camp hope

Back in the day (?) the roommates and I were on a Denzel Washington kick. We went through the higher tier/more accessible films quickly then moved on to the task of uncovering the true gems. It was on that fateful bargain bin run in early spring that brought 1984’s “License to Kill.” There he was, regally poised on the cover of the DVD, his symmetrical of symmetric faces glowing up at us sporting a dashing moustache. But we had fallen victim to packaging fraud. Denzel had roughly 30 minutes of screen time in a supporting role with NO MOUSTACHE to be found!

"Camp Hope," a film about all the fun things that can happen at an indoctrinating Christian summer camp, takes the Jesus thing and makes it angsty. I thought "Jesus Camp" was scary enough, but producer turned writer/director George VanBuskirk thinks he can do it one better by adding Jesse Eisenberg.

For those of you that think vampires have grown a bit too soft and emo these days, you might be excited to hear that Vinnie Jones has signed on to star in "The Bleeding". Vinnie Jones; vampire hunter? Sounds good to me.

Jesse Eisenberg, star of "Zombieland" is bringing us more horror, this time in a movie called "Camp Hope". No zombies this time around, instead we watch as Jesse faces inherent evil as it invades a children's spiritual retreat! "This one time... at Jesus camp..."

Screenwriter Akiva Golddman, responsible for such films as "I Am Legend" and "Batman and Robin" bring news of a new version of "Swamp Thing" is in development. Goldsmsn explains that they hope to keep the character closer to Alan Moore's comic book creature as opposed to the incarnations we've had so far.

Those of you that were fearing the inevitable announcement of "Scary Movie 5" can put those fears to rest. Instead, you can dredge up a whole new host of fears as the Weinsteins opt to go with a "Scary Movie" reboot. "Scary Movie 1: Again". Nothing snarky here, I'm just going to let that one soak in a bit.
