It's spooky day kids! The most magical day of the year for all of us horror nerds. Tonight is the night we all sit down and watch our favorite movies, sob in our parent's basement because we've never found love and finish off the evening by pleasuring ourselves to internet porn. Enjoy it, Halloween only comes around once a year. Thank god.
Fede Alvarez, the fella who wrote and directed the "Evil Dead" remake has dropped word that if a sequel does happen it won't be with him involved. No word on if the producers will still move forward with the project but if I was a bettin man I'd say they most likely would. Cause ya know, money and stuff right?
Because it's Halloween and because it's spooky time here's a video from the folks over at Funny or Die. It's called "Are These Tales Spooky to You?". Those of you who are old might catch on the resemblance to the old "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" show that was on Nickelodeon. Those of you who are old and didn't get laid in high school might remember the host of the video as Marilyn Manson, of music old ladies used to protest fame. Enjoy.
While I was on my crazy leave it was announced by Michael Dougherty that "Trick R Treat 2" was in fact moving forward. No other details were really given but now it looks like that Michael has let out that we'll for sure see some witches in this next installment, we'll get just a touch of Sam's back story and there will most likely be a third film to complete the trilogy. He also said that I'm his muse and that he thinks I've lost weight and that I look perfect. That part didn't make it into the interview but I'm sure it was said.
According to Ridley Scott he's already got "Prometheus 2" and "Prometheus 3" written and ready to go. He plans on them seeing the light of day in 2014 and 2015, respectively. He's also apparently completed his taxes for the next 5 years and is actively working on that model ship that's been sitting in your closet for three years.

And here's a group of guys that dressed up as bloodied flight attendants from the Asiana Airlines crash for a Halloween party. Because ya know, Chicago.
A 41 year old man is under arrest after he apparently assaulted his girlfriend with a cat. I have no idea how you really do that but I like to think there was some sort of freezing involved to make an elaborate frozen cat sword. Most likely that didn't happen though and is probably impossible.
At a certain point while watching "Evil Dead" I thought to myself that this might just be the goriest film I have ever seen in theaters. That's a caveat worth noting. I would expect that most people visiting this site regularly have absolutely seen gorier films, but I can confidently say that there are things in "Evil Dead" that your average movie-goer has never before seen on a big screen. It's this ability to mimic, and at times honor the splatter-house roots of the original "Evil Dead" that makes this remake such a success.
Wednesday is hump day my friends. Look around your office and do what you have to do.
Good news kids! A 5 minute clip of the upcoming little screen adaptation of Stephen king's "Bag Of Bones" has made it's way online. The miniseries focuses on a grief stricken husband who returns to the lakeside house him and his wife owned while dealing with a bitter custody battle. I want to be 100% honest. The download instructions for this clip confused the hell out of me so I didn't watch it. I want this relationship to be built on honesty.
The majority of the "Evil Dead" news flying around these days is mostly just interviews with people attached to the flick saying it's going to be awesome and fans will be happy. But today, today my friends, on this glorious of all hump days, we have news that director Fede Alvarez is planning on taking the show to New Zealand to begin filming in March. And if a bunch of sheep herders with strange accents doesn't ring true to the original "Evil Dead" I don't know what does.
If you love David Cronenberg then you're going to have somewhat pleasant feelings towards his son Brandon Cronenberg and his new project "Antiviral". Proof is in the first still we're getting today from the film that follows an employee at a clinic that sells injections of live viruses harvested from sick celebrities to obsessed fans. Don't let the fact bother you that the guy in the photo has a pony tail and by definition anyone with a pony tail is a prick. Please, let's try to be adults about this.
Honestly the only reason we're going to discuss these set picks from Neil Jordan's "Byzantium" if because I find them so confusing. They're of Gemma Arterton, who plays a vampire in the flick, prancing around the coast of Ireland in a red dress with all her goods hanging out. Sounds awesome I know but then you get to the final shot of some strange PA who appears to be examining Arterton's lady bits. I have so many feeling going on inside me right now I'm not sure what to do. I'm laughing and crying at the same time. I think it's best we call it a day.

Here's a story about a fashion model in Texas who has been seriously injured after she walked into a plane propeller. Are you laughing right now? Congratulations! You're officially a monster.
Do not mess with the fire department in Tennessee. Or at least don't forget to pay the 75$ annual fee you owe to them. Because they will come to your house while it's burning and watch that giant trailer you call a home go up in flames. At least they didn't roast marshmallows. That would just be in poor taste.
