Max Payne (REVIEW)

Loosely based on the 2001 video game of the same name, "Max Payne" stars Mark Wahlberg as the hard as nails detective hellbent on solving the mystery of his wife and child's death. Demoted to a glorified file clerk in the cold case department, Max chases any lead he can find in order to locate his wife's killer.

Horror Headlines: Thursday, October 23rd, 2008

Amongst a list of other direct to video announcements, Variety claims Dimension Extreme will be making direct to video sequels to the followup to Rob Zombie's "Halloween". Not that any of the theatrical ones have been decent in a while, but when the "Halloween" franchise goes direct to video, you know it's truly the end of an era.

During the Month of October, FearNET is putting on the 66.6 Second Film Festival, where they edit down some of your favorite genre films to, you guessed it, 66.6 seconds. You can check their latest at the link.

Did you know that the "My Bloody Valentine" remake will be in 3D? If you didn't, then you surely will after you check out it's new over the top poster, at the link.

In Real People News: 

It's one thing to leave a thumbprint at a crime scene... but an entirely different thing to leave your actual thumb. At that point you might as well turn yourself in, at least you'll get your thumb back.

Ever want to see an enormous spider eat a bird? Holy crap, if you don't immediately get the willies from seeing that, you need to go to the doctor because I don't think you have a central nervous system.

In a standoff with a cop and don't have a gun? Bloody tampons seem to work just fine. Oh man, I can't believe I just had to type that. See what you people do to me?

On this day in history: 

4004 BC: According to calculations by 17th century biblical theologian James Ussher, God creates the heavens and the Earth... wait, what?

Bonnie and Clyde vs Dracula (REVIEW)

It takes a lot these days to get me to sit down and watch a low budget, independent feature. Spend enough time running a site like this one, and you see every level of dreck cross your desk, with the threat of having to view their awfulness taunting you like an impending dentist appointment. Needless to say, it's easy to get burnt out doing what we do. Fortunately for us, that's why we keep Casey around. He'll gladly take one for the team and throw himself in the way of a bad movie bullet for us, and that's why he's a stand up guy.

JJ Abrams Star Trek

I haven't heard much mention of the "Star Trek" remake/reboot/re imagining/whatev around these parts. Are we not nerdy enough??

I came upon a piece of internet journalism. I thought it had some good info, so here it is . The new "Trek" is being likened to "Galaxy Quest", which makes me more interested. That's a great movie! Also, side note, I love Simon Pegg.

October Challenge 4

The days grow shorter and so does my attention span. As we reach the far side of the October Challenge, my mind becomes clouded and my constitution runs thin! I like movies, I really like horror movies... It still starts to get hard after 21 days straight, non stop!

As we stand right now, we're exactly 10 days from Halloween and the end of the October Challenge. To help get me threw the twilight of my attention span, it will soon be time to break out the real meat and potatoes, such as a glut of "Friday the 13th", "Nightmares" and "Halloween" of course!
