friends in blood and prosthetics, styling crazy natural hair and wigs, or conjuring spells as Mary Sanderson from “Hocus Pocus”.

31 Nights of Nightmares, Part 2: The Haunted Covered Bridge


Greetings once more to Derek Easley’s “31 Nights of Nightmares”! I certainly hope your October is as chilling as mine so far. In this installment, we’ll look at 2 new television pilots (one that is quite worthy, and one that is just fair) , a controversial horror art film (which is masterful and atrocious at the same time), and I’ll tell you about a scary real-life adventure I had on a haunted bridge up here in NorCal. So sit back, relax, and let the nightmares begin again!

31 Nights of Nightmares 2016, Part 1: American Horrorworld

Beyond the Marquee Celebrates it’s 5th Year!

Happy 5th Birthday to Us!

Happy 5th Birthday to Us!

I won’t say that I feel exactly like Captain James T Kirk today, but clearly I am taking a look back at what’s been our 5-year mission since launching Beyond the Marquee and I can’t help but feel a bit of a fun connection to a journey filled with mystery, exploration, laughter, tears, growth, change and Romulans. Ok, maybe not Romulans, but certainly a loyal, hard-working, creative, and colorful crew who took a chance and had a thirst for adventure into the vast unknown.

Today marks Beyond the Marquee’s 5th Anniversary on the Internet. And, although the intentions of what we envisioned the site to be when we created it have changed over the years, the site proudly still remains a growing presence in the world of Entertainment media. As we enter our quinquennial year (that means the 5 year mark, I had to look it up), we invite our Beyond the Marquee readers to take a step back over the past 1/2 decade with us, as we humbly call-out some of our favorite highlights and accomplishments from our time on the web.  We look forward to what the next 5 years may bring to Beyond the Marquee and its loyal fans.   – Steve Czarnecki
