All of us here at the BGH offices are just tickled pink that "Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil" is finally getting released on VOD next month and we hope you get just as misty as we did when you see the new poster that's hit the tubes. The film, which follows two mountain men who end up being mistaken for a couple of murderers has been doing the convention circuit for some time now but didn't get picked up with a release date until recently. On a side note I would really appreciate it if the prick who keeps finishing the coffee and not making a new pot would cut the crap.
Holy crap has it already been 20 years since I rented "Subspecies" because it had a half naked woman on the cover? Time really flies doesn't it. Well now I can relive the disappointment of the movie not being soft core porn all over again because the good people at Full Moon Entertainment are giving the "classic" vampire flick a Blu-Ray release on July 25th. Unfortunately the only special feature on the disc will be the original "Video Zone" that appeared on the VHS for the movie but those were pretty fun. I wonder if any of those "Puppet Master" action figures are still for sale.
"Wake Wood" director David Keating is lined up to direct "The Cherry Tree" as his next spooky outing. The movie follows a 16 year old girl who chooses to have Satan's baby in order to save the life of her father. A choice facing many of our nation's youth today. I'm pretty sure MTV has a reality show based on it.
Ving Rhames has landed a role in the zombie apocalypse movie titled "A Zombie Apocalypse". Clever, I know. He's joined by Lesley-Ann Brandt, Gary Weeks, Johnny Pacer and Taryn Manning, who also happens to be in my top 5 all time favorite film hookers. A list coveted by actresses around the globe. The flick is currently filming in LA and is expected to be released later this year on DVD.
In Real People News:
A North Dakota man went a little overboard with his celebration of freedom this past 4th of July and accidentally blew his own head off when the fireworks display he set off in his front yard got a little out of hand. Police are still unsure how the mishap happened but I've officially decided this is how I want to go out... For freedom.
I like this guy's style. A Florida man is under arrested after he planted black widow eggs in his ex-girlfriends mailbox. Now see, that's commitment. Most guys would just toss a couple live spiders in there but this guy was in it for the long haul. Good for you my crazy ass friend. Good for you.
Matt Reeves has confirmed that "Cloverfield 2" will 100% happen and that J.J. Abrams is for sure involved. Good news if you liked the first. Of course he has absolutely no idea when the film is going to happen so it's most likely going to be a while. Which is good news if you hated the first.
Seth Grahame-Smith may be given the opportunity to co-direct the big screen version of his book "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" along with David Katzenberg. I will go on record as saying that 100% of movies directed by the author of the book it was based on have been awesome. Keep in mind the only one I can think of is "Maximum Overdrive" though.
In "hey I bet we can get these horror geeks to pay for anything" news the good people Shriek Show will bring the cult classic "Zombie Holocaust" to Blu-Day on April 19th. No confirmation on the extras but I assume there's a 5 minute video of the president of Shriek Show laughing hysterically because you paid 30 bucks for a movie that still looks like it was recorded on your parent's VHS camera.
"Wood Wake" director David Keating has tossed his hat in the ring to direct the Hammer Films remake of 1942 classic "Cat People". How do we close the door on this one? Do you need my approval? You can consider this my official approval. You're welcome, Keating.
A 40 year old ice cream truck operator is being brought up on charges after he was caught selling prescription drugs out of his truck. I'm pretty sure this was in the movie "Friday". Was it Big Worm? Did they arrest Big Worm? That guy seemed like a jerk.
