BGH Classic Pack - So Bad It's Good

In a perfect world, we would never watch a film for the podcast that wasn't a fan favorite or cult classic. Unfortunately for us, that is not a feasible outcome. But luckily for you, dear listener, the absolute worst films often make for pure podcast gold.

In this new classic pack -- So Bad It's Good -- we explore five true bottom-of-the-barrel films. Each a laugher of a different stripe, but producing laughers on the podcast that are very predictable.

Horror Headlines: Thursday June 24th, 2010

Although "Survival of the Dead" is a marginal film, that hasn't stopped Magnet from packing the upcoming DVD with a ton of enticing extras. Fine and dandy, but no thanks.

If you've ever wondered what your favorite Star Wars characters would look like as monsters, your dreams have been answered. My inner nerd isn't sure if this is insanely cool or outrageously blasphemous.

Former 80's pop stars Debbie Gibson and Tiffany will star in the original SyFy movie "Mega Python vs. Gatoroid", an event which may signal the end of times. The film is scheduled to air sometime next year.

In Real People News: 

If delivering mail wasn't perilous enough, seagulls have begun savagely attacking Royal Mail employees, which has disrupted service in some areas of England. Alfred Hitchcock always new this would happen.

It's official: Candy cigarettes are now illegal. I guess kids will just have to buy a pack of smokes, instead.

On this day in history: 

1947 - Pilot Kenneth Arnold has a run-in with several mysterious flying saucers near Mt. Ranier, Washington.

Horror Headlines: Monday May 24th, 2010

IFC bolsters its new genre banner IFC Midnight as it snatches up the Mexican cannibal flick "We Are What We Are". The movie was a hit at the recent Cannes Film Festival and is labeled as being like "Let the Right One In".

How's this for an odd tie-in? George Romero will be releasing "Survival of the Dead" on the Playstation Network a few days before its theatrical debut on May 28th. What better way to watch it on the PSN than with your own PS3 Slim signed by Romero himself!

It's well known already that the classic "Famous Monsters of Filmland" magazine will be making its return to news stands. Now they're going one step further by announcing the "Famous Monsters of Filmland: Reboot" movie series! Teaming with low-budget studio Halcyon, they will be bringing re-imagined reboots of 5 classic monster franchises.

In Real People News: 

I'm going to take this opportunity to brighten up your Monday morning. Matador Julio Aparicio was feeling pretty good about his performance until the bull gored him through the jaw, up through his tongue, and into the roof of his mouth. Feeling brave this morning? Be sure to click through for the gruesome pictures!

In an effort to curb piracy, Warner Brothers decided to pirate MPV's Anti-Piracy software! MPV approached Warner with the software in 2003 and were turned down; sadly it appears that Warner is still using the technology to this day.

On the Next Podcast: "Survival of the Dead"

With the sun shining the flowers blooming I'm happy to report the Podcast crew will be spending this weekend in the basement watching George A. Romero's latest zombie flick "Survival of the Dead".

Trailer: New "Survival of the Dead" Red Band Trailer

Think you've seen it all in a zombie film my friends? Well think again! The red band trailer for George A. Romero's next film "Survival of the Dead" is up and running and guess what? It's got a zombie on a horse! Yes the clip is short and you don't get to enjoy the zombie horse riding in all its horse glory but still it's pretty exciting. I almost like the fact that you don't see the horse. Maybe it's a zombie horse? I don't know, the possibilities are really endless. I need to calm down.

Horror Headlines: Friday February 26th, 2010

I had to force myself awake, gasping for air this morning. I had a nightmare that left me quite shaken, causing me to run late. It took place at Horrorhound Weekend, only it was a real ghetto version, taking place in some hippie's backyard. I had my dog Hoogie with me and we were sitting on a porch-swing as a guy who looks like a fat Devendra Banhart shoved a corn-dog that had been dipped in LSD in my mouth. I go off wandering in the desert, waking up next to HHW-pal Jay at Amy and Freddy NOTLP's house. I started to call Hoogie, but couldn't find him and began panicking.

