List with a Twist: My Zombie Marathon

In the immortal words of John Oliver, “There have always been motherfuckers, there will always be motherfuckers, but what we can't do is let them control our motherfuckin' lives”.

December is here and there is a LOT going on!! After some fantastic input from so many if you on the site (anti-shenanigans for sure!), combined with some of personal zombie favorites, my 'Superzombie Fest' has officially started and it is already one for the ages.

Musicals That Don't Star Zac Efron

BGH TRIPLE FEATURE:

With this triple feature, we take a look at two new “horrmusicals” (I just invented that term—patent pending!) and one bizarre classic that has finally been released…so get those jazz hands ready! And a one, a two, a one two three go...


POULTRYGEIST: NIGHT OF THE CHICKEN DEAD

Horror Headlines: Wednesday December 3rd, 2008

Leave it to Paramount to fuck up yet again. Here they are finally making up for the lackluster "Friday the 13th" box set they released a few years ago - granted only to make money off of the remake - but the announcements of Part 1 being uncut and Part 3 being in 3D had me excited. Well, don't get too worked up yet, because they still insisted on making their own shitty covers to replace the amazing old poster art. On top of that, it's revealed that Part 3 will have NO SPECIAL FEATURES... unless of course you count a trailer, but since it's not 1998 I don't. Looks like I'll be making a tough decision when this gets released early next year.

Pictures of Tiffany Shepis from her new film "New Terminal Hotel". Other genre vets starring in this pic include Ezzra Buzzington, Stephen Geoffreys and Corey Haim.

"Punisher: War Zone" director Lexi Alexander is up for the directing gig of the "Jonah Hex" adaptation. Her reason for interest centers mainly on Josh Brolin, who is still waiting for a director to be picked before he will officially sign on. I would be excited for this, except I've seen the trailer for "War Zone" and can't shake the feeling it's going to suck. Anyone else have thoughts on this?

Maybe you can make sense of the promo reel for "Paris By Night of the Living Dead", which is essentially a French Zombie/Action/Martial arts film.

In Real People News: 

Next time you go hunting, make sure you killed that Deer before you approach it... because it may just come back to life for a short time and try to kill your ass. It's like the ending of every slasher ever, only with antlers.

If you have horses make sure you lock them up... because this dude wants to have sex with them. That is all.

Film producer makes "Gay" version of the bible to make some sort of statement. This should be interesting.

This story is pretty amazing. NHL player uses press to make bold statement about his "sloppy seconds". That guy is officially cooler than everyone.

On this day in history: 

1984: Methyl isocyanate leaks from a Union Carbide pesticide plant located at a slum in Bhopal, India. The gas kills 4,000 people and injures 200,000 others, many of whom were permanently blinded or disabled.

HEROES 3.011 - "THE ECLIPSE Part II"

The other working title for this episode was "NOPE, IT IS NOT OVER YET", and by that I mean my suffering.

I actually get yelled at for watching 'HEROES' now. I am usually at my girlfriend's house and she and her brother will end up saying "Oh, Stop with the HEROES", on Monday nights.

A week or two ago, I would shrug off the complaints, and remember back to the time I watched Season 2 straight through, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Most people disliked Season 2 and I eagerly burned right through it.

So why does watching season 3 feel like a chore?

Horror Headlines: Tuesday, December 2nd 2008

Rob Zombie is back for "Halloween 2". Oh, that's way better than the visionaries who made "Inside". Oh wait, no, no it's not.

Really sweet throwback poster for "Night of the Demons", the remake currently in post production from Adam Gierasch. The remake has a similar story to the original, and stars Shannon Elizabeth, Diora Baird, Monica Keena, Tiffany Shepis, and will even have a cameo from Linnea Quigley.

"Thankskilling Turkey" comes to us a little late, but they still get an A for that title. Genius. Okay... maybe not genius, but certainly ballsy in it's obviousness.

Guillermo Del Toro is working on a stop motion adaptation of the Raold Dahl children's book "Witches". This is of course on top of the mountain of other projects, which some have claimed will have him booked for roughly the next decade. I know he's sort of a fanboy's dream, but is anyone else starting to resent him for sticking his finger in too many pies? I say enough with the announcements, it's time to shit or get off the pot.

In Real People News: 

This real life restaurant is sort of like the one seen in "Waiting", except you know, creepy and filled with actual sexual harrassment. Turns out it's not as funny when Ryan Reynolds isn't the one showing you his balls.

A leader at a Christian University charged for grabbing the junk of an undercover officer at a park known to be a gay cruising spot. There's not a lot of leeway for denying that one.

So, do you find this young, shirtless, quite strapping depiction of Hitler that aired on Dutch TV recently to be offensive? I'm not sure. The show's creators claim it was supposed to be a statement on the European travel industry or something. I just can't get over Hitler's abs... this guy's been using his ab-roller.

On this day in history: 

1938: Albert Kessel and Robert Lee Cannon put down in California's brand spanking new gas chamber.
