BGH Classic Pack - Remake-Apolooza!

Over at the podcast, few topics get our hackles up as much as remakes. Offensive. Derivative. Misguided. You name it, we've said it.

If you missed out on some of our more vitriolic podcast episodes, now's your chance to enjoy the hate. Our first BGH Classic pack offers the chance to re-live the drama.

Newsblip: "Sorority Row" hits DVD this February

Word just hit the web that Stewart Hendler's "Sorority Row" remake will be hitting DVD shelves February 23rd, 2010. The podcast crew was fairly positive on the film, but either way, it's sure to make your winter a little warmer this year. Check back here for more details when they're available.

After a little unscheduled break, the Box Office Special is back. And after a messy streak of flops, horror looks to be back too, with "Zombieland" flying out of the gates with a number one finish in its opening weekend. Let's catch up with a handy little chart:

Sorority Row (REVIEW)

If, like me, you've been waiting for a movie to come along and blow up the myths and hypocrisies that surround sorority life, you can, sadly, keep waiting. However, if you've been waiting for a movie that panders to the basest, most exploitative stereotypes of college students and sorority girls in particular, you my friend are in luck, because "Sorority Row" is just such a film. It is also -- sometimes seemingly as an afterthought -- a modestly competently neo-slasher.

Horror Headlines: Wednesday September 2nd, 2009

So... I do have to admit that I haven't seen "The Host" yet. The reason I say that is because here's the first still from the sequel. Does the creature in the first film look that terrible? Please inform.

Excited for Mike Dougherty's "Trick 'R Treat" this Halloween? Now you can enter a fan-art contest being sponsored by Warner Bro's for the release. Check it out!

Here's the final one-sheet for "Sorority Row". Not as sexy as the others, but that was a hard track record to live up to.

Ben Ketai has been hired to direct the "30 Days of Night" sequel, subtitled "Dark Days". The film will follow Melissa George's character (recast apparently) as she heads back to Las Angeles and intentionally attracts the local vampire population to get revenge for her husband's death. So, we recast the lead and take the story out of the arctic circle? Count me out.

In Real People News: 

Sony is accelerating their plans to release a 3D flatscreen television. Sweet, this means I can finally sit through "My Bloody Valentine 3D" again.

Note to potential criminals... spray paint is not an effective way to mask your identity. Well I guess that's not entirely true, but it could also kill you, which might put a crimp in your plans.

On this day in history: 

1666: A kitchen fire breaks out in Thomas Farynor's bakery on Pudding Lane, unleashing four days of destruction. 436 acres in the city are converted to ash, including 13,200 homes. 200,000 residents are rendered homeless by what comes to be known as the Great Fire of London.

Thee Minutes Of "Sorority Row"

We’re just a couple weeks away from the release of “Sorority Row” and I couldn’t be more excited. I didn’t go to a college with frats or anything so I feel like this is my one big chance to really get the full treatment. The clip below for example shows all the fun of a typical sorority party. Unprotected sex, STDs and roofies just to name a few. Really makes you think about going back to college doesn’t it?

So take a look and let us know what you think. Seems like a good time to me. “Sorority Row” will be in theaters on September 11th.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday August 25th, 2009

This morning brings the news that 2010 will see an "Exorcist" Blu-ray, with both existing cuts of the film.

Check out this "age restricted" clip from "Sorority Row". It's not restricted for the reason(s) I would have liked, but it's a slow news day so we'll take what we can get.

Hey guess what, there's literally a white horse in "Halloween 2". And why shouldn't there be. Ya, no, this is going to be great.

"Train", the film that was originally a remake of "Terror Train" but then turned out not to be, will be going direct to DVD on November 17th. The film stars Thora Birch, so at least it's got that going for it.

In Real People News: 

When the department bought their officers shiny new stunguns, I'm sure they weren't picturing they'd start out with them by lighting a hobo on fire. But hey, at least it's a good story.

The lesson is clear here, if you "snitch" on someone, this bizarrely calm woman will dismember you and make you watch. So, that's pretty good motivation not to be a snitch.

You can sort of chalk the first time this kid set his friend on fire up to a youthful mistake, but it's a little harder to say that about the second time.

On this day in history: 

1835: The New York Sun publishes stunning revelations that Sir John Hershel has observed little men living on the surface of the moon. The stories, now generally believed to be false, brings the paper record circulation.

Online "Sorority Row" Game Lets you Kill Women!

You know what the world needs? More games where you throw a tire iron at a bunch of hot girls who are hiding in the shower. Luckily the “Sorority Row” website has stepped up to the plate to fill the void in all our lives. Sure the controls are a little awkward but that’s part of the game's charm. I spent a solid hour playing the game before I could kill all five of the beauties.

Horror Headlines: Thursday August 13th, 2009

Looks like there's another "Riddick" movie coming our way in the future... because if it's one thing we all need, it's more Vin Diesel??

The remake of "The Legend of Boggy Creek" has a cast. In other news, "The Legend of Boggy Creek" is being remade? There aren't even words to describe this remake disease anymore.

New "Sorority Row" poster, again, utilizing it's biggest um... "assets". I'm ashamed to say it's sort of working on me.

Brian Singer might be directing a "sequel" to the 70's "Battlestar Galactica" series? Doesn't that seem odd when the Syfy series actually has a fairly big following? Nothing is concrete at this point, but the rumor is that Universal is pursuing Singer to produce and possibly direct the film.

Here's a cool story... Clive Barker to produce television series penned by Marcus Dunston and Patrick Melton, who wrote and directed "The Collector" which just came out recently. The series is about a "haunted hotel". Sounds pretty sweet!

In Real People News: 

Next time someone tells you American television is out of control, you could probably point them in the direction of this Brazilian fellow who was just arrested for having murdering people, for the sole purpose of having gruesome murders to report on his crime show. Pretty sure there's a movie script in there somewhere... have at it writers!

Live in California? Love testicles? Well you're in luck, as Santa Cruz County is about to hold their first ever "testicle festival". At the festival, farmers and ranchers will be serving up all different kinds of animal nuts. Enjoy!

On this day in history: 

1521: After an 80-day siege, Spanish conquistador Hernando Cortés captures Tenochtitlan, capital of the Aztec Empire. When the Spaniards fail to discover Montezuma's treasure, they torture Cuauhtemoc by pouring hot oil over his feet. The emperor responds by asking, "Am I on a bed of roses?" They hang him three years later.
