‘BLAIR WITCH’ CREATOR TO DIRECT BIGFOOT FEATURE

Posted on 29th June 2011 by aaron in News - Tags: , , , , , ,

Hot damn, hot damn, hot DAMN! I love bigfoot/sasquatch/skunk ape movies! No matter how shitty, I watch ’em. Ever since bein’ scared shitless as a boy with the killer bigfoot movie NIGHT OF THE DEMON-1980-(not to be confused with NIGHT OF THE DEMONS), and bein’ turned on to THE LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK years ago, I’ve become something of a bigfoot flick connoisseur (CREATURE FROM BLACK LAKE, THE WILD MAN OF THE NAVIDAD, etc…). To add to that, I’m also a huge, HUGE fan of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, so the following news from the ghouls over at Shock Till You Drop has me drooling!

Eduardo Sanchez – the co-director of The Blair Witch Project – is jumping into Bigfoot lore with a planned film trilogy.

The director will helm Exists, a project he penned with his Seventh Moon scribe Jamie Nash.

WETA and Spectral Motion are teaming up to create Bigfoot (whoa!) and shooting is expected to begin this fall just outside of Austin, Texas. Sanchez says Exists will be the first film in a trilogy that explores and re-invents the Bigfoot myth and, as he says, make Bigfoot “scary again.”

Creature performer Brian Steele ( Predators, Hellboy) will play the legendary monster.

SWEEEEEEEEEEEET!!

Night Of The Demon (1980), this flick scared the SHIT out of me!

TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 3D PLOT REVELATIONS

SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT

I have this sick sensation that TCM 3D is going to blow, but then, I always have that feeling whenever I hear about remakes/re-imaginings/rip-offs/hollywood-in-general. Blood, grue, gore, splatter…all in 3D, sure I’ll give it a shot if it hits theaters, I loved watching the MY BLOODY VALENTINE remake in 3D, but it was still a shit movie (tits in 3D was a nice touch, however). Anyway, the boys over at Shock Til You Drop got their claws on a bit of leaked plot details for the upcoming TCM 3D…

Spoiler alert! (Had to say it.)

The new film, set today, will see the authorities and some angry townspeople ambushing the Sawyer home – where Jeb Stuart is accused of carrying out his butchering.

Hooper, the local by-the-book sheriff, had agreed to give Leatherface/Jeb Sawyer a fair trial and grant him a good lawyer…. But that’s before local mayor Burt Hartman, an imposing town tough-guy, arrives with a mob to see that the murderer/s don’t even make it past their front door. Though they both want justice, Hooper and Burt have different methods. Things escalate when Burt’s mob start tying ropes to trees, prepping for a hanging, and ultimately throw a flaming cocktail into the Sawyer home… burning the place, and it’s residents (including Jeb’s father, Drayton, played by Bill Moseley), to the ground.

Goodbye Sawyers…goodbye Leatherface?

You can guess what happens next : The Chainsaw killings start up again (there’s a fun sequence at a carnival where our villain starts chopping away at the attendees) and Hooper is forced to believe that Jeb Stuart somehow survived the fire and is back for revenge. But is it Jeb? And if not, who is it? and why have they surfaced?

To entice the young ones, there’s a young heroine in the film, Heather who – Halloween H20 should maybe get a ’special thanks’ in the credits – learns she has a disturbing connection to the murderous Sawyer. Heather’s a bit of a hornbag but possibly more disturbing is her taste for things of a darker nature (not just referring to her boyfriend either) – like her art pieces which border on revolting. Still, there’s good in this family member and enough intelligence and determination to find out what’s really going on.

THOMAS JANE IN NEW WEREWOLF FILM ‘THE LYCAN’

"Yep, gonna get me them warwulfs!"

"Yep, gonna get me them warwulfs!"

Thomas Jane was recently quoted in an interview with Collider.com that he was returning to horror with an upcoming werewolf film entitled THE LYCAN. Here’s what he had to say:

“I’m doing a werewolf movie called, The Lycan, which is a gothic werewolf romance set in the late 1700s. it’s fuckin’ cool. It’s basically Alien, set in a castle, with werewolves.”

Jesus on a bike, this sounds awful. Don’t get me wrong, werewolves are my favorite, FAVORITE monster (though, if you ask me, there has yet to be the ultimate werewolf movie…I’m working on that…just werewolf movies with a few good parts), but even the title here is awful. Ever since those Underwear, er, Underworld movies, werewolves seem to be called “lycans” which is bullshit. It’s also a period piece, and those are always tricky. I have a feeling we’re going to be seeing a lot of CG bullshit where the werewolf is concerned… No, this movie sounds like utter shit. I’ll probably see it at some point, but it’s going to get it’s due here in the shack, lemme tell ya.

HALLOWEEN 3D FOR 2012 RELEASE?

Posted on 19th June 2011 by aaron in News - Tags: , , , , ,

Apparently the Weinsteins are shittin’ their pants to get the next installment of the abominable Halloween redux franchise out there. Halloween 3D, like we need it, is being rushed with Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer rumored to have shat out a script that would have H3D (I assume that’s what they’ll call it) pick up where H2 left off. Oh glory fuckin’ day. These are the same fellas muckin’ about with a Hellraiser remake, mind you, and who shat out Drive Angry, so let’s all be good boils ‘n ghouls and cross our severed fingers ‘n toes it’ll be good… BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, yeah, right, sure, and I piss rivers of chocolate joy for all the fat boys and girls.

I mean Gawd DAMNIT! We’re in a creativity fuckin’ recession as well, folks. Someone’s gonna have to do something, stand up and fix horror for the fans. And since everyone else keeps fuckin’ things up, I’m gonna have to come outta this shack and whup some ass…

WTF!? ROB ZOMBIE MADE A WOOLITE COMMERCIAL?

Holy shit. Really, Rob Zombie… Really? A fucking Woolite commercial? Why? Because of the money? You’ve slid downhill with your musical career, though granted, that isn’t really what you wanted to do after White Zombie anyway (According to an old Rolling Stone article), though I will admit a few tracks off Hellbilly 2 weren’t half bad. Your movie career is going to shit with those Halloween atrocities. I’m holding my breath for Lords Of Salem, but so far, from what I’ve heard, it doesn’t sound so great. What happened to Tyrannosaurus Rex? Granted, it was a shit title, but the premise sounded BAD ASS! What happened to that shit? And now you’re doing a Woolite commercial? Gotta pay the bills I guess.

NEW DEXTER PROMO FOR SEASON 6

Posted on 18th June 2011 by aaron in News - Tags: , ,

A new promo for the sixth season of Dexter has hit the web. It doesn’t show anything from the upcoming season, but it does get one in the mood for what Dexter has in store for us this fall. Check it out below!

CDC: SUGGESTIONS FOR THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE

That’s right boils ‘n ghouls, THE Centers For Disease Control has put up some advice on what to do in case of the (eventual) zombie apocalypse. Follow the link below to get suggestions for kits and other emergency preparedness for use against the zombie horde. I know we’ve all gone through the scenario with our friends since we saw our first zombie flick, and truthfully, we all know the drill. The CDC suggests, however, that if you’re ready for the zombie apocalypse, you’re ready for anything, which seems to be their point. They don’t seem to actually be taking the idea of a zombie outbreak seriously, but use it more as a tool to teach about emergency preparedness overall. Still, a government organization of any type talking about zombies is pretty damn cool if you ask me.
