The Bloody Good Horror Top 10 Horror Movies of 2012!

Cabin in the Woods - The Best of 2012

For the third year in a row, the editorial team here at Bloody Good Horror has put their brains together to define the best in horror for the year. In 2012, we tried something different, with each writer submitting a ballot, which then became a ranked order of their votes. These votes were calculated (1st = 10pts, 10th = 1pt) and the films were ordered in terms of points earned. With each film you'll see how many total votes it received, as well as how many points it earned. There were 12 total voters, so a perfect score would be 120.

I'm seriously considering buying a "Resident Evil: Retribution" poster online after seeing the film yesterday. Just thought I'd give you fair warning as to where my frame of mind is these days. Speaking of "RE: Retribution", Paul W.S. Anderson's candy coated confusion machine topped the box office this weekend, raking in $21 million. That's $5 million less than the last film opened to, and the smallest opening since the original. However, keep in mind that these films have done absolutely BONKERS business overseas.

Here's what the new Robocop looks like. I'll save you the time it takes to click... it's not even silver! What the hell are we doing here, people...

Anchor Bay has acquired Rob Zombie's "Lords of Salem" after its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival last week. Thank God they use the acronym TIFF, because typing the entire name makes me want to quit life.

Check out The monsters you missed in "Cabin in the Woods". I made my wife watch this on Bluray with me last night. She just looked confused. Me on the other hand? I'm calling it now, horror film of the year. Everyone else should go home and feel bad about themselves.

Here's the new Norman Bates that will star in A&E's "Bates Motel". I will continue not watching horror on television because it will always be terrible.

Tom Savini's "Night of the Living Dead" remake from 1990 is coming to Bluray. If you haven't seen it, you should, it's pretty fantastic.

In Real People News: 

Turns out, this girl's aunt did not sexually assault her in a satanic ritual in 1994. She was pretty excited to hear her admit that, considering she's been in prison for it ever since. Whoopsies!

The 11 drunkest presidents in US history. Ah, the good old days...

What we're watching this weekend: Dispatches from podcast land

You may be wondering why you can no longer access "BGH Classics" - where we sold back episodes of the show for 99 cents - on the site any more. Well, we caught wind that the service we were using was not going to be available for much longer, so our fancy business guy Jon had to take time to do some research and find a new outlet to make that stuff available. He did eventually find one, but we're still in the process of re-uploading and organizing everything. My guess is in the next week or two, BGH Classics will be made available to the masses once again.

Clips: "The Cabin in the Woods" conjures "The Evil Dead"

A new clip has been released for the highly anticipated horror movie due out next month, "The Cabin in the Woods," brought to us by genre favorites Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard. The film, which has already played at the SXSW Film Festival with rave reviews, promises to take on the classic horror genre with some fun twists and turns along the way. The below clip, in which a group of teens play truth or dare, definitely has an "Evil Dead" vibe going for it.

Snapshots: "Cabin in the Woods", still no idea

As much as I'd like this to be terrible so I can go on an epic "Joss Whedon sucks" rant on the podcast, the trailer was so bonkers I'm holding out hope it might be good (as long as there aren't any superhuman anorexic chicks). And yes, I know he's only produced it, but if you think that will stop me from ranting about him you obviously haven't been here very long. Hi, I'm Eric, nice to meet you.

If you're not in the know like I am then you're probably clueless on "Hunger Games", a movie based on a book where kids are sent into a giant playing field and made to battle to the death. Well since it's based on a book and the movie is going to make the kids go gaga it's only stands to reason that the books would now be re-released with the hot teen heartthrobs adoring the cover. So here they are, the new hot sexy covers. I just used the word adorning.

When I was a kid and I popped in a VHS tape I knew I was in for a good time when I saw the Cannon Films logo come up. The "American ninja" movies alone filled up at least 3 years of a young Joe's life. And don't get me started on how much I loved the "Breakin'" films. Sadly, Cannon Films is gone but Documentary film maker Mark Harley is paying tribute to the classic video company with a new flick titled "Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films" which has just been picked up by Drafthouse Films for distribution. Seriously, you should have seen my fat 6 year old ass trying to break dance. It would've made you throw up.

"Cabin In the Woods" is a new horror flick from Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon about a guy who goes to a cabin with some friends and then finds a bunch of weird awful crap. I know that makes no sense but that's what we've got for a plot description. Want to get even more confused? Check out the new poster for the film. It's got a cabin all messed up like a rubix cube or some crap. I don't even know why I'm telling you this. Seriously, I was so fat and I was trying to do a head spin.

America may have never have gotten over the whole Tom Cruise going crazy thing but no one can deny that's he's just so tiny and adorable you want to lock him in your closet and keep him for your own. Every morning you'd wake up and peek inside the closet to see little Tom Cruise sleeping on the tiny little bed he's chained to. At night you'd dress him up in doll clothing and put on elaborate dinner shows with him as the star. All the while knowing that you've got one of Hollywood's top leading men as your little tiny man doll. It would be a dream. Anyway, Tom's going to star in "All You Need Is Kill" as a solider who gets trapped in a time loop when he's killed. I think I've said too much.

In Real People News: 

Here's a story about a guy in Florida who became so upset when his hooker didn't finish the job that he kidnapped her one year old daughter. I want you to sit there and think about that sentence for a minute. Now go call your mother and tell her that you love her.

And the insect take over has begun. Here's a freakin grasshopper the size of your god damn hand. We had a good run folks.

Snapshot: "Cabin in the Woods" (2011)

Plot details have been kept pretty mum on the highly anticipated horror spoof "Cabin in the Woods," so all that we really know is that the movie pokes fun at the typical stranded in the woods type of horror flick and that it stars Chris Hemsworth, Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford, Jesse Williams, Fran Kranz, Kristen Connolly, Anna Hutchison and Amy Acker. Co-written by Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard and directed by Goddard, the film was put on hold due to MGM's money issues, but has now been picked back up by Lionsgate and set for an April 13, 2012 release date.

Joss Whedon's "Cabin in the Woods" gets bumped ALL the way to January 2010, and in the meantime will be "converted" into 3D. An interesting move considering we don't even fully know what the film's about yet. Thoughts?

This guy sounds like a real life "Maniac Cop". You know, only without Bruce Campbell and all the campiness.

Mmmm... nothing sounds better while you're eating breakfast than a heaping helping of Sea Mucus. Gross.

The famous gun-toting soccer mom who made headlines recently for her love of her handgun, has been found dead in an apparent murder-suicide. I believe the phrase you were looking for is, "holy shit, that's ironic!"

On this day in history: 

1978: Former Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious stabs girlfriend Nancy Spungen to death in room 100 of New York's Chelsea Hotel. Because Sid remembers nothing about the crime, theories include robbery and an abortive suicide pact. Vicious dies of an ugly heroin overdose shortly before his trial.

Good Advice From "Cabin in the Woods" Posters

Not much is known about the plot of "The Cabin in the Woods" currently but since it's a collaboration between Joss Whedon and "Lost"/"Cloverfield" writer Drew Goddard chances are it will be some kind of awesome. These three teasers posters bode well.

"The Cabin in the Woods" opens in February.
