Hey there, gang! Louis here, wrangling this morning's news from BGH boss Eric's cold, baby-like hands, delivering it fresh to you as you waste your company's time and money.
In what amounts to “jumping the shark” for two icons of horror, Dynamite Entertainment has announced the four-issue limited series “Army of Darkness: Ash Saves Obama”. Apparently, the Necronomicon ends up in the White House and Deadite wackiness ensues. Maybe it's violent demon possessions and boom-sticking that's keeping Obama from crafting a plan for increased gay rights? Am I right, gays?? Can I get a what-what???
The remake of Larry Cohen's iconic mutant killer baby flick “It's Alive”, about, um, a mutant killer baby, starring unknown James Murray and the vapid Bijou Phillips, goes straight to DVD from First Look Pictures on October 6. First Look might as well be considered horror's charitable foster family, adopting such previously troubled horror movies as the “Day of the Dead” remake and Lindsay Lohan's pregnancy laffer “Labor Pains”, which I wish they had mashed “It's Alive” up with.
A Connecticut church has come under fire for performing “gay exorcisms” on teens struggling with their homosexuality. Surprisingly enough, it's not a Catholic church...phew! Close one, guys! Hmmm...demons? Gays? Where's Ash??
In 1925, Charlie Chaplin's “The Gold Rush” premieres, thus creating a new type of pretentious comedy nerd who will swear up 'n' down that Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy and the Marx Brothers will never be equaled to in the world of comedy and the fact that you think Will Ferrell is funny makes you a plebeian who is beneath them. (In the music world, see “fans of prog rock”.) Until next time, keep your feet on the ground, and keep reaching for the stars!
