The Gate (REVIEW)

I was rifling through the bargain bin at Walmart the other day when I came across this lost gem on DVD. For only 5 dollars I knew I couldn't pass it up. As I began to think back on my own memories of the film, I realized that it would be the perfect choice to conjure up from the depths of the 80's for the site. So with that I bring you my review of "The Gate."

Horror Headlines 7/11/08

Today sees the release of Guillermo Del toro's "Hellboy II". If you see it early, stop by and tell us what you think!

On October 7th you can own a 3-Disc special edition of the worst movie ever made. The film is Rob Zombie's "Halloween" of course (okay, so I may be exaggerating a bit). The most ridiculous thing about this story? It will sport a 5 HOUR MAKING OF DOCUMENTARY. That shows a level of megalomania that leaves me speechless. Literally... without speech.

The principal creative team behind "Tremors" is prepping another monster movie (in an urban setting) called Night Crew. It will eventually be directed by "Tremors" director Ron Underwood. Also in this story comes the news (to me) that Underwood directed both "Tremors" and "The Adventures of Pluto Nash". That sentence just confuses me, so I'm going to move on now.

David Fincher's remake of the acid inspired cartoon "Heavy Metal", is being shopped around to new studios after being dropped by Paramount. Paramount apparently deemed the project "too risque for mainstream audiences", which officially makes me 10 times more excited about it.

In Real People News: 

Two Floridians got hitched at a waffle house recently. And, shockingly, one of them was named Bubba. Hilarious inbred pictures at the link.

It's summer time so that can only mean one thing, seagull attacks!. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the assholes I always see feeding them on the beach. Nah, that can't be it.

Wow, apparently Jesse Jackson really wants to cut Barack Obama's nuts off. That's a pretty severe threat if you ask me. What ever happened to good old fashioned noogies?

The local Fox affiliate in Washington DC has posted video on their website of a firefighter blasting a firecracker out of his ass while inside the fire station. I'm not sure what's worse, the stupidity it would take to stick explosives in your ass, or the degree to which Fox will post ANYTHING as news.

On this day in history: 

1945: For the first time, Napalm powder is mixed with gasoline and sprayed on live human beings. This (of course) was done by the U.S. Army against the Japanese Army, in the Philippines.

Guillermo del Toro's top 5 ghost movies

Even though this whole list is a shameless ploy to plug "The Orphanage", it's still a pretty tight grouping. I also have no qualms with plugging "The Orphanage". That was a great movie and I will fight anyone who disagrees.

1. The Uninvited (1944)
2. Kuroneko (1968)/ Onibaba (1964)
3. The Haunting (1963)
4. The Innocents (1961)
5. The Changeling (1979)

Burn Notice Season 2 Starts Tonight

So I was lounging around today before going to work and I noticed there was a "Burn Notice" marathon on the USA channel. I haven't thought about the show in a while, but I'm actually pretty excited because season 2 debuts tonight.

King: "Go Small for Big Scares"

When he that is nameth Stephen King, speaketh unto us about that which is horrifying... well, we should probably listen. I mean, the man has written some pretty scary books, amirite?
