OH GOD JOHN SCALZI IMA GONNA FAINT!

Move your dead bones bones bones....

While I agree with Eric's review of Beyond Re-Animator, I was suprised at no mention of the music video "Move Your Dead Bones" by Dr. Re-Animator. (Edit: He had a screener.)

It's easily the greatest thing to ever come out of the Re-Animator franchise. It's easily the greatest thing to ever come out of mankind in general. I play it on my radio show quite often, but I doubt too many get the reference.

Beware...the J-Screamer!

I could seriously watch two hours of this. Someone get Lionsgate on the horn!!!

Beyond Re-animator (REVIEW)

To be honest, I come into this review with a unique perspective on the "Re-animator" series as a whole. Although I dug the original, I can't help but feel that it's a bit overrated. Also, I got a hearty kick out of the first sequel "Bride of Re-animator," which is strange because I seem to be the only person in the WORLD who liked it. With that said, although it offered a few treats I was mostly disappointed with this trilogy maker.

Horror Headlines 4/10/08

"All the Boys Love Mandy Lane" has had it's release date shifted AGAIN, this time to an undetermined date in August. Some suit somewhere is making a big mistake with this film and at this point, I'll be shocked if we EVER see it in a theater.

Shawnee Smith has been cast in "The Grudge 3", which is already set for a straight to DVD release. Seems like an interesting career move to me, but hey, what do I know. Maybe she's shooting to become the poor man's Sarah Michelle Gellar, in which case this would be the right place to start.

Due to "financial concerns", "Cowboys for Christ", Robin Hardy's long awaited followup to the (original) film "Wicker Man" has stalled. Bummer news for sure, as I think we were all hoping this would wash the taste of Nicholas Cage's version out of our mouths for good.

"Inside" directors talk about their new film and why they left the "Hellraiser" remake. Surprise, surprise, it had something to do with the production's lack of "respect" and changing their original script. Not that that was a hard prediction to make, but I will take the opportunity to pat myself on the back anyways.

In Real People News: 

Two highschool students are in trouble after their teacher found a hitlist that included Chuck Norris' name. I'd say she saved their lives, considering the never-ending pain train they would have experienced if Norris had gotten his hands on them.

There are many ways to get rid of homeless people, chasing after them with a chainsaw seems unorthodox, yet oddly effective all at the same time. And for those who think it's cruel, you've obviously never had to get off the highway in a Florida city... it's like a homeless convention, only there are no celebrities, just people who want your money.

On this day in history: 

1992: Comedian Sam Kinison killed in a car accident.
