The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2

12 Movies for your Halloween Movie Marathon

Movie marathons are tricky business. Equal parts foresight, improvisation, impulse decision-making, and nostalgia that you really don’t have all that much control over in the long run. You can plan ahead all you want but the energy of a room can turn a slow-burn pee-pants fest into annoying background noise in no time. Add a holiday on top of things, say for example Halloween, and you got more problems than that Jay-Z character.

It's been a hot minute since we heard anything about "Ouija" but according to the producers the film, based on the classic board game, is moving ahead swimmingly and may even hit theaters next October if all goes according to plan. I sounded really cool there for a second with my hip lingo right? "Hot minute". I'm like Eminem or something. I think I may have ruined it with "swimmingly" though. Old people say that.

Fox has dropped word that they'll be putting out a gaggle of new Blu-Ray releases next week, most notably for this sassy news writer is the "Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2" which will be available at the rock bottom price of $13. The disc will hit shelves on September 11 and I'm not 100% sure what sort of special features will be available but if I was to guess, the $13 will get you the movie, a trailer and if you're lucky a DVD case. The last one might be pushing it though.

If there was ever a movie that didn't need a sequel it's "I Spit On Your Grave" but it looks like "Saw IV" writer Thomas Fenton has been tapped to pen the script for just such a film. No word as of yet on what the plot of the second installment of the "guys do awful things to a woman and then she kills them" flick but I can't imagine anything good will come from it. I would be nice if there was some actual spitting on graves though.

A while back we talked about Award Pictures and their quest to make an "Evil Dead" sequel without Sam Raimi or anyone else giving their sweet approval. Well after some paddling and what I assume was some pretty hefty lawyer bills it looks like Raimi has officially shut down production on the film. So I'm sorry folks. You will not get to see an "Evil Dead" that Sam Raimi has had nothing to do with and there is no chance of Bruce Campbell popping up in. I'm sorry.

A guy in Oregon who caught his wife sexting is under arrest after he shot a gun at her, just barely missing her head. In his defense he did consult with his cats before pulling the trigger. You know cats though, they have 0 tolerance.

If I hadn't already received multiple emails from BGH's own Mark this morning I would be worried half to death right now. A Montana man was struck by 2 cars and eventually died after he dressed up as Bigfoot and tried to frighten oncoming motorists. Of course it would take at least 3 Mark's to equal the size of one Bigfoot so that should have been the first give away. He's so tiny.

Chances are most of you have checked out already for the long weekend so I kind of feel like I can say anything I want in the news today and no one will notice. Even if you actually showed up to work and are looking at this copy you're not really reading it. You're thinking of dry humping your best gal on the beach somewhere or whatever the hell it is you'll be doing this weekend. So here it goes... I've never understood why people like "Lord Of the Rings" and I've never found Angelina Jolie attractive. Alright let's do this.

The Spy Kid himself Mason Cook has signed on to play the role of young Eddie Munster in NBC's new series "Mockingbird Lane". For those of you not familiar with the show "Mockingbird Lane" is an updated and much darker retelling of the classic sitcom "The Munsters". One time when I was in middle school I tried to make it with a butter churn.

New Jersey's own Zoe Saldana has been added to the cast of "Machete Kills" and Danny Trejo himself has confirmed that he gets to put his mouth on her. How's that for news? I watched 3 seasons of "Glee" before I realized it was awful.

If there's one complaint I always hear about the classic film "The Exorcist" it's that the film is just too darn scary and needs to be watered down. Well good news for all those who hate awesome things the flick is being remade and for television. The show will be a ten part series and in all fairness with "Martha Marcy May Marlene" director Sean Durkin onboard I don't hate this idea as much as I thought I would. I illegally downloaded 3 Linkin Park songs that I have on my iPod when I run.

Derek Mears, who's been in every horror movie made in the last 15 years, only covered in make up... and Caroline Williams, who played Stretch in "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2", have been added to the cast of the much anticipated "Hatchet 3". My first time was with a girl I met on the internet and never spoke to again after that night.

Sometimes you've got to get the skid marks out and the only way to do that is to break into your neighbor's house and do your laundry. Sometimes that is.

In case you were wondering, Ted Kaczynski, better known as the Unabomber, will not be able to attend his 50th college reunion at Harvard. Ya know, cause of all the bombs and stuff he makes.

I've officially not slept in over 24 hours. Today's news might be an incoherent mess. My big fear here is actually that it will be my best to date and I'll have to start not sleeping for most of the week. I do this for you people! I'm starting to smell.

ABC has officially picked up the new series "666 Park Avenue" which focuses on a couple who tend to an apartment building full of spooky time happenings. Not going to lie I thought they had picked up the show months ago but what the hell do I know. I could be pulling your leg about this entire thing. Maybe there isn't even a show. Maybe ABC isn't even a real station!

Most of us know Caroline Williams as Stretch from "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2" but now the final girl has been cast in a new film titled "Contracted". The film is about a young woman who contracts what she thinks is your average run of the mill STD during a one night stand. Williams will play the girl's mother and confidant when that not so fresh feeling takes over.

BGH's own fancy lad Jon really loved "Daybreakers" so he'll be moistening up his pantaloons when he hears the news that the films directors, the Spierig Brothers, and Ethan Hawke are once again teaming up for a new film. Titled "Predestination", the film follows a secret Government agency who sends their grunts through time to stop murderers and terrorists. Pretty sure there's a new Bruce Willis movie titled "Looper" coming out with almost the same exact plot. I blame you, Jon.

The John Landis produced joint "Some Guy Who Kills People" will see it's way to a DVD release on July 3rd for your viewing pleasure. The DVD will be chock full of commentary, extra footage and the short that inspired the film about a man who snaps and takes out his anger on a group of High School bullies who captured and tortured him. There's also an ice cream parlor, so there's a little something for your sweet tooth, Hans.

In Real People News: 

If you're going to hold up an internet cafe maybe you should think about logging out of Facebook before you go pulling out the gun. Silly internet people.

Soooo 49 headless corpses were found a long the side of the road in Mexico and appear to be related to an ongoing drug war. Please plan your Spring Break festivities accordingly.
