Midnight Movies: From the Margin to the Mainstream (REVIEW)

You can’t call yourself a true horror fan if you’ve never been to a midnight movie. There are few things that can draw you into a film more than a rowdy audience of inebriated, enthusiastic genre fans all gathered around to take part in the same film.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday October 19th, 2010

Here's a new one! The gang promoting "Paranormal Activity 2" have set up a phone number that you can call and listen to some spooky fun. Which is awesome because normally I have to pay $2.99 a minute to have a women fake being frightened for her life. Don't judge.

If you love "Glee", and who doesn't, then there's a solid chance you love "The Rocky Horror Picture Show". Well I have good news for you, kid who is overweight but still wears shirts two sizes to small! Ryan Murphy, the creator of "Glee" has just wrapped an entire episode devoted to the camp classic and is in talks to possibly do a remake. Good, I haven't been assaulted by a tranny coming out of a late night movie in years.

Adrien Brody has taken legal action to try an stop the release of the Dario Argento film "Giallo". Apparently Brody had never watched any of Argento's other films and when he picked up the script said out loud, "No way could this be a pile of crap, people love this guy. Sign me up!". You made your bed big nose, now lie in it with the weird Italian model who can barley speak English but for some reason plays the staring role.

In Real People News: 

A Mexico City borough recently created a 230-foot-long enchilada to warm it's way into my heart and the Guinness book of world records. I think this officially puts Mexico on the map as a world super power. I'm not sure what the criteria is to get into that group but it has to have something to do with making giant food.

On this day in history: 

1987 - The stock market crashed as the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged 508 points, or 22.6 percent in value - its second biggest percentage drop.

Beer, Horror Screenings, and Beautiful Posters

We get requests to promo stuff pretty often, which are usually met with a healthy dose of snarky indifference. However, we are occasionally surprised with something really cool, and we got a tip from the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin Texas about some awesome posters for upcoming film screenings (above and left). The "Night of the Creeps" screening will also apparently be included in the DVD extras for the upcoming release of that film, so if you're in the area, be sure to check that out.