It was damn-near impossible to navigate through the waters of horror-news outlets today as every single page that I clicked on greeted me with a rollover, a pop-up or a redirect for “The Crazies”. One of them even crashed my Goddamned browser. So, as of now, I refuse to to see “The Crazies”. I don't care anymore. Look, ad-men: as a member of the horror community, I am at full awareness that “The Crazies” is out today. Most of us are. Is all this repetitive, intrusive and downright asinine advertising really necessary? It's 9:40 AM on opening day and I'm already burned out on this overexposed remake. I hope it fails, and fails miserably.

Speaking of failing miserably, Bloody Disgusting has the one-sheet for George Romero's latest flogged-to-death horse, Survival of the Dead. It looks like you think it would, with cheaply painted zombies reaching out to grab you, trying desperately to escape the mediocrity.

Last Wednesday, our good pal Casey wrote a fun little piece entitled “9 Insane Asylum Movies” in honor of the release of “Shutta I-lin, Ya Wikked Pissa Bastids”. Meanwhile, over at something called Horror-Movies.ca, they've got a weak-sauce variation called “5 Best Horror Films Set in Mental Institutions”. Our's obviously had thought and care put into it. Their's, on the other hand, had “Gothika”. Ahem.

In Real People News: 

In my hometown of Oklahoma City, a 23-year-old guy died in a “Toughman Contest” after receiving a traumatic brain injury. NOT SO TOUGH ARE YOU NOW, ASSHOLE? (He leaves behind pregnant fiancé, LOL.)

In Irvine, California, a man who two weeks earlier had his hand severed by a Metrolink train, fell on the tracks and was dragged 87-feet BY THE SAME TRAIN. NOT SO TOUGH ARE YOU NOW...oh, wait...you lived. Wow, dude, you should be in a Toughman Contest!

On this day in history: 

In 1952, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill announces that his nation has an atomic bomb. Sadly, the country wouldn't have dental care for fifty more years. Pip-pip!

Horror Headlines: Thursday December 10th, 2009

Generally speaking, a poster for an upcoming big-budget Hollywood remake isn't much of a news item. However, the latest "Clash of the Titans" poster is seriously badass, and worthy of your attention. Medusa would be proud.

British zombie fans, rejoice! Apparently, George A. Romero's upcoming "Survival of the Dead" will infect Region 2 DVD players on March 15th, 2010. Stateside fanatics, I'm afraid, may have a while to wait.

If, for some strange reason, Oren Peli's "Paranormal Activity" left you wanting more, be sure to check out the new digital comic book available exclusively on iTunes. Remember: That's boredom you're experiencing, not demonic possession.

Those jonesing for another installment of the new "Friday the 13th" franchise aren't going to be happy, as the sequel to Marcus Nispel's dodgy remake has been moved to an undetermined date. Given the film's lukewarm reception, I'm honestly not surprised.

In Real People News: 

Norwegian stargazers were shocked and a little horrified to find a series of incredibly mysterious blue lights hovering overhead. Blame the Russians, I say.

As much as your smelly redneck neighbors may annoy you, at least they're not using their free time to feed and nourish the local vulture population. I'm creeped out just thinking about it.

On this day in history: 

1993 - At a ceremony performed inside a London temple, Adolf Hitler is baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Horror Headline: Monday September 25th, 2009

If "Survival of the Dead" goes well, George Romero plans to make more sequels. At this point, "beating a dead horse" doesn't even apply anymore.

Early concept art for "Night of the Living Dead: Origins", the so-called "3D American Anime" remake of the Romero classic. Although, someone a lot nerdier than me is going to have to explain to you what the hell that means.

Danny Trejo scores a role in Robert Rodriguez's "Predators".

In Real People News: 

I don't know what kind of a person would complain about women taking their clothes off at an espresso bar, but I think it's safe to say that they're not very good Americans.

A great way to judge how terrible war can be, is by recalling the ways in which people try to get out of it..

Wow... this is just... wow.

On this day in history: 

1978: A nun at the Vatican discovers the lifeless body of Pope John Paul I, formerly Albino Luciani, in bed. The pontiff had been on the job only 33 days before unexpectedly dying in his sleep, after having taken some sort of pills with dinner. The church refuses to grant an autopsy.

New "Survival of the Dead" clip on Romero's MySpace page

Zzzzzzzzzzzz...what? Oh, there's a new clip of the Sarge character talking about the scenario of "Survival of the Dead" up on George Romero's MySpace page.
