harper's island

Horror Headlines: Wednesday December 8th, 2010

I've made a decision to not bother watching the next season of "True Blood" and Neil Hopkins' dreamy eyes aren't going to change that. Him along with Christina Moore and Chris Butler have been added to next season's cast and they'll all play wizards or gargoyles or something stupid.

"Blood is Blood" looks like a monster flick set in the middle of the woods with half naked women. In other words it looks really really awesome and I'm all a flutter about it. A new trailer for the flick, which apparently use to be called "Lockjaw" has hit the tubes and shows all the things I've promised and more.

Put it in the books kids, two trailers in a row that I don't have anything awful to say about. And this one has John Leguizamo! "Vanishing on 7th Street" is about a small group of people who find each other after they wake up and discover most of the world has disappeared. Excited? Wow and you haven't even seen the trailer yet, I hope you don't have a heart attack.

"Echo Lake" is a new online web series about a small town a serial killer is running around killing everyone. This sounds like a handful of really bad TV shows that have been flops, see "Happy Town" and "Harper's Island", but hey maybe it'll work online. What do I know.

In Real People News: 

A Wisconsin woman apparently bit off her 72 year old husband's tongue when he went to kiss her goodnight recently. Just to top things off she then proceeded to throw coffee at the police when they came to her house. Old people are freaks.

And to prove my point here's a report that says men over 75 years old want more sex but are unfortunately limited by opportunity and failing health. If I had my way they would also be limited by severe laws but it's becoming painfully clear that I'll never be president so enjoy all the horny old men wandering the streets America.

Horror Headlines: Wednesday July 15th, 2009

So the story is floating around today that "Harper's Island" on CBS is officially canceled. Of course, since it was basically a summer filler miniseries, I'm not sure how people thought it had a chance of being "picked up" anyway. Besides, wasn't everyone dead at the end? Oooops... spoiler!

"Anchor Bay" has picked up "Grace" for a DVD release and limited theatrical run. The indie has been blazing up the festival circuit lately, and Anchor Bay seems like a logical place for it to find a home. It's an extremely limited release, only hitting a few theaters in NY and LA, but if you live in those areas you just might have the chance to see it on the big screen. The film is about "a mother who brings her dead fetus to term, and gives birth to a child with an appetite for blood".

After numerous stumbles along the way, the comic adaptation "HACK/SLASH" has a new director. Frederik Bond will be replacing Todd Lincoln as the helmer. The film will supposedly begin shooting by the year's end. "HACK/SLASH" deals with a sexy young woman who travels the country, taking on homicidal maniacs and serial killers along the way.

"Zombieland" has a poster, and it's pretty sweet.

In Real People News: 

I've got a foolproof get-rich-quick scheme for you... all you have to do is have a cellphone and be able to act like a genie. I have no idea how to do that either, but I can't figure out everything for you. Take some initiative!

It seems like I shouldn't have to say this, but just to be safe... falling asleep in a recycling bin after a night of drinking is not a good idea. It will probably end up with you being dead.

I don't care if you are a "molecular gastronomist" - probably the most pretentious phrase I've ever had to type - you shouldn't be cooking with liquid nitrogen. It's a good way to lose both of your hands, like this dumbass.

On this day in history: 

1974: During a live broadcast of the Sarasota, Florida morning news program Suncoast Digest, newscaster Chris Chubbuck tells the audience: "In keeping with Channel 40's policy of bringing you the latest in blood and guts, and in living color, you are going to see another first: an attempted suicide." Then she blows her brains out with a .38 revolver.

For Some Reason "Harper's Island" Is Coming To DVD

So I might be one of the fifteen people that actually watched “Harper’s Island” on CBS but nonetheless they have decided to put the entire mini-series out on DVD. Truth be told I only made it through about four weeks and didn’t even realize they had finished off the show until a couple weeks ago when I saw my DVR recording something on a Saturday night.

Harper’s Island #2: “Crackle”

Alright, here we go with Harper’s Island episode two. After last week’s opener we can finally hunker down and start to answer some questions. Of course the biggest one is “who’s doing all the killing on the island?” Well we still have 11 more episodes to go so I don’t see the answer to that being thrown out any time soon. But they did give good reasons why everybody could be our killer.

Harper’s Island 1: “Wrap”

So last night Harper’s Island finally premiered on CBS after weeks of promotion. The station has been hyping up the 13 episode series pretty heavily during primetime and with the site Harpersglobe.com. It's essentially a slasher in miniseries form, something horror fans have been pretty excited about being on network television. The first episode pretty much did what you would expect it to do: Opened up the story and left you with a lot of questions.
