Schools Out Forever (this is what it looks like when the 2000AD comic-book crew create horror movies) (trailer).

Rebellion, the crew behind the classic 2000AD comic-book, have only gone out and created a horror movie!

All new stories started in the last extra large issue of ‘2000AD’ and they continue in this one, though it’s back to the standard 32 pages.

Here’s a special extra large edition of ‘’2000AD’ that costs an extra pound.

First up is Judge Dredd with a […]
