Bloody Good Halloween Horror Movie Choices for 2013

Halloween season is officially underway! And for all the like minded 'Halloween People' out there this is a time of joy, celebration, and triumph as the waves of 'normies' flock to each one of us for opinions on what to watch throughout the scariest of seasons.

Though we will always have great suggestions and fun picks to throw their way, we're not always 100% caught up to date with the best options during the season. So here at BloodyGoodHorror we have a listing of some of the strongest suggestions theatrically, rental wise, and even the most up to date Netflix Instant suggestions.

Aftershock (REVIEW)

When I watched “Aftershock” by Nicolas Lopez I knew immediately after watching it how I felt. Much like the recent “Evil Dead” remake I went back and forth during the movie but once I left the theater it hit me like a residual aftershock: that was dumb. Pardon my lame and immature word, but it’s the first thought that came to my mind. In big boy words, “Aftershock” suffered from a genre identity crisis and ultimately created a pointless story full of empty character development.

George Romero's 1981 film "Knightriders", possibly the only one he's ever made that makes the original "The Crazies" look tolerable, is finding its way to Blu-Ray on April 22. For those of you not familiar with the flick (check out our podcast but only pay attention to my opinion) it's about a group of medieval re-enactors who ride on motorcycles rather than horses. I'm not kidding. Oh and Tom Savini wears a speedo. It's awful.

Colin Trevorrow has been hand selected to direct "Jurassic Park 4" after a extensive search. Producer Steven Spielberg spent 4 weeks in the Amazon surviving only on what he hunted and smoking opium before traveling to the tallest mountain in the forest to meet his spirit animal who reportedly told him Trevorrow would be the right man for the job. He then traveled to the director's home and forced him at gun point to slaughter four chickens, two rabbits and one goat to solidify the deal. It's Jurassic god damn Park people. This shouldn't be taken lightly.

"Aftershock", Nicolas Lopez's English debut starring Eli Roth, will find it's way into limited theaters on May 10. Selena Gomez also pops up in the film about a group of travelers in Chile who find themselves trying to survive after an earthquake hits. Apparently in Chile people go around killing each other with axes when a earthquake hits. It's a strange wondrous land. Never visit it.

Paul W.S. Anderson will apparently return again to direct "Resident Evil 6". Oh man they got him? Sometimes you just get lucky.

In Real People News: 

Two geniuses in Utah are under arrest after they thought they could scam a doughnut shop by eating the some tasty treats with razor blades stuffed inside. It didn't work. They're in jail now.

A Milwaukee man is under arrest after he body slammed a security guard at his local DMV. The best part? It was all caught on video. Technology is the best thing ever.

Snapshots: You can't kill Eli Roth

Love him or hate him, Eli Roth is here to stay. Here he is taking on the lead role in the next "Eli Roth Presents" line of films titled "Aftershock", a post-earthquake thriller currently being shot in Chile by an up and coming Chilean director. No release date has been set, but after "The Last Exorcism" I'm willing to entertain whatever type of premise Roth chooses to throw at me.

I have no idea who Andrea Osvart is but from what I understand she gets acting roles because she is Hungarian and hot. Two things I will never be and that depresses me on a daily basis. So she's been cast in the new Eli Roth produced flick titled "Aftershock", a new film about the aftermath of a Chilean earthquake. Or an earthquake in Chile that is. Earthquakes don't have nationalities. I don't think so anyway. They don't talk and I have no idea what a Chilean accent sounds like so let's just move on.

Christopher Heyerdahl is apparently a guy who played a vampire in the "Twilight" films and now he's signed on to play a vampire in the HBO series "True Blood". The difference here is he's not going to sparkle so you see he's very versatile. I can already hear the direction he must be taking on the set. Alright Chris that was great, but I kind of felt like you were sparkling in that one. Can we try it again but this time, and I can't stress this enough, try not to act all sparkly?".

Liv Tyler has been confirmed to be taking the lead role in the next Ti West flick, currently titled "The Side Effect". Tyler will play woman who spends months as a part of a experimental subject for a global pharmaceutical company who finds out she's pregnant. Then she freaks out or something. I don't know I assume the movie will be 2 hours and the important crap will finally happen at around the 1:50 mark.

If you wanted to read the script for "Deadgirl 2" that will never be turned into an actual movie then I've got some exciting news for you. Scribe Trent Haaga has posted his would be sequel's script up on his blog for all to enjoy. If you're interested I've also got a script for "The Godfather 4" that I wrote a few years back when I had some downtime. It's all handwritten on bar napkins, but it's pretty awesome. I think. Honestly it has a lot of it has beer stains on it.

In Real People News: 

Dogs love toys.That's a fact. Even if that new toy happens to be a severed head that the dog found under the famous Hollywood sign in California. Inventive, you have to appreciate the dog's creativity.

I've never really understood people that get so excited about sports that they break crap. Running around like maniacs punching the wall because their team didn't score or their QB got arrested for forcing himself on a pit bull or something. And for the life I've me I don't understand this guy in Georigia who got so excited about the 49er's scoring a touch down that he decided to shoot up Applebee’s. Sports is no reason to ruin everyone's riblettes experience.

Well here's a surprise! "Paranormal Activity 3" has officially been confirmed and will see a release on October 21st of next year. I don't think they've actually written a script yet so I'd like to suggest that they focus more on the pool cleaner this time. That thing's got big time Hollywood star written all over it.

Eli Roth is just going to keep doing what he's doing and be dreamy to boot. He's now confirmed to be producing two new horror films, "Clown" and "Aftershock". I'm pretty sure you can figure out what the movies will be about from the titles. One has a guy dressed up as a clown who goes nuts and one is about the aftermath of a large earthquake. Try to guess which is which!

Here's a new one sheet for the Natalie Portman flick "Black Swan". I've seen a few trailers for this one and I'm still a little confused but I'm 99% sure Portman actually turns into a swan in the movie and makes out with Mila Kunis. Before she turns into a swan that is, although that would be a lot creepier if it was after. Freaks!

Looks like "Friday the 13th: Part 2 3D" may in fact be moving forward so get excited kids. Or don't, I don't really care at this point. Of course this news is all based on some blog post so who knows. I announced my candidacy for President on my blog and it didn't come true. Don't think I didn't try though!

In Real People News: 

A Wisconsin man took out his frustration over Bristol Palin's lackluster "Dancing with the Stars" routine by shooting his TV with a shotgun. I'm not saying I condone what he did but I understand. Get your shit together, Palin!

Two Kentucky men were sentenced to probation after a man said he was forced to eat his beard after an argument. How the hell something like that comes into a conversation I have no idea but if things get so heated that you have to eat a beard it's probably best to leave the authorities out of it.
