It's In The Blood (REVIEW)

"It's in the Blood" starts with prodigal son October (Sean Elliot, who also cowrote the film) returning home to visit his estranged father Russell, the sheriff of their small town (Lance Henrikson). Neither distance nor time have softened the hard feelings between them, and the pair embark on a hiking trip in the Texas backwoods in a last ditch attempt to repair their relationship. When a freak accident hobbles Russell with a gruesome leg injury, it falls on his son to tend to the damage.

Mimic 3 Film Blu-Ray Set (REVIEW)

“Mimic” is a film I feel many horror fans look back to through retroactive produced rose-colored glasses. Most of this perception understandably comes from the current status of the film’s director and writer Guillermo del Toro as a cultural icon for both genre fans and international cinema. But at the time “Mimic” was initially released del Toro had yet to prove his filmmaking prowess despite the success of “Cronos”.

Trailers: "Gingerclown 3D", WTF... I was promised Gingers...

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.

Horror Headlines: Friday February 25th, 2011

You know what? It's Friday. I'm just going to go ahead and set your day on edge by making you watch this clip from "Predator: The Musical". You can thank me later.

Well it's about time. Lance Henriksen is writing an autobiography titled "Not Bad For a Hum". It's going to be published by comic scribe Steve Niles over at his Bloody Pulp Books imprint too. Finally, somebody besides Lance and myself think Lance is awesome enough to warrant an autobiography! For full details, be sure to visit the official site for Not Bad For a Human

Speaking of Steve Niles, this guy's on fire! According to a recent post at his website, the writer has announced he will be penning a comic version of "Nevermore", the one man stage play based on the life of Edgar Allen Poe that stars Jeffery Combs! Combs will be involved in the comic as well, so this will be one to watch. Well, one to watch if you're a Poe/Comic nerd like me.

In Real People News: 

We all think our jobs suck. The next time the man has you down though, be happy you're not this Durango Police officer who had a postal worker spit feces at him. Yes, 'spit feces'. From his mouth.

On this day in history: 

February 25th 1922 - Henri Landru, the notorious French serial killer known as "Bluebeard", guillotined for murdering ten women, and one boy. His motive was purely financial; by placing classified ads Landru lured selected women into his clutches, married them, and disposed of their bodies without a trace. While denying guilt to the end, a drawing given to his attorney had written on the reverse, "I did it. I burned their bodies in my kitchen oven".

10 Voice Acting Moonlighters

If there's one that I love almost as much as horror, it's cartoons! Sure, I could write off my love of the animated art form as a by-product of having a kid, but I like you readers. I really don't want to lie to you. I just love them. Blame Bugs Bunny!

Dark Reel (REVIEW)

When you find yourself sifting through stacks of low budget independent features, you tend to find some common similarities throughout. A spark of a good idea, a lot of ambition, and a healthy love of the genre. Typically, these movies tend to not extend very far past these tenants; and are quickly hampered by low budget, lack of experience and sub par acting. At first glance, "Dark Reel" appears to be one of those films.
