antichrist

The subjects of pregnancy, birth, and motherhood have proved to be one of the most fertile grounds (pardon the pun) in horror fiction in both longevity and richness. They are tropes that relishes in some of the most drastic of physical changes brought upon the human body while also confronting or affirming how our culture views women and regards the female body. These thematic and ideological questions become more complicated when translating these stories to the visual and auditory world of cinematic representations, including television.

BGH Goes to HorrorHound

This weekend the Bloody Good Horror team will be making its yearly pilgrimage to the Indianapolis Marriott to take in all the "Terminator"-related highs and lows of HorrorHound Weekend 2012.

The first trailer for Lars Von Trier's new end of the world flick "Melancholia" has hit the tubes and much to my surprise it looks fairly un-hammer-to-the-penis-like. Yes that women who took a hammer to William Defeo's penis in "Antrichrist" is in this movie, so you keep thinking about it, but there's nothing to lead me to believe that's going to happen again. God I hope that doesn't happen again.

Speaking of Willem Dafoe and his lumbering manbits, they'll both be in the upcoming big screen adaptation of Dean Kootz's "Odd Thomas". The story focuses on a cook who's able to speak to the dead. Defoe plays a police chief who knows the young lad's secret. I have no clue if Defoe's member will be playing a different role.

It looks as if Rob Hall's "Fear Clinic" mini-series will be making it's way to the big screen, and Danielle Harris and Robert Englund are both on board for the magic. For those of you who aren't familiar with the series or Rob Hall's spiky hair, it follows a group of patients who come to a clinic in order to cure the phobias that run their lives. Much like the god awful fear I have of Willem Dafoe's privates. Let's keep this going!

Jessica Biel his apparently been offered a role in the upcoming "Total Recall" remake. No confirmation on which role she's been offered but chances are it's one of the two leads. She doesn't seem like the kind of girl who would be into playing that big women who has an exploding head or the three boobed hooker. Then again what do I know, I'm still focused on Willem Dafoe's flim flam. Happy Monday folks!

The best and worst horror films of 2010, and what to look forward to in 2011.

We celebrate Easter the right way, by discussing Lars Von Trier's "Antichrist". Prepare your naughty bits, ladies and gents.

This Sunday is Easter my good friends an on that holy day the gang will be sitting down to discuss Lars von Trier's 2009 controversial flick "Antichrist". I swear this wasn't intentional.

For those of you not familiar with the film it stars Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg as a couple who retreat to a cabin in the woods after the death of their young son. Needless to say shit gets really weird and apparently there's a talking wolf at some point.

Rejoice fine people, you can now see Willem Dafoe's bare ass without having to leave the comfort of your own home. In other words "Antichrist" is now streaming on Netflix. And based on John's review this week it's worth a view.

The always reliable Onion News Network has the surprising news that Lars von Trier's directorial follow-up to "Antichrist" is a new series of ads encouraging people to visit his native Denmark. Here's a handy traveler's tip: book your trip for the harsh winter months if you want to really enjoy all the soul-crushing despair Denmark offers, not to mention the lovely Christmas markets.
