Retro Clip: "Trilogy of Terror" (1975)

The "Trilogy of Terror" was an above average horror anthology that featured 3 stories all starring Karen Black. While the first two stories are somewhat forgettable, it's the third story, of an African tribal doll that comes to life and terrorizes Ms. Black that is really memorable. Although the effects are pretty laughable nowadays, this scared the heck out of me as a child. Plus, it's still pretty damn entertaining to watch every once in a while. Take a look:

Retro Trailer: "Mirror Mirror" (1990)

When shy Goth girl Megan (Rainbow Harvest) moves to a new town with her recently widowed mother (Karen Black), she has a bit of trouble fitting in with her peers. Taunted by her classmates, she does manage to begin a friendship with a two teens from school, Nikki and Ron. While unpacking at her new house, Megan discovers an antique mirror that manages to keep reappearing, even after it is taken out with the trash. Soon Megan finds that the mirror holds the power to grant wishes. For a price, that is... (Insert evil laughter here).

Horror Headlines: Wednesday October 24th, 2010

Here's some good news. Some jackass thought it would be a good idea to make a full length film based on the video for Michael Jackson's "Thriller" and now there's a bidding war going on. I hope this starts a trend, because I always wanted to see what happened to the couple in the "Take On Me" video. I hope those crazy kids got married.

Here's some hot new details on the story line for the next season of "True Blood". Cage fighters, crappy palm readers and me still feeling like less and less of a man with each passing episode.

Darren Aronofsky has set "Machine Man" as his next project. The movie will focus on a man with a talent for robotics who finds a way to upgrade his own body, with sexy results. Alright I don't know about that last part but if I was writing the script that's how it would go.

Karen Black, Sid Haig, Bai Ling and Traci Lords are set to star in a new horror flick titled "Go Straight to Hell". The movie will focus on the four strangers who have to confess the one sin they didn't repent for while on earth or be sent to hell. I'm just guessing Ling's has something to do with rolling around like a sex doll on TV and Lords' will most likely have to repent for that while underage porn thing.

In Real People News: 

A short clip from a 1928 Charlie Chaplin film has got the internerds all a buzz because there appears to be a women on a cell phone in one shot. Some say the women could actually be a time traveler while I'm just amazed people are still watching silent films. Hasn't anyone seen what awesome full color movies we have now days? With actual words?

I have no idea why you would set out to eat the same thing for two months but a man in Washington is already regretting his 60 day goal of eating nothing but potatoes after the first month. He should have chosen chicken McNuggets, I could eat those things for 4 months straight. They're so good!
