Anyone who has been paying attention to the podcast lately, (or readers of Horror Hound) know that the latest issue has been on stands for about two weeks now. If you happen to pick it up, be sure to check out my article, on the first three films in the "Child's Play" franchise.
Carla Gugino has joined the cast of David Goyer's next picture, "Unborn". The story of "Unborn" is as follows, "a 19-year-old girl who is haunted by a dybbuk, the soul of a dead person barred from heaven, in the form of a young boy who perished in Auschwitz." In more important news... Carla Gugino is really, really hot.
I normally wouldn't be all that excited for a new survival horror game (they scare the piss out of me, so I stay away), but you should check out the trailer for "Obscure: The Aftermath"... mainly because it's actually coming out for the PS2! Yes, people, I'm in the dark ages. Check the trailers at the link, and watch for the game to be released on March 25th.
A review popped up today for "The Alphabet Killer", a film by Rob Schmidt ("Wrong Turn") about the killer of the same name from Rochester, NY. The production of the film actually managed to help capture the killer, but apparently that mojo didn't help with the final product. According to the review, "Missed potential, bad scripting and a general sense of standard fare are the keywords here." No word yet on a wide release.
In Real People News:
Next time you complain about air travel, think of the case of this woman, who woke up on an American Airlines flight to find the passenger sitting next to her masturbating into her hair. I get yelled at for leaving my seat upright upon landing, and no one notices this? Ya, that sounds about right.
Due to taxes intended on curbing binge drinking, it is now cheaper to buy a line of Coke than buy a beer in the UK. Congratulations, Britian, on being just as retarded as the US when it comes to curbing substance abuse.
On this day in history:
1314: Jacques de Molay, Grand Master of the Knights Templar, is burned at the stake during the final purge of the Templars in France. Among the things de Molay admitted to the Inquisitor panel, were the obligation of Templars to deny Christ when they joined, and a sacrament that involved spitting on a crucifix. What really happened was the Catholic church had grown weary of how powerful the Templars had become, so they were forced to admit blasphemy, so the church could BBQ them.
When it comes to video games, I'm normally a day late and a dollar short. I have a hard time paying a full $40-$60 for a new game. I just lack the attention span to justify that much money when I know I'm going to play it heavy for a couple days, then forget about it. (See: Super Mario Galaxy)
