ATTN: BGH Gamers!

This weekend, I decided to give into the hype and purchase "Left 4 Dead" for the XBOX 360 (my system of choice, if you haven't noticed). Although I wasn't sure what to expect from the demo, I've decided that I made a great decision. However, I've also decided that playing alone, while fun, will get old, and I have no interest in playing against/with people I don't know.

Horror Headlines: Monday December 29th, 2008

In reaction to fan uproar about a report that Mrs Voorhees (Nana Visitor) and young Jason would be cut from Platinum Dunes "Friday the 13th" remake, producer Brad Fuller recently announced that both characters would indeed be in the final cut of the film. This of course is all part of their "make you love us even though we're remaking one of your favorite films ever" campaign... that I have to begrudgingly admit is kind of working.

The official site for the "My Bloody Valentine" remake is up and running and apparently in full effect. Considering that we're little more than two weeks away from the release, this seems kind of late to the game, no?

There is a theme running through all these stills for "The Unborn". Well, three themes actually, Odette Yustman screams a lot, she needs someone to buy her an umbrella, and this movie has a lot of "scary" kids in it. In fact, all of the "ooh look at those creepy kids" pictures are starting to sour me on the whole thing. Kids are never scary unless it's on the context of "hey, I missed my period and we're going to have KIDS". So unless your movie is about that, get rid of them.

Thomas Jane to write/direct a horror-thriller set in World War II titled "Devil's Commandos". I think a vein just exploded in my head from all that awesomeness.

In Real People News: 

How is it that I made a super sweet mix CD for Christmas this year and missed the song "Barack The Magic Negro? I guess if I was friends with Chip Saltsman - candidate for the Republican National Committee Charimanship - he would have emailed me that hotness like a year ago.

CIA bribes Afghan tribal chieftains for support with Viagra, among other things. I've been sitting here for 10 minutes trying to come up with a pun here, and the best I can do is "Taliboner". Feel free to humiliate me with your own in the comments.

On this day in history: 

1991: Jack Ruby's pistol, used to kill Lee Harvey Oswald, sells at auction at Christie's for $220,000.

Real People News: Man Shoots Movie Talker

Eric may or may not have been thinking about including this in his next headline post but it was too good for me to wait on...

A man angry that a family was talking during a movie threw popcorn at the son and then shot the father in the arm, according to police in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
James Joseph Cialella was charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and weapons charges.

Comics Creepshow 21: Best Comics of 2008

Christmas and Hanuka over, and if you want to know what the song is playing in the back of your head, its ‘The Final Countdown’ by 80’s super group Europe, rocking out for the final moments of 2008. On every web page you can pull up there are top 5 and top 10 lists for events of 2008. I know which one you consider the most important, and it is a good thing you came here. Here is your list of the top 5 horror comics that came out in 2008:


Apocalypse Mixtape IX: You Better Watch Out

Even as the four horsemen draw near and we shift from a money-based economy to one founded on gladiator-style combat for the pleasure of Tina Turner, trying to stop the holiday season is like trying to stop Black Friday shoppers at a Long Island Wal-Mart. If you've still got some last-minute shopping to do for a little one, may we suggest you give them a gift that's both educational and terrifying, Baby's First Mythos. The alphabet, numbers and the elder gods, all in one book?
