Advanced Friday the 13th Review!

Waiting on line for over two hours, I was as excited to go see ‘Friday The 13th’ a week in advance, as I was skeptical of whether it would live up to the recent hype. Truth be told, I haven’t been impressed with any straight up Slasher films that have come out in the past five years. The most recent, ‘My Bloody Valentine’, was not only a disappointment but an uneventful and painful experience akin to having a drawn out conversation about coupons with my grandmother. To add to that skepticism, was the fact that Jason Vorhees has never been scary to me.

Lost 5.5: "This Place Is Death"

I finally caught up on last week's episode, "The Little Prince," and part of me got a little nervous. It felt a lot like they were rushing through some plotlines and not really moving on others. Not bad per se, but not up to par with the previous couple of episodes. Luckily, things got back on track this week.

Episode: "This Place Is Death"

BGH Book Club- The Dead Travel Fast

Eric Nuzum's "The Dead Travel Fast," is a book that dares to ask the question "why do people like vampires so much?" Whether he's trying to get contacts in the vampire world, tracing the footsteps of Bram Stoker or Vlad The Impaler, or just watching as many vampire movies as he can stomach, Nuzum does his best to understand the evolution of vampires in pop culture and their emergence in our popular lexicon.

Inglorious Basterds Trailer

Here's the first trailer for Quentin Tarantino's World War II sickie "Inglorious Basterds" (mispelling is his). I stopped reporting on it a while ago because it's clearly not a horror film, but I thought I should post this trailer since it's the first real thing we've seen from this film. I think I dig it, although I don't really understand what kind of accent Brad Pitt is supposed to have, and I can't look at the intenionally mispelled title without thinking of the word "turds". Still, Tarantino sure knows how to film some people being dismembered, so I'm excited.

Heroes 3.14 "Trust and Blood"

I have a metaphor for 'Heroes', after watching two episodes of this half of the season: "Heroes' is like the significant other you fell in love with immediately but, over time you got to see their severe flaws. You ponder constantly over whether or not you should dump them, and then, right before you pull the plug, they start showing you some of the magic of the old days.
