AMC Fearfest Kicks Off October 18th!

Every Halloween season, I always look forward to AMC Fearfest. Fearfest kicks off on Monday, October 18 and runs through Sunday, October 31. This year's marathon will feature over 60 contemporary and classic horror films as well as interviews with horror directors and actors throughout each night's prime time film. In addition to premiere movies such as "House of Wax" (2005), "Evil Dead II" and "28 Days Later" (just to name a few), Fearfest has some pretty great movies lined up this year.

Halloween Countdown - 20 Days to go!

Twenty more days to go until Halloween. I know we here at BGH have some great party plans lined up during this month, as well as on Halloween, but we want to know: What are YOUR plans? Comment and let us know!

Horror Headlines: Friday October 8th, 2010

Dan Aykroyd delivered some positive news recently about the script writing process of the long awaited "Ghostbusters 3". Apparently him and the gang have created Bill Murry the "comic role of a lifetime". I'm guessing that means laser beam eyes that shoot seltzer water, because that would be crazy funny.

As if you needed another reason to visit Spanish Fort Alabama! "Halloween" will be showing in all its big screen glory for one night only along with a special Q&A session with Tony Moran (Michael Myers) and Brian Andrews (Tommy Doyle). So that's great news... for everyone in Spanish fort... Alabama.

William Peter Blatty and William Friedkin, the team behind "The Exorcist" are currently working on a new flick titled "Dimiter". The plot is full of large words that confused the hell out of me but you should know it's a supernatural thrill set in Jerusalem. I think there might be some split pea soup too.

Noomi Rapace of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" fame is apparently in talks to play a role in the upcoming "Alien" prequel. There's also about 70 other actresses in talks for the same role so I'm not sure if this is news or not. Let's go with yes because you're reading it. Sucka!

In Real People News: 

A group of German Catholics in Berlin are on the warpath to do away with Santa because they think he takes away from the true meaning of Christmas. There's nothing I can really say here that isn't going to be extremely offensive so I'm just going to let you put your own jokes together.

On this day in history: 

1974 – Franklin National Bank collapses due to fraud and mismanagement; at the time it is the largest bank failure in the history of the United States.

Enter the Bloody Good Horror Halloween Costume Contest

It’s Halloween time again kids and we here at Bloody Good Horror have decided to grab the holiday by the lips and yank.

Bloodtoberfest Week 1: The Spooky Beers

It’s that time of year again kids and I couldn’t be more excited. For us horror geeks it’s a time where we crack open all of our favorite flicks and go nutty for a full month. For beer geeks it’s the time of year when some of the best seasonal beers hit the shelves and everyone straps on some lederhosen to celebrate Oktoberfest. All in all for a guy like me it’s pretty much heaven for 31 days. It's also a great time to sound like a obnoxious prick by repeatedly pointing out that Oktoberfest is actually in September, but that's a different post.

9 Over-done Halloween Costumes

As Andy Williams once sang, "It's the most wonderful time of the year"! Sure, he was talking about a different holiday, but I think you'll all agree with me that the statement is just as fitting for Halloween! It's a time to get spooky, a time to get scary. A time to transform yourself into a wholly different character that resembles nothing of your true self and be somebody else for a night!

And who doesn't love that?

Horror Headlines: Friday November 6th, 2009

Thanks God this Halloween crap is over. Why don't horror fans get as excited about Thanksgiving? I'll take turkey and potatoes any day over bullshit candy. Grow up, people. Put on some khakis, that sweater your grandma made you and give thanks that we live in a country that allows a pathetic, 30-year-old man the right to spend $300 at a Halloween store for a crappy Freddy outfit that they are way too fat to wear. Amen. Pass the stuffing.

Zombieland? No, STAKE LAND, you dumb bitch! With the exception of the stupid tagline-- “A road movie...with teeth!” -- I think this might be cool. But, seriously, what is the deal with vampire film promotions and the use of the cliches “...with teeth!” or “...with bite!” Do you think that, the PR people, when sitting around in their offices, shooting wads of paper into a waste-basket with a basketball hoop over it, stumbling over one tagline after another that doesn't work, when they hit upon the “teeth” thing they high-five each other and snort coke off each other's balls in a celebratory circle-jerk because they think that they are the first ones to come up with it? They probably do.

Amy Heckerling, the has-been director of “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”, “Clueless” and some other shit, has signed on to direct the vampire romantic comedy “Vamps”, about “two young female vampires living the good life in New York until love enters the picture and each has to make a choice that will jeopardize their immort....”, oh shit, sorry, I just got my period all over the place. And on the day I chose to wear white pants!

Notorious schillers Bloody Disgusting have proclaimed that no-hit wonder Richard Kelly's “The Box” is “sure to deliver in more ways than one”. I learned this after trying to figure out how to close the annoying, full-screen roll-over ad for the damn movie, with absolutely no success. I ended up just opening another window to look at another site as the trailer continued to screen without any hope of skipping it. I think that, right now, we should all get on our knees and thank Eric and Mark for creating a website with no roll-over ads, pop-up ads or reviews based on how much the advertisers pay us. On the other hand, DRINK PEPSI, THE CHOICE OF A NEW GENERATION!

In Real People News: 

A Denver Blockbuster video employee stabbed himself in the leg to get out of work because he was afraid of getting written up for his torn work-pants. Whatever happened to faking diarrhea? Hell, I almost faked diarrhea just to get out of writing today's news!

Have you ever wanted to die, just to see how people at your funeral would react? A Brazilian bricklayer, thought to have been killed an a car-crash days earlier, showed up at his own funeral. According to witnesses, a loud “DUN-DUN-DUNNNN!” played on the soundtrack while an aged dowager proclaimed “Gasp and swoon, I've got the vapors!” while passing out in the most dramatic way possible.

A Dallas Cowboys cheerleader is in deep diarrhea after donning black-face to complete a Li'l Wayne costume. When are white people gonna learn that there's no place for black-face in today's culture, especially when entertainers like Li'l Wayne do a good enough job of putting it on themselves?

On this day in history: 

In 1918, The Second Polish Republic is proclaimed in Poland. The celebration was put on hold though as the country's citizens were unable to get out from inside their locked cars. Don't get me started on the screen-door submarine fleet! POLISH!

Share Your Halloween Costume!

Okay folks. In case you didn't know it...IT'S HALLOWEEN!

With this most excellent of holidays comes parties and costumes and honestly, who doesn't love dressing up just a little bit? Especially for us horror fans! So to celebrate the season I propose that all of us, staff and readers alike, share your alternate personality here on BGH!

If you follow me on Twitter, you saw this last night. For you new comers though, I present to you my own costume for Halloween revelrie.... The Swine Flu Survivalist.

10 Atmospheric Movies For Halloween Scares

Everybody does it. Autumn hits, the leaves die off and turn pretty colors and little ghosts and goblins come knocking at your door to beg for sweet stuff. It's Halloween, that time of year that requires, dare I say demands, thrills and chills.

Streaming Horror For Halloween

I love Halloween. Love it. Although I haven't been able to properly celebrate this creepy little holiday in several years, it still holds a special place in the deepest, darkest chamber of my inky black heart. Besides, it's a great excuse to sit around, stuff your face full of high-calorie candy, and watch an endless stream of genre-related motion pictures.
