The October Challenge!

Today is October 1st and you know what that means; it's Halloween season! As Andy Williams once said, "It's the most wonderful time of the year!" Cool temperatures, changing leaves, bonfires and pumpkin beer, who needs Christmas when we got October!

At any rate, this year I'm taking on 'the Challenge': 31 Horror Flicks in 31 Days! And you get to come along for the ride!

Check back every Friday afternoon for a recap of the week's flicks to keep tabs on if I've survived the challenge! Each Friday I'll post capsule reviews of each flick, so it should be fun!

Wish me luck!

Fringe 1.04 "The Arrival"

Horror Headlines 10/1/08

The same guys behind "Halloween: 25 Years of Terror" and "His Name Was Jason", are setting their sights on a "Nightmare on Elm St." documentary, that they would like to have finished by the time the remake hits theaters, presumably some time in 2010.

Meet the Scream Queens!. Or at least the list of 10 VH1 hopefuls who will be participating in their reality show of the same name. As mentioned before on the site, judges will be James Gunn, Shawnee Smith and acting coach John Homa. The winner receives a role in "Saw VI", which I suppose in some way makes perfect sense. The show debuts this October and will run for 8 episodes.

Steve Guttenberg to play slasher killer... and now we have even more signs that the Mayan Doomsday prophecy is coming true.

Straight from the horse's mouth this time, Bill Murray is not only down for "Ghostbusters 3", but he's excited about the team and concept they've put together. He also confirmed that voicing his character for the videogame went a long way in bringing him around on the idea. See, video games bring people together! I always tried to tell my mom that but she would never listen.

The director of the Swedish vampire flick "Let the Right One in", which some of our readers tell me is actually highly awesome, is none too pleased about his movie being remade. He also basically says that stupid Americans should be willing to read subtitles, but hey, I can't really disagree with him on that one.

In Real People News: 

What should we call these chicks, like... the Titty Bandits?. Sorry, but it always comes back to "Home Alone" for me. Also, this happened 40 minutes north of me, in a place where I visit often. Guess I'll keep an eye out for topless chicks in suspenders next time.

Mystery meat washes ashore on New Jersey Beach. Could this be what happened to the Montauk Monster?

Woman chases children in her neighborhood while wearing cow suit, then urinates on neighbors porch. GREATEST. MUGSHOT. EVER. Hands down. I will never be able to say that again after this.

On this day in history: 

2946: The International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg announces verdicts against its Nazi defendants: 3 acquittals, 4 prison terms between 10 and 20 years, 3 life terms, and 11 executions by hanging.

Seriously? New Yngwie Cover Art

Hey there, sorry it's been a few days, I have excuses but I won't bore you all with them.

Have you seen the new Yngwie Malmsteen album cover? Seriously, does he think it's still 1986? Here I thought the cover for "Trilogy" was bad. This album comes out in October, and I almost refuse to review it on principle. That, and you and I both know exactly what it sounds like. Honestly, though. Also, rumor has it Ripper Owens is the frontman for the upcoming tour. Nice to see the man working, but that doesn't make me think anything good or bad about the tour.
