Hell Is For Children

We saw Pat Benatar tonight, she and Neil Giraldo still have it! It was an awesome show, I just wish I would have brought my camera!

Trailer Park of Terror

"A New Genre Classic" my ass!
Kind of boring, Trace Adkins as the devil was one of the best parts and that's not saying much. 1 and a half out of 4, and I'm being nice.

From Greg

I got an email tonight with only this picture in it. I thought my mom or my sister had sent me an old picture, because the date on the picture was from 11/09/2006. So I replied back asking if they had carved the pumpkins, and the email came right back because of a bad address. That's when I noticed the email address it had come from was my mom’s old address; she hadn’t had that address in a couple years. So I text messaged my sister to ask about it, and she told me my mom wanted to see it because neither my mom nor my sister had ever sent me a picture of jack-o-lanterns. I forwarded it to her. My sister wrote me back and told me that my mom thinks her boyfriend Greg must have sent it back in 2006, two days before he died. That is so crazy that it would show up in my inbox two and a half years later, from a closed email account. I wish I would have gotten his email way back then so I could have written Greg back about his pumpkins.
We miss you

Sick Day

So, I've been sick for about two weeks now. I went to the clinic finally yesterday, got some antibiotics and cough medicine, and they told me to take today off if I could, so I did. I got to watch a few movies while laying around in bed today.

I hadn’t seen Quarantine until today. I liked it, good story, and a couple of good scares. If you haven’t seen it I would suggest you check it out. It’s shot shaky-cam ala’ Cloverfield, but it’s perfect and works for the story. I’d give Quarantine a strong 3 and a half out of four.

I had seen a trailer online for Midnight Movie and it looked interesting, but hadn’t heard anything else about it. It was ok. Cool premise, mediocre acting, but well made for a low budget film. I love all the 80’s slasher films (this was made in 2008, but has that 80's feel to it) so I’m biased, but I kind of liked it. It was corny, campy, and not very suspenseful, but it was a fun way to waste an hour and a half. I wouldn’t say go out and buy it, but it was worth a rental, or maybe it will show up in the $5 movie bin at your local “box” store.
2 and ¼ out of 4, just ok.

What can you say about a werewolf movie that is 74 years old? Werewolf of London is a little slow in parts, but I enjoyed it. The two drunken old ladies were hilarious punching each other’s lights out. The werewolf transformations were cheesy even for 1935, but they served their purpose. I kept imaging what it must have been like to go and see Werewolf of London in a theater in 1935, how scared people might have been, how cutting edge the effects were at the time, and how dressed up people would have been to go to the theater. You’ve got to love the classic Universal horror films.
2 out of 4 for this case of "Werewolfery"

Dark Fairies

One, Two, Freddys Coming For You . . .

So according to several reliable sources a new "Nightmare on Elm Street" film is on its way! IMDb says "Gearing up for an April or May production start."

Smells like new "Nightmare" for Nirvana director

It's in the last line of this article.


I'm excited, but it better have Robert Englund in it! Just hit him up with some Botox injections for his pre-burned scenes. Don't let The Captain down Platinum Dunes, or you'll have a whole new horror movie to deal with!


I made these two Obamicons.

The Haunting in Connecticut

We saw this trailer before Friday the 13th and it looks pretty creepy, and is suppossed to be based on a true story. I'm glad to see that Virginia Madsen is in it, I think some of her better characters have been in horror movies.

The Descent 2

The original movie was so claustrophobic and tense, I loved it. This looks promising to be as equally claustrophobic, hopefully it will live up to the original.

This movie looks to be pretty funny!

Against the advice of locals and police

Against the advice of locals and police, Clay scours the eerie woods surrounding Crystal Lake for his missing sister. But the rotting cabins of an abandoned summer camp are not the only things he finds. Hockey-masked killer Jason Voorhees lies in wait for a chance to use his razor-sharp machete on Clay and the group of college students who have come to the forest to party.

Doesn’t get much simpler than that, I can’t wait till tonight. We’re off to the Silver Moon Drive-In to see a double feature of Gran Torino and Friday the 13th, and for only four bucks each person!

I Want My Mummy

I started my own little personal marathon of old Universal horror and Sci-Fi movies. I watched "Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man" (1943, Lon Chaney Jr. & Bela Lugosi), and "The Mummy" (1932, Boris Karloff) last night. I'm enjoying myself so far, hadn't seen the Mummy since I was a young teenager, and had never seen "Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man". I can't wait till I'm finished with this math class I'm taking, so I have time for the more important things in life, like watching monster movies.

Paper Napkins

I forgot I had this sitting on my scanner. I have a full color paper cup too that I need to figure out how to scan. These are from the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, in October they hold an event called "Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party".
