Horror often works because of its outlandishness, from David Lynch to Rob Zombie. But there is another level upon which horror works well; the level wherein there might be something supernatural involved, but the gritty realism and focus on character in the story refuses to allow the audience to dismiss the project as simply a “scary movie.” It is in the latter category that you will find most of the films of filmmaker Eric Red.
Eric Red, who directed "Body Parts" and is apparently not a Viking, has been picked to direct the big screen adaptation of "Dead Of Night". The film is based on a book by the same name and follows a small town cop trying to fend off a zombie outbreak. Red will also be writing the script for the movie which I assume will also have no Vikings in it. I know, I'm disappointed too.
"Midnight Special" is a really great Creedence Clearwater Revival huh? Good now that we've got that out of the way let's talk about Kirsten Dunst who has just been cast in a movie with the same name. It's about a father who finds out his 8 year old son has supernatural powers. CCR has nothing to do with the movie and as far as I can tell observations I made here are in no way connected. You're welcome.
George A. Romero has wrapped up writing the script for "The Zombie Autopsies" and is shipping it out to studios in the hopes it will be his next directing project. Based on a book by the same name the film focuses on a group of doctors trying to find the cure to a zombie people disease on a small island. Do they still call it "zombie people disease"? I never know what the term is suppose to be these days. Romero kind of looks like Stan Lee doesn't he? Let's move on,
It's the end of summer and not a damn thing is going on so here's an "Evil Dead" themed bikini that you can buy on Etsy. Because who doesn't want a giant face with spiked teeth on their cooch.

If you need a ride home from the police station it's a terrible idea to steal a police car. If you can find a ambulance though by all means go for it.
Ah Missouri. Land of the... well I don't really know to be honest. But I do know you can no longer wear a Obama mask if you're a rodeo clown there. Cause apparently that was a problem.
