BGH Classic Pack - Remake-Apolooza! Vol. 2

We know that not all horror remakes are created equal. As we explored in the first volume of BGH Classic's Remake-Apolooza, with the right mix of vision and talent you can rework a classic. This week marks one of the biggest tests of that theory to date, as the long-anticipated "Evil Dead" reimagining hits theaters -- and the Bloody Good Horror podcast.

The Hazing (REVIEW)

Spend days slogging your way through the "Teen Screams" section on Netflix like I just did, and a film like "The Hazing" comes as nothing short of a revelation. In a world where it seems like people have forgotten how to make "fun" horror movies on small budgets, it does everything right, for a myriad of reasons.

On The Next Podcast: "Night of the Demons"

This week the gang sits down to watch a remake that wasn't good enough to be released in theaters. Yes my friends it's the long awaited, by only me I think, remake of "Night of the Demons". This should work out well.

Retro Trailer: "Night of the Demons" (1988)

In the wake of the recent "Night of the Demons" remake, I thought we'd take a quick look at the original, one of my go-to Halloween themed movies. On Halloween night, 10 teenagers gather for a party at an old abandoned funeral parlor hosted by Angela (Mimi Kinkade) and Suzanne (Linnea Quigley). It's too bad they think it's a good idea to hold a past life seance. Of course, they unleash an evil spirit that possesses each one of them, one by one.

Trailer: New "Night of the Demons" is Chock Full of Blood and Boobs

I'm pretty sure 75% of the new "Night of the Demons" trailer has already made it's way to the internet but I'm 100% sure the parts with the boobs being ripped off and crap is all new. Those are the kinds of things that usually stick in ones head for a while. I'm sorry if I ruined the surprise for you. How about to make it a big surprise, you watch the trailer at work and the real surprise can be when your IT department comes over and has you fired. That's my clever way of saying the new trailer isn't really safe for work.

Horror Headlines: Friday July 23rd, 2010

The fine people behind the upcoming "Saw 3D" release have put out a pretty dandy 3D poster that will blow your little peepers out of their sockets. There's also a solid chance this will be the best part of this movie, so enjoy it while it lasts.

"Dexter Early Cuts: Dark Echo", which is a brand spanking new animated webisode found it's way to Comic Con and the internerds are all a flutter. The web series gives us all a chance to see what went on in our favorite serial killer's life before the show started. In episode three he goes out an buys all those cool cabana shirts.

Fresh from Comic Con comes news that Guillermo del Toro is going to be making a "Haunted Mansion" movie based on the Disney ride. I can't even begin to explain how excited I am about this but apparently they aren't going to be asking Eddie Murphy to join the cast. Am I the only one who enjoyed the last one? I can't be alone here.

In order to build up the hype around it's estimated 2014 release the fine people behind the "Night Of The Demons" remake have released a poster. Alright the 2014 thing is kind of bullshit, it just feels like we've been talking about this masterpiece forever now. You can't rush Shannon Elizabeth and her perfection.

If you loved "The Mutant Chronicles", and honestly who didn't, you'll be excited to know that its creator Simon Hunter is currently working on a new a new flick titled "Safe House". I'll be honest, I didn't like "The Mutant Chronicles" and I could care less about this, but I thought I should post one thing that didn't come out of Comic Con.

In Real People News: 

I would love to mock this guy in South Carolina who was killed after he got drunk and tried to high five a train but I can't. Not because I'm a sensitive person and it isn't cool to make fun of the dead but because I've gotten pretty wasted and tried to slap the subway a number of times.

A two headed bearded dragon sounds like the most frightening thing Jesus even invented but honestly it's adorable. The kind of adorable that makes you want to go out and slap a train.

1984 - Vanessa Williams became the first Miss America to resign her title, because of nude photographs published in Penthouse magazine.

Horror Headlines: Friday August 7th, 2009

Can we all agree that Fowler Fridays are the sexiest day of the BGH week? I do my best to add a bit of sexy Latin flava to the proceedings. Kinda like that Santana/Rob Thomas collaboration “Smooth”. As a matter of fact, let's consider me Santana and BGH Rob Thomas.

The most anticipated, and let's be honest, probably best, horror film of 2009, Halloween 2, has been rated R by the MPAA for “strong brutal bloody violence throughout, terror, disturbing graphic images, language, some crude sexual content, and nudity” . To me, that's a Tuesday. You know the funny thing about horror fans? For all their griping and bitching, you know they're gonna be there opening weekend for this. Even mice are smart enough not keep touching the feeder bar if it keeps electrocuting them. Maybe that's why I think people decrying the flick are just doing it to get attention...ERIC.

