midnight meat train

I think the last time I saw a Julianne Moore movie I liked she was asking The Dude to plant his seed inside her. It's been a while. But good news, her next project is a witchs come to F crap up tale titled "The Seventh Son" and co-stars The Dude himself Jeff Bridges. Bad news, the project had already had its release date pushed once and now it's happened again, landing a January 17, 2014 outing now. Pray someone loses a toe.

It's probably been more than 20 years since I saw "Jacob's Ladder" and I'm not going to lie, it confused the holy living hell out of me. IMDB tells me it's about a Vietnam vet who starts to go nutso and seeings weird ass crap after the loss of his child. Not in those words exactly but you get the idea. My point here is I keep meaning to go back and watch the film again but now I don't have to because a remake is on it's way. Jeff Buhler, the fella who wrote "Midnight Meat Train", will pen the script and god willing he will dumb it down so I can understand it.

Crap, we completely forgot to celebrate last Wednesday. What was the special occasion you ask? Why it was exactly 2 years to the date before we get the new "Terminator" movie. I know, June 26th, 2015 is right around the corner, I'm really excited too.

David Bowie has been offered a role on the next season of "Hannibal" according to the show's creators. No word yet on if Mr. Stardust will take the role, but word has it he would be playing Hannibal's uncle on the second season of the NBC show. The good news here is I use to not really like David Bowie and now after hearing his music for about 30 years I've grown to really enjoy his work. So look out "Hannibal" producers, you might just have a new fan come 2043.

Humanity’s love/hate relationship with the subterranean world has existed since the dawn of time. The caves that ancient man hid in to escape his predators were the same foreboding places that remained in darkness, even during daytime. The fertile soil that grew crops to feed them eventually became their resting place in death. It seems appropriate that we would still find ourselves looking over our shoulder in fear as we head underground for the convenience of mass transit.

It looks like we've finally found where the studios draw the line on Sarah Michelle Gellar-starring Asian horror remakes. Her latest, "Possession", is going straight to DVD. You can check that out on May 12th, if that's your kind of thing.

Looks like we spoke too soon on that "Reanimator" remake. Stuart Gordon was so distraught when he heard the news that he called up his long time friend (and purported remake producer) Brian Yuzna to see what was going on. It seems that Yuzna had no idea, and so all of this may be one big crazy misunderstanding. That "Reanimator" TV series though? Still happening. Nothing we can do about that one I guess.

Clive Barker would love to make a "Midnight Meat Train" trilogy, even though he's well aware that it probably won't happen. Lots of other info on his career and upcoming projects at the link.

Even though he was given an "Executive Producer" credit, George Romero has nothing to do with the "Crazies" remake currently filming. He does say though that he recently had a chance to read the script, and that it "has a decent shot of being a good movie".

We review Clive Barker's Midnight Meat Train, explore the latest in funny Google searches, and Casey phones in from the traffic-copter.
