Top Ten Terrifying Cinema Characters not in Horror movies

On the podcast, a few of the guys have mentioned scary characters not found in horror movies. I wanted to add my two cents. Here is a list I put together with a few of my coworkers, of characters that scared us when we were kids, and a few that creep us out today......

10) Large Marge from 'Pee Wee's Big Adventure'--- "Tell them Large Marge Sent you!" -- The famous words of the demonic truck driver still send a shiver down my spine, well over a decade later.

Tony Todd to star in "24" Prequel

When musing about the potential blockbuster on-screen showdowns after Freddy Vs Jason was released, I can't honestly say that 'Jack Bauer Vs Candyman' was high on my list, but now that I've heard the news, I'm not all that disappointed.

Midnight Meat Train in NYC

I know there is a handful of folks in the New York area 'round these parts... I just happened upon the site for the Sunshine Cinema in search of fun and frivolity, and I saw that "Midnight Meat Train" is screening Friday and Saturday night. So here is our chance to catch it on the big screen at an amazing theater.

Horror Icon 2D Fighting Game!

Prepare to soil your pants... like, literally. Go grab some paper towels and put them underneath your ass because you're going to be thankful you did after you watch this video:

In addition to that, Sitges has commissioned some fairly well known directors to make fake trailers for viral promotion purposes, and this one for "Exorcist V" by [REC] director Jaume Balaguero is pretty freaking sweet.

Picture from the Scifi Channel's remake of "The Children of the Corn". I wish every remake were made for Scifi, so when it was released it would just be ignored and fade into the night like the shit-stain that it is. Okay that was kind of harsh, but you know what I mean.

The trailer for "Teen Zombies in Love" is actually a lot better than you would imagine from the title. That doesn't change the fact that Mark's head is exploding somewhere right now however.

This trailer for "Fear(s) of the Dark" is the scariest thing I've seen all week. The project was made by 6 of France's leading graphic designers, and features traditional black and white animation. Of course there's also the yellows, but I suspect that will just be urine running down the pant legs of the audience members. Seriously though, WATCH THE TRAILER.

In Real People News: 

So apparently, you can have sex with a car. And here I always thought that was just a cheeky joke. The picture at the link proves I was wrong.

If the Saudi government weren't so bat-shit crazy, I might be inclined to agree with them that Mickey Mouse is "one of Satan's Soldiers". Just wait until someone finally rips the copyrights to him from Walt Disney's cold dead hands, when we'll finally see what Lloyd Kaufman would do with Mickey. Now that would be unwholesome.

If you're in Poland and are a sex offender, they're going to take your balls. Sorry, that's just the price you pay for being a pedophile in a former Soviet bloc country.

On this day in history: 

1908: Thomas E. Selfridge becomes the world's first airplane fatality when the craft he's co-piloting with Orville Wright crashes near Fort Meyer, Virginia. An untested propeller ripped apart the plane's structure, causing it to nosedive from an altitude of 75 feet.