Night of the Demons, or, as I call it be “Night of the Semens”, because I will undoubtedly be masturbating to Diora Baird as soon as it hits DVD, has sadly been pushed back from October 9 to February 2010. Hold tight, L'il Louis...hold tight.

Simon & Schuster has staked out September 29th for the release of their Hellraiser/Clive Barker tribute book Hellbound Hearts, featuring Cenobite tales from Neil Gaiman, Steve Niles, Richard Christian Matheson, Mike Mignola and, um, Mick Garris, who's pinning a story called “Hellbound Hollywood”, which I'm pretty sure is based on a Stephen King short story. Probably “Trucks”.

In Real People News: 

I really feel like the ocean is rebelling against us in the most horrific of ways. First floating blobs of goo, giant catfish and flying squid...now we have logs covered in slimy tentacles washing up in Wales. Imagine peacefully swimming, enjoying yourself, basking in the sun, only to have that brush up against your back, turning around to find a faceful of tentacles in your mouth. It's like something from a Mick Garris movie.

A dog in Northwest China is suspected of starting an outbreak of pneumonic plague. Those same sources also said they suspected the dog of being “Very very derishious. Ah so!”

You know how Big Lots have been selling great DVD titles for $3 recently, like Tales from the Crypt season one through seven, FOR THREE BUCKS? Many of us have been wondering where they legendary closeouts superstore are getting these titles from...could this be the answer? Little bit of legal advice guys: the defense “they fell off the back of the truck” usually doesn't work. Believe me, I learned this the hard way when I was running Coors from Texarkana to Georgia for Big Enos and Little Enos.

On this day in history: 

In 1986, William J. Schroeder died after living 620 days with the Jarvik 7 artificial heart. NOT SUCH A BIG MAN NOW, ARE YA JARVIK?!?!

Tenney's "Brain Dead" Gets Release!

Kevin Tenney has been busy lately. First of all, he's been producing a remake of his 80's classic "Night of the Demons", which is actually looking like it will get some type of theatrical release.

Apparently he's also been working on a zombie film called "Brain Dead", and the news today is that it will be getting a limited theatrical release in just a few short weeks. March 30th, 2009 to be exact. Synopsis and trailer below:

Horror Headlines: Friday March 13th, 2009

The Wes Craven produced "Last House on the Left" remake hits theaters everywhere today. Expect a review for it some time tomorrow, in the meantime feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments.

Oh Snap! New Line Cinema has announced that it's releasing "Final Destination: Death Trip 3D" against Rob Zombie's "H2". That date would be August 28th, 2009. For those unfamiliar with this, "H2" has been "served", it is now their opportunity to "serve back". If they do, then it's officially "on". In which case we settle all of this with a dance-off. Oooohhh, how exciting!

Valerie Cruz (Dexter), has been cast on the next season of HBO's "True Blood". We used to cover it when the site, but stopped when fan interest seemed to wain. What do you guys think, is anyone out there interested in having us pick up coverage again? Informal poll in the comments!

Trailer for "Orphan", starring Peter Sarsgaard and Vera Farmiga, about "a husband and wife who recently lost their baby [who] adopt a 9-year-old girl who is not nearly as innocent as she claims to be". Seems to be lots of evil kid movies lately. Wonder if there's something to that.

The "Night of the Demons" remake has a release date, October 9th 2009. Suspiciously absent from this announcement, whether or not it's going wide theatrically. I refuse to believe a film starring Edward Furlong, Tiffany Shepis and Linnea Quigley is playing across the country in 2009. Not that I wouldn't love to see it happen, but let's be realistic here people.

Speaking of wide releases, the remake of Stephen King's "IT" is going to be an "all out theatrical" adaptation set "in present day". I do enjoy the original miniseries, although I think we can all agree that the finale needs a much needed special FX upgrade, so I'm interested to see how this reboot turns out.

In Real People News: 

If you're practicing bestiality on Florida, better hurry up! The long overdue ban is due any day now. Better party like it's 1999, yall.

Good news, the fraud going on in Iraq at the hands of US corporations is actually far worse than anything Bernie Madoff's done in the last 30 years. Oh wait... that's actually horribly depressing news. I'm really bad at this.

One more dose of awesomely ironic hilarity for you on this Friday. Monkey kills owner with coconut for making him pick coconuts out of trees all day. That's it, you've been a great crowd this week folks... till Monday!

On this day in history: 

1881: An anarchist from the radical group People's Will throws a bomb which disrupts Czar Alexander II's motorcade. After he thanks God for his deliverance, the anarchist yells "It is too early to thank God" and throws a second bomb, causing injuries from which Alexander bleeds to death.
