All of us here at the BGH offices are just tickled pink that "Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil" is finally getting released on VOD next month and we hope you get just as misty as we did when you see the new poster that's hit the tubes. The film, which follows two mountain men who end up being mistaken for a couple of murderers has been doing the convention circuit for some time now but didn't get picked up with a release date until recently. On a side note I would really appreciate it if the prick who keeps finishing the coffee and not making a new pot would cut the crap.
Holy crap has it already been 20 years since I rented "Subspecies" because it had a half naked woman on the cover? Time really flies doesn't it. Well now I can relive the disappointment of the movie not being soft core porn all over again because the good people at Full Moon Entertainment are giving the "classic" vampire flick a Blu-Ray release on July 25th. Unfortunately the only special feature on the disc will be the original "Video Zone" that appeared on the VHS for the movie but those were pretty fun. I wonder if any of those "Puppet Master" action figures are still for sale.
"Wake Wood" director David Keating is lined up to direct "The Cherry Tree" as his next spooky outing. The movie follows a 16 year old girl who chooses to have Satan's baby in order to save the life of her father. A choice facing many of our nation's youth today. I'm pretty sure MTV has a reality show based on it.
Ving Rhames has landed a role in the zombie apocalypse movie titled "A Zombie Apocalypse". Clever, I know. He's joined by Lesley-Ann Brandt, Gary Weeks, Johnny Pacer and Taryn Manning, who also happens to be in my top 5 all time favorite film hookers. A list coveted by actresses around the globe. The flick is currently filming in LA and is expected to be released later this year on DVD.

A North Dakota man went a little overboard with his celebration of freedom this past 4th of July and accidentally blew his own head off when the fireworks display he set off in his front yard got a little out of hand. Police are still unsure how the mishap happened but I've officially decided this is how I want to go out... For freedom.
I like this guy's style. A Florida man is under arrested after he planted black widow eggs in his ex-girlfriends mailbox. Now see, that's commitment. Most guys would just toss a couple live spiders in there but this guy was in it for the long haul. Good for you my crazy ass friend. Good for you.
Sir Kevin Smith plans on trimming about 10 minutes of film from "Red State" before he hits the road on March 5th to screen the film to select audiences. With ticket prices for the screenings running anything from $50 to $125 I'm going to go ahead and say I don't give a crap how bad the movie is you leave in every freakin second of it before it turns out people are paying 100 bucks for a crappy 12 minute opus.
Wait a second isn't there already a remake of "Mother's Day" coming out"? What the hell is "Father's Day"? Where did this teaser come from? Who are these people? What are you doing Troma? Father get raped in this movie? What the hell is going on!? Where am I?
Good news everyone in Chicago, "Evil Bong 3D: The Wrath of Bong" will premier there on 4/20 (get it!?) and will feature "Sniff-O-Rama". What that pretty much means is the good people from Full Moon will give out a bunch of scratch-n-sniff cards when you go to see the movie and you can pretend like you're in the movie. I'm just guessing here but I'm thinking 95% of the cards will smell like weed.
What's got two thumbs and is only 85% sarcastic about being excited for "The Roommate" this Friday? This guy! Try not being fired up after checking out the 3 news clips from the movie that have hit the tubes. Just try you monsters!

I've always been grossed out by free samples at grocery stores and here's proof I'm not crazy. A women in New Mexico claims she was given semen instead of the yogurt sample she expected recently at her local market. Apparently she recognized the taste immediately and spit the sample out. There's just too many jokes to be made here that I can't possibly choose one.
Producer Joel Silver is giving weight to the talk of a new "Swamp Thing" film. Among the scare nuggets given in the interview were talks of a 3D version and closer adherence to the Alan Moore comic character versus the Wes Craven rubber suit version.
There's even more zombies coming to your TV, this time in a French feature called "The Horde". The French have had a good track record with horror lately, see if they can live up to the zombie genre with new trailer that was just released.
