Sit back, clench your butthole, and enjoy the ride...

It’s interesting to look at the state of horror these days. Thankfully it’s fairly strong in numbers with releases happening every month. If you'll pardon the digression, my two cents on the state of horror helps to explain my feelings on "Stitches" more accurately.

Event number two for John Carpenter this month! If you haven't yet, check out my last post about the anniversary screening for John Carpenter's "The Thing". He did a round of Q&A then too and surprisingly the questions asked this time were all different than from before.

“Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal” is literally what you think it would be about from the name. A mute man named Eddie has the dark talent of turning cannibalistic once he falls asleep. Throw in a creatively starved artist using Eddie’s night attacks as inspiration for paintings and you have the full picture. Let me make it clear that this film is listed as a horror comedy which aided me in examining the purpose behind this plot. If you love “Shaun of the Dead” and the satirical yet bloody good “Cabin in the Woods” then...you’ll probably want to avoid this one.

Let's deal with the question on everyone's mind right off the top: Would the sequel to 2010's well-regarded horror comedy "Piranha 3D" be able to match the disembodied male sex organ quotient of the original? Happily -- or perhaps unhappily, depending on your feelings -- the answer is yes, sweet lord yes!

Let's just say it, "Gingerclown 3D" is a fantastic name for a film. The cast also looks great, Lance Henriksen, Tim Curry, Michael Winslow... but then I watched the trailer, and there isn't a single "Ginger" in it. I can't help but assume they're using the South Park-ian definition, a pasty redhead with no soul. Otherwise, what the hell is a "Gingerclown"? I feel like I've been lied to here. The trailer's still fun, but I have to admit, if there's no gingers in it I make no promises about watching it. I am not to be trifled with.
