Why Rourke Should Have Won

Mickey Rourke may have been snubbed at the Oscars, but he did get his Best Actor win at the Spirit Awards the night before, and this speech proves why he should win every award ever given out for everything.

Um, I don't know what you do honey.

Possible NSFW-ness for gratuitous F Bombs on live television, disgusting facial surgery aftermath and general pimptasticness. I can't possibly imagine why this guy has trouble landing jobs in Hollywood.

Full S. Darko Trailer

Good morning horror fans. Got a little treat for you here on a Sunday. It's the full trailer for "S. Darko", the sequel to the 2000 cult hit "Donnie Darko".

We saw a very limited teaser for it a few weeks back that showed next to nothing, but here's the full-on trailer for your viewing pleasure. I can say I'm cautiously intrigued at this point.

Lynch, Burton's First Short Films

This stuff was brought to my attention by a recent Hollywood Saloon article, that brought together a bunch of shorts from famous directors. I pulled out these two specific ones for the horror connection, and figured it was a good end of the day post for Friday. Hope you guys enjoy.

This first one is called "The Alphabet", and was the first film David Lynch ever made, way back in 1968:

Spike Finds PG Porn Not So PG

Guess Joe was pretty prophetic the other day when he said to me that the next installment of James Gunn's "PG Porn" was probably going to feature "full on insertion". Turns out one of the higher-ups at Spike (where the file's hosted), got wind of the latest installment "Squeal Happy Whores" and wasn't very happy. From James Gunn's Myspace blog:

I Eat Cannibals Music Video

No matter where you are when you watch this, you will become convinced that someone has slipped you some brown acid. Even sitting in your cubicle at work, you will think that the guy next to you that you hate has found a way to slip some mescaline into your coffee. I promise.

Make sure to stick around till about the 1:45 mark, to see some of the most mindblowing choreography that has ever been laid to celluloid. And hugs and kisses to whoever can explain to me what the fuck "I Eat Cannibals" is supposed to mean.

Watchmen Schwag Sexy, Responsible

I've been staring at this all day trying to come up with something clever to say about it, and all I keep thinking about is the term "Smurf Penis". So... ya.

Here's the story, in case you want to ruin the one you've already come up with:

A source told WatchmenComicMovie.com that he and his friends were “handed a few of these Watchmen condoms in Columbus, Ohio over Valentine’s Day weekend.”

Adrienne Barbeau at Horror Hound!

Hey there horror fans. Got some news here on the Horror Hound Weekend front. HHW is the convention at the end of March in Indianapolis that a whole bunch of the BGH crew will be attending. News came down today that there's another amazing guest added to the attendee list... Adrienne Barbeau!


Tokyo Zombie Coming in April

Japan... land of mass teen suicides, tentacle sex, Kobe beef... basically all the things I want for myself, but wouldn't dare dream of trying to actually attain.

Now you can add to the list of things Japan has, "films that look vaguely like Shaun of the Dead". This one's a horror/comedy called "Tokyo Zombie", and is coming to you in April via those horror mongers over at Anchor Bay. Here's the synopsis:

Ebayer Selling Clown Fear, Dry Humping

I really wish we had found this before the listing was closed, but Mark sent it to me last night and I couldn't think of anyone who would enjoy it more than you sick bastards.

The name of the listing on Ebay was "EXPERIENCE YOUR FEAR OF CLOWNS !!!!!!!@"

Confounding punctuation aside, I figured this was too good to be true so I kept reading. I was already thinking of calling the police after looking at that picture to the left... then I read on and decided the person who won is probably already dead anyway so, no big whoop. Here's the actual listing:

South By Southwest Genre Entries

South By Southwest (or SXSW if you're a cool kid) is a yearly "music, film and interactive festival" held in Austin, Texas.

"In its 22 years, SXSW has grown from a tiny music festival in the Texas capital into a massive, unavoidable media beast that reflects, discusses and showcases trends in culture and media but also often creates them."
