Scream Queens - Slasher TV series with Jamie Lee Curtis

From the creators of "Glee" and "American Horror Story" comes the new TV series "Scream Queens", starring the queen of all scream queens: Jamie Lee Curtis. I'm a huge fan of her horror movies "Halloween", "Prom Night", "Terror Train" and slasher movies in general, so I look forward to this show.

"Scream Queens" also stars Emma Roberts from "Scream 4" and co-stars pop icons Ariana Grande and Nick Jonas. The series will premiere in September 2015 on Fox.

Trixie - Eighties disco-pop from Sweden

The Plastic Retro website has just received a new look on a new address. The previous artists are still in the database and I'm going to add new ones very soon, so stay tuned.

By the way, do you remember Swedish-Norwegian synthpop trio Trixie? They released an album in 1989 with amazing eighties dance-pop music, including singles such as "If You Walk Away" and the Per Gessle penned "From Head To Toe".

The band consisted of Ragnhild Røstad, Anders Eliasson and Michael Ellgren and I've created a new fan page on Plastic Retro dedicated to this amazing band. Check it out!

Full Throttle 20th Anniversary

Wow! I can't believe the 1995 video game "Full Throttle" turned twenty the other day. I used to love it as a kid and I still enjoy going back to the game from time to time.

The environments are cool and the characters so likable. Especially Ben the biker, voiced by Roy Conrad, and my personal favourite: Maureen "Mo" Corley, voiced by Kath Soucie.

I have so many great memories playing this classic LucasArts game. Check out this new video from IGN where they revisit the game in all its glory. I agree with them, this game needs to be remastered and reissued, like "Broken Sword" and "Monkey Island".

Please make it happen, Tim Schafer!
