His Name Was Jason: A Second Look.

Directed by Daniel Farrands
Anchor Bay Entertainment
Review by Louis Fowler

Smartly released to coincide with the upcoming big-budget re-imagining of the classic slasher film FRIDAY THE 13TH, the extensive documentary HIS NAME WAS JASON is the complete history of the former drowned mongoloid child and current zombified iconic killer Jason Voorhees. Without a doubt, it's the ultimate guide to the FRIDAY films and is seminal for both old fans who need a refresher course and new ones who need a primer fast.

"Left 4 Dead" DLC and SDK Announced, Sorta

More than a month after it was promised, fans of "Left 4 Dead" can finally begin to salivate at coming additions to both the XBOX360 and PC versions of the game. A press release was posted on the Steam website today (somewhat) detailing some major additions and updates coming this spring:

Horror Hodge Podge 2/5/09

A few quick hits here. I have been working with a friend and graphic artist to design a poster and lobby cards for my short film. So, I have all these images that I love stuck in my head. I figured why not share them here, maybe they'll inspire you guys too.

Alison Brady is my flavor of the moment where photography is concerned. Her stuff gives me a surreal Richard Kern type of feeling. Not unlike Aaron Hawks work. Check her out:

Lost 5.4 "The Little Prince"

Hello 'Lost' fans,

Pete here from 'Comics Creepshow' and a few other TV show review blogs. Unfortunately, I have some bad news- we will be Schnaarsless for this particular 'Lost' episode. Don't worry, though, I may not be as eloquent as our fancy podcaster, but I am a New Yorker, and a huge Lostie (or whatever lame name 'Lost' fans call themselves). So, with a little change of format, let's get right into it....

Horror Headlines: Thursday February 5th, 2009

New site and images for "Red Mist" the thriller being released by Anchor Bay on February 10th. It stars Arielle Kebbel, who just came off a starring turn in "The Uninvited".

First image from Clive Barker's "Dread", about a student of philosophy who devises a series of gruesome experiments to study how people react to fear, only to find his own fears lurking just around the corner.

Ti West tries to explain where the hell "Cabin Fever 2" is. The scary part is, if you read between the lines he's basically saying that it's still being edited and he's not in on the process. Oh ya, this is going to turn out great.

Attention sleazy movie executives, Frank Henenlotter will totally let you remake "Frankenhooker", as long as you pay him enough money. Apparently he's had a lot of interest, but hasn't seen a deal that's tickled his fancy yet. He also goes on to say he's not anxious to make movies "just to make movies", and that he'll do it only when the circumstances are right, as they were with his latest festival entry "Bad Biology".

CBS is bringing the teen romance/horror novel "Beastly" to small screens. The plot is this (be sure to cover your mouth before you read this, lest vomit shoot all over your monitor): "a popular but arrogant teenage boy who is turned into a monster by a witch in his class and must find true love to break the curse." Oy vey.

William Forsythe playing John Wayne Gacy? I think I just soiled myself.

"Ghostbusters" figures FTW! I'm not going to lie, I'm totally buying myself an Ecto-1.

In Real People News: 

Can you really arrest someone in Russia for cannibalism in the middle of the winter? Isn't that just how they survive over there?

People are hi-jacking electronic road signs everywhere, inspired by that story we posted on a few weeks back. New vandals have added their own spin though, warning of everything from "Nazi Zombies", to my favorite, "Raptors Ahead".

7/11 robbed with Klingon sword. Should be easy to find the guy, just search every over-40 mother's basement in a 5 mile radius. Couldn't be any farther... Segways don't move that fast.

On this day in history:
