Horror Headlines: Wednesday, November 26th, 2008

One more day till Thanksgiving here folks, and that means one more day to enter our contest for Amok Time "Day of the Dead" figures. Just click on that link above to check that out. We will be back on Friday with not only the winner's names, but Pete's comic book column and possibly a review as well. Hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday.- The Bloody Good Horror Crew

This is the poster for that indie film "Donkey Punch" we've been talking about here for a while now. Eh, it's alright. Although I would have gone for a more literal interpretation, but that probably would have gotten it banned from theaters.

Holy crap this is cool. This is a "motion poster" for "Terminator: Salvation Begins" that will be showing up in select foreign sites. Be warned, it auto-plays and the audio is pretty loud, so hit that volume button!

Official site for the indie film "Death Stop Holocaust". And now, there's a new trailer for you to check out in addition to the old one. I'm told they're shooting to have a cut of the film done early next year, so hopefully we'll be seeing this one soon.

Madonna's brother is going to direct his first feature, a horror film called "Twist". Not sure if it's about how hideous his sister looks these days, but it probably should be.

In Real People News: 

Wanna see an X-ray of a pair of car keys stuck in an infant's eye? Um... Happy Thanksgiving?

If you take the horrors of teen angst and combine them with the Japanese ritual of honorable suicide called "Seppuku", well I guess you have a pretty terrible emo song. You also have this disturbing story.

WHAT THE HELL IS THAT. God damn that thing gives me the willies. It's like a combination of the "Cloverfield" monster and the aliens from "Independence Day"... and it lives in the ocean. Happy swimming.

On this day in history: 

1865: Lewis Carroll sends the manuscript for the psychedelic novel "Alice in Wonderland" to his 12 year old special friend Alice Liddell. (Incidentally Carroll, born Charles Dodgson, had a thing for very young girls, frequently photographing them nude.)

HEROES 3.10 "THE ECLIPSE"

The title for last night's episode was "The Eclipse". There were two other working titles- "Longest Freaking Eclipse Ever" and "Reset Button". Just kidding.

The first half of 'the episode was basically a set up for the scenarios the Heroes would be in, the moment the eclipse took away their powers. The second half was how they reacted when their powers were gone.

Guns n' Roses--Chinese Democracy review

Thomas Wolfe wrote a modernist novel called “You Can’t Go Home Again.” Normally, I wouldn’t mention that here, but I think that’s the best way I can sum up my reaction to Guns n’ Roses’ (read: Axl Rose’s) much ballyhooed new opus, “Chinese Democracy.”

Reggie Bannister

On Thanksgiving Day, MonstersHD is having a "Thanksgiving Day of the Dead" promotion, and as part of that they are streaming two films live from their website. The first is the genre classic "Day of the Dead", and the second is Robert Kurtzman's 2005 zombie film "The Rage". The latter happens to star genre vet Reggie Bannister, most well known for his 4 appearances in the "Phantasm" series. Being a huge fan, I had to take the opportunity to interview him when it arose. The following is what came out of that conversation.

We've got to all hang together and keep this genre vital.

So what have you been up to lately?

We've been busy. Got a project shooting right now that we're co-producing. And then we just came out of a Halloween Haunted attraction thing that we put on in our little mountain community. But that's good to be busy when this is your day job.

So you do Haunted Houses?
