Big news kids! "The Walking Dead" has been picked up for a second season and I've also completed this big ass puzzle I've been working on for months. The first part of that is probably the news you want to pay attention to. But seriously, that puzzle was a giant f'er, lots of blue and stuff.

A release date for the long awaited remake of Troma's "Mothers Day" has finally been announced. In a bold move the film will be released on April 11th, a full month before the real Mother's Day. Well played big wigs, well played.

The trailer for Uwe Boll's latest film "Bloodrayne: The Third Reich" has finally hit the tubes. It's a vampire hunter flick based on a video game that's set in Nazi Germany. The fact that Boll is German doesn't make that weird at all.

By a show of hands, who wants to see Danny Trejo fight a monster created by a drug lord. Just as I thought! Everyone in America wants to see that, everyone! You're welcome, here's "Project X23". Now, who wants to see the government give me a giant swimming pool filled with beer?

In Real People News: 

I don't care if it rains or freezes long as I have the world's largest Jesus! Thanks Poland, you've done it again!

I usually just wear my "These Colors Don't Run" t-shirt to get out of jury duty but this guy has topped me. An Ohio man was excused after he reveled he was a childhood friend of Jeffrey Dahmer. Yup, that'll do it.

On this day in history: 

1888 – Jack the Ripper kills Mary Jane Kelly, his last known victim.

Bigfoot (REVIEW)

I love it when films surprise me. I’ll admit, I picked up this movie expecting a complete turd. How could a film shot for $40,000, distributed by Troma and simply titled “Bigfoot” be anything but a non-stop crap-fest? I had expectations. I expected to see a guy running around in a super fake gorilla costume, slaying poorly developed characters in comical fashions. I expected to laugh out loud at inane, ridiculous dialogue. I expected to hate this movie, but really enjoy hating it. I was expecting “Troll 2: Bigfoot Takes Nilbog”.

Horror Headlines: Monday October 18th, 2010

Where do Werewolves go when they die? For decades we thought we'd never know. But the film "Zombie Werewolves Attack", which was just picked up by Troma for distribution, is here to give us answers. They turn into Zombies, that's the answer. You should have figured that out by title alone.

Christian E. Christiansen, a guy who's most notable credit is a Danish series called "Mikkel og guldkortet", is rumored to be the next in line to direct the "Hellraiser" remake. Fret not though, Amber Heard is also rumored to be landing a role in the film and she's famous for, well being hot and stuff.

Mia Wasikowska, who you all remember as Alice from the "Alice in Wonderland" has been offered a role in the upcoming big screen adaptation of "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies". Bradley Cooper has apparently also been offered a role so I'm officially declaring today's news the hunkiest in BGH history.

Finally last night at the 2010 Scream Awards the trailer for "Scream 4" apparently premiered and thanks to the power of cell phones there's now 100 youtube videos of the trailer with tons of crowd noise. Enjoy!

In Real People News: 

I consider myself to be a sensitive guy but this sounds like the worst idea ever imagined. Air New Zealand is planning on rolling out a "cuddle class" next year which would put couples in seats the fold down so the love birds can snuggle during the flight. Congratulations New Zealand, you just found another reason while I'll never visit you.

On this day in history: 

1898 - The American flag was raised in Puerto Rico shortly before Spain formally relinquished control of the island to the United States.

Horror Headlines: Wednesday March 31st, 2010

These new production stills from "A Nightmare on Elm Street" would lead us to believe that the movie could be good and gory. We'll have to wait until April 30th to see if this promise rings true.

In a recent interview, Lloyd Kaufman lets slip that there are a number of Troma movies in talks for possible remakes including "Poultrygeist" and "Class of Nuke 'Em High". One would normally take news like this from Lloyd with a grain of salt, but the "Mother's Day" remake has already wrapped and "The Toxic Avenger" is in talks, so stranger things have happened!

Not to let Sam Worthington steal all the godly thunder, Stephen Dorff has signed on to "War of the Gods", another Greek monster fighting montage.

