In addition to that, Sitges has commissioned some fairly well known directors to make fake trailers for viral promotion purposes, and this one for "Exorcist V" by [REC] director Jaume Balaguero is pretty freaking sweet.

Picture from the Scifi Channel's remake of "The Children of the Corn". I wish every remake were made for Scifi, so when it was released it would just be ignored and fade into the night like the shit-stain that it is. Okay that was kind of harsh, but you know what I mean.

The trailer for "Teen Zombies in Love" is actually a lot better than you would imagine from the title. That doesn't change the fact that Mark's head is exploding somewhere right now however.

This trailer for "Fear(s) of the Dark" is the scariest thing I've seen all week. The project was made by 6 of France's leading graphic designers, and features traditional black and white animation. Of course there's also the yellows, but I suspect that will just be urine running down the pant legs of the audience members. Seriously though, WATCH THE TRAILER.

So apparently, you can have sex with a car. And here I always thought that was just a cheeky joke. The picture at the link proves I was wrong.

If the Saudi government weren't so bat-shit crazy, I might be inclined to agree with them that Mickey Mouse is "one of Satan's Soldiers". Just wait until someone finally rips the copyrights to him from Walt Disney's cold dead hands, when we'll finally see what Lloyd Kaufman would do with Mickey. Now that would be unwholesome.

If you're in Poland and are a sex offender, they're going to take your balls. Sorry, that's just the price you pay for being a pedophile in a former Soviet bloc country.

On this day in history: 

1908: Thomas E. Selfridge becomes the world's first airplane fatality when the craft he's co-piloting with Orville Wright crashes near Fort Meyer, Virginia. An untested propeller ripped apart the plane's structure, causing it to nosedive from an altitude of 75 feet.

Fringe 1.02

Hey guys, Eric here with your weekly coverage of J.J. Abram's "Fringe". As it's a complicated show with a lot going on, I've been struggling to come up with some sort of coherent structure to my episode breakdowns. After putting some thought into it I think I've found what I'm looking for. So check it out and let me know what you think.


The Gist:

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles 2.02

"Automatic for the People"

Kicking off the episode, a naked Zack Ward appears in a time bubble, wounded and bloody. Stealing clothes from a nearby hobo, he proceeds to locate the Connor clan and delivers a cryptic warning before he croaks. "Greenway", "Power Plant", "2 Days"; and that folks, is the main plot for the second episode of season 2!

Episode 41 - "Postal"


What you are about to hear is the sound of the entire crew losing all the respect they had left for me.

So, rumor has it that when Paramount finally releases a worthy "Friday the 13th" box set in February to coincide with the release of the remake, it will contain the infamous "unrated" edition of the first film that has never been released in the states. To my knowledge the only place it exists are on a Japanese laserdisc and an older UK release, and it contains some extra gore as well as alternate takes of certain scenes. Should be interesting to see how these DVD's turn out, since the last set was such a disappointment. And while I'm at it, is it too much to ask for original box art? Seriously?

The dude who directed the original Thai film "Shutter", is on to his next film and it's about watching a horror movie, then going home and experiencing dejavu because you're reliving scenes from the film you just watched. There's a bit more at the link but, I couldn't decide if this was the best or stupidest idea ever so, I stopped reading halfway through.

Extended clip from "The Day The Earth Stood Still", starring Keanu Reeves and Jennifer Connelly. Part of me thinks this film has a lot of potential as a remake, and part of me thinks it's going to blow donkey balls. What do you guys think?

Loads of stills from "Repo: A Genetic Opera", which gets a limited release on November 7th. Also, word that as of September 30th, the soundtrack will be available for digital purchase. And no, it's not "FREE" you greedy bastards. I just hope and pray it features a song from the band Bill Moseley has with Buckethead called "Cornbugs". I in no way, shape, or form made that up. Myspace at the link.

Audrina Partride from the MTV show "The Hills" has joined the cast of "The House on Sorority Row" remake. What, you didn't think I'd let you'd get away without making you homicidal this morning, did you?

In Real People News: 

Somebody needs to get Jake Roberts some help, like NOW. I hesitated to post this, but then I thought, what kind of a parasitic website owner would I be if I didn't?

A Vegetarian diet can shrink your brain, further proving that Hippies don't know what the hell they're talking about.

Russian Satanists have more back hair than any other kind of Satanists. It's true, look it up.

On this day in history: 

1999: Disney Infoseek executive Patrick Naughton travels to the Santa Monica pier to meet a 13-year-old girl he was attempting to seduce via an Internet chatroom called "dad&daughtersex." The girl was actually an undercover cop. Disney fires Naughton almost immediately after the news breaks; the executive later pleads guilty to the charge of crossing state lines to have sex with a minor.
