Silent Hill: Revelation 3D (REVIEW)

It's been six years since the original "Silent Hill" film hit theaters, a film that at the time I remember thinking was fairly solid. I remember it being visually striking, but falling apart in the end due to a series of bizarrely video-game like info dumps in the third act. Intentional or not, it sort of hobbles a film that otherwise could have ended up being a classic. I remember thinking that if there was one thing I would have liked to see in a sequel it would be a more streamlined story. Well, I've just seen "Silent Hill: Revelation 3D" and can now say, they did not take my advice.

Horror Headlines: Monday, July 16th, 2012

I'm sorry I've been MIA for a couple days. I just had a lot going on. A wedding, my child's first birthday party and a house full of out of town guests. Look I said I'm sorry! You know I don't get paid for this right? I do this out of the kindness of my heart. You should get down on your knees and kiss my feet every day you get to enjoy my news. Look I'm sorry, that last part might have been a little bit too far. God I said I'm sorry! What do you want from me?! You're such a prick sometimes!

We're a few months away from Halloween but the good folks overt at Universal Studios have dropped word that both "The Walking Dead" and "Silent Hill" will be featured in this year's Halloween Horror Nights. No word yet on what the attractions will be just yet but if I was to guess I'd think for "The Walking Dead" you'll just chase a little kid around a farm for 2 hours and eventually get killed because his stupid ass won't stay in the house.

Despite earlier word that there was no chance in hell the film was going to happen it looks like Guillermo del Toro is very much looking forward to making "Hellboy 3". In a recent interview the ever busy director let loose that him and Ron Perlman are together and trying to make the flick happen. He also went on to say that he's still very much interested in making "At The Mountains Of Madness". He also confirmed that there is in fact an Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy and he owns a Unicorn.

The good folks over at Showtime are teaming up with the gang that brought you "Hung" for a new supernatural thriller series titled "Sleep No More". No word on filming or air dates but the series will focus on a small town where the dead continue to return from the grave. I can't stop giggling over "Hung".

"Community" star Gillian Jacobs has signed on to costar with Ken Marino in a new horror/comedy titled "Milo". The project follows Duncan, played by Marino, a guy who thinks he has a demon living inside his stomach that's causing all his ailments. I thought the same thing the last time I ate at Denny's. Moons Over My Hammy. Am I right?

I know I've only been a parent for a year now but I'd like to think I'll never get to the point where I lock my little bundle of joy in a chicken coop and force her to wear a shock collar. I mean I can't say for 100% sure it won't happen. I just like to think I'll never get there.

A 27 year old California woman is under arrest after she attacked her boyfriend for bringing her the wrong beer. I'm not saying I support domestic violence but sometimes I think the law should go light on people. Just saying.

Does "Kindergarten Cop" take place in "Silent Hill"??

5 minutes ago I would have responded to that question with "wha?". Now, I'm not so sure....

What a hilarious little discovery for us all these years later though. I hope more things like this start popping up soon. I’d love to find out the hidden design connections between Turok and The Accused.

9 Over-done Halloween Costumes

As Andy Williams once sang, "It's the most wonderful time of the year"! Sure, he was talking about a different holiday, but I think you'll all agree with me that the statement is just as fitting for Halloween! It's a time to get spooky, a time to get scary. A time to transform yourself into a wholly different character that resembles nothing of your true self and be somebody else for a night!

And who doesn't love that?

Horror Headlines: Thursday June 17th, 2010

Brace yourselves, kids: Konami has released an extended trailer for the highly-anticipated "Silent Hill 8", a franchise that desperately needs a hit. I'll be the first to admit there was quite a bit of butt-clenching going on. Those games scare the hell out of me. Seriously.

Sick of documentary-style horror flicks? If so, perhaps the upcoming Chinese genre outing "31 Degrees North Latitude" isn't the film for you. The plot: Scientists venture into the wildnerness to unravel the mystery behind a local legend. Why, that doesn't sound familiar at all!

Once upon a time, I complained about a serious lack of horror/westerns. Now that I've seen the trailer for "The Dead and the Damned", I'm officially retracting my complaint. Please, for the love of God, stop making horror/westerns, especially ones that feature zombies. That includes you, Romero.

Those of you who are still waiting for "Predators" to make its mark in theaters this summer might want to have a gander at this impossibly large gallery of images, many of which include pictures of the titular beasts themselves. As cool as these pictures may be, I shall retain my chin-scratching skepticism.

In Real People News: 

Do you know what goes good with grapes? A pair of angry black widow spiders. I always knew that Whole Foods was plotting to destroy mankind, though until now it was unclear as to how they would achieve this goal. Well played, you healthy bastards.

An ambitious drug trafficker with a questionable amount of ingenuity managed to to smuggle 506 pounds of pot on a plane bound for Ohio. Her secret: Stashing the grass in 13 separate suitcases. You go, girl. You go to prison.

On this day in history: 

1994 - After refusing to turn himself into the police, O.J. Simpson leads authorities on a widely-televised pursuit through Brentwood, California in a white Ford Bronco.

10 Horror Video Games

If there is one thing I've been infatuated with over the years as much as horror, it's video games. From the early days of the Atari 2600 up until the XBOX 360, if I haven't owned one of the consoles out there, I've laid my hands on them at least once. Many hours have been whittled away staring at the TV screen with controller in hand, taking away from the time I had to watch my precious horror movies. Thankfully, there have always been a few horror video games out there to cover both bases!