Though we have yet to lay eyes on any of her genre rolls yet, young actress Chloe Moretz has signed on for the serial killer opus "The Fields". With her upcoming turns as our fanged lead in the upcoming remake "Let Me In" and her ass kicking antics in "Kick-Ass", she sure seems to enjoy the genre work.

In Real People News: 

21 dead babies have been found under a bridge in Jinning City, China. Sadly, all signs point to underhanded tactics by a local hospital as 8 of the infants had labels complete with biohazard bags showing their treatments and time of death.

Heartbroken after hearing his ex was going to marry another man, a young man in Central Java hacks off his own penis to show how he felt about the news. To further drive the point home, he then threw his junk down a local well.

On this day in history: 

1991 - Danny Bonaduce arrested for assault after he fought with a transvestite prostitute.

Horror Headlines: Monday December 28th, 2009

The family of the late Dan O'Bannon has launched a new website to celebrate his career. For fans, there is no better place to celebrate O'Bannon's genre legacy, including info on his final script as well as future zombie project he had intended to direct.

Did you get a shiny new Blu-ray player for Christmas? What better way to break it in than with a copy of "Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead" in HD!. The disc arrives on February 23rd.

To help soothe your post holiday blues, new stills have surfaced from the upcoming Nicholas Cage feature, "Season of the Witch". His hair alone is bound to give you a few laughs.

Sure, "American Psycho" is 10 years old now and a new TV airing of the film isn't exactly news worthy. However, this New Zealand billboard promoting the airing on TV2 is pretty amazing!

In the wake of Brittany Murphy's death, DVD rental source Redbox scrambled to pull the cover art from Murphy's last film, "Deadline" across the country. The images of the actress lying dead in a bathtub felt a little too close to home for Redbox... they're probably right.

In Real People News: 

An 84 year old Indian politician resigns his post after a sex tape featuring himself with three women surfaces. Rumors state that his next post will be as a spokesman for Viagra.

Japan's oldest stripper prepares to celebrate her 70th birthday. The world prepares to vomit.

Staff at the Great Yarmouth Sea Life center in Norfolk are cutting brussel sprouts from their menu because the resulting turtle farts are tripping overflow sensors in the tanks. It's the same reason I stay away from them... wouldn't want to gas the family at the dinner table.

On this day in history: 

1987 - R. Gene Simmons kills two coworkers and injures four others in Russellville Arkansas, and then surrenders. The workplace carnage comes after Simmons kills 14 relatives over the Christmas holiday.

Troma's Jamie Grecco on The Rachael Ray Show

Recently my wife and I complained to our landlord so much about how loud our neighbors were that he finally got fed up and let us switch to a different apartment for free. Hell hath no furry like my wife when she's pissed off. But I can't imagine the random blasting of Lisa Loeb we heard was half as bad as what the people who live next to Jamie Grecco have to put up with.

Toxie Opens the Stock Exchange?

Yes, you heard that right; your favorite b-movie mutant and mine, Toxie, rung the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange Monday morning!

From the press release:

"August 31, 2009 (New York, NY) – On the morning of August 31, Lloyd Kaufman’s iconic monster superhero the Toxic Avenger rang the bell at the New York Stock Exchange. This momentous occasion was broadcast live on Fox News and CNBC."

The Seduction of Dr. Fugazzi (REVIEW)

A Troma release in name, something altogether different artistically, "The Seduction of Dr. Fugazzi" straddles the line between a number of different genres. On one hand the movie is a glorified resume for writer/director/producer/star October Kingsley. On the other hand it is an overblown art school film that traipses into the nonsensical and trippy realms of pretension. Despite all this, it still manages to hold yet another facet that transcends the eye rolling and confusion, helping it to become a movie that has a decent little plot twist and an okay story... In Hindsight.

Llyoyd Kaufman Explains “Information Juice”

What is “information juice”? I’m not 100% sure but maybe you can figure it out after watching this five minute clip Troma’s own Llyoyd Kaufman delivered to the Independent Film and Television Alliance. The alliance is an association of independent producers and distributors of motion picture and television programming, that Kaufman also happens to be Chairperson of.
