Splatterhouse on XB360/PS3!

In searching for pictures of the original "Splatterhouse" video game to go with a blog post begging for a modern revamp of the series, I stumbled on something that many horror and video game nerds have known for some time: IT'S ACTUALLY HAPPENING. Granted, I've only played the "Splatterhouse" games on an emulator, but I was always fascinated with the featuring Jason-esque protagonist in ultraviolent (for the time) 2d beat-em-up mayhem. I would have been happy with a re-skinning for XBox Live Arcade, but this is something totally different and exciting!

Horror Headlines 8/7/08

More "Underworld 3" pics. Controversial quote of the day: Rhona Mitra is hotter than Kate Beckinsale... stick that in your pipe and smoke it. (link fixed)

"Return to Sleepaway Camp" DVD cover art, only 5 years too late! Man I can't wait to get my hands on a review copy of this movie, only not for the reasons you might think.

I don't like to report on every little Indie feature because let's face it, most of them aren't worth the time. I have to give props to the makers of "The Lan Party Massacre" though. They sure know how to name a movie. Teaser trailer at the link.

The official site for "Repo: A Genetic Opera" has gotten a total makeover. Unfortunately they didn't CGI out Paris Hilton and her awful singing/acting, but it's still pretty cool nonetheless.

In Real People News: 

Shocker. The alleged "Montauk Monster", has disappeared. It was stolen out of the backyard of the guy who found the monster, where it's been decomposing for about a week now. Wait, what?

Man asks for drink of water during autopsy. The kicker? It was his own. I would love to have seen the look on the doctor's face.

Sexual harrassment case thrown out of Russian court. The reason? According to the Judge, "if we had no sexual harrassment we would have no children". Oooooookay then.

On this day in history: 

1960: Film and television actor David Duchovny is born in New York City.

Midnight Muenster 10

It's time for my side project again, so that means a new Midnight Muenster from Cinema Fromage!

This week we look at two brand spanking new Indie features this week, "Necroville" from Shock-O-Rama and "Blood and Sex Magic" from Bloody Earth Films!

One's pretty damn good for a $10k movie, one not so much!

Find out which one's which!

How I learned to love the Eurozombie.

In 1980, director Andrea Bianchi and writer Piero Regnoli teamed up to cash in on the post-Dawn’ zombie market. What resulted is a movie that even some hard-bitten Euro-zombie lovers place alongside Jean Rollin’s “Zombie Lake” and Jess Franco’s “Oasis of the Zombies” as the worst that living dead cinema has to offer.

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (REVIEW)

In 1924, Rick O’Connell unleashed the mummy of Imhotep while on an archeological dig in Egypt. In 1933 he shipped Imhotep’s corpse to a London museum, only to awaken him once again! It’s now 1947 at the tail end of World War II. Rick and his wife Evelyn have retired from the archeological adventure trade for a quiet life on their large English estate.
