my soul to take

BGH Goes to HorrorHound

This weekend the Bloody Good Horror team will be making its yearly pilgrimage to the Indianapolis Marriott to take in all the "Terminator"-related highs and lows of HorrorHound Weekend 2012.

Fans of the first two "Hellboy" films might want to cover up their cereal bowls because I'm about to piss all over your Wheaties. According to Hellboy creator Mike Mignola there's no chance of director Guillermo del Toro ever returning to make a third film. So i guess that does mean a 3rd film could be made without del Toro but who the hell wants to see that. The Canadians maybe but not this guy. Those hockey rioting sickos would probably eat that crap up with ketchup.

For those of you who aren't complete burnouts an can remember all the way back to 2004 you might remember some pretty bold words from Danny Elfman about never working with Sam Raimi again after his experience on "Spiderman 2". Well it looks like the Elf Man has had a change of heart and has signed on to do the score of Sam's new "Wizard of OZ" inspired flick "OZ: The Great and Powerful". So good news for those of you who are still holding out for an Oingo Boingo reunion.

Remember the days when people actually enjoyed Wes Craven's movies? Well I do and you should respect your elders you snotty little smartass. Anyway his 1977 classic film "The Hills Have Eyes" is finally being given the Blu-Ray treatment and will hit shelves on September 6th. So far no word on extras yet but this might be a nice place to record a little apology for "My Soul to Take".

If you're like me then you're still washing your eyes our with soap and water after seeing a Kane Hodder sex scene in "Hatchet 2". But here's a new slasher flick staring the Hodster as a creepy gas station owner who also seems to be obsessed with women titled "Exit 33". The flick has just been given an August 2nd release date and I can't imagine we'll see any hot Hodder action in it but if we do it'll most likely be in a gas station bathroom. Can you imagine what that would smell like?

Maybe the worst film we've ever reviewed... including "Shreik of the Mutilated".

Good news if you hate 3D, "My Soul to Take" had the worst opening for a 3D movie to date, making roughly $6.9 million this past weekend. I'd love to see the breakdown of people who saw it that weren't forced to because they're on a podcast.

John Carpenter suffered a minor stroke this past Saturday at the Spooky Empire convention in Orlando. The bad ass part? He returned to the convention on Sunday to continue meetings fans. He also bit the head off of one. Alright that last part's a lie.

Producer Bryan Fuller recently dropped some info on his upcoming reboot of "The Munsters" TV series. It's being described a combo of "Modern Family" and "True Blood" which to me sounds like a bunch of vampires who are related screwing each other. Hollywood is a bunch of sickos.

If you've all being waiting for the next Indonesian flick to hit the states you can finally get some sleep because "Satan's Facebook" is coming. There's really no reason to explain what this is about, from the title alone you should be excited and if you're not you're a racist. There, I said it.

My Soul to Take will make you scream.

It's not every day that one has to witness the decline of a legend, but this weekend, with the release of "My Soul to Take," we are all witness to the decline of iconic director Wes Craven. A sloppy, mess of a film, "My Soul to Take" finds Craven at his absolute worst. Unbearable teenage dialogue, throw away characters, and over-baked killers -- it's the perfect storm of Craven's previous bad habits in one disastrous film. Though this train wreck has been telegraphed since at least the second "Scream" film, that doesn't make it any less disappointing or dispiriting.

"The Loved Ones" hits Australian theaters on November 4th and today we've got some new TV spots for you to take a look at. By all accounts this movie looks awesome, who doesn't love a cute girl going around 'effing people up? Well the people she's doing it to probably, but that goes without saying. I hate when you question me.

Here's some new clips from Wes Craven's "My Soul to Take" and the kids are just adorable. It's almost getting to the point that I'm going to feel like a creepy old man when I go to see this. Almost...

David Hackl, the director of "Saw V" has got a new film coming out called "Red Machine" and today we've got our first image. The movie is about a bear that goes nuts and kills people so the image is of... you guessed it, a pissed off bear. Well played!

For those of you who enjoy the written word, Clive Barker is just about wrapped up with "The Scarlet Gospels", the final chapter in his "Hellraiser" series. Hopefully they'll make a movie out of it, because pictures are better then words. Fact!

Ciaran Hinds is in talks to play the Devil in the upcoming "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance" film. What's better? Some Italian actress/singer named Violante Placido is apparently in talks to join the cast as well. I've never heard of her and from what I've seen on Google Images she's never heard of clothing either.

Finally here's some new images from "My Soul to Take". They've got a kid freakin out and then another one with some kids drawing straws and... oh god I just don't have it in me anymore. This movie is going to be awful.
