Video: Adam Green Shows the Danger of the Honor Bowl

Everyone's favorite creator of "Hatchet" Adam Green is back again with his annual Halloween short film. This year his Greenness schools us on the time honored tradition of the "honor bowl" and the dangers of not respecting it. In short, hilarity ensues, sort of. Not really. Whatever just watch the video and if you don't like it there's a related video of some girl who calls herself QueenofBlendingMUA talking about some contest and painted like a cat that's a lot creepier. Whatever rocks your world sickos.

Frozen (REVIEW)

Now that October has arrived, the time has come for horror fans to start queuing up their favorite films, putting up their Halloween decorations, and bundling up for the incoming cold. It's an exciting time of the year for sure, but once Halloween is over with, there are few seasonally-appropriate modern films that capture the bleakness of the upcoming winter months in the way that "The Shining" and "The Thing" both do so well.

Trailer: Red Band "Hatchet II" Trailer

Oh boy here we go. The "Hatchet II" trailer that all other “Hatchet II” trailers will be defined by. Lots of blood, lots of gore and most of all lots of talking. Yeah you heard me folks, talking. The film is coming to theaters in its full unrated glory so what better way to promote such an event than by releasing a trailer that's 75% talking. Well alright they also put the words that are being said on the screen, ya know for the hearing impaired, but who cares about reading.

Horror Headlines: Thursday July 15th, 2010

Fans of director Adam Green have reason to be extra happy this morning. Anchor Bay has announced that they will release the ski slope shocker "Frozen" on DVD and Blu-ray this September. Although the premise sounds a little goofy, the film looks absolutely fantastic. Personally, I can't wait.

IFC will unleash director Stuart Hazeldine's psychological thriller "Exam" to VOD on July 23rd. The film in question looks like a peculiar mix of "Saw" and "Cube", with a bit of David Fincher thrown in for good measure. However, depending on who you are, this might not be a recipe for delicious cinematic success.

In order to get misshapen butts into theater seats, Dimension is promoting Piranha 3D with a series of posters featuring the several scantily-clad women on a boat. Isn't this supposed to be a horror movie? I know genre fans are unnaturally obsessed with naked women, but this just sad. And people wonder why I'm not overly excited about this one.

In Real People News: 

If you need another excuse not to run with the bulls, behold the poor bastard who had his groin savaged by a large, angry animal with murder on its tiny mind. Although it pains me greatly to say it, but the guy had it coming. When you put yourself in these situations, you have to expect a little testicular carnage.

I always knew that the freakshows who play games all day on Facebook are seriously deranged. After all, hosing the blood of maladjusted teenagers off the sidewalk isn't too far removed from "Cafe World".

Horror at Sundance: "Frozen"

Remember that movie "Open Water" that came out a few years ago about the divers stuck in the middle of the ocean surrounded by sharks? "Hatchet" director Adam Green is probably hoping you don't because his new movie "Frozen" looks to be exactly the same idea, only with a chairlift over a desolate ski resort replacing the open sea and wolves standing in for the sharks. All cynicism aside, the real-life survival horror aspects of this could make this a fun "what would you do?" movie that will haunt skiers for years to come.

Marvel comics love their Stephen King adaptations lately, so its no surprise to hear that they will be publishing an adaptation of King's short story "N." from "Just After Sunset". Lucky for us, their adaptations have been pretty stellar so far.

Adam Green's Halloween Short Film

Something I learned today: For the past 11 years "Hatchet" director Adam Green has celebrated Halloween by directing a short film. This one is a spoof of those ridiculous "slap-chop" infomercials, with the predictably gory outcome you're always hoping for late at night while watching them. 'Tis the season!

Spiral (REVIEW)

A few years back Adam Green set the horror hype machine ablaze with his self-proclaimed “old school American horror” film “Hatchet”. The film was breathlessly awaited with many expecting it to herald the second coming of the slasher film, but upon its release audiences were treated to a fairly entertaining but ultimately only middling slasher film remarkable only in that it wasn’t as brain-gougingly terrible as most of its competition.
