Trick 'r Treat (REVIEW)

As a general rule, I tend to stay as far away from the proverbial Hype Machine as humanly possible. There have been a few occasions when said contraption has nimbly eluded my defenses and ensnared me, savagely hooking its claws into the nerdy, mucus-like substance which controls a substantial part of my thought process. More often than not, the buzz surrounding whichever project I'm obsessing over is unworthy of all the unnecessary attention, and my projected enjoyment is substantially diminished.

DVD and Blu-ray Trailer For "Trick R Treat"

After being delayed for over two years Michael Dougherty’s “Trick R Treat” has finally gotten a DVD and Blu-ray release date. I for one am almost wetting myself with excitement. In honor of this momentous occasion a final trailer for the film has been released as well. From the looks of things and the countless quotes that are thrown in the film will actually live up to expectations.

Horror Headlines: Monday June 15th, 2009

Joss Whedon was offered and turned down a chance to work on the "new" "Buffy the Vampire" slayer film which is in development, which is reportedly a remake of the original film. Apparently producers were a little surprised at the level of negative buzz their announcement created amongst Buffy fans (really?), and so they tried to get Whedon in on the action. He wasn't biting, and so presumably they'll be going ahead with development as planned.

"Dead Bones" is a short Horror/Western that you can watch in its entirety at the link. It has gotten good buzz so far, and also stars Ken Foree, who is so fun to watch on screen he actually makes about :30 seconds of the "Halloween" remake watchable. So, your move, partner.

Reason to upgrade to Bluray: All of the special features for Mike Dougherty's "Trick 'R Treat" will only be found on the newfangled medium. Also in today's news, the collection to "Buy Eric a Bluray Player" has officially begun. Line forms to the left.

Via his Myspace, Richard Kelly confirms that there will be a panel for his upcoming film "The Box" at the next Comic-Con. He adds, cryptically, "More news on The Box and Darko projects soon". Darko projects? Is it possible he'll be erasing the horrible taste left in my mouth from "S. Darko"? Stay tuned to find out.

In Real People News: 

Woman dies from an acute case of "Assface". And by that I mean, complications from plastic surgery involving injecting fat from her ass into her face. But ya, I like "Assface" better.

I've never really been to therapy, but I'm reasonably sure that it shouldn't involve sticking toilet brushes up people's asses. The more you know, people.

On this day in history: 

1999: Nicholas Vitalich is arrested outside a supermarket in San Diego, California for slapping his girlfriend upside the head with a large tuna. Vitalich is booked for assault with a deadly weapon

Extended "Trick 'R Treat" Trailer, Release Date!

Looks like we finally have the answer to when Mike Doughterty's ("X2") "Trick 'r Treat" will be released, and it will not be theatrically as we had all hoped. Not that that's a big surprise, considering how long it's been on the shelf I would have been shocked if they went the theatrical route.
