Comics Creepshow 8: Criminal Macabre


Last week I mentioned that both of the big Steve’s, Stephen King and Steve Niles, had comic book work coming out this month. For King, having his work translated into the comic book form is a major event. For Niles, a new comic coming out isn’t rare at all. Niles is one of the most prolific writers, not only in horror comics, but in comics in general. You may be familiar with his vampire saga, 30 DAYS OF NIGHT, but Niles has a project even closer to his heart- CRIMINAL MACABRE.

Horror Headlines 9/26/08

George Romero is currently filming a zombie film, but reports are claiming that it's NOT a sequel to "Diary of the Dead". Exactly what the film is was not made clear, but it definitely has flesheaters and is set on an island. Strange news indeed, considering this has been DOTD2 all along, and a synopsis has already been released.

Really disgusting poster for the Australian film "Dying Breed"... like, so disturbing that it's been banned in it's homeland. Also of note, Schnaars has seen this film and loved it. And who are you to argue with Schnaars?

Some new, not very interesting stills from "Friday the 13th". So why am I telling you about them? That's a good question.

In Real People News: 

Man goes into hospital for circumcision, wakes up to find his penis has been amputated. I told them it wasn't a good idea to hire Michael J. Fox as a surgeon, but no one ever listens to me.

We can all rest easy now, Sarah Palin has been blessed to protect her from Witchcraft. Finally! Maybe I can actually get some sleep tonight... since you know, that's been taken care of.

Italian CEO beaten to death by laid off worker. Now that's Democracy in action folks.

On this day in history: 

1687: Troops laying siege to Athens led by Venetian general Francesco Morosini rain cannonfire down on the Acropolis and the Turkish soldiers garrisoned inside. One cannonball penetrates the Parthenon, which happened to serve as the Turks' gunpowder magazine. The roof, walls, and 16 columns are blown off by the resulting explosion.

Nice to be aboard and have an outlet...

Good evening, good evening, please find your seats and hold all applause until the end of the performance.

First off, a hearty thank you to BGH for having me aboard and letting me stain their otherwise praise-worthy portal with my incoherent ramblings.

(Editor's Note: Hey guys, Drew is a good friend of mine who will be writing about all things Heavy Metal here at BGH. He should be along later today to set up his profile/avatar, but I wanted to get this review up this morning so here you go. In the meantime, please welcome him in the comments!)

On IMDB, the first three keywords for VAMPIRE STRANGLER are as follows: no budget, nudity, small breasts.

Yep, that about sums up the film.
