Monstrous Nature (a werewolf film)

I just posted about this film over at my magazine's blog, but I wanted to share it with everyone here as well. A very talented film maker and friend of mine, Jason Cuadrado, is putting the finishing touches on what promises to be one hell of a flick.

"Monstrous Nature" is the story of "a nun who gets kidnapped and wakes up in the deep woods handcuffed to a disturbed man. He makes his plans for her known by the light of the full moon, which tests her faith as well as her nerve."

Hope everyone has a good weekend. The BGH crew will be recording a podcast episode on Sunday, so you can definitely expect our return next week. Also, Hurricane Ike is getting ready for a direct hit on where I live on perhaps Tuesday, so things may get a little hairy for me here next week. Rest assured that should my connection be down, Casey will carry on valiantly in my absence. With that said, on with the news!

I read this original rumor a few days back but figured I'd wait for confirmation. Well, we appear to have that now, as word comes down that that two co-executive producers on "The Office" have been hired to write a script for "Ghostbusters 3", with the intention that all 4 original 'busters will be returning. No casting is official as of yet, but it would be hard to imagine that they would go through with this without the whole original crew involved.

Season 2 of "The Sarah Connor Chronicles" debuts Monday night on Fox. I've heard the show's pretty good, but I can't get over the fact that everyone they cast looks so pretty. I'll stick to my hot, rugged, milfy Linda Hamilton, thank you very much.

In Real People News: 

You don't have to be an animal lover to think that this story about a heroine addicted elephant is the saddest thing you'll read all day. Excuse me while I locate my razor blade.

Gangs in Brazil are feeding their enemies to giant crocodile like lizards to dispose of the bodies. Hey, you've got to work with what you've got I guess.

Japanese police receive a frantic call about a corpse, tied up and wrapped in plastic in the forest. They dispatch an entire team of murder investigators, who arrive at the scene, untie the body, and discover that it's just a "Real Doll" that "showed signs of repeated use". It's at this point that Nelson from the Simpsons ran by and said, "haha!".

There's a story circulating today that Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin tried to have books banned from libraries during her tenure as Governor of Alaska because they offended her Christian sensibilities, and that she threatened the librarian with being fired if she didn't comply. I'll let you make your own judgments about that, but no doubt the language had something to do with "the gays and all their gayness".

On this day in history: 

1975: Manson Family member Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme almost assassinates President Gerald Ford with a .45 automatic in Sacramento, California. But Fromme is tackled by a Secret Service agent before she can remember to rack a round into the firing chamber.

Cinematic Titanic Presents: The Wasp Woman (REVIEW)

1999 brought upon us the end of an eleven year era; the end of “Mystery Science Theater 3000”. Beloved by many, the show brought to life the art of ‘riffing’ to many a B-Movie that most viewers would never had bothered watching if it wasn’t for Jole and the Bots. Cut to nine years later, and now the original gang is back with “Cinematic Titanic”!

Comics Creepshow 5: The Walking Dead

I really wanted to hold off reviewing THE WALKING DEAD, after reading my previous entries and finding that I have yet to trash a book. It has all been high praise for the past month, and writing about Robert Kirkman’s zombie epic was just going to be more ass kissing to the creators, and lots and lots of “this is why you should be reading this book” moments. Unfortunately, whenever there is a holiday on a Monday, New Comic Book Day gets pushed back to Thursdays.

New poster and theatrical dates for "My Name Bruce", Bruce Campbell's ode to the three Amigos about what happens when a small town mistakes him for a real demon fighter. THANK GOD they got rid of the original poster. Go ahead and google it, if you've got the stomach for it. This one is much closer to where it should be. Can't wait to see this.

Sony is picking up David Fincher's remake of "Heavy Metal", after it was dropped by Paramount over a dispute concerning Fincher's current project "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button". As the story goes, Paramount wants Fincher to cut 20 minutes from the film, he refuses, so they refused to work with him on any future projects. So I have no idea what this means for Button's future, but it does mean that "Heavy Metal" has found a new home. Now let's just hope it turns out as amazing as that South Park episode spoofing it.

There is a video floating around the internet that contains footage from the first teaser from "The Wolf Man" starring Benizio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins. The twist though is that it was filmed at a convention on a handlheld camera and it has no sound. If you really really really feel the need to see it in that state, click here. If you're like me and can wait, rest assured that I'll provide you with the proper link when the time comes. You've been warned.

Mark Millar will be providing a short outline for a "Wanted 2" sequel, and makes it sound like it's only a matter of time before the project gets greenlit. My only requirement for this to happen is for someone to please get Angelina Jolie a sandwich. I mean Jesus people, look at this and tell me that's not the grossest thing you've ever seen. Okay maybe not the grossest, but the girl still needs to put some meat on her bones.

Guillermo Del Toro is officially "booked" until 2017. Not sure when he's going to have time to scratch his balls, but I guess swimming in his pool filled with money might help ease the pain.

In Real People News: 

18 year old boyfriend strangles 17 year old girlfriend's mother to death, gives his girlfriend earplugs first so she doesn't have to hear the proceedings. Wow, is it just me, or is that strangely considerate for someone about to choke the crap out of an old lady?

Apparently New Zealand is having just as much trouble with youth violence as our UK brothers are these days, and now the little bastards have nunchakus. You seriously have to read the source on this one, the mental picture will keep you entertained for hours.

There's a very clear reason why you shouldn't hide in a porta-potty when trying to escape from a crime scene... because the people you robbed can find you and tip it over. And so ends today's lesson in common sense.

On this day in history: 

2000: During a campaign stop in Naperville, Illinois, Presidential candidate George W Bush turns to running mate Dick Cheney and says, "There's Adam Clymer, major league asshole from the New York Times." Cheney responds, "Oh yeah, he is, big-time." Unbeknownst to the men, their comments are transmitted clearly to the television news feed. Rather than offer a mea culpa to Clymer, Bush later issues this non-apology: "I regret that a private comment I made to the vice-presidential candidate made it onto the public airwaves. I regret everybody heard what I said." Awww, how sincere.
